Already this term Schools have heard about the wheat farms in the Argentine and the Javanese rice farmer, and today they are to hear about the American farmer of the Middle West-about rattle-snakes and prairie-dogs and maize (Indian corn) that grows ten feet high.
They will hear how the maize fields of Ohio on the one side and Nebraska on the other are inseparably linked with the stock-yards in Chicago, for maize feeds the hogs that the gentlemen of Chicago turn into canned pork. Dr. Eric Ashby will give you all first-hand information because he has worked both on a prairie farm in Illinois and in Chicago itself.

The story of Antar as musically illustrated by Rimsky-Korsakov in this symphonic poem, one of his early works, runs briefly as follows:-
Antar, a somewhat Byronic figure, has retired to the desert, hating his fellows and disgusted with the world. He rescues a gazelle from the clutches of a monstrous bird. The gazelle turns out to be the Fairy Queen Gull-Nazar, who, in gratitude, appears to Antar in a dream and promises him life's greatest joys. This part of the story occupies the first movement.
In the second movement Antar, granted the Joy of Vengeance, proceeds to make use of it. The music is brassy and ferocious.
In the third movement Antar is experiencing the Joy of Power. The music is bold and hustling, in the style of a March.
The fourth movement is taken up with the Joy of Love to which Antar surrenders himself in the arms of Gull-Nazar herself. In the end he dies, intoxicated with love, in her embrace.
The tunes employed by the composer in the course of the work are nearly all genuine Arab melodies.
Second General News Bulletin
Though it is not so many years since the Great War, and the feeling of ' never again ' which followed it. the fear of war is by no means a matter of the past. Everywhere it is being discussed, and everyone has his theory of the principal cause. Some find it in the imperfections of political systems ; others in the economic system, the private manufacture of arms, the pressure of expanding population, or simply human nature. In this series some of the leading thinkers on this problem will give their views and as far as possible all points of view will be represented.

Ernest John Moeran , born in 1894, has spent much of his life in Norfolk, and, as an enthusiastic collector of folk-songs, has rescued a large number of East Anglian folk-songs from oblivion. He began to compose while he was still at Uppingham, and first attracted serious notice with a concert of his own works in 1923. Since then he has more than confirmed the impressions his thoroughly English music then made.
