A mother once wondered what the volume of noise would be if we could hear the collective ' Yes ' that issued each day from our young audience in answer to 'Are you sitting comfortably? ' The sound would certainly be impressive, though mingled with its general affirmative we might detect an occasional ' No, but I shall be in a minute,' or ' am, but granny hasn't got her cup of tea yet.' We should certainly hear the protest of one small boy who tells the lady every day that he is lying on daddy's bed.' But whatever the reply, there is not much doubt that all those listeners who are old enough to understand and enjoy th: stories, are always eager for I the lady ' to begin. Today, on Wednesday, and on Friday Daphne Oxenford will tell them respectively Ruth Borchard's story about Inga's birthday presents, Ursula Hourihane's ' The Old Toymaker,' and MarRaret Gore's Story about a Teddy Bear.'

Oscar Rabin and his Band
Script by Lesley Wilson
Last week Mrs. Freeman, Sally, and Mrs. Dale, with the help of Alec, took the baby's cot, which Mrs. Freeman had bought with her prize money, to Gwen. They noticed Alec seemed to be evasive about his business. Gwen asked David to come with her to buy a pair of low-heeled shoes. To their amazement, the salesman was Alec. He asked them to keep it a secret from the family. Mrs. Owen. staying at Virginia Lodge, had lunch with Richard Fulton. She accidentally told him Gwen was expecting a baby. As they had arranged, Dr. Dale went to Sandbourne with Bob and Mrs. Dale to Gimlet Green with Sally. When Mrs. Dale and Sally arrived they found the cottage deserted. Sally drove over to see what had happened to Zenobia. On the way she swerved her car to avoid the Rev. Francis Austen, who was riding his bicycle, and hit a gatepost. Although the car was damaged, Sally suffered only slight shock and the doctor advised her to rest for a few days. Zenobia was ill in bed, so Mrs. Dale's week-end of rest turned out to be quite the opposite.
