Appeal on behalf of Red Hill School by the Rev. Joseph McCulloch
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]
Among the by-products of our civilisation is the maladjusted child, incapable of coming to terms with the world in which he has to live. He inhabits a shadow land merging on its frontiers into delinquency. The facilities in existence for the psychological treatment of this kind of maladjustment are limited.
For twenty years Red Hill School has pioneered with success in this field. Its work involves the personal assistance needed by such children and the specialised educational attention that is necessary to bring out latent ability.
Pupils are received from all parts of the country and this appeal is for finance for enlarging the school.

Adapted as a serial in twelve episodes by H. Oldfield Box from Anthony Trollope 's novel
' The Prime Minister '
Episode Five
Characters in order of speaking:
Narrator, Noel Iliff
Produced by David H. Godfrey
Ferdinand Lopez has been successful in marrying Emily Wharton ; but Mr. Wharton, still mistrusting Lopez and determined that none of his fortune shall pass into the man's hands, has given his daughter no dowry.
Lopez, now on his honeymoon in Italy, is therefore in a considerable dilemma, for he has married Emily posing as a man of wealth. But a sum of money is urgently needed to support those heavy speculations by which he intends to become rich. Emily therefore must be used as a means of coaxing money out of her father; and Lopez has already prevailed on her to ask for thiee thousand pounds.

Songs from the cycle
' A Shropshire Lad '
(poems by A. E. Housman ) sung by Henry Cummings (baritone)
Leonard Isaacs (piano)
Lovliest of trees
When I was one-and-twenty
There pass the careless people
The street sounds to the soldiers tread
On the idle hill of summer
White in the moon the long road lies
Think no more, lad; laugh, be jolly The lads in their hundreds
