Reader, Charles E. Stidwill
The author, a canon of St. Paul's and Oxford professor who died in 1918, dreamed that the haunting magic of Yeats's lines held a test by which life was to be proved. What would happen if they were abruptly proclaimed at a stuffy committee meeting, at comfortable Matins, in the Mansion House, at the Kaffir Market, a St. James's club, a Hyde Park drawing-room?

Appeal on behalf of the Forces Help Society and Lord Roberts Workshops, by Sir Michael Red grave, C.B.E.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to Sir Michael Redgrave, [address removed]
This is the diamond jubilee year of the Forces Help Society and Lord Roberts Workshops, whose work has benefited almost four million serving and ex-Service men and women. In the Lord Roberts Workshops, men of three wars with an average disability of sixty per cent are trained and employed to produce furniture of all kinds, bedding, basket-work, and brushes, while the more severely disabled are taught clock assembly and other light industries.
The Society also has other centres, for the aged. the disabled, and the convalescent. Funds are urgently needed to carry on and expand this work.

Adapted for radio in twelve episodes by H. Oldfield Box
Produced by David H. Godfrey and Bryan Izzard
By delegating the task to a brother clergyman, the Rev. Josiah Crawley, the Dowager Lady Lufton has put an end to Mark Robarts's exploits in the hunting field. But her interference in the friendship between her son Lord Lufton and Mark's sister Lucy has proved ill-judged. Lord Lufton, on the eve of his departure for London, has made Lucy an offer of marriage; though, indeed, Lucy has refused him, forcing herself to declare that she can never love him.
Mark's involvements with Sowerby, in the matter of the bills, are daily becoming more alarming.
