The only difficulty Mrs. Hinks will have in describing her life this evening will be that of compressing a long and interesting story into the short space of a quarter-hour. Since she began to earn a living she has been a caterer, a fruiterer's assistant, an outdoor saleswoman, a mother's help, an hotel receptionist, a member of a troupe of dancers, and a mannequin. Despite all this, she has found time to be a champion runner.
