Joseph Jongen , the Belgian composer, was born at Liege in 1873. He studied
' at the Liege Conservatoire where he was Professor of Harmony from 1901-1920, when he went to the Brussels Conservatoire as Professor of Fugue and Counterpoint. After five years he was appointed Principal.
In his early works, written between
1902 and 1914, Jongen shows the deep influence of Cesar Franck , but m his post-War works he shows great individuality.
Florian Leopold Gassmann was a Bohemian composer who was born in 1729 and died in 1774. He composed over twenty-three operas in the Italian style, many of which attained considerable popularity during his day. He also composed a number of symphonies which have a certain interest today as being early examples of the symphonic form. Among his pupils was the famous Salieri.

Senator 0. ST. JOHN GOGARTY , M.D.,
The story is told of Oliver Gogarty that he was carried away as a hostage in the troublous times and escaped from' his captors by jumping into the Liffey. Whilst swimming across, he made a vow in the classical manner that if he Rot over, he would write a poem in honour of the river which saved his life. He kept his vow. ' An Offering of Swans ' was his first published work.
He is a Senator of the Irish Free
State, doctor and surgeon, poet and playwright, archer and aviator, wit above all. A talk on Dublin by a celebrity of Dublin should be worth hearing.
