' Some of Nature's Puzzles '
C. C. GADDUM
Nature is full of conundrums and puzzles. Why, for instance, do sparrows attack crocuses, pecking at the blooms and scattering the pieces on the ground? How does the woodpecker produce that curious drumming sound which reverberates through the woods in early summer? Where do frogs and toads spend the winter, and what is it that causes them all to migrate to the water at exactly the same time all over the country? How does the crocodile recognise the crocodile, bird when he is feeding inside the crocodile's mouth? Mr. Gaddum will give his own answers to these puzzling questions.

' Shopping and Taste'
A feature of tonight's contribution to this series is that it is to be given by a man who is interested in both trade and literature, who has directed trade journals and who has been Chairman of the British Colour Council and a brilliant and fluent writer of belles lettres.
Holbrook Jackson is to talk of shopping and taste-the taste of the shopkeeper and window dresser, and the taste of the public. Is the one influenced by the other? Is it the shopkeeper who raises the taste of the public, or is it the other way about?
' From Kennington Oval to
N. J. N. Dixon
On May 1, 93,000 lucky ticket-holders will be in the Stadium at Wembley watching some team make history in yet another Cup Final, and millions will be listening to the broadcast account of it. But probably few know much about the romantic history of this event which has become an annual spotlight in our sporting year. Tonight's talk will tell the history of the Cup from its early days through the twenty years it was played for at the Crystal Palace, to that notorious first year at Wembley, in 1923, when 120,000 paid for admission and half as many again gate-crashed their way in, and held up play for forty-five minutes.

What we may Expect : The
Economic and Social Consequences of the Population Trend
H. D. Henderson and 'T. H. Marshall
The expert whom T. H. Marshall is to draw out tonight-putting to him the kind of questions that puzzle the ordinary man and woman-is H. D. Henderson , who has been Research Fellow in Economics at All Souls College, Oxford, since 1934. Mr. Henderson will discuss and answer questions on some of the consequences of decreasing population ; and he will deal with this under three heads: its effect on unemployment, on the standard of living, and on international trade.

Nicolas Medtner was born in Moscow in 1880. He studied at the Moscow Conservatoire under Aren-sky, Safonov, and Taneiev. In 1900 he won a Gold Medal and made his debut as a pianist in Vienna in the Third International Competition, in which he carried off the Rubinstein prize. In 1909 Medtner was appointed professor at the Moscow Conservatoire, which post he occupied until 1921, when he left Russia. Recently he came to London, where he now lives permanently. On the surface his compositions are austere and intellectual, but underneath, his music is full of romantic feeling and his style is nowhere more characteristic than in his short piano pieces and chamber music.
