FOX THE THE HlPHIBTOPHZLIS : And when they find a Hving urhale, Their first thought is to expel the soul; So the mere husk's left in their hand, Minus, of course the spiritual bond. " Getting to closer grips tcith Mature " is the chemist's phrase for thai: Bui he doesn't knoic, poor creature, It's himself 4e laughing al. St l dint : Yes but J hardly -understand. Music, they say, is a language. What follows from that? You may read, write, parse, derive, idealise a language; but the tlrst thing to do with it is u tall; it. And how did primitive man first talk? We can ttudy liiin beat ia the day-nursery in the onomatopoeic, agglutinative, assuei-ational. analogical Masier Tom. Tutu lias no idea whether his tongue ia at the top or the bottom of his mouth, so lie does not of set purpose raise it -and say " al." or "ar") when he wants something he sees on a high shelf, as people who argue tj post facto from " AlMi " and " Ararat" would have tis believe. He calls you or me " Ua." not as accepting us into his family (a tiling lie is very careful about) but as not having yet distinguished between one kind of grown-up who would be likely to gu on all fours and play at bears with him, and another. He talks of a was-rasipherry," nieumnjr that he has ' eated " it. with irr.peccaiit logic but on faulty premises. He asks eternal questions, to the embarrassment of such of his elders as are not accuaiomed to do their own thinking; not so much because iie wants the answers as for the sake of the practice in talking. Tom makes music, too. He begins, as the blackbird does, with a &hort phrase that has caught his fancy, and hums or sings it over a hundred times till he has got it right, that is, as he likes it to be and there Is not a composer of them all who has any better reason for his tune being what it is (Hondo form). He asks questions of his tune: what would happen if you did this instead of that? (Variation form). He answers one tune by another, tacking them together loosely, mixing them up, putting the cart before the horse (Sonata, form). He is rather good at tune, and often puts words to it which make it go better, but his time is usually confined to one or two sorts. He can do marching time (Common) and hopping (six-eight) easily, because he understands how to march and hop; but waltz-time (triangle-time, three-four) is a puzzle, because turning round makes him giddy; for that is the obvious way the feet can mark it, and he does not take unobvious ways. I suppose you were first taught music I was by being shown the places and told the names of the notes on a keyboard: one of the unobvious things, in fact, since the first thing Tom asks is. Why do you-begin on C and not on A? and it would take a quarter of an hour and a great deal of knowledge to answer that. Then perhaps you went on 1 did, at the age of eleven to learn that music began with Guido d'Arezzo, which, even if It had been true, could have had no possible bearing on the Immediate problem. But we were spared one thing. There was very little talking about music: you either did it (and were considered rather a freak) or you left it alone, but nobody ever discussed it. Things are reversed now : few make it and many discuss it. Musical metaphors are quite common in Parliament and the Press. A painter can hardly, it seems, say much to the point about pictures without employing them: but one is not sure that his metaphors proceed from knowledge, as Shakespeare's did when he had no fears It is clefiititelij value for ijour money WOMEN are often accused of relegating the moat important part of their message to the P.S. This Nottingham Smoker seems to have done so too ; nevertheless, his letter itself embraces many telling points, as you will find.

Ask the next man you meet who talks of the rhythm or the keynote of a picture to stag or whistle you " Sir Roger " first rhythmically and then un rhythmically, or to pitch the keynote of " Onward, Christian Soldiers." An Elizabethan could usually have done both with " The Carman's Whistle " and " Selllnger " ( he had used the words. To sing is as natural as to talk. We do not teach the first; why should we teach the second? It was pointed out once to a schoolmistress In America that her girls couldn't run; she looked and saw it was true, and said " Yes, I'm afraid you're right, and it is our fault; we have never taught them." So it is possible that some man of science will one day collect all the babes of England and explain to them, with physiological diagrams, that things They have takn for granted, like eating ajid drinking, Can only be done with a little thinking; They must do them by motions One, two, three If they're to be done as they ought to be. We have begun already to teach boys and girls how to sing. Teachers point with pride to the children's skill in reading from sight, to their knowledge of the lives of musicians, and to their gentle voices. But do these excellent things come first? First sing, then learn the grammar and scansion of it; till and fertilise before you sow. There are difficulties about this singing, simply singing, and