Professor HENRY CLAY : ' What is
Private Enterprise ? "
IN his last talk three weeks ago,
Mr. D. H. Robertson asked some
Pertinent and searching questions in connection with solving the problem of poverty and its persistence. The first of these was concerned with private enterprise in industry, and in these next six talks in the Monday series Professor Clay will explain what private enterprise has done to adapt itself to changed conditions. In this evening's talk he considers the character and scope of private enterprise, whether it is being changed by the expansion of the scale on which industry is conducted, by the growth of great combinations, and by the 'spread of joint stock companies. Professor Henry Clay , who was for eight years a lecturer for Workers' Educational Tutorial Classes under Leeds, Londonjand Oxford Universities, was attached at the end of the War to the Ministry of Labour ; he was then successively a Fellow of New College, Oxford, and Professor of Political Economy and of Social Economics at Manchester University. He is the author of several important booka on Economics.

Mr. S. P. B. MAIS
THIS is the first talk in a new series, by S. P. B. Mais , the ex-schoolmaster who has, in the last year, established himself as a microphone personality. ' The Unknown Island' is not some exotic reef-fringed spot in the South Seas, it is the Britain that we all of us think we know. But how many of us really do ? The state of foreign exchanges is forcing many people to spend their holidays in their native land; are they properly prepared to make the most of such a real opportunity to discover its beauty and its character, its interest and its romance ? They may learn a great deal from these personal explorations conducted by Mr. Mais; he has taken the trouble to know England as few people do. He will discover for us some of the interest and romance that lies off the beaten track of all our highways and byways.

RAVEL'S chamber music is much easier to understand, even on a first hearing, than most of the work of the moderns. Although what he has to say is all new, the language he uses is to all intents and purposes the straightforward idiom with which the older masters have made us familiar. This trio is the most important of his chamber music ; reminding us here and there of the string quartet, it is a bigger work. The first of its four movements flows throughout on broadly melodious lines; the chief part of the second hurries along at breakneck speed, but in the middle section there is a splendid melody. The third movement sticks pretty closely to the traditional form of the passacaglia, a movement built up, like a ehaconne, on a ground bass-a short and simple theme. Ravel makes a very effective and dignified movement of it here, reminding us of his descent from the Romantic composers, though with something of sternness in his make-up. The last movement is brilliant and vivacious with a hint of the poetic imagery of The Fairy
Garden in the Mother Goose Suite. But the whole work is on a more virile plane than that light-hearted suite; it is one of Ravel's loftiest conceptions. The attentive listener will note that the themes of all four movements are akin one to another, though in the last the melodic line is turned upside-down.
