WORCESTER BOARD OF GUARDIANS - NURSES AND EXTRA LEAVE – The question of two nurses being refused an extension of leave. Mr Partridge said they had asked that they might be allowed to attend a dance and there was some suggestion that they wanted leave until 2 o’clock in the morning, but the House Committee refused to grant it. There was some misunderstanding and the nurses now wanted an hour’s extra leave in order that they might attend the Theatre. The Chairman expressed the view that if the House Committee had rejected the request, the Board should support the Committee.

CITY POLICE COURT – THREATS – William Evans, Moulder, 14 Blockhouse Street, was summoned for using threats towards Florence Bagley, widow, 15 Blockhouse Street. Complainant said that if she did not leave the house he would “do her in”. In reply Mr Harrison defending said that the defendant used the threats in the streets. The threats used were said to other people and not to herself. The defendant was bound over and ordered to pay the costs.
