William Wallace 's symphonic poem ' Villon ' is an orchestral commentary upon passages from the poems of Villon, a French poet of the fifteenth century. In England he has found a large number of translators, of whom may be mentioned Swinburne and Rossetti, while Henley and Stevenson have, each in his own way, discussed his work.
The symphonic poem falls into four sections. The first is in the form of a Scherzo which represents Villon's wayward nature. The second is a slow movement which suggests the famous ' Ballade of Dead Ladies '. The third is based upon another ballade made at the request of the poet's mother to pray to ' Nostre-Dame '. The last section reflects the riotous call of Paris, an echo of past youth, back again to the gaiety of Paris, and then the chime of a clock and, as darkness falls, the prayer is heard and the music ends peacefully.

broadcast from a Surrey wood
As listeners know, the venue of the last bird-song broadcast was changed from the Suffolk wood to the wood in Surrey from which admirable broadcasts were given last year. The microphone will take up its position there again this evening, and it is hoped that the cuckoo, delightful as it was, will not be quite so curious or persistent, and that more warblers will he heard.
A quarter of an hour broadcast of bird song is always a chancy thing-an aeroplane, a dog, a fox may interfere (a fox actually did recently). The second nightingale broadcast was a great success, by the way-two songsters of the night answering each other beautifully.

An appeal on behalf of THE LONDON ORPHAN SCHOOL AND
ROYAL BRITISH ORPHAN SCHOOL,
Watford, Herts by GORDON RICHARDS
The School was established as far back as 1813 and since that date 11,668 children have been received from all parts of the British Empire.
Four hundred and sixty-five boys and girls are now in the school, and are being fed, clothed, and given a secondary boarding-school education up to Matriculation standard. Each boy and girl on leaving is provided with an outfit, and, whenever possible, is placed in a suitable post.
£30,000 is required for general purposes each year. The champion jockey, who is giving this appeal, hopes to ride his first Derby winner on Wednesday, and to be on yet another winner this evening.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed].
