These
Reunion notices will now be given in this period, together with the various general notices connected with Government and other Public Services, such as Postal Arrangements, Civil Service examinations and Regulations which are of concern to the general public.

-XII Tho Rt. Hon. Lord EUSTACE PERCY : ' Our Problem Today '
LORD EUSTACE PERCY concludes tonight the series on democracy which he and Mr. Leonard Woolf have shared.
Last week he pointed out that, a common element in experiments of the kind of Fascism and Communism is the conception that citizenship involves certain definite sacrifices. The supremo question of the present day is whether a nation can revive this conception of sacrifice without abandoning the British tradition of representative government. Tho British citizen has different responsibilities in home, imperial, and international affairs today as compared with those ho had in 1900. How can political, social, and economic organization he adapted to discharge these responsibilities ? On January 7, Lady Passfield (Mrs. Sidney Webb) gives the first of threo talks on ' The Diseases of Organized Society,' which servo as a preliminary basis for talks on Parliamentary and world Government by Professor W. G. S. Adams and Sir Arthur Salter respectively.

IN the latter part of the fifteenth century the French Chanson had an influence on the music of the whole of Europe, which could not easily be exaggerated. But France, as its frontiers define it today, cannot claim the whole credit; there was then no real dividing line between Northern French and Flemish music, and the precise historian of tho period is careful to speak of the Gallo-Belgian school. Its chansons had a tremendous vogue, and many of them found their way into print, not only in France, but in Antwerp and Louvain, and even as far from home as Nuremberg and Venice. They began, too, quite early in the following century to have a big influence on instrumental music ; many were adapted as pieces for the lute, or for keyboard instruments.' As listeners will hear in these examples, their gaiety and unaffected grace are easily recognizable as foreshadowing the qualities which the rest of the world has ever since thought of as distinctively French.
