'He likes,' writes a mother, ' the story of the boy who turned the kitchen table upside down to make a ship. When that story was finished, he said to me, " You never let me do that." So I compromised and found a small table he could have in the garden, and now he plays for hours with his sister on the ship. " Heave-hol I he calls, " Wi-i-sh-sh! " He has made a sail. too.' Which of us cannot at least dimly recall the excitement and satisfaction of such play, when, our young minds caught by something we had seen or heard, we acted our new experiences? It helped us to both worldly understanding and imaginative delight. And, certainly, those children who play like this, after hearing tomorrow this story of ' The Ship,' by Joan E. Cass , will be ready for adventure on Friday with the island-seeking hero of Diana Ross ' 'There was Once a Boy.' Today's story, ' The Baby Deer,' by Margaret Gore , has-like the two already mentioned-been broadcast before, while on Wednesday and Thursday come two new ones, 'The Lion and the Three Little Monkeys,' by C. H. Hobday , and ' Market Day,' by Joan E. Davies.

Last week Miriam, Miss Pink, and Bob spent a pleasant week-end in Cornwall and Miriam leased a cottage. When Bob was ready to drive back to town, Miss Pink gave him a letter to give to Maud, because she said Miriam had asked her to stay as her companion. When Maud read the letter she said on no account would she ever have Miss Pink back. However she got so muddled with her engagements that she pleaded with Bob and Alec to go to Cornwall with her to try and persuade Miss Pink to be her secretary again. Sally, worried because Michael was caking Jenny out too much, told Gwen. Jenny told Bob she was expecting to become engaged to Michael. Mrs. Morgan strained her back, and Dr. Dale told her she must rest and had to reassure her that Mrs. Skeats would not take her place while she was away

'Remember Scotland. If you come to it, Scotland will always remember you. You will be such a queen as they would make songs and stories of until the end of time.' With these words James Hepburn, Earl of Bothwell, tried to comfort the eighteen-year-old Queen of France and Scotland. In her historical novel 'The Gay Galliard' Margaret Irwin vividly relates the love story of Mary Queen of Scots and the Earl of Bothwell from his first sight of her 'walking down a street in Paris, swift and shining in the sunlight as though made of Venetian glass,' until their final parting on the battlefield of Canberry Hill. it is a story from a spacious age and, with Margaret Irwin's brilliant characterisation, men and women from history once more walk in the sunlight, live in the shadow of sudden death, and love by the light of the moon.
