The Augustan Age in Rome:
The Odes of Horace
Read in the original Latin and various translations by RONALD WATKINS
by HARRIET COHEN
HARRIET COHEN is not the type of artist who, having the opportunity of studying a new school at first hand and at its source, neglects to do so. She plays modern Spanish music from intimate acquaintance with those who write it and consequent knowledge of their aims and idiom. Miss Cohen has, in fact, just returned from Madrid, having played there Walton's Sinfonia Concertante with the Madrid Symphony Orchestra, conducted by that staunch friend of England, Senor Arbos. A Spanish critic, on that occasion, said that Spain owed her a double debt. for not only does she introduce a great deal of Spanish music everywhere she goes, but on her visits to Spain she introduces British music to Spanish audiences.

The Week's Good Cause
An appeal on behalf of THE PORTSMOUTH HOSTEL FOR Boys, by Admiral E. GRACE , C.B.
THE OBJECT of this appeal is the particular interest of the Bishop of Portsmouth, who writes as follows:
' Some four years ago the challenge came to the Diocese of Portsmouth to provide for boys without homes, and for those for whom public authorities desired to find a " home away from home ", a hostel where they could live under conditions which were home-like, comfortable, and kindly. This challenge was taken up under great financial exigencies and a start made in a house in Kingston Crescent, Portsmouth, which by extensions and adaptations has been rendered suitable.
' Under the devoted chairmanship of Admiral Edgar Grace , C.B., many difficulties, financial and otherwise, have been overcome, and the hostel is now well established. It has in it at this moment twenty-two boys, and its influence is steadily increasing, some sixty boys benefiting yearly. The contributions of those in work, as well as grants from the authorities on behalf of certain others, are of very great financial importance, but in addition £ i a day has to be raised continuously by subscriptions from kind friends in the district to balance the annual accounts. Some £600 is still required to free the hostel from debt, £ 400 to equip the workshop and provide other activities, and a further £500 to put future expenditure on a sure and business-like footing.
' The inspiration which has led
Admiral Grace to devote himself to this valuable and most desirable enterprise has been largely derived from the warm interest his father, " W. G. ", took in young fellows and in their enthusiasm for the bright energies of life. There will be many whose memories go back to that masterful figure with its unerring efficiency, and who, for the sake of unforgotten enchantment in watching " W. G. " hit up a great score, or in seeing him pull some almost lost match " out of the fire", will delight in aiding his son's determined effort to make the only boys' hostel of its kind south of the Thames a great success and a lasting benefit to those boys who are sent to it from all parts of our country.-Neville Portsmouth.
