LONDON, May 6. (By cable)—In a couple of hours I shall leave for Sheffield where tonight I have to address a large political gathering. That in itself is hardly an item of world-shattering importance, but it has been yours and my habit, for many years in these Letters, to deal frankly with each other, and I want to discuss with you certain doubts that are in my mind.
WHAT shall we give them? As sure as June comes around, thousands of uncles, aunts, cousins and best friends frantically search for shower or wedding gifts and wish they themselves were gifted with second sight. Of course if you can afford to present a new car or a house and lot, you’re all set; but most of us haven’t so much to spend, and welcome a few helpful hints on solving the problem.By MARGARET SMITH, KATHLEEN KRAFFT7 min
