Like Glazounov, Ippolitov-Ivanov has been recognized by the present government of Russia. In 1923 he was given the title of 'People's Artist of the Republic.' Born in 1859, he was a pupil of Rimsky-Korsakov, and has held the posts of conductor at the Tiflis Opera, and Professor of Composition in the Conservatoire at Moscow. In composing music with an Eastern flavour he is on ground which is familiar to him, and these Caucasian Sketches are full of vivid suggestion of the Near East.
There are four scenes which he calls:
(1) In the Mountains
(2) In the Village
(3) In the Mosque
(4) Procession of the Sirdar

A Play in One Act by Arnold Bennett
Mrs. Prout, the famous novelist, has many cares apart from the exercise of her profession, for her stepson, Adrian, has had to be turned out for falling in love with her secretary; the butler gives notice, because he disapproves of her latest novel; and the doctor in the flat downstairs wishes to marry her. This morning, there is an attack in one of the leading daily papers on her treatment of medical detail in her novels, and she has an awful fear that the doctor downstairs may have written it. She tries to dictate to her young secretary, but her worries obtrude themselves. The secretary mentally decides that she will write an article on 'Hysteria in Lady Novelists.'

A Duologue by Alfred Sutro
Sir Harry Jardine has not been in San Francisco for many days, but he makes some excuse to visit Mrs. Transford every day. He is twenty-five and she is nearing forty, but is still exceedingly attractive. It is perfectly obvious that he is in love with her. He is rather inexperienced so far as women are concerned, for his mother lived in isolation after his father's death when he was a baby. Mrs. Transford tells him her own story.
