An appeal on behalf of THE DIABETIC ASSOCIATION, by H. G. WELLS , D.Litt.
A Diabetic Association has been formed, under the Presidency of Mr. H. G. Wells , to safeguard the social and economic interests of diabetics throughout the country, and to promote the study of the causes and treatment of diabetes.
Although the Association is still in its infancy, much valuable work has been done, including the provision of holidays for poor diabetic children; owing to the necessity for special diets and insulin injections, these children would otherwise have been unable to obtain a holiday.
Two small grants have been made to workers engaged in diabetic research, and it is hoped that in the future it will be possible to endow a Research Fellowship. Contact has been made with similar organisations in different parts of the world, including the New York Diabetes Association.
Mr. Hugh Walpole is the Editor of the Diabetic Journal, which is published quarterly, and sent direct to all members of the Association.
Contributions will be gratefully received, and should be addressed to H. G. Wells , Esq., D.Litt., The Diabetic Association, [address removed]

THE BBC ORCHESTRA
Leader, PAUL BEARD
Conductor, Sir ADRIAN BOULT Conducted by THE COMPOSER Bliss's 'Colour' Symphony was composed for the Three Choirs' Festival and was first performed in Gloucester Cathedral in 1922. The idea of using colours to denote the moods of music may appear arbitrarily fanciful rather than significant, but here the scheme is more than usually applicable. For example, one could readily associate the first movement (Purple) with pageantry, royalty, and death ; the second (Red) with revelry, courage, and magic ; the third (Blue) with deep water, skies, loyalty, and melancholy ; and the fourth (Green) with joy, youth, and victory. In
1932, however, Bliss revised the ' Colour' Symphony, including its orchestration and excluding the third movement.
