Contributions (preferably by crossed postal order or cheque) will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]
In the last eighteen months Church House, Wellclose Square, Stepney, has given shelter to more than seventy prostitutes and girls in moral danger, twenty-five of whom have gone back to their homes. Funds are now needed for a house outside London to give a better chance of rehabilitation: the aim is to keep open a way of escape and to train the girls for a normal way of life. The work is under an inter-denominational Committee with the Bishop of Stepney as President.

The novel by Jules Verne
Adapted as a serial in thirteen parts by Lance Sieveking
PART7
Cast in order of speaking:
Produced by Norman Wright
Repeated on Tuesday at 3.0
It is now October 22, 1872. Mr. Phileas Fogg has gained twenty-four hours on the time-table he planned for going round the world in eighty days to win his £ 20,000 wager. This is the twentieth day. Everything depends on catching trains and steamers without a moment to spare. Once he bought a balloon; another time, an elephant. Mounted on the elephant, with his servant Passepartout and Sir Francis Cromarty , he comes upon some fanatical Brahmins about to burn alive a beautiful girl in a ceremonial Suttee. Though the delay may be serious, they attempt to rescue her, succeed brilliantly, and gallop off on the elephant.
