'Life and Work'—
' Iron from the Shores of Lake Superior' C. D. FORDE , Ph.D., F.R.G.S. (Professor of Geography and Anthropology in the University of Wales)
On Tuesday Professor C. D. Forde was talking to you about the Indian herds-men of the Colorado plateaux. Today he is to talk to you about iron from the southern shores of Lake Superior, a tongue of typically East - Canadian country in Wisconsin, United States. He will tell you of metals in the roots of ancient mountains ; of bare rock, sandy soil, and thousands of lakes, the legacy of the glaciers. He will tell you how ore is worked there today ; of hills of ore scooped away with steam shovels ; of giant, man-made craters. He will describe the life of the mining towns and the ore ports on Lake Superior, and the docks at Duluth, a small city doiny big business in iron, wheat, and coal.

Alrea'dy the work of summer threatens to get out of hand with its staking and tying of plants that grow in a night, and trimming of edges that. grow in an hour. Next year's biennials depend on our sowing in the next week or two. There are lawns to be mown, there's a plague on our roses. There are seedling vegetables to be thinned, weeds to be hoed or pulled by hand, young things to be transplanted, others to be watered. There are plants to be taken from the greenhouse and hardened in the open for winter blooming. There are strawberries to gather and birds to be scared from the fruit.
This evening, in another of his popular talks on seasonal topics, C. H. Middleton is to give listeners a few hints on some of the things to do, and the way to do them. And he will answer many of the questions that have puzzled them in the last few weeks.

Schubert's Alfonso and Estrella had no better luck than most of his operas. Written in 1822 when he was twenty-five, it had to wait till twenty-six years after his death for its first performance. The overture is full of typical Schubertian grace.
' The Pavane for a dead Infanta ' was written first as a pianoforte piece and later scored-a common practice with Ravel. The Pavane is a very old dance, probably derived from Spain. Rabelais, writing ip the sixteenth century, speaks of it as one of the 180 dances performed at the Court of the Queen of Lanternois. Essentially a stately dance associated' with pomp and ceremonial occasions, it would consequently have been most appropriate as music for so solemn an occasion as the funeral rites of a Spanish Princess.
The first ' Wand of Youth' Suite (the second was written very much later) is composed of music that Elgar wrote in 1869 for a children's play, when he was only twelve years old, and revised and scored for orchestra in his maturity. It was first played at a Queen's Hall Symphony Concert conducted by Sir Henry Wood in December, 1907, and has ever since been one of the most popular of Elgar's lighter suites.

This evening listeners are to hear what the visitor from Mars thinks of sports on our islands. He see's junketings in our gaiety on Derby Day, and our Cup-Tie carnival reminds him of rejoicings at some Eastern feast.
He found us otherwise sad ; our food simple, but hot good. One of his most interesting observations is his surprise as a Martian at our feeding in public. To him it is obscene. Maybe, he heard some strange islander eating his soup. Patrick Balfour is author of that clever satire ' Social Racket '.
