The Rector is hearing Michael his Catechism. That difficult duty towards my neighbour' proves a stumbling block, as usual, and Michael artfully leads his father away to telling him how in Edward VI's reign the English Prayer Book came into being. In the course of his story, the Rector gives Michael a glimpse into the past, and we see the new Book being introduced to the parishioners of four hundred years ago. Listeners may find it useful to have a copy of the Prayer Book at hand.

An adventure in Siam
'...I thought I had been hooked up in some of these thorn bushes and I started to kick to release myself. But to my horror, at about the fifth attempt, flying past me at about elbow height I saw the tail of a nasty, green, thickish snake. I thought to myself: " Good heavens I have not been caught by the thorns, I have been bitten." '
Frank Harrison was right. He had been bitten, and bitten badly. In his foot were two punctures about an inch and a half apart. There was a doctor seventeen miles away, but the road in the rainy season was almost impassable. Death seemed inevitable. How he recovered through the unorthodox medical advice of Ah Tung, the mine overseer, is the subject of this talk, a nightmare experience the victim will never forget. Frank Harrison 's recovery depended largely on a prize cockerel which was used for blood transfusion. After three days in bed and six weeks' rest, he was, except for terrifying dreams, completely cured.

The members of the Modern Wind Quintet are drawn from London's three leading orchestras-BBC Symphony, London Philharmonic, and London Symphony. Formed in 1932 for the purpose of creating interest in the large repertory of classical and modern chamber music for wind instruments, the Modern Wind Quintet spares no effort to attain perfection of ensemble and a standard of performance that is usually associated with the string quartet.

An appeal on behalf of MARGATE AND DISTRICT GENERAL
HOSPITAL, by Sir CHARLES A. BATHO , Bart.
Although the present hospital in Margate has been in existence for only seven years the building is already inadequate to meet the needs of the district. It has been decided to erect a separate nurses' home. The quarters at present occupied by the nurses can then be converted and utilised for additional patients' beds. The appeal is for funds to meet the estimate of £20,000.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to [address removed]
