A programme for children under five
Nursery rhymes, stories, and muslic
As our repertoire of stories grows, so does the number of favourites which our under-fives want to hear again, and the task of fitting these requests into our programmes becomes increasingly difficult. There are always some eager listeners who have to be disappointed. However, an occasional complete week of repeating stories helps to solve our problem, and that is our plan for this week. Today brings ' The Cookie Bun ' by Jane Shaw and, tomorrow, Margaret Gore 's story of the Teddy Bear and the treacle tarts. After Wednesday's story, ' The Little Nurse ' by E. MaHett , a certain little girl will probably get busy again taking temperatures with a pencil, which instrument she calls a 'vomiter.'
On Thursday comes the story of Tim and his horte White Star, by Ruth Simonis , and on Friday the one by Ruth Ainsworth about the black doll called Dinah, which, while enjoyed by many children, brought special delight to one little girl. 'You see,' writes her mother, ' Father Christmas brought a black dolly named Dinah, the exact image of your heroine. It was the greatest thrill ever to witness the pleasure on jane's face as Dinah's descnption was unfolded. Her joy was absolutely complete.' Elizabeth A. Taylor
Introduced by Mary Hill and including
' Her Life with the Lions': Ray Walker , a woman lion-tamer, is interviewed in the series ' My Job.'

The American Cabinet depends on the support of the President but the British Cabinet on the support of Parliament. E. A. Helms of the State University of Ohio, U.S.A., and K. C. Boswell of the Royal Military Academy. Sandhurst, show how this difference is the result of different political thinking in the two countries

Last week Mrs. Dale recovered from the 'flu. Mrs. Morgan then had it. Stan Skeats' mother came to help Mrs. Dale. She was very cheery and nothing was too much trouble. Mrs. Morgan walked into the hall while Mrs. Freeman was on the telephone to Sally and telling her how much they appreciated Mrs. Skeats.
