SONG CYCLE, ' DIE SCHÖNE MÜLLERIN '
(' THE FAIR MAID OF THE MILL ') and OTHER SONGS by SCHUBERT
Sung by ROGER CLAYSON (Tenor) pAVSE (Suspense). He is filled with vague disquiet, in the midst of his joy.
He hangs up his lute with a green ribbon upon it, for the song that once came to him comes no more. His heart is too full for song.
Mit dem grunen Lautenbande (With the Green Ribbon). He remembers that she said her favourite colour is green. He will cut off the green ribbon and send it to her, as a symbol of everlasting love.
Der Jager (The Huntsman). A rival appears, and the miller is jealous.
Eifersucht und Stolz (Jealousy and Pride).
Why does' the brook rage so ? It is because the rival has come, and it is sympathizing with the miller ? He bids it turn back and upbraid the faithless maiden; but, he adds, don't tell her of my pain.
Die liebe Farbe (The Favourite Colour). He meditates sadly on his favourite colour, green-the colour that she loved, and the colour of the huntsman's coat. He is a huntsman now. The hunt must end in death, and the green turf will cover him.

IF one were assessing the benefits conferred on humanity by the various scientific developments of the last twenty years, one would have to give a very high place to the ultra-violet ray. The really marvellous healing qualities of the ray will be described by the Professor of Physics at the Middlesex Hospital in this evening's talk.

IN the third talk of this series Mrs. Wheeler discusses such entirely practical questions as the best size for the dramatic society's stage, lighting, scenery, and decoration. She goes on to consider such points as the best way to ' fake ' cheap stage properties, the always difficult problem of costume, and the vital matter of make-up—always a trap for amateurs. She also explains the meaning of various common stage expressions.

AIMS AND IDEALS IN THE THEATRE
IF anyone were to be asked who was the best. known producer at present on the English stage, the answer, nine times out of ten, would be Mr. Basil Dean. Ever since his association with Mr. Rea ,who first brought him to London, he has remained one of the most striking and interesting theatrical figures of the time ; as interesting tor his failures, such as his superb production of Will Shakespeare , as for his successes such as Flecker's Hasian and The Constant Nymph. It is to be hoped that neither the film nor the talking. film will seduce him from the legiti. mate theatre. Actors speak of him with awe. What better compliment or testimonial can a producer desire ?
