THIS is the third of the series of talks intended to acquaint English people-in particular, members of the Women's Institute movement-with the rural life of countries other than their own. Mrs. Alexander will be remembered for her talk on Jugo-Slavia, which opened the series.
Centre Court Matches from All England Lawn Tennis Club Wimbledon
Running Commentary by Capt. H. B. T. Wakelam
The Daventry Quartet and Dorothy Smithard (Soprano)
Fred Brough (Violin)
The Wimbledon championships, despite the recent successes of foreign invaders, are still the most important fixture in the European lawn tennis year. This summer, with Big Bill Tilden himself competing, as well as the French-men who have reigned supreme for the last two years, and the Germans back in full force and fine fighting form, the meeting is certain to be full of thrills, and the absence of Lenglen will probably hardly be felt.
This is the first of a series of accounts of important matches that will be broadcast from the Centre Court this year. There will be another broadcast tomorrow afternoon, a third on Friday, and a fourth on Saturday - the day when, weather permitting, the match is played that decides who is to be the Men's Singles Champion for the year.

Relayed from the Speech Room on the occasion of the Harrow School Speech Day
IX most of the older public schools, Speech Day is the great moment of the year, the occasion when old boys come back in vast numbers, and the boys of the present generation have a chance to gaze on a bevy of public men of distinction, from generals to county cricketers. Harrow is one of the oldest of all the public schools, for it was founded in 1571. and it has as many of its old boys prominent in public life as any other school. The visitors today will probably include Mr. Baldwin, the Prime Minister, who is the most distinguished of present Old Harrovians.

Woodland Wanderings (Waldwanderung) (Huns
Andersen) : With a Water Lily (Mit einer Wasserlilie) (Ibsen) ; Ragna (Drachmann) ; From Monte Pincio (Björnson)
WOODLAND WANDERINGS is an invocation to a loved one to roam through the moonlit woods.
In With a Water-Lily the lover, bringing flowers to his maiden, reminds her that a water-sprite-sleeps beneath the placid waters on which float the lilies. So, he says, within her bosom sleeps a spirit.
Ragna is one of a set of six Reminiscences of Mountain and Fiord. dedicated to the poet whose words Grieg has set.
IN the first two of this series of talks Professor Burt dealt with the mental growth of children. and the problems of work and over-work, from the psychological point of view. This evening another distinguished psychologist—Dr. Crichton-Miller, who has had much experience of psychotherapy—will discuss how far the personality of the parents affects the psychology of the child, and how their influence varies with the age and sex of both parent and child.

The Musical AVALOS (on three Xylophones)
EVER since May 20 last-the evening on which the microphone first eavesdropped at ' George's '—listeners have been prowling the West End-without success--in search of the famous coffee-stall. Tonight we are to fiaw a second broadcast, from ' Georges.' Mr. Gilbert Stock will, no doubt, come as usual for his evening cheese-cake—though Mr. Tether will be away on his holidays until the end of July.
