From page 45 of 'New Every Morning'
Beryl M. H. Goddard
'Wherever you find yourself, take it in the day's march.' That is the spirit of Mrs. Beryl Goddard 's talk. She will speak of her experiences in the Falkland Islands during the war and of life in Sierra Leone afterwards. She was a commissioner of Girl Guides in West Africa, and broadcast in the Children's Hour there. She spent many of the happiest years of her life in that country, and suffered her greatest sorrow there. She has been a wanderer who has found that
' All places that the eye of heaven visits
Are to a wise man ports and happy havens.'

When Dvorak visited America, he became extremely interested in Negro and Indian folk songs, so much so that the thematic material of his 'New World' Symphony, 'Nigger', String Quartet in F, and The String Quintet in E flat was intentionally derived from these sources. At the same time, however, Dvorak did not use any actual songs, rather did he exploit the idiom. The Quintet in E flat is clearly in the spirit of Afro-American folk song, particularly from a rhythmic point of view.

On May 15, Clarkson Rose 's famous and happy holiday show ' Twinkle ' is to open at the pier, Eastbourne, for the third summer in succession. These broadcasts, last night's and this afternoon's, give listeners the opportunity of hearing the company in full strength before they set out to conquer Eastbourne anew. Established in 1921, 'Twinkle' had' its first season in Ryde, Isle of Wight. Since then it has played record seasons at Shanklin and Westcliffon-Sea, to say nothing of a recent tour of the principal theatres of Australia for long seasons in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, and Brisbane. Last year at Eastbourne it played to over 120,000 people. Clarkson Rose , the proprietor, was one of the pioneers of the modern type of seaside show. He appeared at the Royal Command Performance at the London Coliseum in 1928, and this year scored a hit as the ' dame ' in the Lyceum pantomime, London. He and his leading lady, Olive Fox , are the only artists left of the original ' Twinkle ' company.

From Gluck is said to originate all modern opera, or at least that side of it that comes under the heading of Grand Opera. Iphigenia in Aulis was one of Gluck's greatest successes in his zealous campaign of directing French opera into that dignity and sanity from which it had lapsed since the early days of the art. The libretto of Iphigenia was founded on Racine's drama, which itself was in some measure adapted from Euripides.

Grieg's Lyric Suite consists of four of the Lyrical Pieces for piano, which have been selected because the style of the music lends itself admirably to orchestral transcription. They were first arranged by the conductor Anton Seidl , and later rearranged even more admirably by Grieg himself. The suite is among the most popular of Grieg's orchestral works.
