@ On making and planting a small rock garden
Clarence Elliott and C. H. Middleton
Clarence Elliott , who will come to the microphone today with a talk on ' How to build a rock garden', may be described as a rockery expert. He has himself designed and constructed a great many famous rockeries, and there are few better qualified to instruct the amateur in this none too easy side of garden design. The speaker has travelled in many parts of the world in search of the floral treasures of the mountains and rocks.

' A Missionary Doctor on the Afghan Frontier' by a Medical Missionary
St. Luke's Day falls on October 18, and it is therefore fitting that the monthly missionary talk nearest to that day should have an outstanding piece of medical mission work for its theme. This afternoon a well-known medical missionary will be speaking on the great work of the Peshawar Medical Mission. It was in 1907 that he first went out for the Church Missionary Society to the North-West frontier of India, and he has been working there ever since. His service received official recognition in 1919. when he was awarded the Kaisar-i-Hind Medal. His stories of the difficulties and reward of medical mission work will emphasise once again that this is not merely a humanitarian activity, but that it is an integral part of the Christian witness and of the way of the Good Physician.

This is the second radio revival of Noel Coward 's great pageant of British social history. First broadcast on two consecutive evenings in June, 1936, it was repeated in October of the same year. Mary O'Far rel, it will be remembered, played the part of Jane Marryot on both occasions, and will repeat her performance tonight.
Newcomers to the cast, which is substantially the same as in the previous broadcasts, are Marjorie Mars and Fred Groves. Fred Groves played the part of Bridges in the original production at Drury Lane and will be chiefly remembered by listeners for his performance as ' Engstrand ' in the radio production of Ghosts, with Marie Tempest , in December, 1937.

Yorkshire cook in the stage production, did not miss a single performance, and has also played in every broadcast of the play.

An appeal on behalf of THE CHICHESTER DIOCESAN MORAL WELFARE ASSOCIATION by Dame SYBIL THORNDIKE ,
D.B.E., LL.D.
The Chichester Diocesan Moral Welfare Association exists ' to uphold the Christian standard of morality among men, women, and children ' throughout the Chichester Diocese, which is co-terminous with Sussex. The work is educational and remedial. There are in the Diocese a Maternity Home for unmarried mothers and their babies, six Shelters, where any stranded girl or woman is given lodging and assistance, and eight outdoor workers, who give help and advice to those in moral danger or difficulty in their own areas, without distinction of class or creed. This work costs about £7,000 a year in voluntary contributions, and because of the confidential nature of the work, and the impossibility of speaking of individual cases, the money is very difficult to find.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to [address removed].
