Haydn wrote his twenty-fifih symphony about 1765, when he was in his early thirties, a few years after he had entered the service of Prince Esterhazy; it is in four movements.
Vaughan Williams's Five Variants * are scored for string orchestra with harp. The composer's own note on the work reads as follows: ' The tune generally known as * " Dives and Lazarus " (though it is often sung also to other words) is very widespread among traditional singers; we know it, therefore, in many varying forms. These variants are an attempt to show these different aspects of the same tune, though none of them actually embodies any particular version of the melody.'
The Suite Mignonne of Sibelius, which dates from 1921, is scored for two flutes and strings and is in three movements: Patte: scene, Polka, and Epilogue.
The two Dances for harp and strings by Debussy were writrten in 1904 at the request of the firm of Pleyei for use in competitions in harp- playing at the Brussels Conservatoire.
Mozart's Symphony in A, K.I 34, was composed ait Sa:zburg in 1772, when he was sixteen, and is in four movement.

Appeal on behalf of the P.M. Boys' Club by Ian Hunter
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]
The P.M. Boys' Club (so roamed because at the time of its foundation it was open only in the afternoons) is designed to provide for the spiritual and physical well-being of boys up to the age of eighteen who are 'working in hotels, clubs, and restaurants in -the West End of London.
The Club was originally started under the sponsorship of Toc H some s years ago, and its first location was in Greek Street, Soho Now it has moved to a bouse in Eccleston Square where there is living accommodation for a certain number of boys, who are in the charge of a resident warden and matron. All kinds of dub activities take place; outdoor games such as football, tennis, and swimming; lectures are given; and crafts and hobbies are taught. Everything possible is done at the Club to create the background of a family life.
The Club is affilated to the L.C.C.
Youth Employment Bureau, the London Federation of Boys' Clubs, and the National Association of Boys' Clubs. An annual grant is received from the L.C.C. and the boys themselves contribute a small sum, according to what they can afford, to help with the day-to-day running expenses, but the Club is, to a great extent, dependent on voluntary donations.

Since early morning after the return from the church, and after being present at the terrible scene between Mr. Rochester and his mad wife, Jane had lain silent and motionless in her room. She knew tha-t she must leave Thornfield instantly though the thought was intolerable. Despite Mr. Rochester's frantic entreaties she mode her escape that night.
Her misery was such thai she left a parcel containing linen and twenty shillings in the coach that took her from Thornfield. Agonised in mind and now utterly destitute, she begged from house to house for food and work, but met with no success.
Eventually, after days and nights of wandering, Jane coJlaipsed from hunger and exposure outside Marsh End, t'he home of one St. John Rivers and his sistters Diana and Mary. On being questioned by the family she gave her naime as Jane Elliott. Worn out and exhausted, she was given nourishment and put to bed.

Curare is the poison that Indians of rhe South American jungle smear on the tips of their arrows. Its special properties enable the primitive tribesman to bring down his quarry in the chase or to kill his enemy. Today - after four hundred years of exploration and experiment âcurare has been brought under control, enabling doctors to use it for healing, and chemists to use it as a model for making new drugs with wider applications.
