2nd Cross Word Puzzle Programme.
Relayed to "5XX."
GLADYS PALMER (Contralto).
Conducted by Capt. W. A. FEATHERSTONE.
The first two correct solutions opened win the Prizes. First Prize, £3 3s. 0d.; Second Prize, £1s. 0d.
Closing Date: Entries must reach the Bournemouth Station not later than Saturday morning, April 25th.
This will enable the many Foreign Listeners who wrote and expressed their regret at the early closing date in the last Competition to send in entries.
Cut the diagram out and keep until the night of the concert.
The Announcer will read out the clues, which will be followed by a song or an instrumental piece which will contain the cross puzzle word. In the case of an instrumental piece, the cross word will be found in the title. In the case of a song, the word will be slightly accentuated by the singer.
The Cross Word Competition will finish at 10.0. Those who are not interested in Cross Word Puzzles will derive pleasure from the songs and music, which will be rendered in quite the usual concert manner.
The Announcer will read the clues in the order considered to be the most helpful toward the solution.
No artists appearing on this night will be permitted to enter for the Competition; equally, no members of the B.B.C. staff, not excluding orchestras. All Competitors will be allowed thirty seconds between each word to enable them to enter the words on the diagram.
