Mr. C. E. HUDSON : 'The School Garden-IT,
3.0 ' LIFE AND WORK IN THE BRITISH ISLES'—
Mr. CLIFFORD COLLINSON : 'Covent Garden '
COVENT GARDEN was originally a convent garden, where a salad was cut for a lady abbess, and flowers wero gathered to adorn images.' There are plenty of flowers to bo found there today, but they no longer grow there. It is now the site of tho central London market for flowers, fruit and vegetables. Thus it remains true to the tradition of the garden by bringing all tho fragrance and colour of the countryside into the very heart of the drab metropolis. The long glass-roofed arcades are seen at their brightest and busiest in tho small hours of the morning on one of the official market days, but sightseers at such a time are tolerated rather than welcomed.

Professor JAMES RITCHIE , D.Sc. (Professor of Natural History in the University of Aberdeen): 'Sport and Commerce take a Hand in the Game '
EVEN the wild creatures of our countryside have their own alien problem. Professor
Ritchie deals here with various aspects of that problem. Some of the commonest species-the rabbit and the grey squirrel, for example— were first imported to these shores in the interests of commerce, but have rapidly turned into pests. The common brown rat, a by-product of commereo, is definitely an ' undesirable.' Other crpatures, such as the pheasant and the red-legged partridge, were imported and bred for sport, and have, so to speak, been allowed to take out papers of naturalization.
