An appeal on behalf of THE AFTER CARE ASSOCIATION (PHYSICALLY
DEFECTIVE CHILDREN) by S. P. B. MAIS
For thirty years the After Care Association has helped crippled children, and those otherwise physically handicapped, to become established in life.
It cares for them up to the age of eighteen years ; assists with training fees; helps them to an annual holiday ; arranges medical treatment; and-most important of all-does its best to find them jobs. Nor does it stop at that, but helps to find lodgings and assists towards the cost of tools and fares to work, when wages are small or negligible.
Tonight's appeal is for funds to extend this indispensable service.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, 'and should be addressed to [address removed]

Leader, Paul Beard
Conducted by Fritz Busch
Fritz Busch, brother of Adolph Busch the violinist, has held important posts in the opera-houses at Riga, Stuttgart, and Dresden, and in 1918 he conducted the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra at the festival in honour of Max Reger, his close friend. Among other important engagements, Mr. Busch conducts the Stockholm Concert Society, shares with Malko the conductorship of an important series of public concerts in Copenhagen every season, and is conductor of our own Glyndebourne Opera. For several years Mr. Busch was Music Director of the broadcasting circuit at Stockholm.
Beethoven's Second Symphony
It was not until 1800, when Beethoven was thirty years of age, that he embarked upon his First Symphony in C, which is more or less carefully modelled on the conventional lines followed by his predecessors. In the Second Symphony in D, however, he shows complete mastery over technical problems, and although he still accepts the symphonic pattern of Haydn and Mozart and uses the normal classical orchestra without trombones, the firm and unmistakable signature of Beethoven is apparent throughout, particularly in the fiery first movement. And there is one magical passage near the end of the finale that could have been written by no one else.
