6.0 Mr. Henry Rhodes: 'Verdicts from Dust'
Modern police methods have become so thorough that most of us have little knowledge of the subtle ways in which the police track down their victims. Did you know, for instance, that it is quite possible to tell a man's calling by an examination of the wax in his ears? It is often by the little things, the minutiae of a man's life, that most is discoverable about him; similarly, it is by means of a microscopic examination of the 'professional dusts (as, for instance, the specks and flecks on clothing are called) that a man's crime may be unerringly detected today. It is about those little, but very important, factors in modern police evidence that Mr. Rhodes, who is General Secretary of the British Association of Chemists, will talk this evening.

For years the pages of the New Stateman have been enlivened, week by week, with an article (a 'Middle' is the technical term) mysteriously signed 'Y.Y.' It is an open secret now that beneath those cryptic initials hides the name of the literary editor of a London daily and one of the best essayists of our time, Robert Lynd. Like good conversation, the good essay depends far more upon the manner of its telling than upon the matter told. Thus, Mr. Lynd can lend an air of 'worth-whileness' to almost any subject under the sun: Whether he writes of gnats or an apple before breakfast, dirt-track racing or the advantages of a monarchy, cabbages or kings, the effect upon the reader will be the same - that of having engaged in friendly conversation with one whose mind is stored with a long experience that has bred commonsense and good humour.
