FOR CHILDREN ONLY — a new Express contest that everybody is talking about.

Starting today all children aged 11 and under have a chance to win a wonderful Christmas present — a Dalek — a replica of the buzzing, trundling monsters that dominate the B.B.C.'s television series "Dr. Who."

A planet to conquer? A space ship to run ? The Daleks have captured the imagination of the whole country.

Now the Daily Express offers. FIFTY Daleks as prizes in the most original contest of the year.

Read the instructions on the right carefully and a Dalek could be yours on Christmas Day.

TO enter this contest —open to children of 11 years of age and under—this is all you have to do:--

1. Take a plain post card.

2. Write your name and address and age in BLOCK CAPITALS at the top. Write under it the "pet" name you would give to your own DALEKS if you had one. For example, "DALLY," "TINNY TOMMY," "RUMBLY RON," etc. (these must not be used).

3. Address the postcard to :--


Daily Express,

4, Racquet Court, London; E.C.4.

and post it to reach us not later than Tuesday, December 15.


1. THE DALEKS will be awarded to the so best and most original names submitted. Age and neatness wilt be taken into consideration.

2. The Editor's decision will be final.

3. Children related to employees of Heaverbrook Newspapers are not allowed to enter.
