For "Coa Buckets" Writing from London,. Carlingford Scot, James Milnii, who' is' re-visiting tie land o? f his biith after forty years, gives some interesting impressions of the Atlee Socialist Government socialisation schemes. Of reconstruction work under Government control, he says: "Although rebuilding is proceed ing, there is still much evidence of bomb damage from the. last war. "Building workers, are quite indifferent about speeding up the work, as the Government has granted an assured, weekly wage, regardless of loss of time due to wet weather. - "Many I have spoken to agree that the workers have let the Government down by loafing on 'their jobs.

"Each fiat has its own bath, but many tenants formerly from slum areas, are using baths to hold coal supplies."

They are Miss Iris Hoffman, of Fairfield, and Miss Margaret Sutton, of Merrylands. This instant response to a hos pital's need is only one example of many illustrating the spirit of this group of women, who give their leisure time to training and practise to equip themselves for emergency requirements of their community. Parramatta V.A.D. was formed in February, 1940, and splendid work was done by the, group during the war years, about twenty members enlisting in the A.M.W.A.S. for full time work in military hospitals and, overseas. At the end of the war, the membership dropped. At the be ginning of 1947, when :Miss Gwenda Houison took over as Commandant of . Parramatta . de tachment, the...

She visited an old friend, who asked what difference she noticed in English life after her long absence? The reply was more than startli ling to the stay-at-home. The returned traveller said at once that the greatest difference in English life, in her opinion, was the strange hush that fell all over the country at 4 p.m. She complained that she could not get tea in hotels because either the staff were listening to the radio or the guests could not .be disturbed, and in private -houses she was given to under stand that from 4 to 4.15 p.m. nobody must make a sound. The lady was exaggerating in some measure, but it is indeed true that the BBC's five day a week broadcast, "Mrs. Dale's Diary," is one that countless list sners hear with enjoyment every afternoo. Mrs.. Dale is a doctor's wife and her dramatised. diary makes a' broadcast 'thdt s isitenrid to wvith continued interest ...
