Liverpool-born Jack White could have been a professional footballer, but music ran more keenly in his veins than goal-getting, and he decided to take it up as a career. His first professional job was in Liverpool some ten years ago. Since then he has played at popular dance halls all over the country-notably the Brighton Regent, the Manchester Palais de Danse, and the well-known Charing Cross Road Astoria. The Collegians number twelve, including three White brothers. Jack himself plays the saxophone and piano, his brother Jerry plays saxophone and guitar, and his brother Tom the drums.
Recently added to the combination has been vocalist Rosa Lenner , one of the famous Lenner sisters, of whom Judy Shirley is one. Together with pianist George Johnston , Jack White does all the band's arrangements.

Debussy never wrote any symphonies, overtures, concertos, or even sonatas (in the classical sense of the term). The nearest he approached to the conventional sonata design was in the String Quartet in G minor, which was completed and first performed in 1893, when he was in his thirty-second year. It is recorded that Debussy once declared that in this quartet he had said all he had to say in that form.

Tchaikovsky's third and last String Quartet dates from the same period as the ballet Swan Lake. It was begun in Paris during the winter of 1875-76. ' 'I am working at full steam to finish the Quartet', he wrote to one of his brothers in February, 1876, after his return to Moscow. ' After that I shall rest for a while, i.e., do nothing but finish my ballet.'
The Quartet is dedicated to the memory of the Austrian violinist, Ferdinand Laub , the composer's friend and colleague and (as a member of the Moscow String Quartet) one of the original performers of his two earlier quartets, who had died in March, 1875. The elegiac mood of the whole composition touches its deepest gloom in the fine third movement.
A journey to the three Ridings by D. G. Bridson
A programme of life on the Broad
Acres in tale, tradition, and song
This evening D. G. Bridson will present one of his most ambitious programmes-a programme that will tell the story of the three Ridings of Yorkshire from sea coast to mill, from dale to moor. You will hear the voices of 'Yorkshire folk, and an interviewer will build up a pattern and a picture of England's largest county in speech and music.
The programme is the first of several large-scale county histories that will be broadcast in the near future.
