A report of the Presbyterian Sunday School Anniversary will appear in our next issue. There is much consternation amongst the large number of men who indulge in surf bathing at Bondi (N.S W.), on account of a new regulation which is going to be enforced. The Waverley Municipal Council have come to the decision that the male portion of the surf bathers, like those of the opposite sex, must be well clothed. A neck to knee costume is to be no longer sufficient. A skirt reaching at least to the knees must be added, and the arms must be concealed to near the elbows. The mayor of Waverley thus describes the costume:- " A combination, consisting of guernsey with trouser legs. and reaching from near the elbow to the bond of the knee, together with a skirt not unsightly but simply at- tached to the garment and covering the figure below the hips to the knee." Loitering on the beach is also to be pro- hibited and all communication between bathers and the general public is to be forbidden. The penalties for a breach of the regulation will range from 20s to £20.
