G. B. BARBOUR , Ph.D.
This morning Dr. Barbour is to talk of the vast region covered by the Rocky Mountains, both in the United States and in Canada. He will describe how near Denver, in Colorado (Southern Rockies) he went up Pike's Peak, three times the height of Ben Nevis , in a motor specially built to climb in the rarefied air. Then he will take listeners to the Canadian Rockies and describe how his grandfather lived in Toronto in the days when you could only cross the mountains on pack-horse or on foot-he was one of the men who was determined that Canada must be united by a railway across the barriers through to the Pacific..... Dr. Barbour will describe an exciting adventure he himself had i when visiting Kicking Horse Pass.
Then he will talk of the cowboys in Montana and Wyoming in high-heeled boots and ' ten-gallon' hats. These talks of his are all the more real and interesting because he knows the country so intimately.

' Peasants and their Wages'
A Dramatic Interlude written by WRAY HUNT
' Whereas late against the malice of servants which were idle, and not wil- ling to serve after the pestilence, without excessive wages, it was ordained by our Lord the King.... that such manner of servants, as well as men and women, should be bound to serve, receiving salary and wages, accustomed in places where they ought to serve in the twentieth year of the reign of the King that now is or five or six years before.'
After the Black Death visited
England, the peasants tried to improve their conditions of livelihood. Listeners will hear today how they set about this, and whether they succeeded or not.

England v. Hungary
A Commentary during the play by D. W. MILLER from the Memorial Hall,
Tonight a commentary is to be given on the first international match between England and Hungary, on the Hungarians' tour of this country at the invitation of the English Table Tennis Association. And it is hoped to broadcast the game between Gyozo Barna , five times world champion, and England's Number I. The tour is a sequel to the very successful tour made over here by the Hungarians last,year under the auspices of the same Association. The present tour opened at Maidstone on November 3, and will conclude on Friday, December 18, in London. Tonight's match will be the first of five international matches.
Table tennis is such an extraordinarily fast game that few players remain in championship class after the age of twenty-five.
