Anxious that his son Jim should not be involved in anything to do with the war, Jeffrey has persuaded him not to enlist for that officers' course-at any rate for the time being.
Before going to Hollywood (where he is due to work on a film script), Jeffrey has taken his friend Minot Roberts into his confidence about Jim and Sally Sales , so that while he (Jeffrey) is away, Jim may have someone to talk to who will see his point of view, in a way that Madge doesn't. But Minot, unfortunately, seems more in accord with Madge on this subject, and Jeffrey regrets having mentioned the matter to him at all.
Marianna Miller is in Hollywood, and is to play the star role in the picture which Jeffrey is to work on there.

5-Science for a Purpose
(ii) Industrial Science
The work of the scientist in industry is characterised by great variety. He may be concerned with improving the efficiency of existing operations and with conserving the use of raw materials; he may also be engaged on research leading to the improvement of current products and the development of entirely new ones. Industrial research is carried out by British firms individually, or in co-operation. Research Associations, financially assisted by the Government, are as numerous as the industries they serve, and often provide the only scientific help and guidance available to small firms. These Lectures are being printed in "The Listener"
