C. H. Middleton
There are endless things to do in the kitchen garden this month, and many of them the sooner the better: all the root crops except parsnips to lift and put away for the winter' clamps ' or ' pies ' to be made if you are storing them out of doors ; asparagus beds to attend to ; late celery to earth up (with a sprinkle of salt round the plants first, as everybody's gardener, C. H. Middle ton, has advised before in his broadcast talks) ; then there are Brussels sprouts to pick, spring cabbages to plant out, perhaps a bed of lettuce for use in the spring, and a row or two of broad beans to sow. Today, in a solo broadcast, Middleton is to talk about vegetables and vegetable gardens and tell you what to do.

I-Family Life by a Practising Medical
Behind the ' widespread dislocation and confusion ' of the world stands the individual, with his own personal problems of everyday life and its common relationships. Many of the young feel frustrated in the attempt to realise their aspirations ; married persons find themselves confronted with the whole series of adaptations involved in matrimony and parenthood ; the middle-aged who possess neither the enthusiasm of youth nor the placidity of old age often regard themselves as ' back numbers ' and a burden ; and many who are past middle life do not find it easy to grow old gracefully.
But the individual will face himself and the wider issues with greater courage if he understands some of the principles underlying personal relationships, and gains a certain insight into his own motives. This is some of the ground which will be covered in a series intended to help men and women of all ages to guide their lives quietly and effectively in difficult days.
The speaker, who gave a broadcast talk some little time ago on spiritual healing, will broadcast tour talks in this series on four consecutive Sundays, the titles being: Family Life (today) ; Youth ; Marriage ; and Old Age and the Years Between. On November 7 he will broadcast answers to listeners' questions.

As one would expect of a pupil of Rimsky-Korsakov, the orchestration of Arensky's Symphony No. I, in B minor, is very brilliant, and the influence of Borodin's symphony in the same key, completed only five or six years earlier, is obvious-particularly in the racy finale. In the first movement Tchaikovsky seems to be shaking hands with Rimsky-Korsakov, but the pastoral slow movement is thoroughly characteristic, of Arensky's own elegiac vein and the scherzo shows him already experimenting with 5/4 time. The last movement is based on two folk songs taken from Balakirev's collection. The first is the tune of a spring dancing game. The second, more sustained, is a barge-haulers' song, ' My little plot of earth ', also from the Don country-a pleasant reminder that Russia possesses other singing boatmen than those of the Volga.

The Rev. Donald 0. Soper, Ph.D.
This is the first of a series of talks by one of the most popular of broadcasters, Dr. Donald Soper , inseparably associated with Tower Hill. Using simple and non-technical words as far as possible, he will discuss some of the more popular fallacies about Christianity and explain to listeners why they flourish : some because most people cull their views about spiritual issues from fifth-rate sources ; others because their fallacies are seldom brought to life and are so largely inarticulated ; itnd others because Christianity, for one reason or another, is by some wilfully misrepresented.
Today, in his first talk, Dr. SopeV will examine some of the more popular misconceptions about God, and on the next four Sundays he will give four more talks, on fallacies about Our Lord, about the Church, about the parson, and about the Kingdom of God. On November 21 he will answer listeners' questions.

An appeal on behalf of THE BRIGHTON AND HOVE SOCIAL
The Social Service Centre for Brighton and Hove deals with distress of every kind in the district. It puts those in need in touch with those best able to help. The local authorities refer families to it; clergy of all denominations consult it; the hospitals entrust their almoners' departments to it ; and the Invalid Children's Aid Association entrusts its work to it. National societies use it to report on applications for assistance, and those who wish to help in genuine distress do so through the Centre. Demands on its services are continuously increasing, and more money is urgently needed to carry on the work.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]
