' Late sown crops ' by W. S. Mansfield
The problem of cropping late-ploughed land will arise soon. Even on the most forward arable farms, where stubbles have been ploughed before Christmas, odd pieces find themselves uncropped in late April. W. S. Mansfield knows this problem in the Eastern counties, and this evening he will discuss some of the possibilities that farmers should begin to consider.

(Section A)
Leader, Paul Beard
Conducted by Basil Cameron
Glinka, Balakirev, Rimsky-Korsakov, Lalo, Bizet, Chabrier, Debussy, and Ravel have all written one or more works either based on Spanish tunes or frankly setting out to secure the ' atmosphere ' of Spain. One of the finest is Ravel's Spanish Rhapsody.
It is scored for a full modern orchestra, including two harps, celesta, and sarrusophone, all of which are used with restraint and a remarkable feeling for contrast and variety of tone colour.
