' Two Brave Indians '
From ' Yams on Fighters of India's Foes' by Basil Mathews , read by Carleton Hobbs
Listeners may remember Carleton Hobbs 's reading of Basil Mathews s short account of the life and adventures of John Williams under the title of ' If Only I had a Ship '. Today he will read about two remarkable but little-known converts to Christianity.
Jesumani was dedicated to the devil-priestess of an Indian village when she was discovered by an Englishwoman and her brother. She who once was the ' voice' of the Cholera Goddess is today a living witness to the Spirit. ' Mr. Stand-fast ', of Kashmir, a Moslem boy who lived up to the motto ' In all things be men ', is the hero of this second selected story.

'The Black Sheep'
This evening the Rev. Mr. Parish will consult Mr. Bartington about an unfortunate accident in which he became involved while cycling in the country. He is not so much concerned with enforcing his rights as in knowing the liability of a neighbouring farmer for leaving his sheep out on the highway.

An appeal on behalf of THE MOTHERCRAFT TRAINING
SOCIETY by S. P. B. MAIS
The Mothercraft Training Society was founded in 1918 by the late Sir Truby King , who came over from New Zealand at the request of a committee, of which the late Lord Plunket was chairman. He, as Governor-General of New Zealand, and Lady Plunket had had opportunities of seeing what Dr. King's beliefs were doing for the mothers and children of that Dominion.
The M.T.S. Headquarters are at
Highgate, and there are centres at Earl's Court, Kingstqn-on-Thames, Cardiff, Newport, Cambridge, Brighton, and Oxford.
The aims of the Society are to impress upon women the importance of health, to indicate a sense of the responsibilities of motherhood and to impress upon mothers, and mothers-to-be, the vital need for the healthy fulfilment of the natural calb of maternity. It is also the object of the society to train and employ qualified nurses to give advice and assistance on matters affecting the health and well-being of women both before and after their children are born.

Faure had a great power of lyrical expression. His music abounds with beautiful and finely drawn melodies. A consummate craftsman and a harmonist of considerable range and subtlety, everything he wrote is highly polished and designed with an unerring sense of balance and clarity of style. Indeed, Debussy once said that the graceful fleeting lines of Faure's music may be compared to the gesture of a beautiful woman without either suffering by the comparison '. These qualities characterise the Cello Sonata No. 2 in G minor, which was composed in 1921, when Faure was seventy-six years of age.
