Penge Congregational Church stands in the High Street of a busy London suburb. A service from the church was broadcast for the first time in the Regional programme in 1935. The Rev. Ernest J. Barson , who is giving the address, has been the church's only minister since its inception. He celebrated the twenty-ninth anniversary of his settlement in March of this year. He is one of the governors of Hackney and New College (now New College), London, a Congregational training college, and he is a director of the London Missionary Society. He has also been Chairman of the London Congregational Union.

Ⓓ Plants for the Water Garden
C. H. Middleton and R. H. Perry
Once again C. H. Middleton is to bring to the microphone Reginald Perry , son of the famous water-garden specialist, Amos Perry , and a well-known water-garden specialist himself ; and they are to discuss the question of plants most suitable for the water garden and the best way to make a simple ornamental pool for immediate effect.
Few hobbies are more interesting or less troublesome than a well-cared-for pool or aquarium, in which both plant and animal life are properly balanced. Plant life is essential to the life of fish, which add such beauty to the pool. Those who have been to Wisley will remember the lovely water-lily pool on the fringe of the woods.

Francis Wei , Ph.D.,
Principal of the Central China
Dr. Wei is principal of the Central China University at Wuchang, Hankow, the only centre of Christian Higher Education in a region with a population of one hundred million people. The institution is supported by a number of British and American missionary societies, the London Missionary Society and the Methodist Missionary Society being among them.
Besides being a Chinese scholar of high standing, Dr. Wei is a Ph.D. of London University, and an M.A. of Harvard. He was at one time chairman of the National Christian Council of China, and is now engaged in a lecture tour in this country on behalf of the United Committee for Christian Universities for China. Dr. Wei believes that the Christian Colleges in China should be the best and most efficient educational centres in the country. He is to tell listeners how higher education in general has developed in China during the past, twenty years, and how, despite the difficulties with which China is now faced, plans are still being forwarded.
Bicentenary of the first landing of George Whitefield in North America on May 7, 1738.
An exchange of talks between The Rt. Hon. D. Lloyd George, O.M., M.P. speaking from England, and Harold Willis Dodds, Ph.D., LL.D., Litt.D., President of Princeton University, speaking from America.
On May 7, 1738, George Whitefield landed in America. At once his influence there was as great as it had been in England; in his New England campaign alone, 30,000 persons were said to have been brought into a new and vital religious experience. But what he is most remembered for today across the Atlantic is the fact that out of his work arose many of the first educational institutions in America, notably the Universities of Pennsylvania and Princeton.
Mr. Lloyd George's broadcast will be heard on both sides of the Atlantic, as will the American reply, which will follow immediately.
