local paper to the fact that people are unable to secure holiday accommodation because of landladies' refusuls to take children. My wife and I, who ourselves have two young children, have discussed this problem and have decided to promote a scheme offering suitable accommodation to children aged two-and-a-half to sixteen, whilst their parents secure local accommodation elsewhere. In cases of early application we could promise to fix the parents up at reasonable charges. It is further intended to give children a holiday whose parents do not accompany them-these children will naturally be older ones. Before launching such a scheme we wish to ascertain from readers their views on this subject and to find out whether there really is a need for this kind of accommodation. Would readers like to send their children to a Catholic household where it is hoped to engage an S.R.N. as a helper, where cleanliness and comfort will be the main aim and where children will be catered for spiritually and physically. The charge would not be snore than £2 10s. for full bed and board, washing, etc., and it is intended to provide adequate farm produce (eggs, milk, etc.) and fresh vegetables. The house, it is hoped, will be in or near Looe, the amenities of which as a holiday resort, need not be emphasised. Bathing and walks will be supervised, and parents' individual wishes as to the care of their children will be given every attention. It is not anticipated that the scheme will he in operation this year, but next year should see a start to what we believe to be a long-needed service. In time it is hoped to be able to take a percentage of poor children at greatly reduced rates-possibly free. All letters will he answered.
