A Short-wave Relay of what Morning Listeners in America are hearing this
The great feature of this series, of which this is the third relay, is that British listeners will not be hearing something specially devised to suit English tastes ; they will be hearing how the National Broadcasting Company of America entertains Americans. You will be hearing what morning listeners are hearing in the States, and-more than that-you will be hearing the type of broadcast they were hearing yesterday and will hear tomorrow. You are in America, as it were, having a peep, or rather a listen; you are one of the crowd.
Though full details of the programme have not come to hand at the time of going to press, it will include star radio vocalists, the Revellers (Male Voice) Quartet, and, once again, the N.B.C. Orchestra under Frank Black , presenting this season's song hits.

'The Decline of Amateur Football'
F. N. S. CREEK
Nowadays the best amateur team doesn't get very far in the Cup-Ties. And yet in the first ten years of the competition amateur teams swept the board ; though Eton specialises in a game of its own, Old Etonians twice won the F.A. Cup.
It seems probable that the gap will never be bridged. The amateur works five days in an office, the professional is trained like a racehorse. But Mr. F. N. S. Creek would bridge the gap if he could. Can the standard of amateur play be brought nearer to the standard of professional ? Are the schools to blame ? More than half the players in last term's inter-Varsity match came from nine public schools who specialise in soccer.
But Mr. Creek will have a few words to say to the big grammar schools that in the last ten years have gone over to Rugger. He takes off his cap--one of the many he was won-to the elementary schools, for it is they who keep the flag flying. (And incidentally turn out the future professional player.) And he pins his hopes to the new Secretary of the Football Association, Mr. S. F. Rous , a schoolmaster and famous referee, who has already put up a scheme for providing expert coaching for those secondary schools who care to ask for it.
Mr. Creek has played football in fourteen different countries and will say something of conditions on the Continent. He is a Cambridge Blue, has played in six- amateur Internationals, and in an International against France. He has written ' A History of the Corinthian Football Club ', has scored over 100 goals for the Corinthians, and played in nearly every Corinthian Cup-Tie match between 1923 and this season.
