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

DESTINY Mixes   A COCKTAIL AT a little place on the outskirts of Mar- seilles, where I had gone to fish, I saw a young woman sitting on the rocks, hair fly- ing in the wind, brown as a berry, a rough dress around her beau- tiful body, a red scarf tied carelessly about her neck, wearing no stockings and old, dirty espadrilles on her feet. Julia Stone. Beside her sat a young French fish- erman, barefooted, dark, in a blue, sleeveless Lacoste shirt and old white trousers, a beret basque on his head. But he was good-looking. A tangle of black, Provencal hair, blowing also in the wind, crowned a face that I should have liked to paint were I a painter. His skin was tanned to that mulatto color common in that part of the world among men who live their lives in the blistering pro- vencal sun and the whipping sav- agery of the mis- tral. A fine-looking fellow; strong, brown arms clasped about his knees, and looking out to sea with Julia.     I hailed Ju...

I STRONGLY RECOMMEND GAS Says a   Medical FIRES leading Expert Harley Street district (London), the practising centre for many of the world's foremost medical authorities, has more gas fires to the acre than any other residential area in Great Britain.Three out of every four doctors in England use gas fires.Ninety per cent, of hospitals and nursing homes, etc., in London use gas fires. Sydney Hospital uses gas fires. What finer testimony could there be to the health and hygiene of these up-to-date room warmers! Modern gas fires are more hygienic than other room heaters because they provide a perfect system of ventilation and they are more healthful and health giving than other room heaters because they give off sunlike radiant heat—heat which warms your body and not merely the air in the room. Special Offer 20/- for fixing If house pipes are suitable. Free fitting If gas is suitably laid on to fireplace. One deposit only for fire and fixing cost. Come and see these mode...

POiNTS OF ViEW A Woman About Women [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 1 July 1933

A Woman About Women MISS A. C., or North Sydney, writes apropos of Dr. Burton Bradley's critical article   upon femininists, in last week's Women's Weekly: "Dr. Burton Bradley harps on the old theme —surely exploded at this date—of the superior- ity of brawn (camouflaged into 'biological prin- ciples'). He seems deliberately to misunderstand or read in very extreme terms the nature of Mrs. Littlejohn's demands for her sex. Why drag in sewer work and ploughing? "Domestic work and nursing (what he would no doubt call woman's own sphere) entail very hard physical labor and plenty of dirty work. During the War, England's landgirls gave the lie to any ruling that agricultural work was beyond their powers." * * * Proof From Experience "FURTHER on, he states that it is obvious in many occupations that the animal make-up of woman will not enable her to give the same output as a man. I have been watching women and men work together in one of Sydney's larg- est offices for the la...

TEST YOUR COURAGE! Can You Solve These Problems? [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 1 July 1933

TEST YOUR COURAGE! Can You Solve These Problems? All men and women, at some time in their lives, come face to face with a problem in which a decision one way or another simply must be made. EVERYONE meets some such situation—tragic or comic, per- haps with only momentary signifi- cance, perhaps with an entire life and happiness hanging upon it. THIS article gives a few of the typical problems which might happen to anyone. Nearly every man or woman of normal, quiet experi- ence, can point to someone who has had to face a situation of this char- acter—face it, and had to solve it. But, how did they solve it? Most people have suffi- cient faith in themselves to believe that, placed in a crisis, they would find the right way out. Often there are several ways out—easy, or more dif- ficult. Imagine yourself, for instance, in a situation of the type which are outlined in this article. What would you do? How would your friends solve it? Would you be any wiser? Would you find a different sol...

Wise in Her Generation COMPLETE SHORT STORY [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 1 July 1933

Wise in Her Generation By JOHN BLAXLAND COMPLETE SHORT STORY SLANTING rays of after- noon sunlight cascaded through the bay win- dows of the living room. They turned the two canaries, sing- ing and hopping about in their ornate cage, to little gouts of pale fire. Mrs. Lydiatt sat on the more comfort- able end of the settee under the window, knitting and thinking. Whenever her thoughts reached a decisive point, she made a resolute thrust of her needle, accompanied by a firm setting of her mouth. And whenever her knitting reached the end of a row, her thoughts also attained a period. It wouldn't do to think of it as mere impudence; as two brats scarcely out of their teens setting their opinion up against hers. That wasn't the im- portant thing. And she mustn't think of them as one; that was wrong. The essence of the thing was that they must be dealt with separately. Walter was just a foolish, irrespon- sible boy, who had become infatuated with a pretty face—pretty in a way and a bold ...

