    THE MIXING OF CHRISTMAS PUDDINGS FROM INGREDIENTS ANNUALLY GIVEN BY AUSTRALIA WAS TRADITIONALLY UNDERTAKEN BY TWO COMEDIANS, HATTIE JACQUES AND KEN DODD, WHO PERFORMED THEIR MORE HILARIOUS THAN LABORIOUS TASK AT CADBY HALL, HAMMERSMITH, LONDON, NOV 23. THEY WERE ASSISTED BY NITA PANNELL, AN ACTRESS FROM PERTH, AUSTRALIA.

    THIS YEAR'S ADDITIONAL INGREDIENTS - TWO GOLD BARS WORTH GBP12.10s. EACH. ONE WENT INTO THE LARGEST CHRISTMAS PUDDING IN THE WORLD. A 160-POUNDER TO BE PRESENTED TO THE LORD MAYOR OF LONDON BY THE AUSTRALIAN HIGH COMMISSIONER, SIR ERIC HARRISON, AT AUSTRALIA HOUSE, DEC 5. THE LORD MAYOR WILL GIVE THE PUDDING, ENOUGH TO FEED A THOUSAND PEOPLE, TO AN OLD-AGE PENSIONERS' CLUB IN EAST LONDON.

    ANOTHER GOLD BAR WILL BE FOUND IN ONE OF THE 101 PUDDINGS THE AUSTRALIAN DRIED FRUIT GROWERS ARE SENDING TO MAYORS THROUGHOUT BRITAIN. FINDERS OF THE BARS ARE TO RECEIVE A CHEQUE FOR THE GOLD VALUE. BULLION REGULATIONS PREVENT THEM FROM KEEPING THE SOLID METAL.
