'Health Facilities for Young People ' By the Secretary, Board of Education
Juvenile Organisations' Committee
Up to the age of fourteen a child's Parents are in touch with the Health Services available for children, first through the Infant Welfare Centres, and then through the schools. But after this age, until the boy or girl comes under the Health Insurance scheme, it all becomes rather vague and difficult. Yet facilities are there if Parents know about them and how to make use of them.
This morning the Secretary of the Board of Education Juvenile Organisation Committee, which was formed to advise the President of the Board of Education in general on young persons, will tell parents of facilities of which they can make use if they are concerned about the health of their children between the ages of fourteen and sixteen. This talk will be followed up by talks by doctors about health.

Alfred Wall 's first String Quartet gained the Carnegie Award in 1921, and it was summed up by the judges as ' work rich in colour and varied in expression '. In style AKred Wall's music, though modern in outlook, shows no traces of extreme modern influences.

Mr. T. Hay , Superintendent of the Royal Parks, 'is fast becoming a well-known broadcaster, and this evening Mr. C. H. Middleton is to bring him to the microphone to talk about summer beds and borders.
In the parks, in large gardens, and often in comparatively small ones, are to be seen lovely colour schemes year after year, and though the average listener has not glasshouses to draw bn, perennial plants, biennials, and annuals may be grown by all.
There are questions of planting and of sowing to be considered. Are you for orange shading to red ? Are you for purple shading to blue ? Colours matter. Just as it is important to place the little flower that grows a few inches high in front of your Sweet Williams and Canterbury Bells, and these again in front of plants that grow considerably taller.
Arrangements of all kinds to give a display through the summer months will be discussed by Mr. T. Hay this evening, and professional gardeners as well as amateurs would do well to listen.

Landen (Praise ye God, all men, adore Him !)
Looloo Martin owns the Sailors' Coffee House on the dockside at Plymouth and, refreshingly, falls in love with a plain A. B.-but a sailor of course with a girl in every port. The dream of his life is to own a cargo boat, and she sells a family heirloom to make his dream come true. But he will not marry a girl with money, and goes off to sea.
Looloo's pursuit of him provides the lively plot, which reaches its comedy climax when she persuades the captain of a battle-cruiser to give a party and invite every Smith on his personnel.
This is Hit the Deck's first radio production. It is little changed from the stage version, as played at the London Hippodrome in 1927, except for necessary cuts. There are at least three fine numbers : ' Join the Navy ', Bill ; ' Sometimes I'm Happy ', Looloo and ' Hallelujah ', Magnolia, Looloo's old coloured servant, played by Betty Bolton of Chariot shows fame.
'Hit the Deck' was broadcast in the Regional Programme on Thursday night
