Eric Linklater on Sir Thomas Urquhart's translation of Rabelais
No happier choice for 'Something to Read' could have been made by Major Eric Linklater than the famous seventeenth-century translation of Rabelais by that redoubtable Scot, Sir Thomas Urquhart of Cromarty. Linklater is himself a Scot - though his Orkney Island forbears are of Viking origin - and his eminence as a writer both on Scottish and on other subjects makes him well qualified to discuss what has been described as 'one of the most perfect transfusions of an author from one language into another that ever man accomplished'.
Although he is now in the Army, Eric Linklater continues to delight his public with the work of his accomplished pen. He recently published two pamphlets, 'Northern Garrison' and 'The Defence of Calais', and he was largely responsible for the writing of the recent documentary radio programme that dealt with the latter subject.

' The Regional Centre ' : Raymond Greene and George W. Cadbury
It is obviously impossible to provide the small locul community with advantages all its own, such as hospitals, museums, public libraries, universities, and so on. Such cultural, social, and hygienic amenities may be provided in a planned regionalcentretoservealarge area round and about it. The need for the more obvious amenities will be reviewed, and suggestions for others will be considered in terms of human advantage and public expenditure.
