Travel Talk: Middle Europe: 6: The Rhine Gorge
Vernon Bartlett
The Rhine has been one of the principal waterways in Europe for centuries. It ts likely to remain so, for it passes through some of the most populous regions, and some of the richest in mineral resources. The Rhine Gorge is the subject of Vernon Bartlett's talk this afternoon. The steep slopes are covered with terraced vineyards or cherry trees, and on the banks themselves are ruined castles that savour delightfully of a romantic medievalism. Mixing with the river traffic-tugs towing barges against the strong current are children in canoes. And it is this great river that divides two very different civilisations - that of the Eastern Franks (nowadays known as the Germans), and that of the Western Franks, or French.

' Mrs. Pankhurst'
THELMA CAZALET
With Mrs. Pankhurst's death in 1928 passed away one of the few surviving protagonists of the Suffragette movement. Her untiring efforts to secure equality for women met with a mixed reception : to many her aims seemed to be ludicrously fanatical. Today, however, with the suffrage won and women working in every class of life, she is recognised for what she really was-a plucky woman with an amazingly constructive brain.
Tonight Thelma Cazalet gives her reminiscences of this great feminist. Miss Cazalet, like her brother, Captain Victor Cazalet , is a Member of Parliament. She has led an active public life. For example, she has had a good deal of experience of local government work-the kind of work made possible for women only through the labours of Mrs. Pankhurst and others like her.

(HERTHA GLATZ and ERNST KRENEK)
Though born at Vienna in 1900 of Czech family, Ernst Krenek is considered one of the leading composers of the younger German school. He studied composition under Franz Schreker in Vienna and in Berlin, where he now lives. ' He appears to be swayed', says Edwin Evans , ' by strictly musical, not to say even technical, impulses, and rarely, if ever, allows his course to be deflected by emotional or temperamental considerations. He takes the " linear " vie.v of polyphony, which prevails in so much recent German music, and is in fact one of its most uncompromising adherents.'
