By a Pathologist,
D. STARK MURRAY , M.B., Ch.B.
Previous talks in this series have described the frenzied life of a news-reel cameraman, the arduous life of a coal-miner, and the athletic life of a professional footballer. But excitement and danger are by no means confined to such active jobs. A pathologist works within four walls, but at any moment he may have to make a decision on which the life of some patient in the hospital depends. And in making his tests he himself may run risks of serious infection. A germ may enter some small cut on his finger, and constant precautions have to be taken to guard against this danger.
This evening the Pathologist at the L.C.C. Group Laboratory, Archway Hospital, describes the many kinds of activities that make up his day's work.

Robert Franz was born at Ha!le within a week or two of the Battle of Waterloo, and died in 1892. He is considered one of the most important composers of German Lieder, and though his songs are sung today with less and less frequency, the listener will be able to trace in these often beautiful songs the germ of the more highly developed modern Lieder
Franz wrote over two hundred and fifty songs. Mendelssohn, as did Schumann, praised the early songs of Franz very warmly, but was not so nppreciative of the later ones, which he complained lacked melody. The charm of these songs lies not only in their unaffected simplicity and naive emotional content, but in their ingenious and imaginative workmanship.
Symphony in C J. C. Bach
1. Allegro con spirito; 2. Minuetto
Johann Christian Bach , one of the sons of the great Bach, lived most of his adult life in England and was known as ' The English Bach '. He was a musician of exceptional attainment and wrote a deal of music which more than holds its own with that of the period. Indeed, Mozart thought highly of his instrumental symphonies and studied them to very good purpose.
Mozart first came in association with Bach on his first visit to London in 1764. Bach took a great interest in this youngster of eight years old, and actually fixed up a concert for him in which they played a sonata together and a fugue, as a sort of double piano turn. Bach died in 1782 at the age of forty-six

Country Girls in London
An Appeal on behalf of THE CENTRAL COUNCIL FOR THE SOCIAL WELFARE OF GIRLS AND WOMEN IN LONDON, by the Rev. H. R. L. SHEPPARD , C.H., D.D.
Few realise how much of London's work is done by girls from the country. Many of them arrive without knowing anyone to whom they can turn for friendship or advice.
The Central Council (a Union of all societies concerned with girls in London) is there to help them. They have only to get in touch with the Central Information Bureau, a friendly little office in Victoria Street, and explain their needs or difficulties to be sure of sympathetic advice.
More than 10,000 girls from every part of England and Wales, Scotland and Ireland, have used this office; they have been told of clubs for their leisure, of safe lodgings within their means, sometimes of shelter in emergency, and have been helped with information and advice of every kind.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]
