Competition No. ( ).

Summer Time

(Set by "Duom.") Many people find it difficult to remember whether the clock should be put on or back at the beginning and end of Summer Time. A prize of three guineas is offered for a new and original four line jingle which will make this dear.

Entries for this competition must be received not later than Monday, April 20th. The results of the competition will be announced in our issue of April 25th.
