IN his last talk Mr. Collinson described the islands that lie off the North-East coast of Australia, and came (town to Sydney. Today ha returns to the South Sea Islands-particularly the British Solomons, with their strange people and strange ways.

The Revue Star
IT was at the beginning of the war, just when we most needed cheering up, that
Mr. C. B. Cochran brought Delysia over from Paris to play in that series of intimate revues at the Ambassadors Theatre of which she was one of the chief attractions. Her humo.ur. her broken English, her dancing and the charm of her personality conquered London, and many a leave man found solace in Odds and Ends, More, and Pell Mell. Later she appeared in many of Mr. Cochran's spectacular productions—Afgar, Mayfair and Montmartrc, and, more recently, after a visit to America, in On with the Dance, and its successor, Still Dancing. But. though she can dominate a big stage, she is still pre-eminent for the qualities that made her famous in revue intime, and which make her equally irresistible before the microphone.

10.0 app. An Excerpt from 'The Tempest' played by members of the Oxford University Dramatic Society
The University of Oxford is a thousand years old, and yet one of its most prominent and characteristic institutions is a mushroom growth whose first appearance can be remembered by many men still in their prime. The O.U.D.S. - everybody in Oxford calls them the Owds - were founded forty years ago by Mr. Arthur Bourchier, the first of the many brilliant actors whom they have given to the professional stage; but no occasion is more typical of the life of Oxford than a repetition generale of the O.U.D.S.. in the New Theatre in winter and in some cloistered College garden in the Summer Term. This year, with their accustomed boldness, the O.U.D.S. are producing The Tempest, and the performance that listeners will hear tonight is an excerpt from the show that Oxford has just been seeing, in the afternoon under the grey walls of Worcester, and in the evening on the smooth lawns of the Botanical Gardens, under the shadow of Magdalen Tower.

Tonight's game will follow the same procedure as to play and announcements as the two previous broadcasts.
