A Running Commentary on the Association Football Match by Mr. GEORGE F. ALLISON , relayed from the Arsenal Football
Ground, Highbury that London's representation in the First Division of the League has dropped to two clubs, the famous Highbury ground has become more than ever important to London followers of the game. And the Arsenal, whatever their position in the League table, are always a grand side to watch. With their great Cup-tie tradition behind them. they rarely fail to play like a first-class team. This year they arc obviously finding it difficult to recover from the loss of their old captain, Charles Buchan , one of the subtlest brains that international Association Football has ever known. All the more reason, therefore, for Londoners to take the keenest interest in every match in which the Arsenal have a chance of improving their position and drawing further away from those dangerous places at the bottom of the table which mean that relegation is in sight. And Manchester United, the men of Cottonopolis, have their strong and vigorous backing too, for one failing of which Lancashiremen have never been suspected is lack of loyalty to their representatives when they are invading tho South. Altogether, then, in North and South alike there will be many hearts beating faster when Mr. Allison opens his broadcast after half-time this afternoon.

MUSIC is a big subject, and only a keen and erudite student can profess to be well acquainted with fifty per cent. of the works broadcast in an average week. Yet nobody wants to limit his musical appreciation by unfamiliarity with the characteristics of the music that he is going to hear. Mr.Ernest Newman 's weekly talks form an invaluable guide to the broadcast music of the next week, for ho is not only one of the most trenchant but one of the best-informed of music critics.
In Mr. Lowe himself, England has produced an athlete of world-beating calibre, and his own performance helped largely to maintain Great Britain's prestige at this year's Olympic Games. In the contest between the athletes of the British Empire and the United States, at Stamford Bridge, his fine running was again one of the chief features of the meeting. In this evening s talk he: will survey Britain's record in athletics for the year.
