Of Putney in Surrey
Of Northanger Abbey in Gloucestershire
The unwelcome attentions of John Thorpe are the cause of some uneasiness to Catherine Morland. She is amazed to learn that her brother James has become engaged to Isabella Thorpe. The Tilneys are leaving for home in a few days, and to Catherine's delight General Tilney invites her to return with them to Northanger Abbey. Envious of her friend's good fortune, Isabella admits her disappointment in James's prospects and offends Catherine by suggesting that Mr. Morland might have made him a more generous allowance. Catherine is further disconcerted by witnessing the intimate manner of Captain Tilney 'Henry's elder brother) to Isabella, who obviously enjoys his attentions.
Catherine and the Tilneys leave for
Gloucestershire. During the drive, Henry paints a hair-raising picture of tne horrors she may expect to encounter during her first night at an ancient abbey.

B. Phillips, director of the Company for twenty-five years. Mrs. Phillips who has done sterling work for the Company, will continue to act as Artistic Director.
The Carl Rosa Opera Company was founded in 1875 in order to produce opera in English; and besides presenting the most pcpular operas of the day (many of them for the first time in this country) it brought forward a number of works by British composers. This afternoon' ptogramme is made up of excerpts from the Company's repertoire during its forthcoming tour, which begins at Nottingham on September 7. Among the other towns to be visited are Peterborough, Sheffield, Blackpool, Belfast, Southport, Bradford, and Birmingham. Harold Rutland

Appeal on behalf of the Queen's Institute of District Nursing, by Gladys Young , O.B.E .
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]
The Queen's Institute is the only national body organising district nurse training, and each year more than six hundred State
Registered Nurses are trained as Queen's Nurses. Other aspects of the Institute's work include the arranging of refresher courses, research into district nursing problems, administration of benevolent funds for sick and retired district nurses, and the arrangement of practical experience in district nursing for nurses from overseas.
Under the National Health Service Act the financial responsibility for providing and maintaining district nurses, formerly undertaken by the voluntary district nuTsing associations, was laid on the local health authorities, with whom the Institute works in close co-operation. It is still, however, an independent voluntary organisation.

Characters in order of speaking:
Produced by Norman Wright
Phineas Finn, rhat handsome, pleasant, and brilliantly clever young Irishman, ha.s been elected unopposed to Parliament to represent the Irish borough of Loughshane—to the pride and joy of his adoring mother and sisters. But back in London, an insignificant back-bencher, he begins almost to regret his success. He has no other means but a small allowance from his father, Dr. Finn. And he has only just been called to the English Bar. He is strongly inclined to follow the advice of Mr. Low, his law tutor, to resign from Parliament and devote all his energies to establishing himself as a barrister.
Before making a final decision, he resolves to see his friend Lady Laura Standish, the daughter of the Earl of Brentford, who has always displayed rhe keenest interest in his political ambitions.
