Colin Macleod Campbell, who is a member of a distinguished family of soldiers and sailors, was born in London in 1890. He studied at the Royal Academy of Music under
Frederick Corder, and later took his Mus Bac. at Oxford. In 1921 Campbell won great success with his one-act opera, Thais and Talmaae, which was produced by the Carl Rosa Company in London and the Provinces. The Fantasy Suite, which was originally written as a children's Christmas ballet, is characteristic of Campbell's delicate fancy and charming melodic invention

'From School to Club Soccer'
W. S. DAILEY
Most boys have some regrets on leaving school. Apart from the difficult problem of earning a living, there is the fact that the young man who was a keen footballer at school finds himself with no outdoor recreation on Saturday afternoons. In his talk W. S. Dailey, who is a London schoolmaster who has played professional and amateur football in Scotland and England, suggests a remedy : club soccer.

THE B B C VARIETY ORCHESTRA
Conducted by ERNEST LONGSTAFFE
Here is a bumber Variety bill headed by Renee Houston , of the famous Houston Sisters, who finished their successful pantomime engagement as the Babes in The Bqbes in the Wood at the Prince of Wales Theatre, Birmingham, last Saturday. Renee is forming a new Variety act and her appearance in it will be the first she has ever made in Variety without Billie, though, of course, she played without her in Love Laughs at the Hippodrome last year.
Other old favourites to be heard tonight are Osborne and Perryer, the irrepressible Tessie O'Shea , and Mr. Flotsam and Mr. Jetsam with their very long record on the air.
Tollefsen, a young Norwegian of twenty-two, became a star in one night when he broadcast last February with his piano accordeon. And there are two artists who are to make their radio debut. Larry Teal , a Yorkshire comedian with very funny patter, and Beryl Chappell , a Somerset girl who is believed to have a great future on the air.

Dvorak's opera The Roguish Peasant was composed in 1877 and was well received on its first performance in January the following year. In style the opera followed the tradition set by Smetana's The Bartered Bride, which deals with the life of the country folk, and is full of national colour both as regards its stage setting and its musical texture. Unfortunately, the libretto by the poet Vesely is not very good, but the Overture is characteristic of Dvorak's brilliant and tuneful style.
In a RADIO TIMES article on Smetana's cycle of six symphonic poems, entitled ' My Country ', Edwin Evans described the third, ' Sarka ', as follows : ' To the north of Prague, between Podhaba and Liboe, is a valley which is named after Sarka, the heroic leader of the mythical Amazons of Bohemia. Betrayed by a lover, Sarka is consumed with rage against all men. To the strains of a march Ctirad, the hero, approaches at the head of his warriors. He sees a beautiful woman bound to a tree. He falls in love with her and his followers camp on the spot. Mead and wine are served and presently the men fall into a drunken sleep. Then Sarka sounds her horn as a signal to her Amazons who wait in ambush. They massacre the sleepers until the grass is soaked with blood instead of dew, and Ctirad himself falls victim to Sarka's sword '.
