FENIMORE COOPER never wrote a more romantic story than the true history of Captain John Smith , who fell into the hands of hostile Indians, in the very early days of European settlement in America, and was saved by the love of Pocahontas, the daughter of the Indian chief, in the way that Miss Rhoda Power will tell this afternoon.
3.0 Musical Interlude
THE story of the Holy Grail is the most mystic and spiritual, and the story of Lancelot the most human, in the whole of the Arthurian legend as Malory records if. This afternoon's broadcast will tell how the vision of the Holy Grail came into the life of Lancelot, and how, after seeing it, he repented of his sin.
IN his two previous talks Mr. Leslie Lewis dealt with the use of walnut and oak, two of the oldest of the woods used in furnishing in England. The Victorians seized upon mahogany, and consecrated it as the only dignified material for the dining - room,
- whilst for drawing-rooms and bedrooms it became almost equally de regie. The ponderous magnificence of Victorian sideboards and half-testers has ceased to appeal to us, and mahogany itself has acquired from its associations a certain amount of opprobrium that it does not at all deserve, for it is a lovely wood, and it has many uses in the modern house. Some of these Mr. Lewis will describe this afternoon, as well as those of the newer woods that have lately come into vogue.
