Mr. REYNOLD BRAY :
' Buy a Reindeer'
When buying a reindeer one must be careful.
The first one Mr. Bray bought died on him, figuratively speaking, so he had to buy two more. He eventually abandoned these, too, and with a friend, pulled his sleigh across Lapland last year. Russia via Lapland is not a widely-advertised route, and enterprising holiday-makers who are curious about it will find Mr. Bray a stimulating guide.

Mr. JAMES AGATE : ' Miss Fay Compton'
Playgoers who saw Fay Compton in John Barrymore 's production of Hamlet at the Haymarket in 1925, say they saw the best, most beautiful Ophelia of our time. Mr. James Agate , who has probably seen more Ophelias than any other living man, may be too tactful to express an opinion. But listeners who hear Miss Compton in two famous extracts from Hamlet tonight, may be certain they are hearing the only living actress who can play Ophelia and Principal Boy in pantomime with equal success. (The extracts used were made by means of gramophone records)
