Basil J. Mathews , Professor of Christian World-Relations in the University of Boston, Mass.
One of the interesting features of this talk is that Professor Basil Mathews is to speak of a conversation he had with Mahatma Gandhi less than two months ago. And he will speak of Christian outcaste villages in which the faces of men and women, boys, and girls were somehow different from those of their fellow-outcastes in the non-Christian villages he had passed. On the former was some degree of happiness ; on the latter not even a glimpse of hope. He will speak of all that the Christian Church in India has done for the ' untouchables '
(and is still doing in spite of difficulties), as Mr. Gandhi agreed.
Basil Mathews , well known in this country as the author of ' The Clash of Colour ', ' Paul the Dauntless ', and other books, is just back from a three months' visit to India. He stayed with the poet, Rabindranath Tagore , toured Indian villages, and talked with Indians and Britons on many spheres of work.

On the half-a-dozen or more occasions that Mendelssohn visited London he often went to stay with William Horsley, Mus.Bac., Oxon, - composer of glees, canons and anthems and organist of the Asylum for Female Orphans - and his family, who lived at 1, High Row, Kensington Gravel-Pits. The house is still standing, but is now known as 128 Church Street. In the delightful company of William Horsley 's children, Mendelssohn spent many happy hours. On some occasions thev would have musical sessions in the drawing-room and Mendelssohn would play to them some of his latest compositions. The programme to be heard this afternoon is such that might have taken place on one of these occasions.

An appeal on behalf of The Federation of Girls' Clubs by Lady Hamilton Grant.
The Federation of Girls' Clubs which was founded in 1886 as the Factory Helpers Union, is trying to help youth to make the most of its leisure time. Its 200 affiliated clubs are in all parts of the country-there are over 150 in London alone. Their members include factory workers, domestic servants and office workers, and the clubs seek to provide the young working girl with a place of her own in which to enjoy her leisure hours. Through friendly rivalry in handicrafts, cooking, sewing, 'keep-fit' exercises, singing, verse speaking, acting, and all forms of outdoor and indoor games, interests are stimulated and friendships formed enriching the lives of many who would otherwise be forlorn and stranded in our crowded cities. Holidays at home and abroad and rambles to places of interest also form part of the activities of the Federation. Nor are the sick and convalescent forgotten.
To maintain the services of the Federation, help is urgently needed. The work is maintained entirely by public subscription, and but for the support of private individuals, it could not carry on. This appeal was to have been made by Sir Hamilton Grant who died suddenly a fortnight ago. On his behalf, Lady Grant will ask listeners to support a cause in which he was deeply interested.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to Lady Hamilton Grant, [address removed]
