KENSINGTON Moir : ' Motor Racing from the Pit Manager's Point of View '
Up to now all the speakers on motor r: cing have been well-known drivers, such as Sir Malcolm Campbell , S. C. H. Davis , Earl Howe. But this evening listeners are to have a new angle on the sport; they are to hear what it is like to be waiting in the pit of a racing track for the next casualty whilst a race is going on. The suspense is terrific, and when the manager and his mechanics are called on they have to work against time to save a race just as a surgeon must to save a life during an operation. One thinks of the leisurely remedy applied to an ordinary breakdown on the road. But the breakdown to be adjusted during * race, the car to be refuelled, the tyre to be changed-these things must be done in seconds.
Mr. Kensington Moir has been in charge of pits at Brooklands and on all the big tracks in Europe.

Canada's most successful broadcasters.
Have you heard about Clapham's dog ? It slipped its collar one day whilst he was working out some business on the way to St. George's Hall, and he walked in trailing a lead with no dog attached to it. Dwyer found it in the kitchen at Broadcasting House.
Charles Austin , of' Parker P.C.' fame, is to give his first broadcast since he was Chairman of Old-time Music Halls, and Phyllis Robins her first in a Variety programme since Radiolympia. A. C. Astor was the first ventriloquist on the air.
