In discussing today the origin of our garden plants, C. H. Middleton will talk about the methods of raising new varieties of flowers, and describe how most of the beautiful flowers of the world have found their way into our gardens, and how they have since been developed and improved by plant breeders. Producing new garden hybrids by crossfertilising the popular flowers is a fascinating hobby for those who have time to devote to it, and there is still plenty of scope and possibilities of reward for the skilful and patient plant breeder.

Is the degree to which institutional religion has lost touch with the younger generation due to the tendency of the Church to think and speak in the language of the older tradition, which is resisting change? Has Christianity, in laying exclusive emphasis on the supernatural, lost contact with the problems of the natural world?
The pressure of world events is producing a new expression of Christianity, which views the spiritual and material as a unity, and claims that religion is unfulfilled if it fails to establish a Christian civilisation in our time. This religious revival should realise itself in the process of change, and is likely to prove no less important in its effects than the Reformation.
This afternoon, in the first of his three talks, Kenneth Ingram , who was Assistant-Secretary of the English Church Union in 1907 and became a lay member of the Church Assembly in 1924, is to discuss the possibility, and the implications, of such a revival: in his fourth talk he will answer listeners' questions. Among his many publications are ' The Changing Order ', ' Has the Church failed?', 'The Church of Tomorrow', and ' The Coming Civilisation '-the last being a collection of the talks he broadcast in 1935.

Eugene Goossens has written two sonatas for violin and piano, of which the first appeared in 1918. In an analysis of this work Edwin Evans says that ' at once the emotional side of his temperament and the devices of his personal temperament are found in full development. Except, however, in the lyrical slow movement, the sentiment is embedded in a context that harbours some contradictions, as if the voice of irony refused to be entirely silenced '.

An appeal on behalf of the Royal National Hospital for Rheumatic Diseases, Bath, by the Right Hon. Sir John Simon, G.C.S.I., K.C.V.O., M.P., Home Secretary
The Royal National Hospital for Rheumatic Diseases, Bath, formerly known as the Royal Mineral Water Hospital, was founded 200 years ago by Beau Nash. It receives poor patients from all parts of the kingdom who are suffering from rheumatic diseases. Treatment is. free, but patients who are able to contribute towards their maintenance are asked to do so. Bath contains the only natural hot springs in the country, and history shows that for two thousand years people have gone there for the alleviation or cure of rheumatism. Few people, apart from doctors and sufferers, realise how the increasing ravages of rheumatic diseases are affecting the lives of our workers. Nearly one-sixth of the industrial ill-health of the country is due to this cause alone.
The hospital buildings are now out of date, and the Governors are making a national appeal for help to build a new hospital, with, amongst other things, a much larger research department, on a site that has been offered to them by the City Council. The sum required is Â£200,000 and of this Â£50,000 has already been promised.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to The Honorary Treasurer, Royal National Hospital for Rheumatic Diseases, Bath.
