Written by Father Pierre Lhande, read by Father Martindale

The French priest whose address Father Martindale - himself one of the most successful of broadcast preachers - will read this afternoon is one of the most interesting characters in modern Paris. A Basque by birth, he has since the War devoted himself to work in a Paris that had hardly been touched before. Not the Paris-Soleil of magasins and restaurants, cafes and music-halls, that visitors and the average Parisian know; but the Paris-Noir outside the fortifications, known to the police as the abode of misery and crime and the haunt of the survivors of the Apaches, and the outer ring of Paris-Rouge, the post-war hovels where paganism and revolution reign.

THE parish of Stoke has a curious history, for in 1800 it comprised the whole of what is now the ' Five Towns,' as well as the borough of Newcastle-under-Lyme. Then came the tremendous expansion in local industry, and if the parish had not been reduced, the Rector would now have nearly a quarter of a million parishioners under his care.
The present Rector, who will preach tonight, succeeded Dr. H. V. Stuart in 1924.

Appeal on behalf of tho Royal Hosuital and Home for Incurables, Putney, by tho Lord Chancellor (Viscount CAVE)
TO be condemned to suffer from an incurable disease is a hard enough fate for anybody to bear, but when it befalls anyone who has not the means to live without working, it is doubly terrible. The Royal Hospital and Home for Incurables at Putney was founded in 1854 ' to relieve and to cherish for life persons of the poorer middle classes suffering from ineurable mata'dies and thereby disqualified for life's duties ' ; and here, in pleasant and beautiful surroundings, these sufferers are enabled to pass the remainder of their days in such measure of comfort as their affliction allows.
