LIGHT AFTER EXPERTS FAIL LONDON, December 26. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury — 27 December 1939

LIGHT AFTER EXPERTS FAIL {'Mercury' Service) LONDON, December 26. After the nation's most famous litterateurs had spent the day un successfully attempting to trace the quotations in the King's broadcast speech, Mrs. J. C. M. Allen, of Bristol (Eng.), revealed that she found the words on a nostcard among the effects of a cleric, the late Dr. Richard Glover. The origin, however, is still un known, providing one of the greatest mysteries of all tir e. Mrs. Allen said that Dr. Glover, in 1914, attended a meeting at which a young singer. Madam Catherine Ger rish, quoted the words, and Dr. Glover induced her to write them on a post card. Dr. Glover's daughter last Christ mas incorporated the words on Christ mas cards, one of which Mrs. Allen received. She later quoted the words in a letter to the 'Times' on September 7, and she expressed the opinion that the King must have seen them there. Madam Gerrish is alive, but unable to solve tlieji mystery.

'The Nazi pre-war assumption that the democracies were too degenerate to defend themselves, and also that the British Empire would fall to pieces, are proving disastrous illu sions.

VALUE OF ADVERTISING j Advice To Pharmacists And Others The November issue of the 'Australian Journal of PhariTH acy' gave the following good advice on the question of the value of the newspaper as an advertising means to build bet ter business: — Experience during recent campaigns has demonstrated the value of the lo cal newspaper as an influential me dium for the dissemination of infor mation on current pharmaceutical problems.
