' Peoples of the World '-5,
' Native Farmers of the West Indies'
W. G. FREEMAN
On the east of the Americas the summits of a submerged mountain range form an archipelago enclosing the Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico. Columbus, discovering these islands, called them the West Indies under the impression that he had found a new route to India. Here, unknown to the world, were forests of rich wood and delicious fruits, of which Spain took possession until British and Dutch and French and Danish sailors sailed along and disputed the prize.
In fights for the islands the aboriginal natives-the West Indian Carib-virtually disappeared. Today Negro descendants of the Africans who were shipped there as slaves are in a vast ascendancy. The islands produce their wealth--cocoa and oil and rubber from Trinidad; pineapples from the Bahamas ; bananas and oranges from Jamaica; limes from Montserrat; and so on. W. G. Freeman is to talk about the native farmers-their crops, home life, work, amusement. But in all this fertility nature takes away with one hand what it gives with the other, and earthquake and hurricane can ruin the small landowners in a day.

'Forces that Mould our Lives'-6
H. A. MESS, PH.D.
This evening, in his last talk in this series, Dr. H. A. Mess is to discuss leadership as a force moulding our lives. He will show how the giving and taking of leadership are instinctive in mankind. He will talk about institutional leadership, or leadership by virtue of office. About the crowd representative and the human symbol. About dominant leadership, or leadership by force of personality. About crowd exponents and persuasive leadership. And, finally, about the place of pioneer and martyr.
Professor W. G. de Burgh is to give his opening talk in Part 11 of this series. Part II is to deal with Humanism and Morals.

Most of us at some time or other have looked through an old photograph album-the family kind, bound in leather with gilt clasps-and have wondered what sort of lives were really led by the men in chimney-pot hats and the women .in crinolines looking up at us with such surprised expressions from the stiff pages.
A picture like that was taken in Edinburgh in 1860-Wedding Group- and Philip Wade 's play is an attempt to describe how it came to he taken. One thing is certain-if things had not fallen out as they did, it would never have been taken at all.
Philip Wade jumped into fame as a radio playwright with Family Tree four years ago, and enhanced his reputation with Oranges and Lemons. He was featured in ' People You Hear' in April.
An article by Philip Wade will be found on page 3. This play will be repeated in the Regional programme tomorrow night

Tonight's broadcast is unique in the fact that it is the only one to be given in the series by a foreigner. Professor Erwin Schrodinger had the distinction of winning the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1933. He is at present over in England, and was especially invited by the University of Oxford to conduct his researches there. He knows England very well, and is well-known for his tolerant and witty comments upon affairs in general.
MURIEL HERBERT (soprano) William Boyce (1710-1779) is chiefly remembered as organist, church-composer and editor of ' Cathedral Music, being a collection in score of the most valuable and useful compositions for that service by the several English masters of the last two hundred years ', a. compilation that, as Grove says,
' served as the basis of the Enghsh cathedral repertory for a century or so after its publication'. But Boyce also distinguished himself in the sphere of theatre music. (His Harlequin's Invasion (1759) contains one song known by everyone 'Heart of Oak'.)
The Shepherd's. Lottery, a ' 'musical entertainment' by one Moses Mendez , for which Boyce wrote the music, was produced at Drury Lane in 1751. The ' symphony ' (or entr'acte, as we should call it) that concludes the suite is a first-rate example of Boyce's sturdy English-ness.
