Indecorous Female Attire. WOMEN'S ASSOCIATION CONDEMNS. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 10 March 1914

Indecorous Female Attire. WOMEN'S ASSOCIATION CON DEMNS. Indecorous dress was condemued by. members of the Australian Wo men's Association at the annual con ference, in the Manchester Unity Hall, Melbourne, on Wednesday. A proposal that all members of the association refrain from wearing stsch. ftttire was agreed to. Miss Shiel, who brought the pro posal forward, said that indecorous attire had commenced with the transparent yoke, aud had now spread to the feet. She thought that it was shocking for modest wo men to face such exhibitions of ec centric modes as were to be seeu in ,the streets every day. As for some of the clothes adopted for evening wear, in many cases the women were veiled, and that was about all. She saw one woman in Collins-street yesterday with a skirt slit to the k^nee. She thought this exhibition degrading to a modest woman, who had to listen to the comments of men passing. A woman should be compelled to wear sufficient clothes to cover the body.

Variation In Milk Quality. PRINCIPAL CAUSES. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 10 March 1914

Variation In Milk Quality. PRINCIPAL CAUSES. The importance of recognising the variations in the quality of milk cannot be overrated. Of the factors which tend to produce such variations, the length of time since calving is one over which no con trol can be exercised. The loss of milking time owing to calving is, on sn average, from six to eight weeks. This leaves, roughly, the usual 300 days as the length of the milking period. The variation in the quality of milk generally divides itself into about three equal periods. During the second period the milk is about 17 per cent, richer in fat than during the first, and during the third it is about 46 per cent, richer than during the first. The term "variation in quality" has in practice almost become 'limited to the variation in fat pre sent in. the milk, though the al bumiu and casein and the ash and sugar should also be taken into con sideration. Since, the ash and sugar are found under widely vary ing conditions to vary very little,...

When to this is added railway fares for the players and other IncidentalSit will be gathered that the total cost amounts to a good round sum. Mr Hawley, however, brought under notice a scheme whereby the ex pense could be lessened consider ably if some teuts were secured aud also the services of a first-class chef to provide the menu.
