Sir NORMAN ANGELL
IN his talk Sir Norman Angell describes the' game which he has perfected over a period of twenty years. It is a game played with cards— some of which are illustrated on this page-which many who have played it assert is as fascinating as bridge. It depends on an adventure story, of a shipwrecked sailor, who intro- . duces the idea of money on a savage island. Sir Norman Angell tells this story tonight, and describes how the game works. On Wednesday, December 9, Sir Norman and a few friends will play a few hands of the game in front of the microphone, thus supplementing in practical form tonight's description. Though the Money Came can be played merely as a game, its chief purpose is to illustrate vividly the principles that underlie finance; and it is likely that most people who play the game will want to know what it really illustrates. For these, Sir Norman has written a book about the game (' The Money Game '). Sir Norman Angell spent his youth in the Western States of America, and returned to Europe as the correspondent of several American newspapers; he is a well-known journalist and lecturer, and has published many books on political and economic affairs. ' The Great Illusion,' which appeared in 1910, was published in no less than seventeen countries.

HOW much Kreisler has done to enrich the repertoire of the modern solo violinist, must bo abundantly clear to listeners, from ithe frequency with which his name appears as composer or arranger of violin pieces. His own career has been in many ways an astonishing one. He was only seven when he made his first concert appearance, and in the same year entered the Vienna Conservatoire, in spite of the rule that pupils must be at least fourteen years old on admission. He was the youngest pupil who ever studied there, and certainly the youngest who ever won the Gold Medal for violin playing. He was then only ten. Two years later he achieved another amazing success, by winning the first Prix do Rome of the Paris Conservatoire, in competition with forty others, not one of whom was less than twenty years of age. After some successful concert tours in Europe and America, he came back to. Vienna and gave up music altogether for a time. He took a course in Medicine, studied painting both in Paris and in Rome, and finally became a cavalry, officer... During his army service, he laid his violin entirely aside, developing, no doubt, that splendid physique which enables him to withstand so well the , arduous life of a virtuoso. - -Taking up his music once more, he soon made himself one of the foremost concert players in the world, and though his career was again interrupted by army service, during the War, when he was wounded, he is still, probably, the most popular solo violinist of today.
