Cities of the World A HIKE AROUND ROME ? ? | (Extracts from letters which J i 'Kay' wrote to her parents ? | while on a trip abroad before ? I the war broke out in 1939.) | ? ? : i ' ? ? ? —————— ROME. — I thought we walked miles yesterday, but its not a patch on what we did to-day. We went hiking, first to an old castle just over the Liber. It is supposed to be Hadrian's tomb, and of course is terribly ancient. ? It was .most interesting. It's a circular structure on a square base, and we wandered through more miles of passage-ways and round' battlements. They have relics of the old weapons, catapults and what-nots. There 'were cannon balls about six inches across -ind others about a foot in diameter, which, were catapulted over. We also saw some very crude statuary, and some lovely old tables and chairs and chests. There were thousands stream-' ing in and out. After lunch we set out to find the Colosseum and the Palatine Hill. We succeeded, but were almost too tired .o drag oursel...

. Color m tlie Keynote of Beaeh Fashions JVeves* waus Sucli a Variety of Shades ? APPARENTLY the bathing belles of 1941 have adopted as - their slogan 'Better and brighter beaches.' Color is the keynote of beach fashions ! And what color ! Never wa£ there such a variety of lovely shades used in the making of swim suits. Greens, which are gay and bright ; while dry, become a dark olive in the, water, likewise pale blues become almost navy blue. JfYLORAL swim suits compete with figured ones.

My Creed If any little word of ours Can, make one life the.' brighter; If any little song of ours . ?' Can make one heart the lighter; God help us speak that little word, And take our bit of sinking, And drop it in some lonely vale, To set the echoes ringing. If any little love of ours Can make one life the sweeter; If any little care of ours Can make one step the fleeter; If any little help, may ease The burden Qf pother; God give us love and care and strength - To help along each other. If any watchful thought of ours Can make some work the stronger; If any cheery smile of ours Can make its brightness longer; . Then let us speak that thought to-day With tender eyes a-glowin,g, ' ? So God may grant some weary one J Shall reap ' from our glad sowing. . T-f ' Christian Herald,'

THE KING'S RAID SHELTER—Exclusive Details [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner Wodonga Express and Riverina Stock Journal — 10 January 1941
THE KIM«'S RAID | 'J'HE first thing that strikes | you is that the shelter is not excessively elaborate, and in fact it is a housemaid's room converted into an air-raid shelter. The linoleum on the floor is covered with rugs which neither fit nor match in color, and the big old-fashioned house maid's sink still remains with nothing to screen it. A well scrubbed deal tabic pushed against one wall was formerly piled high with sheets and towels. Now it has a small mir ror standing on it, with ivory brushes and a comb — in fact, it has been promoted to be the Queen's dressing-table. : k '?pHE walls of the room are papered with rather a faded flowery design, and the biggest bits of furniture are two. large sofas and two arni-cliairs, which have been brought 'down from one of the State apartments. They are covered in rich red- brocaded satiu,- and the - sofas are so long and so ??wide '-that' 'tliey make coinfcjrtable .beds.- Folded rugs lie across them with large pillows, and beside one ...
