DOROTHY GREENE (Soprano)
IN any Selection from Rigoletto we are sure to find two or three tunes that. as soon as the work was produced (in Venice, three-quarters of a century ago), were whistled all through the city. We shall almost certainly hear the Duke's gay song about women, Quesla o o quella, telling how one is as good as another to him; his uncomplimentary ballad, La donna é mobile—Woman is fickle, and the ecstatic Caro nome, the love song of Gilda, the heroine, when she calls upon the ' dear name ' of her lover (the Duke, who has pretended to be a poor student). The detached, descending notes at the opening of this song make it easy to identify.

THE Boat Race is now only a fortnight away. and with the coming of the crews to Putney, to start the final and critical stage in their training, interest in it becomes more real and acute. In this talk Mr. G. 0. Nickalls (who, with Mr. J. C. Squire , will again this year broadcast the running commentary on the race itself) wilt give his impressions of the present form of the two crews, and discuss which of them is more likely to develop into a winning eight before the great day arrives.

rpHERE are some millions of people who will
J- require no introduction to the writings of Miss Ruby M. Ayres. For the sake of the rest, it will be enough to tell them that she is the author of some of the most popular romances of recent years, from ' Richard Chatterton , V.C.,' to ' The Romance of a Rogue,' and to let them ascertain the reasons for her popularity at first hand tonight.
