The BBC Midland Singers
Conductor, Edgar Morgan
How sweet to wander As the watcher longs
I'm in no hurry to marry As dewdrops at morn
An end I will bring to doubt Her true love she greeteth Tender music all inviting Coronach
The Lord is my shepherd
God is in the thunder storm Where thou reignest

' Decorating the Outside of the House'
W. P. Matthew
It takes more than flowers to make a garden. There are paths, fences, gates, and walls to be looked after. Any of these, falling into disrepair, may give the richest garden a look of slovenliness-and so will a shabby house-front. The more useful then is this fortnightly series of practical talks, which are a follow-up to a previous successful series by Mr. Matthew broadcast earlier in the. year. They are aimed primarily at the owner of the small house and garden who either prefers or is obliged to look after all these things for himself. This is the second of a series of five talks, which will alternate with Friday-evening garden talks.

' Escape from Capture '
Lieut.-General Sir Tom Bridges ,
K.C.B., K.C.M.G.
General Sir Tom Bridges is to describe an exciting episode in his Army career. In the early days of the Great War-August, 1914-he was involved in the skirmishing between the British Expeditionary Force and the advance sections of the German Army. In one day he twice escaped from capture and then only by the skin of his teeth, after a succession of hairbreadth adventures.
Sir Tom Bridges has had an exceptionally varied career in war and peace. A friend of the Belgian 'Royal Family, he was head of the military mission with the Belgian Army during the war. Later he was Divisional Commander in Flanders, and then twice a member of the British War Missions to the United States of America, where he deputised on more than one occasion for Earl (then Mr.) Balfour ; he ended a distinguished military career with his valuable work as Head of the British Mission, Allied Forces of the Orient. His last important public work was his tenure of the Governorship of South Australia from 1922 to 1927.
