God Save the King
In Delius's A Village Romeo and Juliet Sali and Vreli are the Romeo and Juliet who have suffered in their love for each other from the bitter enmity of their parents. They meet again after a cruel separation and, determined to have one day of pleasure together, they go to a neighbouring fair, happy in each other's company. There they are recognised and worried by importunate questions.
Anxious to be alone, they leave the fair and walk to the Paradise Garden, which is an inn, formerly the manor house of a ruined country estate. The lovely music describes their walk: it is. idyllic, but imbued with a sense of impending tragedy.

Almighty God, from whom all thoughts of truth and peace proceed: kindle, we pray thee, in the hearts of all men the true love of peace ; and guide with thy pure and peaceable wisdom those who take counsel for the nations of the earth: that in tranquillity thy kingdom may go forward, till the earth is filled with the knowledge of thy love ; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Lift up your hearts! (S.P. 560)
An appeal on behalf of the ' Under
Fives', by J. B. Priestley
The wartime welfare of children under five is one of the most urgent of national causes. Their health must be protected, they must be saved from the worst effects of the shock of war, their mothers-working in essential war industries-must be given confidence that their little ones are well cared for during the long hours when they themselves cannot be with them.
This need is being comprehensively met by the provision of day nurseries, nursery schools, and specially trained workers. The Save the Children Fund, the National Society of Day Nurseries, the National Council for Maternity and Child Welfare, and the Nursery
Schools Association of Great Britain are the national voluntary organisations engaged in this multiple task, and it is in support of their work that J. B. Priestley is making his appeal.
