Mrs. ARTHUR WEBB
In this talk Mrs. Arthur Webb will describe some of the methods of preserving fruit not only in the special jars made for the purpose, but also in jam jars with home-made covers.
Fruit bottling is really profitable when advantage is taken of heavy crops in the garden, or cheap sound fruit is in the market to preserve skilfully for storing, for use when fruit is scarce and expensive.
For the purpose of bottling, there is first the homely rhubarb, then green gooseberries. Although in its season when it is plentiful we may undervalue rhubarb, its fresh, rich flavour will be much appreciated when bottled and available for use in winter.

Saint-Saens's 'Danse macabre' describes a scene in a graveyard at night; the clock strikes and Death appears, knocks on the graves, and starts tuning his fiddle. In answer to his summons, several skeletons appear and; dance wildly to ;Death's fiddling. Presently the cock crows, the dance ceases, and all disappear as day breaks.
Henry Litolff (181 8-1 891) was the son of a French soldier who came to England from the Peninsula as a prisoner of war, and married an English lady. He first appeared in public at the age of twelve as a child prodigy pianist, and then for a number of years travelled extensively as a concert pianist. Eventually, he settled in Paris and devoted himself largely to composition, producing several operas, a good deal of symphonic music, and many pianoforte pieces, some of which are still played.

Eduard Steuermann studied the piano under Busoni and composition under Schdnberg. He made his first appearance with an orchestra in England at a Promenade Concert in 1931. His interests as a pianist are catholic in that he includes in his repertoire all the great piano music from Bach to Bartok, and he is considered one of the outstanding interpreters of contemporary music. '
It is interesting to note that although Mr. Steuermann shows such a live interest in the extreme moderns, he has also edited an edition of the complete piano works of Brahms.

' Running the Ship : Liners '
Lord Essendon, who is Chairman of the Furness Withy Line and of the Royal Mail, and a Director of the Cunard White Star Line, has been connected with the shipping industry for over fifty years. And listeners will find in his talk not only an intimate knowledge of the tiniest detail of ships afloat, but almost a lyric love of these ships.
He will describe the evolution of the liner from a ship which Dr. Johnson said was far less comfortable than gaot into the luxurious floating hotel and railway it is today. The planning oft he ship, its construction, the concern for the safety of passengers and crew, the difficulties of catering, cargo, the infinitesimal cost of freight, the economic difficulties of our times, the skill, courage, and loyalty of the personnel-these among other things will be dealt with in Lord Essendon's talk.
(First Broadcast Performance)
Scene: The Castle of Sant' Angelo
Conductor, VINCENZO BELLEZZA from the Royal Opera House, Coverit
In Act III of Puccini's Tosca Cavara dossi is seen writing a letter of farewell 'on the battlements of Sant' Angelo prison. He soliloquises over the past in the aria ' When the stars were brightly shining '. Tosca comes to explain that dummy bullets are to be used for the execution. The firing party take up their positions. Cavaradossi falls. Tosca gives the signal for him to get up, but the execution, unfortunately, is a real one.
Guards rush up to arrest Tosca for the murder of Scarpia. She pushes them aside and throws herself over the parapet.
