From page 21 of ' New Every Morning'
at the Organ of the Regal Cinema, Torquay Reginald Porter-Brown first entered the cinema field at the Picture House, Swinton, and at the early age of twenty-one he was organist at the Piccadilly, Manchester. Before being appointed to the Regal, Torquay, in 1933, he held posts at the Theatre Royal, Manchester, and Theatre Royal, Preston. In July, 1935, he opened a new organ at the Forum, Southampton, and more recently the New Savoy Cinema, Exeter. He recently gave a church-organ broadcast, from St. Marychurch Parish Church, Torquay. He was the youngest of the four organists who opened the BBC Theatre Organ, on October 20 last year.

Mrs. Barbara Rothwell Fielding
This afternoon Mrs. Barbara Roth well Fielding is to talk about the famous Cruft's Show, which, except for the war period, has been an annual event in the dog world since 1886. Last year there were 10,650 entries in the various classes, which was easily a record, though it may be beaten at this year's show, to be held at the Royal Agricultural Hall, Islington, on Wednesday and Thursday, February 10 and 11. Mrs. Rothwell Fielding has judged dogs both in Australia and over here, and has been breeding them for over twenty years. Among the breeds in which she has specialised are chows, Cavalier King Charles spaniels, and Afghans. About nine years ago she introduced an Afghan hound into her kennels, and since then she has devoted most of her time to this interesting breed. The winners she has bred and shown are too numerous to mention, but pride of place goes, perhaps, to ' Nimrod of Kuranda ' as a winner, while she also possesses that outstanding stud dog ' Kulli Khan '. By profession she is an artist, and specialises in animal portraiture.

Some men, thrown out of work in the last decade through trade upheaval, will probably never get jobs again. The death or rationalisation of local industry leaves older men in particular high and dry. What are they to do? None of them cares to look forward endlessly to an idle life dependent on public money. Yet what is the alternative?
In the Lancashire and South Wales coalfields a group led by Peter Scott is experimenting in a system of co-operative production of the necessities of life-farm produce, clothes, bread, coal, and so forth - which enables the participants to raise their standard of life considerably without throwing others out of work by competitive production.
Is the basis of the scheme sound?
What alternatives are there for men ever to get back to their old jobs? These are some of the questions which will be discussed tonight.
On January 20 Van Phillips introduced four French horns into his dance band. The response of listeners to this experiment was so favourable that four horns are to augment his dance band again tonight, when exactly the same programme will be repeated.
