G.B. Barbour, Ph.D.
The whole of North America in four hours! That is the actual amount of time Dr. George Barbour will be on the air for the geography of a country eighty times the size of Great Britain.
It can't be done, he says; and yet after all, we know a good deal about
Canada and the United States already, for many of the people in the New
World are our own folk and left the 'old country', comparatively speaking,' only a few years ago.
Last week Dr. Barbour introduced New York City; today he is to talk about New England. He will talk of the Pilgrim Fathers and of the poor rocky soil they found. It was a far cry from Plymouth, Eng., to Plymouth Mass., to find England - a new England for them.
He will also talk of conditions today on the one hand of the thinly peopled highlands, worked-out farms and immigrant labour, and on the other hand of prosperous apple-orchards, dairy-farms, tobacco-fields. He will talk of whaling and fishing ports, water power, paper mills; shoe, textile, and small metal factories; of Boston and the New England tradition.
On September 18 the Tercentenary of Harvard University was celebrated. In honour of the event, Dr. Barbour is to bring to the microphone a Harvard man to say something of the New England from which he comes.

2.5 Your Home and Mine
' How Homes Began '
G. M. BOUMPHREY
2.30 British History
Illustrated Talk written by HUGH Ross WILLIAMSON
Before the Roman came to Rye or out to Severn strode,
The rolling English drunkard made the rolling
A reefing road, a rolling road.that rambles lound theshire,
And after him the parson ran, the sexton and the squire;
A merry road, a mazy road, and such as we did tread
The night we went to Birmingham by way of Beachy Head.
Listeners will hear today how straight roads were first made in England instead of ones like that described by G. K. Chesterton. They will hear how the Romans built them and what they used them for when they were built; and about the goods and people who passed along the road, where they came from, and where they went.

by DESMOND MACCARTHY
George Moore is best known as the author of ' Esther Waters ', a book famous for its realism and human sympathy, and of ' The Brook Kerith ', an imaginative reconstruction of the life of Joseph of Arimathaea. He was an Irishman, a great stylist, and a great story-teller-also a great character about whom Charles Morgan has recently written a most entertaining essay.
As Hone's life of George Moore was
.published at the beginning of this week,, Desmond MacCarthy is taking the opportunity to talk about his books, and about the man himself as he was at his home in Ebury Street, where MacCarthy was a frequent visitor.
