Trooping the Colour on the Horse Guards Parade including a commentary by Major
J. B. S. BOURNE-MAY (Late Coldstream Guards)
The Ceremony opens with the arrival of the Royal Procession and The Royal Salute.
H.M. THE KING inspects the troops, after which the massed bands and drums of the Brigade of Guards play a slow march, countermarch, halt, and play a quick march
A Drummer beats, the Drummers' Call, and the escort marches up to the Colour, the bands and drums playing the ' British Grenadiers'. The Sergeant Major receives the Colour and hands it to the Ensign for the Colour. The escort salutes the Colour by presenting arms, the bands and drums playing 'God Save the King'.
Colour and escort march down the line of Guards, and the whole Parade marches past H.M. THE KING in slow time, and again in quick time, and finally forms up in line and gives the Royal Salute.
The Household Cavalry marches off. H.M. The KING places himself at the head of the King's Guard and the Guards march off to Buckingham Palace headed by the Massed Bands, Drums, and Pipes.

he Practice and Science of Gardening'—5
4 Vegetable Plots in June'
F. W. COSTIN
This afternoon Mr. F. W. Costin, who gives the practical talks as opposed to the science talks in this series, is to describe summer sowing and planting. He will deal with the succession and rotation of crops ; that is to say, one crop following on another to be gathered when ready ; and he will discuss inter-cropping ; that is to say, a quick crop growing with a slow crop on the same plot of ground. For instance, onions between leeks, lettuces between parsnips, radishes between anything.
He will say something about the cross-rod and tying method of staking runner beans, and tell you how not to stake peas with the hazel boughs leaning inwards ; and how the small shoots will require small twigs to give them a start. He will advise you to make a plan of your vegetable plot showing the present cropping, and another showing the crop that is to follow; and to keep a record of the crops that flourish on your particular soil, and of the crops that fail.
Finally, Mr. Costin will tell you about surface dressings, watering, and the application of manure.
' Marco Polo '
Last week, you will remember, Professor Eileen Power introduced Marco Polo into her talk on the Empire on Horseback, and today Rhoda Power is to re-create him in another of her famous dramatic interludes.
This little play will be given in two scenes. The first is set in the Palace of Kublai Khan , who, as you will remember, was the great Mongol Emperor of China from 1260 to 1294. You are to hear and visualise, if not to see, Kublai Khan receiving the celebrated Venetian travellers, Marco Polo and Jiis father and uncle, on their arrival in China.
The second scene takes place in the year 1295, in a Venetian merchant's house, where a little boy is telling his grandfather about the return of the Polos to Venice after their long visit to China, and about how they were received.

In today's talk Alan Best is to discuss the balance of power in the animal, vegetable, and insect world, all of them to a great extent interdependent for their very existence, and yet acting as a check on each other should one of the three grow too powerful. He will give examples, and at the same time show how nature's balance may be upset by the introduction of some foreign species. For instance, the American grey squirrel and the musk-rat into Britain.
Alan Best is a young sculptor who is also a keen student of natural history. Born in the West of Canada, he spent two years working and studying in the Museum of Natural History in New-York while still in his 'teens. From New York he went to Paris to study sculpture, but spent his summers on the Faroe Islands or visited Stockholm pursuing bis hobby-the study of the habits of birds. Birds of prey have always particularly interested him.

One of the most beautiful examples of Elgar's art is the ' Enigma ' Variations, which perhaps more than any other of his works has been the means of spreading his fame abroad. The title ' enigma ' refers to ' another and larger ' theme (presumably a well-known tune) which if played in conjunction with the present theme and the subsequent variations, fits perfectly.
These variations are dedicated ' To my friends pictured within and consequently each variation is prefaced with the initial or nickname of the friend ' pictured Referring to this novel idea. Elgar said : ' It is true that I sketched for their amusement and mine the idiosyncrasies of fourteen of my friends, not necessarily musicians, but th'is is a personal matter, and need not have been mentioned publicly ; the Variations should stand simply as a " piece " of music '.
