Talk by Edmund Hardy , lorry driver In peacetime one of the most hard-working sections of the community, and in wartime one of the most necessary, the lorry drivers command the thanks and respect of everyone. Edmund Hardy has been on the road since shortly after the last war when he started the job as a driver's mate-the way in which all real lorry drivers begin their careers. Although, as. he will tell you this morning, he soon learned how to drive a lorry, it took him a very long time to acquire that fine road-sense which is characteristic of the men whose vehicles are on the road twenty-four hours out of twenty-four.
Hardy will have plenty to say about the conditions of his work, the interesting folk he has met, experiences he has had, and the contrasting pleasures and difficulties of driving in peacetime and during war.

Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck (1562-1621) was one of the greatest Dutch organists of the early seventeenth century. He left a great number of compositions which were some years ago collected and published in a complete edition. But it is as a teacher that he is chiefly famous. At one time all the leading organists in Germany had been his pupils, and so widespread was his influence and so sound were his methods that even Bach, born over a hundred years later, could be said to have been indirectly a pupil of Sweelinck.
