Dr. C. DELISLE BURNS , D.Litt. (Stevenson Lecturer in Citizenship in the University of Glasgow): Conventions and Modernity '
DR. DELISLE BURNS continues his review of the changes in social life in the last thirty years, with a reasoned analysis of what will seem to many the most outstanding change of all. Conventions today seem very different from what they were last century. The position of children has altered.- Are the standards of conduct for ' Mrs. Brown ' being provided by ' Mrs. Smith ' to the extent that they were ? Are we being standardized or revolutionized ? Next week Dr. Burns goes on to discuss one of the chief factors in the changes of convention-the Woman's Movement.

A BRILLIANT student of the Royal
Academy of Music, where his principal instrument was the viola, Eric Coates soon found himself in the front rank of players, and was for some years principal viola of the Queen's
Hall Orchestra. He was a distinguished chamber music player, too. While still a member of tho Queen's Hall Orchestra, he had a good deal of his own orchestral music produced at its Promenade and other concerts. Since 1919 he has practically given up playing, and has devoted himself to composition. Much of his music is in lighthearted vein, graceful and melodious, and all marked by thoroughly sound workmanship and mastery of the resources of the orchestra. The names of his best known
Suites indicate quite clearly the direction in which he is happiest - the Countryside, Summer Days, Wood Nymphs , The Merrymakers : his music does indeed illustrate in a fresh and wholesome way the sunnier aspects of the world.
He has been no less successful as a song composer, and in that direction, too, his name is well and honourably known to listeners.
