MOTHERS of several children must often have felt that, however important labour-saving might be in the factory, it was just as essential in the home. Mrs. St. Aubyn is herself the mother of five children, so her knowledge of her subject is by no means confined to theory. She founded the Association of Nursery Training Colleges, and she is a member of the Executive Council of the National Society of Day Nurseries and the author of a handbook on' Nursery Life.'

The Rev. Eric SOUTHAM : ' Teach us to Pray-I, When ye pray say, '' Our Father which art in Heaven " '
S.B. from Bournemouth
YESTERDAY was Ash Wednesday, and with the coming of Lent many people feel inclined to welcome a special religious address delivered in mid-week, especially if it is one of a series that can follow a connected course, and embrace a more extended argument than is possible with a single broadcast sermon. The Rev. Eric Southam supplied this need last year with a notable series of Lenten addresses, which were the occasion of the Bishop of Winchester's book entitled ' What is God like ? ' This year ho will approach a problem which is very pressing in this age-the problem of how to pray. The recent re-awakening of religious feeling amongst many people who had long discontinued their religious practise, and many more who, born in an age of unbelief, have literally never been taught how to pray, has created a new interest in the act of prayer. This evening Mr. Southam will begin with the opening words of the proto- type of Christian prayer, the Lord's Prayer itself.

The Great Religions'
IT has been said that the history of India ia the history of Indian religions. The religious aspectof Indian life is the subject of Mr. Turnbull's talk this evening. He explains the difference between the old Vedic religion with its growth of religious philosophy, its saints, and its ascetics, and the features of modem popular Hinduism. He also speaks of Buddhism, its rise and decline, of the Islamic influence in India, of the warlike creed of the Sikhs, and the sun-worshipping of the Parsees. Lastly, he touches the ever-burning question of Christianity in India.
