@ Nora Johnston (carillon)
Only four women in the world hold the diploma of the Belgian National Carillon College, and Nora Johnston is the only Englishwoman ever to have won this distinction.
For the purpose of making known the beauties of bell music in places where there are no carillons, such as in many parts of England and America, Miss Johnston has invented a portable carillon which, although not consisting of real bells, produces exactly the same timbre. The technique of playing, however, is the same, for the keyboard is copied from that of the carillon of the Malines Cathedral.

H. L. Puxley ,
Professor of Economics at St. John's College of the Church Missionary
Today's Missionary Talk will be given by H. L. Puxley , a member of the Church Missionary Society on the staff of St. John's College, Agra. He will describe what he calls the ' economic missionary work' which he and his wife are doing in the villages near Agra. St. John's College has been carrying out a scheme of rural reconstruction, and Mr. Puxley has been in charge of this since it was started in 1933. It is a type of work which has not hitherto been generally associated with the missionary enterprise, and Mr. Puxley's account will deal with its effect both on the students who are taking part in it and on the villagers among whom they work.

It is a curious fact that although Sibelius was intensely interested in chamber music during his early days, he has written only three chamber works: a string Quartet in B flat, which is still in MS. (1890), the string Quartet, 'Voces Intimae ' (1909), and 'Suite Mignonne' for two flutes and strings (1921).
' Voces Intimoe ' was partly written in 1908 while Sibelius was staying in London. It is a fine and characteristic work, the most striking feature of which, says Cecil Gray in his monograph on the composer, ' is the extreme prevalence of conjunct motion-almost the entire thematic material of all five movements is built up from fragments of scale passage '.
by The Winning Band of the Alexandra Palace National
The programme will include the test piece, An Epic Symphony (
Percy Pletcher )
The history of wind bands as part of the life of the people goes back many centuries, but the town band composed of brass instruments alone is not so old, while the brass band as we know it today dates only from early last century when the famous ' Besses o' th' Barn ' Band was first organised in 1821 in a village near Manchester.
Even in those days competition between villages was one purpose for which bands existed, and it was undoubtedly the spirit of competition that prompted every town in England, and nearly every village, in course of time, to form its own brass band and join in the fray.
Today, there are some fifty or sixty thousand active amateur bands-men. Their great event is the annual National Brass Band Festival, which for many years was held at the Crystal Palace before it was burned down. At the Festival one hears all the crack bands in the country in a competition the enthusiasm for which, on the part of both audience and competitors, reminds one of a Cup Fipal.

An appeal on behalf of THE ROYAL AGRICULTURAL BENEVOLENT INSTITUTION by Lord ELTISLEY, K.B.E.
Lord Eltisley, who has rendered valuable service to the Government in connection with agricultural questions, is appealing this evening for the Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution, or ' Farmers' Benevolent '. The funds are reserved for aged and destitute farmers who have in many cases been reduced from comfort to penury as a result of a night's gale or a few hours' heavy frost.
Founded in 1860 the Institution has helped 7,000 with small pensions. The pension roll is £30,000, less than half of which is secured by investments, and some 1,200 persons are being assisted at the present time.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to [address removed]
