An appeal on behalf of THE FAIRFIELD HOUSE OPEN-AIR RESIDENTIAL SCHOOL, BROADSTAIRS
(Save the Children Fund) by ' MR. WALKER'
Nearly three thousand elementaryschoolgirls from some of the poorest homes in southern England and Wales have benefited by residence at Fairfield House Open-Air School, Broadstain. Founded and maintained by the ' Save the Children Fund ', Fairfield exists to save from the risk of serious illness and lifelong debility children who are the victims of privation because of parental poverty.
1 Medical officers testify to the miracles which are wrought in bringing these little mothers of the future up to normal standard of health, and in endowing them with a physique which will make a difference to their children after them. The work is essentially of a voluntary character, and can only be carried on with the support of the general public.

A section of the BBC Scottish
Conducted by Kemlo Stephen
Production by John Gough
This dramatic feature programme has nothing to do with J. M. Barrie 's butler Crichton whose capabilities earned him the borrowed title of ' admirable '. This is the real prototype-a man whose exploits have never been excelled in the wildest fiction, and who was certainly the most accomplished Scot who ever lived.
Crichton went from St. Andrews to Paris as a beardless boy, and challenged all the most learned scholars of the day to confound him in any aspect of human knowledge. While the pundits prepared diligently by poring over ancient tomes, Crichton was leading a wild life in the taverns of Paris. Yet on the day of the contest he matched his learning against that of every scholar and defeated them all. His progress thereafter was a continuous triumph, and though he was killed when only twenty-two, he proved that there was no human art except painting and sculpture in which he did not surpass everyone else.
