This helpful number contains 50 fashion designs for girls and boys of all ages and no. fewer than four free patterns—of a dressing gown, a toddler's dress, a school frock, and the all-import-ant party frock for a girl of 12 years. LONDON PERSONALS (from oub own correspondent.) LONDON, December 9. Miss Eleanor McHardy (Hawke's B3y) is making her headquarters with her sister, Mrs Clask, at Woolwich. Shortly after her arrival, she went for a month's motor tour of the Continent with Miss Erica Hoby. The tour started in Belgium. At Aachen they stayed with friends and then they went down the Rhine Valley to Munich. Thence on to Austria through Salzburg and the Upper Austrian lakes, where they stayed with friends at Gmunden. In the spring or summer, Miss McHardy hopes to go by air to Budapest. While in Vienna she and Miss Hoby met Mrs Allen and Miss Diana Allen (Christchurch), and Miss Juliet Heygate, who are at present living there. Towards the end of January Miss McHardy hopes to go to Grindelwald for a few weeks ski-ing with some Swiss friends. After that she will make a tour in Italy and France. Her return journey to New Zealand will probably not be begun until the autumn. She hopes her route will be via Suez and Singapore. At Bournemouth on November 14, the marriage was solemnised of Miss Viola Macmillan Brown, daughter of the late Professor J. Macmillan Brown, and Signor Notariello, the well known vocalist. Signor Notariello may make a tour of Australia and New Zealand in the near future. At present he and his wife are living at Bournemouth. Dr. A. J. Harrop, agent in England of the University of New Zealand, makes reference in to-day's issue of the "New Zealand News" to the tragic death of Sir Edwin Deller, principal of the University of London. Dr. Harrop says Sir Edwin's death is a blow, not only to London, but to the universities of the whole Empire. He was treasurer of the Universities Bureau of the British Empire, a body which acts as a clearing house of university affairs and is of special value in keeping overseas universities in touch with those of Britain. In spite of his manifold duties, Sir Edwin had consented, only a few days before the accident occurred, to act on a small committee with representatives of Canada and New Zealand to consider the question of exchange of staff between universities of the Empire. His wise counsel and good humoured tolerance will be greatly missed. On December 7, at West Worthing, the death occurred of the Rev. Edward Hutton Bell, third son of the late Sir Francis Dillon Bell, K.C.M.G., C.B. Mrs Bell survives her husband. The funeral is to take place at Heene Church, Worthing, on December 11. The death occurred at the Royal Masonic Hospital, London, on December 4, of Anne, wife of Mr H. P. Olney, of Ceylon, and daughter of the late W. Macintosh Murray and Mrs Raymond Parker, of Canterbury. Since leaving Auckland toward the end of August, Mr and Mrs R. Stone have visited a number of countries. They spent over a month in America. They left New York by the Queen Mary on October 12, disembarking at Cherbourg. They went on to Paris where they were the guests of friends who live in France four miles from the Swiss border. While staying there they made some very interesting trips by motor-car, among places visited being the famous St. Bernard Auspice. Mr and Mrs Stone arrived in London three weeks ago and since then the latter, who is a well-known vocalist in Auckland, has been continuing her studies. She has been offered a part in a production to be staged in Glasgow, but this she has declined, and she has now under consideration an offer of a part in the musical production, "Tulip Time," which is to open in London in February. Tours are to be made in Scotland, and Mr and Mrs Stone hope to visit Germany before they return to the Dominion.