Mid-Season Fashion in Paris [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 1 July 1933

Mid-Season Fashion in Paris From Nell Murray, Special Repre- sentative in Europe for the Aus- tralian Women's Weekly. LONDON. WITTH the mid-season collections in full swing, Paris appears to have gone crazy over black and white. A Melbourne woman who has just returned from a visit to the French capital states that at the tea hour in the fashionable Flower Court of the Ritz all the women who stood out as being the smartest wore black with touches of white. Nine out of every ten wore light hats, mostly white. Pale grey was also much in evidence, often combined with navy blue or black. Two particularly chic toilettes which she describes were worn by women promin- ent in Parisian society. One was Worth's black and white tartan coat, which has the new built-out shoulder with black velvet outlining the shoulder and upper arm silhouette, and fastens with a big, black, velvet bow at the throat. The coat hangs perfectly straight, with a box-like line, and all interest is centred in the sleev...

MARCHING back to PROSPERITY [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 1 July 1933

MARCHING back to PROSPERITY WITH an estimated Commonwealth sur- plus of nearly £4,000,000 Australia has definitely turned the corner to prosperity. Time for the menfolk to throw up their hats and say, "Well, that's over, thank the Lord, and for us girls, as Lorelei would remark, to buy a new confection for the head. Now that the worst has passed, we can afford to take stock of our position. WE have had in our midst real poverty, real distress, and real humiliation, saddest of all. Many of our people have endured starvation before they applied for the food relief.   The application for this relief, to sen- sitive persons, has meant sheer hell. Fortunately, it is not the case that out of that hell there is no redemption. A week or two ago, a woman whose husband had been out of work for three years, said to me, "My husband's got a job at the brickworks. On Friday, when he brings home his week's wages, I'll handle the first money I've seen in three years. And I'm going mad....

WOMEN in High OFFICE [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 1 July 1933

WOMEN in High   OFFICE MINISTER FOR LABOR —-Miss Frances Perkins. MISS FRANCES PERKINS, State Industrial Commissioner of New York, has been made Secretary of Labor (or, as we should say, Minister for Labor), the first woman to be in the Cabinet in the United States. Already Miss Perkins has shown her self very effi- cient. She ably defended Presi- dent Roosevelt's first work-relief bill before the Parliamentary   committee in   quiring into it; she put an end to foolish re s t r i ct ions against foreign born citizens in the United States, and got rid of a secret service system in that connec- tion; she rapped |"Mr. Minister"— on the knuckles |Mrs. Nellie Taylor statistical |Ross, bureaux which were using figures to prove what wasn't so in regard to unemployment. Mrs. Nellie Taylor Ross, late Governor of Wyoming, is the new Treasurer of the United States, and her signature will be on all the new paper money issued while she holds that office. M...

HOLLYWOOD Goes to LONDON! FILM BEAUTIES and EXPERTS are on the TREK to ELSTREE [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 1 July 1933

HOLLYWOOD Goes to LONDON! FILM BEAUTIES and EXPERTS are on the TREK to ELSTREE London is capturing the brains and also the beauty of Hollywood, says Miss D. G. French, a brilliant Young Aus-   tralian scenario writer, who has just returned to Sydney from England. Although she is only in her early twenties she has had three scenarios accepted and she knows the screen world intimately. Miss French has written this fascinating article especially for The Aus- tralian Women's Weekly.   Specially Written for The Australian Women's Weekly by D. G. French. EVERY Transatlantic luxury liner arriving at Southampton brings to London at least one screen celebrity. Many of these stars are merely taking well-earned vacations in Europe, but the greater number, including prom- inent directors and expert technicians (as well as many leading film players) are making trek from the famous film colony at Hollywood to a BEBE DANIELS (circle) and THELMA TODD (left) at Elstree Stud...

Latest Shows "TELL ME TO-NIGHT" [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 1 July 1933

Latest Shows By a Woman In the Audience "TELL ME TO-NIGHT" ORIGINALITY of directing, beauty of subject matter (both human and   scenic), a humorous and entertaining story, and artistically contrived oppor- tunities for beautiful singing, are all present in "Tell Me To-night." That they are being appreciated is shown by the fact that the production is having an extended season. The plot is unpre- tentious and unsophisticated, as are the characters. An opera singer (Jan Kie- pura) decides he is a young man as well as a great artist, and, escaping from the clutches of the world's most efficient publicity manager (ess) to those of the world's most amusing confidence man (Sonnie Hale) leads the simple life in a country village, including falling in love with the village belle (Magda Schneider). Nothing particular happens, but, as we said before, the photography is so fine, and the singing, too, that this is Sydney's most attractive current re- lease. —Mayfair. KATHARINE HEPB...

