PROBLEMS of LIFE [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 1 July 1933
PROBLEMS of LIFE "The Matron" Dancing as a Profession I AM terribly wor- ried about my daugh- ter, who wants to take up dancing as a pro- fessîon. Both myself and my husband were brought up to consider dancing in any form as highly improper, and that nothing but un- happiness followed in its trail. I want my girl to be happy. Do you think I would be doing right if I allowed her to take up this work?—"Puritan Mother." The fact that your girl wants to dance only means that she is happy, for dan- cing is the expression of the joy and rhythm within you. Let her take les- sons. You will find that she will have to work hard, and what with her prac- tice and her reading (for in these days anyone who wants to be successful in their profession must study), there will be very little time left for her to indulge in the sort of fife you fear. You will find as much happiness in her success as she will herself. Heed Not the Rumors I LIVE in the country, and the man to whom I am engaged has gone t...
Things That Happen NONE THE WISER [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 1 July 1933
NONE THE WISER SEEN during the week. A heavy-look- ing woman standing on a weighing &nbsp; machine about to insert her penny. Sud- denly she remembered that she had on her heavy topcoat, so she stepped off the machine, removed the coat, put it over her arm and stepped on to the platform again.—10/ to Mrs. E. M. Walker, 75 Lyons Road, Drummoyne. * * * CURE FOR INDIGESTION THIS is a "true incident." Twelve duck eggs had been placed under a broody hen. The hen had been doing her work well, when, one day, hearing a terrible noise in the yard, the writer went out and found a large goanna at the nest, eating the eggs. It gobbled them all up and climbed a tree. A male member of the family was brought out to shoot the thief. This he did, and the eggs were recovered, unharmed, and placed back under the hen. Later they hatched out successfully.—5/ to Warren Devir, Macksville, North Coast. * * * FOUR OF A KIND SOME time ago two girl friends of mine, twins, married twin brothers. About ...
THE BODY BEAUTIFUL The RIGHT EXERCISES for HEALTH and BEAUTY [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 1 July 1933
? BB1 IA I f WU ¿ I I II l l MKJL- iPw w_ll Ai I Bi-JL-J-, The RIGHT EXERCISES for HEALTH and BEAUTY With beauty culture at its present high stan- dard, the woman of to- day is inclined to give precedence to facial cos- metics—those items that appeal most to her sex. There is charm in colors &nbsp; and tints, but too many &nbsp; women impart a radi- &nbsp; ance to cheeks and lips, &nbsp; then powder, and admire &nbsp; the mirrored reflection, &nbsp; with no real thought of &nbsp; profile or figure. Remember that phy- &nbsp; sical perfection and &nbsp; facial beauty go hand in &nbsp; hand; there must be har- mony in either case, whether natural or ac- quired. WITHOUT physical culture or exercise of some kind, no wo- man can expect to retain a pleasing symmetry of form. That "body beautiful" then becomes an unattainable ideal. With the average woman it is not so much a matter of avoirdupois as propor- tion...

THE FASHION PARADE How to Make ONE DRESS LOOK Like Many The Use of Accessories [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 1 July 1933
THE FASHION PARADE =By Jessie Tait How to Make ONE DRESS LOOK Like Many The Use of Accessories IT is natural for all of us to want to be well dressed, and most obvious to say so, but to be well dressed is usually synonymous &nbsp; with liberal spending. There is, however, another way of achieving this most desirable result. The keynote of this plan is "accessories." To-day it is possible, and fashionable as well, to have one or two good daytime and evening dresses, and by judicious and clever use of accessories to entirely alter their appearance. One frock can be cunningly made to appear as four—as itself, and on three other occasions as itself in impenetrable disguise. AS a foundation buy a dress of good black material. Have it made very plainly, with a high neck, long sleeves, and a straight skirt. With it wear a bolero-jacket of the same material, with cartridge-pleated sleeves. A black hat trimmed with white, two white organdie flowers at the neckline, and white gloves g...

AMERICAN CHOCOLATE &nbsp; CREAM PIE First make a tart shell of good short &nbsp; paste. Fill with the &nbsp; following: Scald 1 cup milk with 2 table- &nbsp; spoons chocolate, ½ cup sugar and a little dab of butter.

For meringue beat 2 egg whites with a pinch of salt until very stiff, then add 6 tablespoons sugar and a few drops of vanilla. Beat and spread on pie. Be sure to make it touch the crust or it will shrink away from edges. 5/- to Mrs. M. Abbott, 152 Bay Street, Rock- dale.

This stimulating programme at the &nbsp; "Con." brought about some very effec- tive dancing by the Burklakov-Light- foot pupils. Mr. Maling's ballet was the most intriguing item. Originally it was arranged for production in Stuttgart, but the political turmoil brought about a prejudice against "foreign" works, and it remained for Sydney to experi...

