2.5 The Practice and Science of Gardening—10
' Regional Aspects of Crop Production '
B. A. KEEN , D.Sc., F.R.S.
It is common knowledge that the north of Britain is colder than the south, that the west is wetter than the east, and that high land is colder than low land. The situation of slopes is also of importance, since those facing north produce their vegetation later than those facing south. The quality of the soil, too, must be taken into account.
Today Dr. Keen will explain how such factors as these influence gardening and fruit-growing, and he will show what methods have been adopted to overcome difficulties and in certain cases to turn them to advantage.
2.30 Concert to Schools
GEORGE DIXON (baritone)
THE LONDON SENIOR ORCHESTRA
Conductor, ERNEST READ
In the autumn of 1934 the happy idea was inaugurated of broadcasting an end-of-term concert in which Schools could join-a sort of breaking-up jollification ; and today the fifth concert of the kind is to be given. Once again the London Senior Orchestra, which has accompanied every concert, will provide the music, and Ernest Read , who founded the orchestra, will conduct. Though listeners will hear only George Dixon singing, they should remember that he is leading boy and girl vocalists in the schools. With pamphlets containing the words of the songs in their hands the schoolchildren will be singing all the songs.

This is no history book-just a scrapbook of fragments. We pick and choose, laying a cherished oddment beside the quaint choice of a moment ago. Voices from the past. Songs of yesteryear. Events re-lived. This oddness, these strange juxtapositions are the fascination of a scrapbook.
