(S.B. from Liverpool) Professor Reilly has now discussed the problem of modern architecture as exemplified in the office block and the church of to-day. He now goes on to deal with the small house - a type of building which, now that the really large house has become so rare, has occasioned some of the happiest achievements of modern architects. A photograph of one of them appears on the next page.
The Famous Revue Star in Some of her Revue Successes
'MISS VIOLET LORAINE had a varied and successful career in musical comedy, variety and pantomime—she was an ideal ' principal boy ' ; but probably she will be best remembered for her acting in the war-time revues at the London Hippodrome and the Alhambra. ' Business as Usual,' ' Push and Go,' and ' The Bing Boys ' arc names that, to many listeners, will recall the rare joys of a London leave, and there are thousands in whom the memory will awaken a sincere gratitude to Miss
Violet Loraine. After the war she acted in three more London shows, and then, on the conclusion of the run of ' London, Paris and New York,' retired from the stage on the occasion of her marriage. That was six years ago, and, in spite of offers of the most alluring character— how many of us could resist £600 a week ?—she has so far resisted the temptation to return to the stage.
Relayed from Shire Hall, Gloucester
THE Gloucester Orpheus Society, which consists of some sixty male voice singers, was established in 1899 by Sir A. Herbert Brewer , organist of Gloucester Cathedral. Its first president was Sir C. Hubert H. Parry , who held that office until his death. The society appeared with great success at a Three Choirs Festival some years ago, and in March, 1924, it gave a concert at the Central Hall, Westminster, London, when its performance received the most favourable recognition from the London critics, Mr. Percy Scholes describing it as ' one of the finest Male Voice Choirs he had heard.' It has been invited to take part in the forthcoming Concert to be given in honour of Custav Hoist, a,t Cheltenham, the composer's native town.
The present Musical Director is Mr. S. W. Underwood, whose exceptional ability as a choral conductor is widely known.
