by ERNEST LUSH WILLIAM BAINES died at the age of twenty-three in 1922. He was a remarkable boy. Up till two years before he died he had never heard a string quartet or a symphony orchestra (how impossible in these days of broadcasting), and yet, being self-taught, he had actually written chamber works and orchestral music of astonishingly fine quality. He did not live long enough, of course, to leave much behind, but what he did leave (mostly piano music) showed such rare promise and is so mature in form and beauty, that the early death of Baines ranks as part of that tragedy of early deaths from which British music has suffered in recent years.

ROGER SACHEVERELL COKE
The Pavilion, Bournemouth
Symphony Concert No. 24 of the 39th
ROGER SACHEVERELL COKE'S Pianoforte Concerto No. 2 in E minor was written in 1933, when the composer was twenty years of age, and has so far received four performances, the first being at the Pump Room, Bath. Mr. Coke left Eton three years ago and has since established himself as a composer and pianist. He has already a number of compositions, including chamber music, to his credit.
The Concerto to be played this afternoon consists of the usual three movements, the music of which, unlike a great deal of contemporary music, is romantic in appeal. The first movement, Fantasy, opens with an introduction in which a motive is heard which becomes one of the principal themes in the movement and makes an appearance both in the ' Romance ' and the ' Caprice '. Thus, the whole work is imbued with a feeling of continuity.

'The City of London-Banking'
Professor T. E. G. GREGORY , D.Sc.
IN ms BROADCAST this evening Professor T. E. G. Gregory will point out that banks are not the mysterious things some people would have us think, and that they are far from remote from the lives of the ordinary citizen.
This talk will qeal with the ' Big
Five ', and what they do, and such an investigation opens up a number of important questions: The relation of the commercial banks to the Bank of England, the connection of the specialised money market both to the banks and ' the Bank '. What makes the whole system hang together ? What is the precise place of the Bank of England in the national life ?
This clears the ground for Professor
Gregory's talk on Insurance and Investment next Wednesday.

Sir William Bragg, O.M., K.B.E., F.R.S.
Many of the colours of Nature depend on the use of 'dyes'. One of the most universal of these is chlorophyll, which is responsible for the green of vegetation. The colours of flowers depend mainly on a class of natural dyes called 'anthocyanins.' The colours of the sky and the haloes round the moon are caused by fine particles floating in the air, or by the molecules of the air itself.
This is a synopsis of Sir William Bragg's talk tonight.
