Appeal on behalf of The Gardeners' Royal Benevolent Institution by Sir Compton Mackenzie O.B.E. ,
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]
Since 1839 The Gardeners' Royal Benevolent Institution has been caring for the gardening fraternity by means of pensions and grants In 1952, to meet the housing problem, the Gardeners' Benevolent Country Home was opened at Horton, Buckinghamshire, to accommodate retired gardeners, their wives, and -the widows of gardeners who are homeless or in need of care.
The Pension fund assists 225 persons, and temporary assistance is given to those in immediate need of help from the Good Samaritan Fund. Much welfare work is also undertaken by visitors who keep in touch with the pensioners.
Despite assistance given by local authorities for those old-age pensioners in need, £ 10,000 must be raised in the next twelve months to place the Home on a sound financial basis ani to ensure that the Pension L:st is maintained at its present level

(Continued in next column)
Produced by Norman Wright
Despite her refusal to aid Phineas in his love affair, Lady Iaura has done all she can to influence Violet Effingham in his favour. She has even contrived for him a private interview with Violet — from which Phineas has emerged with his proposal of marriage again rejected, but very hopeful of succeeding when he tries again.
A defeat on a clause in the new Reform
Bill has caused Parliament to be dissolved again, but not before the Bill has become law. The B has abolished Phineas's constituency, Loughton, just at the moment when he has succeeded the negligent Laurence Fitzgibbon to the Under-Secretaryship for the Colonies. But in the ejection he has contested his old constituency, Loughshane, and has weo it by a narrow majority.
The extravagant joy with which Lady
Laura received the news has caused a particularly sharp quarrel between her and her husband, Mr. Kennedy.
