Count Alfred A. Hessenstein
Though Count Hessenstein is technically a Hungarian and is of German descent, his family has for generations been practically English. His grandfather was a morganatic son of one of George Ill 's sons-in-law, the celebrated Elector of Hesse who supplied the Hessian mercenaries for the American War. Count Hessenstein, who has made a special study of Central European affairs and modern European history, contributes frequently to British newspapers. He gave a broadcast talk on ' Old Vienna ' on April 5.

Gerber's Rhapsody ' Balaton ', dedicated to the composer's wife, is the first of his compositions to be broadcast. The music is descriotive and relates the story of a Hungarian peasant. We hear him playing to his people and bidding them farewell. He wanders from his native plains with his violin to seek his fortune as a strolling player. For a while he is content with the countryside, but soon he is drawn into the turmoil of life in a great city. Bewildered by stress and strain and mentally maimed and disillusioned, he dreams of the serenity of his native land. The last section of the work portrays his love of home and the immediate urge to return to it.

Conducted by CHARLES SHADWELL
Anona Winn recently went to Devon for a holiday before starting a hard three months on the halls. But her holiday was not altogether a rest cure. She woke up one night to find smoke and flames coming in at her window ; the room below hers in the hotel was on fire. From then on the night was arduous, though no harm was done in the end.
This evening mistress will meet maid at the microphone and exchange views. Taking part will be a young modern mistress, a servant of long standing, a young servant and a woman who has been both mistress and maid
Why are so many girls unwilling to enter domestic service? Are they fairly treated when they do ? When there is a fault, is it always on the side of the mistress ? Is the accommodation with which the maid is provided comfortable? Has she as much personal freedom as girls in other jobs ? Should there be a fundamental change in the relationship of mistress and maid ? These are some of the questions that will be thrashed out by tonight's speakers, each of whom views the problem of domestic service from a different angle.
