John McDonald, age i i years. Dear Sir Here is my entry for the Competition entitled " What I did on Coronation Day " 1 awoke at 8.15 a.m. washed and dressed myself by 8.45 am. On having my breakfast I ran on a few messages to a few shops which happened to be open luckily. 1 then went to 9.45 Mass with the Te Deum and short Benediction after. After aiding the altar for I am an Altar Boy I hurried home to listen in to the Coronation Service on the wireless. As I listened I thought how wonderful it was to hear the Coronation as well as the Peers and Peeressess us! 18o miles away from London. At a quarter to two I went in to my dinner and ate a good one. A quarter of an hour later a friend called and asked me to play cricket. 1 obliged him and played till 5.45 returning for my tea. I then listened to the Empire Broadcast the speech by Stanley Baldwin and the Speech by his Majesty the King and Coronation Party on the national programme. At teno' clock I went to bed after a very happy day My name is John McDonald and my age is 11 years John F. Stephen, age 8.
Dear Editor, We had a procssion, and there were prizes for the best dressed-up people. Later on, there were sports, but when there had been only three races it began pour with rain, so we had to stop.
We had a Scots flag a Saint George's flag a Saint Andrew's flag and a Union Jack on our house.

Dear Children's Catholic Herald Editor, In our village there was a procession of decorated carts and cars which were very pretty. They were covered with gaily-coloured flowers and flags. I saw very well. Then I listened in. It was very beautiful. At night there was a huge bonfire and people sang songs very late.
I hope you had a nice time on Coronation day to.
