HAYDN'S warm, genial nature is reflected in most of his music, especially, perhaps, in his String Quartets, which are of all ' classical' music the most easy-going to hear.
This one is called the ' Hornpipe ' Quartet, because the last Movement dances along much in that style.
Its other three parts are respectively a piquant opening Movement, based on two contrasted Tunes, then a short and tender song-like piece, with the usual Minuet as Third Movement.

'THE OLD VIC' is, of course, a national institution. It may be regrettable, but we persist in keeping the flag of Shakespeare flying in the two parts of the country least accessible to the West Endiof London—Stratford - on-Avon and the Waterloo Road. In the latter Miss Baylis reigns supreme. She has made the ' Old Vic' a household word under her régime. She is acknowledged throughout the Empire for her services to Shakespeare and she is well on the way to making that Empire's capital safe for Shakespeare's plays.

A Play in Three Scenes by Miles MALLESON
Adapted from the Tale ' What Men Live By,' by LEO TOLSTOY
Incidental Music as specially written for the first production of the play by NORMAN O'NEILL
The Characters :
A Russian Noble
The Scene : A Russian peasant hut
Tolstoy, the great Russian mystic, whose centenary was recently celebrated, believed so implicitly in the rewards of poverty that he divested himself of his rank and wealth to live the life of a peasant.
' What Men Live By ' is a story of how it was given to a poor cobbler and his family, because of their poverty, to entertain an archangel unawares.
