  • Description

    This little item concerns the S.P.C.A. in Nyasaland for which over GBP50 has been raised by the sale of flowers. It's a worthy effort, yes. But what is really too good to be true are the flowers themselves - they're all artificial.

    Mrs. Summers is talented with this particular skill. A piece of paper becomes a rose petal, and before you can say Aspidistra or Crimson Glory Mrs. Summers has produced complete roses. Realistic? Why you can almost small 'em.

    Mr. Brian Carter of Blantyre, started a Yacht Club. The Club part was easy but the Yacht part was non-existent, until Mr. Carter started building them himself, and teaching fellow members to build them. This particular one is his fifth and there are 19 in the Club's Fleet which they have raced throughout the Federation. Made of local timbers with imported plywood covering, the workmanship and finish are superb. So by facing up to his problems Mr. Carter has made everything plain sailing.

    A blast on a Kude Horn signals a gathering near Zomba of over 300 Boy Scouts, drawn together in the celebration of 50 years of the Boy Scout Movement. They were addressed by the Governor, Sir Robert Armitage wearing the campfire cloak and he later presented Scoutin's second highest award, the Silver Acorn, to Mr. A. Dow.

    Of various displays, the 15th Nyasaland Chilwa troop kept their entertainment on a very high level. They say many a prominent man got his first leg up through scouting.
