Our listeners have another friend Charles
-8 boy, and the possessor of a ' useful bag.' One question comes up to puzzle him-' Who is Mr. Moon? '—and we will leave it to puzzle our under-fives, also, until Wednesday and Thursday when they will hear all about him from Daphne Oxenford, in the stories "by Ruth Ains worth.
On Friday Dorothy Smith will tell us more about the little fir tree we heard of two weeks ago in the story by J. K.
