In the second television demonstration by the Women's League of Health and Beauty - the first took place on December 8 - the girls will be led by Peggy St. Lo instead of their usual leader, Prunella Stack, who at the moment is studying methods of physical culture in Germany. Altogether there will be ten girls taking part. Mrs. A. J. Cruickshank, who will give a commentary, is the sister of the founder of the League, which started with sixteen members in 1930, and now has a membership of nearly 100,000.

Frances Day's blonde beauty will once again be seen today in a bill of international stars. Like Claire Luce, she comes from America, where she appeared with the late Texas Guinan, and quickly sprang to fame as a cabaret artist. She made her first appearance on the London stage at the Hippodrome in 1932 as Molly Harper in "Out of the Bottle". Since then she has been in big West-End shows like "How Do You Do?" and "Jill Darling", in which she played the part of Jill Sonning, and several films.
Cyril Ritchard is an Australian. He first came to London in 1925 to play in the revival of "Bubbly". He is a versatile artist who can dance, sing, and act in comedy or straight parts-he was, film-goers will recall, the villain in the great Hitchcock film, "Blackmail". His many successes include Charlot's Revue, "R.S.V.P.", "Lady Luck", "So This is Love", "Love Lies", and "The Love Race".
Anthony Tudor and Maude Lloyd are two dancers of the Mercury Ballet. Viewers will remember that Maude Lloyd appeared at Alexandra Palace last November; and Anthony Tudor in January, in a programme called "Paleface" in which also figured Bobby Tranter and his Girls.
