Mrs. NATHAN, ' Village Life in China'
THE average newspaper-reader has lately got a confused impression of the Chinese as a nation composed entirely of war-lords, bandits, pirates, and soldiers carrying umbrellas. This afternoon Mrs. Nathan will describe life as it is normally lived in a village in Northern China ; no bandits or war-lords about, but a simple, friendly people, living in low, brown huts with ' Devil-Screens ' before the doors, windows-of tattered paper, and charcoal fires burning under the family beds.

PICTURES, sculpture, and music have been
dealt with in this series, and now Sir Banister Fletcher comes to consider the appreciation of architecture-the art that, more than any other, is truly in the street.' Sir Banister Fletcher is himself both a distinguished architect and an authoritative writer on the subject, his books including ' A History of Architecture on the Comparative Method.' 'Architecture and the Humanities,' and ' The English Home.'

THE Composer at the Piano
MR. ROWLEY is a London organist and teacher who was born at Shepherd's Bush some thirty-six years ago. As a composer, younger listeners probably know more about him than most of the older ones, for, in his compositions, he has until' lately given more attention to children than to grown-ups. His music is sung and played in many schools.
He has, however, written much music of more general aim. One of his works, a fanciful Opera, The Princess who Lost a Tune, has received an Award from the Carnegie Music Trust.

Mr. P. F. WARNER : Reminiscences of W. G. Grace '
NEW cricket records are made every year; new personalities arise and flourish, but none has ever dominated the game as W. G. Grace did a generation ago. ' The Champion' they called him, and his title was never in dispute. The man who made centuries on every county ground, whose scores reached monstrous figures season after season, whose tally of centuries has only just been equalled even on the billiard-table pitches of today; whose marvellous batting alone prevented his living in cricket history for his captaincy and his bowling-the bearded Colossus was beyond doubt the most remarkable figure the game has ever known. Mr. Warner's star was rising above the horizon when W. G.'s was at its zenith, and lie can tell many stories of the great man at first hand.
