MIRIAM LICETTE (Soprano)
THE WIRELESS ORCHESTRA (Leader, S. KNEALE KELLEY)
Conducted by John ANSELL
(Solo Pianists, VICTOR HELY-HUTCHINSON and BERKELEY
MASON)
THIS is a series of little musical jokes, in which the composer portrays different animals - fish, flesh and fowl. One of the pieces, the Violoncello solo called The Swan, became very popular ; but the composer would not allow the Suite as a whole to be published in his lifetime.
The creatures depicted in the various sketches are, in the order of their appearance: The Lion, Hens and Cocks, Wild Asses, Tortoises, The Elephant, Kangaroos, Fish, Donkeys, The Cuckoo,
Birds in general, Pianists (these are odd animals, we know!), Fossils, and the Swan. A brilliant Finale winds up the show.

' The World Outlook from Jerusalem,' by Mr. HUBERT W. PEET
THIS spring, a groat gathering of men and women from fifty-one countries, representing almost everyrace and colour in the world, met in Jerusalem to help to frame a new policy and. programme for Christian missions in the forthcoming years. Listeners will remember a talk on the conference given by the American missionary leader, Dr. John R. Mott , who was then on his way out to attend it. This afternoon Mr. Hubert Peet , who was largely responsible for the Press arrangements at the conference, will describe this 'remarkable event.

Wordsworth
THIS afternoon's reading will give a representative selection from the enormous output of Wordsworth, the poet who began as the leader of a literary revolt, who endured torrents of contemptuous criticism, and ended by becoming Poet Laureate and the greatest influence in the world of letters of the Early Victorian age. The poems read will include the ' Ode on Intimations of Immortality,' and the even more famous sonnet, 'Milton! thou should'st be living at this hour.'
