'IS cycling dead ? ' This question, raised periodically in the newspapers, and the subject of Mr. Fitzwater Wray 's talk at 7.30, would almost seem to be answered beforehand by Major Watling's short talk at 7.25. The Cycle and Motor-Cycle Show at Olympia is a convincing demonstration of how large a section of the public still prefers to transport itself not on four wheels, but on two, and of that section a very considerable proportion, scorning the petrol engine's artful aid, resorts for propulsion to two pedals and two legs, in the healthful, old-fashioned way.

THE WIRELESS ORCHESTRA
Conducted by JOHN ANSELL
THE legend of the Flying Dutchman tells of a captain who, trying to round the Cape of Good Hope in a storm, swore that he would do it if he had to sail on for ever. The Devil overheard, took him at his word, and sent him a-sailing for Eternity, or until he should find a woman who would love him to the death.
The Overture is among the finest pieces of storm music in existence. It owes much of its vividness to Wagner's impressions of a stormy voyage made, from Riga to London, the year before he wrote it.

9.15 Mr. S. K. RATCLIFFE: How America goes to the Polls'
IN the last of his series of talks from Daventry last Tuesday at 8.0, Mr. Ratcliffe dealt generally with the American Presidential Election. Tonight he will describe the actual procedure by which, next Tuesday, 35,000,000 free and independent citizens of the United States will decide whether Herbert Hoover or Al Smith shall be the next occupant of the White House. As American elections are conducted in a method, and in a spirit, very different to our own, and as the clash of policies and personalities is as complete in this contest as it has ever been, this should be a particularly interesting talk.
