Mr. Gaddum will try to dispel the illusion that all snakes are dangerous and should be killed at sight. He will describe the harmless grass snake and tell listeners how they can distinguish it from the adder, which is the only dangerous snake in the British Isles. Finally he will talk about the adder, and will endeavour to prove that it is not so bad as it is often painted. Teachers will find it helpful to have illustrations of a grass snake, and an adder or viper, to show their classes.

' Women at Work'
The true place of women in business and the professions is still a matter of controversy, but this time last year the French Government made an interesting contribution to the subject by appointing three women as Under-Secretaries of State. Mrs. Strachey will discuss the significance of these appointments, and will describe some of the problems facing the woman who earns her own living. She has had long experience on various appointment boards of the conditions met with by women who work, and of their difficulties; and is therefore able to take a practical view of things as they are.
Conducted by Bela Bizony from the Hungarian Restaurant

When Schubert died, his Unfinished Symphony, which had never been performed during his lifetime, lay hidden somewhere in the town of Gratz, of whose Musical Society Schubert was a member. It was for this Society that he is supposed to have composed the B minor Symphony. Ultimately, after years of fruitless search, the manuscript of the Unfinished Symphony was found.
Why it remained ' unfinished ', or whether, indeed, the composer's ultimate intention was ever to finish it at all, can never be known. We do know, however, that it was the work of a new Schubert, a genius for the first time probing the remoter depths of a mature imagination.

A series of talks about the countryside
What are the chief differences between a snake and a lizard? Is there any truth in the assertion that adders will swallow their young to protect them from danger? To what size will a grass snake grow, and why do these snakes occasionally congregate in large numbers ? These are some of the questions that Eric Parker will answer this evening.
