Winter Distress League. Appeal by Mrs. E. M. WOOD, Chairman of the Executive Committee.
UNEMPLOYMENT is a grim tragedy at any time, but as the English winter draws on, its horrors are multiplied tenfold. The aim of the Winter Distress League is to mitigate the hardships of the unemployed-giving preference to ex-Service men and' their families-- by providing clothes for those who are so ragged that they cannot even present themselves to apply for jobs : by various employment schemes, such as supply of labour, paid at Trade Union rates, to institutions needing repair; by boarding-out their children in the country, and by other means. Help is urgently needed.

IIADOV'S piece also has the title
Valse Badinage. It was originally a little jest written for the Piano, and dedicated to the Composer's son. Then Liadov scored it for Piccolo, two Flutes, three Clarinets, Bells and Harp. The effect is very realistic.
A S most people know, the plot of Humperdinck's most typical and charming work,
Hansel and Gretel, is taken from Grimm's fairy tales. It tells of the witch who enticed boys and girls to her gingerbread house, and then cooked and ate them.
The Dream Music (also called Dream Pantomime) comes in the Second Act. Two children have lost their way in the forest. They fall asleep and dream that angels descend a golden staircase and move in procession around them. In Humperdinck's music to this scene we hear two leading themes, one a cradle-song and the other a hynin-like tune-a prayer.
