Why Pick Me? Sir Richard Butler asked the other day why "The News" printed blocks of Mr. John Verran and other notables, while he was left to the tender mercies of' Ha! Gye, who mane him flog a kid over the heading "School's In." The trembling pressman told the Speaker (pressmen have to tremble at times) that his facial expression lent itself to the cartoonist wvho was ner vous and distraught, that since Billy had vacated the big Federal chair most of the cartoonists had suicided or re signed, that IBruce's spats and Watt's 'chin and Newland's well-waxed mou stache were about all that were left, with little Dr. Maloney and Mathews. of Port iMelbourne, chucked in.

CHARM OF BAY WINDOW Casements Require Care PREVENTING DAMPNESS [Newspaper Article] — News — 30 July 1923
CHARM OF BAY WINDOW Casements Require Care PREVENTING DAMPNESS From the outside the bay window I1 characterised by a pleasing interest, and gives relief to the flatness of a facade. In an interior it adds to the size and appearance of the room, Int parting to it a certain distinction and lightness not easy to obtain by other mnens. The casement window (writes B. ('. W'oods in "Building") seems to suit the bay far better than any other, and, in spite of it being nearly a structural im tpossibility to keep water and draughts out, it holds an frresistible attraction to architects. Casements, however, raequire careful treatment in such ex posed positions as window bays, especially those opening outwards, and whether the jamba and mullions are hinged at the top or at the sides, they should be grooved, the grooves being so' placed tlhat any wet that does get into them runs down and discharges on tO the weathered part of the sill.

SALE OF VODKA Authorised By Russia FORCED BY LACK OF FINANCE [Newspaper Article] — News — 30 July 1923
SALE OF VODKA Authorised By Russia FORCED BY LACK OF ' FINANCE Restoration of the reign of Vodka. with the Communist Government acting openly as caterers in manufacturing and retailing full-strength liquor to all, is predicted for this autumn. The Govern mnent, though pretending to tolerate the sale only of beed and wine and aline of 20 per cent. liquors and aperitifs, already is making and selling alcohol in defiance of its announced principle (says a special message to the Boston "Evangelist").

The Bolshevists are against the return of vodka as a concession to bourgeois palates, and the world-wide party rules requiring Communists to be almost total abstainers is for no other pur pose t...
CHOOSING TO BE UGLY [Newspaper Article] — News — 30 July 1923
CHOOSING TO BE UGLY '"'o be a really distinguished woman, it is best to be ugly." So say the 1French. But, then, in France no woman ns ugly unless she chooses. And to choose deliberately to be ugly is al ready a distinction (writes Elizubeth Mare in "The Daily ?Mail"). Prettincss and plainness in France are not reckoned by English standards. 'The Englishman looks at the face; the Freuchman at the line arid type. The Englishman judges a woman by her small talk or her hobbies. A French. man cares no more for those things than for the silver casket that holds the jewel. He loves intelligence; ana he pays homago to a woman's soul. JIence the Frenchwoman who would be distinguished often deliberately avoids the temptation to be beautiful. Beauty would place her in a false light. She chooses to be ugly. Plainness is I)re lerred as a foil to intelligence. But a woman is not only "distinguished" by artistic or scientific gifts. She may be distinguished as a leader of society or 1fashion. And...
