Investigations frequently reveal the fact tliat, although results may have been disappointing from the gra zier's viewpoint, numerous plants are to be found in the sward, but for various reasons development has been slow and no great headway has been made. Thero.ave certain districts in New Si'iith Waies where it is only neces sary to broadcast seed of subter ranean clover and superphosphate amongst the natural pastures, secure in the knowledge that at the end of three seasons at most there will oe a strong dominant growth of this clover. On the other hand, writes the Senior Agrostologist of the Depart ment of Agriculture, there are nu merous districts where the clover will flourish following an apparently precarious early existence.

Lecturing on 'Fashions and War,' Mr. James Laver, assist ant keeper of the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, pro phesied this week that corsets and curls would disappear in a year or two If the war went on. 'Women have always thrown their corsets away and cut their hair in war-time,' Mr. Laver said. 'They did so in the Napoleonic wars as well as in the late war. 'We shall probably see three fashion ghosts of the late war come back: Beige (the gliost of khaki), the cloche (ghost of the steel helmet), and the tubular costume (ghost of the field gun).'

Her suffering has been not only intense but also widely va- : She has died, lost her mind and now, a mother, is denied the love of her child. 'Such roleB are stimulating because they're a challenge,' Bette says. 'It's no trick to play the quiet little housewife to whom nothing ever happens, or a member of the idle rich basking in horribly boring ease on the deck of a yacht. Give me stories of women with colour and character and vitality, parts with something to get hold of, parts that will fight back at you unless you master them from the start, and I'll be content. Do they mean work? Certainly. Hard work. But that's what keeps me happy.' It, was in 'Dark Victory' that this year's Academy Award winder went to a lingering, tragic death.
