THE forbidden land' of Tibet is becoming more accessible nowadays, and several European travellers have penetrated it in recent years. Few women, however, can rival the record of Miss Cable, who, with two other women, made a remarkable journey across Central Asia from the isolated Chinese province of Kansu to Siberia, a journey recorded in their interesting book, ' Through Jade Gate and Central Asia.' By far the most interesting of all their experiences on this adventurous trek was their visit to Tibet, which they were able to enter as. unlike most travellers, they approached it from the Chinese side. In her talk this afternoon Miss Cable will describe the strange ritual dances that the Tibetan lamas perform, fantastically garbed in curious vestments and vast and grotesque masks.

MUCH has been done of late to provide opportunities of higher education to working men, but working women are not provided for on the same scale. When, therefore, the Franchise
Appeal on behalf of the Residential College for Working Women, by Miss SYBIL THORNDIKE
Act of 1918 definitely endowed women with public responsibilities, it was felt that their educational opportunities ought to be similarly increased, and Hillcroft College, for which the appeal is being made tonight, was an attempt to achieve something in this direction. It now provides accommodation for forty women students at a time.

THE VIRTUOSO STRING QUARTET: MARJORIE HAYWARD (1st Violin), EDWIN VIRGO (2nd Violin), RAY-MOND JEREMY (Viola),
CEDRIC SHARPE (Violoncello)
GRIEG said that he wrote this Quartet when he was in the country seeking peace and refreshment after a time of spiritual restlessness and sorrow.
Of the four Movements wo are to hear the Second, a Romance, graceful, tender and intimate, and the Third, an Intermezzo in the rhythm of a Norwegian dance, the Hailing, that is partly allied to the Scottish Reel and Strathspey.
THIS is one of tho few works of Debussy in which he left the music to convey its own message without any descriptive title.
During the thirty odd years that have gone by since it was written it has gained steadily in popularity, and by now it has almost become a classic.
It is in four Movements.
The FIRST Movement is well described by the directions given to the players : ' Animated, and very decided.'
In the first few bars is g:vcn out a sort of 'motto '-a tune which runs like a thread through the whole Quartet.
The SECOND MOVEMENT is very humorous-almost grotesque. It is nearly all made out of the ' motto ' Tune.
The THIRD MOVEMENT is a subdued, emotional piece, in which the instruments are muted a good deal.
The FOURTH Movement is a kind of mixture of capricious remarks and emphatic statements.
