SOME six months ago the Children's Hour was fortunate in enrolling Miss Farjeon as a regular contributor of stories, and since then there have been included in the programmes not only several tales selected from her books, but others written specially for the purpose. Many of her delightful poems have been broadcast. The idea of a short programme on the lines of ' Eleanor Farjeon in Verse, Song, and Story ' seemed a good one—and so here it is.

A One-Act Play by H. E. HOLME
THE Master-at-Arms' Mess on board H.M.S. Ambitious is a plain interior, entered by two curtained doors. In the centre is a fairly large table, covered with a white cloth and partially laid for tea. At the side of the table is a long stool, at the end is a chair. There is a small locked cupboard on the wall, with shelves above containing crockery and other articles. Against tho wall is a small writing-desk with a chair in front of it.
It is about 4.30 on a winter's afternoon. James Carter is standing by tho table and throws a piece of broken crockery through one of the doors, narrowly missing Henry Brown who is just coming in and manages to dodgo the missile.
