An appeal on behalf of the Musicians' Benevolent Fund by Myra Hess , C.B.E.
The Musicians' Benevolent Fund, a registered charity for the assistance of sick, aged, and needy members of the musical profession, has found its problems vastly aggravated by the war. Thousands of musicians who have given the best part of their lives to entertaining the public are now in dire need. The demands on the resources of the fund have been enormously increased since the outbreak of war, and already over one-third of the total funds of the Society are overdrawn.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to Miss Myra Hess , C.B.E., [address removed].

A radio play by John Cheatle, faithfully transcribed from the detective story by Dorothy L. Sayers
With J. B. Rowe as Bunter, Bryan Powley as Dr. Hartman, Philip Wade as Brotherton, Gordon MacLeod as a Policeman, Audrey Cameron as a Scream
Production by John Cheatle
As her many thousands of readers know, Dorothy L. Sayers is a detective-story writer who invariably plays fair.
In The Footsteps that Ran, as in all her other ingenious stories, all clues to the identity of the murderer, the motive of the murderer, the weapon used, and the method of detection are suggested to the reader, - or, in this case, the listener - as soon as they are to the detective himself. A novel feature of this broadcast will be that at the very climax of the story, when all the clues are there, there will be a pause in the action to enable listeners to review the evidence and to see if they can succeed in solving the problem before Lord Peter Wimsey.
