At the end of this term Ann Driver completes a year's broadcasting, and it was realised months ago that she was a broadcast' find '. Recently the students at a London Training College attended a nursery school during one of her broadcasts, and wrote essays on what they had observed.
' She anticipated the movements of the children so well that she might have been watching them'... ' Walking; running, skipping, all done to music ' The mood of the music was beautifully arranged. They enjoyed the imaginative work and seemed to grasp everything ' .... ' They really enjoyed it '.

' Tropical Timbers from Siam'
Captain F. McDERMOTT
This series goes on, never losing in interest or in usefulness of purpose. Schools learn from it not only the important product of a particular place, but all about that place. Something of its scenery, climate, fauna, flora, its native people and their customs.
Today, Captain F. McDermott is to tell them about the long journey-sometimes lasting for five years-of a log from the tropical forests of Siam many hundreds of miles through forests, clearings, rivers, and towns to the timber yards where it is kept before being shipped to other ports, or for building.
Captain McDermott will describe a stroll through a tropical forest, and tell you about trees so hard that they will blunt a chisel, and trees so soft that they are nothing but dust. He will talk about the value of teak and other tropical hard woods ; about the white ant, the enemy of man ; about elephants that think, and white elephants that are not white.

This evening Mr. C. H. Middleton :s to come alone to the microphone to give one of his welcome seasonal talks. In the flower garden, though the May-flowering tulips and Darwins have yet to bloom, there is much to be done to prepare for summer.
As to young plants, there are still frosts about, and it is the month when slugs, unless severely dealt with, are far more remorseless enemies. There are annuals to be thinned out. There are massing armies of aphides to be syringed off the rose trees ... then, in the kitchen garden, there are caterpillars to be picked from currant and gooseberry bushes, salads to be sown, and marrow beds to be prepared.
Flower garden, vegetable garden, orchard, cold frame, glasshouse all call for attention, and Mr. Middleton has prepared for listeners a number of invaluable reminders for May.
