Slavonic Dances , Op. 46
A Major E Minor D Major
A Flat Major
DVORAK was a Slav, and was very proud of the fact.
His nationality gives his music idiomatic flavours, and his early life among humble folk influenced it no less. The Slavonic Dances, which first brought him fame, will remind many of the Hungarian Dances of Brahms.

In a New Zoo Sketch
THOSE who have already been to the Zoo with the Buggins family in that most amusing book, The Bugginses by Mabel Con standuros and Michael Hogan (Hutchinson, 3s. 6d.), will enjoy a second visit tonight. Whether this expedition will be more successful than the last remains to bo seen. On the first occasion, you may remember, Grandma made a frightful nuisance of herself by obstinately demanding to be shown strange beasts of her own invention and finally allowing the ostrich to eat her hat-and part of her hair. Miss Constanduros, with something very like genius, makes this humorous and pathetic family from Walworth very real to us.

A PPROPRIATELY, we are to hear this evening an excerpt from one of the gayest musical shows now running-and an all-British show, too. So this is Love ! / is notable for its speed and zest and for the sparkling syncopation provided by the pianistic firm of Clarke, Hedloy and Myddleton. It is a common belief that a musical comedy needs no plot. But there is a plot here and wo are butting right into the middle of it. The Hon. Peter Maiden (Cyril Ritchard ) and his secretary, Pamela Stuart (Madge Elliot ) are very much in love with each other, but Peter is rolling in money and Pamela had for a long time refused to marry him for fear of being thought a ' gold digger.' An American friend, Hap. J. Hazzard (Laddie Cliff) and Peter's stockbroker, Potty Griggs (Stanley Lupino), have concocted a plot to make Pamela believe that Peter has lost all his money in Brazilian stocks, whereupon she has accepted the hand of her delighted suitor. But the course of true love does not run so smoothly-not, at least, in the ' book ' of a musical show. There is also a certain Kitty Carleton (Sylvia Leslie ) who wants Peter for herself. She is quite naturally furious about his engagement. Now, as they say, read on I
