This Symphony had its first performance last year by the Penzance Orchestral Society. It is in one continuous movement, divided, however, into three main sections. The first of these sections consists of a set of four variations on the theme of the first subject. The middle section is a slow movement, and the Finale a fugue which for the first part of its development is orthodox, but thereafter becomes very free in treatment.

Les nuits d'ete (Summer Nights)
Lo spectre de la rose (The Wraith of a Rose) Sur Ics lagunes (On the Lagoons)
' Summer Nights', the best-known group of Berlioz's songs-particularly when sung with orchestra-is a setting of six poems by Theophile Gautier. The first, ' Villanelle', is pastoral ; the second is the spirit of a rose speaking of its life and death on beauty's breast; On the Lagoons ' is in the lilt of a barcarolle.

Voluntary Social Services
Miss MARJORIE GRAVES, M.P.
Tonight's broadcast is the first of four talks that will comprise the last group of this interesting series. They will deal with a subject that, again, is in many ways controversial. Which is the better? Voluntary social service or State control? The running of our hospitals under a voluntary system is our own particular characteristic, tradition, and pride. They are maintained by voluntary subscription; brilliant surgeons give their honorary services; nurses hold the ideal higher than the reward. And if all this should be a Government responsibility, as advocates on the other side contend, it must never be forgotten that it is the stimulus of voluntary activity which has made the health of the nation the growing concern of Government Departments today. Miss Marjorie Graves, who talks tonight and again on December 6, will not touch on the controversial aspect of the question, but will make an historical survey of the origin, growth, and effect of voluntary social service in this country. An authority on history, this particular subject her special interest, she is ideally suited to her task. She was elected Conservative Member for South Hackney in 1931, is a Borough Councillor of Holborn, a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society, and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts.
