OUTING on thc beach last New Year's Eve wish ^ tag she had a "really chunky" necklace to wear that night to a party with a new brightly coloured cotton dress from Honolulu, Mrs. Peggy Fair had an idea which has since absorbed all her time and energies.

"Il was terrible! 1 made holes in the shells with a red-hot needle and threaded them on to a piece of raffia. Friends at the party admired it.

Plan For Talks On Leave [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 1 November 1953

Plan For Talks On Leave CANBERRA, Sat- urday, Mr. Bruce Kekwick, M.P., to-day advocated an Austra- lia-wide long service leave system for private enterprise. Mr. Kekwick (Lib., Tas.) is chairman of the Common- wealth Government Indus trial Relations Committee. He said employers should show their good faith by calling an Australia-wide conference to establish an appropriate leave system. Employers could do a lot more towards bringing about better industrial relations. ! One "very worthwhile step" would be for private i enterprise to _ grant long i service leave similar to that given under various Public Service awards. "AU Too Few" "Some major firms have already embarked upon a substantive system of long service leave for their em- ployees, but they are all too few," he said. "Long service is some- thing in itself which should carry some reward." Mr. Kekwick said it would encourage greater stability in employment if employees knew that they would be able to qualify for long-service l...

Rumours Annoy Palace [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 1 November 1953

Rumours Annoy Palace NEW YORK, Sat- urday (A.A.P.). - Buckingham Palace officials expressed extreme annoyance to-day at persistent rumours from Europe that Princess Margaret would soon retire to a convent, states the Palace correspondent of United Press. The correspondent points out that, like all the Royal Family, the Princess belongs to and regularly attends the Church of Eng- land. Palace - officials had con- cluded that the false rumours probably sprang from the fact that she had attended several church ser- vices during recent public engagements. Tenderness "Friends say that any one who doubts whether Princess Margaret would appreciate thc joys of marriage and in due course motherhood, should sec her carrying out some engagements where children are involved," the correspondent adds. "Opening-a block of Lon- don apartments recently, the Princess's face Was a study of gentle tenderness as she chatted gaily with a four year-old girl who presented her with a bouquet.

Red Cross Welfare Activities [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 1 November 1953

Red Cross Welfare Activities The Red Cross Welfare Department last year gave financial help to 3,600 families of ex-service- men in N.S.W. The supervisor of the Welfare Department, Miss D. Davis, said last week that this was one of the least known activities of the Red Cross, and cost £20,000 a year. "Since the war we have helped an average of 3,000 families and wives a year," Miss Davis said. Hardships "Each case is treated sep- arately and confidentially." Servicemen whose mental illnesses were not caused by war were admitted to public mental hospitals instead of Repatriation hospitals, said Miss Davis. They suffered financial hardship because social ser- vice benefits ceased when they entered public hos- pitals.
