The Honours List The New Year's Honours List, contrary to

expectation, has not appreciably added to the list of Labour Peers. Six new Peerages are created and of these only two go to members of the Labour Party—Mr. Arthur Ponsonby and Major D. L. Aman. Other new Peers are Sir Willoughby Dickinson (Hon. Secretary of the World Alliance for Promoting International Friendship through the Churches), Sir William Noble (the well-known ship' owner), Sir Hugh Trenchard (the famous Chief of the Air Staff), and Sir Charles Wakefield (who was a distinguished Lord Mayor of London). Among the women to receive honours we note the name of Lady Bailey, well known for her adventurous flights, particularly that from the Cape. She becomes a Dame. Miss Maude Royden and Miss Gertrude Tuckwell (who has performed eminent services for women in industry and as Magistrates) become Companions of Honour.
