' What Insects do—Locusts'
H. B. JOHNSTON
The speaker this morning is one of the world's greatest experts on the locust problem, and recently represented Uganda and Tanganyika at the International Locust Conference in Brussels.
It is probably true that locusts have plagued man as long as he has existed on the earth. They are older than the pyramids or the Stone
Age. While modern methods of fighting them have done a lot to combat the menace in certain parts of the world, they still remain the terror of the hot-country farmer.
There are few creatures that multiply at so astonishing a rate, and the Arabs have a saying to the effect that the locust lays ninety-nine eggs, for if it laid a hundred the world could not contain all the tribe that would be produced.
The speaker will describe some ravages by locusts that he has seen, and will tell you about three particular methods used to combat them.

Variations on a Once Popular
Once again Haydn Wood comes to the microphone and conducts a programme of his own compositions, including the first performance of a suite ' East of Suez '.
The programme as a whole shows
Haydn Wood in the light of a serious composer. His lightest effort, however, is the ' Variations on a Once-Popular Humorous Song', which was originally written as a musical jest. It is based on a comic song which once enjoyed great popularity -' If you want to know the time, ask a p'liceman '. This tune is subjected to seven variations and a symphonically extended finale. Although the whole work sets out to entertain rather than to uplift, throughout the music is characterised by its fastidious and skilful workmanship.
