' Silage for salvation ' by Professor J. A. Scott Watson and Clyde Higgs
This evening Professor Scott Watson is going to talk about the successes and failures in silage-making and he will have with him Clyde Higgs , who besides being one of the largest milk producers in Warwickshire has for several years been virtually independent of imported feeding stuffs. He has made silage in all manner of ways and will give the benefit of his experiences together with his costings.
Professor Scott Watson , who is well known to listeners for his farming talks, has had vast practical experience in managing St. John's College Farm at Long Wittenham, Oxfordshire.

Leader, Laurance Turner
Conductor, Gideon Fagan
The first of Liszt's four Mephisto Waltzes is one of the composer's masterpieces. Recently discussing the work, Ernest Newman described its programme as follows: ' Faust and Mephistopheles have arrived at a village inn at which a dance following a rustic wedding is in progress. Criticising the music of the peasant players as being too ancemic, Mephisto takes the. fiddle out of the hands of one of them and plays the company a waltz of such seductive sensuality that it demoralises them all. Faust and the bride dance madly out through the open door, not reappearing until, with the cool of the dawn and the morning song of the birds, sanity and something of repentance return to at any rate one of them.'
