RESULT OF OUR GREAT OUTBOARD MOTOR COMPETITION. THE JOHNSON JUNIOR SEA-HORSE WON BY CHESHAM READER. STORIES SUBMITTED. GENERAL HIGH STANDARD OF
AFTER careful consideration and re-consideration of all the entries received for the competition, we have finally decided to award the prize of a Johnson Junior Sea-Horse outboard motor, value £23, to : Mr. Drew Barr, “Little Germains,” Chesham, Bucks,
for his story entitled ” The Convert.”
This story was one of the last batch of entries to be received, and was the second story submitted by Mr. Barr for the competition. This perseverance has had its reward, and we congratulate Mr. Barr upon his success, which was well-deserved and gained by a most entertaining story. Of the entries received last month, apart from Mr. Barr’s, we should like to mention” Susan,” by R. P. R. Powell. This tale of a resurrected outboard, taken from an old junk-. yard, had a ring of first-hand experience about it, and pleased us
with its spontaneity. ” Quicksand ” by Kenneth Hawkey was effective for its intimate knowledge of the Cornish coast, the locality in which the plot of the story was unravelled.
