This evening they are to feature the ' Five o'clock ' fox-trot by Ravel, from his opera L'Enfant et les Sortilèges (The Child and the Enchantments). It represents a dance by the teapot and the cups and saucers, and is to be given for the first time by a rhythm band.

At the request of a reader, we give both the Latin and the English versions of the words of the opening and closing signature tune of the Wireless Male Voice Chorus. As it is sung in Latin and a number of other listeners may like to know the words and their meaning, we give both versions below :
Gaudeamus igitur juvenes dum sumus ;
Post jucundam juventutem-Post molestam senectutem-Nos habebit humus.
Let us then rejoice while we are young;
After joyous youth-After grievous age-
The earth shall claim us.
The 'Gaudeamus Igitur' is the oldest known students' song in existence, and that is why it is used. The harmonisation of the melody has been transcribed by Leslie Woodgate from Brahms's Academic Festival Overture.
