Professor LEONARD RUSSELL : 'Science and Mysticism'
by FLORENCE EASTON (soprano)
FLORENCE EASTON was born in Yorkshire, played in public as a pianist at eight years old, decided at fourteen to become a singer, and duly made her début at Covent Garden Opera House Xas Cho-Cho-San in Madam Butterfly. Since then she has sung in that opera over three hundred times, and altogether has appeared in eighty-eight operatic rôles in British, German, American and most other great opera houses. Caruso, whose own repertory was pretty considerable, said of Florence Easton. ' Her head is a music box. She lifts the lid, takes out one record and puts in another. That is the only way any singer could remember so many operas '.

van Der Gucht
By the Rev. Canon A. C. DEANE, M.A.
LOYALTY played a big part in the natures and sacrifices of these ' Pillars of the Church '. We have had an instance of loyalty to a king and another of loyalty to conscience. Perhaps loyalty both to conscience and to a friend was the governing influence in the life of Richard William Church.
In 1839 he was a young man with the world at his feet. He had taken First Class honours at Oxford; he had been elected Fellow of Oriel; he was appointed tutor and ordained. But two years later, out of friendship for another brilliant graduate and his own sympathy with a movement, Church threw up his means of livelihood and the rich promise of his career. For the Oxford Movement had set England smouldering, and Newman's ' Tract Ninety ' turned the smoke into flames, and Church, his friend, acting as proctor, vetoed its condemnation. Seven years went by and Church was an obscure country parson.
When he was over fifty he refused a canonry at Worcester ; when he was nearly sixty he reluctantly accepted the Deanery of St. Paul's. He will always be remembered for these two things : he was one of the few churchmen to keep his head over the controversy aroused by Darwin's ' Origin of Species ', and Cardinal Newman always went to see him on his occasional visits to London in his last years. For, through all the divisions and storms of life, they remained old friends.

JOHN ARMSTRONG (tenor) (Poems by J. VON EICHENDORFF)REINHOLD GLIÈRE is scarcely known in this country except by this quartet, which is in the repertory of most of the leading quartets, but which figures only occasionally in programmes. His first symphony had its first performance in England at a Promenade Concert in 1906. Gliere is a professor of composition in Moscow.
