BERNARD DARWIN : The New Amateur
Relayed from the Club House, Prestwick, Ayrshire
THE SPEAKER tonight has been in the front flight of amateur golfers for the last thirty years. He has twice reached the semi-final of the Amateur Cham-pionship, has represented England in eight International matches, and Britain v. America at Long Island, in 1922. Among his trophies are the Don Memorial Cup, won on three occasions ; the Gold Vase, 1919 ; and the President's Putter of Oxford and Cambridge Golfing Society, 1924.
He has just had the honour of being made captain elect of the Royal and Ancient Club of St. Andrews, and is to drive himself into office at the next autumn medal in September. He will rank among the very few Englishmen, who have been captain of the first golf club in the world to receive the designation ' Royal ', King William the Fourth bestowing the honour.
Mr. Bernard Darwin is a well-known writer on golf, and also a well-known broadcaster; it will be remembered that he gave eye-witness accounts of the play in the Walker Cup. He was one of the selectors of the British team.

Under the direction of KNEALE KELLEY
JOHN OLIVERE and Morey Wicks formed a partnership as recently as last October, and have already been a success in variety, cabaret, concerts, and on the air.
Muriel George started in ' The
Follies ', and was the original singer of 'My Moon'. She was also the original Ilka in Night Bird in England. She sang ' somewhere in France ' during the War, and charmed not only Tommies. For one day while she was singing in a big army hut a bird flew in at one of the windows to listen, and a rabbit came out from under the stage and did the same. This is her first appearance as a solo act in front of the microphone.
A young man going from job to job till he finds one that suits him may gather no moss, but he gathers what is better-experience. Donald Peers ran away from school, travelled the country with a squad of journeyman painters, sailed to the Persian Gulf as a mess-room steward on a British tanker, got tired of the sea, and engaged in dock work at Lowestoft. There a concert party engaged him, and changed the tenor of his life.
Billy Bennett , who is Mose, has appeared in four Command Performances. He appeared with Alexander in 1931, and by himself in 1926, last year, and again this year.

UP TO Now we have been hearing from the unemployed themselves what a curse ' time to spare ' is; tonight we are to hear what can be done to make the best of it. For time may be made to pass quickly and usefully until permanent work can be found for at least some of those who are now without it.
Lincoln has certainly been foremost in the way of organising social work, and the Lincoln People's Service Club runs clubs for carpentry, metal-work, boot - repairing, and so forth. The work is entirely voluntary, and the spirit communal.
It must not be forgotten that other towns have their clubs and organisations, and have done splendid work, nor must it be overlooked that there are towns that have the will but not the money to run them. It is the intention to bring an unemployed man to the microphone to explain just what one of these clubs can mean to one of those who is in enforced idleness.
