This is the first of five talks by Donald Soper , famous for his Wednesday meetings on Tower Hill. On a May morning nine years ago he got up on the wall and clapped his hands and drew critics of Christianity round him, and he has been doing it ever since. Every Wednesday at one o'clock he is to be seen there, in sunshine or rain, in wind or hail or snow, answering the questions that are flung at him.
In this new series he is to deal with people first and problems second ; to put the case for organised Christianity to those men and women who at present find it impossible to accept it; to state as fairly as he can the point of view of some typical critics whom listeners have all met.
The critic who is concerned about himself and his destiny, and is ' incurably religious ' ; the critic who has no use for organised Christianity and all the ' mumbo-jumbo ' of ritual, though he accepts pageantry in trooping the colour, and even at his own wedding; the critic who says : ' It doesn't matter what you believe, it's the way you live that matters ' ; the critic who complains of a lack of charity in various Christian communities and says it is worse than their doctrinal differences ... each will be dealt with and answered. And in his fifth talk Dr. Soper will reply to listeners' questions.

An attractive example of Sir Donald Tovey 's style as a composer is the Variations on a Theme by Gluck. The theme is a ballet from Gluck's Armide and is stated as it stands in Gluck's score with its pizzicato accompaniment, its viola and 'cello in octaves without double bass, and its occasional holding notes.
The six variations are faithful to the form and phrasing of the theme, but are independent of the surface melody, for which they substitute many different ideas, some of the variations or sections being double, that is to say, representing each repeat, by a. different kind of variation. The whole work being in G minor, the fifth variation is a slow cantabile in G major, with ornamentations which become the subject of a fluttering fugue for muted strings in the sixth and last variation.

There are five secretaries with the troops in Palestine, where centres have been established at Jerusalem and Haifa. £5,000 is urgently needed to cover the cost of this work alone.
