7.0 Mr. EDGAR WARD : ' Photography-II,
Photography for the Motorist '
LAST week Mr. Ward dealt with ' that holiday snapshot album,'- and no doubt in the intervening period any number of amateur photographers have put some of his advice into practice. This evening he will pay special attention to the motorist who wants to use his camera intelligently, and who, of course, as he has not got to carry it all the time, can indulge in a much larger camera, use plates instead of films, and generally do the thing in style. Any listeners who are not already familiar with Mr. Ward's qualifications to give photographic advice should look at the sea coast photograph which forms the frontispiece to this issue, and they will realize that he has all the experience necessary for the task.

IN the long and almost cloistered life of serenity which César Franck devoted with a real singleness of purpose to music, heedless not only of other interests, but even of the success or failure, in the popular sense, of his own works, he made use of practically every known form. In no one can he be said to have been specially at home, but of all it is steadily becoming clearer that he enriched and widened their power and scope, revealing an individuality at once strong and gracious.
His one Symphony bears the date 1889. It is unlike the clasical models in this, that the principal theme appears in all the Movements, and in this, too, that the materials are developed with a freedom such as the classical masters did not anticipate.
The first Movement begins with a slow section, in which the lower strings foreshadow the principal tune of the main first Movement. There is another theme which the attentive listener will recognize as furnishing the material for the chief time of the last Movement. After the first section of the chief part of the first Movement, in quick time, the slow tune from the introduction is repeated, and when the quick part has been heard again, it gives way to a new theme. After that we hear the great second tune which has a large share in the course of the Symphony. The whole orchestra plays it with noble emphasis.
In the slow Movement, the English horn has the first tune, and the second is really a modification of the big second tune of the first Movement. There follows a section which is in form and tune like a Scherzo with its alernative Trio, and then the slow Movement returns. Again the attentive listener will hear two of the earlier themes played togeth&r.
The last Movement begins with a new tune, a joyous one in the major mode, but much of the Movement is based on tunes of the earlier part of the work, and again the second tune from the first Movement is prominent.
