John Ireland , who comes of a literary family, was born at Bowden, Cheshire, in 1879. He studied for eight years at the Royal College of Music under Sir Charles Stanford. After he left the College, at the age of twenty-two, he gradually asserted himself as one of the leading and most individual composers of the younger British school.
Ireland's Overture, originally written for brass band, is based on a musical version of the word ' Piccadilly and was suggested to the composer on hearing a bus conductor calling out the word with varying intensity for the information of his passengers.

An appeal on behalf of THE SCHOOL JOURNEY FUND by Sir EDWARD T. CAMPBELL , M.P.
The School Journey Fund was founded by the late Lady St. Helier for the purpose of assisting poor children of the London elementary schools to go with their school parties to the country or to the seaside for a fortnight. A ' School Journey ' is one effort to improve the physical fitness and happiness of the nation. The cost of the board and lodging varies from about twelve shillings per week per child in a camp to about a pound in a hostel. Railway fare is additional and frequently the children have to be fitted out with clothes and shoes.
Sir Edward Campbell , who is to make this appeal, has been Member of Parliament for Bromley since 1930 and is Parliamentary Private Secretary to the Minister of Health. He is also Chairman of the Governors of James Allen 's Girls' School, Vice-President of the National Association of Boys' Clubs, Vice-Chairman of the Royal Normal College for the Blind, and on the Executive Committee of the National Playing Fields' Association.

Beethoven's A major Sonata for 'cello and piano was published in April, 1809, at the same time as the Fifth and Sixth Symphonies. Written at the height of Beethoven's maturity, it is one of his finest chamber works. Its general character of good-humoured dignity is relieved only by the scherzo. In a work remarkable throughout for sheer liveliness of sound the chief subjects of the first movement and finale are outstanding. The finale combines Beethoven's characteristic nobility and tenderness with an almost Mozartian lightheartedness ; the return of the chief subject is particularly memorable.
