An appeal on behalf of Church of Scotland Huts for His Majesty's Forces, by the Very Rev. Charles L. Warr , C.V.O., D.D., LL.D., Dean of the Thistle and Chapel Royal in Scotland The Church of Scotland is responsible for hut and canteen centres in every large city in Scotland, and in camps and lonely outposts wherever there is need. It also runs a number of mobile canteens and a travelling cinema unit.
In France it has accepted responsibility for an extensive range of hut and canteen centres, in each of which there is a reading and writing room, as well as a chapel where the troops may meditate and pray. Before long the call will come to extend these activities.

What diverted us when we were at war a quarter of a century ago ? What diverts us today? If there is perhaps less romance in the theatre, at least music, colour, pretty girls, -comedians to make us laugh-these are all still in demand. Listeners will be able to compare tunes from shows of yesteryear, such as Chu Chin Chotc and Maid of the Mountains, with tunes from shows of today, such as Cochran's revue at the Savoy, Lights Up, and the show that has gone from the air to the London Palladium, Garrison Theatre.

Denis Matthews 's five sketches for violin and piano had their first public performance at a National Gallery concert some weeks ago, when the same artists who are playing tonight made a success of the work. In a short note on the work, Howard Ferguson said that ' these Sketches should be thought of not as five separate pieces but as a complete work. The contrast between one piece and the next is always sufficient .to provide variety, yet never abrupt enough to disturb the sense of unity of the work as a whole. This unity is further enhanced by the recurrence in the final Rhapsody of material that has already appeared in the Prelude. As the writing throughout establishes the two instruments on an equal footing, the Sketches are duets in the fullest sense of the word '.