No title [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 1 July 1933
Lady Maitland gave a morning tea party in honor of Mrs. Raymond Laurie (formerly Coralie Morgan Jones) before her departure overland to catch the Otranto. Mrs. Morgan Jones and Miss Charlie Morgan Jones were also present. The table was arranged in the lounge at The Australia, and every woman guest had a posy beside her tea cup. There was quite a large party. Among the guests were Lady Fuller and her daughter, Mrs. Gwen Wharton; Lady Carruthers and her two daughters, one of whom, Alice, is engaged to Lady Maitland's son; Miss Annie Cook, who lives with her sister, Lady Maitland; Mrs. H. Bullmore; Mrs. Otway Falkiner and her daughter; Mrs. Jim McMaster; Mrs. Victor White, and Miss Muriel Lee.
Revival of Old English Dances [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 1 July 1933
Revival of Old English Dances EVEN with all the attractions of mod- ern life, the minds of men, women, and children turn back into the past for gems of art in music, song, and dance. The old English dances never lose their lure in this connection, but are revived from time to time by those who see beauty, rhythm, significance, and educa- tional possibilities in them. One of the most successful revivals of recent days was the Girl Guide badge display dance pageant, held at Mark Foy's and repeated at the Y.W.C.A. rooms, with Miss Ann Davies, of the Old English Folk Dance Club, as instructress for the folk-dance numbers. The beautiful music which is inci- dental to the Morris and Country dances has a special appeal of its own. But when the dance and song are coupled the result is an achievement that appeals alike to eyes and ears, stirs the imagin- ation and emotions, and kindles admira- tion for the days of "Merrie England," when such songs and dances were part of the people's lives. ...
The SOCIALLY AMBITIOUS MUST Have CHARM and POISE Crashing The Gates The Right Way [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 1 July 1933
The SOCIALLY AMBITIOUS MUST Have CHARM &nbsp; and POISE &nbsp; Crashing The Gates The Right Way PARIS. High Society in every coun- try guards its honors jealously —and Paris most of all. IN Paris advancement in the social world requires a great expenditure of effort—and even then with charm. No hope for your hoi-polloi. It is even more difficult to enter the genuine aristocratic circles of the French. Yet Paris has its social climbers, who are determined and clever. The Marquise de la Chartreuse tells stories of their technique. These people send out invitations to endless entertainments, she says, and are not upset by refusals. They keep on en- tertaining lavishly, and know that in the end they will succeed by mere insistence. It works out this way: Even if social leaders ignore the invitations nine times, society likes to dine out every night, and so, quite possibly on the tenth invi- tion from the same person, a distin- guished member of the elite will accept —and...
WOMEN will PROFIT at the WINTER SALES [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 1 July 1933
WOMEN will PROFIT at the WINTER SALES Winter sales are in full swing, and the prudent housewife is taking full advantage of them. The prices of cotton, silk and wool have already shown a tendency to rise, and, it is anticipated, will continue to do so for some months to come, it is obviously the right time to buy while, even on present prices, sales reductions can be secured. Real Bargains IN all women a keener sense of values &nbsp; and a deeper sense of appreciation of the necessities of life, have been aroused. Once they were prone to regard the periodical sales at the big stores as a joyous expedition in which there was a sporting chance of securing a bargain. They were rather &nbsp; uninformed in the matter of values. With the general idea of saving money, they bought all manner of things (that they did not really want), because they were at- tractively displayed and conspicuously labelled "genuinely reduced." But that word is no longer the open sesame to the ho...
Lot's Talk Of INTERESTING PEOPLE... [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 1 July 1933
Lot's Talk Of INTERESTING PEOPLE . . . MRS. MARY MARTIN MRS. MARY MARTIN, 60, of Philadel- phia, has discovered that equality for women has some weaknesses. In America social legislation on be- half of women has gone much further than in most other parts of the world. Thus, in Philadelphia, as a result of a recent decree, a wife who has means is liable for the support of her husband if he is without means. Mrs. Martin failed to pay her husband support money, and was taken to the House of Correction. The judge refused to fix anything less than a 30 days' sentence—but the judge was a man. MRS. H. BONNEY MRS. H. BONNEY, the first woman to fly from Australia to England, left &nbsp; Brisbane on April 10, and five days later hopped off from Darwin, finally landing at Croydon, amid great excitement, on June 21. Mrs. Bonney is the wife of Mr. H. L. Bonney, of Brisbane. Flying is appar- ently in her blood, as she is a cousin of the late Bert Hinkler. To look at her slim little figure...
A LIFE Amongst BOOKS Women in Business—No. 2 [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 1 July 1933
A LIFE Amongst Books Women in Business—No. 2 If you are seeking knowledge of some subject, no matter what it is or who you are or why you want the informa- tion. Miss N. B. Kibble, principal re- search officer of Sydney Public Library, is at your service. HER main job, since the department came into being in 1919, has been to make fortunes for other people, and although she never expects to make a fortune this way herself, she loves the work. Business men and women come to her with all sorts of inquiries, mostly about manufacturing processes. Many of them have gone away and have started profit- able businesses through their research at the library under Miss Kibble's guid- ance. Everybody is treated alike at this fountain of knowledge. For instance, an out-of-work man learnt from the re- search department how to re-blacken the names on brass plates. Now he is earning a fair living. Another studied boot polish art and set up as a manu- facturer. On the same page of Miss Kibble's note...