letting the magic of the music work. It seems loo simple; there is nothing apparently to " teach." Isn't there, though! There Is the teacher's whole musicality (if he has any) to be. passed on to the children, his faith In music, his glow in the presence of beauty. There is all that he " is," not that he. " says." That ia not nothing: it Is mora than anv Information he could impart. Then, again, the result, if obtained, is not, examinable, and parents and schoolmasters have a way of wanting their boys tn i?et on. Thev vlli Bret on. that is. the same percentage of them as usual will be hammers and anvils in after life. But what music and other cognate passions settle for the boy is what kind of hammer or what kind of anvil he is to be; and that is ouite as important as " getting on." as he will find when he arrives in the great world, where his peers and rivals are all getting on equally with him. It Is, in fact, the kernel of life. FOB HUNGARIAN ART. LADY CHILSTOVS FUND. (From Our Own Correspondent.) BUDAPEST, April 12. A fund for the promotion of Hungarian art and art Industry has been created by Lady Chilston. the wife of the British Minister. The nucleus of the fund, a sum of twenty thousand pengo, comes from the proceeds of tableaux arranged three years ago by Lady Chilston, and private donations. It is proposed that from time to time the committee shall buy works of Hungarian artists and offer these as lottery prizes, so that the fund may be continually renewed. For the forthcoming visit to Hungary of Professor Hugh R. Mackintosh, the Moderator of the Scottish Church, an association will he foundPd of the " Former Scottish Students." The association will include only such Hungarians who have frequently visited Scotland, and jt is hoped that a fund can be created to enable the association to invite clergymen of the Scottish Church to visit Hungary at intervals. - fle - UtitE Th Snemmaldati. Before you make up your mind definitely .that the English are, as we lately read somewhere, psychologically Incapable of singing opera, you should go and hear this one at Sadler's Wells. The voices vary, but there is no bad singing. The acoustics help, no doubt, especially in the front of the stage, and the two heralds who step out at the side, shutting their doors behind them, are tremendous. But good acoustics can also be a test, and most of the singers stand this well. Miss Dyer, with a chor ister's unemotional tones, picks out a note she thinks you may like and flings it at you in a delicious way, and it turns Into poetry; her gamut of gesture and facial expression is at present limited. Miss Coates is that rare thing, a musical contralto, and is a source of strength In any cast. Miss de la Porte helps matters by a clear enunciation. Mr. Austin and Miss Cross conceive their parts In too general a way, they do not go below the surface and convince. The peasants' dance is as beautifully ugly as it should be: the flower dance needs more Invention. The choruses, men and women, sustain well; the conducting is alert: the production has travelled some way towards creating a poetical stage, very difficult to do, but essential. Katharine Qoodion and Phllharmonio Orchestra. Miss Goodson played a concerto of -;Mozart, two in fact, in a way that showed musicianship, which is the principal thing. The orchestra provided a rising scale of excitement in Elgar's early Serenade, Mozart's tidy Allegretto (from a Divertimento) and the intermezzo from " Solomon," of which a repetition was asked and obtained, which is rare for an orchestral piece. The Royal Ohoral Society. On Good Friday, at the Albert Hall, Handel's " Messiah " was performed by the Hoyal Choral Society, conducted by Sir Hugh Allen. The solists were Miss Dorothy Silk, Miss Mary Jarred, Mr. Henry Wendon, and Mr. Horare Stevens.

The method was auugemer unspectacular, and yet every climax was effortlessly given its fullest effect, and in softer passages suelt moments as ilic eerie mysterv of " Kor behold, darkness shall cover the earth," had an extraordinarily moving quality. Finally, the soft singing of the chorus of which the conductor made great use was unusuully true and vital. B.B.C. Orchestra. At the Queen's Hall on Good Friday, excerpts from " Parsifal " were given by the B.B.C. orchestra, conducted by Sir Henry Wood. The soloists were Mine. Orta Slobodskaya, Mr. Walter Widdop, Mr. Horace Stevens, and Mr. Roy Henderson. The concert opened with the Prelude to Act I. and ended with the Transformation Scene and Closing Scene from the same act. Between these were two lengthy stretches in the voices the scene between Parsifal and Kundry (Act. II.), and front Act. III. an excerpt beginning with the Good Friday Scene and ending with Am-fortas's Prayer. The most of the singing came from Mr. Widdop, who was in good voice, and from Mine. Slobodskaya. This latter singer we heard again with renewed pleasure and imprest. She was handicapped by having to sing in a language not her own, but that did nothing to diminish the fine quality or her voice or her expert management of it. National Sunday League.

