ERIC BROOK: From Sunday-School
League to Cup Final'
No one is more welcome in the ever-popular series than the professional footballer, and no one, by virtue of his calling, is more difficult to get — Saturday being quite the busiest of all days of his busy week. Yet James Jackson of Liverpool, Arthur Rowe of Tottenham Hotspur, and Alex Cheyne ot Chelsea have been persuaded to give talks in the past.
This evening Eric Brook is to describe his career as a footballer. He started at the age of sixteen in a Sunday-School League, and went on to Cup Finals and International matches. In company with Fred Tilson he was transferred to Manchester City from Barnsley.
Listeners will remember that Brook scored two of the three goals in the match against kaly at Highbury last autumn. He will have a chance of contrasting conditions of play in first-class football with the days when his team were lucky if they found a complete set of goal posts for their match.

Tonight Laddie Cliff, of Co-optimist fame, is to give a new act with Billy Mayerl , who was with him in Sporting Life at the Gaiety. Tex McLeod styles himself a spinner of ropes and yams. He started life as a cow-puncher on a Texas ranch and holds the cowboy championship for the roping of steers. A star of the American variety stage, he crossed the Atlantic fifteen years ago to become a star here. He has just played the States again on his world tour of Australia and South Africa.
Bertha Willmott has just finished her first film, Variety, in which she has three solo numbers-all old-time songs. Her first day she was twelve hours on the set, and had to do three concerts afterwards ! Harry Welchman is to make a welcome return in a Music-Hall broadcast. He has been making a film of The Last Waltz in Paris.
Mabel Constanduros is filming, too.
She is just finishing a film called Where's George, in which she plays the part of Sydney Howard's wife-a North Country woman. Tonight Mrs. Buggins is appearing for the first time with a new Mr. Buggins, in the person of Philip Wade.
