7—' The Puritans' by Alec Macdonald
While the Rector is struggling with his evening sermon, Michael is busy with what his father jokingly calls an unfitting pursuit for a Sunday afternoon. This leads to a discussion on Puritanism and its origins, and Michael is led back to the days of the Civil War in the seventeenth, century, where he learns not only of the harsher kill-joy side of the Puritan Revolution, but also something of its constructive contribution to the English character.

The Catalonian composer, Robert Gerhard , was born in 1896 at Vails, in the province of Tarragona. From 1916-21 he studied under Felipe Pedrell , the founder of modern Spanish music, and after the latter's death in 1922 Gerhard became a pupil of Schonberg in Vienna and Berlin until 1928. Robert Gerhard has written a number of interesting works, including the Trio in A flat, to be heard this evening, the Violin Sonata, and the ballet Ariel, founded on Shakespeare's The Tempest, which was first performed at the Festival of the International Society for Contemporary Music at Barcelona in 1936. Robert Gerhard is coming over to
England in October to conduct two of his own orchestral works which are to be broadcast in a concert of Spanish music.

An appeal on behalf of the WAYFARERS' SUNDAY ASSOCIATION, by MAURICE M. BEAR
The Wayfarers' Sunday Association was founded nine years ago by Mrs. Maurice Bear. At that time very few clubs were open on Sunday, and young people of both sexes, many of them working far away from home, had nowhere to go but into the streets and nothing to do in their leisure hours. Though cinemas and dance halls have increased everywhere, Wayfarer centres are as crowded as ever. They provide amusement and opportunities for meeting friends in pleasant and wholesome surroundings, and the influence of the spirit of unselfish help for other Wayfarers on the highway of life creates a very happy atmosphere.
Funds available are insufficient even to maintain the five existing centres, while many more are needed.
