BRADFORD CO-OPERATIVE' CHOIR rjid THE FLETCHER SINGERS
This afternoon C.H. Middleton is to talk about rock gardens-how to make them and how to keep them, the soil that rock plants like, grouping of colours, Alpine plants (this is the best month to plant them). He will recommend some plants that will grow happily in almost any rock garden. Sempervivum (or 'house leeks'), hardy ferns, miniature narcissi, crocus species, hardy cyclamen, and anemones - all well worthy of a corner.
Those who are thinking about starting a rock garden would find it useful to read pages 142 to 149 of C.H. Middleton's book, Mr. Middleton Talks About Gardening before listening to the broadcast.

Is any ultimate belief possible ?
The Rev. Canon L. W. GRENSTED , D.D. Professor of Philosophy of the Christian
Religion, University of Oxford
This is the first of four talks by the Rev. Professor L. W. Grensted , who plans to deal with some of the difficulties very often felt today even among religious people.
There are many so confused by the discoveries and theories of modern psychology that they begin to feel there is no conviction of faith or rule of practice that has not been undermined ; and many who are not widely read in recent scientific work have yet picked up enough of its phrases and findings to be seriously worried.
It is often suggested that the whole idea of God is nothing more than a dream, that there are no standards of conduct other than our own ultimate convenience, and that the only life worth living is that in which we make the most for ourselves in our short years here.
These three suggestions will be taken up in turn in these addresses, and the fourth address will be devoted to answering questions that may come in from listeners.

Nationals of the countries affected by the vexed questions that harass Europe today will in this series put their varying points of view before listeners

An appeal on behalf of THE LEEDS GENERAL INFIRMARY by the Rev. LESLIE D. WEATHERHEAD
Today's appeal on behalf of the General Infirmary at Leeds is for £16,000—the balance of a sum of £250,000 urgently required, of which £234,000 has already been raised. The money is needed for extensions long overdue, which include a new out-patients' department, accommodation for nurses, a private patients' block, additional beds for the general wards, and so forth.
The General Infirmary at Leeds is one of the best known institutions of its kind in the country. Apart from treating patients from a very wide area, its work in the training of doctors and nurses is of national importance. The Rev. Leslie D. Weather head, who is'to make the appeal, was recently appointed to the City Temple after thirteen years' ministry in Leeds. He will speak from personal knowledge of the work of this great teaching hospital.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]

Consisting of a part of a religious service from
The Negro Church, Washington, called The Church of God the service being conducted by Elder Lightfoot Solomon Michaux
Tonight at 9.5 (4.5 this afternoon, Washington time) listeners in this country are to hear part of an actual service from a Negro church—the Church of God, which stands near the banks of the historic Potomac River dividing Maryland from Virginia.
They will be able to visualise the Negro congregation, fathers, mothers, little Negro children, worshipping in a wooden church, their worship led by a choir that owes nothing to training, everything to sincerity.
Among the hymns to be sung will be ' Happy am I ', ' This is God's own world ', ' Glory in my Soul ', ' Standin' in the need of prayer ', ' We have got the Devil on the run '.
An Englishman will endeavour to conjure up for listeners in Great Britain a picture of this simple Sunday-afternoon scene in the Southern States.
