Here is the first of six broadcasts by Mrs. Anne Beaton , formerly Miss Anne Carr , under which name as lecturer-demonstrator on cookery for a well-known firm for three and a-half years she spoke to 180,000 people in all the principal towns in England, Scotland, and Northern Ireland. When in Manchester she had an audience of 2,400 and spoke to over 10,000 in the week of four demonstrations. She has also lectured on cookery and other subjects in America. Mrs. Beaton was educated at the Lausanne University and in Paris, studied cookery at the Cordon Bleu, and has passed the City and Guilds cookery examination over here.
It is of interest that she ran away from school to go to the war and drove an ambulance in France. She was awarded the Croix de Guerre with star, and has five other decorations. Based on her experiences, she wrote a biographical book ' Fanny Goes to War'. She has had her own dressmaking establishment, and has studied the violin at the A.R.C.M. and painting in Lausanne. She speaks French fluently and some German.

A microphone impression of the annual Wild West show in Alberta, with its parades and races and competitions, its noises and thrills
(The programme arranged by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation)
All the colour and romance of the Western regions of the North American continent are epitomised in what is known the world over as the Calgary ' Stampede ', which lasts five days. Begun as an annual event fifty-four years ago, it offers (amid the sound of thundering hoofs and the beat of Indian tomtoms) a vivid picture of frontier life, -which city dwellers travel thousands of miles to see.
There are all kinds of cowboy sports in which the hard-bitten contestants risk their necks upon wild steers and bucking broncos. Spectators see for themselves what is involved in trying to milk a wild cow. Championships are at stake, including one for steer decorating and another for wild horse riding. A parade of chuck-waggons, cowboys, Indian tribes, Mounted Police, and no fewer than twenty bands, marches for hours through the streets of Calgary on the opening day alone.
