Some Questions of Bee-Keeping
This afternoon R. Gamble, who gave the first talk three weeks ago, will discuss bee-keeping with a friend. He will answer various questions that have arisen in the course of the talks. Some of these will be of bee-keeping in general, others on the technical aspects of bee-keeping as they appear to the beginner. Mr. Gamble's friend, who knew nothing about the business until a few weeks ago, will probably ask the very questions that listeners themselves will be wanting to know.

Lord Berners's 'Luna Park' is a fantastic ballet in one Act, which was originally written for C. B. Cochran's 1930 Revue with Nikitina and Lifar in the principal parts. The scene of the ballet is a Freak Pavilion in Luna Park.
There are four niches concealed behind curtains, each of which contains a freak: a man with three heads; a three-legged juggler; a one-legged ballerina; and a man with six arms. The showman enters, bows to the audience, raises the curtains of the niches in turn and each freak performs a little dance.
After the show, the freaks decide that they have had enough of circus life and they will go into the world and seek their fortune. The showman returns for the second performance, finds in the first niche two heads, in the second the juggler's billiard balls moving round in a slot, and the extra leg of the juggler. The third niche is empty, and in the fourth four arms wave wildly. The showman endeavours to close down the niches, but when he approaches the four waving arms, he is caught by them and strangled.

ANDRfi ASSELIN AND FRANK LAFFITTE Debussy's 'The Submerged Cathedral ' is one of his most popular and best known piano pieces. A Breton legend tells how the cathedral of the submerged city of Ys rises .out of the waves sometimes on a clear morning when the sea is calm and transparent. The bells are heard to chime, the priests to intone, until after a while the cathedral sinks again to its enchanted age-long sleep.

An appeal on behalf of Spero Industries (Central Fund for the Industrial Welfare of Tuberculous Persons) by The Right Hon. The Lord Rushcliffe, C.B.E.
The Spero Industries provide employment for tuberculous people who have returned from sanatoria with the disease arrested, but who are unable to compete in the labour market by reason of their disability. They are able to lead a normal life at home, working daily for a weekly wage in special workshops under medical supervision. Fancy leather goods, hand-made gloves, toys, furniture, firewood, form the industries.
The Committee relies on the public to contribute the capital necessary to maintain the present workshops, to provide for expansion, and to move the wood factory, marked for early demolition, to newer and better premises.
Lord Rushcliffe, who as Minister of Labour opened the Spero Leather Workshop premises in 1931, is to make the appeal tonight. The sum needed is Â£10,000.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to The Right Hon. The Lord Rushcliffe, C.B.E., [address removed]

RICHARD TAUBER (tenor)
It is over a year since Richard Tauber was on the air. This evening in a unique programme he is to be heard as singer, composer, and conductor.
While still in his teens Tauber trained as a conductor at the Frankfurt Conservatorium, and during an illness composed his first opera. At Freiburg, when he was nineteen, Professor Karl Beines discovered his ' golden voice'. In 1913 he made his debut as Tamino in The Magic Flute, and was immediately engaged for the Dresden State Opera, where he remained for ten years. In 1915 he sang for the first time in Berlin, ' Bacchus ' in Richard Strauss 's Ariadne. He was the first German singer to appear after the war in Stockholm and with the Opéra in Paris.
In 1933 he made a concert tour of nine countries. His recorded voice must have been heard all over the world. His first British film was Blossom Time. This last winter he has been singing at the Vienna Opera House.
It is as an outstanding interpreter of Lehar's works that Tauber is most famous : Paganini, Zarewitsch, Friederike, The Land of Smiles (which he has sung over 700 times).
Listeners are to hear tonight the great tenor to whom Lehar dedicated ' You are my heart's delight'. Conducted by THE COMPOSER
