Conducted by PETER MONTGOMERY
A. S. Arensky (1861-1006), one of the most interesting of minor Russian composers, is known in England chiefly by his pleasant, lyrical chamber music and by his polished miniatures for piano, which he produced prolifically. Though a pupil of Rimsky-Korsakov, his work is not very remarkable for national flavouring. It is similar in quality to the more lyrical part of Tchaikovsky's output.
Towards the end of his life Arensky's faculties were undermined by living at a rather furious pace, and his last days were spent in tragic futility. Galloping consumption ended his life.

' Estoro '
By PETER JACKSON
Told by ROWLEY BROOKE
Here is a story very different from the run of stories heard on the air. In telling ot the imagination of a child it shows the imagination of the man who wrote it. 'Peter Jackson ' is the nom de plume of George Ernest Jack son aged forty-two, who joined the Post Office ten years ago and was promptly re-christened ' Peter.' He is now employed in the Cable Room, Central Telegraph Office, which serves most of Europe for telegraph, and houses the famous Rugby Wireless Transmitter, the most powerful station in the world.
Here 'Peter' works, and in his spare time ne cohtributes articles and short stories to the Post Office Service journals ; sometimes he sends them farther afield, but they collect rejection slips. But Peter may be comforted by the fact that W. L. George , who sold as readily as most men once he came into his own, confessed that he collected enough rejection slips to paper the walls of his room.
ESTHER COLEMAN (contralto)
HERBERT HEYNER (baritone)
Esther Coleman was born at Hampstead. While at school she learnt to play the piano and organ, and then, after hearing Dora Labbette sing, she decided she would herself become a singer. Six years' hard study at the Guildhall School of Music equipped her for what was to be a remarkable career.
Miss Coleman gave her first recital at Wigmore Hall in 1924, went on tour for the British Music Society, r.nd sang with the Bournemouth Municipal Orchestra under Sir Dan Godfrey. Since that time Miss Coleman has attained a foremost place in the world of singing, having broadcast many hundreds of times in England and France.

An Appeal on behalf of THE PEOPLE'S DISPENSARY FOR SICK ANIMALS OF THE
POOR by CHRISTOPHER STONE
There can be few missions to appeal to our imagination and sympathy more than that of the People's Dispensary for Sick Animals of the Poor. Eighteen years ago Mrs. M. E. Dickin founded it in the East End of London. She had one assistant. A cellar was its first dispensary, a converted sugar box its first ambulance... Four patients were treated in the first day.
Today the organisation has sixty-nine dispensaries, five animal hospitals, eight travelling caravan dispensaries, and a well-equipped and up-to-date sanatorium and training centre at llford. In addition, two dispensaries have been established in Paris and others in Roumania, Tangier, and the Dutch East Indies. The P.D.S.A. now employs 200 men, and treats nearly two million cases a year.
Last week ' The Broadcasters ' recorded a first-hand experience of taking a poor dog that had been run over to the nearest dispensary at a late hour of the night. The casualty bell was answered promptly, and the dumb creature aided at once. The P.D.S.A., which is doing a wonderful work, charges nothing for its services and is dependent entirely on voluntary contributions.
