To provide a party of children with a spread that will satisfy their keen sense of what is due at Christmas-time, without making them ill, is no mean feat. Miss Helen Tress, who will give some advice as to how to do it, is Lecturer in Household Arts at King's College for Women, and an Examiner in Sick-room Cookery to Middlesex Hospital. At present she is engaged also in important research work for the Low Temperature Research Station at Cambridge.

A S a photographer (and cinematographer) of wild life, and as the possessor of Toto and Simba and other pets about whoso mentality he has discovered, and published, some extraordinarily interesting information, Mr. Kearton is extremely well known. Naturally, a man does not get such wonderful pictures of wild animals as he has got without spending mAny a night in the jungle, and this evening he will describe one such nocturnal vigil when there was a good deal going on.

Alington Hall , Shrewsbury School
THE end-of-term concerts at the great Pub-lie Schools are a sort of occasion that never occurs elsewhere, and Shrewsbury School has as much tradition as any of them. Those listeners who have not themselves been present at such a concert, as well as all Old Salopians, will bo particularly interested in the broadcast tonight.

No city in Europe, except possibly Rome, has more secrets to yield to the archaeologist than Constantinople, which was the capital of half the world when London consisted of no more than a village, a fort and a ford. Mr. Casson, who is Lecturer in Archaeology at the University of Oxford, has been the director of a recent expedition to excavate in Old Stamboul, and he has some interesting stories about their finds.

A Play in Three Acts by ST. John ERVINE
Presented by VICTOR SMYTHE
S.B. from Manchester
John Thurlow , the head of Thurlow's
Shipbuilding Yard, has at last completed the task of building a super-ship, which in his estimation is unsinkable. His one sorrow is that his son Jack has grown up a priggish, humourless lad, whose outlook on life is characterized by a persistent revolt against convention. He opposes his father's wish that he should take his place at Thurlows' and carry on the work of three generations. The play describes the conflict between the ambitious
I father and the easy-going Bon-a conflict tamiliar enough in the modern novel and play, but here dealt with in an original and intensely poignant manner.
