The attention of history teachers in secondary schools is particularly drawn to this series. Every week a single speaker who is an expert either on home or foreign affairs will discuss the important items in the current news. It is believed that these talks may be very useful in connection with the teaching of modem history.

Herr MAX KROEMER
The first lesson in a new German course, which will extend over two years. The course is designed primarily for the study of the language from the very beginning, for the benefit of those listeners who have no knowledge at all of German. At the same time, listeners whose German has grown rusty will find much to interest and benefit them in the lessons. Max Kroemer is Instructor of German at the Regent Street Polytechnic. London, and for the London County Council. The text used throughout the first year will be ' A German Course,' by F. L. Sock and L. F. Thompson (Longmans, Green, 3s. 6d.)

HILDEGARD ARNOLD (Violoncello)
This popular suite of dances originally formed part of the incidental music written for the production, in 1909, of Maeterlinck's fairy play, The Blue Bird. Those who saw the play, which tells how two children, Tyltyl and Mytyl, pass for a time from the Land of Memory and find adventure in a cosmic world of fantasy, will remember the sympathetic charm and beauty of the production, and how aptly and gracefully Norman O'Neill 's music fitted the mood of the play. The first number in this suite, ' Dance of the Mist-Maids,' accompanies the passage of the children through a mist which blots out the Land of Memory. The second is a ' Dance of Fire and Water,' each fighting for supremacy. The third is the ' Dance of the Stars ' in the Palace of Night ; and the last, the ' Dance of the Hours,' who came out of the grandfather clock when Tyltyl turned the magic stone.

Radio's finest burlesque team take the air again with another wildly improbable, wildly funny rag in which regulation hero, villain, heroine and squire perform the regulation inanities round and about the regulation necklace. Listeners to the Melluish Brothers' previous shows of this type - Only a Mill Girl, Beaten at the Post, The King's Double - will need no inducement to hear their latest. Strangers to the team are warned to expect a high speed show, bristling with the broader kind of humour, and sauced with melody. Nervous listeners to this 'burglaresque' are advised by the authors to remove their spectacles.
