' Stories that are History'
' Roderick and the Moors '
The Mahommedans were great conquerors. In the eighth century they crossed over the sea from Africa into Spain, where their leader Tarik won many victories. We call the Mahommedan conquerors of Spain the Moors. Today's story is about Roderick, the Visigoth, King of Spain, and how he lost his life at the hands of the Moors. It is an old legend of an enchanted tower and a locked door.
' Nor shall it ever ope, old records say,
Save to a king the last of all his line.'

' Plagues of Animals '
H. MUNRO Fox , F.R.S.
If all the young of any kind of animal were to live, that kind would soon become so numerous that it would be a plague. But rabbits are killed by stoats, field-mice by owls, antelopes by lions, and so on ; therefore their numbers do not increase. Sometimes, however, the flesh-eating animals cannot kill enough of their prey to keep the number down, and plagues of rabbits, mice, antelopes, and other animals result. The overcrowded animals then catch diseases and die off. So enemies are necessary to keep plant-eating animals healthy. Plagues of some animals come at regular intervals every few years. This is an outline of the talk that Dr. Munro Fox is to give today.

Anthem, When to the Temple Mary went (Eccard)
When to the Temple Mary went, and brought the Holy Child,
Him did the aged Simeon see, as it had been revealed
He took up Jesus in his arms, and blessing God he said :
In peace I now depart, my Saviour having seen,
The Hope of Israel, the Light of men. Help now Thy servants, gracious Lord, that we may ever be
As once the faithful Simeon was, rejoicing but in Thee ;
And when we must from earth departure take,
May gently fall asleep, and with Thee wake.

' Where does Farming stand today ?'
Anthony Hurd , who gave the farming talks in the autumn of 1936, is to give the first of twelve talks that will deal mainly with the political aspect of farming. He hopes to bring to the microphone from time to time the chairman of various Marketing Boards.
It is eleven years since
Anthony Hurd started farming on his own account near Marlborough in Wilt-shire. He has taken a full part in the agricultural activities of the county. Combining journalism with farming, he was for many years Farm Editor of The Field. He is Agricultural Correspondent of The Times and Editor of Farmers'
