' Jerusalem after the War '
Mrs. STACY WADDY
Mrs. Waddy was in Australia at the end of the War ; her husband was a chaplain with General Allenby's force in Palestine. Somebody was needed at once to help open schools and a college. Her husband wired her to come. The chance of seeing the Holy Land seemed too good to be true.
Today Mrs. Waddy is to relate some of her experiences. A stone house outside Jerusalem that took three months to clean. Her children put to bed under mosquito nets. Camels appearing one morning in the yard with her lost luggage. Housekeeping under difficulties. Little milk, and that very poor. No butter. Very few eggs. Cooking without fat until she imported it in tins from England. She will tell of some of her expedients-cocoa and sugar on bread instead of butter ; but in spite of it all, her children throve, and she came to look on her life in Jerusalem as a ' great adventure and a great joy '.

'The Franciscans come to England '
St. Francis of Assisi was bom in the late twelfth century. His piety was not very evident in his youth. He was quite a wild young man, in fact. Later, however, he devoted himself to prayer and service to the poor, and after a time he went on a pilgrimage to Rome. From then on, his life was an amazing example of saintliness. He loved all — his fellow creatures, birds, animals, even inanimate objects. He died in 1226. This afternoon Rhoda Power will tell listeners of the followers of St. Francis who came to England in 1224. 2.25 Interlude.
