JAMES TOPPING (tenor) ORCHESTRA
Reginald King 's compositions are played on the air by almost every light orchestra, but he has just been paid a greater compliment still in being appointed a Professor of Musical Composition at the Royal Academy of Music, where he was a student ten years ago. As he is to specialise in the teaching of light composition, this is in the nature of a new appointment at the Academy.
There can be few busier men. He broadcasts regularly with the Celebrity Trio which he formed two years ago. On June u, with his orchestra, he is to broadcast for the first time his new composition ' Summer Breezes' in another of his programmes of music by British composers. And while the Empire Orchestra is on holiday in July, Reginald King and his Orchestra will take its place. JAMES TOPPINGORCHESTRAJAMES TOPPINGORCHESTRA

Speed in Sport'
F. W. LANE
Here is rather an unconventional sports talk, for as a rule each talk deals with some particular game or branch of sport, whereas this is to embrace one aspect of many.
F. W. Lane is a young man with a curious hobby-the speed of golf balls, billiard balls, tennis balls fascinates him. Using a stop-watch here and a fraction-of-a-second exposure with a camera there, he pits the speed of one ball against another. Which goes faster-the ping-pong ball or the billiard ball ? What happened to the golf ball that hit a book, and what happened to the book ? And to the golf ball that hit a green-keeper's scythe ?
Every aspect of speed, from the speed of a cricket ball to that of a fly being cast by an angler, has been studied by Lane. And some of the facts he has arrived at-many of them amusing, all of them interesting-will be told in his talk this evening.
