THE MARCHroNESs OF READING
THIS IS THE first broadcast of a new series of talks, or reflections, on life and men and affairs, on women and homes and happiness, on obligations. Individuality of view, the experience that comes from being alive and noticing (for one can be alive and notice nothing) will colour Lady Reading's talks at the microphone. She has been everywhere, done everything, seen everything. From 1921 to 1926, she was in India on the Viceregal Staff of the Marquis of Reading, whom she married in 1931. But Lady Reading is speaking not only as the wife of a famous man, but as a woman who is Chairman of the Personal Service League. She is working actively every day for the unemployed, controlling the collecting, remaking, and distributing of clothes for those in dire need of them. Her wit has sympathy behind it; her opinions carry weight; she puts precept into practice.

The Navy Yesterday and Today
The Navy Before the Great War (B) in Peace
Admiral Sir HERBERT W. RICHMOND,
THIS EVENING'S TALK will deal with the Navy before the Great War-in peace. Admiral Sir Herbert W. Richmond will survey the whole question of what the Navy had to do, the purpose it served by way of police and public duties. He will deal with the growth and development of the Navy from the time of Waterloo; the invention of the ironclad, and of the submarine ; the reason for the Two-power Standard and its meaning ; the rise and menace of the German Navy, and the effect it had on the size and cost of our own. In this way he will prepare the ground for his next broadcast on January 24, on the Navy in and after the Great War.
