In his second talk Professor Mottram divides food into three types, growth, protective and fuel, to each of which groupings one talk in the series is being allowed. He shows that mixing of foods is essential, as one form of food can, as a rule, only produce one sort of result, and there are three results which it is necessary to obtain from one's food, i.e., growth, protection, and warmth and energy; and it is imperative to regulate the rate of growth in the right relation to the production of energy.

There were two Scarlattis, both of whom were brilliant performers and prolific composers, and the whole family to which they belonged consisted almost wholly of musicians. Domenico, son of Alessandro, achieved a wider fame than his father, not only as pianist, but as a composer for his instrument and the stage.
The long line of Couperins was prominent in the history of French music from the middle of the seventeenth century down to the nineteenth. The most famous member of the clan was Francois, who was born in Paris in 1668, who died there 1733.
In a later generation than Couperin, Rameau won for himself the undoubted position of the greatest French musician of his time. Ahvnily at the age of seven he played the harpsichord brilliantly, and as organist and composer lie was held in such honour that he was on the point of being raised to noble rank in 1764, when ho died.
In the first half of the eighteenth century Leo was distinguished as a composer for the church and of comic operas. He is known to have composed serious opera too, but so few of there survive that it is not possible to judge how far they were successful.
In the latter half of the seventeenth and the first years of the eighteenth centuries, Pasquini held an important place in the music of Rome, as harpsichord player, as teacher, and as composer.
Van den Chen was the name of a famous family of bell founders and players of carillons; the name can bo found on sets of bells in Europe to this day.

THE name of Maurice Elvey has been connected with British films from the very earliest years. He will speak tonight as a man thoroughly acquainted with every ' trick of the trade.' In his work as a producer he has consistently kept abreast of the times and adapted his methods to changing fashions in technique. Several of the most considerable British films ' camo from his megaphone,' if we may so phrase it. He made Roses of Picardy, a foolishly titled but sensitively handled version of that great war book ' The Spanish Farm,' Hindle Wakes , in which the dominance of mill machinery over the lives of the cotton hands was suggested with all the ' expressionistic ' skill of a Fritz Lang , The Luck of the Navy and Palais de Danse, shortly to be released. Mr...Elvey is now producer to the Gaumont Company.
