"Village Inns" as known In England are unknown in Australia, but many a country home picks up a church ser- vice on Sundays and thus many per- sons who live in Isolated places are enabled to hear the singing and preaching, in a Sydney, Brisbane, or Melbourne Church.

Wales with radio for the entertainment of patients, the experience of an English hospital committee is of interest. "After a thorough test and some months' experience, the wireless Instal- lation at the Bradford Royal Infirmary has proved eminently satisfactory," says a writer In the London "Radio Times." "The official doctors, nurses and patients all give It unqualified praise. There is a pair of 'phones foi every bed-about 215-and as the oc- cupants got accustomed to thom, they give the nurses very little call for at- tention. Other local hospitals have in- stallations, but this is believed to be the largest and most complete In the country." ' ~ .
