Children and the Police
T. A. HIGSON ,
President of the Manchester Law Society. Chairman of the Juvenile Trading Sub-Committee of the Watch Committee
Manchester claims to be one of the first cities in the country to cultivate that friendly feeling between policemen and children that makes children of today run to the policeman instead of away from him.

' Early Spring Flowers '
C. C. GADDUM
This broadcast will deal with spring flowers, the reason why certain flowers choose to bloom at this time of year instead of waiting for the summer weather, and how they are able to get sufficient food to enable them to flower and set their seed. The dearth of insects in early spring is a serious handicap to most flowers, but the speaker will explain how it is overcome. Finally, he will invite listeners to form their own opinions on the question of why most spring flowers are white or yellow.
2.30 English Literature-2
' Henry IV ' (Part 1)
This production will follow the precedent set when The Tempest was broadcast to Schools in linking up scenes with narrative, which has been written and will be spoken by Harcourt Williams , who will also play Owen Glendower. Listeners are to hear the story of stirring times in England told in stirring verse by England's greatest poet. (The Falstaff scenes will be given next week.)
The precis of the plot is this:
About four years before the play opens, Bolingbroke has deposed and murdered Richard 11 and usurped the throne as Henry IV. But his reign is not peaceful, for the Scots and the Welsh invade England. In the north, on Henry's behalf, Hotspur defeats the Scottish lords, but in the west Glendower has captured Henry's kinsman, Edmund Mortimer.
When Henry refuses to ransom
Mortimer, the Percys (Northumberland and his son, Hotspur) thinking they have a grievance against the king whom they have helped to the throne, plan a rebellion, aiming at putting Mortimer in Henry's place. The rebels meet the king's forces at Shrewsbury, where Henry's son ' Harry ' proves that a young man may sow his wild oats and yet be brave by defeating in single combat Hotspur, whom he knows to be the bravest man in England.

Concerning the Small Family, its Causes and Consequences
This new series is to deal with one of the major problems of the future -the trend in world population and the significance of some of its causes and effects. It would seem that in Europe small families are the chief single cause of the fall in population and of the growing disparity between young and old. Is the reason for this economical, or is it social?
The series opens with a debate.
On the one hand will be heard T. H Marshall , Reader in Sociology at the London School of Economics (who will take part in each broadcast in the series), and, side by side with him, another expert, D. H. McLach lan, author of articles on population in The Times. On the other hand listeners are to hear three people who are not experts, who are only too well acquainted with some of the reasons deterring married couples from having large families.
