A childlike innocence, not without certain grim undertones, pervades Mahler's Fourth Symphony, which is nevertheless a work designed on a large scale by a master-musician. The finale, in which the solo soprano takes part, depicts a child's conception of heaven. The words are taken from ' The Youth's Magic Horn,' a collection of old German folk poems. H. R.

Director of the Department of Adult Education and Extra-Mural Studies. University of Leeds
As the African territories advance to self-government, they face one of their most difficult undertakings-Ihe planning and rapid enlargement of their educational system and its adaptation to changing African needs. Nigeria has a particular problem to face here because of the different African races that make up her population. Administrators, civil servants, technicians, and above all teachers, are urgently needed-and yet education, and particularly higher education, is still in its infancy. This pressure of need and time affects the aim and quality of education: are standards being sacrificed to speed and will education be considered too much from a utilitarian point of view?
The speaker has recently returned from Nigeria where he was acting as visiting Director of Extra-Mural Studies at the University College of Ibadan.

Appeal on behalf of the Restoration Fund of Holy Trinity Church, Long Melford, Suffolk, by the Ven. Hugh Ross Norton. O.B.E., Archdeacon of Sudbury
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]
The Church of Holy Trinity, Long Melford, is one of our great wool-Churches erected between the years 1472 and 1496. Its Lady Chapel is unique. The church had few equals in beauty and magnificence, and none of the Perpendicular period excels it.
The repairs are estimated to cost at least £10,000, and are caused chiefly through the ravages of the death-watch beetle. The money to be raised is far beyond the capacity of such a small and scattered rural population consisting of fewer than 1,800 adults.
