In this series, that is being given on the last Sunday of each month, the four corners of the world are to be described to listeners by travellers who have visited them.
This evening Mr. Leonard Bullen will start off with a picture of Honolulu, with its heterogeneous crowds, stately buildings and tropical flowering trees, warm-scented breezes and lovely countryside.
Next, listeners are to be transported in imagination to the West Indies to take part in an alligator hunt with Mr. Percy Howe. Boots off, and absolute quiet, please ! Only an hour before the moon rises. Mr. Howe attaches a spot-light to his forehead, switches on, and glides silently out into the mangrove swamp.
Then Mr. Ceredig Richards is to tell listeners of Morocco, of an adventure in the desert, and of sheikhs as they are and not as they might be.
Then on to Australia with Miss Leonora Gregory , to a pool in the Grampian mountains. A vivid talk, with the feel of plunging into cool pools, the colour of amber.
Next, a native village in the heart of Africa. Here the Luimbi people worship spirits, and Mr. Cecil Scott holds converse with a ' native over a camp fire.
When Mr. Scott goes back he will take with him the first book they have ever seen-his translation of the Gospel of St. Mark into the Luimbi language.
Lastly, listeners are to be taken by Mr. Charles J. McGuinness to a very different country.

An Appeal on behalf ot
THE NATIONAL BIRTHDAY TRUST FUND
FOR EXTENSION OF MATERNITY
By Mrs. STANLEY BALDWIN
The main objects of the National Birthday Trust Fund (for extension of maternity services) are to finance the extension of voluntary maternity hospitais and training centres for midwives, to improve the emoluments and status of midwives, to enable hospitals and other institutions to administer anaesthetics, and to do everything humanly possible to reduce the terrible toll of mortality in childbirth.
Among the fine things the Fund has done in the last year or two is the experiment undertaken in the Rhondda Valley (a district with one of the highest maternal mortality rates in the country). Here, in co-operation with the Local Authorities, it has been possible to arrange services of all kinds and extra nourishment for expectant mothers.
Over 3,000 mothers die in childbirth every year in England and Wales, and it is said that half of these deaths are preventable.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]

Tom Jones , produced at the Apollo Theatre in 1907, has been performed by more operatic societies than it would be easy to count. Graceful, melodious, light, the music is in every way original, stamped with a strong individuality; a]ways refined, laid out for the orchestra by the hand of the master, it is all respected and admired by musicians as it is loved by the man in the street.
