Colin Campbell's suite 'Princess Gioia' is selected from a children's ballet bearing the same title. The ballet was first produced at the Court Theatre in 1918, and in the following year several excerpts were given by Madame La Foy at the Royal Academy of Music - other excerpts were also given at the Winter Gardens, Bournemouth. In 1924 the 'Princess Gioia' Suite was performed at Buckingham Palace by the string band of the Royal Regiment of Artillery, to whose musical director, Major E.C. Stretton, M.V.O., R.A., the Suite is dedicated. The orchestral suite has been a popular item in the repertory of light music for many years, and is scored for the unusual combination of strings, single wood-wind, one horn, two trumpets, one trombone, percussion, harp and celeste. The difficult horn part was played in the original production by Aubrey Brain, who remarked to the composer, who was conducting, that he 'should have called it a horn concerto.'
The Selection of Scottish Tunes is what the composer humorously describes as a 'Scotch Hotch-potch' and incorporates the following well-known tunes: 'Caller Herrin'', 'Charlie is my darlin'', 'Loch Lomond', 'Duncan Gray', 'John Anderson my Jo', 'A Hundred Pipers', 'Flora Mac-Donald's Farewell', 'Fhir a Bhata', 'Ho ro, my nut-brown Maiden', 'Scots wha hae', 'There's nae luck aboot the hoose'.

The Rev. Fr. J. P. ARENDZEN, D.D .
On April 19 the Rev. J. Maillard opened this series of three talks on Spiritual Healing; and today Father Arendzen, a member of the Catholic Missionary Society since 1902 and author of a number of publications, is to emphasise the difference between ' Faith Healing ', which is due largely to the vivid anticipation of a cure, and miraculous healing by Divine Power.
On May 17 a ' Medical Psycho!ogist' will wind up the series.

Some Readings and Recollections
Although Berthe Grossbard was once the announcer at Rome and Naples, she spent her childhood in Vienna. And this evening she will tell listeners all about this city as it was before the war, the Vienna of the Hapsburgs. Her talk will be illustrated by extracts from memoirs and books dealing mainly with the Austrian Royal Family.
The second talk in this series is to be given by one of the most interesting and knowledgeable students of ' Living in the Past'. Arthur Bryant is not only the author of a number of books on Charles II, Pepys, and their times, but he is a distinguished lecturer in history and has been responsible for pageants up and down the country, dealing with old English times.
Arthur Bryant made his name as a broadcaster for his brilliant series of talks on the National Character' in 1933. Today he is to persuade listeners to imagine themselves taking a journey to London from a little town somewhere in the North Midlands 250 years ago, and they will realise what an extraordinary adventure travelling was then.

An appeal on behalf of ST. DAVID'S HOME for Totally Disabled Soldiers and Sailors, by Admiral MARK KERR. C.B., M.V.O .
St. David's Home was founded in 1918 with the object of providing a permanent home where totally disabled soldiers, sailors, and airmen could find peace and comfort for the remainder of their lives.
There are still throughout the country countless ex-Servicemen suffering from the effects of the war, and it is for these men that St. David's provides a home.
Owing to the helpless condition of most of the patients, a very large staff is necessary and the running expenses are consequently heavy. The home has no endowment fund, and because many of the patients can pay little or nothing towards their maintenance, the upkeep of the home has to depend largely on money paid by public bodies and the generosity of friends.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to [address removed]
Admiral Mark Kerr.

from the Grand Hotel, Eastbourne ORCHESTRA
Few broadcasts are more generally popular than those relayed on Sunday evenings from the Grand Hotel, Eastbourne. Not the chief reason, but a very good one, is that the acoustical properties of the room in which the orchestra plays are almost ideal. The programmes, too, are well chosen; they reflect wide experience and understanding of good popular taste. In the spring of 1934, Leslie Jeffries went to Eastbourne with a two years' contract and gave his first broadcast as leader and violin soloist of the Grand Hotel Orchestra. There is no better proof of his success than the fact that he has been offered' and has accepted a renewal of his contract for a further two years.
