Page 2 SUNDAY PIC TOR IA Ij Sept ember 6,1942. WE KILL “W” PLAN THE“W ”plan is dead, killed by exposure in the “Sunday Pictorial.” If it had been Allowed to survive, thousands of un­married wives of Service­men would have been branded as “living in sin.” The“ W ” is—or was to have been—a large white stamp on pay books issued to legal wives of serving men, so that railway com­panies would not grant cheap travel tickets in error to unmarried wives. When the plan was an­nounced three weeks ago, the “Sunday Pictorial ”was the first to protest that the absence of“ W ”would also brand the holders as un­married. though they might have been known for years as “Mrs." With our protest we sug­gested that the best way out of the difficulty would be for the railways to issue cheap tickets to all Service­ men’s wives, whether legally married or not. Yesterday the companies agreed to issue cheap tickets to unmarried wives. or Office /COUNTLESS thousands of men and women who work long hours in factory or field, home or office, find in delicious‘ Ovaltine ’the additional nourishment which helps so much to maintain strength, energy and endurance. Consider the ingredients of‘ Ovaltine ’—malt, milk and eggs. Each one is a valuable food in it­self. When scientifically combined in ‘Qvaltine’ they constitute a con­centrated health-giving food of ex­ceptional merit. The eggs are particularly Impor­tant because- they are the best source of lecithin —an important element for revitalising the nervous system. Without this property no food beverage nan be fully restor­ing. For these reasons drink• Ovaltine •regularly everyday. Make it your bedtime beverage too. It is recog­ nised everywhere as an ideal ‘night-cap’ for helping you to enjoy the best kind of restorative sleep. In preparing' Ovaltine,’ note that as it is naturally sweet vou need not add sugar Delicious Oval tine p593a c^-L l a 4<5 ---—SHOES—-- Sold by selected retailers allover the country.

His Time Problem BECAUSE a promised wed­ding present— a clock —failed to arrive, Peter Scott Martin, a young aero-fitter, and his bride found themselves in their ne.w home without any means of telling the time.

Police found it on the mantel­piece of his home. Yesterday, at Carlisle, Martin was accused of stealing the watch. Producing testimonials from Martin’s Flight-Lieutenant, the solicitor for the defence said:“ I have met Martin’s wife, and she is avery nice girl. “They furnished a -house, and received promises of various wedding presents, in­cluding a clock, which had not arrived by the end of June. “He had no Intention of per­manently keeping this watch.” Martin was discharged as a first offender Immediately before this at­tack, U.S.-flown Bostons, also accompanied by Spitfires, ient a rain of bombs Leon Havre docks.
