From page 87 of ' When Two or Three '
Mr. Phillip Thornton
This Week Mr. Philip Thornton is to deal with the different types of music used by men in their ceremonies of state and war. There appear to be certain sounds that definitely inspire men with feelings of great love for their country; and other types of music that really do incite people to acts of violence. Mr. Thornton hopes to show you how, in different parts of the world, the same music appears to have the same function; even though the people who use it live hundreds of miles apart, they are thrilled by almost the same tunes.

Cricket in India
Mr. R. B. VAN WART, O.B.E.
THIS EVENING we are to hear all about cricket in India, and R. B. van Wart will contrast it with the game as played in England.
To bat in a topee with the glaring sun in your eyes can be far from pleasant, and chills and. fevers, hard ground, over-hospitable hosts are enough to ensure playing below one's form.
Van Wart , who has spent twenty years in India, was for part of that time guardian to the Rajah of Vizianagram, and as the Rajah's brother was a keen enthusiast, with the habit of inviting such English coaches as Hobbs and Sutcliffe out to India, Van Wart saw cricket at its best and worst out there.
Cricket, it appears, owes much to the Rajahs who, in their turn, have lent dazzling bats to English County Cricket.
Van Wart will tell some vivid and characteristic* stories, and the most enthusiastic advocate of Leg Theory would hardly like to stand up to body line bowling in the jungle where wild boars in the night have rooted up the pitch.

Miss ROSE MACAULAY
THE REVIEW of the past week will be broadcast tonight by Rose Macaulay , one of the wittiest of our novelists and essayists, whose ' John Milton ', published last year, has won her further renown. Since 1919 she has published almost a book a year, including ' Orphan Island ',' Keeping up Appearances ', and ' Staying with Relations ', all examples of her satire and caustic wit. In 1914 and 1919 she published two books of verse, and in 1925 a book of essays, ' A Casual Commentary '. A happy augury for her broadcast tonight.
