Illawarra Trophy Awarded [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 1 July 1933

Illawarra Trophy Awarded IN the Illawarra Association, The Aus- tralian Women's Weekly Challenge Cup will be awarded to the winning team of the A2 ladies' mid-week winter competition. This will be a very popu- lar decision among the members of the association, for, hitherto, this grade, re- presentative of some of the finest players in the metropolitan area, has not been awarded a trophy. Mrs. A. G. Matthews, secretary of the ladies' mid-week fixtures, and also a member of the grading committee of the association, has expressed personal and official appreciation of the donation of the cup. News of the play and pro- gress in the ladies' fixtures and those of the junior ranks will be published from time to time on this page. A striking example of what an enter- prising and enthusiastic secretary can achieve is afforded in this association. Mrs. A. G. Matthews is the "deus-ex- machina" at whose bidding between 1700 and 1800 womenfolk seize their racquets and sally forth every week, com...

A SURPRISE [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 1 July 1933

A SURPRISE "Oh! how I wish Daddy were rich," sighed little Betty, gazing with longing eyes at the splendid array of toys which littered the shop windows. "Well, it's no use wishing," said her brother Ted, "and besides, Mother promised us a plum pudding for to-morrow." "He is quite right, Bet!" exclaimed her sister Mary, "and I think we are very lucky children to be able to even see the shop windows." It was Christmas Eve, and the three Brown children stood looking at the shop windows. Their father was very poor, and they never received any presents. They walked on in the direction of their cottage, and on their way, an old man hur- ried by. As they traced his steps, Ted bent down and exclaimed, "Look |PRIZE Card to Roth what I have found!" |Hayes (18), 23a Vic- and he stood holding |toria Pde., Manly, up a black purse. "It must belong to the old man," said Mary, and they hurried on, and soon overtook him. "Please sir, did you drop this?" said Ted, holding up the purse. "Why!" exclai...

COLLECTING Beauty for the HOME [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 1 July 1933

COLLECTING Beauty   for the HOME By Our Home Decorator       IN THIS oak room, arranged by Mr. Rodney Dangar at the loan collec- tion, the hangings have been chosen to give the atmosphere. Little Prue's cross-stick picture and a silhouette hang in their correct position with their old world charm. WHEN someone knowing my love for beautiful things suggested three or four years ago that I should start "collecting," my reply was the same as that of a friend who said to me the other day: "I should love to collect, but I know nothing about it, and should hate to show my ignorance to the dealers; for another thing, I haven't the money, as you know really beautiful things cost a lot of money." Now, many a dealer in antiques knew very little about them when he started. What he knows now he has learnt from his customers. Start buying a piece at a time. You will soon find that you have a room full of treasures, and that these have cost you l...

WOMAN and HER WORK                     Bush Book Club Friend of Dwellers Outback A BOOK is a friend, a treasured pos- session to be read, enjoyed and passed on to others, that they, also, should share in the pleasure that literature provides. Thousands of people in the outback country, out of reach of libraries, are grateful to the Bush Book Club of N.S. Wales, for the parcels of books that are sent to them. The country dwellers pay 2/6 as an annual subscription, and 1/- freight on each parcel of books. The books, which are sent to the club as gifts from people interested in the work, are sorted by committees of vol- untary workers, covered with wrappers provided by the Sydney Book Club, and despatched in parcels weighing up to 8lbs. The country folk write to the club, saying what kind of reading matter they like, and the utmost care is taken in the selec...

Helps OUR Budding MUSICIANS [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 1 July 1933

Helps OUR Budding MUSICIANS THE Queen Victoria Club, which was started in pre-war days, endeavors to help those artists who gave so freely of their gifts during the times of stress, and to introduce to the public young musical artists who might not other- wise have an opportunity to appear be- fore the public. Some of the artists who were success- ful in the last Grand Opera season were heard for the first time at the Club's Musicales, which are always such popular entertain- ments. The many friends of Mrs. Arthur Scrivener, the popu- lar president of the club, are rejoicing in the fact that after a long ill- ness she has again |Mrs. A. Scrivener taken up her duties. While the club is neither a charitable institution nor a commercial enterprise, it has done philanthropic work by send- ing cheques to impoverished artists and to hospitals. Membership of the club is by intro- duction, and invitations for the next musicale, to be held at the Arts Club on July 17, may be obtained by ring...

    Two Y.W.C.A. Leaders Visit AUSTRALIA Tlie visit of the world presi- dent of the World's Young Wo- men's Christian Association, Miss van Asch van Wyck, and Miss Charlotte Niven, general secre- tary, is unique in that it is the first time in the history of the movement that a world president and world secretary have been in Australia together.

the mirror of SYDNEY [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 1 July 1933

OLMA OSBORNE, daughter of Mrs. Oliver Osborne, has now decided upon her bridesmaids for her marriage in August to Bill Gor- don. The Osborne clan will be well represented. First, there is Olma's sister, Daisie, who is still studying at "Doone"; her cousin, Pam Osborne, who is a blonde like so many of the Os- bornes; and still another cousin, Joan Osborne Wilkinson. Pauline McDonald, who will be a bride herself in the near future, when she will marry Dick Allen ; Nancy McCay, who is the guest of Lady Fairfax, and Ann Gordon, the popular daughter of Sir Alex- ander and Lady Gordon, will complete the group. * * * THE Victoria League's reception was a farewell party to Lady Street.

Sir Mungo MacCallum looked about for a place to park his tea cup. Oh, the hats! We will wear them with pleasure quite soon, ...

WEDDINGS Blatchely—O'Moor [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 1 July 1933

  Blatchley—O'Moor NOT for Miss Maureen O'Moor the highlights when she took the name of Blatchley on June 22, but a quiet little room in the building of the Registrar-General's Department. Ro- mantic circumstances surrounded the wedding, for the couple only met since the Hannen-Seyler theatrical company, of which Miss O'Moor is a member, arrived in Sydney. Her marriage, at half past eleven in the morning, a full dress rehearsal in the afternoon, and appearance in a first-night performance in the evening, is a day exciting enough for the most blase. Dr. Blatchley will accompany his wife on her return to England with the company. Flannery—Cunich TWO well-known families of the Burrowa-Young district were united, when Elsie, younger daughter of Mr. and Mrs. C. Cunich, of Young, was mar- ried to Richard A. Flannery, youngest son of the late D. Flannery and Mrs. Flannery, of Golden Valley, Burrowa. The ceremony took place at St. Mary's Church, Young, the Right Rev. Monsig- no...

The   wide and delicately       tinted bottoms of         pyjama legs swung     beneath his gown de       luxe of fluid gold as he         walked. His hair was                     sleek, although, with-     out an eye-glass, he looked somehow incomplete. But as he walked into the room, he repaired this defect and gazed thought- fully at George Moberley, who was standing ...
