An appeal on behalf of the Officers' Families Fund, by The Lady Violet
The Officers' Families Fund owes its origin to the South African War. During the war of 1914-1918 two appeals resulted in £I,000,000 being paid to the wives, widows, and relatives of officers of the Royal Navy, the Army, and the Royal Air Force who were in need. At the outbreak of the present war some £40,000 remained, sufficient only to meet the responsibilities and commitments occasioned by the last war. Nothing was available for a new war.
In view of the large calls for assistance to be expected, it has now been decided to confine the present scope to the Army alone, leaving the Royal Navy and the Royal Air Force to be lpoked after by those funds dealing exclusively with their respective interests.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to The Lady Violet Astor Officers' Families Fund, [address removed]

Few musical-comedy actresses of recent years have more completely captivated their public than lovely Evelyn Laye. While her early successes were gained chiefly by merit of her beauty, she soon showed that she had brains, personality, and great stage talent as well.
In tonight's programme you will hear of her evolution as an artist-how she played Principal Boy, how she rose to the height of the musical-comedy stage, and how, recently, she has proved herself a first-rate cabaret artist.
