He will explain how a simple bird table can be made even by the most inexperienced amateur, and describe some simple gadgets for feeding blue tits.

' The End of the Stavisky Case *
On January 18 last year. ended in Paris the trial of the twenty-one alleged accomplices of the dead swindler, Stavisky, and with it a stormy chapter in French politics which had involved the downfall of successive cabinets, the murder of a judge, and rioting in Paris. But 1936 was to be a year notable for the number of trials with a political significance and with repercussions that spread across frontiers. The Moscow trial which ended in the execution for treason of Zinovieff and other old Bolshevik leaders, was the most spectacular. Others, the cases of Andre, the German, Antikianen, the Finnish general, and Prestes, the Brazilian radical, aroused great public interest.
Kenneth Adam 's reconstructions of those trials, which were full of drama, will include an analysis of the motives behind them and of their effect both inside and outside the countries in which they took place.

Schubert completed his Fourth Symphony in April, 1816, when he was nineteen. It had to wait more than thirty-three years for its first performance, when the Viennese musical society ' Euterpe ' chose it for their first concert on November 19, 1849.
The Symphony is sometimes known as the ' Tragic '. The title was not given by Schubert himself and is not particularly apt, for, in spite of the rather sombre introduction, and the passionate course of the first movement, the symphony as a whole is by no means tragic. The slow movement contains some of Schubert's loveliest melodies, and the finale (after a fascinating minuet) is fiery and spirited.

Tonight, in the second talk in this series, Professor Arnold Toynbee is to discuss the modern world's new
Faiths, which were mentioned in the opening talk last week.
