' Trade Unionism comes of Age '
H. L. BEALES (Reader in Economic History at the London School of Economics)
THE DRAMATIC INTERLUDE last Thursday brought the history of Trade-unionism up to the Sheffield Riots in 1867, which were to culminate in the legislation of 1871 and 1875 defining and securing the legal basis of trade-unionism.
This evening Mr. H. L. Beales is to carry on this history with a general survey over the years from 1867 up to 1913, the year before the war. The growth under review in these fifty years lifted trade-unionism into one of the most powerful organisations in the land, but the fight to achieve that position had to be waged relentlessly, stern opposition to be overcome, set-backs to be ignored.
Gradually trade-unionism gathered more and more groups of industrial workers. Joseph Arch brought in the agricultural labourers ; the extension of the franchise in 1867 gave town labourers the vote, and changed the history of England.
So, gradually but incontestably, the movement gained power. The Dockers' Strike in 1889 brought in the unskilled workers. The Trades Union Congress was founded, a general staff acquired; long struggles over recognition and function ensued, but the Trades. Disputes Act (1906) and the Osborn Judgment (1913) gave trade-unionism a clearly defined status which the pioneers of the movement could never have imagined in their wildest dreams.

HENRI TEMIANKA (violin) ANDRES SEGOVIA (guitar)
TEMIANKA, though of Polish parentage, was horn in Scotland. He made his debut in New York in 192S, and has toured extensively since. He has broadcast to British listeners on more than one occasion.
BEFORE Segovia gave his first recital in a London concert hall some years ago, few realised how dignified and beautiful an instrument the guitar can be in the hands of an expert player who is also an artist. That first recital was a revelation. Segovia has such a command over his instrument, his execution is so fertile in range and colour and his artistry so imaginative that his popularity is not difficult to understand.
