OF all the branches of narrative poetry, the epic is indisputably the most important; and some of the greatest achievements in poetry of any sort have been cast in this form. Today Mr. Stobart and Miss Somerville will deal with the earliest and most famous of all known epics -the Iliad and the Odyssey
T7VERYBODY who has ever played a part knows the difficulties and problems associated with rehearsals: acute enough on the professional stage, and amongst amateurs often fatal to the production. This afternoon Mrs. Penelope Wheeler will give some strictly practical advice as to how to get the best possible value out of every minute of the time.
FOR centuries the sages have been telling us how to live well; preachers, moralists, political theorists, economists—all have poured out an unbroken stream of exhortation and advice. And yet most of us still find it very hard. Nowadays, however, the medical aspect of life occupies more and more important a place in people's thoughts, and it is from this point of view that Professor Greenwood will address his good counsel in this talk.

Yet in poetry,, philosophy and drama it is a mine of riches, which Sir Edward Denison Ross will describe in this evening's talk, from the ' Rig Veda ' and the ' Mahabharata ' to the contemporary poetry of Rabindranath Tagore.
