A Running Commentary on the International Rugby Union
Football Match by Captain H. B. T. Wakelam from Twickenham
See the short article on page 14.
This match is always the first of the six international matches of the season. Last season Wales were the champions, and Scotland won the 'wooden spoon'.
Today's opening match against
England, however, does not augur well for Wales, for Twickenham is notoriously their bogey ground. They played their first international there as long ago as 1910, but it was not until 1933 that Wales won a game. They have been playing internationals since their first game at Blackheath in 1880-not every year, but almost every year. There was no match in 1881, and the next year they only met the North of England. No matches again in 1898 or 1899, or, of course, in the war years. Of matches played between England and Wales, England have won twenty-four, Wales eighteen, and six have been drawn.

Second Suite for Orchestra
1 March. 2 Reverie. 3 Waltz
William Lovelock is a professor at Trinity College, and has written many works for orchestra, including a Piano Concerto. The work to be given its first broadcast performance on this occasion is his Second Suite for orchestra. The Suite is in three movements, which are excellently scored and have a brilliant finish. It was originally written for Military Band in 1929, in which form it was broadcast some time ago under B. Walton O'Donnell. See article by Eric Coates on p. 11 Benjamin Britten has already established himself as one of the most gifted composers of the younger British school, and in his major compositions, such as the Sinfonietta for ten solo instruments and 'A Boy was Born ' for unaccompanied voices -both of which were first heard at BBC Contemporary Music Concerts in 1934-he writes with genuine inspiration. Britten's ' Soirees musicales ' is his first essay in ' arranging '. He has taken certain Rossini movements and orchestrated them in the form of a Suite. Many of the tunes are familiar, and he has decorated them very charmingly in the idiom of the composer and his period.
