There are few racing journalists more respected than Mr. Sidney Galtrey , for more than twenty years ' Hotspur ' of The Daily Telegraph. In a foreword to his interesting book ' Memoirs of a Racing Journalist', Lord Derby wrote: * Nobody is brought more into touch with all those who make up the great game of racing than a racing journalist. He is in close touch with owners, trainers, jockeys, and racecourse officials and nobody sees more from behind the scenes than he does'.
And in his talk this evening Mr.
Galtrey is to deal with those things less known to the general public than the actual racecourse in all its panoply of noise and colour and excitement whilst a meeting is on. The horse that is favourite today was perhaps a delicate foal three years ago; or possibly the cup won in a matter of two or three minutes might have gone to another stable but for preparations attended with anxiety for months beforehand. Stable secrets, trials and coups, stories of romantic purchases, amusing incidents, will all figure in this talk that should make good listening.

Leoncavallo, the composer who is known to English. audiences by his Pagliacci and by very little else, wrote an opera called La Bohème, the libretto of which was taken from the same novel, by Henri Murger , as was Puccini's. The two operas, moreover, were being composed at the same time and the first productions in Italy were made within a few months of one another.
Leoncavallo's libretto was made by himself, and was at one time actually offered by him to Puccini who was looking for an operatic text to set. Puccini then refused it, so that when, a year or two later, Leoncavallo learned that he had nearly completed an opera to a similar libretto, written by somebody else, he was naturally furious-particularly as his own opera on precisely the same subject was about to be produced.
There was at first the inevitable rivalry between the two competing operas, but from the very beginning there was no doubt about the superiority of Puccini's.
