There is not a branch of instrumental music of which Arnold Bax has not shown himself to be a master. His six symphonies and four piano sonatas are good instances of this fact. The Piano Sonata No. 4 was written in 1933. Dedicated to Charles Lynch , it was first performed by Harriet Cohen in New York. Like most of Bax's later work, this sonata, though rich in content, is compact in design and terse in utterance.

Sir CHARLES BELL , K.C.I.E., C.M.G.
It is granted to few to enjoy the personal friendship of a god. Sir Charles Bell is one of the few. A distinguished Indian Civil Servant, Political Officer for Tibet, Bhutan and Sikkim for many years, he first met the late Dalai Lama of Tibet at Darjeeling in 1910 and was in close contact with him during his two years' exile. Then in 1920 Sir Charles conducted a diplomatic mission to Lhasa, staving there for eleven months, and when he left, the living representative of Buddha paid him a unique compliment—' We two are men of like mind '.
This talk is of special interest as the new Dalai Lama was found only a fortnight ago.

In 1006 William Yeates Hurlstone died at the age of thirty. He had already proved himself a highly gifted composer and one of the most promising of the younger British school. Hurlstone's first work was a set of ' live Valses ' for piano, which were published when he was only nine years of age. At eighteen he won a scholarship at the Royal College of Music and studied composition under Stanford tor several years. Among Hurlstone's handful of chamber music, for which he possessed a distinctive flair, is the early D minor 'Cello Sonata, which is a graceful piece of writing and a charming piece of music.

A talk on the Facilities for Continued Education, by The Rt. Hon. OLIVER STANLEY , M.C., M.P., President of the Board of Education
Every autumn many hundreds 'of thousands of men, women, boys, and girls, whose only common characteristic is that they have left school, join evening classes. Some of them do it because it helps them in their jobs, others for sheer pleasure. Some like learning about history, literature, foreign languages, others seek skill at carpentry, metal-work, or poster-design. Others again seek health with physical exercises. Local Education Authorities, the Workers' Educational Association, extra-mural departments of universities, settlements of all kinds, and many other agencies try to meet almost any reasonable demand throughout the whole field of cultural, recreational, and vocational education.
The Rt. Hon. Oliver Stanley , President of the Board of Education, will tell listeners about some of these activities, and how they may find out more for themselves.
