Address by the Rt. Rev. The Bishop of Blackburn
It was to Dr. Herbert that Gracie Fields paid such a remarkable tribute when she broadcast on July 30 after her long and serious illness. That night, she told listeners how, at the critical moment when her life seemed to be slipping from her, the Bishop of Blackburn visited her in the nursing home and prayed at her bedside. From that moment onwards, she gathered strength.
Dr. Herbert, well known in the North of England, particularly in Lancashire, became Bishop of Blackburn in 1926. He has always been prominently associated with the Blackpool Sands Mission.

Lately, as Secretary to the Archbishop of York's Committee on Unemployment, she has organised an enquiry into unemployment and edited the report ' Men without Work', which is recognised as a unique contribution to the subject. She is one of the secretaries to the newly formed Council on the Christian Faith and Common Life, presided over by the Archbishop of Canterbury.
2—' The Monk and his Home' by Alec MacDonald
On this occasion Michael, and not his father, the Rector, has the exciting adventure. Michael is shown round a fourteenth-century monastery by Brother John, a kindly monk. Monasteries, at this time, were the home of education and culture. Michael finds the contrast between ' school' as it then was, and as he knows it, startling.

Why is it always twenty years since anybody ever saw me ? You might think I'd been dead and buried', Timmy Tiverton , the out-of-work little comedian, complained in the last instalment. well, this time he has nothing to complain of-he finds himself literally surrounded by old acquaintances from the Halls in a fantastic road-house just outside Dunbury. Roger Liss , Hope Ollerton 's bashful admirer, turns up again, and is able to give Roger some real information about his young woman.
