Appeal on behalf of King George's Fund for Sailors, by Kenneth Horne
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]
More than 25,000 sailors and their dependants-among them 6,000 widows-were helped last year. Seamen who left the sea through disablement were made proficient in jobs such as farming and furniture making, while aged seamen and their wives were looked after and given comfortable homes, and sailors' orphans given a good start in the world.
These and many other activities covering every aspect of welfare and benevolent work for the Royal Navy, Merchant Navy and Fishing Fleets, are carried out by 120 voluntary societies, supported by more than Â£200,000 a year given to them by King George's Fund for Sailors.

Jolyon Forsyte continues telling his children the family story. Irene is still the main topic of conversation at Timothy's house on the Bayswater Road; and now there is the scandal of Monty Dartie , who has run off with a Spanish girl, taking his wife Winifred's pearls.
Soames, estranged from his beautiful wife Irene, decides to pay a visit to a restaurant in Soho, where a charming French girl, Annette, and her mother are installed. He has made up his mind to divorce Irene and marry Annette.
Meanwhile Val Dartie, up from Oxford, visits the ballet and there spies his runaway father in a drunken state.
by Nikolaus Pevsner
The perpendicular style of English architecture is unknown elsewhere. Dr. Pevsner suggests that it illustrates several aspects of English character. It offers a solution to the builder's problems but it is a solution marked by rationality rather than poetic imagination and it does not set out to express a sense of mystery.
The building is designed upon a grid; part is added to part, squarely. Decoration is by repetitive pattern, sometimes sculptural, as in the great screen wall of Lincoln Cathedral, sometimes in diapers which could be extended indefinitely, and the building is not conceived as one construction kneaded together and completed.
\ Dr. Pevsner suggests that this lack of plastic development is also evident in English sculpture and he finds in it an English ' principle of insubordination.'

The Nomads of Persia
Sir Clarmont Skrine , whose experience of them dates from the first world war, discusses their manner of living with Oliver Garrod and Gerald Magee , who lived and worked with them during the last war
Chairman, Peter Scott
A considerable proportion of the people of Persia are nomadic tribesmen who have scarcely changed their way of life since the Middle Ages. Economic circumstances seem likely to force these people to abandon their migration and settle on the land.
