A MAID IN MAYFAIR Gossip from London Town From Our Special Woman Correspondent LONDON, January 15. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 26 February 1931
A MAID IN MAYFAIR Gossip from London Town From Our Special Woman Correspondent LONDON, January 15. Giant perambulators are the late st craze in Mayfair. but there is a fly in file ointment. The fashionable chauffeurs refuse to include them in the daily car washing which is part of their work. These are days, of course, to early think of a successor to the title of "Princess Boyal," but when the appro priate moment comes it will be be stowed by the King upon his daughter. Princess Mary. Ever since her mar riage Princess Mary has preferred to be, regarded as a private personage rather than as a Princess. But X believe that when the new title comes to her she will have to give up the use of her hus band's name, and her official designa tion, "Countess of Harewood," will drop automatically, at any rate from Court lists and so on. Before she became Princess Boyal in succession to her aunt, the King's late sister was known |as Princess Louise, Duchess of Fife, and the fact that her title ...

Why a Motor Cycle? "Why buy a motor cycle," asks an Eng- lish correspondent, who proceeds to give a few reasons for doing so. "There Is much to be said in favor of the motor cycle, but to be said In favor of the motor cycle, but perhaps its chief attribute Is Its utility. Its usefulness appeals to everybody, and its low price brings It within the reach of almost every pocket. The motor cycle is the lowest taxed vehicle on the roads—lt Is less In first cost—elves more miles per gallon than any other petrol driven vehicle, and requires the minimum of care and attention. No thing can compare with it for mobility ana handlness. Public bodies such as police forces and council officials are using motor cycles In ever-Increasing quantities, due to their utility. For the conveyance of light com mercial products they are also to be found In large quantities on our roads to-day— again due to their utility and low cost of transport. A motor cycle provides exhilaration and a health-giving pasti...

Bell and Coch ran. England's opening pair, Ham mond and Wyatt hatted steadily and quietly in the face of steady bowling and keen fielding; they scored unavoid ably slowly and it seemed doubtful if they would be separated before lunch. Yet, though together five minutes before the interval, they were both back in tile pavilion at the ena of tiiat time. Hammond fell to a superb catcli by Mitchell, and Wyatt, failing io hook a ball from Bell, which struck his I hand, was caught by Cameron. COCHBAN'S DEBUT Cochran, making his debut in test cricket, bowled steadily without giving much away. He compelled the batsmen to watch him. Vincent, as usual, was steady. Wyat...

The victory was all the more worthy of merit as! Cons^antine was practically useless as a bowler during the concluding day and! only sent down a few overs, owing to an injured shoulder. For the greater part of the day Kippax and Me- Cabe had great batting practice. The attack was not very veno mous with Con stantine nursing his injured shoul der, while neither Griffith nor Fran cis was bowling at top speed. After the dismissal of Brad...
