Mr. Allan Walker is known to be an enthusiast for, and an expert on, the antiquities and architecture of London and its surroundings. Everyone who has heard his lectures or his broadcast talks knows that he would he an ideal companion for a walk, especially along a road so full of interest as that from Edgware, on the historic Watling Street, to Stanmore, as he would certainly know all about everything on the route, and nobody can make information interesting more deftly than he. This afternoon listeners can enjoy his company on this walk by the medium of their wireless sets.

London and Daventry will take the Manchester Station Children's Hour. (You may 'Bank' on a good 'Holiday' programme)
It is always interesting to know what other people are doing, and, with this idea in view, the London and Daventry Children's Hour is taking a programme every few weeks from one or another of the Provincial Stations. Today the Manchester 'bill of fare' is to be simultaneously

The loss of the recipe, however, brings him hope. It is found by a loafer, Slinks, who has just been promised a job in the Distillery, and he sells it to Paap at a good price. Paap sees in it a means of winning Sally's hand as a reward, but the hope is damped by Mr. Hook's threat to have the man who 'finds' it arrested.
Meanwhile, all is ready for the great celebrations at the Distillery. Van Vuyt is forbidden to go to Amsterdam by Paap, but ' persuades ' Slinks to sell him his job in the Distillery, and so we find him there in time for the rejoicings.
Capt. Paap, not wishing to court arrest, decides to return the recipe by means of a deputy and selects Van Vuyt , believing him to be one of the workmen. Van Vuyt hands it to Mr. Hook, who immediately accuses him of stealing it and orders his arrest, but here Sally intervenes with a much better plan.
