N. E. Odell
It is generally agreed that modern mountaineering started in 1886, with the first ascent of Nape's Needle on Great Gable, Cumberland. Just a year ago-on April 12, 1936-W. P. Haskett-Smith repeated his pioneer ascent of fifty years before. This afternoon N. E. Odell will discuss the achievements and surviving problems of modern climbing. He is one of the best known of present-day mountaineers, and has had experience of climbing in many parts of the world. He was a member of the ill-fated Everest Expedition of 1924, when Mallory and Irvine-died on the mountain. During that expedition Mr. Odell spent a night on Everest completely alone at a height of 25,300 feet.

A series of talks about the countryside
Rooks and Rookeries
Some rooks remain in their rookery during the winter, but most of them roost in deep woods. They pay occasional visits to their rookery early in the year, before beginning to build in earnest in March. They differ in habit from crows, and Eric Parker will tell listeners how to distinguish a rook from a crow. He will say something about the food rooks eat and discuss the question as to whether they do harm or good.

The Prime Minister, the Right Hon.
STANLEY BALDWIN speaking at the dinner given in his honour, from Grosvenor House, Park Lane
Listeners are to hear the speech of the Prime Minister at the dinner at Grosvenor House given by the Federation of British Industries to him as a personal tribute. It is not to pay honour to the Rt. Hon.
Stanley Baldwin as a statesman, as a Prime Minister, or as a Conservative, but to pay tribute to him as a man. Lord Hirst, President of the Federation, has invited representatives of all sections of the business life of the country to associate themselves with the Federation in this rare compliment. The Federation represents the manufacturing side of British industry, but other sides will be represented at the dinner. Nearly a thousand people will be there, among them representatives of the Chambers of Commerce, the Chamber of Shipping, the Chairman of the Joint Stock Banks, the Bar (represented by the Lord Chief Justice, the President of the Bar Council, and the Chairman of the Law Society), Members of the Import Duties Advisory Committee, the Chairmen of the Railway Companies, and the Stock Exchange.
