Jean Hur é was born in 1877, began his career as a concert pianist, and later founded the Paris Ecole Normale de Musique. Among Hure's chamber music there are three sonatas for 'cello and piano. The first, in F sharp minor, is cast in four linked movements, which are preceded by a prelude and followed by postlude.
' Middle Europe'
10—' Warsaw and the Plains of the Vistula'
Warsaw, the capital of Poland, stands on a bank of the river Vistula. It is an interesting city with its Jewish ghetto, modern public buildings and droshkies. Further afield, on the plains of the Vistula, scenic interest wanes-the plains are monotonous, and the sandy soil is extremely poor. To make matters worse, sometimes the Vistula floods its banks with disastrous results to the crops. The life of the peasants is naturally hard. Godfrey Lias will tell listeners how their food consists mainly of buckwheat porridee, sour milk, black bread, and potatoes. Yet, like most people who have to eke an existence out of poor land, they are not unhappy-their polkas and mazurkas, for instances, are dances as gay as any to be found in Europe.

John Svendsen (1840-1911), son of a military bandmaster, was bom at Christiana. At the age of fifteen he played the flute in his father's band and later the clarinet. Then he took up the violin and eight years later went to seek his fortune in Germany, where he secured the interest of a Dr. Leche, who obtained him a small annual grant from the privy purse of Charles XV. This enabled him to study at the Leipzig Conservatorium under Ferdinand David and Richter. He appears to have divided his life between Christiana, Paris, and New York. For five years (1872-7) Svendsen shared with Grieg the conducting of the Union Concerts at Christiana. ,

C. H. MIDDLETON
Nothing is more important at this season of the year than those three essentials to growing things-digging, manuring, and liming. Unless the soil is dug-and dug deeply-fresh air and warmth cannot penetrate, and stagnant water cannot get away. If we keep growing things on the same soil, we must give back what we take away-we must supply humus by manuring. And lastly, we must lime in order to convert the manure into plant food.
Tonight Mr. C. H. Middleton is to come along to the microphone to discuss the whole question. And listeners will find it helpful to read one or both of his text books. They will find the subject of this talk dealt with on page 236 of ' Mr. Middleton Talks about Gardening' and on page 148 of 'Outlines of a Small Garden '.

A Programme for Young People of all
A Comedy in Three Acts by EDEN PHILLPOTTS
Native dialect is easy for a stranger to imitate roughly, almost impossible to imitate well. This evening, however, listeners-even sensitive West Country listeners-should have no complaints to make about incongruities of accent. An all-Devonshire cast has been chosen.
Eden Phillpotts 's play is of the same type as The Farmer's Wife and Yellow Sands. Billy Blee , for instance, is a farm-hand who is as typical and delightful a character as Churdles Ash.
This play was broadcast in the Regional programme last night

Leipzig, and Vienna, and before he was thirty he was appointed professor of medicine at McGill University. Later, he was given posts at the Johns Hopkins University and the University of Pennsylvania. In 1905 he came to Oxford as Regius Professor of Medicine, and was made curator of the Bodleian Library.
