Dr. N. GRAY HILL : 'Rheumatism in Children'
DR. N. GRAY HILL is Deputy
Medical Superintendent of the Queen Mary's Hospital at Carshalton, which is the L.C.C. 'Children's
Hospital. At this hospital research is undertaken on the problem of avoiding rheumatism in children, and there are special wards devoted to rheumatic patients alone. Dr. Gray Hill is particularly connected with this side of the hospital's work. This should be a most valuable talk. for in the case of rheumatism, as many adult listeners will be the first to agree, prevention is not only better, but a great deal easier, than cure.

The Rt. Hon. Lord EUSTACE PERCY, M.P.: 'Tho
IN last, week's talk Lord Eustaco Percy described the development of political conditions up to 1004, as influenced hy the social and political ideals of the nineteenth century. This led to the deadlock of political and economic competition in Kuropo that culminated in the outbreak of the War. Yet it is doubtful whether that world-catastropho removed the deadlock. Is western civilization tending to settle down into a stationary stage ? How far is the present economic depression due to persistence of out-of-date political ideas and methods ? Lord Eustace Percy answers those questions tonight; and in the next two talks discusses whether the present difficulties can be solved by patching, or if a complete scrapping of the system of the past is inevitable.

JACK PAYNE and his B.B.C. DANCE ORCHESTRA
DANCE hands may come and dance hands may go (they do'), hut Jack Payne 's band remains the most popular with listeners. This is quite understandable, since it is not only a band of the most versatile kind; but it is also hoard far more often than any other. Jack Payne is almost overwhelmed by his enormous daily correspondence—letters ' requesting ' certain tunes or asking for his photograph, enthusiastic letters from syncopation ' fans,' bitter letters from musical highbrows who think they detect a bar or so of Beethoven in the latest arrangement of Little Baby Blues, screeds from young composers offering ' hits,' and so on. Jack Payne is one of Savoy Hill 's hardest workers. Besides broadcasting and rehearsing for broadcasting, the band appears on the music halls and records for the gramophone. It was formed in February, 1028. when Jack Payne , who had formerly been in charge of the orchestra that Broadcast oh many occasions from the Hotel Cecil, took over the position previously held by Sidney Firman. In nearly four years the band has broadcast more than 3,000 tunes. During the past year it has played 1,000 tunes in the course of 650 hours broadcasting, for which 1,500 hours of rehearsal were required. Its record performance was the playing of 65 tunes in -a day's work of 4 1/2 hours broadcasting. On a busy day of recording, broadcasting and appearing at a music hall the band has often played (with rehearsals) for 8 1/2 hours.
