QUESTION: Anti-Nazi 'Swing Youth'

question / pregunta: 


I am looking for a certain article about youth subculture in nazi Germany. I have stumbled across this site while looking for it as somebody had already requested it here.

This is it:
Beck, Earl. "The Anti-Nazi 'Swing Youth,' 1942-45." Journal of Popular Culture 19, no. 3 (1985): 45-53

My university library does offer on-line access to this publication, but I can't seem to be able to get my proquest password to work. I would greatly appreciate it if you could send me the article.

Best regards

QUESTION: 1974 battered women's shelters in Australia?

question / pregunta: 

In reviewing the life of Anne Summers, one of the members of Women's Liberation in Sydney, Australia, journalist Anna Reynolds states that Elsie (which Summers helped establish from a formerly-abandoned house in 1974) was the first battered women's shelter in Australia.

In 1974, members of the Women's Liberation Movement in Melbourne established the Halfway House, a shelter for battered women and their children.

How can I verify whether Elsie was indeed Australia's first battered women's shelter or whether Halfway House (or another shelter) was already in existence by the time Summers and her fellow Women Libbers opened Elsie?
