C. D. FORDE , Ph.D., F.R.G.S. (Professor of Geography and Anthropology in the University of Wales)
Today Dr. C. D. Forde , who is Professor of Geography and Anthropology in the University of Wales, is to talk about the Colorado plateaux in the American South-West, and the Indians who live there. He will describe the head waters of the Colorado river; the mesas, canyons, arrayos, and high mountain ranges in which the Grand and Green rivers rise. And he will speak of the vagaries of the climate varying from summer storms to light winter snows, and of varieties of vegetation ranging from sage bush to pine forests.
The Navajo shepherd horsemen are descended from the aboriginal hunters and learnt stock-raising from the Spaniards. Schools will hear ot their scattered settlements and seasonal migrations ; of the assemblies of clans and tribes in winter and summer. Difficulties of travel ; Spanish influence in their dress and horse trappings ; their small corn patches and sheep markets ; their superstitions and ceremonial chants will all be dealt with in this interesting talk.

' Watching the Movement of Plants '
Unless plants are watched fairly closely, they seem to move very little, though actually they move a great deal. At this time of the year, in fact, many of them are in almost constant movement and the changes through which they pass during the day can be observed by anyone who will watch them in the same way as he might watch the hands of a clock.
In spite of the relative slowness of their movements, however, the plants are highly responsive. Light, shadow, warmth, moisture, touch, and even wireless waves will cause almost immediate changes in their behaviour. !n his talk today, Mr. Richard Morse will describe some of these interesting changes, and will tell you how you can observe them for yourself in any field or garden.

W. G. DE BURGH, Ph.D.
This evening this series enters on its second half, and the remaining three talks, to be given by Dr. W. G. de Burgh , late Professor of Philosophy in the University of Reading, will discuss the moral influences that seem to spring up within ourselves and make men wish to do right.
. In this first talk Dr. de Burgh will show how the moral life implies human persons with reason and freedom, capable of knowing the world around them and of acting in it. He will argue that our circumstances are not unalterable, but rather opportunities for the display of character.

12—THE TROCADERO AND THE SOUTH LONDON

Conductor, STANFORD ROBINSON
Mr. Willson Disher has supplied us with the following note on these halls.
THE TROCADERO: After the French captured the fortress of Trocadero at Cadiz in 1823, they called a palace after it on the Seine. That building became famous during the Paris exhibition of 1878, when its name was borrowed for a brand-new ' palace of variety' in Great Windmill Street, London. ' The Trocadero Palace, the Eden Theatre of London (late Argyll Rooms)' became the Trocadero Music-Hall where two midgets, Herr Shafer and Fraulein Wergen , gave their ' refined musical entertainment' in 1890. It was next known as the Royal Trocadero, famous for its quick-running bills of twenty-two turns headed by such stars as Sandow and Marie Lloyd. In 1893 Albert Chevalier became part proprietor. The next year ' the Troc' closed its doors as a music-hall and became a restaurant.
THE SOUTH LONDON: The South
London Palace in London Road, Lambeth, was opened in 1861 as a rival to the Canterbury. It was burned down in 1869, and the new building underwent alterations as time went by. For all that, it is still a music-hall, and vividly conjures up the glamorous atmosphere of the past when you enter it today.
The older generation among listeners will find warm memories stirring in them tonight when that great comedienne Louie Freear , who was vitality itself-a life-spark-in The Gay Parisienne at the Duke of York's Theatre in 1896 and in The Chinese Honeymoon at the Strand in 1901, is heard over the microphone. She was in the bill at the Trocadero in 1893, and it is hoped that she may be persuaded to sing her famous song from The Gay Parisienne, ' Sister Jane's Top-Note '.

Sir WILLIAM BEVERIDGE , K.C.B.
Tonight's talk in this important series is outstanding because it will show listeners a working man's point of view. Since leaving school, Mr. John Moore , who is in his mid-twenties, has been engaged as a mat weaver, making mats for motor-cars and golf-links. He has been a member of the Workers' Educational Association for the past ten years, and amongst the subjects he has studied are Local Government, industrial history, economics, and the international language Esperanto.
