^LSO just back after seven weeks in
Queensland is Mrs. Elsa Chauvel, who stayed at Surfers Paradise first and then made a sentimental journey to the Laming- ton Plateau, where she and her husband, the late Charles Chauvel, made "Sons of Matthew."

^LWAYS sure of seeing the Neville
Christie family in the snow at least two or three times during the season, and their next visit is on July 10, when the Christies take their elder daughter, Louise, to Thredbo to compete in the University of Sydney races. Later in the month they'll go again, to stay in the Thredbo Alpine Hotel, and this time their two other children, Honey and Robert, will also go with them. I like the sound of Honey's lynx jacket bound with chocolate-brown leather.

.pHE WORLD OF LILLIPUT exhibition
which the women's committee of the National Trust are holding at "Lindesay," Darling Point, will appeal to both adults and children, but I predict parents will have a difficult time getting the litde ones away from the fascinating display of miniature "goodies." These include furniture like the cedar Colonial chest of drawers pictured on page 23, china teasets, and miniature pieces of silver, brass, and glass, which have been collected in and around Sydney by Mrs. John Furber and her sub-committee. There's a gala night on July 25 for mem- bers, and on July 26 and 27 it's open to the public from 11 a.m. until 4.30 p.m.