A. The Easter holidays will see about 30,000,000 people in Great Britain shopping for entertainment. Here is a list of the pictures you can see, and the programmes which seem to me the best bargains for your money. I suggest that London picturegoers can't do better than choose one of the follow ing: Cavalcade (Tlvoli). A grand sentimental translation of Noel Coward's pageant from the stage to the screen, made in Hollywood by a cast and technical staff almost entirely British. State Fair (Capitol). A document ot the Middle West, which compensates for the conventional star performances by good small-part work, good dialogue, and direc tion that has moments of fine austerity. Emil and the Detectives (Cinema House). A German talltte from Dr. Kastner's famous boys' bool, handled with sympathy, humour, and observation, and beautifully played by a large cast of children. The dialogue is In German, but there are English captions, and every child will understand and love it. Dek Traumende Mund (Academy). Modern German triangle story, simply told and sincerely played, with a brilliant solo performance by Elisabelh Bergner. Soldiers ok the King (.New Victoria and Astoria). British romantic comedy with a music-hall setting, which begins and ends well, but sags a bit in the middle. Cicely Courttieidge does her old revue stuff and some new, and all In her best style. A good old-fashioned Western, Smoke Lightning, is also in the Astoria bill. These are probably the best programmes of the week, but London can provide many alternatives. Here are some ot them: King Kong (Coliseum). .-V fantastic nightmare from America about an island 'if prehistoric beasts mid an ape fifty feet high, who Is captured and brought on show to New York. There he runs amok, escapes to the tup of a skyscraper with a blonde film star in his paw. and is finally brought down by aeroplane fire. On being questioned. Ills owner replies sonorously. " No, it was not the aeroplanes. It was Beauty that killed the Beast." That Is about the measure of " King Kong's " profundity. You will And the models and double-exposure photography interesting, 1 ut the pandemonium gets a" bit monotonous after the first twenty-six hills. Definitely not for children. No MN of Her Own ( Plaza) The suspense vnlue of this film rests on the question of hnw many times Clark Gable, as a New York crook, is really going to kiss Carole Lombard, the small town beauty who reforms him. Sometimes he does and sometimes he doesn't 1 myself gave up . . , , , , , j i unci imc ictoiii aiirinjii. ijiir, u'.Ur? KeV iK ... . ... him, and all three of his irresistible expressions are frequently used. The White Sistf.h (Empire). The story of an Italian airman whose sweetheart imagines him dead in the war, and becomes a nun. The old silent version with Lillian Cish was the film that first brought llipnahl Colman to tame; its successor won't do very much for Clark Gable. Helen Hayes is an actress who might be inlerest-in' if she had some ballast lo her voire; Iiit present style or delivery has a tlre-sniiie artlessness. " Gee, wife," is a sample nf the address used by the Italian uflieer to the Italian prince's daughter. I am assured, however, that the Catholic detail is excellent. Hists ano Bt'STLES (Taller). A study of life In that early twentieth-century period (BY P. G. MR. LEE-HANKEY'S DECORATIVE PANELS. Like many other contemporary artists, Mr. W. L. Lee-Hankey, well known as an etcher and painter of rural life In Normandy and Brittany, has been forced to the conclusion that modern conditions ot life and the modern slyle of interior decoration leave but little scope for tiie aciivity of the painter of eiiscl pictures, whilst there is at least a possibility o a demand for pcriiianicnt pictorial wall decoration, specially designed to suit Ihe architectural plan and the furnishing scheme of particular rooms. His exhibition of decorative panels at 'J. Clifford-street, Bond-street, m:iy serve as an object lesson in this respect. The panels were actually painted in the room for which ihey were intended, and where they are now on view, iixed in their respective wall and over-door panels. This method of decoration was much in vogue in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, but fell into dissuetude al a period when it became the custom to till the living rooms with all manner of ollen incongruous bric-a-brac, instead of following a definite scheme in decorating and furnishing. Mr. Lee-Hankey, in painting these panels, has rightly abandonpd his customary realistic manner in favour of a more conventionalised style, aiming at flat pattern rather than atmospheric recession. Ills subjects are based on impressions of Southern French landscapes, the elements ot which lown-creslcgi hills, palms, and cypresses, viaducts and mountain-ranges are combined according to the artist's sense of flmess. That exhibitions of this kind may help to create a demand for decorative wall panels Is suggested by the fact that Mr. Lee-Hankey has already received several commissions for the decoration of interiors, although the show has only heen open for a tew days. MR. MURRAY URQUHART. In his water colours, which are on view at the Letevre Galleries, King-street, St. James's, Mr. Murray Urquhart carefully avoids all linear definition and achieves his effects solely by means o! colour-patches which serve the double purpose of chromatic and formal Indication. His work is water-colour painting at ils purest and never loses the pleasant transparency and lightness constituting the essential qualities 1 of the medium. In Ins desire to evade the impression of weigluincss lie even elimi nates from Ins palctie all Hie inure 0(mque colours, such as cobalt and black, and works in more or less diluted tones of grev, purple, yellow and pink. His paintings are suggestive rather than descriptive of thu subjects which he finds in Lnglish landscapes and in the scenery of Brelon harbours. Delicate graduation of tonal values constitutes the chief attraction of the thlrty- 16, . 