Mrs. Asta Kenney is a Norwegian, wife of Rowland Kenney , author and formerly Editor-in-Chief of a London daily paper, now of the Foreign Office.
As chemist, medical student, writer on literature and art, riding instructress, small-holder, and translator of books from the Scandinavian and German languages, Mrs. Kenney's life has held many and varied interests. She will describe how, when over fifty years of age, she was moved by an impulse to join an art class and take up modelling. It was the most satisfying thing she ever did, and she is a firm believer in women of her age ' going back to school '. Within a year she had her first complete work, a life-size bust of a monk, accepted by the Royal Academy and exhibited at the 1936 Exhibition.

Although there are fewer and fewer blind children, the number of people going blind in adult life is increasing. What is being done to help blind people to develop or divert their abilities in such a way that they may become wholly or partially self-supporting ?
Tonight Howard Marshall will discuss with organisers and blind people themselves some of the progress that has been made in recent years.
Edwin Fischer The ' Waldstein ' Sonata was written by Beethoven when he was thirty-five. It takes its name from its dedication to Count Waldstein, who was one of Beethoven's earliest friends and supporters, and whose friendship dated from the days of Beethoven's youth in Bonn. It is one of the finest sonatas of what is known as Beethoven's middle period.

at the BBC Theatre Organ In featuring Edward O'Henry last month in ' Unit Organ Parade', Leslie S. Barnard wrote as follows : ' Now, unfortunately, this very polished and stylish musician is lost to broadcasting for the time being, as he is organist at the Forum, Jersey. He says he is very happy there, but should he return to these shores and broadcasting, I am sure that he will be given a warm welcome by the legion of listener friends he made as a result of that long series of highly individual recitals from Madame Tussaud's.'
O'Henry's league of listener friends will be able to give him that warm welcome tonight. He is Hying over from Jersey especially to broadcast.

Although the D minor Symphony appeared in 1851 as No. 4, it was actually sketched soon after the Symphony No. 1. But Schumann withheld it for ten years and then thoroughly revised its construction and orchestration. In a letter Brahms, who after Schumann's death arranged for the publication of the original version, said: The original scoring has always delighted me. It is a real pleasure to see anything so bright and spontaneous expressed with corresponding, ease and grace. It reminds me (without comparing it in other respects) of Mozart's G minorEverything is so absolutely natural that you cannot imagine it different ; there are no harsh colours, no forced effects and so on.'
