Professor JAMES RITCHIE , D.Sc. (Professor
- of Natural History in the University of Aberdeen): 'Yesterday's Creatures: Going and Gone'
THIS is the second in a series of talks which sets out to describe some of the everyday facts of natural history and to interest listeners in the urgent practical problems which arise from man's ' civilised interference ' with wild life. For example, there is the extermination in the past of entire species of animals at the hands of mankind. But that is a process that is by no means the monopoly of the history books. Our own day sees the same forces still at work in the effort of man to be for ever reshaping nature to his own ends. In this talk Professor Ritchie will tell listeners something of those changes which are occurring almost in front of their own eyes. The present generation may indeed see the last of many of the most interesting wild creatures-in Great Britain, at least. All these talks, by the way, will be built on common facts, such as may be observed by anyone who .uses his eyes in walking in the country or by the sea. They have been ananged more particularly to meet the wishes of country-dwelling listeners. Townsmen, however, especially if they are nature lovers, will find them no less interesting or valuable on that account.

N 0 regular visitor to the microphone can count upon a warmer welcome from the general body of listeners than Mr. Gerald Barry , Editor of The Week-End Review. His clear, scholarly views on various public affairs, no less than the equally clear manner in which they are presented, and his happy gift of ' the personal touch ' in broadcasting, have long been a source of pleasure to thousands.

THE SPENCER DYKE STRING
QUARTET: SPENCER DYKE (Violin); TATE GILDER
(Violin); BERNARD SHORE (Viola);
CEDRIC SHARPE (Violoncello) yAUGHAN WILLIAMS has composed but little chamber music and only one string quartet. This was written in '1909, and, characteristically, remained in manuscript for twelve years before it was revised and published. Vaughan Williams had, just before the composition of the quartet, been in Paris, studying with Maurice. Ravel, a man a year or two younger than the Englishman, but with perhaps a more clarified technique, and it is said that the influence of Ravel on Vaughan Williams is shown here and there in the quartet. That is a narrow and erroneous assumption. The rank of Vaughan Williams in England is as high as that of Ravel in France and if either learned from the other, why, so did Haydn and Mozart. ' It was from Haydn,' said Mozart, 'that I first learned the true way to compose quartets.' In the matter of the relations of great men, high and established precedent is very often a complete answer.
