The Case for Conscription. AN EARNEST APPEAL. [Newspaper Article] — Donald Times — 10 March 1916

The Case for Conscription. A N EARNEST APPEAL. Everyone spoken to favors con-: scription sis the only possible means of redeeming our promise to the mother country and maintaining our position here as an independent Commonwealth. We as a nation are sending our fittest and our best to meet the enemy ; and retaining our'second class culls to carry o.i ttie business of life. We have good reason (writes the Horsham Star in a recent issue) for believing that the stationery and forms necessary for calling up members to serve as conscripts for the defence of Austral ia are already in the printers hands and will be posted to every member of the community who lias not volunteered within a week or two. Conscription is the fairest uietliod of recruiting the ranks and oppos ing a common front to our un- ■ scrupulous foe. Were people more alive to the interests of themselves, their wives, and their daughters, (they would fling paltry considerations of ease and profit -to the winds and join their...

A DAINTY RIBBON CAMISOLE. [Newspaper Article] — Donald Times — 10 March 1916

A DAINTY BIBBON CAMISOLE. It's an old idea to have camisoles of embroidery or luce, scantily trimmed with ribbon; but a camisole made of wide strips of ribbon, with a small piece of Jaco as trimming, is qtiito a novelty. And it doesn't take any tirno to make. Get some wide, soft; satin ribbon, cut it perfectly straight the desired length; hem it for tlie waist, and thread elastic I through this hem. Fasten it up the back;,put a. gauged. line of narrower ribbon- above the straight band, anM head it with some lace if this seems I necessary. The gauged ribbon makes quite a good heading.-by itsolf. The same width of gauged or plain ribbon forms the shoulder straps. A camisole of this description can be made from tiii'ije yards of wide, ribbon; and satin ribbon washes excellently.

FOR WOMEN THE NEWEST FASHIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Donald Times — 10 March 1916

FOR WOMEN (By "A'Mbiosin®.") THE NEWEST FASHIONS. When the redingoto is woru, it is ol'tou cleverly gored at the edge, so as to convoy a certain width at the-i'eet. There has been an idea of reviving tho Directoire coat with the Louis XVI. cufts. Tumover collars and buttons on these are a feature. The modes of the majority of clothes are conservative and rational; smartness and simplicity are a most desirable union, and there is much in the new modes to illustrate, this. Fashion, however, is so varied and so changing that there is no hard and-fast rule that cannot be extended, save and except that the hobble skirt is defunct, and that to wear a very narrow shirt relegates the wearer to be out of the fashion. Some of the sleeves seem to have imbibed the uarrowness of the skirts of last year. The vise folks should have taken advantage of the sales this year, for short lengths ■ of good mate rial would make a skirt that 'has seen its best days quite respectable with one of the straight...
