This afternoon, on behalf of the World's Evangelical Alliance, Dr. Oldham is to tell listeners about the Universal Week of Prayer, which is inter-racial in its fellowship, for the prayer topics, translated into one hundred or more languages and dialects, are used by Chinese, Indians, Africans, Abyssinians, Arabs, and Persians. All these, and many others, join with European missionaries in united prayer. But the Week of Prayer is not confined to the mission fields ; it is, as its name implies, universal, and it affords an opportunity for world fellowship.
B. WALTON O'DONNELL (soloist, LEONARD BRYANT> )
Although the saxophone was first invented nearly a hundred years ago, for some curious reason serious composers have avoided writing for it, despite the fact that it is a very beautiful instrument. Of late years, however, following the lead of Debussy and Glazunov, composers have begun to interest themselves in the possibilities of the instrument. Some years ago Norman Demuth wrote a Suite scored for three saxophones and now he is presenting what is probably the first concerto for this instrument (alto saxophone). One of the chief characteristics of the music is that it avoids the modern syncopated idiom with which the saxophone has usually been so closely associated.
The Rev. ROBERT C. MACKIE , General Secretary of the Student Christian
Every four years the Student Christian Movement of Great Britain and Ireland assembles two thousand delegates, for the most part present students, in an international and missionary conference for five days. The importance of the issues dealt with, European and Eastern, educational and political, and the potentialities of a movement which has thousands of students in its ranks throughout the world, make this an occasion worth noting. The talk will indicate the direction in which the thoughts of younger Christians are turning.

An appeal on behalf of THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND HOMES FOR WAIFS AND STRAYS, by the Right Rev. The Bishop of KINGSTON
The Waifs and Strays Society has under its care a family of no fewer than 4,600 children. Many are in one or other of a hundred homes all over the country, many are boarded out in cottages under careful supervision. Among the children are hundreds of babies and cripples in special homes, and an organisation of young people,' The Children's Union ', works specially for them. A recent development is work for backward children, who need help more than most. Boys and girls alike are trained for useful occupations. More, children of all denominations are admitted, and in cases where the mother is left a widow and is able to look after her children, the Society is willing to consider making a grant to enable her to keep them with her, and so save the home from being broken up. This magnificent work has a deficit of several thousand pounds.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to the Right Rev. the Bishop of Kingston, Waifs and Strays Society, [address removed]

' The Mark on the Shutter' by DESMOND MACCARTHY read by RONALD WATKINS
Here is a story, written with Desmond MacCarthy 's sure touch, of a collection of pleasant and unpleasant little boys and of one boy in particular with a conscience-which is destined to be made elastic by the world around him before he grows to be a man.
The setting, a preparatory school, time, mid-winter term, the opening scene the library in which the whole school is boxed up after a three days' storm. No safety valve-something bound to'happen. Then shortly before lunch one morning the school is summoned by the Head to the Big Playroom. Someone has defaced one of the shutters in the library with a drawing or inscription no longer decipherable. Will the culprit own up ?
In the answer and all that came of it is the human interest of this story, in which the Head and the boy with a conscience stand out clear-cut.
