The Mayor of Worcester (Ald. C. Edwards) was recently approached by the British League of Help, with a view to the adoption of some French town or village by the City of Worcester.

The matter was brought before the Corporation at their last meeting, and it was recommended to adopt the village of Gouzeaucourt. Yesterday (Thursday) afternoon a meeting of citizens was held in the Theatre Royal in support of that decision. The Mayor presided and he was accompanied by the Deputy Mayor (Ald A Carlton), Miss Scriven (Organising Secretary of the League). Major Fox (a member of the editorial staff of the “Morning Post” and of the Executive Committee of the League) and Colonel H. T. Clarke. The attendance, which was not a very large one, included Mrs Ernest Day, Major H. F. Williams, Messrs W. Hunter, Sutton Cockran, and J. W. Cassid
