Leader, Norris Stanley

Peter Warlock had all the real antiquarian's delight in finding such buried treasures as the quaint old book on which this Suite is founded. It is a very early work on dancing by a sixteenth-century priest who took the name of Arbeau-so old that the very names of most of the dances have vanished from modern ken. But the six movements in the Suite, set forth with all the interest of modem orchestration, can yet recall the simple character and grace of that far-off day.

' Young China'
G. B. BARBOUR , Ph.D.
Here is an opportunity for sixth forms to learn the difficulties of boys and girls of their own age in China, where the old and the new generations are in conflict-the youth of China eagerly absorbing the freshness of Western ideas, their elders clinging stubbornly to tradition.
Dr. Barbour, who is Honorary
Lecturer in Geography at University College, London, and was for a long time a university professor in Peiping, spent twelve years in China and travelled over 30,000 miles by camel; aeroplane, sedan-chair, ox-cart, and wheelbarrow, as well as in more normal ways, making expeditions into Mongolia and the interior of China.
He gave several talks on the geography of China to schools last term and today he will not only deal with a problem that is a problem of the Far East as a whole as well as of China, but endeavour to tell listeners how it is likely to solve itself in the future.

C. H. MIDDLETON
A good, and at the same time inexpensive garden library is indispensable to all gardeners, for, however experienced they may be, they have need to refer to this matter and that matter throughout the year. This evening Mr. C. H. Middleton is to bring another popular broadcaster to the microphone in Mr. T. Hay , Superintendent of the Royal Parks, and they will discuss, among other things, the important question of the ideal books for a gardener.

Illustrated by gramophone records of various dialects current throughout the United Kingdom GEOFFREY WHITWORTH
In these days when countrymen and women dresstike their town cousins and are losing with each succeeding generation the speech of their ancestry, dialect is rapidly becoming a thing of the past. You may go to Scotland and not know you have left England, except that people speak rather better English than you have heard on the way north.
But dialect still exists, and has been preserved by the British Drama League by means of records against the day when it dies out. This evening listeners are to hear the same story told respectively by natives of Devonshire, Lancashire, the Scottish Border, and Aberdeen. Then the Yorkshire East Riding is to have its turn in a record called ' Yorkshire Sayings ', and dialect of Norfolk, Sussex, and the Irish Free State will also be heard.

An Albeniz Programme
El puerto (The Harbour) Eritana
The twelve pieces that constitute ' Iberia ' show Albeniz at his very best. Few composers of note have been more unequal in their output than this prolific Spaniard, and these scenes from different parts of Spain, written toward's the end of Albeniz's life, when he had come under the influence of Debussy, are very far removed from the multitude of salon pieces that he had turned out in earlier days.
Nevertheless, the influence of Debussy comes second to that of Spanish popular music, particularly that of Andalusia. (Though Albeniz himself was a Catalan.) The conflicting rhythms of castanets, suggestions of guitar harmonies, the arabesque, semi-oriental melodies of Andalusian folk music-these are the basic elements of Albeniz's mature style.
