by J. H. V. Davies
There is a latent conflict of opinion in this country as to whether architecture should express an individual artist's creative powers or whether it should aim at anonymity and derive its chief virtues from a study of function and technique.
J. H. V. Davies believes that there is today as great a need as ever for a positive and passionate approach. He takes the new Hallfield Primary School in Paddington as an example of a truly individual work of architecture whose aesthetic effects ' have yet been secured only after a good deal of research into the needs of the children.'

A group of seven talks
7-The Future of War by Michael Howard
Lecturer in Military Studies
King's College, London
Is there any prospect that mankind, under the threat of annihilation, will be able finally to renounce war as a means of settling international disputes? If wars recur, must they take the ' total form to which we have become accustomed? Concluding this group of talks, Mr. Howard considers such questions as these in the light of some past developments.
