2.5 Travel Talk
' Southern India'
Listeners are to hear more of Captain McDermott's adventures during the world tour that he recently completed. He went to the broadcasting studio at Madras, listened to a broadcast to schools there, and could not understand a word of it because it was given in Tamil, the language that most of the school-children speak. Then, after visiting the strange and wild fisher folk of the district, he started on his journey northwards again. Today, among other things, he will describe an Indian railway station, and what it is like to travel on an Indian train.

Of all the days within the week
I dearly love but one day,
And that's the day that comes between Saturday and a Monday.
That is the motif of this rollicking revue which will introduce all the different people in a typical office-the shorthand-typists, the cleaner, the office boy, the boss, and so forth -and will show how they spend their week-ends. On Saturday evening some of them go to a dance. On Sunday the freedom from office routine continues : there is tennis for some, the river for others. Without a doubt this Friday-afternoon revue should make listeners long for tomorrow.

C. H Middleton and Courtney Page
C. H Middleton is to bring to the microphone one of the most important figures in the rose world to talk about roses. Courtney Page has been Secretary of the National Rose Society for over twenty years. When he took over, the membership was 3,000; under his initiative and enthusiasm it has grown to 15,000.
In 1920, a well-known rose grower at Portadown, Northern Ireland, introduced a new rose and called it after him. The 'Courtney Page ' is scarlet-crimson, sweet-scented, and was very popular in its day. A drawing of it is reproduced on the previous page.
