' How shall we feed our dairy cows ? '
W. B. Mercer
The dislocation of wartime farming has been nowhere more acute than in Cheshire. Here, on the rich pastures, the dairying and- cheese-making farmer has traditionally processed imported foods. Today he is faced with the problem of supplying his own fodder.
W. B. Mercer, who will discuss the problems of the dairy farmer, was in peace-time a well-known broadcaster in the North Region and is now Executive Officer of the Cheshire War Agricultural Committee. m

Two hundred years ago in the village of Walthamstow, Joseph Jeffries , a retired butcher, was murdered. He had been shot in the head whilst in bed asleep. Elizabeth Jeffries, his niece, and John Swan, his gardener, were accused. According to the defence, thieves had broken into the house and stolen some silver which had been found in a pond nearby.
Here is the story of the trial, which opened on Wednesday, March 11, 1752, and lasted but an hour before the jury returned their verdict.

Conductor, Sir Adrian Boult
Sir Arnold Bax , whose Three Pieces for Orchestra, Overture, Elegy, and Rondo, were first performed at a Promenade Concert in 1929, has of late years produced many works of outstanding importance, both for orchestra and for chamber music combinations.
Edmund Rubbra was born in 1901 at Northampton, and in spite of the difficulties of earning a living at an early age-he was obliged to help his family by running errands after school hours-he found time for constant practice at the piano and for the study of composition.
With the help of Cyril Scott, he eventually entered the Royal College of Music, where he studied composition under Hoist, Ireland and Vaughan Williams, and counterpoint under R. 0. Morris. He has written a considerable number of works, including an opera, three symphonies, and several smaller works for orchestra, chamber music, and songs.
For further details concerning
Rubbra's Third Symphony see ' Radio Music ' on page 5.
