Professor HENRY CLAY : ' Combines and Trusts '
THIS is the second talk in Professor Henry Clay 's series on private industry and its adaptation to changing conditions. Combines and trusts have assumed a position of groat importance in modern industry. Originally, combinations were formed with the aim of securing monopolies ; but this does not usually happen, and the practice has been continued for the sake of the stability and security which it affords. In this aim they are associated with tariffs. Combines and trusts are found not only in industry, but also in agriculture and in commerce ; there is a growing tendency for prices to bo settled by a kind of collectivo bargaining between combinations. Combines can be extended beyond political boundaries by agreements or by the establishment of subsidiaries. Next week Professor Clay expounds the significance of joint-stock companies as an aspect of private enterprise.

WEATHER FORECAST, SECOND GENERAL
AS originally produced as a stage-play in 1930, B.J. One consists of three episodes, two of which took place in the War. The third and post-war episode is the one which is being presented tonight. Although it is complete by itself, the listener's enjoyment may be enhanced if ho knows the events of the two previous episodes. They are as follows. Sir Richard Wostley and Karl Malheim , the two chief characters in the play, have met twice before. Their first meeting was just before the War, when they were sub-lieutenants, one in the Kngltsh, the other in the German, navy. They made friends, discovering that each was the son of a prominent steel man. and that each had preferred to enter the fighting services rather than go into the family business. Their second meeting was in the Battle of Jutland. Westley was the navigator of a cruiser which picked up a boat-load of German survivors, amongst whom was
Malheim. Westley was deputed to extract from Malheim some essential information regarding the movements of the German fleet; but Malheim did his duty and refused to open his mouth. After the War, Westley. succeeded to his father's baronetcy and the business, and for eight years fought for principles of co-operation against the attitudes of conservatism (as represented in the play by Fletcher) and of apathy (Hardy) of his fellow steolmasters. He has been in correspondence with Malheim, who had' become the head of a big German steel combine, for Westley believes in rationalization followed by co-operation with Continental producers as the only possible policy for the British steel industry and his own firm. Hardy and Fletcher hear that Malheim is coming to Sheffield for a conference with Westley; they arrange to be present in order ' to keep control of the situation.' The third episode, tonight's radio play, opens at this conference. Malheim is expected at any moment.
