The World's Open Championship
D. S. Milford (Great Britain)
N. Setzler ' (U.S.A.)
A Running Commentary on the final stages by Thomas Woodrooffe and R. Aird from the Queen's Club,
The World's Open Championship is played in two halves-each match consisting of the best of seven games. The first half was played in America when Milford, English Amateur Champion for the last two years, lost to Setzler, who won the deciding game after the score stood at three all.
If Milford wins the second half of the match (to be played over here) by a margin of two games or more, he will be champion of the world. If, however, the number of games is equal, then the number of aces each has scored will decide the world champion.

Commentaries by F. J. Findon (of The Light Car) and Graham Walker from Donington Park
4.50 Public School Sports
5.5 The Empire Trophy Race
This afternoon listeners are to hear a commentary by H. M. Abrahams on the Public Schools Sports at the White City, from 4 p.m. to 4.25, and again from 4.50 to 5.5. The periods between 4.25 to 4.50 and between 5.5 and 5.15 will be given to the sixth International British Empire Trophy Race, which is to be run at Donington Park. The course is a very tricky one, over a natural road circuit in the beautiful grounds of Donington Hall. The race, which is of handicap order, covers eighty laps, or 204 miles ; the principal award is a trophy and £250; some of the fastest cars in the world will compete, and, among drivers, last year's winner, a Swiss racing driver, Hans Reusch , who shared the wheel with Richard Seaman.
The race starts at 2 p.m. and will probably finish round about 4.45, in which case F. J. Findon , Editor of The Light Car, and Graham Walker , well known in the motorcycle world, who are to give the running commentary between them, will interview the winners at the microphone.

An Alphabetical Miscellany devised by Alan Keith and produced by A. W. Hanson
Here is a new feature, to be produced by Hanson of ' In Town Tonight' fame, with the inventive genius of Maschwitz behind it. As was the case with 'In Town Tonight', neither they nor the deviser of 'A.B.C.' have any idea how it will develop. It will be amusing ; it will not be obvious ; it will make listeners think ; it will be something in the nature of a big adventure.
The signature tune, specially composed by Reginald Foort and Claude Ferring , will be introduced in an ingenious way-a march founded on the letters of the scale, a brass quartet combining with the organ. Then one of the best-known voices on the air will break in with ' Ladies and gentlemen, the BBC presents the ABC'.
Every week the commentator's name will begin with the letter dealt with. Tonight, for instance, it is hoped that it will be A. J. Alan. Various broadcasters will deal with subjects beginning with the letter of the week.
