' A Summing Up'
Sir Edward Grigg, K.C.M.G., K.C.V.O., and Mr Kingsley Martin.
This discussion will inevitably range round the theory and practice of the British Empire, the outstanding example of Imperialism in the modern world. This Empire, acquired, in Sir John Seely's phrase, 'in fits of absence of mind,' has developed into the British Commonwealth of Nations, justifying its existence in the interests of the governed, with the ultimate aim of becoming a free association of self-governing sovereign States. Sir Edward Grigg, an exponent of the Milner school of Imperialism, has wide experience of Imperial conditions and affairs; he was Military Secretary to the Prince of Wales on visits to Canada, Australia and New Zealand; for three years Secretary to the Rhodes Trustees, and, from 1925 to 1931 Governor and Commander-in-Chief, Kenya Colony. His opponent, Mr. Kingsley Martin, will be remembered for his four vigorous talks on the Press in The Changing World series in January, 1932; he is Editor of the independent Socialist weekly, The New Statesman, a former lecturer in history and political science at Cambridge and the London School of Economics, and an acute critic of Imperial administration.

There is only one thing really wrong with this piece of music, and that is one entirely misleading detail of its presentation. Let us look at it from another, not altogether imaginary point of view. Suppose an eighteenth century C. B. Cochran to have been in charge of the entertainment side of a kind of Viennese Trocadero and to have had under contract a brilliant young man whom he could count on to entertain his public as acceptably as today does, say, Noel Coward in another manner. This particular Herr Cochran would have made it clear to his patrons that solely for their entertainment he had commissioned young Mozart to compose yet another of his fascinating numbers to divert them while they ate, drank and amused themselves after the day's work. This is not at all an absurd supposition, and if listeners will persuade themselves that it is for the next hour still more or less the fact, they need pay no attention whatever to the academic Jabel which serves only to identify a sequence of the jolliest tunes imaginable.
