The elephant's reputation for intelligence is well known. It is not so commonly realised that some ele- phants show surprising individual traits. They may be, in a word, ' personalities '. Frank Melland , who was in Central Africa for over a quarter of a century, has had a great experience of the wild elephant and its ways. He is going to tell some stories about the elephants' he has known.

' Whitstable and Native Oysters '
J. B. Warner
A fortnight ago an account was broadcast of the Selsey fishery in this series which is telling listeners something about the activities of the country districts of the counties not far from London. Today they are to hear an account of the Whitstable Oyster fishery from two men who were both born in Whitstable and know the industry by heart. Mr. Warner is still in the fishery. Mr. Waters has retired. He also, by the way, was on the 'hoys' that used to carry goods from London to Whitstable in the old days.

Delius's opera Irmelin was composed in 1890-2 and throughout his life it remained in manuscript and, as far as can be ascertained, never received a performance. The libretto by Delius himself is based on a fairy tale which, according to Philip Heseltine, is ' dramatically rather below the level of the conventional operatic text. Though the music was much praised by Grieg and Messager at the time of its composition, its performance was never seriously contemplated by the composer '.
