A novel by John P. Marquand adapted as a serial in twelve parts by H. Oldfield Box
8-' She's your sister not my sister'
Other parts played by members of the BBC Drama Repertory Company Produced by Wilfrid Grantham
That new play, in its try-out at Boston, had proved a flop, and not all Jeffrey Wilson's skill as a play-doctor could rescue it. But Jeffrey's visit to Boston had not proved entirely useless. It had given him the chance of running over to Harvard and seeing his son Jim, about whom, with the war going the way it was over in Europe, he was so anxious.
Back in New York, in accordance with his promise to Jim, he has taken Sally Sales out to lunch-and so made the acquaintance of the girl with whom Jim is so much in love.

by Sir Edward Appleton G.B.E., K.C.B., F.R.S. ,
3-Science for its Own Sake
The pure scientist or natural philosopher seeks to find out what nature is like; he also tries to understand why nature is like what it is. He is concerned with science for its interest rather than for its use. Yet history teaches us that the outcome of his work has often proved to be of surprising utility. In Britain research in pure science is conducted mainly in universities.
As an example Sir Edward Appleton considers how the astronomer is trying to unravel the history of the universe by examining both the light waves and the radio waves which are now reaching us from the farthest range of space.
