Those who would keep bees, whether for the love of the thing or for the purpose of putting over the garden gate that seductive sign ' Honey for Sale ', should listen to this useful talk by the Hon. Secretary of the King's Lynn Bee-Keepers ' Association.
R. Gamble is to take the would-be bee-keeper, or the one who has already tried his luck with no great degree of success, through all the stages that begin with buying his stock or swarm and end with collecting the ambrosia] honey. It seems that anyone can keep bees and they may be kept anywhere ; and the golden secret is to enlist the help of the secretary of the local bee-keeping association, and then to begin small and go slowly.
Next week the Chairman of the Norfolk Bee-Keepers' Association is to give a further talk on bee-keeping.

Conducted by PETER MONTGOMERY
Frederick Smetana was, like all natives of Bohemia, an intense patriot and lover of the natural beauties of his country. He wrote a series of six symphonic poems in praise of Bohemia, entitled ' My Country '. The one now to be performed is the first, and its title refers to the River Vltava (or Moldau), Bohemia's most important waterway. The music sets out to describe the course of the river from its rise in a forest spring, through the meadows, past the towns, to the sea. It is obviously the simplest kind of programme music, made up of folk-tunes and lilting melodies, but all the more fascinating for its freedom from complications.

Some critics have held that chamber music was not Delius's real medium of expression. It is true that he moved uncomfortably within the limits of the classical forms that have become more or less de rigueur in chamber music, but he wrote few things more characteristic than this Second Quartet, composed in 1916. The wistful slow movement, ' Late Swallows ', is saturated with Delius's individual poetry.

' The Country House'
This evening Ralph Dutton is to describe life in a country gentleman's house 250 years ago. A house set near the village, a formal garden, a mysterious grotto in a formal grove of trees ; and in the house itself imposing rooms, Gobelin tapestry and marquetry furniture (both just coming in), magnificent beds, sumptuous meals. Yet one learns that the retinue of male servants who paraded by day in resplendent liveries were herded together in a cellar at night. Bathrooms were very rare, and slops were emptied out of the window.
SARAH FISCHER (soprano)
ZOLTAN SZEKELY (violin)
Zoltan Szdkely is not only a brilliant violin virtuoso, but also a notable composer. He studied the violin with Hubay, and composition with Kodaly. A violin sonata of his was chosen for performance at the International Music Festival in Venice.
Sarah Fischer comes from Montreal, where she received her early musical training. She won a scholarship at the Royal College of Music which entitled her to three years study there. On completing her studies, Miss Fischer joined the newly formed British National Opera Company and made her début at Bradford as Eva in The Mastersingers. Soon afterwards she appeared at Covent Garden as Pamina in The Magic Flute. In 1926 Miss Fischer sang in Brussels and at the Paris Opéra Comique, and in the following year at the Opera in Monte Carlo.

An appeal on behalf of TOWNSEND NEEDLEWORK
GIRLS' FRIENDLY SOCIETY by Dame JANET CAMPBELL , D.B.E.
The society for which the appeal is to be made tonight was known until 1933 as the Central Needlework Depot, and was started thirty-seven years ago to train and give employment to those members of the Girls' Friendly Society who are either blind or chronic invalids.
Such work as they can do serves a double purpose by giving them both distraction and an interest in life. The work done, especially in the circumstances, is wonderful, as can be seen. by the lingerie and baby linen, fancy work and knitting on show at Townsend House, Greycoat Place, Westminster. But it is obvious that this society cannot be self-supporting, and financial help is imperative if the good work is to go on. Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to [address removed]
