Relayed from the Council Chamber of the Football Association
Today for the first time listeners are to hear an outside broadcast of an event that is to affect the fortunes of sixty-four football clubs in their competition for the F.A. Cup, which each of them (to say nothing of its supporters) is so anxious to win.
The Draw for the Third Round is to take place this afternoon in the Council Chamber of the Football Association, and listeners all over the country are to hear something of the eventful proceedings. The draw will take place in the presence of the President and Chairman, Sir Charles Clegg , the Vice-President and Vice-Chairman, Mr. W. Pickford , and the Secretary, Mr. S. F. Rous. There are seventy-seven members of the Council, and it is expected that there will be a full attendance.
For two minutes previous to the proceedings, John Snagge is to describe the scene and explain what will take place.

Rachmaninov's Sonata for 'cello and piano belongs to that group of fine works, such as the Symphony No. 2 in E minor and the Piano Concerto No. 2 in C minor, written at the turn of the present century, all of which show a curious thematic relationship, particularlv in the case of the C minor Piano Concerto and the 'Cello Sonata.
The 'Cello Sonata is said to be ope of the most popular of Rachmaninov's compositions with his compatriots. It is beautifully written for both instruments, and the music is characteristically lyrical in style and sombre in mood.

The original version of this play with Rosalinde Fuller instead of Carol Goodner playing the part of Anna Foldvary was broadcast in 1933 ; and listeners who heard that performance no doubt will listen again. Although Mark Lubbock 's musto will be much the same as before, the book has been re-written by C. Denis Freeman the author, it will be remembered, of th? original version. -
The sub-title ' A Romantic. Drama with Music ' fits the theme perfectly. There is romance in plenty from the time the young Englishman meets the charming Hungarian girl in a doorway ; there is drama too-the scenes of the Hungarian Terror of 1919 are vividly portrayed, and a sinister train that spreads death wherever it goes is only one of the thrills. The music, mainly Hungarian in character, makes an effective setting to a really 'meaty ' plot.
'The Castle on the Hill' will be repeated in the Regional programme tomorrow at 8.30

Ludwig Thuille (1861-1907), the Tyrolese composer, had a hard struggle against poverty during his youth, but he eventually secured a patron who made it possible for him to enter in 1881 the Munich School of Music, where, among others, he studied under Rheinberger. One of his fellow students was Richard Strauss.
A scholarship to Frankfurt brought him into contact with Alexander Ritter , who did much to further Thuille's career. In 1883 Thuille was appointed a professor at the Munich School of Music.
As a composer Thuille turned his attention chiefly to opera, but he wrote two or three chamber works of importance. The Sextet for piano and wind was written in 1887 and first performed at the National German Music Union, Wiesbaden, in 1889. Though designed on classical lines, the music is romantic in conception. It is full of charm and delicate colouring, particularly the Gavotte which is an exquisite little movement.
