A GIRL'S INTERESTS. [Newspaper Article] — Country Life Stock and Station Journal — 7 March 1924

A CIRL'S INTERESTS. Dear 'Planets,' — It must be nearly 12 months sinoe I wrote to the good old League. I have not written for so long, because I have been waiting to see the address of my cpmrade in the 'Journal.' So far, it has not pppeared. I missed a couple of copies, and wouldn't it bo terrible if my comrade's address appeared in any of those? We are having wonderfully cool weather for this time of year. The men who are harvesting do not dis like the cool weather. All they hope for is that there will not be too much rain. Some of the letters on Our Page about Girls' Careers were very in teresting. 'Daddy's Girl' and 'Wandering Jew' wrote very good let ters on the subject. My small idea is that- a girl should be educated in all subjects necessary for her a^rwards. She should also have a goo 3 home training. Riding and golf are my favourite sports, to say nothing of dancing. I went to all the leading balls and en joyed each one of them. I am sure I've done more riding in the last...

FARM LIFE. Dear 'Planets,' — I have at last screwed up courage enough to write to the League. 1 live at home on my father's farm, and do all the work with the help of a younger brother, It is a farm that has been carved out of the wilderness and' we are only now knocking it into shjp-sjiape. We go in for growing crops .Of wheat, oats, etc. We have some cattle, and, oc casionally, do some milking for the butter factory, twenty miles away. I love country life and farm work. ' I never go to dances, instead I spend my time studying various things. Photography is my main hobby, and I am a member ot the Amateur Film Club, Sydney. 1 delight in art, music and animals. 1 also like read ing — books of romance and adventure I like best.
