★ by An Old-Timer
On January 4 an old trouper, who had been forty years in the business, gave the first ' Leaves of Memory ' programme under the pseudonym of ' Old-Timer ' and talked to listeners about the old days and old-time music-hall songs, remembered by some, forgotten by others, and unheard by many-old songs that he sang before the microphone.
The programme was his own idea.
He believed that he could put over an entertainment without the use of a name. His fan mail which grew and grew proved him right. He gave a dozen broadcasts and then went off the air. His fan mail keeps on coming.
This afternoon for the first time he is to broadcast on a Sunday, and he will be on the air for the next three Sundays at any rate. Many of the songs he will sing date as far back as 1840 and have been sent to him by listeners.
1—' Christ and Pleasure '
The Rev. Father C. C. Martindale ,
This is the first of a short series of religious talks by a broadcaster already well known to the majority of listeners. The Rev. Father Martindale has an ideal microphone manner, and an unusual gift for expressing great truths in a practical and matter-of-fact way. In this group of talks he will relate Christ's teachings to what may well be described as the three commonest idols of the present day-pleasure, money, and politics.
His two subsequent talks will be broadcast on June 18 and 'June 25.

An appeal on behalf of THE CENTRAL COUNCIL FOR THE
CARE OF CRIPPLES by an UNKNOWN CRIPPLE
In Great Britain there are over 40,000 cripples who, in spite of all that science and surgery can do, must carry throughout their lives the burden of physical disability. Yet, given their chance, they can take their place as self-supporting members of the community. Once trained and placed in the right job, they can and do work as skilfully and as faithfully as their able-bodied fellows. Special training is required, however, if the crippled worker is to attain that high degree of skill which he needs to secure employment.
Funds are urgently needed to provide additional training facilities, and to enable investigation to be made into the various problems connected with the employment of cripples.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to [address removed]
