Appeal on behalf of LuDun Limited, a Bedfordshire Workshop for the severely disabled, by Kay Hammond
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to Miss Kay Hammond , [address removed]
The LuDun Workshop was inaugurated by a handful of Bedfordshire people to fill an urgent need by finding permanent sheltered work for the severely disabled. Ex-Service and civilian sufferers with numerous disabilities are catered for: all are too disabled ever to return to normal employment. First they receive individual training under constant medical supervision and, when proficient within their capacity, they are given work in the workshop for which they earn a living wage. Their general health improves and their minds find peace.
Three years ago funds were collected and a specially designed workshop was built to take in forty disabled people. Unfortunately, the rise in builders' wages and materials exceeded the estimate by £ 2,000, and it is for this urgent need that this appeal is made.

6—' The Three Prophecies ' and Produced by Martyn C. Webster
Sergeant Cuff's visit with Gabriel Betteredge to the fishing village of Cobb's Hole, with the discovery that Rosanna Spearman has purchased a tin box and a length of chain in order to bury something on the shore, seems to involve the poor girl still deeper in the disappearance of the Moonstone. But the news that Rachel intends leaving for Frizinghall the next day, and the Sergeant's suspicion that the Moonstone is in her possession, is followed quickly by another startling development: the disappearance of Rosanna and the traces of her footprints across the shore into the ooze of the Shivering Sand.
