This afternoon the Angel will pilot his charges, Mark and Prudence, through the first book of Samuel and on to the end of the first chapter of the second book. It should not be difficult for him to conjure up the great judge who established Saul in the monarchy. He will introduce the children to David, and bring out, in the words and scenes of the Bible, Saul's jealousy of him and the eternal friendship between David and Jonathan. With commentary and music the scenes will be dramatically expressed, and will close with the great poem in which David laments over Saul and Jonathan.
A Short Story by L. A. G. Strong , read by the author
Here is a human story, with very great appeal, that centres round two Irish boys, Johnny catching 'prongs (prawns) by the sea wall at Kings-town, his elder brother Dan trying to persuade him to come home. It is included in a collected volume of stories by L. A. G. Strong , called
' The English Captain '. Two books of his have been published this year: * The Swift Shadow a a novel, and ' The Minstrel Boy ', a biography of Tom Moore.

Edmund Rubbra's Symphony was composed during the period April 1935 and January 1937, and first performed in April 1937 under Sir Adrian Boult at a BBC Concert of Contemporary Music. In an article in the Radio Times covering this performance Robin Hull said that "The writing throughout is essentially contrapuntal, taut and economical in effect, and marked by the steady growth and variation of ideas that the musical impulse dictates".
