You will find Bolivia - country without a coast - on your map hemmed in by Peru and Brazil, with Chile, Argentina, and Paraguay to the south. This afternoon Mr Ivor Thomas is to describe Bolivia, and its capital La Paz, the highest capital in the world. He will show the contrast between tin mining in such a place as Oruro, Bolivia's tin mining centre, and in Malaya, and tell you why Bolivia sends her tin to Britain for smelting. You have seen llamas at the Zoo. In the mining districts of Bolivia they are used as pack animals. Mr Thomas will tell you about a mountain peak half as high again as Mont Blanc, and of a lake 12,000 feet above sea level on which Indians go afloat in a native boat made of bulrushes.

Lord PHILLIMORE will propose the Toast of the ' NATIONAL ALLOTMENTS
The Right Hon. Sir FRANCIS DYKE ACLAND, Bt., M.P., will reply
Relayed from The New Corn Exchange, Brighton
Allotment holders began to organise about thirty years ago, but it was during the War that the movement spread to town as well as country, and in 1920 1 1/2 million allotments were under cultivation in England and Wales.
Afterwards allotments began to decline in number, and in ten years about half a million were taken for building and other public purposes. A good deal of the land thus lost was, of course, used for council-house gardens, so it did not all go out of cultivation. In 1930, in view of the increasing demands of the builder and the very insecure tenure of allotments, the original Agricultural Organisation Society and the National Union of Allotment Holders joined forces and were amalgamated as the National Allotments Society, which is holding its annual banquet tonight.
The Society, in conjunction with the Society of Friends, is working the Government's Allotments for Unemployed scheme, and it is appropriate that Lord Phillimore, who is so interested in allotments for the Unemployed, should propose the toast this evening. It will be replied to by Sir Francis Dyke Acland, the first and present President of the Society who has provided a Challenge Cup that will be awarded to the area making the greatest advancement in the course of the year.
