Talk by T. MacLachlan
This afternoon's speaker has well merited his Scottish distinction of a ' lad o' pairts '. T. MacLachlan is a stone-mason who served his time in the Orkneys, though he is now carrying on his trade in the North of England. Apart from his regular job he is something of a writer, and has contributec" to a number of the best journals. He has a keen and observant eye, and in his talk today he will recall life in the Orkneys as it was thirty or forty years ago, when communications were difficult, trading often a matter of barter, and the life of the community rigorously conditioned by its island circumstances.

Ted (the steward):
(soprano), sings a programme of Russian songs
This evening's recital is notable for the fact that the four songs by Taneiev have never been sung in -this country before. Taneiev, a famous Russian pianist and composer who was born in 1856 and died in 1915, resembled Brahms not only in outward appearance but in his attitude towards his art. He has been called the Dr. Johnson of Russian music, for he bludgeoned the modernists with great gusto and humour.
' Planning the Countryside ' : Flora, Mrs. MacLeod of MacLeod, Joseph F. Duncan , Secretary, Scottish Farm Servants' Union, and John Cadbury
Vast changes have occurred in the countryside since the war, and even greater ones should be looked for in the' after-war years. Problems facing the authorities will be to reconcile the competing claims of agriculture, development, and recreation. The rural community itself will undoubtedly be transformed, and the townsman on holiday will probably call for freer access to mountain land, and for expertly organised facilities when taking his country or seaside holiday.
