C. F. LAWRANCE
This term C. F. Lawrance , Horticultural Superintendent of the Northamptonshire County Council, who gives the practical talks in this series, will be talking chiefly about vegetables and flowers.
Last week Mr. Lawrance spoke about preparing the ground for vegetables generally. Today he is to deal with preparing it for potatoes. He will tell listeners how to select the ' seed tubers ' ; how and when they should be allowed to sprout before planting, and the correct distance to plant apart. He will also discuss earthing up the crop and lifting and storing, and he will have something to say about pests and diseases.

The D major Violin Sonata (K.306) was written during Mozart's visit to Paris in 1778. In strong contrast with its companion-piece, the tragic E minor (K.304), this Sonata is powerful and brilliant ; the cadenza
in the last movement is almost concerto-like. Abert, the greatest modern authority on Mozart, draws attention to the ' passing shadows' in the development section of the andante. ‘ The last movement', he adds, ' constantly alternates between a capricious French allegretto and a sparkling Italian allegro, a form for which Mozart shows much fondness in his violin concertos.' Sonatine Jean Françaix 1 Vivace. 2 Andante. 3 Theme varie Jean Francaix belongs to the postwar generation of French composers. He was born at Le Mans in 1912, but later went to Paris where he studied at the Conservatoire under Nadia Boulanger. In a RADIO TIMES article on the composer Alan Frank summed up his music as follows : ' Francaix's music is not quite like any other music written today. It is entertaining, but not humorous in the sense that Poulenc's is .... It is music that is as delicate as the lightest white wine imaginable and the one should be listened to exactly as the other is drunk. You will probably find that it lacks substance, but you will certainly not find it stodgy.'

Peggy Wood is so well known to us through Bitter Sweet and The Cat and the Fiddle, and now Operette at His Majesty's, that it is difficult to think of her as American. It is even more difficult to believe that she has never broadcast in this country before.
Is it too much to hope that one of the most charming personalities on the musical stage will sing ' Dear Love ' from Operette, and possibly something from Bitter Siceet also. It will be remembered that she created the part of the Marchioness of Shayne in 1929 in Noel Coward 's modern classic at his Majesty's, and played it there with enormous success for over a year. It was her first appearance in England.

'The Private Lives of Trees'
By about this time of year most trees have come into leaf, though a few are still only in the bud stage. Ray Bourne is going to talk particularly about the development of leaves and will invite listeners to report on their own observation in this respect. He will go on to explain many observations that the ordinary rambler in the countryside will have made at one time or another. Mr. Bourne is a forester of wide experience who spends a lot of his time travelling about England studying the local variations in forestry problems.
