4-' Leisure '
K. C. BOSWELL
Last week Commander King-Hall spoke of leisure nowadays, when more and more work is being done by machinery, and people have more spare time than they had in the past. This morning Mr. K. C. Boswell is to go back to the days when most people at any rate had very little spare time indeed, and even less in mediaeval times when there was no artificial fighting as we know it, to make enjoyment possible in the winter evenings.
The British people have always known how to enjoy their holidays and sport, and Mr. Boswell will tell listeners how people did enjoy themselves in the past in the time of Eliza- beth, in the eighteenth century, and again in the nineteenth. He will say something of the origin of our national holidays and festivals, and describe the rise of modem sport in the nineteenth century.

This afternoon Mr. Gaddum is to tell listeners how to make an aquarium, and the cheapest possible way to set about it. He will tell them how to keep the water fresh. There are animals that will live peacefully together and there are those that will kill each other if placed in the same aquarium. Mr. Gaddum will talk about both, and about the fish called the stickle-back and the curious nest it makes. Finally, he will give a short account of other curious pond animals, which can easily be made to live in captivity.
Teachers will find it helpful to have illustrations or specimens of pond-weed, water snails, stickle-backs and a horse-leech to show their class.

This evening Sir Alan Anderson , of the Orient Line, is to describe the romance of the evolution of shipping in the last hundred years. He will take as his text the cost that enters into the plans of every problem of sea trade— the revenue and profit and loss. ' Rather a sad text today,' as he says, ' because shipowners are in the grip of deep depression '. In his talk today, and in a second talk next week, Sir Alan will explain the reasons for this deep depression-bad trade-the failure of competitors enabling new owners to buy ships at bankrupt prices and enter the competition at cut rates -the fortunes spent by various nations on uneconomic competition.
And finally, he will discuss the question of subsidies which no one pretends are a cure for the disease, though ' the experience of one year has shown that the tramp shipowners have learned the lesson of adversity and have been helped by their subsidy to enforce co-operation, and discipline in their own ranks '.
