Four Hundred Years of the Printed
By the Rev. A. H. WILKINSON
This year has been marked by two important centenaries connected with the Bible. In the year 735 Bede made the first translation into English of the Gospel of St. John. In 1535 Coverdale, later Bishop of Exeter, produced the first printed English Bible. From Coverdale onwards the Bible has gained an increasing hold on the minds of Englishmen until today, and millions of copies of the whole or part of it are printed every year. Mr. Wilkinson is one of the two Secretaries of the British and Foreign Bible Society, which has done more than any other society to make the Bible known throughout the world.

When Smetana composed his Quartet in E minor, ' Aus meinem Leben ', he said he intended that the form should not follow orthodox procedure, but should be the outcome of the subject, the subject being ' The story of my life'. The first movement portrays Smetana's early days-his love of art, romantic disposition, and yearnings. The second ' recalls memories of my gay life in youth, when I used to write dance music and gave it away wholesale to other young people. I was myself an enthusiastic dancer '.
The third movement' recalls the bliss of my first love for a girl who afterwards became my faithful wife.' The fourth movement depicts the joy of creating a national music, and ' the interruption of the catastrophe, the beginning of my deafness, a glimpse into the melancholy future'. We hear the persistent note with which his ears were for ever haunted.
This evening the last broadcast for a while will be given of this popular series, which was designed to show the Empire at Work by means of talks at the microphone by various Empire workers. In the initial broadcast on January 6, the Bishop of the Arctic spoke of Arctic Canada, and a policeman on the Gold Coast, a tea planter in Assam, and a schoolmaster in Jamaica, each described his life and experiences. Such infinite variety set a precedent for the broadcasts that followed, and tonight Canon Peacock will describe a school for African boys in Nigeria and recount some good stories of the superstitions of the natives, while another talk will be about life on the loneliest cattle out-station in Australia.

An Appeal on behalf of THE ALL-HALLOWS' COUNTRY Hos
PITAL, DlTCHINGHAM, NORFOLK, by LORD ELMLEY, M.P.
All Hallows' Hospital, Ditchingham, is on the Norfolk-Suffolk border, in Lord Elmley's constituency. It serves a large and poor agricultural district. A small hospital of only twenty-five beds, it does not share the publicity given to its larger sisters.
Situated at Ditchingham for over sixty years, and owned and partly staffed by the Community of All Hallows, the Hospital has no foundation capital and every major expenditure has to be met by a special local effort. An increase of staff is the outstanding need and Lord Elmley, in his appeal, will show how pressing that need is.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to [address removed]
