10 THE MANCHESTER GUARDIAN. TUESDAY. OCTOBER 31, 1933 extended. Indeed, even if Mr. De. Valera were driven out of office to-morrow nisi plans for the home production of the Free State's cement and sugar could not well be dropped, Again, an incoming "Ministry dare scarcely go back' on Mr. De Valera's lavish 'commitments under pensions unemployment insurance, and house building. Thus, However much Mr. Cosgrave and Mr. Dillon might desire to follow a conservative financial uoliey. their hands would be forced. "What Mr. Dp Valera has already done must influence decisively the future course of Free State policy. Some therefore argue that it is far better that Mr.-De Valera should continue in control to conduct the under-. takings for which he is responsible rather than that they should come under. the direction of men who dislike them in principle but cannot in practice abandon them. This same school of thinkers maintains that while Mr. Cosgrave was successful in husbanding and increasing the resources of the Free State, he failed to use the reserves he bad accumulated with sufficient boldness when the slump came. Mr. De Valera is now using Mr. Cosgrave's reserves, rashly, perhaps, but still energetically, and that, it is argued, is what the present crisis chiefly requires. He'nce they conclude that Mr. De Valera's early downfall is neither probable nor desirable, Bince even the English duties on Irish produce are no more burdensome than the payment of five millions a year, and it is not yet certain that England would agree to any substantial reduction in that sum. That is the strength of Mr. De Valera's tactical position. In the absence of a firm offer from England he can declare that his opponents are committing the country to pay over to England the five "millions a year which he is keeping at home. If a firm offer were made conditional on the Free State's acceptance of loyal partnership in the Commonwealth, Mr. De Valera could then exclaim that Ireland is being asked to sell him and the Itcpuhlic for so many thousand pounds. OBITUARY Sir Augustus FitzGeorge Sir Augustus FitzGeorge, a great grandson of George III. and a cousin of the present Queen, died in London yesterdnv at the age of 86. Sir Augustus was the third son of George, second Duke of Cambridge, who married Louisa Fairbrother, who took the name of FitzGeorge. Ihe father of Sir Augustus FitzGeorge was an outstanding figure in the Victorian era and was Commander-in-Chief of the British Army from 1856 to 1895. Sir Augustus received Iiis knighthood from King Edward VII. on the death of his father when he waited upon his Majesty to return the insignia borne by the Duke. Sir Augustus was the last surviving member of the suite which accompanied Kine Edward when, as Prince of Wales, he visited India m 1875-6. Like his famous father, he was a soldier and spent thirty years in the army. " Throughout my life," he once said, "I found my parentage rather a hindrance than a help. My father was so afraid of being accused of favouritism that if it was a question of myself or someoue else getting an appointment it always went to the other .man." He was only nineteen years of age when he went to Canada in the Rifle Brigade. While in India he was for six years aide-de-camp to Lord Napier of Magdala. the Commander-in-Chief. He remained youthful and full of vigour almost to the end of his life. Until well over eighty he was a keen golfer. . . . SIR JOHN DICKINSON Sir John Dickinson, the former Chief Magistrate of London, who sat at Bow Street for seven years from 1913 to 1920, died on Sunday at his home at Woking, Surrey. Dickinson was born in 1848. the sod the late Joseph Dickinson, M.D., F.K.S., and was educated at Cheltenham and at Trinity College, Cambridge. He was called to the Bar at the Middle Temple in 1871. He became a magistrate in 1890, when he was appointed to the Thames Court. There he remained for nearly twenty-five years, gradually acquiring a knowledge of the varied activities of the East End of London, which was said to be almost unrivalled. Recognising the part which poverty played in the criminal problems of tlie district, he gained the reputation of being one of the most merciful of magistrates. In 1913 he was transferred to Bow Street and two months later, on the death of Sir Henry Curtis-Bennett, he was made Clrief Magistrate. During the war many notable cases came before him, including .that of Roger Casement. He retired on reaching the age-limit in 1920. He married in- 18S4 a daughter of Mr. Thomas H. Holderness, of Liverpool. A verdict of accidental death "was returned at the inquest last nicht on Frank Richardson Kirkup 20), of English Street, Carlisle, who died after his motorcycle collided with a lorry on the Carlisle-Penrith road on Ssturday night. The driver of the lorry, Richard Diamond, of Clarence Street, Salford, was exonerated from blame. THE SOUTH AFRICAN HOLIDAY A- shrewd traveller, writing of sea-voyaging, as the true antidote of city life, described it as a rhythm of living, of eating and of sleeping, which in turn induces a-rhythm of .thinking. There is a monotony in ocean travel which . may oppress at first but later ' heals and soothes. The restful Influence of ocean horizons and the Invigorating effects of sea air day after day replenish mind and body alike. It' Is these benefits of sea-voyaging that have brought the South African Holiday- Into such general favour, but the ocean trip Is merely a prelude to the fuller change of climate, scenes, and Interests In this Dominion of sunshine, health, and happiness.

