For the past few years, an industrial revolution as striking as any of the last century, has been going on in the new coalfields of Kent. Luckily however, precautions are being taken to ensure that the result is not another Black Country such as mars the North of England. One of the most interesting movements for keeping the coalfields from the worst evils of industrialism is the settlement which has been founded almost as soon as the coalfield, and which it is hoped will grow as the coal-field grows and provide the people living on it with a centre for recreation and education from the first, instead of coming into the midst of a highly industrialized area, as such settlements as Toynbee Hall and Mansfield House have had to do. Miss Jan Macdonald will describe this interesting experiment in her talk this afternoon.

Lebensstürme ('Life's Tempests')
SCHUBERT calls this piece' a characteristic
Allegro,' and with that, and its name, in mind, little more explanation can be needed. Both players set forth the rather stern theme with which it begins, but that mood gives way very soon to a more tender one. Like all Schubert's music, this is rich in melodies, some of which suggest that life's tempests are not all of a very violent order. The mood of the music is at times quite gentle, and at other times almost playful, though it has, of course, its stormy movements.
