BASQUE CHILDREN'S BULLETIN.
No: 2. August 1938.
The office must start with an apology for its late appearance, a move from the old house at 53, Marshan Street, to the new quarters at 4, Great Smith Street, has been partly responsible for the delay. It is hoped that any members of local Committees who are up and down will make a point of calling at the office and seeing us in our new home, a set of old roomy brick huts tucked away behind the tall buildings of Westminster.
This second bulletin is being devoted mainly to the question of the children's education. The idea is in subsequent numbers to devote each one to the different aspect of the work among the children. The next problem to be tackled will be that of their health.
