What is best worth having in Life?
Mabel Constanduros
This is the third conversation in a train by the editress of our Letter Page this week. The characters are four: a girl, who believes in her career ; a young man, who believes in work for work's sake; an elderly North-Country man, who believes in money; and a mature woman, who believes that the best things in life are a husband and child-the latter character being played by Mabel Constanduros.
She has been rehearsing this week in her own play, Three for Luck, which is to be produced next Monday by the Newcastle Repertory Company. She came up to London today especially to broadcast and will return on the last train tonight. Her first novel, ' Poison Flower ', which has just been published, is on the same theme.

1, The Mineral and the Mine
. Contributors
T. David Jones , Professor of Mining at the University of Wales F. J. North, Head of the Geological Department of the National
Museum of Wales
Wesley Hancock , Lecturer in Mining in the University of Birmingham
Robert Gee
This is the first broadcast in an important series that has been planned to give listeners a bird's-eye view of the physical conditions of coal and coal-mining. It will begin with an account of what coal is, and will end with an account of the collier. It was a problem how a subject covering the British Isles could be dealt with from London, because no complete picture could be given without bringing to the microphone men who know the industry in the North and West and East. As the broadcasts had to be limited to five, the duration of each has been extended beyond the usual time allotted to talks, and three or more speakers will contribute to each broadcast.
Tonight listeners are to hear about the nature of coal 'and the difficulties that had to be overcome before it was first mined ; also an account and explanation of what a coal-mine is.
