'Life Under Water'
E. B. WORTHINGTON , Ph.D.
These talks hitherto have dealt with life on the earth, underground, and in the air, and it is the turn of the fish to come under the microscope this evening. A deliberately chosen term, for Dr. Worthington observes not only with his eyes, but with microscope and scalpel. Post-mortem inquiry into the feeding habits of the fish inhabiting the Vyrnwy Lake, constructed forty-five years ago. has revealed interesting differences between the same species of fish frequenting different parts of the lake. He will discuss this this evening.
To Dr. Worthington fish have the same beauty and interest as animals-perhaps more interest because so little is known about them. He is Demonstrator in the Department of Zoology in Cambridge University and had a distinguished career there. In addition he has undertaken several fishing surveys of the African lakes, and he was awarded the Gill Memorial by the Royal Geographical Society in 1932. In that year he gave a broadcast talk ' Crocodile Island '.

Nobody had much chance of patronising Beethoven—patronising, that is, in the sense of condescension. He was a proud, independent soul, fierily resentful of anything like patronage, yet he had many true patrons among the nobility-Princes and Counts who continually helped him, and at whose houses he was frequently a guest.
One of the chief among these was
Prince Razumovsky, the Russian Ambassador at Vienna during many years. This nobleman formed a String Quartet which he supported, and .;hich became famous. To him Beethoven, then in his prime, dedicated three of his finest String Quartets, of which this is one.
Frank Bridge has produced some of the finest of modem British chamber music. And not only the finest, but the most approachable. He can produce what Sir Walter Scott called ' the big bow-wow stuff ' with anyone, but he can also turn out charming miniatures like the pieces the Griller Quartet is playing tonight.
