Talk by W. H. Morris Jones
'By almost any standard,' says the speaker, 'three years is a very short period in the life of a constitution, and it is little more than three years since the republican constitution of India was inaugurated.' He nevertheless believes that the moment is opportune to see how far the Indian constitution is fulfilling its function in the country for which it was designed. Mr. Morris Jones, one of the constitutional advisers to the Viceroy in 1947, is now a lecturer in Political Science at the London School of Economics.

Talk by John Holloway
The speaker points out that in spite of efforts made in the nineteemhocentury by poets such as Tennyson, Arnold, Morris, and Doughty to revive the spirit and practice of epic, the long narrative poem has become virtually an anachronism in England. He examines possible reasons for this and discusses the question whether some of the elements in early epic poetry can still be relevant today.
John Holloway is Lecturer in English in the University of Aberdeen.
