A Clever Kookaburra [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 24 June 1933
A Clever Kookaburra By Joy Talbot Little Betty lived in the bush. She was playing one day on the grass which surrounded her homestead. All around her were tall gum trees, and lovely birds were singing in them. Suddenly, a long black snake slipped silently from behind a clump of bushes, and came slowly towards little Betty, who, not knowing of the impending danger, kept playing with her funny old rag doll. But, the ever watchful eyes of an old kookaburra, who was perched day and night, on the branches of the big- gest gum-tree, saw it. With a slight flutter, he swooped down and picked up the snake in his strong beak, then whoop! He flew quick- ly into the sky. Then thud! He let it drop down on to the |PRIZE CARD to Terry ground. He did this |Keating, 12 Cameron again and again till |Street, Strathfield. he was quite sure that no life remained in the reptile. Betty's mother, who had followed the actions of the kookaburra, was very much im- pressed, and, from that day the old kookaburr...
News of the Golf Clubs [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 24 June 1933
News of the Golf Clubs &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; When Carnarvon Golf Club held the annual ball at the Palais Royal over 200 members and their friends danced away the happy hours, and were charmed by the decoration of a golfing Valentine on each table. * * * In winning the monthly medal at Kogarah, Miss O'Sullivan reduced her handicap to 19, and only requires one card of 88 or better to bring her into the silver division. Another player, making light of her handicap, is Miss Maidment, who joined the club last season, and quickly came down from 36 to 28. This year she is playing splen- didly, and Kogarah members predict a bright golf future for her. Miss Maid- ment, with a fine effort of 91 gross last week, is now on the 23 mark. Prettily situated Woollahra links has an associate membership of 50, but as yet the course is too short for affiliation with the L.G.U. The championship is at present being played and among the well known golfers competing are Mrs. Hoelsche...
DAVIS CUP Men Have GOOD Partners [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 24 June 1933
DAVIS CUP Men Have GOOD Partners OUR Davis Cup representatives have certainly taken the pick oí partners for the Wimbledon mixed doubles cham- pionships. Jack Crawford will be playing with Fraulein Aussem, who won the Wimble- don singles championship in 1931. This arrangement has been of long standing, and the other Australian representatives have annexed partners with outstanding performances for the mixed doubles. McGrath will be partnered with Mrs. B. C. Covell, who was one of the first English representatives sent to play in the Whiteman Cup in America as far back as 1923. She again succeeded a year later in beating Mrs. Mallory and Helen &nbsp; Wills. At one time, at Wimbledon, she was within two points of beating Senorita d'Alvarez. She has won numerous events, including the Forest Hills cham- pionships in America, and three cham- pionships at Bombay. Mrs. J. B. Pittman will be remembered by Australian women players who played against her in the match Australia v. Grea...
They Do It In Victoria— ... Why Not N.S.W.? [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 24 June 1933
They Do It In Victoria . . . Why Not N.S.W.? ALTHOUGH the N.S.W. Women's Basket Ball Association has been in existence for nearly five years, it has not yet held a week to which coun- try teams are invited to play. Melbourne players are ahead of us in this direction, and just lately they have finalised their sixth year of country con- tests. The number of entries have al- ways increased with the years. Owing to rain, the contests this time in Melbourne were played in the indoor courts at the Exhibition Building. The two teams from Warrnambool were the winners of their division, and the two Wonthaggi teams were the runners-up. Warrnambool II were the winners of the finals. Miss L. C. Mills, president of the Vic- torian Basketball Association, presented the winners with miniature cups.

Clarice Kennedy Will Defend Title &nbsp; CLARICE KENNEDY, who won &nbsp; &nbsp; the two miles State cham- &nbsp; &nbsp; pionships last year, will be given an opportunity to defend her title &nbsp; again this year. The New South Wales Women's Amateur Ath- &nbsp; leties Association has definitely decided to run another cross- country championship in August.

They Still Play CROQUET [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 24 June 1933
They Still Play CROQUET SURELY no other body of sportswomen are at present as active as the &nbsp; Women's Croquet Association. They certainly seem to make a hobby of play- ing matches. Another match—the Champion of Champions—has been added to the list, giving great satisfaction to the players. In this latter match, each club plays off to find their champion, and when found, she plays in matches against the other club leaders, until the Champion of Champions is found. Last year the final matches were played at Cammeray, and Mrs. Taylor, of Cheltenham, was the winner. The Oldfield Cup and the Pennant matches are being played at present. Every club enters three Grade teams for the Pennant matches, and the club that wins the most number of matches at the end of the year is proclaimed the winners. The croquet players' activities do not cease here, for at Rushcutters Bay twelve players from A Grade, and a like number from B Grade, are at present engaged in playing off for the Gol...

