Letters: We very greatly regret to inform you that the quantity of eggs now being contributed is falling far short of our necessities. The success of our appeal for a million eggs in one week has led people to think we no longer need contributions. We urgently beg every member of the public who can send us eggs to do so immediately, or a small cash sum would be equally welcome. We can only succeed by the realisation of what real benefit a fresh egg accomplishes in the restoration of a wounded man to complete health.

The memory of a former chairman of Rugby Divisional Executive Committee, Mr Henry Hinde, may be perpetuated by the naming of a new school after him. A recommendation by the executive, for the new school off Nelson Way, has been sent to the County Education Office for approval.

Mr Hinde was headmaster of Hillmorton Paddox County Primary School for 20 years before his retirement in 1958. Four years previously he was awarded the MBE.
