For more than 230 years, since the foundation of the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts in 1701, there has steadily accumulated a great mass of documents which forms as it were a history-from a unique angle-of the expansion of the British Empire.
Today's programme will illustrate the work of the S.P.G. in the American Colonies during the eighteenth century among the English Colonists, the Red Indians, and the Negro slaves. With the culminating drama of the War of Independence the Society's work ceased in America, but the Episcopal Church of the United States still acknowledges that it owes its existence ' under God, to the long-continued nursing care of the Venerable Society'.
A second programme, to be broadcast next Sunday, will illustrate the expansion of the Society's work overseas in the nineteenth century.

Lekeu's Sonata in G, like the sonatas of Delius, is a lyrical fantasy rather than a sonata in the strictly classical sense. Lekeu was a young Belgian musician of the school of Cesar Franck, a composer of the most brilliant promise whose career was cut short by typhoid fever in 1894, when he was only twenty-four years of age. This sonata, dedicated to Ysaye, was his last completed work and was not published till thirteen years after his death.

An appeal on behalf of THE RADIUM INSTITUTE AND THE MOUNT VERNON HOSPITAL FOR
CANCER by Viscount KNOLLYS , M.B.E.,
The Radium Institute and the Mount Vernon Hospital are together engaged in the treatment of cancer and in research directed to the prevention and to the mitigation of this distressing disease. The central department is in London ; the hospital, which was established in 1861 at Hampstead, is now situated at Northwood, Middlesex. 165 beds are provided.
The Radium Institute was founded in London in order that the value of radium and its derivatives as a curative agent for malignant cases might be demonstrated, and has accomplished much notable work in this direction This work is now being further enlarged in the light of the fuller knowledge which research has revealed.
Patients are received from every county in the British Isles, from the colonies, and from the Dominions. In its laboratories much important work is being carried out, and the results are at the disf osal of members of the medical staff in the treatment of their patients.
In order to carry on this essential work an annual income of £50,000 is needed.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to [address removed].
