' The Monsoon Lands : China and Japan-Japan 4, The North
A. B. LOWNDES, B.Com.
In his final talk on Japan today Mr. Lowndes is to take listeners north and show them the changing scenery. Hokkaido in the snow ; ice roads ; the thaw, and where the snow goes to ; spring cleaning; open fields; cattle and sheep, peas and beans ; houses, heating, and clothing-all these will come into his talk.
And listeners will hear about dog-teams, lumber work, fisheries ; about Karafuto and its salmon, herring, and crab. They will be interested to hear, too, something of the lives of children of their own age who live in North Japan. In the picture on this page they will see a little Karafuto boy giving a lesson to his fellow pupils.

' La Reine'
Haydn's Symphony ' La Reine ' owes its name to Queen Marie Antoinette , who, it is said, was very fond of it. It is the fourth of the Paris Symphonies. It is scored for quite a small orchestra : strings and two flutes, oboes, bassoons, and horns. The second movement is notable for a set of variations on the theme of a French song, ' La gentille et jeune Lisette '.
Russian and Ludmilla Glinka was the father of modem Russian music, and Russian and Lud milla , his second opera, was one of the first big works of a really national character which the composer produced. The tale is founded on an early poetical romance by Pushkin. It is a blend of fairy lore and old Russian legend. Ludmilla, the daughter of a Grand Duke, has three suitors, of whom she prefers the Knight Russian. She is carried off by magic powers, and the whole story is taken up with Russian's heroic conflict with these and his overcoming of one dread magic spell after another to win his bride in the end.
