Mrs. LETTICE RAMSEY 'Real Life and Make-belief '
EVERY child loves 'pretending' : and this, like all its activities, is useful to its development. Make-belief gives the child an outlet for its feelings which it might not have in real life, and thus makes its adjustment to real life easier. Also it can exercise its ingenuity and imagination in this pretence world.
A normal child does not mix up the real world with the pretence world, if care is taken ; he must not be led to think that fairy stories are real. Mrs.
Ramsey will explain all this, with examples, and give suggestions on how to foster the pretending ' instinct in children in the best way.

Have we a. Right to Happiness, and are we becoming Happier ?
THE early democrats said that everybody had an equal right to happiness, and that to promote this right was the tirst duty of a Government. However reasonable this may seem, it was a new idea when it was promulgated, and is clearly beset with pitfalls now. Mr. Leonard Woolf this evening will compare, firstly, Government provision for happiness, and secondly, actual enjoyment of happiness in various classes of the population in 1900 and in 1931. From the point of view of obtaining happiness, the question of occupying leisure time arises. Next week Mr. Woolf will discuss whether everyone really ought to bo treated as equal.

H.H. THE AGA KHAN, G.C.S.I., G.C.I.E.,
by MARIAN ANDERSON (Contralto)
LIKE her fellow-artist, Paul Robeson ,
Marian Anderson was born to a heritage of such singing as originally inspired the ' Spirituals ' ; and where others have recourse to ' interpreta tion,' she has but to call upon her instinct. And, again like Robeson, this instinct carries Miss Anderson smoothly into the difficult field of lieder-singing, and again she triumphs. It is when we are privileged to hear such artists as Mr. Robeson and Miss Anderson that it is most strongly borne upon us how slanderous it is to attribute to the same source as the 'Spirituals' that item of American exports known to ' Boachcomber ' and his readers as swarnpstuff.'

The play adapted and produced by LANCE SIEVEKING
FOUR crooks, three men and a woman, meet in a top room in a deserted office building on the eve of a big coup, to learn that they have been betrayed. One of the four is the traitor: which ? They sit down to find the guilty one, agreed upon tho punishment-a bullet through the heart. and an eight-storey drop. Listen to their conversation, in which one unguarded word may mean death to the speaker.