1933 LEJEUNE.) which has suddenly become lashtonable through a trick of a costumier's cycle; also Ghosts of the Golden West, a tour through the deserted villages' that were once the boom towns of the old West. Cynara (Carlton). Ronald Colman very nearly acts in an unreal story of a married man's interlude; dialogue is good, but King Vidor, a native American by every Instinct, hasn't Known how to make the European settings convincing. The kid From Spain Adelphl). Eddie Cantor in a patchy bit of fun about college boys and bullfighters; production is lavish, but the laughs don't come thick enough. I AM a Fugitive (Dominion). The most impressive of the chain-gang stories, which nainmers nome every point with an insistent brutality. The argument is a single-minded hatred of the prison system. Paul Muni's acting smoulders, and leaves the real sense of ashes behind. F. P. One (Marble Arch Pavilion). Fantastic story of a floating island in mid-Atlantic. Much of the detail in set construction Is interesting, but the development doesn't come up to the Idea. The King's Vacation Regal). The people of Rurilanla apparently share our convic tion that George Arliss doesn't make a verv good king. So they dethrone him, and he semes down as a country gentleman with his loyal queen, after trying to recapture an oiu love ana nnamg it gone. The following are the best of the general Mr. hobinson Crusoe. Douglas Fairbanks as a bounding modern Crusoe, extemporising civilisation on a tropic Island. i he phantom President. American bur lesque on the Presidential elections a bii horsey, but full of laughs. A Bill of Divorcement. A literary adaptation of the stage play, with John Barry-more at his theatrical best. The main interest is concentrated on Kalherine Hepburn, a strident young American who has a genius for setting audiences by the ears. OUR EASTER PICTURE PUZZLE. From the synopsis of King Kong, the new film at the Coliseum: " Radio Pictures, Ltd., presents with Pride 'King Kong,' from an. Idea Conceived and Executed by Merian C. Cooper, story by Merian C. Cooper and Edgar Wallace, directed by Ernest B. Schoedsack and Merian C. Cooper, chief technician Willis J. O'Brien, a Cooper-Schoedsack production. " A dozen sculptors assisted in making mammalian and reptile ancients . . . upon skeletons exactly duplicating those to he seen In various museums throughout the country . . . Murray Spiv-ack. or ihe sound effects department, queried J. W. i.yue, veneurate paleontologist of the Ios Angeles Museum. Dr. I.ytle said: For the dmiisauiia 1 would suggest that you re-prmlin e various degrees or hissing sounds and for the mammals an admixture of grurils and groans." Spivack then built some Torty sound-making instruments to reproduce menacing hisses. " The idea for ' King Kong is credited to Merian C. Cooper and the late Edgar Wallaee, but two brie! paragraphs from Wallace's posthumously published diary indicate that Wallace did not himself know how it was first conceived. . . . James A. Creelman wrote the screen play, and then Huth Rose was called on to write much of the dialogue'. While ' King Kong' w ill be unique as a picture production, we will still be indebted to Kipling and to Jack London and to all the other authors who have ever endowed animals with hum in characteristics. Such authors are. as it were, ' King Kong's ' literary great-grandparents." Well, that's a goad alibi for somebody. The competition is now open to the public. Who should really be blamed for " King Kohg "T KONODY.) three somewhat variety-lacking exhibits. " Breton Woman " (No. 25), and " Le Chnsi de bon rteconfort " (So. 33), prove that Mr. Urquhart's Interest is not exclusively limited to landscape painting. Yet In neither of these does he achieve results as satisfactory as in some of his landscape worK. Among his most successful productions might be mentioned " Sunset on ' the Thames "(No. 10), " Evening Sun " (No. 111, " Concarneau Harbour from the Battlements " (No. 1!)) and " Silver and Grey " (No. 20). TIIE BEAUX ARTS GALLERY, A pleasant display or water-colours by English and Krencli. living and deceased arlists of various tendencies has been arranged at the Beaux Arts Gallery, Hruton-place. The main asset of the exhibition is that it contains a large number of pictures which, without being particularly stimulating or exciting, are of the kind that is pleasant to Jive with. Mr. Muirhead Bone is represented by one of his characteristic Spanish views: " San Francisco, Cadiz" (No. 4). It is a discreetly coloured crayon drawing, which fully justifies the artist's reputation for unhesltant and unerring draughtsmanship. Another exhibit which attracts attention by the perfection of the drawing as well as by its descriptive qualities wilh regard to the subject is Mr. Harry Morley's un-catalogued panoramic view of " Rome from the Gianlcolo." Some splendid water-colours are signed lames McBey, among them a breezy seascape.
