Mr. JAMES STEPHENS reading from his own
Works
A the author of ' The Crock of Gold.' if for no other reason, Mr. James Stephens would bo entitled to a place in the front rank of living writers. In addition, however, to this famous fantasy, and to the other that many judges consider a bettor book—' The
Demi Gods ' '-ho has written some lovely poetry, which was recently published in a collected form, and when he forsakes the ' Celtic twilight ' for the street-lamps of Paris, Dublin, and London his work has those keen qualities of perception, sympathy and irony that distinguish ' Hero are Ladies' and 'The Charwoman's Daughter.' His now book, ' Etched in Moonlight,' is being eagerly awaited in literary circles both hero and in the United States.

RADIO revues are one of the brightest features of the broadcast programmes, and a new revuo on the air is as eagerly awaited by its own audience as a new revue on the stage. Tonight's production has many points in its favour. Mr. du Gardo Peach, who has written the ' book,' is one of the most versatile of humorists, and he has ample experience of microphone technique. The east includes many broadcast favourites, headed by Morris Harvey , probably the cleverest revue comedian in the country, who has very recently given provincial listeners a taste of the quality that gave him such a reputation with London theatregoers in the days of The Nine O'clock Revue.
