' The Swing of the Seasons '
Marooned in the Antarctic '
Here is a talk about a very unpleasant thing-being marooned in the Antarctic-by a man who was with Shackleton's 1913 Expedition ; during which the Great War broke out. The story he has to tell is of adventure in the grimmest circumstances-of a fine hut to live in but no fuel to warm it ; of men who became their own tailors and their own cobblers, too ; of great hardship, and of rescue that came at last.

Athens or Sparta ? Are the forms of government which these ancient communities represented alternatives ? Or is it possible to mix the advantages of both forms in one State ? This ancient problem of politics is being posed to the Europe of today in new terms. How far do the different European countries of 1938 combine efficiency as a nation with the liberty of the individual citizen?
Italy was the first great power to be examined, last week, in a series of talks surveying this question. Tonight Percy Philip will talk about France, and wiil be questioned afterwards by Wilson Harris , Editor of The Spectator. Mr. Philip is an experienced journalist, and for the past fifteen years has been Paris correspondent of The New York Times.
