C. R. STONOR
C. R. Stonor, well-known naturalist, will give two Nature Study talks to schools this term, of which this afternoon's is the first. He is going to tell about some of the small creatures that inhabit houses, and explain why some of them are useful and some very much the reverse.
Listeners will hear about the habits of the death-watch beetle and the harm it does; about the house spider, which is really a useful little creature and not one to be afraid of ; about the cockroach, the harmful house mouse, and that most curious of house-dwelling insects, the cricket.

' The King and the Chancellor'
Henry VIII and Sir Thomas More
AUDREY BAKER
The object of this broadcast is to tell the story of Sir Thomas More , the well-known Renaissance scholar, and of his patron Henry VIII , showing their mutual love of learning and describing their attitude towards the Church.
There will be three scenes in the broadcast ; the first showing the king and the More family in Chelsea ; the second depicting the quarrel as a result of which Sir Thomas was sent to the Tower ; and the third showing the scene on the scaffold where More met his end.
The story you will hear is supposed to be told to you by one William Roper , who wrote a life of Sir Thomas More , who was his father-in-law.

Being a weekly account of the proceedings of the Rural District Council of Nether Backwash, presided over by none other than Mr. Muddlecombe, J.P., in other words. Robb Wilton minuted by Max Kester and Anthony Hall
Most listeners will he glad to welcome back to the microphone that irresponsible but delightful figure, Mr. Muddlecombe. We understand that the public affairs of Nether Backwash are about to enter a period of characteristic dilly-dally and confusion, to which, as all who are familiar with Mr. Muddlecombe, J.P., may guess, the worthy magistrate will contribute in his own inimitable way.
Mr. Muddlecombe returns to the microphone after an absence of almost exactly a year.
