An Eye-Witness Account by Mr. THOMAS MOULT of last day's play in the match at Old Trafford. S.B. from
Manchester SURREY 'S visits to Old Trafford have always something of the character of a challenge from the South to the North. Whatever may be their positions in the Championship table, neither Lancashire nor Surrey ever fails to play a game typical of the land of cricket that one associates with the North and South respectively at their best; Surrey's celebrated opening pair would draw a crowd on any ground, and the quick-scoring big hitters lower down in their batting order provide a spectacle that Lancashire crowds always enjoy, though they may not encourage their own batsmen to provide it. Against Surrey's brilliant batting Lancashire pits all the steadiness and tenacity of the North -deadly bowling, tireless fielding and batting that never breaks down.
Mr. Thomas Moult , who gives the description, is a poet, novelist and anthologist. and has at various times been an art-critic, dramatic critic and music critic.
Mr. Val Gielgud is a master of what may be called 'the spoken essay.' To be able to talk wittily and interestingly on general topics is a rare gift, and one which Mr. Gielgud, who is an actor and writer of distinction, possesses in a marked degree.

Sonata in A (Op. 101), Last two Movements
AFTER the March Movement (with which
A yesterday's recital closed) Beethoven writes a very brief slow passage which is marked ' slow and full of great longing '—a. page of the loveliest texture, broken in upon by a reminiscence of the Sonata's opening Movement, ' like a gleam of sunshine,' as someone has happily said. Without further delay we are plunged into the long and magnificently built up Finale.
