'Coconuts in Malaya'
British Malaya is one of the most beautiful countries in the world. Sunshine, clear air and gorgeous colouring make a magic in Malaya, and so fertile is the earth there that when tickled it laughs itself into a harvest. Throughout the Malay Peninsula are the graceful coconut palms, for wherever a Malay settles he plants coconuts. Coconut palms date the birth of his children, besides supplying food, drink, fuel, and most other necessities of life. And in addition to the uses made of it by the inhabitants, coconut produce in the form of copra, coir, and coconut oil enters very largely into world commerce.
This morning Mr. Edward Jago , who was an administrative officer in many parts of Malaya for twelve years, and is now Deputy Agent for Malaya in London, will describe the harvesting methods employed by the natives.

When in 1904 that strange, half-crazy genius Scriabin abandoned his wife for Tatyana Schlozer (exactly reproducing the Wagner-Minna-Cosima situation), he had just begun to interest himself in theosophy. With Tatyana he went to the Riviera, and the great orchestral work begun in the garden of his villa looking out over the Mediterranean, vividly reflects the semi-mystical, semi-erotic current of his thoughts.
Like Scriabin's other orchestral works, the ' Poem of Ecstasy ' was first sketched out as a piano composition. Amusingly enough, the only piano available was a decrepit, out-of-tune instrument hired from a café nearby.

A host of listeners will welcome Mr. Desmond MacCarthy back to the microphone to talk on ' Books in General '. He gave these talks in the spring and summer of last year, and six talks in the cries in 1930. From October, 1931, to July, 1932, he spoke regularly on ' New Books '.
Mr. MacCarthy's last broadcast in this direction was on Charles Lamb at the end of last year, but he has been broadcasting on books, and authors of books, and characters in books, on and off since 1926. No subject under this head comes amiss to him-Thomas Hardy, Samuel Butler , Rossetti, ' Dr. Watson '.
He is of course just as much at home in the theatre, and gave the .talks on the theatre in the autumn of last year. Many listeners will remember his-delightful talk on Henry Arthur Jones.
J. A. SCOTT WATSON
(Professor of Rural Economy,
University of Oxford)
Many who listen to this, the first of Professor Scott Watson 's talks in this series, will remember his ' Rural Britain Today and Tomorrow' which he broadcast in weekly talks in the autumn of 1933. These talks on Rural Britain revealed Professor Scott Watson as a man not only with a wide knowledge of farming, but with a warm sympathy with farmers and farm workers and everything pertaining to the land.
As a young man he studied under
Professor Robert Wallace at Edinburgh University and took a degree in Agriculture. He studied for a year at the Royal Agricultural College, Berlin, and for a year in the States, at Iowa State College of Agriculture.
But he is more than a farmer in theory, he is a farmer in practice, managing, on behalf of St. John's College, Oxford, an arable farm of 480 acres at Long Wittenham, where he specialises in mechanised corn growing, pigs, and sheep.
This evening Professor Scott Watson v. ill deal with Spring fertiliser problems -the manuring of potatoes, sugar beet, roots and kale, and the spring treatment of wheat. He will also touch on some of the general problems of manuring, such as the use of the new concentrated fertilisers and the value of organic manures.
