...WHAT MY PATIENTS ASK ME [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 1 July 1933

*** WHAT MY PATIENTS     ASK ME -- **BY A DOCTOR ** DEFECTIVE EYESIGHT Question: We read that many school children suffer from defective eyesight. How can this be avoided? While, of course, an eye that is defec- tive, from the start will inevitably need early correction, it is true that defective vision is very common in school children, and that this is often due to incorrect use of the eyes. Some startling fig- ures bear out this contention. In Europe and America special "sight saving" classes are in vogue in some schools. In these classes cent, efficient. All work is done with a knowledge of their particularly disabil- ity, and their eyes are constantly tested to see that all remains well. We could do with this sort of thing in Australia. Meanwhile, some simple rules are— (1) Keep the reading page 12 to 14 inches from the eye. (2) Let the child sit so that a good light comes over the left shoulder. (3) See that no reading is done in bright sunlight, or i...

BEAUTY DON'TS [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 1 July 1933

BEAUTY DON'TS   DON'T forget to brush your hair well night and morning. Proper brush- ing does away with the necessity for frequent washing. Massage the scalp daily if the hair is devoid of lustre. Don't use anything but the best of soap when washing the face—a pure, bland soap for the normal skin, and a super-fatted soap if the skin is dry. Rinse off thoroughly with tepid water before drying. Don't allow dirt to become ingrained in hands and nails in winter. If you have rough work to do (gardening and so on), wear gloves as a protection. Keep the surface cuticle soft by rubbing with a trace of cold cream before house- hold work is commenced. Don't forget to bathe the neck and arms with tepid oatmeal water at night when the skin is inclined to chafe. This is an old-time remedy, which never fails to yield results. Follow with the night tissue cream, if you wish. Don't read in the train or strain your eyes over fine needlework in an indiffer- ent light. You will spoil, no...

PARIS SNAPSHOTS [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 1 July 1933

PARIS SNAPSHOTS NEW evening ensembles designed for country resort wear include colored wool wraps worn over printed frocks or with a dress of sheer woollen material. * * * MAINBOCHER puts a vivid print slip under an evening dress of sheer black chiffon. * * * PRACTICALLY all hats, whether they are oval or round, still seek to obli- terate the right eye. Nearly all show more hair on the left side than on the right. This does not apply to the classic felt, with a brim which may be worn straight if you wish. The oval hats are often tipped directly forward, show- ing the back of the hair. * * * CROWNS of hats in some instances are still low and in others they rise to dizzy heights. Some designers make ad- justable crowns that can be crushed down. The high boxy-looking head is hard to carry. With your hat high at the back (or high at the front, but not both), it is more becoming. Reboux puts masses of flowers or ribbon loops at the top of her fitted caps. The toque ap- pears in another c...

"LOST" By a Girl of 16 [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 1 July 1933

"LOST" By a Girl of 16 -«-- A shaft of Light from Daylight's   flock     Had strayed and lost its way,   And wandered in the old stone church, Although 'twas loth to stay. It shimmered on the tranquil air Like dust from beaten gold, And mingling with the drifting mist Shaped fantasies untold.   It glimmered on the stately cross,   Paid homage from the sky; Threw lacy shadows on the pews Like Angel wings went by. It rested on the organ pipes, Effused the keys with light; And down the aisle was lost upon The dark plum-colored night.   —YVONNE WEBB.

"Dont's" For Darwin [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 1 July 1933

          "Don'ts" For Darwin   DON'T wear georgette or taffeta frocks in the     Northern Territory. If you do you may   suffer the fate of the woman who was a visitor     at an important social event, and who found,     on rising to greet an acquaintance, that she was     almost minus her georgette frock. She had     to spend the rest of the evening draped in a     large shawl. Silk materials perish in Darwin.     The incident was recounted by Mrs. Price   Conigrave when addressing a meeting at Manly.

How Outback Women Arrange Social Functions [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 1 July 1933

How Outback Women Arrange Social Functions THE old saying, "The little more, and   how much it is, the little less, and what worlds away." is a very appropriate comparison when one thinks of the vast difference in opportunity between planning functions in the city and the country. In the city there are facilities for call- ing committee meetings so that tickets will be sold, ringing up caterers to en- sure that guests will be properly pro- vided for, getting in touch with florists so that floral decorations will be ade- quately covered, and all the thousand and one things that need attention to make functions go with the swing that ensures success. But away in the far back women who plan entertainments are thrown abso- lutely upon their own resources. They have often to travel many miles to in- form friends of the forthcoming func- tion, do all the cooking necessary, ob- tain the flowers from their gardens and bush, and last, but by no means least, they have often to ti...

MISSIONERS Who DON'T Go AFIELD [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 1 July 1933

MISSIONERS Who DON'T Go AFIELD WORKING quietly, but very thor- oughly, the Ladies' Home Mission Union has a splendid record of work to show for the 22 years that the union has been in existence. During that time it has given approximately £13,500 to the Home Mission Society. There are 65 branches of the Ladies Home Mission Union in the suburban and country parishes of the diocese who have for their motto. "Workers To- gether." Their main work is to help the Home Mission Society with funds which are spent on the poorer parishes in the diocese, in salaries for chaplains in hos- pitals, retiring allowances for aged clergy, for work in the mission zone areas, and in helping to provide salaries for rectors and deaconesses in certain areas. In addition, the Ladies' Home Mission Union helps with clothing for the mis- sion zones, which is sent to the rectors and deaconesses and distributed by them, although the rector of any parish in the diocese may apply for clothing for individual cases....
