STAGE v. SCREEN DEBATE [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 24 June 1933

STAGE v. SCREEN DEBATE MR. HAYWARD, of General Theatres, pointed out, in a debate on the stage versus the screen, that there are 1200 Australian picture theatres and only 12 active legitimate theatres. This was really the last word in the argu- ment, and proved conclusively that the screen has already won the right to the lion's share of the entertainment business. There is still room for both, of course, and while the stage can never compete with the films in adaptability, the films can never pro- vide the personal appeal of the stage.

PROBATION Her romance! Must everything be taken from her? [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 24 June 1933

PROBATION Her romance! Must every- thing be taken from her? THERE was a vigor- ous knock on the door. "Simpson, are you there?—Simp- son !" Nurse Simpson turned from the window. She was small and slight, and, contrary to regulations, her hair persisted in escaping from her prim white cap—"a tail to every corner of the heavens," as the Matron put it. "Simp-son!" Nurse Simpson sighed. She wished the other nurses wouldn't call her by her surname, like being in a school. It seemed years since anyone had called her Frances . . . "Come in," she answered. Nurse Kirkland entered the room. She was tall, thick-set, and capable, with hands made for lifting; no mat- ter who the patient, she never needed help.   "Dreaming again," she said. "I'm just going off duty and I want to know if I can borrow your suede gloves." Nurse Simpson mentally compared her own small hands with Nurse   Kirkland's large ones. "If you think—" she said hesitat- ingly. "Oh, sure, I needn't wear...

Century-Old Linen [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 24 June 1933

Century-Old Linen Buxom French housewives wander around the mountainous stack of linen in the shops, buying it up in dozen yards. For despite the economic depression they can never resist the annual white sales, and when their own linen requirements are replete they start buying for their daughters even if they are only a year old. In consequence of this storing it is not unusual to find in their cupboards hand-woyen cloths a century old. They love their linen, and not even the tea cloths escape their eternal embroider- ing and drawn thread. But at least there is not much lingerie left to embroider nowadays, for it is re- duced to a silk-stockiagette two-in-one, cut skin tight, which, with elastic, moulds the hips impeccably. This is all one can wear beneath the tight-fitting dresses,   so that the predicted revival of pre-war   undies with their flounces, ribbons, and   laces has not materialised.

TIPS On Curtains [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 24 June 1933

TIPS On Curtains CURTAINS are the main furnish- ing of a room, and so on them and their harmony or contrast with the walls de- pends the character of   your room. For sunny as- pects in our bright atmo- sphere a good plan is to have double sets thick and thin. On the shady side single sets of semi-transparent curtains are sufficient. If you prefer the more diaphanous window curtain on the sunny side, you will be faced with the necessity of sun blinds. The choice of the materials used in the curtains will depend on the rooms. Brocades, damasks, and vel- vets look better in the spacious room, while silk and chintzes (plain and patterned) go well with the intimacy of flats.

J[?]lly Ho! A Shopping We Shall Go! [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 24 June 1933

                    This week finds this "shopping sleuth" in very homely vein. Cuddlesome baby garments evoked thoughts of general warmth throughout the home, and here they are. For Very Tiny Folk What is the fascination about baby garments? Is it just the tiny things themselves, or do they evoke a mental picture of the cuddlesome mites for whom they are designed? A glimpse of "something new and something blue," this time for a babe, not a bride, ar- rested my roving gaze on my tour this week. Investigation revealed the most adorable little padded dressing gowns, hand-embroidered. For a very long time they have been difficult to procure, and this enterprising firm had just pur- chased the first shipment landed of late. The lengths ranged from 18 to 22 inches. Hand-embroidered and finished with silk cord, they are only 7/6 to 10/6. In jacket &nbsp...

Our Dogs THE BULLDOG [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 24 June 1933

Our Dogs THE BULLDOG OH, the horrid, wrinkled thing! But wouldn't you look tough and worried if you had had to grab bulls by the snout for a liv- ing? Bulldogs seem to have been evolved from an early mastiff-like breed by our sporting forbears, who found great delight in bull- baiting. Since those rough days the bulldog has lived a life of ease, lost most of his fighting powers, and emerged as a civi- lised being with a taste for cynicism and a desire to just sit around. His looks terrify the evil-doer, but you'll find him the most amiable of companions, a quiet, reserved Ugly Duckling with a heart of gold.

Make yourself this ROLL-UP Manicure SET IT WILL KEEP YOUR SET HANDY [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 24 June 1933

Make yourself this ROLL-UP Manicure SET IT WILL KEEP YOUR SET HANDY Nearly all of you have made pochettes at some time or other, and found the process perfectly simple. It is even simpler to make a roll-up manicure case, in which to house your implements. All you require is a length of thick silk or moire ribbon, 11 inches long by 9 inches wide, a piece of silk of the same dimensions for lining, a yard and a half of inch-wide ribbon and a skein of embroidery silk. THE RIBBON FASTENING Turn down a narrow hem all round the silk, and tack it securely. Treat the lining in the same way, and, laying it flat on the silk, tack the two to- gether, being careful to get the edges exactly level. Secure them by means of fancy stitching worked in embroid- ery silk, on the lining side, taking special note to take the stitches through to the outside of the case. Now cut a piece of ribbon a few inches longer than the case itself. Find the centre of the case and fix the rib- bon across, catching it d...

