From page 63 of ' When Two or Three '
This morning our imaginary housewife is to start on her second week's catering for herself, her husband, and her three children, on the sum of twenty-one shillings which, as a basic figure, she has at her disposal. And Miss Monica Dixon will suggest how best she can expend this sum ; will draw up the shopping list for her and give her seme hints on shopping. Thus, next week will be free to discuss the arranging and cooking of the menu.

Les Francs Juges (the German Secret Tribunal of the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries) was to have been an opera, but ' All that the human heart can contain of rage and tenderness is in this overture,' as the composer confessed. He has furnished a brief programme. An accused man is led blindfold before the dread judges. The dreadful accusations which they hurl at him in chorus, his own appeals for mercy, breaking in on these, interrupted ever and anon by a thunderous ' No ' are all to be heard in the music, and at last the accused man's final breaking down, resigned to his awful doom.
