Married To Lord Mayor's Brother

(^HARMING and petite, Miss ^ Joanna Waterhouse Matters was a lovely bride at her wed riinn thir nffj-rvirtnn. tn Mr.

Roderick Corris Barrett, of Melbourne, at St. Peter's Church, Glenelg. The bride is the elder daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Clem W. Matters, of Boongala, Glenelg, and the bridegroom who is a brother of the Lord Mayor of Adelaide, is a son of Mr. and Mrs. A. O. Barrett, of Lalbert, Orrong road, Arma dale, Victoria. Canon Cavalier officiated at the ceremony, and the bride was given. away by her father. Departing from the usual style of heavy-hanging wedding dress, the bride chose a beautiful, filmy gown ?of stiffened white chiffon, selfpat terned in Paisley design. The billow ing skirt and slim-waisted effect admirably suited her figure, the waist being finished in front with a wide band laced with silver. The offthe shoulder neckline was outlined with real lilies of the valley over the shoul ders. The gown was long sleeved, and had a long train. A small halo of lilies of the valley and tuberoses was fastened to the tulle veil, which floated like a cloud. The bride carried a Victorian posy of lilies of the valley. Palest Cyclamen Pink Misses Fayette Matters (sister of the bride) and Atnalie Cuming, of Melbourne and formerly of Adelaide, were bridesmaids. Their frocks of pale cyclamen pink — so pale that they were almost off-white — stiffened chif fon were made on similar lines to the bridal gown, but they had short, puffed sleeves and short trains. The lacing of the wide belt effect of each frock was of black velvet to match long black gloves and very big black felt picture hats. Each hat was trimmed with material to match the frocks, coming from beneath the brim to form a bow in front of the crown. Victorian posies of deeper pink hydrangeas and Cecil Brunner roses were carried. Mr. Jim Lewis, who flew from New castle, New South Wales, yesterday, was best man, and Mr. Ross Stephens was groomsman. Flowers Brought From Melbourne After the ceremony, many guests were entertained at the reception at Boongala. They were received near the front porch, and then passed through a reception room to see, the wedding presents. From there they went through an attractive rockery and along lawns, decorated with palms and flowers, to a marquee on the ten nis court. The bridal table, covered with white satin, festooned with hydrangeas from Melbourne, and decorated with little flat Victorian posies in pastel shades, was reflected in a huge mirror, sur rounded with flowers, at the back. Other tables were attractive with pale pink satin coverings and pink tulle. All the decorations were in pastel shades. About 40 interstate visitors, mostly relatives of the bride and bridegroom, were among the guests. Black triple chiffon was the choice of the bride's mother, whose gown was gathered at the top and finished with a berry-toned sash. She wore a high black felt hat, and Lorrain Lee roses to match the roses pinned to her handbag. The bridegroom's mother, who chose black with gold trimming, arrived in Adelaide yester day with her husband and the bride groom. Her satin frock was pleated, and her bolero jacket was trimmed with gold. She wore a spray of frangipanni and a black toque trimmed with an ostrich feather. For travelling, the bride wore a lightweight woollen dress and long coat of early morning blue. The dress, which was pin-tucked vertically, was finished with a wide belt trimmed with mulberry-toned and fawn suede flowers. She wore mulberry gloves and shoes and an off-the-face felt hat of blue.

'Where Are the Girls Of the Old Brigade?' TT was rather a coincidence that I met Mrs. Walter Pavey (formerly Miss Doris Leech), of Merbein, Vic toria, on her way to England in the Orama on Thursday, when I had been talking to women \vho had been en thusiastic helpers at the Cheer Up Hut during the war. Mrs. Pavey was a keen worker for the soldiers, and was always ready to cheer them with her singing. I had been asking the women help ers if they ever had an Anzac re union, as the army nurses do each year. But the Cheer-Up Hut helpers have had only one reunion — during the centenary year. Each -woman com memorates Anzac Day in her own way, and more often than not remem bers all the amusing incidents rather than the tragedies. Mrs. Seager, who was promoter and organiser of the Cheer-Up Hut, is now living with her son at Kangaroo Island. Mrs. Arthur RymiU, one of the workers, said on Thursday that Mrs. Seager was the spirit of the whole work. Mrs. Rymill once said to her, ''You know you are a fanatic about this work for the soldiers.' Mrs. Seager's reply was characteristic: 'No one «ver gets anywhere unless one is a fanatic.' And with her enthu siasm she imbued all the helpers with similar ardor. Although the women have no or ganised reunion, they often meet each other in the street and chat over Old times. Some of them still living in South Australia are Mrs. S. H. Ay liffe, Mrs. J. Morison, Mrs. George Aldridge, Miss Amy Tomkinson, and Miss Judell. Among some of the best known helpers who have died were Mrs. WaUington, Mrs. Myell, Mrs. Sidney Weston, and Mrs. Temple. Mrs. Pavey, who is travelling to England with her husband, still takes an interest in all returned soldier affairs and with her husband she gave £1 for the appeal now being organ ised. She was present at tibe Cheer Up Hut centenary reunion, and sang Land of Hope and Glory, which she had often sung to the soldiers during the war years. Before her marriage she won the Melba scholarship for singing, which she still keeps up, and is always willing to give her services for charitable causes. Has New Flat ^£ADAME Delmar Hall, who lias been staying at the Oriental, has now moved into her new flat at Kingsmead, Brougham place, North Adelaide.

Royalty and Handbags TRADITIONALLY Royalty never carries a purse or a hand bag — the first lady-in-waiting attends to such things, says a cable from Lon don today. Queen Maty follows the tradition. No handbag ever encumbers her hand. Queen Elizabeth has departed from this rule. She always chooses bags of the same type, rectangular with a classical clasp. The material varies but they always are plain. The Princess Royal has a large roomy bag which she carries firmly under the left arm. The Duchess of Gloucester prefers a bag with a handle and swings it gaily as she walks. The Duchess of Kent uses a pocket shaped bag even for evenings. Notes From MiUicent \f'RS. J.

Race-Goers Staying At Oakbank QAKBANK Hotel, newly opened only Saturday, and situated with in a few minutes' walking distance from the racecourse, is booked out this week-end. More than 30 visitors are spending Easter there, and for Monday preparations for midday din ner for 100 to 150 men and women are 'being made. Most of the holiday makers are staying there for Oakbank races, which promise to be more popular than ever on Easter Monday. Keen women racegoers look for ward to this meeting above all others, and quite a number refuse to go far away at Easter time, lest they should miss Oakbank. This year they will find several changes, of which they will undoubt edly approve. To begin with, there is a new lounge for women, and they can obtain refreshments there. This is beneath the grandstand. The cloak room has been moved next to the re tiring rooms, and has been made more comfortable and more useful with added mirrors. Both men and women will miss the 50-year-old pines which had to be re moved at the back of the stands, but at the same time there will be more room for the crowds. Most women who attend this meet ing each year leave home in a picnic spirit— prepared to enjoy the day's racing whatever the weather. It is well to remember that comfortable clothes are much more suitable than ultra smart ones, and low-heeled shoes are the sensible footwear for the day.
