An appeal on behalf of THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF DISCHARGED PRISONERS' AID SOCIETIES (INC.) by The Rt. Hon. SIR SAMUEL HOARE , Bt., G.C.S.I., G.B.E., C.M.G., Secretary of State for Home Affairs
(Not to be broadcast by Scottish National)
It was to be expected that when a descendant of Elizabeth Fry became - Home Secretary, the English prison system would be overhauled. Sir Samuel Hoare means to make English prisons as reformative as possible -hence his great interest in what happens to men and women on discharge. With His Majesty the King as Patron, the National Association appeals, this evening, on behalf of nearly fifty voluntary Prisoners' Aid Societies throughout England and Wales. While the work is strictly undenominational — denominational societies work in fullest co-operation -need always comes before creed. Under the leadership of the National Association, all these societies are preparing to play their part in the new penal reform proposals.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to The Rt. Hon. Sir Samuel Hoare , Bt., N.A.D.P.A.S., [address removed]

Tonight Les Misérables comes to an end, and the heroic, persecuted figure of Jean Valjean finds its tranquillity.
During recent weeks you have heard how the peasant Valjean, ceaselessly harassed and pursued by Police Inspector Javert, met with countless adventures in his search for happiness, both for himself and for his adopted child Cosette.
You will remember how Valjean saved the life of Marius, a young revolutionary, in the émeutes of 1832, and how Marius, not realising this, turned against his rescuer on discovering that he was an ex-convict. You also heard how Javert killed himself rather than pursue Valjean further, and how Cosette and Marius were married, leaving Valjean alone and friendless.
While Valjean was serving a second sentence on the slave galleys, little Cosette lived with an innkeeper, Thenardier, who now appears again.
Tonight you will hear how
Thenardier, seeking to better himself, tries to surprise Marius by telling him who Valjean is.
