THE LONDON HIPPODROME
Ihe London Hippodrome has always been the home of pantomime, musical comedy, and revue. Tonight's ' Songs from the Shows ' goes back to Albert de Courville 's sensational production -' Hullo, Kagtime that set the London of 1912 by the ears, and put jazz, Ethel Levey , and the dancing chorus on the London entertainment map. Musical memories of de Courville's war-time revues follow— 'Hullo, Tango!' ' Zig-Zag.' ' Joy Bells,' and the more recent reminiscences of ' Sunny,' ' Hit the Deck.' ' Bow Bells,' Mercenary Mary ,' ' Mr. Cinders,' and Stand Up and Sing.' Some of the immensely popular songs born in the Hippodrome shows will be heard-' Alexander's Ragtime Band,' ' Who,' ' Hallelujah,' ' One Man Girl '-among them.

Should Betting be Abolished?
A discussion 'between Brigadier-
General A. C. CRITCHLEY , C.M.G., D.S.O., and Mr. D. R. GRENFELL , M.P.
These popular Saturday night debates are proving that there is nothing like controversy, plain-speaking, and no compromise for good broadcasting. The question of the rights and wrongs of betting goes right to the roots of the behaviour of men in organised society. Today, betting is organised by a minority for profit at the expense of a willing majority: the ordinary man may bet for fun, but the man who gives the odds is the long-term winner. The real issue of tonight's debate is between the right of the individual to do what he likes with his own and the right of the State to protect its citizens from themselves. Mr. Grenfell, from long observation of its effects in a Welsh mining district, is deeply opposed to betting. Brigadier-General Critchley, - who champions it, was responsible for the introduction of greyhound racing into England in 1926.

Roger Quilter was born at Brighton in 1877 and educated at Eton, where he remained until his twentieth or twenty-first year, when he went to the Hoch Conservatorium , Frankfort, to study composition under Ivan Knorr. It is interesting to note that his fellow students were Cyril Scott , Percy Grainger , Norman O'Neill and Balfour Gardiner. On Quilter's return to England it was not long before he began to make a name for himself with his songs and incidental music to plays. In 1905 Gervase Elwes introduced to the public Quilter's song-cycle To Julia, and three years later the Seven Elizabethan Lyrics. Roger Quilter has now deservedly taken a place in the front rank of modern British song composers, and as a composer of incidental music he has become no less distinguished. His style is so refined and polished, and his muse so delicate and winning, that his music is equally attractive to both the musician and the ordinary listener.
