Tom Kemp, a genial bachelor who has come from Colorado to visit his sister and her husband Richard Baxter, gives a clue to the theme of the play when he says: ' Some people are like a mollusc of the sea, which clings to a rock and lets the sea tide flow over its head. Molluscry is not the same as" laziness,not altogether. The lazy flow with the tide. The mollusc uses force to resist pressure. It's amazing the amount of force a mollusc will use, to do nothing.'

Appeal on behalf of the Friends Service Council by the General Secretary, Paul D. Sturge
Contributions. will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addiessed to [address removed]
During the next few months a small team of Quaker doctors, nurses, and social workers will be leaving for Kunsan in South Korea, where they are to staff a hospital and to embark on relief work among a few of Korea's three million refugees. British and American Quakers will co-operate in this work which is to be done partly under the Uni-ted Nations Korean Relief and Reconstruction Agency and partly independently. The Friends Service Council (the committee appointed by the Religious Society of Friends in Great Britain and Ireland for .work overseas) urgently needs £ 10,000 for this purpose.
At the same time the Council is continuing its relief work in Europe, begun in 1945, and rendered even more urgent in recent months as a result of the renewed influx of refugees into Western Germany. During 1953 some £ 45,000 will be needed for the work in Europe.

At the age of eighteen Jane Eyre left Lowood, where she had spent six year's as pupil and two as teacher. In answer to an advertisement for a children's governess she set out on a journey to Mrs. Fairfax of Thornfield Hall. There she learned that Mrs. Fairfax was not the owner of Thornfield but the housekeeper, who had been commissioned to find a governess for Adele, a French child, ward to Mr. Rochester, The owner of Thornfield.
Life passed smoothly for three months:
Adele made progress, and Mrs. Fairfax and her s-taff proved kind companions. The household also included a somewhat mysterious woman called Grace Poole, whom Jane had heard muttering anj laughing to herself, but always behind closed door;. One winter evening, her return from a walk delayed by an accident, Jane hurried home and found that the stranger to whom she had given aid when he fell from his horse was none other than Mr Rochester. He had arrived at Thornfield for one of his rare visits.

Talk by John Perret
Should scientific development be banned until ethics have caught up with technology? Is starvation more tolerable if it results from blockade rather than from the destruction of crops by chemical spray? What master should science serve—The cause of knowledge or the welfare of society? These are some of the problems John Perret considers from his experience in a Japanese prisoner-of-war camp, where he improvised crude medical treatment for his fellow-prisoners, and from his subsequent work as a micro-biologist on the staff of the National Institute for Medical Research.
This is the second of a group of talks by representatives of ' the Queen's generation.'
