SHOULD MEN AND WOMEN BATHE TOGETHER.
TWO LORD MAYORS ON MIXED
With tbe summer at its height the metropolitan newspapers are, as usual, discussing very fiercely the question of mixed bathing. Views on both sides are expressed by score 3of correspondents, and " Everlady's Journal" has been-to tbe trouble of collecting the ideas of such notable people as the Lord Mayors of Sydney and Mcl baurne. Archbishop Mannix and Canon Hughes, the Commissioner of .Police and a lady doctor, the American, French and Gorman Consuls and Mr "Snowy" the famous surf champion.
The views of these varied folk, it may be added, are illustrated with a number of magnificent camera views that seem only to offer arguments on both sides of tho vexed question: "Should Mixed Bathing Be Encouraged?" Tbe majority of people asked replied in favour of mixed bathing— within reasonable limits, The Lord Mayor of Melbourne thinks that "the sea is quite big enough for both men and women to swim in," and his sympathies are entirely in favour of those who advocate mixed bathing, provided they do net overstep the boundaries of moderation.
The Lord Mayor of Sydney, however, whilst heartily endorsing the practice of surf bathing, condemns the too lax oversight of certain beaches Where indiscriminate bathing is in dulged in. This article is well worth reading.
There are a dozen almost equally interesting articles in the January issie of "Everylady's," which begins tbe New Year with a capital number, and the [rcaise of a very full twelve month, It is a sixpenny magazine which should appeal strongly to all CV women readers.
