“Mista Bright” is a new glass and silver polish which not only keeps windscreen, windows and mirror clear and free from condensation, and is, therefore, an important safety factor, but it is also recommended by opticians as it cleans and polishes spectacles and keeps them free from mist and condensation, and so gives clearer vision. It is also effective on cut-glass and chromium. It is manufactured by G. W. & A. D. Aspinall Ltd., Jason Works, Holland Road, Hove, Sussex, and is available in jars at 2s. 6d., 3s. 9d., 5s. and 7s. 6d. each.
” Tinkerbell,” manufactured by Cromil Ltd., 200, Wolverhampton Street, Dudley, Worcs., is available in bottles costing 1s. 6d., for cleaning windows, mirrors, chromium and gloss paintwork. There is also a “Tinkerbell” car polish in 2s. 9d. bottles, and this cleans quickly and polishes straight out immediately it is applied, without delay or hard labour.
The Scottish Sprite Club, formed at the end of last year, is open to owners of Austin Healey Sprites resident in Scotland. Anyone interested in joining should contact Mr. I. M. Graham, 12, Magdala Crescent, Edinburgh, 12.

Anyone who owns or knows of a suitable venue which could be leased by a motoring Club should contact their local motoring Club or the Competitions Department of the R.A.C., Pall Mall, London, S.W.1.
