A Running Commentary on the Second Half of the Association Football Match at White Hart Lane, by Mr. George F. Allison and Mr. Derek McCulloch.
The Wireless Military Band, conducted by B. Walton O'Donnell
Dorothy D'Orsay (Soprano) William Heseltine (Tenor)
The Association football season is now well under way; form is beginning to get settled, reputations are being made, unmade and confirmed, and the Championship table is taking shape. Today the radio football season opens, and the commentator's hut, which last winter became so familiar a sight on grounds all over the country, is to make its reappearance at White Hart Lane, and the full-throated cheering of the 'Spurs' supporters (not without its competition from those enthusiasts whom the charabancs have brought down from Everton) will fill the microphone once again. The sporting broadcasts have become a regular and a favourite feature of the programmes, and this year they will be planned on a bolder and more extensive scale.

AUTUMN is notoriously a dangerous season from the point of view of health. Cold evenings, days that start as summer and end as winter, and November fogs combine to undermine the constitutions of all but the strongest, and make one start the winter with a cold that one never properly shakes off. Dr. Saleeby's talk tonight will be devoted to giving some general principles and some particular hints to those who are anxious to preserve their health unimpaired throughout these gloomy months.

T ISTENERS will remember a previous talk by Mr. S. C. H. Davies broadcast in the summer, on his return from Le Mans, where, in co-operation with another racing motorist, ho had just won the Grand Prix of Endurance in a Bentley car. Mr. Davies, who is on the staff of The Autocar, knows all there is to know about motor-racing, and in this broadcast he will describe the last of the series of five great races, upon the result of which the European championship depends.
