THERE are many ways of travelling
for nothing, so long as one does not got founds out; but to travel nearly a hundred miles in a day for' a perfectly lawful shilling is rather a feat. Mr. Divina achieved it by means of a shilling all-day ticket on the London trams, and the amusing page of that crowded day forms the subject of his talk this afternoon.

THE mysteries of finance are becoming increasingly important to the man in the street, as he sees international waves of inflation or deflation, high or low prices, sweeping over the world ; but that does not make them any easier to understand. This evening Mr. D. A. Ross , who will be remembered for his previous broadcasts, will give the first of three simple talks designed to make the workings of high finance comprehensible to the ordinary man. *

THE Welsh Rhapsody (written for the Cardiff Musical Festival of 1904) is woven without seam, but has four pretty definite sections, a little like those of a Symphony, and each of them grows out of some famous old Welsh melody or melodies.
The FIRST (a stately one) is based on ' Loudly Proclaim.'
The SECOND (a skittish one) is made out of ' Hunting the Hare' and 'The Bells of Aberdovey.'
The THIRD (a tender one) brings in ' David of the White Rock.'
Tho FOURTH (a march-like Finale) uses the famous ' Men of Harleeh.'
THE SHEPHERD KING (Il Be
Pustore) is a short ' Music
Drama ' (Mozart's own title) in two Acts. It is an early work, written, when Mozart was Director of Music to the Archbishop of Salzburg, for the celebrations which were arranged when the Archduke Maximilian (the younger brother of Marie Antoinette ) paid the Archbishop a visit.
The music, in its quiet expressive-ness, beautifully fits the spirit of this . charming love song.
THE so-called Hymn ' was the song of the Queen of Shemakha, in which she made love to foolish old King Dodon. He had gone out to fight her, for she was coming to invade his kingdom ; but instead he was conquered by her charm.
