1, ' The Drive to Rochester'
A serial reading by V. C. Clinton -
Here is the first of a new series of readings in which the inimitable adventures of the one and only Pickwick Club will be followed during forthcoming weeks.
V. C. Clinton-Baddeley has gone to pains to select the ripest and liveliest incidents from the posthumous papers of the Club, and presents the first of these this afternoon.
Today you will hear of the formation of the Corresponding Society of the Pickwick Club, and of the memorable journey to Rochester of Samuel Pickwick , Tracy Tupman , Augustus Snodgrass , and Nathaniel Winkle , together with the loquacious stranger who accompanied them. You will hear what they talked about on the way, and how Mr. Tupinan's susceptible heart was stirred by one of the stranger's stories.

Cesar Franck 's Violin Sonata in A was written specially for that great violinist Ysaye and the hardly less distinguished pianist Mme. Bordes-Pene. It is one of Franck's most perfect works, particularly with regard to construction and purity of style. Melodically the whole work grows out of the little figure (D-F sharp-D) which is heard at the beginning of the work. The first movement is full of poetry, the second is an impassioned allegro, and the third an exquisite soliloquy. The fourth consists of a clever and effective piece of writing in canon based on themes from previous movements, after which comes a development section based on all the principal themes of the work, and finally a brilliant conclusion.

' Outside the Class-room '
W. E. Williams
There is little doubt that a new outlook on education is being consolidated today. No longer are the three R's of the curriculum or the four walls of the class-room considered the be-all and end-all of the subject. More and more are class-room walls being broken down, and children encouraged to profit by life outside as well as learning inside. Out-of-school activity is on the increase, and not only school journeys to countries abroad, but also supervised visits to museums, churches, and other places of interest are broadening the minds of the generation to come. Teachers are increasingly ready to sacrifice their time in order to conduct school parties to such places, or to performances of good plays and concerts.
In the studio this evening W. E.
Williams will have with him the same parent who, on February 13, discussed with him problems of homework.

Here is a play that could be produced in no more effective way than on radio. The scene is on board a British submarine, which, caught in the enemy waters of an inland sea by hostile craft, is forced to make a rapid dive to the sea floor. She damages a fin, and in an atmosphere of keen tension, with the dull shock of depth-charges reverberating around her hull, her captain and the ship's company settle down to await the end.
There is bridge, and there is a certain amount of song-though not much of this, as oxygen is running short. It would be unfair to reveal the climax, beyond saying that this occurs when the enemy starts to grapple for the sunken vessel.
