From page 89 of ' When Two or Three '
'The Andean Republics '-2
' Highland Basins '
L. DUDLEY STAMP , D.Sc.
Last week you heard about the Desert Coastlands of the Andean Republics; today you are to hear about the Highland Basins. You will travel by rail from Mollendo through South Peru. Dr. Dudley Stamp will show you the landscape on either side, changing all the time from arid desert to the grandeur of volcanoes. A wait at Arequipa, where you will see the most modern form of transport in the shape of aeroplanes with one of the most ancient in the shape of llamas, the beasts of burden used by the people of the Andes.
On again, the train ascending all the time until it 'reaches a level as high as the highest mountain in Europe. Then 'down to Lake Titicaca, which you will cross by steamer, leaving at night and arriving on the Bolivian side in the morning. So on to La Paz , where more than three-quarters of the population are Indians, and at last you will reach Oruro and visit one of the tin mines up in the mountains.

' The Scholar's Contribution to the Theatre'
J. Dover Wilson
J. Dover Wilson, Regius Professor of Rhetoric and English Literature at Edinburgh University and a prominent Shakespearean scholar, is to show how scholars in the library and producers and actors in the theatre are at last working closer together, with the result that performances are becoming much nearer what Shakespeare intended them to be. He is a trustee of Shakespeare's birthplace, and among his publications are ' Life in Shakespeare's England', 'The Essential Shakespeare ', ' The Manuscript of Shakespeare's Hamlet and the Problems of its Transmission ', and ' What Happens in Hamlet', while he has edited (with Professor A. W. Pollard ) 'The Stolen and Surreptitious Shakespearean Texts ', and (with Sir Arthur Quiller-Couch ) is editing ' The New Shakespeare '.
