SMOKING JACKET FOR WOMAN. LAVISH TASTES OF MUNITIONETTES. [Newspaper Article] — Port Pirie Recorder — 12 February 1918
SMOKING JACKET FOR WOMAN. LAVISH TASTES OF MUNITION ETTES. Some of the better-paid munition workers are demanding evening frocks for the first time in their lives (a dressmaker in a south-western suburb told a Daily Express representative re cently). My bookings are so heavy that I cannot accept further orders until after Christmas. I do not know when, or where, such gowns are worn, but there is a distinct dfcmand for them. Fur trimmed crepe de ehine and georgette are popular, and the other day I was asked to make a smocked velvet smok ing jacket for a. young forewoman. Another class of munition worker buys as expensively but more sensibly. Many women, for instance, are order ing tailormade suits that will probably outlast the war. "Two young women came to me recently," said a .tailor, "and told me it was their great ambition to have a real man-made suit. I replied that my lowest price was five guineas. The terms were cheerfully accepted. All the drapers' shops in the munition areas...

BAD LANGUAGE ON SOLOMON-TOWN BEACH. [Newspaper Article] — Port Pirie Recorder — 12 February 1918
BAD LANGUAGE ON SOLOMON TOWN BEACH j Frequent complaints have been made about the bad language which is used by youths and men who are in the habit;, of patronising- the bathing reserves on the Solomontown beach. So bad has the nuisance become and so shocked have been respectable folk that many, have had to cease taking, ?their families for the healthful dip which they have been used to enjoy. The police have been vigilant in en deavoring to bring offenders to book, but as the language is generally used when men are grouped together it has been difficult to malce sure of the indi vidual. The other evening, however, Constable Arthurson managed to get hold of three young men who were offending, and on Friday morning they were brought up at the Police Court, before Messrs A. A. Pearce and G. E. Creswell, justices, and charged with using indecent language on the Solo montown Beach.- Claude Ernest Clark, who pleadied guilty, had to pay a fine of £2, with 15/ costs, and George Ward Cooper...
