CENSORSHIP IN RUSSIA On Despatches To Press LONDON, December 29. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury — 30 December 1939

CENSORSHIP IN RUSSIA On Despatches To Press ('Mercury' Service) LONDON, December 29. The Soviet Government has reimposed the censorship on Press despatches which was abol ished In March. The Moscow correspondent of the Associated Press of America says that foreign journalists there believe that the reinstatement of the censor ship means the drying up of news from Russia. He says their work has been very closely watched since the censorship was restored, and corres pondents sending despatches dis pleasing to the Soviet Government have been quickly reprimanded. Since the signing of the pact be tween Russia and Germany, lie adds, the Moscow Press has repeatedly com plained about the treatment by Bri tain, France, and the United States of Soviet affairs, and has been quick to attack the papers concerned. The correspondent says that re liable news from Russia will now prob ably be scarcer than ever.

SOCIAL LIFE IN SYDNEY [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury — 30 December 1939

SOCIAL LIFE IN SYDNEY Christmas Day Parties — In the Old Fashioned Way — Wonderful Decorations on Christmas Tree: — Wongala Garden, A 'Blaze of Colour — Following the Old Wedding Tradition — Susan Gai Watt has a Punch and Judy Party — Melbourne Visitor Welcomed Royally— Popular Palm Beach— Perfect Weather Enjoyed by Holiday Makers. 'Daily Mercury' Service. CHRISTMAS DAY has come and . gone, and tho general opinion is that family enter taining played the largest part in the social events of 1939. The majority of people celebrated the festival in the old-fashioned way, with roast poultry, and the hot. plum pudding, as was the style in our grandparents' time. Tlie weather was just perfect, and once more our State Meteorologist (Mr. Mares) tells lie enjoyed his Christmas pudding more than lie over enjoyed it before. Because he was obliged to remain at the weather bu reau, his family brought the dinner to him, and all shared the turkey and plum pudding with the usual trim mings 'with him...

RED CROSS Providing Convalescent Home [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury — 30 December 1939

i RED CROSS Providing Convalescent Home Now that soldiers from other States are also training in New South Wales, side by side with men from our own districts, the need for help'' in the Red Cross is all the. more ur gent. There is a certain amount of un- ? avoidable illness in every camp and there is nearly always a period of convalescence when the soldier is no longer actively ill, but is not strong enough to go back to strenuous drill. If lie has his own home nearby he can get leave and he can be nursed back to health by his own people, but for those whose homes are far away the Red Cross is hoping to provide a convalescent home in one of the suburbs of Sydney. This home will be very busy as long as camps aro in existence. Every mother in the country give# to her own children the best of con ditions for convalescence — the Red Cross must be the mother for these soldier boys. Equipment and furni ture is being ordered now and Red Cross supplies are being packed in the depots to fur...

GOOD TEETH Inseparable From Beauty GUM MASSAGE [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury — 30 December 1939

GOOD TEETH Inseparable From Beauty GUM MASSAGE Good teeth are inseparable from beauty. Taking appearance first, it is vital that a (?harming smile should reveal gleaming, white, even teeth, but in order to be tlie. proud possessor of such teeth, it is really essential that the teeth are given their fair sharo of atten tion and beauty treatment. ' Curiously enough, few people ever include teeth in the lisL ot special beauty treatments. As usual, when considering the beauty of teeth we have to get right down to the root of the matter by mak ing quite certain that tliey are healthy. Much as we may dislike the thought, that appointment with our dentist must be made. Science has taken practically all the. pain out of dentistry, and there is little to fear from the somewhat fearsome-looking instruments of tor ture which confront us in the dental surgery. Let your dentist examine your tooth to sec if fillings are needed any where, and it is also a wise precau tion to have the teeth scaled ...

OUR HANDS How to Take Care Of Them [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury — 30 December 1939

OUR HANDS How to Take Care Of Them No matter how careful we are these days, our hands are bound to suffer. To-day men's work is women's work, and some of it is pretty hard, too. Of course, it is wise to wear gloves whenever possible. It is also sensible to look after your hands just as in peace time. We know many of us are going to be dead beat at the end of the day, but say to yourself that this war isn't go ing to last for ever, and that when it is over you will want your hands to be in fair shape. So give them the same treatment they have been used to. When the day's work is done give live or ten minutes of your time to your hands. One very important point is the cave of your nails. Many of you are certain to break a nail because of the work you may have to do. Now don't neglect it. A little crack or break may take a long time to heal, and will certainly be uncomfortable unless attended to as soon as possible. The war will be over some day. and those who were not too lazy to take...
