AUTUMN AND WINTER. FASHION FEATURES. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 21 March 1930

AUTUMN AND WINTER. I - — 1 FASHION FEATURES. The autumn and winter silhou ette directs to a new ideal. More material will be required' in the & making of frocks, but method of arrangement and intricate^' vorkmanship will combine in the^ maintaining of the slender line. ' The fitted and tbe semi-fitted bo-J dice will be the vogue. The natural'] waist is clearly defined in models in frequently, the normal waist is ac centuated by a slim belt, or fine tuck ings, diagonially placed. Interest concentrates chiefly upon the skirt. A plain fitted hodice. with, high back neck and slight oval or V-front opening, may be attached to'( a flounced skirt mounted on a tight! jly fittde hip yoke in square, rounded,! or angle form terminating towards j the lett hip. I Very attractive is the new model showing a semi-fitted bodice with high neck line and narrow wrist-length sleeves; the bodice being bloused above the high hips by a tightly drawn belt or band finished, in left.1 side effect, wit...

LATEST FOR LADIES BROWN - BEIGE - BLUE REMEMBER THESE IN REPLENSHING WARDROBE SVELTE LINES DEMANDED ON NEW MODELS REVIVE CORSET [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 21 March 1930

LATEST FOR LADIES BROWN - BEIGE - BLUE REMEMBER THESE IN REPLENSHING WARDROBE SVELTE LINES DEMANDED ON NEW MODELS REVIVE CORSET W# don't talk . of Fashion this . .season. Instead, we discusG the elevated waist and the swish of hems round our beels. Why have the designers foisted these styles on siaffering women, many of whom are already worn to nervous slimness. For let it be clearly understood although frocks have returned old fashions, feminine ' figures have not returned to old shapes. Judging by some ot tne new evening frocks which have ar- ' rived in Adelaide, women will need to be about seven feet tall, and bips, which must be swathed , must be of the snake variety. The in-and-out- variety of curving Venus is decidedly not wanted, -and it looks as if the old bedpost story — with corset laces and all — will, after the lapse of many years, again have more than a- modicum of truth. It is no use women saying they won't put their bodies into whalebone again; only a very small perce...

BLOUSES IN NEW GUISE. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 21 March 1930

BLOUSES IN NEW GUISE. Bearing but little resemb'ance 4c' the blouses we tucked inside the! bands of our skirts 10 or 15 years! ago, these items of apparel are once more in favor. Modern blouses have taken on modern lines, and embody the very newest ideas. Present-day wearers' would not tor one moment tolerate that 'sack- ied-in-the-middle' ap pearance of the old time garment.' But they have no need to fear, for' this characteristic has vanished with the high-boned collar and like horrors to which we once submitted without complaint. i In every instance, practically, the blouse has a jumper effect, with deep basque to cover the waist line of the skirt, 'and extend below the hips. Really speaking, such blouses are clostlv related to jumpers, but, in accordance with' the whim q£ fashion designers, they have been labelled! blouses. j Two blouses seen recently em bodied new features. j would seem to be ever so J slightly related to the quaint bodices \ worn on high days and holidays by j...

Importance of Strain. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 21 March 1930

Importance of Strain. j Many poultry keepers purchase cockerels from a different breeder each year with the idea that a con-| stant change of blood contributes toj the hardiness of their stock, lit probably does so, although the con stant crossing of totally unrelated! and unblended strains s;ometimes has a disappointing eirect on tne egg yield. A safer plan is to purchase in rotation from two or three breeders! whose fowls have given good reeults i in the past. I |

LONGER FROCKS. DRIFTING WITH FASHION'S TIDE. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 21 March 1930

LONGER FROCKS. DRIFTING WITH FASHION'S TIDE. Even those of us who declared em phatically earlier in the year that we would have nothing to do with the longer frocks promised for autumn find ourselves helplessly drifting with the tide. , 'The first fatal slip in tlie direction of accepting' ' what seems like the in evitable is taken when we qualify our first decision and agree to wear longer frocks 'just for evening.' i Hav'ng made this concession, it is a simple matter to drift still further with the tide, until we finally find ourselves in a sea which extends out to and beyond the horizon, and in- 1 clodes in its depths all the items and etceteras of dress down to r.o smn}l a thing as a handkerchief. ^ It is in the formal evening gowns that we can plainly read prophecies) of tha mode to come. Outstanding, features of the new silhouette, noj matter whether it be in daytime orj evening- themes, are the lower hem lines and the higher waistlines. These; characteristics are to be found ...

