THE GRINKE TRIO :
Frederick Grinke (violin). Florence Hooton (violoncello). Dorothy Manley
The more one thinks about the premature death of Schubert in the light of his last group of instrumental works, the more one realises what masterpieces the world has lost. Whereas in song Schubert was a pioneer of the romantic movement, even from the early part of his career when he wrote the ' Erlking', it was not until the last three or four years of his life that he began to apply a romantic technique, particularly as regards harmony, to classical instrumental forms ; for example, the C major Symphony, String Quartet in G, Op. 161, String Quintet in C, Op. 163, and the Piano Trios in B flat and E flat.
The Piano Trios were composed in 1827 for the Bocklet-Schuppanzigh-Linke Trio with which Schubert at that time was closely associated. Both works are extremely romantic in conception, and if we agree to Schumann's description of the E flat being ' passive, feminine, lyrical' and the B flat being 'active, masculine, dramatic ', they should be considered complementary.

' Southern Rhodesia'
' Pioneer Farming in the Tropics '
In Southern Rhodesia there are schools for English children, though only fifty years ago, when it was known as Matabeleland and Mashonaland, there were no white people living there. The children work only in the morning, for it's too hot to work at mid-day, and Roy McGregor , who taught in a boys' school, is to describe how his pupils dressed, how they lived, how they spent their day. Listeners will learn what kopjes are, and how after months of drought you can smell the rain coming. They will hear about work on a Rhodesian farm ; how practically all of it is done by natives, who come from long distances to earn the money to pay their taxes and buy clothes. It is a lonely country. You may cross one hill after another, and meet no one. But there is plenty of life there. English boys and girls are growing up to go in for gold mining, and farming, and to fill jobs in the towns. And the natives are fast learning to live as we do.

Lucien Denis Gabriel Albéric Magnard was born in Paris in 1865, and killed by German soldiers on the doorstep of his house at.Baron, Oise, on September 3, 1914. A pupil of Vincent d'lndy, Magnard wrote his first symphony in 1889-90, and his third appeared in 1902. Although at one time he came strongly under the influence of Wagner, his music is generally somewhat austere, but is remarkable for its earnestness and gravity.
Magnard wrote four symphonies, chamber music, and three lyric dramas : - Yolamle (1894), Guercoeur (1904), and Berenice (1911). The last mentioned was performed at the Opéra-Comique in Paris in 1911. When Magnard was killed his house was fired on and burnt down, and a good many of his manuscripts, including two acts of Guercceur were destroyed.

This evening Philip Noel Baker is to discuss international co-operation from the aspect of refugee work-obviously an enormously important work, not alas ! likely to become less so. He will show what the League of Nations has done for refugees and what it is still doing, and, as'an illustration, will deal especially with the League's treatment of the Greek refugees-a million or so of them placed in Europe.
Noel Baker was a member of the League of Nations Section of British Delegations during the Peace Conference, and was attached to the Secretariat until 1922. He was Private Secretary to the President of the Disarmament Conference at Geneva from
1932 to 1933, and won the Howland Prize for distinguished work in the sphere of Government, at Yale University, the following year.
Of his many publications, his book
'The League of Nations at Work ' is of particular interest in view of today's broadcast.
