EXCEPT for certain conspicuous instances of coastal erosion and so on, the face of the country seems quite permanent and unchanging, but to the geologist the whole of the landscape is in an almost fluid state. Rivers, sea, ice and wind arc constantly at work wearing away or ' building up valleys, sandbanks, dunes, etc., and even in our own time we can see a tiny cross-section of the long process of change that is going on through the centuries. This process will be the subject of Mr. Scott's series of talks, of which this afternoon's is the first.
THE schoolboy emigrant whose letters are to be broadcast this afternoon is a London boy from the Latimer Road School, who went to Canada in April, 1926, as a result of a broadcast talk on the advantages of emigration for boys. He has proved the advantages very completely in his own case.

SOME hundreds of- British visitors have given us descriptions, impressions, eulogies, condemnations and what not, of New York; but New York is a very different proposition to the visitor and to the shop-girl working for, and living on, her twenty dollars a week. Miss Honoria Janies , who gives
. this talk, worked behind the counter in one of the biggest and smartest department stores on Fifth Avenue, and she will give listeners a vivid impression of how the West-End '. shop-girl lives and works in New York.
IN her previous three talks Miss Eileen Power presented a picture of Europe in the Dark
Ages and the Middle Ages proper that followed them. This evening she will devote her last talk to the reasons for the transition from mediæval
Christendom to the modern Europe of which Mr. Somervell will talk in the concluding portion of the course-the waning power of feudalism and the Papacy, the decay of the Empire, and the rise of. strong royal governments which made possible the nation-state.
