SEXTET The Isidore Schwiller Sextet has been on the air since May of last year. Essentially a microphone team, it consists of three violins, a viola, 'cello, and double bass. (For some musical items, however, an extra viola takes the place of a violin.) The leader is Isidore Schwiller, the well-known violinist who is a member of the London Symphony Orchestra. He has done a good deal of solo work in the past-it was he, for instance, who gave a first performance at Queen's Hall of Lalo's Concerto Russe-and for some time he was leader and conductor of the old Carl Rosa Opera Company Orchestra.

Jeno Lener (violin); Joseph Smilovits (violin); Sandor Roth (viola) ;
Imre Hartman (violoncello) The four artists who form this Quartet arc almost the same age-two were born in 1894 and two in 1895-and all were
-distinguished pupils of the same school
-the Budapest Academy All except the 'cellist were pupils of one master, Hubay, and he was a pupil and close1 friend of Joachim. The 'cellist Was a pupil of that great artist David Popper. When revolution broke out in Hungary in 1918, all four were leading members of the Budapest Opera Orchestra ; they went into retirement, and devoted themselves for two years to uninterrupted quartet practice, with a success which was immediately acclaimed on their first appearance as an ensemble. To the musical world of Vienna, and soon afterwards in Paris, their playing was something of a revelation, and even now, when the whole world knows them, it is a source of amazement that four artists can play as though only one conception of the music guided their thoughts and hands.
' The man who recognised the Royal Family at Varennes ', by Hilaire Belloc
Read by JOHN C. MAUDE
It is a fascinating, if idle, game to toy with the ' ifs ' of history : ' If the Persians had won at Marathon ', ' If George Ill 's ministers had handled the American question more wisely' ... And none of these ' ifs ' opens up a wider field of conjecture than that which was decided by Hilaire Belloc 's hero, Jean Baptiste Drouet. If Louis XVI and his Queen had not been recognised in the market-square of Sainte-Menehould and checked at Varennes by Drouet on Midsummer Night, 1791, the whole course of the French Revolution, even of world history, might have been changed.
The flight from Paris in itself produced a crisis. Louis fled from Lafayette and the moderate, constitutional royalists, and, by so doing, undermined them ; it was only after the fatal step had been taken that men began to mention the word republic '. But if Louis could have reached the Marquis de Bouille and his loyal troops (mostly German mercenaries), it might have gone hard with constitutional royalist and republican alike, and an absolute monarch might once more have sat on the throne of France.

An appeal on behalf of THE PERSONAL SERVICE LEAGUE by the Hon. Mrs. SYDNEY MARSHAM
Throughout the country for the past three years the Personal Service League's workers have been carrying out their voluntary task of providing clothing, boots, and bedding for those people who, through prolonged unemployment, are in urgent need of help to renew their equipment.
Non-political and non-sectarian, the League co-operates with existing organisations both in the investigation of cases and in the distribution of clothing. In the depressed areas, the Personal Service League depots have to be supplied almost entirely from the more prosperous districts, and a great many deserving cases have to be refused because there is not enough clothing available:
The League finds that boots, men's suits, and blankets are most needed, and these cannot be made by the work parties or collected in sufficient quantities. It is for purchasing new clothing, direct from the factories and mills, that funds are required at once.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]

Some of the best of Hugh Walpole 's novels have been written round the imaginary cathedral city of Polchester -' The Cathedral', ' Harmer John ', ' Jeremy and Hamlet', and The Inquisitor ', etc. Kenneth Leslie-Smith offers a graceful compliment to Mr. Walpole, who is his favourite author, in his Suite ' Polchester ', each number of which is based on a scene or character in the Polchester novels. To those who know these novels the titles of the numbers of the Suite are self-explanatory with the exception of No. 4, which depicts the home-sickness of an American sailor stranded in Seatown (the slum river-front quarter of Polchester).
