An Australian short story by John Cantwell read by Peter Finch
When our father came early to the grey bedroom that chill Saturday morning in the winter of 1932, I knew then that the time I'd been half afraid of for a whole unhappy week had come at last. My sister Daph, who was six and a bit, lay asleep beside me in the three-quarter bed we always shared. I'd been promised a bed of my own when I was nine, and I was nine, but there was no money to buy a bed. The pit where our father worked had been closed for a year. It was Depression.'

The Word for Living
From the West Parish Church, Airdrie, conducted by the Minister, the Rev. James Maitland
Organist, George Thomson
When we really take God at his Word, what happens? This Church's congregational group has found itself challenged by a passage from the Bible. How true is it and how relevant to daily life in modern conditions?
Members of the group have studied the passage separately and together and have sought to live by it daily. This is the story of their failures and successes and the lessons they have learned from this experience.
The passage is the washing of the disciples' feet (St. John 13, w. 1-17).

The East Sussex County Housing Association for the Aged was formed in 1946 to provide Homes for elderly people with small means. Residents come from East Sussex and, through other charitable societies, from any part of the country. Four Homes are already in existence and another, to care mainly for the infirm, is being planned at a cost of £ 40,000. The Association also has twenty-four cottage flats and twenty-seven one-room flatlets.
