F. L. Stevens
One of the most interesting of London's underground railways is the tube privately owned by the Post Office, which runs all day and includes a three-minute service over the 61 miles between Liverpool Street and Paddington, serving the post offices between. Mr. Stevens is to bring to the- microphone a P.O. official to explain some of the devices of this remarkable train service, which runs trains without drivers or guards.
He will also discuss the London
Tubes and the District and Metropolitan Railways, all under the London Passenger Transport Board. He will speak, among other things, of walking along the line to work, of the new station to be opened at Aldgate, and of the official rat catchers.

D'Indy, Cesar Franck 's favourite pupil, for many years held a leading place in the French world of music, as composer, teacher, and author. He succeeded Franck in 1890 as President of the National Society of Music. A man of immense industry and the highest ideals, he did more for the music of his own day and country than it would be easy to
'reckon, and his compositions range over a very wide field. Essentially French, his music springs from the best impulses of the romantic movement though his own character was too strong to be very much influenced from outside sources.
His compositions include about a dozen chamber works. One of the earliest was the Piano Quartet, Op. 7, which was composed in 1887. It is very typical of d'Indy's style, showing fresh melodic invention and scholarly workmanship.

In 1854 Schumann told the twenty-two-year-old Brahms that it was his ' duty ' to write a symphony. Brahms set to work, but soon declared that the attempt was a miserable failure, for ' a symphony is no laughing matter nowadays '. At last, after twenty-two more years of careful thought and experimenting, he completed his Symphony No. 1 in C minor, which was hailed as a worthy successor to Beethoven's ' Ninth '. Hardly had the applause of the world of music died down when Brahms produced his Symphony No. 2 in D.
Although this latter symphony is conceived on just as big a scale as the C minor Symphony, the texture of the music is actually very much clearer, the melodies more cantabile in character, and the whole spirit of the music brighter-it has been called Brahms's ' Pastoral ' Symphony.
