The parts of this symphony were recently discovered in the Edinburgh
Library by Dr. Hans Gal, who scored it and declared his belief that it was by Joseph Haydn. His view was supported by Sir Donald Tovey , but other eminent musicians disagreed, asserting that the composer was jeally Joseph's brother, Michael Haydn. Marion Scott , one of the leading Haydn students in the country, suggests that the first two movements are by Michael, the third by Joseph. But, whoever wrote it, the symphony is a very delightful little work.

The arrival in London and reception by Their Majesties the King and Queen described from Victoria Station
This, the first of four outside broadcasts this week in connection with the French President's State visit to London with Mme. Lebrun , will describe for listeners their arrival at Victoria Station where they will be met by the King and Queen and members of the Cabinet.
Michael Standing will be on platform No. 2 and John Snagge in the courtyard of the station, where a Guards' band will be playing. It is of interest that French observers will be in similar positions to relay a description of the scene to France.

Eveline M. Lowe , J.P., Chairman of the London County Council
The Local. Government Act, passed just fifty years ago, may be described as the corner-stone of local administration as it exists today. A year after the passing of the Act, the County Councils of England and Wales met together for the first time ; Dr. Robson will describe this revolution in local government, and will also outline the wide range of activities which now come under the administration of the sixty-two County Councils.
The London County Council, the greatest administrative body of its kind in the world, met for the first time on March 21, 1889. The L.C.C. is this week celebrating this anniversary, and Mrs. Eveline M. Low will describe the growth of the body, and the wide range of functions that it carries out.
