Women who play hockey could ask no better guide to tactics than Mrs. Bridge. As Miss K. E. Lidderdale she was the most famous centre-forward the game has produced; she played for England when she was sixteen, and thenceforward every year until her marriage, when she retired. Returning next year to play in the back division, she was immediately chosen to play for England as right back. She is the author of a very useful text-book on hockey, and is now a well-known coach.

THE B.B.C. SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA Conducted by GRANVILLE BANTOCK
Symphony No. 5 in B Flat
Military March in C (' Reiter March ')
(Symphonic Orchestration by Liszt) rpHERE is a good deal of Schubert's music which he himself never heard performed, and we have it on the authority of Sir George Grove , who wrote tho programme notes for the Saturday concerts at the Crystal Palace, that when this Symphony was played there in 1873 -more than half a century after its composition-it was its first public performance. Composed, along with four earlier Symphonies, before Schubert had passed out of his 'teens, it is full of all the youthful exuberance of spirits that wo look for in his early work. There is no trace in it of the sadness which wo can hear in many of his later works; it is bubbling over with happiness throughout.
There are four movements in the traditional form, a bustling first movement with the conventional two principal themes, a finely melodious slow movement, a merry Minuet, and an energetic, joyous, quick movement at the end.
THE roads of England have undergone a a conspicuous revolution in the last generation. At the end of last century the old main roads had become abandoned by all but slow-moving local traffic ; the mail-coach and post chaise were mouldering in stable yards whilst the railways carried passengers and mail and the lumbering carrier's wagon had a monopoly of the road. Then came the petrol motor, and the roads revived, until they are now a problem that is ever present in people's, minds. In tonight's discussion Mr. S. F. Edge , a pioneer of motoring in England, and still one of the most prominent figures in the motor trade, and Mr. Filson Young , who has written much on the human side of motoring, will survey this recent renaissance of the road.