Blessed Barrier A STORY OF.. RELEASE [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 24 June 1933

Blessed Barrier A STORY OF . . RELEASE However, in the end it was Shirley who was to find her way into the tormented labyrinth of Sterling's dilemma. SOMEWHERE in the heart, the mind, and the spirit of young Sterling was a barrier   as high, practically, as   his life was long. Had you even sug- gested anything of this   to any member of the Buhlow family, they would have met the implication with loyal and heated denial. How could Sterling secretly feel him- self an outsider in the Buhlow family, when not one of the Buhlow children, although they had quite simply been told when they each became eight, had an atom of consciousness that Sterling was not blood brother. As a matter of fact, bending too far backward perhaps to achieve this end, Ann and Proscow Buhlow took pains to see to it that Sterling received even more than their own children of parental solici- tude. The fact that Sterling had been adopted by Ann   during a previou...

Things That Happen HOUSES BY TRAIN [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 24 June 1933

HOUSES BY TRAIN TELL "More Ree" that houses have been sent by train in New South Wales, as well as America (A.W.W., 10/6/33). When Cobar fizzed out, twelve years ago, houses were sold on the land, for removal. Most went to Dubbo, be- ing packed in sections on the trucks. For days the local train worked at top pressure, carting Cobar to other centres, while the gaps in the residential area widened into wide open spaces. Out at Broken Hill, residences are built on mining tenements. When the tenement holder allowed his miner's right to lapse, or desired to change his address, he dismantled the old home, stacked in on to a jinker, and carted it to a new site, freshly secured under the miner's right—the cheapest land rental in the world, for it is only 5/- per an- num for a quarter-acre.—"Pat Bushie." * * * KEEN BUSINESS I CAME across a most amusing "busi ness" sign outside a junk dealer's place in a New South Wales country town. Situated about one hundred miles from Sydney close beside ...

MAKE-UP as a FINE ART! THE BODY BEAUTIFUL The Choice and Use of Cosmetics [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 24 June 1933

MAKE-UP as a FINE ART!   The Choice and Use of Cosmetics Possibly nature has been kind in the gift that is your inheritance, but even so your interest must not wane if you would keep the beauty that is yours. With the judicious application of powder, rouge, and those etceteras that mean so much, it must be said that make-up gives the opportunity to all who will use it advisedly and well. Choice of Cosmetics IN the first place the requirement of a make-up that does not demand constant touching up must be stressed, for real beauty and attractive- ness depend primarily upon this factor. Whether your activities are centred in business or the social whirl, that well- groomed appearance is essential, and herein the complexion plays no minor part. Remember that there is a method of applying cosmetics that ensures a per- fect blend for hours on end. There are two equally important items that assist in bringing about this satis- factory result:— (1) The careful selection of cos-...

MISS MARGARET BANNERMAN The Beautiful English Theatrical Star is another of the famous women who use and recommend Mercolized Wax as the Ideal Skin and Complexion Beautifier. The loveliest girls use it THE loveliest girls and women use Mercolized Wax to clear the skin, and to keep it clear. They prefer it to greasy creams, for these are liable to clog the pores and merely mask blemishes which should be removed. Mercolized Wax absorbs impurities, and thus removes all defects, such as freckles, moth patches, roughness, and accumulated waste matter; it clears the skin thoroughly, leaves the pores free to breathe. Follow the example of these lovely clear- skinned girls who succeed in keeping a clear, fresh skin always in spite of sum-   mer sun and winter wind. Begin to-night to use Mercolized Wax. Watch the rapid improvement in the health and beauty of your skin. This new beauty will have come to stay if you protect it always with daily use of Mercolized Wax. It is un- dou...

...WHAT MY PATIENTS ASK ME [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 24 June 1933

. . . WHAT MY PATIENTS ASK ME **BY A DOCTOR** WHAT NOSE BLEEDING MEANS Question: Is it true that nose bleed- ing in adults is a sign of high blood pressure? It is quite true that one of the symp- toms of high blood pressure may be nose bleeding. But that is a very dif- ferent thing from saying that nose bleeding in adults is necessarily a sign of high blood pressure. It can be a sign of one of a number of other far less important things. Often there may be some local cause. There may be something amiss with either of the nasal passages. High blood pressure is rarely seen below the age of 35. Nevertheless, if people suffer from persistent nose bleed- ing, it is wise to have the matter seen to, so that any abnormality may be put right in its earliest possible stage. To treat nose bleeding (not arising from a serious cause) it is often useful to put cold water or ice on the bridge of the nose, and to place the feet in hot water. MENTAL PATIENTS Question: Are asylums for the insane any ...

FASHION PARADE Soft, Rich Furs Exhibit New Cut and Twist [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 24 June 1933

by JESSIE TAIT   Soft, Rich Furs Exhibit New Cut and Twist Capelet of mink fur worn with   a dress or coat. THE generous designers   splash fur patches as epaulettes, lapels, shoulder squares, and whirls around cuffs, half-sleeves, and in pagoda-like extensions that add more width. Fox fur scarves are gone. Fox fur harnesses, twined around the arms, have replaced them. Monkey fur trimmings, puffed out on to barrel sleeves, made into fringes and capes. These times, when so many women have taken to working —if they can get something to do—and the others are generally so busy at home, there is not much time for im- practical clothes. The Paris designers have kept the ideal of easy nonchalance before them in designing the new day- time clothes. An outstanding sign of the times is the revival of interest in tailored suits which, although they do not resemble the "untouchable" mode, can definitely be worn for all daylight hours. Chanel has made one o...
