BY this time, the Christmas present problem is coming very close to the most procrastinatory of us; and the longer one delays, the harder is it to find ideas as to what to buy. This deficiency Miss Lovell-Burgess will this evening help to supply.

IX the evening's contribution to an exceptionally important series of talks, the Under-secretary for Scotland will discuss the trend of world trade-a vital subject for a commercial nation, now that markets are shifting and the whole course of trade has been diverted by the war. Next week Miss Lynda Grier will talk of women in industry-another important problem of the post-war world.

THE Danse Macabre , produced in 1874, has a a programme which is roughly as follows.
The scene is a graveyard at midnight. We hear the clock strike. Death himself appears and after knocking on the graves, proceeds to tune up a fiddle. A solo violin with a mistuned top string presents that. Then skeletons come out from the graves and, while a bitter wind blows, they join, with rattling bones, in a wild leaping running dance. Just as the revelry reaches its most boisterous moment, the cock crows and Death's fiddle is heard in a last strain as he disappears along with the skeletons.
A twenty-minute broadcast of a theatrical audition, during which part of the chorus for No. 1 touring company of Virginia will be selected. The audition will be in charge of Messrs. Herbert Clayton, Jack Waller, William Mollison and Ralph Reader, whose comments may also reach the microphone.

The third centenary of the birth of John Bunyan is being celebrated this month. The Bunyan readings on Sunday afternoons have already revived the memory of 'The Pligrim's Progress' in the minds of many listeners who have not read it since their childhood, and the first part of the big Symphony Concert last Friday was devoted to Granville Bantock's musical version of Bunyan's greatest work. Tonight listeners will hear an appreciation of Bunyan from Colonel John Buchan, one of the most distinguished Scottish men of letters, historian of the Great War and of the Royal Scots Fusiliers, and author of many novels of adventure, one of which - 'Mr. Standfast' - is called after one of the characters in 'The Pilgrim's Progress.'

Listeners recently heard the Overture, 'Fra Diavolo,' by the composer of the opera to which this belongs, and reference was made to the great store of light-hearted music which is lost to the present day through the disappearance of all the merry operas of that school.
This Overture is no less bright and melodious than that of 'Fra Diavolo' and the opera was equally successful in its own day. It was given first in Paris in 1841, and three years later made a popular success at the Princess' Theatre, London, under the name by which we now know it.
LIKE Glazounov, Ippolitov-Ivanov has been recognized by the present government of Russia. In 1923 he was given the title of 'People's Artist of the Republic.' Born in 1859 he was a pupil of Rimsky-Korsakov, and has held the posts of conductor at the Tiflis Opera, and Professor of Composition in the Conservatoire at Moscow. In composing music with an Eastern flavour he is on ground which is familiar to him, and these Caucasian Sketches are full of vivid suggestion of the near East.
