WHAT Sean O'Casey , the author of Juno and the Paycock and The Plough and the Stars, is to the modern Irish stage, Liam O'Flaherty is to modern Irish fiction. Completely modern, realistic to the point of brutality, and markedly influenced by the work of the Russians and of Eugene O'Neill , his novels and short stories have attracted more attention than any other prose written in Ireland in recent years. Particularly notable were 'The Black Soul,' ' Thy Neighbour's Wife,' and ' The Informer.' a grim. nightmare story of one night's happenings in the Dublin underworld.

THE AMERICAN REVUE Star will sing
MARBÉ is a newcomer to the London microphone, but not to radio and its technique. For a year she has been broadcasting regularly every week from two important American stations, during which time she made the interesting discovery that broadcasting does not, as is so often asserted, ' kill' a song. A case in point is ' There's more to the kiss than a song composed specially for her by George Gershwin three years ago, which remains one of the most popular in her repertoire. She now wants to make the acquaintance of the British public. and thinks that the radio is the best way in which this can be done.
THE DON COSSACK QUARTET
THE Don Cossacks have done as much as anyone to spread the cult of Russian choral music. From folk-songs to the songs of Rimsky-Korsakov, their repertoire is complete, and their execution has been praised by critics in every capital in Europe.
