Appeal on behalf of the Ranyard Mission by the Chairman, Redford Crosfield Harris
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to Redford Crosfield Harris, Esq., [address removed]
The Ranyard Mission celebrates this year the centenary of its foundation by Ellen Ranyard , a pioneer in religious social service. Her conception of combining physical care with Christian teaching led to the formation of the Ranyard Nurses, which now operates-under the aegis of the London County Council-a modern district nursing service covering one-fifth of the Administrative County of London. Voluntary contributions are urgently needed to enable the Mission to continue its two-fold ministry of healing and to provide it with adequate headquarters.

' A Modern Comedy ' freely adapted for broadcasting by Muriel Levy
Production by Robin Midgley and Val Gielgud
Soames Forsyte , the Man of Property, recalls the past and his unavailing struggle to hold his first wife, Irene. Now he is almost as possessive about his daughter Fleur, who is married to Michael Mont while her heart is still very much with her former love, Jon Forsyte , son of Irene and Jolyon.
Fleur is a modern product and a ' collector ' of people, including Wilfred Desert. Although Soames's time is taken up with business headaches he is never too busy to keep one eye on Fleur.
Sir Lawrence Mont:
by George F. Kennan, Professor of History at the Institute for Advanced Study, N.J. Princeton
There are certain conditions in the non-European world which, says Mr. Kennan, favour the expansion of Russian influence. The best way to counteract this influence is by clarifying the Western attitude to the under-developed countries and recovering the dignity of the Western position.
