Four talks by John Waterhouse Ph.D. ,
Reader in Medical Statistics
In the University of Birmingham 2-Heredity and Individuality
The science of human genetics is relatively new and the workers in it few, and there are many questions frequently asked by the layman to which the geneticist can give no answer. However, in these talks Dr. Waterhouse attempts to set out, in relation to the ordinary person's interest, something of what is known about human heredity.
In his second talk he describes the mechanism of human heredity, and gives some examples of the inheritance of normal and abnormal characters.

Arthur Marshall chooses Blodwen Parkes
Blodwen Parkes : the leader of the school smart set; puffing away at gaspers in the boot-room; cheating in exams; purloining Mademoiselle's best perfume; funking at lacrosse; setting fire to the chapel ... she is in fact a composite character, the archetype of all the villuinesses of schoolgirl literature. Her behaviour is quite, quite horrid; but horrid in such a wholehearted and fascinating way that over the years, Arthur Marshall confesses, he has developed more than a soft spot for her.
