By PHIL SCOTT (The Heavy-weight Boxer)
PHIL SCOTT, who has chosen and arranged the fifth of this special series of programmes, is the most popular and promising heavy-weight champion Britain has had since Georges Carpentier first cast British heavy-weight boxing into a decline by his sensational victories over Bombardier Wells in 1913. The present champion, who won his title only last March by a speedy victory over Frank Goddard at the Albert Hall, is an ex-fireman, and has only been in the game as a whole-timer for a very short time.
Whether or not he is destined to be a world-beater, Phil Scott is a worthy figure to stand at the head of the British boxing profession, and the ideas on broadcasting of so excellent and representative a sportsman are sure to interest everybody who cares for the noble art and one of our oldest native sports.

THIRD WEEK-VARIOUS SONGS, interpreted by FRANKLYN KELSEY
Trauer der Liebe (Love's Grief)
Des Sangers Habe (The Singer's Gift) An den Tod (To Death)
Verklärung (Transfiguration)
Freiwilliges Versinken (Willing Sacrifice) Geistliches Lied (Sacred Song)
LOVE'S GRIEF is a simple, melodious lyric of three similar verses.
The Singer's Gift is one of those Schubertian character-songs of which wo have had many splendid examples during the week. ' Shatter my fortunes, take from me everything that I have. But leave me my Zither ; then am I happy and rich.' The music is fiery and exultant.
In Willing Sacrifice, after a preliminary ques
-tioning, it is the Sun who speaks, as ho descends
(versenkt) into the sea, to illumine other lands.
. ' I nothing take ; my only care is giving.'
