A programme for children under five
Nursery rhymes,' stories, and music
Trains! — magic word for our under-fives! We have. broadly speaking, two kinds of train stories. One kind is fantastic, in which the engine becomes a person and with whom the listeners can identify themselves. The other is realistic, which satisfies their love of watching and of travelling in trains. 'The London Express,' by Monica Jarrett , is a story of this kind which some of our listeners will have heard before and which will be broadcast again, tomorrow and on Wednesday. Friday's story, too—'Timothy and Sambo' by Hiida Rostron-is realistic, and very domestic. It tells how a goiliwog was made. But today's story, ' The Runaway Apple ' by G. A. Hanley , is fantasy; so, too, is Thursday's tale, ' Mousie ' by Elizabeth Graham , about Rosalind who had an imaginary mouse for a p'aymate. How close this story came to at least one child's own experience we heard after it was last broadcast. 'My little girt,' wrote a mother, ' is called Rosalind, and since she was two has lived with an imaginary mouse. He has been everywhere with us, and Rosalind leads him with fond words —" Come on Dizzy, where are you? " and a tug of the string that isn't there.'

Dr. Dale was called out to Mrs. Fos!er, who was expecting a baby. He still had not returned in the morning and Gwen and Mrs. Da e were getting very anxious. When everyone was nearly ready for the wedding Dr. Dale arrived, just in time to get changed and take Gwen to the church.
