Round the Countryside
C. C. CADDUM
Today C. C. Gaddum is to discuss that interesting bird the owl, and he will explain its characteristics-its soft feathers that make for noiseless flight, its alert sight and hearing, its partiality for the night, its manner of bolting its food and casting up the pellets. He will describe the two commonest owls to be found in Britain : the brown or tawny or wood owl that will perch in a tree outside your window and wake you in the dead of night with its eerie hoot; the barn or white or screech owl, so called because it roosts in barns or old buildings, is white underneath, and occasionally emits a weird loud scream as it glides through the dusk.
Finally, he will say something of the much maligned little owl, introduced into Britain rather less than a century ago, yet surprisingly common today.
Teachers will find it helpful to have illustrations of these three kinds of owls to show their class.

' Studying Cosmic Rays '
P. M. S. BLACKETT , F.R.S.
(Professor of Physics, Birkbeck College,
University of London)
Tonight Professor Blackett, Professor of Physics at the Birkbeck College, University of London, since 1933, is to give a talk on a subject which for thirty-three years has occupied hundreds of research workers all over the world. Cosmic rays are radiations having a shorter wavelength and greater penetrative power than any previously investigated, and so called because their source appears to be interstellar spaces.
Our ignorance about them is still tremendous, but what has been discovered is enthralling enough. It appears that the earth is bombarded in all directions by atomic particles. Where do they come from ? We do not know. How are they produced ? We know still less. Listeners are to hear all that is known about them, and just why they are interesting scientists everywhere.
