This evening the Minister who was responsible, until recently, for the administration of the Ancient Monuments Acts is to show how the aim of his former department, the Office of Works, is not only to preserve our national monuments but to make them better known to the visiting public. In the twenty-three years the Office of Works has been in existence it has got together a highly trained staff who carry out work of repair as inconspicuously as possible. They are often called on to put right serious troubles. When they took over Furness Abbey, for instance, the walls of the north transept, sixty feet high, were in danger of collapse.
Mr. Ormsby-Gore will suggest some of the beautiful abbeys, castles, and so forth, in various part of Great Britain, that are well worth a visit on one's holiday. At most of these ' still living witnesses of our history ', guide-books and photographs are to be obtained.' Mr. Ormsby-Gore is now writing a series of short illustrated regional guides covering all the monuments in the custody of the Office of Works.

Katharine Goodson , who now enjoys an international reputation as a pianist, played both the violin and piano as a child, and at the age of twelve made her debut in public as a pianist. She studied at the Royal Academy of Music and later with Leschetizky in Vienna. For many years Miss Goodson has appeared as a soloist at the Proms and in her interpretation of the concertos of Brahms and Beethoven she has few equals among women pianists.

The ' Froissart ' Overture was the work with which Elgar made his first appearance at one of the great English Festivals-at Worcester, in 1890. It thus did a good deal to spread his fame, and was probably the first of his larger works to arouse anything at all like the interest which was even then his due. At the head of the score there is a quotation from Keats : ' ... when Chivalry lifted up her lance on high ' ; and Ernest Newman tells us that the Overture took shape in its composer's mind from that passage in Sir Walter Scott 's ' Old Mortality ', where Claverhouse speaks to Morton of his enthusiasm for the Froissart ' Chronicles.' The music is indeed eloquent of Elgar's idealized view of the old-world chivalry which Froissart presents to us with so much romance.
