THE REV G A STUDDERT KENNEDY HOME – Lecture at the College Hall – The College Hall was crowded on Sunday afternoon when The Rev Studdert Kennedy gave an address on “The Vision of God”. The Dean explained that on Saturday Mr Kennedy was decorated with the Military Cross and he had offered to speak in that hall while home on his brief leave. Mr Kennedy spoke for an hour in characteristic fashion. His address was a well reasoned argument. Here and there occurred passages of moving eloquence, and now and then flashes of droll humour.

WOUNDED MEN IN THE MALVERNS – Entertained by Sir Henry and Lady Urwick and Others – On Monday afternoon a very successful entertainment for the wounded sailors and soldiers in the hospitals in and around Malvern was given at the Assembly Rooms, by Sir Henry and Lady Urwick and a talented party, Malvern College being strongly represented on the platform.
