Ⓓ From page 9 of 'New Every Morning'
As you look round you in January it would seem that everything is done for, that the trees and hedges will never throw out a leaf again, the grass come green or the birds Sing. Yet everywhere, if you look close enough, all kinds of things not very apparent are happening. This is to be the theme of Julian Tenny son talk-he will discuss birds especially. His articles in the Times,
Country Life, and the Field are well known for their country flavour.

Stories that are History
' The Story of Mahommed '
HUGH Ross WILLIAMSON
1 Great is Allah! Great is Allah
I bear witness that there is no God but Allah,
I bear witness that Mahommed is the prophet of Allah.
Come unto prayer. Come unto
Great is Allah Great is Allah!
There is no God but Allah.
Prayer is better than sleep, Prayer is better than sleep.'
This was the cry of a new religion which sprang up in the East about 600 years after Christ, and soon became one of the leading religions ol the world. You will hear today the story of Mahommed, the camel-driver, and the new things that he taught, and how he founded a new faith.
' Food Chains '
H. MUNRO Fox , F.R.S.
Animals either feed on plants or else they feed on other animals which eat plants. Often there are chains of animals, each link in the chain feeding on the next link, while the last animal link in the chain eats plants. For instance, lions eat zebras, and zebras eat grass. In fresh water, tiny pond-weeds are eaten by water-fleas which are the food of minnows, while minnows are eaten by trout, and trout in turn are gobbled up by herons. Animals which kill and eat others are usually bigger than their prey, but the prey are usually more numerous than the animals which eat them. This is an outline of the talk that Professor Munro Fox is to give today.

' Successful Farming'
W. S. Mansfield
Successful farming is a problem that has exercised the human mind since the dawn of history. At all times and in all ages there have been people who have been successful in the fickle art of agriculture. Today Mr. Mansfield is to discuss this subject in relation to present-day ideas. It is his farewell talk so far as this series is concerned. A great number of listeners will miss his talks on Wednesday evenings, but he has once again to devote his whole attention to the interests of the Cambridge University School of Agriculture. He will be followed next week by another popular broadcaster, Anthony Hurd.
