' St. Paul appeals to Rome'
5: Norman Macleod, by the Rev. Archibald Fleming, D.D.
The fifth figure in this series is to be discussed this afternoon by the Rev. Archibald Fleming, Minister of St. Columba's (Church of Scotland), Pont Street, Londonâ€”a speaker whose voice has been familiar to listeners since the earlier days of broadcasting.
The Norman Macleod he is to speak about was a son of a Norman Macleod and grandson of another, both Scottish divines. He was bom at Campbeltown, Argyllshire, where his father was parish minister in 1812, and twelve years later went to school at Morven where his grandfather was minister.
He went to Glasgow College and then to Edinburgh where he studied divinity under Chalmers and Welsh. A three years' tutorship was obtained for him by Chalmers, and he returned I to Glasgow College again. 1838 saw him parish minister of Loudoun, Ayrshire, where he crowded the church with his preaching.
But it was as minister of the Barony parish, Glasgow, that his greatest work was done. He established the first congregational penny savings bank, opened refreshment rooms for working men, and generally laboured for the poor. He was soon acclaimed one of the most eloquent preachers in Scotland, and was praised by Queen Victoria in Leaves from the Journal of our Life in the Highlands. In 1860 Good Words was established in London with Macleod as editor and won instant success. Six years later he visited Egypt and Palestine, and India in the following year. He died in Glasgow in 1872.

Since the days of Lady Halle, one of the first and most famous of women violinists, many of her sex have followed her example, and the best of them can hold their own with the first soloists of the day irrespective of their gender. Renée Chemet is one of the most justly popular violinists of the present time, and has even been called the ' female Kreisler She has a full and very beautiful tone, her readings are impeccable, and with the whole range of the repertory at her fingers' end her playing is as distinguished in the classics as in such programmes as she is giving this afternoon She has been a regular visitor to England for a number of years, and has broadcast on many occasions.

Brahms composed twenty-four chamber works, ranging from sonatas for clarinet and piano to string sextets, all of which are the finished products of his genius. Professor Tovey suggests that these works only represent a quarter of what Brahms composed, since the composer destroyed innumerable works that he did not consider worthy of publication .
The second of Brahms's three piano trios, in C major, was written in 1882, and therefore represents the terse, concentrated, and dramatic Brahms of his last period. The first three of the four movements are designed on a big almost epic scale, while the finale is concise in form and pointed in expressive qualities. Writing of the first movement, Professor Tovey says that ' the style is grandly energetic with deep shadows of mystery, the mystery of nature rather than romance '.

An Appeal on behalf of The Aylesbury After-Care Association by Lilian C. Barker, C.B.E., Director of the Association.
The work of the Aylesbury After-Care Association is to arrange for the future career and well-being of all Borstal girls and women convicts. Their welfare is the Association's one aim, and therefore if any of them falls sick before she has worked a sufficient time to obtain benefit, or loses her work, or if any other ill befalls, she knows that they are at hand all the time to assist financially and to give whatever help is necessary. The relationship is a very personal one, and is cemented by the friend or supervisor attached to every one of them, who not only reports to the Association as to the kind and extent of help needed, but at the same time is a real friend to her own protegee. All the help given costs money, and it is for this urgent present need the Association pleads to fill what is now an empty purse.
