THEIR MAJESTIES
THE KING AND QUEEN at the site of the Empire Exhibition,
Scotland
(From Glasgow)
The steel framework of next year's Empire Exhibition will rise within a few yards of the Royal car when their Majesties visit Bellahouston Park, Glasgow, today. They will be received by Lord Elgin on the brow of Bellahouston Hill, overlooking the mass of girders and excavations which, by May of next year, will be transformed into the greatest exhibition of its kind that the world has seen since Wembley.
A short distance from the site of the Exhibition's 300-foot observation tower, His Majesty will unveil a rough-hewn block of Aberdeen granite marking the site of the Empire Exhibition. Lord Elgin will present to His Majesty Cecil M. Weir , the convener of the Exhibition, Thomas S. Tait , the architect, and also several of the workmen from the park. An article on Scotland's Royal Salute, by Melville Dinwiddie , will be found on page 6.

P. W. D. Izzard
The first of the summer gardening talks will be given by the Gardening Editor of the Daily Mail, who will speak of some of the beautiful gardens he has seen-for instance, those at Sandringham, which he visited while staying in Norwich recently for the Royal Norfolk Show.
He will also have a word to say about our failures as amateur gardeners, for this is the time of the year when we realise them.
A good garden is created out of mistakes, but only if the creator possesses the first attribute of a good gardener, which is patience.
