IN the first of his second series of talks Professor
Noel Baker (who holds the Chair of International Relations at the University of London) will discuss the machinery now existing for settling disputes between nations by arbitration, in order to avoid the danger of war. He will also describe some cases in which arbitration has been resorted to with conspicuous success.

OUR modern writers of crime stories have great resources to work with, but, for sheer ingenuity of plot and creation of interest, Wilkio Collins is very hard to beat. ' The Woman in White ' is not merely one of his most successful novels ; it is the ' starring vehicle ' (as the film people would say) for Count Fosco--as attractive a villain as ever wrote the story of his life and crimes.

THIS is the last, for the present at any rate, of the series of talks arranged by Mr. Le Breton Martin, in which some of the vigorous and colourful dialects of the English counties have been brought to the London microphone. In these days of growing uniformity and urbanization, it is pleasant to be reminded that England still breeds men who express themselves in language redolent of the old native character and smacking of the soil.

IN her last talk in this series, before Christmas,
Miss Power described the two forces that, spiritually and socially, held Europe together in the Middle Ages-chivalry and the Church. This evening she turns to the economic side, and considers the organization of mediaeval life on the basis of the village ; the splendid town civilization of Italy, Germany, and Flanders and the trade of Italy, of England, and of the Hanseatic League in the North.

ENGLISH agriculture has long been the ' sick man' of our industries, and not merely farmers, but everybody interested in the prosperity of the land will welcome th's series of talks. In it, Mr. Robertson Scott (the editor of The Countryman, and perhaps the most widely-informed writer on agricultural subjects) will discuss the prospects of farming in England, with reference to the experience of three other countries — Holland, Denmark, and Japan
