  • Contains section, 'We Record This Month', which comprises brief biographical notes with accompanying portraits of notable individuals from various professions. This issue includes Howard Carr (q.v.).
    Note: Column previously appeared under the titles, 'Men of the Month' and 'This Month We Record'.
  • Contains a brief reference to the announcement of Marie Mackinnon's engagement to Tristan Buesst (qq.v.). The piece notes, 'Both young people have already made a name for themselves in the literary and artistic world. Miss Mackinnon has published some clever articles, and Mr Buesst is interested in economics, music and literature.' (content appears in the Melbourne 'Personal and Social' column)
  • Includes 'Ethel Mannin Writes to The Home', a fervent rebuttal by writer Ethel Mannin to Caleb Mortimer's piece, 'The Most Fetching Woman in London', which appeared in The Home, June 1933. Following an arranged interview with Mannin, Mortimer had written humorously of his anticipation, and subsequent disillusionment, upon meeting the English authoress. (content appears in the topical monthly column, 'Contributed Comments (and Complaints)')
  • Contains the monthly column 'The Bibful', by E. J. Francis, which includes an untitled piece of prose. Written in the style of a sketch, the humorous piece is set in Sydney at 'the beginning of the 1933 surfing season'. Upon hearing that the 'defiance of law and morality on our surfing beaches is open and flagrant', the Chief Inspector of Police has assigned Constable Smith with the task of investigating these reports. Smith has been instructed to 'visit the beaches from Cronulla to Palm Beach disguised as a surfer and accompanied by a young policewoman of undeniable attractiveness who will wear the latest surfing creations.' Constable Smith subsequently renders a report which recounts details of his assignment and the 'outrageous' conduct of Policewoman Smythe-Perkington whose bathing suit showed unfortunate signs of shrinkage.
  • Includes a brief report regarding Noel Coward's 'literary joke', the publication of a satirical 'anthology' of parodied verse; Spangled Unicorn (1932) contained poems written by 'fictitious minor poets with absurd names'. Cochran notes, 'Unwisely, it would seem, he illustrated these with photos of real but humble persons. Now, in New York, Mr Serge Theodore Gunin is claiming £6,000 damages from Noel Coward, as he claims his photo has been used to illustrate the poems of Albrecht Drausier - a hypothetical poet who committed suicide at the age of 18.' (content appears in topical column, 'This, That and Them' by London correspondent T. H. Cochran)
