The Pequod is about to leave the Indian Ocean and is on her way through the Malay Archipelago to the Japanese grounds. In the Straits of Sunda she comes upon a remarkable concourse of whales-vast numbers of them going about their everyday business, as the crews of the boats can see by looking over the gunwale into the limpid water. It is so clear that they can see small whales being suckled. This instalment describes what befell the Pequod in this extraordinary place.
2.5 World History
' A Roman Emperor: Hadrian'
E. A. CRADDOCK
During the Empire of Hadrian in the second century after Christ the Roman Empire reached the height of its power and grandeur. It is generally accepted that Hadrian himself was one of the greatest emperors who ever lived. In this afternoon's broadcast two dramatic interludes will give listeners an impression of the atmosphere that surrounded this great leader. In the first, a scene set in the Imperial Palace at Rome will show in what esteem he was held by his advisers. The second scene will take place in an encampment behind one of the numerous walls that he built, and is a reconstruction of a true incident in which a mad slave attempted to kill the Emperor.

Mouvement (Images, Book 1) played by Frank Laffitte (pianoforte)
Although an Englishman by birth, Frank Laffitte is in upbringing and outlook closely allied to the French, for he comes of a French family and for some years came under the influence of that great French conductor, Pierre Monteux. He has, therefore, a deep insight into and understanding of the spirit of French music, and as an interpreter of Debussy's music he has few equals. During his tours in various parts of Europe and America it was his playing of Debussy's music that aroused the greatest enthusiasm among critics and audiences.
Laffitte studied for the most part at the Guildhall School of Music, where he won a scholarship and several prizes, including the Gold Medal. Later he studied under Katharine Goodson.
