' Flowers in the Sick-Room'
Marguerite James , F.R.H.S.
When we hear that anyone is ill our first thought is to send them flowers-and flowers, that essential of the sick-room, is to be the subject of today's talk by the author of 'The Family Garden'. Marguerite James is a Fellow of the Royal Horticultural Society ; she lives in the country and for her garden. Next week Mrs. Marian Cutler , who has already given two talks in this series, will give the first of three talks on the care of old people.

' ... In Rope I have gone all out to write a horror play and make your flesh creep..... If Rope is accused of delving in morbid psychologies and so forth, of being anything but a sheer thriller, of being anything but a De Quinceyish essay in the macabre, I am at a wretched loss.' -Patrick Hamilton.

Mrs Sidney Webb
How far can a nation combine the maximum of national efficiency with the maximum of individual liberty ? This is probably the central problem in European politics today, and every Friday evening in this important series authoritative speakers are discussing it. So far, the systems of government at work in Italy and France have been surveyed. Tonight, Mrs. Sidney Webb is going to speak on Russia. In recent years, as most people know, Mrs. Sidney Webb and her husband, Lord Passfield, have made a close study of the Russian experiment. After Mrs. Webb has spoken Mr. Wilson Harris will question her on what she has said.

Darnton's ' Swansong ' was written in 1935 and is the composer's most ambitious and important work. It was written specially for May Blyth after he had heard her sing Maria in the BBC's concert performance of Alban Berg 's Wozzeck. Listeners will note many distinctive features about the scoring ; for instance, the third song is scored for two unaccompanied bassoons almost throughout.
The poems by Robert Nichols were first published in 1920 in a volume, entitled ' Aurelia and Other Poems', which was dedicated to Philip Heseltine. 1. The poet proclaims his swansong. No sound disturbs the winter's wood but ' Death's hushed footstep drawing near '. 2. ' 0 Nightingale, my heart, How sad thou art!' No more will it sing. 3. ' It is still under the pines ... The heart beats heavily, sad, and slow '. 4. Memory, Solitude and Sorrow are invoked in turn. 5. The poet's soul is bidden to put by the sun, the wine, the rose, ' the courteous tire ' and the lute and to take leave of friends ...