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

LITTLE THEATRES EASILY one of the best ama- teur productions of last week was the Public Services Musical and Dra- matic Society's "Two of a Kind." The production was excellent; rehearsals (except in one instance) had obviously been thorough; the settings, though "straight," were very pleasant; most of the actors could act, and the play itself contained consistently amusing dialogue, although it quite ignored the deeper is- sues of a case of bigamy. Gwen Sherwood, who was also the producer, wholly delightful as the fas- cinating if overwhelming bigamist, Archie Atkin, who portrayed the artistic yet helpless Victor, was straight out of Wodehouse, and Doris Bellamy both looked and acted prettily. Also good were Tim O'Sullivan and Richard Hardy- man. The whole entertainment was made particularly pleasant by the six members of the Price family, assisted by Bede Williams, whose entr'acte music was a happy surprise to those not yet hardened to the sight of musical instru- ments being prod...

FOR MOTHERS AND YOUNG WIVES CROWNED TEETH [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 1 July 1933

FOR MOTHERS AND YOUNG WIVES bY A DOCTOR CROWNED TEETH DENTISTRY has advanced, like all other sciences, in the past few years, and it is not unreasonable to   claim that a dental job done in war days, or even before the war, may need in- spection in this year 1933. There are many people cherishing old crowned teeth. These teeth may be quite all right; they also may be all wrong. It is not an uncommon experience to find that some long-standing crowns are covering teeth which have become in- fected. And there is no need to tell people these days that infected teeth can seriously interfere with general health and cause things like rheumatism and arthritis. There is a good way of finding out whether crowns are covering good or bad teeth. Have them X-rayed. An X-ray of suspicious teeth once a year is a very good insurance against possible chronic invalidism. MILK TIME was when emphasis on the value of milk merely caused a smile on the face of the listener. That day has gone b...

ESCALOPES OF VEAL AND MACARONI Cut fillet of veal into rounds 2½ inches in diameter and ¼ inch thick. Trim nicely, and season with salt and pepper. Melt a little butter or good dripping, dip the fillets into it, then into egg and breadcrumbs, the latter to have a little grated cheese mixed with it. Fry the cutlets a golden brown in clarified drip- ping. Boil some macaroni in plenty of salted water, drain well, put back into saucepan with a little white sauce or good brown gravy. Add 3 tablespoons ( heaped ) grated cheese, pinch   cayenne, a little butter, and season it well. Mix all well together, and make thoroughly hot. Make a circular border of nicely mashed potatoes on a hot dish, dress the cutlets on it, put the macaroni in the centre, and pour a nice brown gravy seasoned with a little tomato sauce round the base of the dish. 5/- to Mrs. O. Langtree, 46 Bourke Street, Waverley.

Intimate Jottings Did You Know That— [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 1 July 1933

Did You Know That—   THOSE modern artists, the Ramsay twins (Jean and Gwen), at their Wahroonga home, have a painted room —all the four walls covered with mod- ern art. Major Conder was not only a splendid footballer and champion boxer in his youth, to say nothing of a record sprinter, but is also one of the finest horsemen and horse trainers in Australia. Enid Gerber is a descendant of that famous woman, Caroline Chisholm, who did outstanding work among early women settlers. Caroline Chisholm and Amy Johnson are the only two women, except Royalty, who have been made the subject of a cartoon in "Punch." First Book at 60 Mrs. J. B. Monckton, who was one of the guests of honor at a recent lunch party of the Women Writers, is remem- bered by book lovers for her wonderful achievement in writing her first book, "The Shuttle of Life," after she had turned 60.

WASHING UP NEED NOT HURT THE HANDS [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 1 July 1933

WASHING UP NEED NOT HURT THE HANDS By a Business Woman   IN between looking for a job, I do a good deal of the washing up at home, and as I always use very hot water, I soon noticed that hands and nails were   getting into bad condition.   On thinking the matter over I de- cided if I could get some sort of a rack in which to stack the plates and saucers, and place the whole in a sink or dish. I could pour boiling soapy water over the lot and with the help of a mop the dishes would be done with- out my hands getting par-boiled; the plates would be held by the rim in the left hand, and the mop used vigorously with the right.   I walked thc town, but couldn't get the type of rack I wanted—the   draining rack was too long to stand in my dish, and I don't like using   the sink.   What I do is to get a pot of boiling   water and stand it   in my washing-up   di...

42/- "Fx & R" DIAMOND RINGS . . . Quality The quality of "Fx. & R." Diamond Rings is expressed in the fire, colour and brilliance of the stones, and the perfection of design and workmanship. It's quality that counts in diamond rings, since it is the factor that deter- mines value. Extremely low price or large dia- monds do not necessarily mean VALUE. Price "Fx. & R." Diamond Rings are offered at most reasonable prices. Diamonds are purchased direct from the markets of the world, and the rings are made in our own workrooms.
