INTERNATIONAL Rugby football this year has been full of surprises, in which Ireland and Wales have themselves figured largely ; and by this time it has become very hard, on form alone, to predict the result of any match. This afternoon's clash at Cardiff between Wales and Ireland is a match that will play an important part in determining the final order of the countries in the championship table, and listeners everywhere will be very eager to hear the result and the description of the play.

SCHUMANN : Twelve Little Pieces. Nos. 9 to 12
THE Olympic games are coming on again, and, after various doubts and difficulties, it has been decided that Great Britain shall again enter the lists. How far she will succeed there is another matter, and there is need of the widest and strongest public interest and support if our teams are to have the best possible chance to compete with the Americans, the Scandinavians, and the Finns. Lord Rochdale, himself a sportsman who played cricket for Cambridge and for Lancashire forty years ago, will endeavour to spread this interest in his talk.

'FURTHER GREAT HEIGHTS' by H. C. G. STEVENS and EILEEN DE MANCHA
Commere, RUBY MILLER
HOW much rudeness-how much bad blood and bad temper-how many insults and recriminations and vituperations-has not the internal-combustion engine been responsible for since first it broke clamorously upon our peaceful roads ! Everyone knows how a certain type of motorist seems to lose all his manners as soon as he gets into the driving-seat of a car. In tonight's talk, Mr. Watson Parker will give the new owner some hints-by which many an old owner may also profit-for behaving in a style that will conduce to his own comfort and that of others on the road.
EVELYN TIERNEY (Soprano)
THE WIRELESS MILITARY BAND, conducted by B. WALTON O'DONNELL
THE SHEPHERD KING (Il Re Pastore) is a short 'Music Drama ' (Mozart's own title) in two Acts. It is an early work, written, when Mozart was Director of Music to the Archbishop of Salzburg, for the celebrations which were arranged when the Archduke Maximilian (the younger brother of Marie Antoinette ) paid the Archbishop a visit.
This Air is one of the few extracts from the Opera that wo hear nowadays.
The music is quiet and expressive, and the orchestration is very interesting, Mozart having used, among other instruments, two Cors Anglais and a Solo Violin.
The Savoy Orpheans, Fred Elizalde and his Music, and the Savoy Tango Band, from the Savoy Hotel
