Variety In Evening Decolletes [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 17 June 1933

Variety In Evening Decolletes THERE may not be     very much change in the present evening silhouette, which re- mains, for the most part, long and slim, with moderate fulness   near the feet for comfort in   dancing; but there is immense variety in the decolletes. All types are seen; high in the front and low in the back; low in the front and right up to the nape of the neck in the back; draped in cowl lines either in the back or   in the front; cut in a square, an oval, a V, or a U shape in the   back ; asymmetric, that is unlike   on the two sides, one of which   may be off the shoulder while the other covers the top of the arm.   There may be enormous sleeves or just shoe-lace width shoulder straps, which can hardly be seen.

A Shopping We Shall Go! J[?]lly Ho! [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 17 June 1933

    TALLY-HO! A Shopping We Shall Go!                     Last week the "shopping sleuth" heard murmurs of pneumatic soles—for shoes, be it said!—and forthwith looked into the matter. Wherefore the shopping tour has been accomplished this week with a light heart and absolute perfection of foot comfort. "Walking On Air" The shoes that produced this emi- nently satisfactory state of affairs are made with—literally—pneumatic souls. One finds oneself literally "walking on air," in a way that banishes aching feet and the mental and physical ex- haustion that follow in their train. These shoes are made in the very smartest designs. They are made for speed, and for comfort, too. They can be purchased with or without arch sup- ports, and the prices range from 22/6. A word or two in season while we are discussing this important branch of ...

MOSTLY ABOUT MEN THE COPHETUA COMPLEX [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 17 June 1933

MOSTLY ABOUT MEN     BY JANE ANN SEYMOUR THE COPHETUA COMPLEX ! THE engagement of Margaret Hagon, daughter of Sydney's Lord Mayor, to John Collins, of "Nindooinbah," Queens- land, is causing almost as much non- sensical talk as did that of Pat Richards to the Earl of Jersey. Tennyson seems to have started the Cophetua Complex which exists in minds that hold a lovely girl is "lucky," if she marries a man, "of higher social status, my dear!" Pat Richards' immediate forbears either bred merinos or killed a commoner brand in a big way. I forget which, but it is immaterial. The point is that, from a merino sheep to a Jersey earl—or, in other words, the social inequalities of that pair existed only in airless minds, where snobbery breeds its phantom hordes. Now trot our YOUR mixed metaphors! In the case of Margaret and her John, both young people are descended from stalwarts who have helped to develop the industries of a young country. One Sydney weekly announced...

Latest Shows "THE MIDDLE WATCH" [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 17 June 1933

Latest Shows By a Woman In the Audience "THE MIDDLE WATCH"   SYDNEY evidently is in the mood for light theatrical fare, for the Seyler- Hannen Company's neglect during the runs of 'The Breadwinner" and "Escape"' seems to be a thing of the past now that Ian Hay's farcical comedy has made its appearance. The honors definitely go to the men, with the exception of Athene Seyler, who (although minus the American accent generally used) is always entrancingly vivacious, especially in her pyjamas. Margery Caldicott carries off "Aunt Charlotte" satisfactorily, but the girls are no better than can be found on Sydney's amateur stage, and are un- becomingly frocked and coiffured. Nicholas Hannen's part fits him like a glove, and George Benson's "Ogg" and John Longden's naval man are also life- like studies. Nobody pretends that the play is anything but a farce, and the action moves at top speed, with con- tinual little screams of excitement from the audience. — Criterion. "TO-NIGHT...

How to play CONTRACT BRIDGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 17 June 1933

How to play CONTRACT BRIDGE By FRANK CAYLEY ARTICLE '   "THE SCORING" Scoring in contract bridge is totally different and on a far grander scale than auction scor- ing. This makes it necessary to play for about a third of one's normal stake. THE difference is most pronounced when a side has won a game. At this point it is said to become "VULNER- ABLE," and any penalties it may incur are automatically increased, even though no double has been made. For example, if you fail by one trick to make an undoubled, non-vulnerable contract, the opposition take 50 points, as they would in auction. If, however, you fail by one trick when your side is vulnerable, they take 100 points. If you go down very far it is liable to prove costly owing to the fact that penalties increase in magnitude for each successive under-trick, except when you are not vulnerable and not doubled. Reference to the table of under-tricks will make this point quite clear. To compensate for this harsh treat- m...

New STAR in the FILM SKY Now! Dorothy Wilson— A New Type With New Ideas 'n Everything! [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 17 June 1933

New STAR in the FILM SKY Dorothy Wilson— A New Type With New Ideas 'n Everything!   Here is a new star on the horizon—a meteor, but she has come to stay. She is tiny—just over five feet of charming femininity forms the link between her THERE were no extravagant gestures, no bizarre fads, not even a tongue-twisting, foreign-sound- ing name to focus attention upon her. Her gestures consisted of punching the keys of a typewriter at the R.K.O Studios. She has a weakness for Anatole France's novels, and her name is just Dorothy Wilson. That's all! When one reviews Dorothy's past it is difficult to state exactly what it was that drew the directorial eye upon her. Maybe it was her flair for talking business with men, for it affords her the keenest entertainment to lend a sympathetic ear to the harassed man of affairs. That, however, is mere surmise. The fact is that she finds herself with a           large contra...
