IN the series of talks, of which this is the last, an attempt has been made to show how different aspects of village life can be brightened and enriched so as' to make the English village once more a desirable home. This afternoon Mrs. Nugent Harris will review the ideas put forward by the previous talkers, and estimate what changes would he worked in the next generation if they were put into effect.
THE ever-increasing industrialization of the East constitutes an important problem in the world organization of today, and it is significant that Sir Atnl Chatterjee , tho High Commissioner for India in London, should bo this year's President of the International Labour Organization of the League of Nations—the first non-European to hold that office. The I.L.O. is likely to bo brought into increasing contact with the East in future years, and, as one who has been prominently identified with the study of industrial problems there. Sir Atnl is in a position' to exert an important influence on the relations between the Far East and the League.
IN concluding his series of talks, Mr.
Kingsley Martin will consider how we can fit ourselves to be worthy citizens of the modern world, particularly by acquiring some acquaintance with economics and modern history. and by cultivating a critical habit of mind.

FEW French composers of last century attained speedier or more consistent success than
Massenet. Ho was a brilliant student, and, of his score or more of Operas the greater part enjoyed immense popularity. At the age of thirty-four he received the decoration of the Legion of Honour, and two years later he became a member of the Academy of Fine Arts-the youngest member ever elected. Not many of his operas have survived in England, but Manon was long a favourite at Covent Garden.
His Neapolitan Scenes probably include some reminiscences of his period in Italy, to which country he. was sent to study when he won the ' Prix de Rome ' in 1863.
