BRAHMS' PIANO WORKS

Ballad in G Minor (Op. 118, No. 3)
Intermezzo in E Flat Minor (Op. 118, No. 6)
Intermezzo in C (Op. 119, No. 3) fTIHE Ballad is one of the set of six pieces that make up Op. 118, written in 1893, the composer's sixtieth year. It is short, crisp and vigorous, with a sweet lyrical interlude in the middle. A momentary reminiscence of this gentler strain forms its happy end.
The minor-key Intermezzo is a stirring, dramatic piece, full of vivid life and, perhaps it may be felt, a sense of conflict.
The other, the major-key Intermezzo, is marked
'graceful and jocose.' Its happy little tune gobs singing along beneath an overhanging arch of light foliage.
THE argument in favour of democratic government insists that all citizens have an equal interest in what the state does, and that the state will not be successful in knowing what to do except by knowing what is happening to its members. This it can only do when the opinions of its members are freely offered and fully guide the activities of those who rule. This only occurs when those who rule are freely chosen by those who are to be governed by them. If, therefore, the object of social organization is response to human demands, that system which organizes the widest basis of consent to the rules made seems the most satisfactory. But there must accompany the acceptance of this thesis the institutions which our experience of history suggests as necessary to its fulfilment. With the development of this argument and its implications, Professor Laski will conclude his series of talks.

He taught in the Conservatoire at Helsingfors, was principal cellist in the Philharmonic Orchestra, and conducted the Finnish opera there. He succeeded Weingartner in the direction at Munich.

An Eye-Witness Account by 'IXION'
S.B. from Liverpool
THE most important road race for motor-cycles held in Great Britain is undoubtedly the Senior Tourist Trophy, which was run tcday over the famous course in the Isle of Man. It is a race of thrills and spills, adventure and excitement, and the great crowds that gather at such spots as the Ramsay Hairpin Corner and Ballig Bridge never have reason to feel dissatisfied with their day's sport. Moreover, it is a valuable opportunity for British manufacturers to show what their machines and riders can do in competition with the pick of their rivals from abroad. The race will be described tonight by ' Ixion,' of The Motor Cycle, one of the best known authorities on motor-cycle racing, who will just have returned to Liverpool from the Isle of Man after seeing the race.
