In his second talk Professor Mottram divides food into three types, growth, protective and fuel, to each of which groupings one talk in the series is being allowed. He shows that mixing of foods is essential, as one form of food can, as a rule, only produce one sort of result, and there are three results which it is necessary to obtain from one's food, i.e., growth, protection, and warmth and energy; and it is imperative to regulate the rate of growth in the right relation to the production of energy.

THE name of Maurice Elvey has been connected with British films from the very earliest years. He will speak tonight as a man thoroughly acquainted with every ' trick of the trade.' In his work as a producer he has consistently kept abreast of the times and adapted his methods to changing fashions in technique. Several of the most considerable British films ' camo from his megaphone,' if we may so phrase it. He made Roses of Picardy, a foolishly titled but sensitively handled version of that great war book ' The Spanish Farm,' Hindle Wakes , in which the dominance of mill machinery over the lives of the cotton hands was suggested with all the ' expressionistic ' skill of a Fritz Lang , The Luck of the Navy and Palais de Danse, shortly to be released. Mr...Elvey is now producer to the Gaumont Company.
