' Cricket-The M.C.C.'
R. H. Mallett
The four talks in this series this month will be devoted to cricket, and the first two will be broadcast by Mr. R. H. Mallett , who has had cricket interests since the year 1878.
He was one of the founders of Durham County Cricket Club and became its secretary and afterwards its captain (in 1895). He was also one of the founders and former chairman of the Minor Counties' Cricket Association. He came to London, was elected to the M.C.C., and played a lot of club cricket. He has been a member of the M.C.C. Committee over two periods of five years, and for a number of years arranged all the programmes for visiting Australian, Indian, West Indian, and South African teams. On the Board of Control of the Imperial Cricket Conference he has represented both the West Indies and Australia.
But what makes this talk on the M.C.C. so especially interesting is that, apart from his long association with the governing body and informing spirit of the world's cricket, he has been one of the three members of the M.C.C. Commission that has been recently looking into ways and means of drawing bigger crowds to the county cricket grounds.

Led by Laurance Turner

Lambert Kathleen Long (pianoforte)
After the production of Dardanus at the Paris Opera in 1739, Rameau wrote nothing for the stage for five years. But in 1744, in obedience to a Royal command, he set to work on a libretto by Voltaire (who was then the official Court Poet), and the following year, on February 23, in celebration of the marriage of the Dauphin with the Infanta Marie-Therese, La Princesse de Navarre was produced at Versailles.
In the words of Voltaire, La
Princesse de Navarre was ' a mixture of opera, comedy, and tragedy ' ; but it won the approval not only of the public, but of Louis XV himself, who promptly appointed Rameau ' Composer to the Court', with a yearly. salary of 2,000 livres.
