2—' What we Eat'
R. C. GARRY , M.B., Ch.B., D.Sc., Professor of Physiology, University College, Dundee, the University of St.
This lesson first explains why we eat-to obtain energy, and to obtain material for growth and for repair. The six main foodstuffs-protein, carbohydrate, fat, water, salts, and vitamins-are briefly described. The composition of several common foods is shown by means of diagrams in the pamphlet. Thereafter, the estimation of food value in terms of calories is explained in elementary fashion, and the application illustrated by an example.

Disastro Heroischer Marsch im ungarischen Styl
Mrs. Christine Wood as a child was brought up in the country and had pets of her own-the wildest of all tame rabbits, a hen that flew up to her shoulder whenever she approached. The mere fact of keeping pets taught her many things ; accuracy and observation, kindness, a sense of duty, a realisation that animals and birds have personalities as much as human beings.
In her talk this evening she will stress the value of keeping pets to those children who are likely to like them, and she will suggest some kinds that it is possible to keep in suburban homes ; dogs and cats, birds, iizards and goldfish, mice ; rabbits and bantams when there is a garden ; goats and even ponies where the grounds are big enough.

Conducted by DARIUS MILHAUD and ADRIAN BOULT
Darius Milhaud can still be included amongst young French composers ; he is in his earlier forties. He studied at the Paris Conservatoire, but the War interrupted his studies, and therefore his reputation is entirely post-War He was a member of ' The Six ' and consequently a colleague of Poulenc, Auric, and Honegger, who constituted a band pronounced rebel. ' The Six ', as a group, however, has served its time, and the former members now go their way independently of one another. Milhaud has had his fun with music-his ballet The Nothing-doing Bar, and his musical comedy, The Blue Train, were amusing-but actually Milhaud is a serious musician and satire is not the whole of his equipment, as may well be seen in the ' Melodies populaires hebraiques ' which Endreze is singing and Milhaud is conducting tonight.
In an article in The RADIO Times on Schonberg's ' Pelleas and Melisande ', which was to have been performed on January 22, Edwin Evans said that this work ' may be post-Wagnerian in its idiom, and it may give allegiance to the post-Wagnerian cult of Brobdingnagian dimensions, but there is no lack of originality on the inventive side, and on the constructive there is already that passion for logical combination that was to dominate the composer's later works. Not only is the ' metamorphosis of themes ' carried a stage farther than ever before, but they arc piled up in a manner which, if the writing were fugal, would make one regard every third page as a strelto. The permutations pass too rapidly for the ear to take them all in, but one is conscious of a feeling of sanity which pervades the entire work.
