ONE of the oldest and most interesting buildings in London is the little Norman Church of St. Bartholomew-the-Great, Smithfield, hidden away behind the great hospital which was founded at the same time. Huilt by Rahere, said to have been a Court jester before he became a Canon of St. Paul's, it has been changed singularly little since it was built eight centuries ago. In his talk this afternoon Mr. Allen Walker will tell the history and describe the interesting features of the church.

IN the second talk in his series the Master of Balliol pointed out how the rival claims of economics, politics and ethics to have their own values accepted as paramount confused much of our thinking on social problems. This evening he will begin to examine the claim of economics, inquiring how far it is true that buying-and-selling relations are the only ones that matter, and how much force there is in the economic interpretation of history.

mHE Statutory Commission, under the Presidency of Sir John Simon , is just about to start its work in India, and the future of India hangs, to some considerable extent, upon its findings and the spirit in which they are received. In this talk Sir Frederick Whyto who, as President of the Legislative Assembly from 1920 to 1925, has had a unique experience of Indian politics, will discuss the many problems with which the Commission is confronted, and the particular field it was appointed to investigate.
His talk will be followed with the greatest interest at a time when India and Indian affairs are looming so large in the minds of all men who are concerned with the future of our Indian Empire.
