Appeal on behalf of the Caldecott Community by Wilfred Pickles
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to Wilfred Pickles, Esq., [address removed]
The Caldecott Community is a residential school for children with abnormal home conditions: the parents may have separated, or severe friction may exist between them; one or both parents may be dead; or the home may be faced with chronic illness with financial stress aggravating the situation. From such backgrounds children become disturbed, difficult, and unhappy, and without skilled sympathetic understanding in a secure environment they cannot thrive. The Community provides such an environment, but at the same time children are kept in touch with their own people by regular holidays and visits, or with foster parents interested in their welfare.
County authorities are responsible for the fees of children sent through their Education or Children's Committees, but there are many children needing help for whose maintenance funds must be found from voluntary sources

Dramatised as a serial in eleven parts by Howard Agg
7— * The Proposal'
Produced by Martyn C. Webster
Accused of having driven Rosanna Spearman to her death in the Shivering
Sand, Sergeant Cuff no longer conceals from Lady Verinder his conviction that her own daughter is the culprit in the disappearance of the Moonstone. Angered by his words Lady Verinder leaves to join Rachel and prove the falseness of his accusation. She does not return, but by letter dismisses Sergeant Cuff from her house and from further investigations.
As he takes his farewell of Gabriel Betteredge, the Sergeant predicts that before very long the Moonstone will be heard of again and that events will move from Yorkshire to London. Gabriel is surprised to receive almost at once a letter from Lady Verinder ordering him to close the house and follow her and her daughter to London.
