H. Norton Matthews
Just a year ago Norton Matthews was crossing Africa from West to
East at its widest point from Dakar to Mombasa-nearly 9,000 miles-by lorry, when he was taken ill on the Gold Coast. But it was a fortunate illness, for convalescence brought him to Kumasi, and there he had an opportunity of seeing all that can be seen by an Englishman of the Court of King Prempeh II. Today Norton Matthews is to say- something about the siege of Kumasi, which was contemporary with the siege of Mafeking. He will speak of the great changes that have taken place in Ashanti during the last twenty years.

Maurice Johnstone , who comes from
Manchester, studied at the Royal Manchester College of Music and later at the Royal College of Music, under Sir Charles Stanford and Sir Adrian Boult. On his return to Manchester he managed his own music business, wrote music criticisms for the Manchester Guardian, and conducted the Oldham Orchestra. He then became secretary to Sir Thomas Beecham , and three years later, in 1935, joined the programme staff of the BBC Music Department in London. He has now been appointed North Regional Music Director, a post which will take him back to his native city.
Among his compositions are ' A
Welsh Rhapsody', which was first performed at a concert in .Lancashire in 1932, and repeated at the Proms last season; the concert march ' Watling Street and several works for brass band, in which form of composition he is particularly interested. ' Watling Street' is a quick-step march with a title that has nothing to do with the music. It was thought of after the music was written, and the composer says that he chose it simply because he considered that it sounded better than Opus 52a, or some such prosaic number!

The thing that matters most to the ordinary cinema-goer is what films come to the cinema round the corner, or one within easy reach, and what sort of a programme he will get when he goes there. Today, in a discussion with that popular broadcaster, Herbert Hodge , Kenneth Nyman , the Chairman of the London and Home Counties branch of the Cinematograph Exhibitors' Association, will describe the job of finding out what the public likes, and choosing films that will draw the best audiences.
