Eleanor Farjeon, 'The Red Apples'
During the last few years, the writing of stories and verse for children has come into its own again, and a growing number of writers of real distinction have devoted themselves largely to this very fascinating branch of literature. Miss Eleanor Farjeon is among this happy band, and her contributions to such periodicals as the Merry-Go-Round and the Joy Street books will be remembered by many discriminating parents. She is, too, the author of two delightful sets of verses - 'The Town Child's Alphabet' and 'The Country Child's Alphabet,' which appeared last year.

ON the three last occasions of the Armistice
Night programme listeners have had the pleasure of hearing the Army Reminiscences of that cheery little band, the ' Roosters.' This party must be almost the last of the original Army troupes extant, and wherever they perform this feature of their entertainment-the scenes and humours of army life in war time -is continually asked for. The idea of these reminiscences originated with Arthur Mackness , the tenor of the party. Most of the material was subsequently entrusted to the pen of Percy Merriman , two of the scenes being written by William Mack and one by George Western. The effects by which the Army sounds and scenes have been brought so vividly to the ears of listeners are managed by the ' Roosters' themselves, with the help of old Army friends, find much curiosity has been aroused among listeners as to how the effect of an army on the march can be so excellently presented, but the ' Roosters ' like to preserve a ' Brer Rabbit' attitude on this professional secret.
On Armistice night this year the ' Roosters' will once again give one of the Army scenes- a typical Y.M.C.A. concert of the 1914-1918 period complete with Padre, piano (with a past), good-hearted but amateur perform and » generally ribald audience.
