4 , tN. HER MAJESTY AND THE WOMEN’S NATIONAL SERVICE MOVEMENT: QUEEN MARY RECOGNISES ITS NATIONAL IMPORTANCE BY ER PRESENCE.
The great meeting of women held on March 17, at the Albert Hall, in connection with the work which women are doing in many forms of National Service, was honoured by the presence of Queen Mary, despite the fact that her Majesty is ir mourning, and also that it is her rule not to attend public meetings. The cachet of her presence was, therefore, a signal goof of the far-reaching importance and the incalculable value of the work which wor :n are doing in many directions, giving proof alike of their patriotism
and their adaptability to every kind of employment, not excluding many hitherto con- sidered the monopoly of men. The Chairman, Mr. Neville Chamberlain, expressed, by desire of the Queen, her great appreciation of the magnificent servces rendered by women. Interesting speeches were also made by Mrs. H. J. Tennant, Miss Violet Markham, Lori Derby, Mr. Prothero, and Mr. Hodge, and the demonstration was in every sense a great success.–[Deaw’in Copyrelhted sn the Uitned States a s Canada.]
