' Plant Improvement '
' Manuring and Cultivation '
B. A. KEEN
Dr. Keen is to talk to you about the all-important question of manuring and cultivation, and he will speak of the dangers of over-manuring or giving the soil too much and too rich food. The soil has first to be prepared. It is teeming with multitudes of tiny living organisms—many of them the gardener's best friends, for they bring about chemical changes in the soil and make the various plant foods which the soil contains available for use by the growing crops. But these organisms require certain conditions if they are to thrive, and so we dig.
We dig to let in fresh air and warmth-a process known to gardeners as trenching. Dr. Keen will tell you how the soil has to be supplied with ' humus', or the residue of decaying vegetation or organic matter in the soil. Heavy crops of vegetables exhaust the humus, and it is therefore up to us to keep up the supply. It can take the form of digging in waste vegetation of any kind, or crops specially grown for the purpose ; it can take the form of farm manure ; or it can take the form of artificial fertilisers.

Evelyn Rothwell (oboe)
Benjamin Haigh Marshall , the conductor, studied at the Royal Academy of Music. As a student, he formed a small string orchestra to provide incidental music to the dramatic performances. The venture proved so successful that it was enlarged and formed into a permanent professional combination, all the players being drawn from among the young professionals who, like himself, were just beginning their careers. The average age of the orchestra is twenty-three.
10.18 EVELYN ROTHWELL AND
A. S. Arensky (1861-1906), one of the most interesting of minor Russian composers, is known in England chiefly by his pleasant, lyrical chamber music and by his polished miniatures for piano. Though a pupil of Rimsky-Korsakov, his work is not very remarkable for national flavouring.
The ' Variations on a Theme of Tchaikovsky', in its original form, was scored for violin, viola, and two cellos, a combination producing a suitably elegaic tone colour. It was rearranged for the normal quartet as a more practical ensemble, and was later arranged for string orchestra. The theme is taken from Tchaikovsky's beautiful song, ' Legend ' (' Christ in His Garden ').
