The Countess Larra
This new series will bring women to the microphone to speak of some aspect of their lives that is likely to be of interest to other women. In this first broadcast Countess Larra is to tell how she was left to earn her living, with no training of any kind and no marketable asset beyond an ability to cook. She will describe her 'privations and humiliations before she was ahte to get work. Her own story will support her plea to any of her listeners who may be parents-however prosperous they may be-to have their daughters trained to earn their living.

Conductor, Sir Hugh S. Roberton from Queen's Hall, London
(Sole Lessees, Messrs. Chappelland Co., Ltd.)
The Glasgow Orpheus Choir will bear comparison with almost any other choir in existence, so far as the singing of madrigals, part songs, and folk songs is concerned. Many of these have been arranged by Sir Hugh S. Roberton , its distinguished conductor. Sir Hugh began his career as the trainer of a church choir and then became conductor of the Toynbee House Choir, Glasgow, a small body of singers who became the nucleus of the Orpheus. For attack, beauty of tone, and perfection of ensemble there are few British choirs that can surpass the Glasgow Orpheus.
