How women may help in the problems of receiving areas
A talk by Grace Drysdaje
Grace Drysdale 's long association as Warden of the Edinburgh University Settlement has made her a familiar figure in Scottish public life. She is now Deputy Officer for Scotland of the National Council of Social Service, lending her great experience in the cause of the ' blitzed '. She will explain her theory that the Settlements which in peace-time were the centre of education and enlightenment in the new districts surrounding our big cities can in wartime become second-line rest centres for receiving those who are homeless after air raids.
In the Settlement mother and children can find rest and kindly help, and the wardens can deal with their problems and soften the blow suffered by the loss of their homes.

John Ireland has written only a few orchestral works. One. of the finest is ' Mai-Dun ', which appeared in 1921. The music, which is austere and impressive, suggests the nobility and dignity of a bygone age. ' Mai-Dun ' is known to readers of Thomas Hardy 's Wessex tales as the prehistoric camp now called Maiden Castle. It lies near Dorchester, in the heart of the Hardy country.
