NOT only in his own country, where they look up to him as a national hero, but in other paris of Europe too, there are many who think of Sibelius as the greatest living composer, the one who is adding most to mankind's wealth of music. Until recently we should have had to base any estimate of him on a few pieces of definitely patriotic intention, like En Saga and Finlantlia, but we are steadily being better informed, thanks to the enterprise of such conductors as Sir Henry Wood , Sir Dan Godfrey and Sir Hamilton Harty. This second symphony, and the third when we hear it, will bo recognized as making big steps away from the orthodox tradition by which number one is more or less bound, towards the freedom which Sibelius claims, and of which he makes such strong and self-reliant use.

Professor JULIAN HUXLEY : Man and Reality '
THIS evening Professor Julian Huxley , the distinguished biologist who introduced this sub-scries five weeks ago, returns to summarize the scientific view of man in the light of the information imparted in Dr. John Baker 's four talks. The physicist looks at the universe as, an outsido observer. The biologist must include himself and his mind in what he studies. In trying to define reality, he is brought up against the mind in all its aspects, emotional and aesthetic, as well as intellectual. Reality must include all these aspects. We probably never shall attain complete scientific or philosophic understanding, but science can make the world, or certain aspects of it, interesting and intellectually coherent. The talk concludes the first two parts of the science series. On January 6 begins a symposium on Science and Civilization : the speakers are to include such distinguished men as Lord Russell, J. B. S. Haldane , Sir Oliver Lodge , and Hilaire Belloc.
