by Lord Dunsany read by Carleton Hobbs
He was an ordinary man, a salesman of the. Briton Dictionary of Electricity, with one rather extraordinary virtue-to him one woman was as ugly as another. He struck what he thought was a bargain with the infernal regions, but, like Faustus, he found later the consequences to be rather uncomfortable. The three jokes he received in exchange for his virtue were as lethal as cyanide. What happened to him after a disastrous dinner at his club which led to his trial for mass murder is told in the amusing vein of fantasy for which Lord Dunsany is famous.

A talk prepared by the late
Cloudesley Brereton
The late Dr. Brereton gave his first broadcast rather less than two years ago, when, as one of the authorities in England on the teaching of French, he was invited to introduce M. Stephan 's course of French talks in the autumn of 1935. He at once established himself as a born broadcaster, and a month or two later gave one of the talks in the series ' Men Talking '. In January of the following year he took part, as the only Englishman among five distinguished Frenchmen, in a French half-hour arranged by his old friend Emile Marie Stephan , and entitled ' The Spirit of France '.
He also gave several other tal'ks and readings, and once broadcast in a composite programme some memories from his early childhood. In tonight's talk, which he prepared with the intention of broadcasting himself, he recalled some other amusing incidents of his life.

The Kutcher String Quartet:
Samuel Kutcher (violin); Max Saal peter (violin); Raymond Jeremy (viola) ; Douglas Cameron (violoncello)
Harry Isaacs (pianoforte)
Frederic d'Erlanger is a true cosmopolitan ; he was born in Paris in 1868 of a German father and an American mother, and at about the age of twenty he became a naturalised Englishman. He has written numerous important works, including three operas, a Violin Concerto that was played by Kreisler at a Philharmonic Concert in 1903, and several orchestral works that have been heard at the Proms and other
Queen's Hall concerts. His opera, Tess of the d'Urbervilles, was first performed at Naples in 1906 and at Covent Garden in 1909. Describing d'Erlanger's Piano
Quintet, Edwin Evans says that ' it is a clear and sunny work, combining a certain French flavour in the lyrical themes and their harmonisation, with close adherence to German formal tradition. Individuality is not aggressively shown, but the absence of any suggestion of the portentous leaves an engaging intimacy, which makes it more agreeable to play than many quintets of the same rank but greater pretensions. It is in the usual four movements, of which the andante and scherzo are the most attractive. The suavity of the former is relieved by an episode which verges on the dramatic, and the latter, though formal, is not lacking in vivacious phantasy '.

The following verse by John Lydgate
(1370?-1451?) will then be sung: Tarry no longer: towards thine heritage Haste on thy way, and be of right good cheer.
Go each day onward on thy pilgrimage ; Think how short time thou shalt abide here.
Thy place is built above the starres clear, None earthly palace wrought in so stately wise.
Come on, my friend, my brother most dear !
For thee I offered my blood in sacrifice.
Organist, G. Thalben Ball
The public will be admitted to the Temple Church on the occasion of this service, which is the first to be broadcast from the Temple. John Lydgate (1370?-1451?), who wrote the words of ' Tarry no longer: towards thine heritage ', to be sung at the end of the service, was a prolific poet: in his early youth he made the acquaintance of Geoffrey Chaucer , with whose son Thomas he was on terms of considerable intimacy.