CHOOSING THE RIGHT COLOR. FROCKS TO SUIT. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 21 March 1930

CHOOSING THE RIGHT COLOR. fitQCKS TO SUIT. If I were dark, says Ivliss Blonde, I'd be definite. Few adopt tbe definite style of dressing that most becomes them. A really dark girl has possibilities which we fair ones simply can't seize. If 1 were dark. I'd remember I could wear color. Thrilling color' —scarlet, jade, Chinese blue,, and orange — -any vivid colors — provided I didn't mix them. That's where many dark girls fail.'

Gorgeous colors together- — but a 'ingle splash of blue or orange as a frock would have thrown up her al most exotic type so much more effec tively. They Wear Better.

STUDY THE HEALTH OF YOUR FOWLS. TREATMENT DURING THE MOULT. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 21 March 1930

STUDY THE HEALTH OF YOUR; FOWLS. j ? - 1 TREATMENT DURING THE j MOULT. I Just as with human beings, who like a change of diet, and who, at times, go on to 'diet,' so* it is with animals and birds, and especially as with laying fowls. Some excellent advice is given in a recent issue of the Melbourne 'Leader' regarding this off-color season usually called the moult. The writer points out that once every year during the hottest | part of the summer, fowls shed their feathers and grow a new crop, which are at their best during the winter months. The vagaries of the wea ther are responsible for the time of moulting. When we have an aver age summer birds begin to shed their feathers about the end of December, but when the summer is compara-j tively cool the moulting is prolonged, whilst changeable conditions will in duce early moulting. | Changes Necessary. | To encourage moulting there is nothing like a change of environment and a change of food. After remov ing young birds from, say, th...

KEEP THE HOME FREE. ERADICATE ALL HOUSEHOLD PESTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 21 March 1930

KEEP THE HOME FREE, j ERADICATE ALL HOUSEHOLD PESTS. It is a tragic fact that many a * spotlessly clean home can be : rendered almost uninhabitable by dirty neighbors. Mice, rats, insects, will all come into a clean home from a dirty place next i door, and the only thing is for the housewife to struggle with them herself. - Her landlady can do nothing, and protests usually make matters worse, for their houses harbor pests with out taking steps to prevent the trou fcle can have no sense of considera tion or . duty towards a neighbor.

[ ? ? _ ©I.eJ JACK HOBB'S 'RETIREMENT.' ? 1 It is wonderful how you get to 1 iike the old stagers in big cricket. , Year after year the remark is general that 'So-and-So is 'done'; I he's got to make way for a younger ] man.' But, vear after year, you take ! your seat in the pavilion, and if So- ] and-So did not appear you would feel , quite a pang/ Take Jack Hobbs, iam-l1 ous English- batsman. From first-classj cricket he has had as many 'retire- v ments' as Melba from grand opera. Everybody clung to Melba as the' great songster; everybody clings to Hobbs as the great batsman; and the sporting- public is just as loyal, just as emotional, as the opera public (writes J. G. Bridges in Sydney 'Guardian'). Melba announced her 'definitely final public appearance' more times than one can remember. And -'-t every such 'final' appearance the crowd was there to do her hom age.

BOTH SIDES OF THE FENCE [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 21 March 1930

BOTH SIDES - OF THE FENCE I (By 'THE MAN ON TOP') Safety first! That's a gilt-edged; slogan to carry around these times.) At least one Adelaide polifcemanj thinks it is. T he other day a suspect: was picked up in. King - William) Street, and a constable was told off] to take the catch to the birdcages, but; in order : to give th'e^ pinched -s party ' the look of an ordinary man in the street, Policeman No. 49 was told to walk a wee bit behind the capture en route to the cooling chambers at. No. 1 An gas Street This plan work ed right enough until the. procession' of two got opposite a Wing William] Street pubbery, into the open por tals of which the suspect darted and was soon, lost to view. Asked why he did not chase the runaway, the constable said he was not having any going into a pub whilst wearing uniform. Some of his P.C. colleagues had recently been on the mat for being seen on licensed premises in uniform, and . he wasn't taking any risks. Next, please! j * * # * I Do we wal...

WHAT DOES SPENDING COST? How much does it cost you to spend £100? The answer is £100 down, and at least per annum for the rest of your life. Yet what man would knowingly spend £100 that put him under obligation to pay £4 per year for life? None, perhaps, but many do it unconsciously when they spend money that might otherwise have earned interest at 4% indefinitely. Every pound you spend has attached to it an invisible string of pennies which you spend with it.

AUSTRALIAN NOTES. The Commonwealth Bank has fos-j t,wlitered a policy of arranging with! ^..overseas Banks that Commonwealth! Notes might be cashed abroad in limited, quantities for the conveni i?^^nce of those who might find them Ij- selves in possession of Common wealth Notes which are not in ,^the ordinary way negotiable outside) ^Australia.
