Charpentier's ' Louise'
LESLIE H. HEWARD and VICTOR HELY-HUTCHINSON
A Few Reminiscences by ALBERT WHELAN
Accompanied at the pianj by JEAN MELVILLE
Once again listeners are to hear Albert Whelan whistle his signature tune which is becoming as well known as the nonchalance with which he draws off his gloves on the music-halls. He has been broadcasting for nearly ten years and has been head-lined in music-halls all over the world. His first professional appearance was in a tent on the Australian gold-fields. Since then he has played in almost everything except Shakespeare. He has appeared in several films and has another claim to fame as one of the Alexanders in the popular Alexander and Mose act.

Act II of Louise opens with a fine piece of tone painting in the form of a Prelude which is entitled ' Paris Awakes '. The curtain rises on a street scene in Montmartre, and we see the people in the street busily going about their work, such as the milk-woman, the rag-picker, the paper girl, etc. Julien appears with some of his friends and they plan to seize Louise on the way to her work. The dressmaking girls, among whom are Louise and her mother, begin to arrive. Louise goes into the house and when her mother has gone Julien rushes in and reappears with Louise. He tries to persuade her to fly with him, but she refuses.
After a short and brilliant orchestral interlude, the scene changes to the dressmakers' workroom, where we see
Louise surrounded by her friends. They make fun at her being in love, and she answers by singing of the spirit of Paris. From the street is heard a serenade sung by Julien, which has its desired effect on Louise, who finally tells her friends to inform her employer that she has been taken ill and has had to go home. She leaves her friends and goes off with Julien.

' Shrewsbury to
Bridgnorth G. M. BOUMPHREY
Last week G. M. Boumphrey described the first stage of the trip he is making in a folding canoe down Severn and Thames with his friend George. Starting from Newtown, they reached Shrewsbury in spite of adventures, for there was very little water—often no more than two inches and their canoe draws four ! Then when they came to a really deep, swift place the good ship capsized, and George swam ashore with his watch in his mouth.
This week G. M. Boumphrey will describe the trip from Shrewsbury to Bridgnorth and those who remember his series of broadcast talks on the Roman roads will be interested to know that he is to visit the old Roman city of Uniconium.
