Mrs. E.O. Lorimer
This morning in the first of four talks on the North-West Frontier Mrs. Lorimer is to describe how she and her husband twice made the arduous journey from Rawalpindi to Hunza, four days' march beyond Gilgit, among the immense mountains of the Hindu Kush and Karakoram-a journey by train and boat and pony, over passes very nearly as high as Mont Blanc, through heavy rain or snow.
For four years Lt.-Col. Lorimer was Political Agent in Gilgit, and Hunza was one of the provinces under his care. When he retired in 1924 he devoted five years to writing a book in three volumes on the Burushaski language; and two years ago a Leverhulme Research Fellowship enabled him to return to Hunza in a private capacity. He and Mrs. Lorimer were the first white man and white woman to learn the language, and in this interesting talk Mrs. Lorimer is to tell listeners how the women and children of Hunza became her friends.

' The Changing World
7— The New World'
' ... I left the city of Granada on the 12th day of May, in the same year of 1492, being Saturday, and came to the town of Palos which is a seaport: where I equipped three vessels well suited for such service : and departed from that port well supplied with provisions and with many sailors.....'
This is a translation of part of a letter written by Christopher Columbus to King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella of Spain when he set out to cross the Atlantic.

A Jewish Revue
Devised by JOSEPH G. HALTER
MONA LEE , EUGENIE HARRIS , RYINKA FELCZER, HENRI MONDI, AL BURNETT and THE JEWISH REVUE CHORUS and THE BBC VARIETY ORCHESTRA
Conducted by JOSEPH G. HALTER
Here is a special feature—music, artists, chorus all Jewish ; many of the words in Yiddish. But in case those who do not understand Yiddish might hesitate to tune in, let it be said that everything in Yiddish will be explained by the compere, and everything will be understood.
The music is of all kinds-the more serious traditional melodies will be contrasted with humour. There will be a medley of Jewish folk songs sung in the language of the country-Russia, Rumania, Poland, and so on, and these will be sung by a Hebrew girl, Ryinka Felczer , who has broadcast with the Cafe Colette. A new tenor, Henri Mondi , is to make his radio debut. Much of the music has been composed by Joseph G. Halter , who has devised the programme.
A Jewish revue chorus has been specially got together. The title Almonds and Raisins has been chosen as it is the name of a well-known traditional Jewish melody.
