' You can plant roses quite safely any time from November till the end of March. There is no best month for the job. What is much more important is the condition of the soil. Do not plant when the soil is wet and sticky. Indeed, it is well worth while to put a few barrow loads of soil under cover somewhere, and keep it dry for use when planting, because roses like to be planted very firmly, and you can tread down a moderately dry soil round the roots much better and more effectively than you can a wet one. Make the plants very firm, so that they cannot easily be pulled out afterwards. For beds or borders of roses the bushes should be planted eighteen inches apart each way. Standards must be carefully staked, to prevent the wind blowing them about and loosening them.'
So wrote C. H. Middleton in ' Outlines of a Small Garden '. Today he is to discuss some of the kinds of roses and shrubs and trees that will make a garden beautiful, and give valuable hints about planting them.

Act III of Verdi's Opera
Recorded by MEMBERS OF LA SCALA , MILAN
The wicked Duke of Mantua has been paying court to Gilda ; though he is unaware of the fact, she is the daughter of his jester, Rigoletto, who has sworn to avenge his daughter's dishonour. But not long afterwards the Duke is attracted by the charms of Magdalena, sister of the assassin Sparafucile. Rigoletto has arranged with Sparafucile for the Duke's murder, but by an unhappy mischance Gilda, dressed as a boy so that she and her father may flee from Mantua, is stabbed by Sparafucile's dagger, and her body thrown into a sack. Rigoletto takes possession of it, in the belief that it his master's body which he is bearing away. His utter despair on finding that it is his beloved daughter who has been killed is the culminating point in the tragedy of the grim story.

VINCENT McNabb, O.P.
Reported by HOWARD MARSHALL
Continuing this important series, Howard Marshall is today to give the result of his interview with that famous Dominican preacher, Father McNabb, who was described by G. K. Ches terton as one of the few great men he had met in his life. ' Nobody who ever met or saw or heard Father McNabb has ever forgotten him,' Chesterton wrote. ' He is really a popular speaker, in the rare sense of having real popular sympathies ; and no man in modern politics has so firmly and even fiercely loved the people. '
He is one of the best-known preachers of the day, as familiar in Hyde Park or in the City as he is in the pulpit of his own church, St. Dominic's Priory, Southampton Road, North London, which he fills to overflowing.

An appeal on behalf of The British Hospital for Mothers and Babies, Woolwich, by Leslie Banks
Thirty years ago Alice Gregory and two friends decided to devote their lives to finding some method of making childbirth safe. They founded this hospital as a school for the higher training of midwives. In 1905 they were using the training which was not officially adopted until 1926.
From 1929 to 1933 there was not a single death in the hospital, where puerperal fever is a thing unknown. It is able to accommodate 800 mothers every year, but has to refuse over a thousand for lack of beds. There is room on its site for a second ward block, which would double the number that might be admitted. Â£6,000 is needed to complete it.
