MISS MABEL CONSTANDUROS is firmly established in the hearts of a host of listeners. and. in the recent voting for items for the Children's Hour ' Request Week.' she was second favourite. Miss Constanduros takes an immense amount of pains in both the preparation and the broadcasting of her Sketches—especially for the Children's Hour, of which she is an enthusiastic supporter.

HEIMKEHR is the song of one who, coming home at evening time, expresses his joy at the happy prospect of reunion with a loved ona.
In the second song a lover has a vision of life with his sweetheart as a glorious progress ; with her. even in death the vision will not fade : the glory will spread through all eternity.
Allerseelen, quiet and flowing, is a song of tender remembrance ; ' wie einst in Mai' (' as once in May ') is the refrain to each verse.
Wie sollten is a song of urging, on the old, old theme. ' Out with it-we love each other.' etc. The triplet figure in the accompaniment adds a spur to the lover's persuasion.
