Mr. Jennings will repeat his talk on this subject which was broadcast on October 11 in the National programme
In this talk, which makes its appeal to listeners who have an interest in the making of literature as well as in the reading of it, Humphrey Jennings , who has produced films, helped to organise a Surrealist exhibition, and contributed to ' Mass Observation ', a book on the Coronation, ingeniously argues that words belong to no particular person, and that plagiarism-in poetry at any rate-is not necessarily wrong. He examines the question particularly in relation to Gray's Elegy gives abundant examples of plagiarism in the ' Elegy ' from other poets, and stoutly defends it. Gray, he says, wished to employ plagiarism as a method of writing poetry.

H. Maxwell Beerbohm (for that is his real name)-Max the irrepressible, the light of touch, the inimitable, the insouciant, and the impertinent '—needs no introduction to British listeners. No one who heard this talk on ' A Small Boy Seeing Giants', when he gave it in July, 1936, will willingly miss this repeat of it, while those who failed to hear it then will certainly be glad to have this opportunity of listening to one of the most delightful essays in reminiscence ever broadcast.

Flora Collins was born of American pioneer stock on an Indian reservation in Northern Idaho. As a child she travelled in a 'covered wagon ' to Southern Idaho where she was subsequently discovered by a well-known teacher of singing, Mine. Lillie Sang-Collins , with whom Miss
Collins afterwards lived and studied. While still at college in Idaho Miss Collins began her career with scenes in costume from such operas as Carmen, Orpheus, Samson and Delilah, and Aida; and when at length the family moved to New York she made her debut at a recital in the Town Hall.
Later she appeared in the University Concert Series with George Barrere , singing at Yale, Harvard, Princeton, and other Universities. She was also engaged to sing the role of Alain in the Croisade des
Enfants by Gabriel Pierne in the Mozart Festival at Harrisburg. In 1930 Flora Collins won the Schubert Memorial Award in competition with singers from all parts of the United States. This entitled her to an appearance with the New York Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra at Carnegie Hall. In the following year she married an Englishman and since then has made her home in London, returning from time to time to the United States for concert tours.

Introduced by F. H. Grisewdod
Every week, in this feature which is rivalling in entertainment and popularity any series in the BBC, big names in the world's news come to the microphone and express something of what they are doing in the world going by. In the monthly broadcast devoted to the country a fortnight ago, the famous sculptress Clare Sheridan , the first white woman ever actually
- to have lived with Indians in their encampment, spoke of her stay in a Red Indian reservation from which she had just returned ; the author of ' Down the Garden Path ' spoke about gardens as only Beverley Nichols can ; Henry Wright , one of the few men alive whose fathers were born in the eighteenth century, spoke of his boyhood on a Cumberland farm in the 'sixties ; and the author of ' Strawberry Roan '-that fine broadcaster and practical farmer, A. G. Sfreet-gave a diary of scenes and events in the countryside.
Personalities as famous will be coming to the microphone tonight.
