A Commentary on the Inter-Zone Final by Capt. H. B. T. WAKELAM
Relayed from the Centre Court,
In the competition for the Davis Cup, the winners in any given year defend their title in the following year, and the final of the Inter-Zone, which is equivalent to a semi-final and decides what country shall finally challenge the holders, is always played in the country of the holders. Two years ago Great Britain wrested the cup from France, who had won it six years in succession, following seven consecutive wins by the United States. Thus in 1933 the Challenge round was the first played in England since 1913.
The commentary listeners arc to hear this afternoon will be on the Inter-Zone Final, the winners of which are to meet Great Britain next Saturday.

The short figure of Alec Nelson , the famous athletic coach, has been familiar at Fenner's-the Cambridge University
Athletic ground-for many years. All the great Cambridge University athletes have passed through his hands. The names of many of those before the war are forgotten, but such names as Stallard, Abrahams, D. G. A. Lowe, Weightman-Smith, Lord Burleigh, and R. M. N. Tisdall are world-famed. Of Cambridge University prestige in the world's athletics, there remains nothing to be said !

This is a repeat of Geraldo's Non-Stop Pageant, broadcast on May 4. It consists of numbers from popular tunes of the past twenty-five years. Dance music, popular songs, anything and everything that caught on at the time, tunes that rang in our ears, and were for long remembered. Pre-war waltzes ... ragtime ... the feverish ditties of the war period ... jazz ... the languorous blues.... and so to the rumba !
Everyone who listens to these Non-
Stop Hours cannot help but be carried away by the sheer breathless excitement of it all-one tune following another without a pause. It was an amazing feat of Geraldo and his band to broadcast 145 tunes without a stop in his first ' Dancing Through '. But even that incredible number has been left behind.
So popular have these Non-Stops been that each edition has been repeated.
The first was broadcast in April last year and was repeated in June. The second, broadcast in November, was repeated last February. It was generally agreed that this Jubilee edition was the best so far.