&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Memorial to &nbsp; Daphne Akhurst &nbsp; For the purpose of perpetuat- &nbsp; ing the memory of one so beloved by everyone as the late &nbsp; Mrs. Cousins (Daphne Akhurst), &nbsp; a meeting will take place at the New South Wales Lawn Tennis &nbsp; Association's rooms, Pitt Street, on June 27. All women delegates from the affiliated clubs have been invited to attend, so that they may discuss a suitable and appropriate memorial.
HARDCOURT TOURNAMENT PROVED POPULAR Over 500 Players Participate [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 24 June 1933
HARDCOURT TOURNAMENT PROVED POPULAR Over 500 Players Particípate The Northern Suburbs Combined Hardcourts tennis tourna- ment, which was expected to last two week-ends only, is still going strong. Certainly the committee did not expect such a number of entries as they received. Well over 500 players competed in the tournament, and these games are not only popular with the players, but with spectators as well. THE Northern Suburbs Combined Hardcourt Championships have been particularly well patronised, and the fact that a wet week-end intervened, did not dampen their ardor. Perhaps the only unfortunate incident throughout the tournament occurred in the Women's Doubles Championship. This match was the semi-final. Mrs. and Miss Mitchell had won their first set, 6-2, against Mrs. Harper and Miss Hayes, and were leading 5-3 in the second set. Mrs. Mitchell played a ball which appeared to land in the court, but the umpire gave the decision against them. From that point Mrs. Harper and Mis...
They're Waiting For the Next Tour [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 24 June 1933
They're Waiting For the Next Tour With the country hockey clubs' colors &nbsp; on shields, which lent a gay tone to the surroundings, and huge bunches of gum tips placed here and there around the room, the New South Wales Women's Hockey Associations gave a farewell ball to their country visitors. Miss Fielding, deputy president, acted as hostess, and was ably assisted by other members of the committee. It was no mean effort finding partners for over a hundred girls, but the N.S.W.W.H.A., known for its excellent organising powers, lived up to its reputation, and found men enough for everyone. Other ball committees would, no doubt, like to know how it was done.
STARTING EARLY [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 24 June 1933
STARTING EARLY &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Y.W.C.A. Baseball teams seem to have adopted the Scouts' motto of being pre- pared. Preparations for their summer competitions have already commenced. Thelma Thane, of the Golden Eagle team, has undertaken to deliver lec-W tures on play every week and Rita Jones, State secretary, will also lecture on scoring. This means that the players will soon be able t0 umpire and score at their own games.
MAKING BASEBALL EASIER [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 24 June 1933
MAKING BASEBALL EASIER WOMEN'S baseball associations in the various States are at present working under separate rules, some of which conflict and hinder the playing of interstate games. An effort is now being made to establish uniform rules for players throughout the Commonwealth, such as all other sporting bodies already have. The Australian Women's Council will meet in Sydney at the beginning of next year, when an Australian Constitution will be adopted, and office- bearers elected. Friendly matches will be played by the State teams then. A team has visited Brisbane and Mel- bourne from Sydney, and found that each State played under different rules. A committee is now preparing a book of rules for Australian baseball women players, and they expect to finalise this shortly. After that all interstate fixtures will come under the same ruling. Mrs. Peatfield is president of the association.
EGG HINTS [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 24 June 1933
EGG HINTS WHEN you poach eggs and they get broken it means that you have cooked them too quickly. The water has boiled too roughly and has torn the albumen, which is the part of the egg which sets when it is heated. But if poached eggs have been cooked too slowly they are also liable to break because the albumen has not had a chance to set properly at all. WHEN you are making plain scrambled eggs you add a little milk, but if you are scrambling eggs with tomatoes you leave out the milk because the acid in the tomato would curdle it. * * * IF fried eggs have a thick, brown skin outside it means that they have been cooked in too great heat and left in the hot fat too long.

Army Uniforms By Poiret Famous Fashion Designer's Many Vogues [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 24 June 1933
Army Uniforms By Poiret Famous Fashion Designer's Many Vogues One would not imagine that army uniforms would have to be designed by the creator of beau- tiful Parisian frocks. But they once were! DURING the war a new uniform for &nbsp; the French soldiers was designed by the famous M. Paul Poiret, whose fashion work is well known. Thc hap- pening was not without its humor. Describing the incident in his memoirs, M. Poiret says: "That was not my way of making garments. I did not know how. Not without showing some contempt for my ignorance, the Commissariat officer POIRET drew up a note addressed to all the tailors of France and Navarre. It was a ludicrous document, in which one read: ". . . that the buttonhole of the side of the capote must be orientated ac- cording to the bisector of the angle in such sort that its projection would meet the last buttonhole in front, etc. . . ." This notice in the Bulletin Officiel was sent to the regimental tailors in every district, and eac...
