BEETHOVEN'S SONATAS FOR VIOLIN AND
Played by ERNEST WHITFIELD and KENDAL TAYLOR
No. 9 ('Kroutzer '), Second Movement
THE Second Movement is an air with four
Variations. The Air is lengthy and contains in its first notes the elements of syncopation. The Variations are very clear and can be followed without description.
'BUDGET DAY,' when the Chancellor of the D Exchequer introduces his Budget for the year, is always one of the occasions on which the House of Commons is packed to its utmost capacity, and the Budget speech is awaited with a degree of expectancy not very often raised nowadays by any Parliamentary speech. And this is only natural, for this afternoon Mr. Churchill tells us all how much we must contribute to the State, directly and indirectly, out of our own income next year. Last year, for the first time, the Budget speech and its reception by the House wore described over the microphone, the same evening, by Mr. Wickham Steed ; and everyone who heard it will welcome the opportunity of again hearing so important an event summed up by a famous journalist and publicist with exceptional experience of public affairs.
ALTHOUGH her name may bo sought in vain in the standard reference books, Josephine Butler was without doubt one of the noblest women who figured in the public life of the nineteenth century. Bom a hundred years ago, she played her part in the struggle to better the lot of women in days when a woman who entered into public affairs was considered fair game for every sort of hostility, from physical violence to sneering contempt. It is appropriate that her memory should be honoured on this
,occasion by Lady Astor, one of the most prominent women politicians of the present day, and the first woman M.P. to take her seat in the House.
There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
