A programme for children under five
Nursery rhymes, stories, and music
'Is she coming while they play the music?' ask some of our under-fives. 'They wonder,' writes the mother of a family of small listeners to one of our storytellers, 'they wonder where you go when you say goodbye - do you catch a bus or train or go in a car? David is drawing you a bus.' Many children speculate thus about their 'story ladies.' They are on the look-out, too, for evidence: 'We listen every day after you have said "Goodbye until tomorrow" for your shoes to walk away, but you must go very quietly because we never hear you.' And sometimes, as with Peter, evidence is found: 'Peter says you are walking away down the path, and he can sometimes hear the gate close.' What tale will their storyteller have told this week before, each day, she creeps away, shuts the gate and boards her bus, train, or car) Today, 'Johnny and his Rainbow Bubbles,' by Catherine Morris, and on the following days: 'The Little Train's Big Day,' by A.F. Clement, 'The Little Green Gate,' by Amy Smith, and two stories of Lulupet and Toffee, by Jane Alan

Last week Mr. Owen and Dr. Dale both agreed to David and Gwen marrying on Gwen's birthday. Mrs. Owen and Jenny arrived unexpectedly because Mr. Fulton offered to pay for Jenny's stage training. Mrs. Dale was annoyed because she didn't want Gwen to be worried by Jenny. However, Sally surprised everyone by saying Jenny could live with her in October. On her way from selling the dress she had bought to wear at the ball she was going to with Michael, Gwen met him. He annoyed her by his self-satisfied air and she told him what she had really felt about him. Michael was annoyed and waylaid David in an attempt to make
(Continued in next column) trouble, but his efforts were treated very casually by them both.

Esther McCracken tells her story
' Unstable Companion'
In the South, Esther McCracken is better known as a playwright than as a broadcaster, but her voice is familiar to listeners in the North as the introducer of ' Wot Cheor, Geordiel ' The title of her story leads one to think of horses, but, in fact, it is about a much smaller member of the animal kingdom.
