T. E. Howard
This morning listeners are to hear how a rat-catcher spends his week-ends. The Howards have been catching rats for 200 years. The job is now a highly organised one, for rats have become clever. It is their misfortune that they are enemies of society-dogs, ferrets, guns, and even gas have to be used.
The work has to be done when premises are empty - hence the weekend. Mr. Howard will speak of the amazing size to which some rats grow, of the extraordinary skill of trained dogs, and of his ferrets, which his children make into pets, and pick up as if they were kittens.

F. W. COSTIN , N.D.H., F.R.H.S.
In these days of house building and land development the care of the trees and hedges of the countryside and the roadside trees of our towns becomes more than ever the vital concern of everyone.
The trees and hedges of today are a heritage from the planters of the past; we all must bear a part in maintaining them in health and vigour, pruning and attending to them in an understanding way; safeguarding them against mutilation, and when the time comes for replacement, planting again with knowledge and skill.
' Plant a tree ; it will grow while you sleep ' it has been said..... The planting, care, and management of trees and hedges is to be the main theme in this talk.

The novel holiday that listeners are to hear about this evening should make its special appeal to those young married people who may suppose that a novel holiday of any kind is out of the question with a small child on their hands. Mr. and MrsSutherland,. however, toured Scotland on bicycles with a baby aged two in a carrier fixed in front of the father's bicycle.
He is to tell listeners of the thrill they had-old roads, old country, but new to them. They took canvas with them and camped as the mood took them; tea brewed on wood-fires and fragrant as it never is at home ; ling and lock and mountain theirs to gaze at. It was a holiday to recommend, for it was one of the best they ever spent.
