Mrs. Elisabeth Russell , [address removed]
'Aid to European Refugees' cares for Displaced Persons in Austria, Germany, and Italy, where many refugees are still living in camps, huts, and shanty settlements. Grants are given for rehousing, for rehabilitation and vocational training, in order that the refugee may become a self-supporting citizen. Work-shops and local industries are maintained in camps, and there are two special funds for the after-care of T.B. patients.

' A Modern Comedy ' freely adapted by Muriel Levy
Production by Robin Midgley and Val Gielgud
Soames Forsyte is astonished by a visit from Mr. Butterfield, who gives him some vital information concerning the treachery of the manager of the Providential Premium Reassurance Society (known as the P.P.R.S.), of which Soames is managing director.
He is particularly worried about the affairs of his daughter Fleur, and tells her that she ought to have a child. Fleur's husband, Michael Mont, is aware that Wilfred Desert is in love with her; but Fleur's heart is still with the man she did not marry-Jon Forsyte, son of Jolyon and Soames's first wife Irene. Meanwhile, Fleur has an unwise meeting with Wilfred Desert. June Forsyte unwittingly reveals to Michael the old story of Fleur's love for Jon.
