Capt. GEOFFREY CRAWSHAY : 'Tne World Today'
THE first talk in a series designed fof the industrial worker who has been temporarily displaced, and is finding it difficult to get a job to which he is suited. A number of social experiments carried out with a view to better industrial organization will be described by the people who are running them, covering things of such practical everyday importance as Attempts to Meet Unemployment, Choosing the Right Job, and Means to Security. Captain Geoffrey Crawshay , already well known to listeners as a gardening expert, introduces the series today.
