' Signal Beacons of Bygone Days '
Alan Ivimey , who will be remembered most recently for his twelve talks on the City of London, has made a special study of England's many beacons, and is going to talk about the fascination of beacon hunting, and how it can be made the object of many outdoor excursions.
When the beacons were last lit on a grand scale for the Silver Jubilee celebrations of 1935, Alan Ivimey received letters from all over the British Isles describing the local beacons. It is many years since the beacons of England flared their warnings of strife and invasion, though once they formed as important a feature of national defence as does ' A.R.P.' today.

Felix White (born 1884) is a self-taught musician with markedly individual creative talent. His Second Rhapsody, his fourteenth orchestral work, composed last year, is in free variation form, and is based on three Irish airs from the Petrie Collection: a love song, ' 0, Peggy of the fair hair ', an ancient clan march, and a keen or lament. Writing in 1915 about folk song, Stanford described this keen as ' a specimen of the finest type of wild Celtic imagination.'

Benno Moiseiwitsch is one of the greatest pianists living.

He stayed there for five years, later going to Vienna under the maestro Leschetizky. He played at his first Queen's Hall concert in London in 1909, and scored the first success of many that have endeared him to his public over here.