AIR SERVICES WITH THE EMPIRE North Atlantic Project IMPERIAL AIRWAYS DEVELOPMENT The development of air services to both Australia and Canada was referred to yesterday by Sir Eric Geddes when presiding at the annual general meeting of Imperial Airways, Ltd., in London. Speaking of . the extension of the 'England-India air service to Australia, Sir Eric said that from Karachi to Singapore the line - would be operated jointly and equally by Imperial Airways and an Indian company called Indian Trans-Continental Airways, in which Imperial Airways owned 51 per cent of the share capital. The service at the beginning of this month was extended to Rangoon, and by the end of December would be carried on to Singapore. Last Link in Australian Route " The Australian Government," Sir Eric Geddes added, "has assumed responsibility for establishing the line from Singapore to some point in Australia, and has decided to invite tenders for the carriage of air mails over that section of the line. Your boaTd has made a concordat with the Queensland and Northern Territory Aerial Services, Ltd., of Brisbane, for the formation of a joint company to" tender for the Singapore-Darwin-Brisbane section of the England-Australia service." A great deal of investigation was still beins devoted to tbe North Atlantic project, and the company had made satisfactory contacts, and had established certain understandings in regard to co-operation with tbe Canadian and Newfoundland Governments in regard to this route. " Canada is likely to be, by force of circumstances, the last of the ereat Dominions with whom we shall make contact by means of a regular air service," Sir Eric said. "We can, however, look forward to "developments taking place on this transatlantic project in complete harmony between Great Britain and Canada." They hoped to establish during next year, "in cooperation with Pan-American Airways, a service between Bermuda and the United States. He was hopeful that the objections which formerly prevented the Italian Government from giving the company permission to operate on the Paris-Brindisi route had now been removed, and that in a short time it would be possible to fly from end to end of the Empire routes. I Increase of Air Mail It was a great disappointment that the air-mail services were not developing as fast as passenger traffic. If our own and foreign postal administrations could be induced to remove the causes which hampered it, there was no Teason why the air mail should not develop in a similar way. The company was in a position to operate night services when it became profitable to do so. During the year ihe company's aircraft flew 2,031,000 miles, of which 1,760,000 were on regular services. Passenger traffic had the greatest rate of increase, the passenger ten-mileage being 103 per cent greater than that for the previous year. Mail? carried increased 28 per cent. There were signs of postal administrations realising that air-mail services were being accepted as a normal means of conveyance for inai's by the public, who would soon demand that its first-class correspondence should not be segregated for special treatment and charged special lees.

The wireless play to be revived this week as part' of the radio drama festival is "Carnival." In making this adaptation from his novel. Com p ton Mackenzie had as collaborator Eric Maschwitz. now director oi variety, who until he gave up the editorship of the "Radio Times " to take this post used the name "Holt Marvel!" for his broadcasting work. The play is a romantic story of the hansom-cab period, and through the many misfortunes of its principal woman character, Jenny Pearl, makes an unabashed appeal to sentiment. Longest Play Performance When first produced it set up a record in 'the world of radio drama for length of time, and if we except Shakespearean broadcasts it holds it stilL In readiness for tne revival the pruner has been at work, and instead of occupying more than two hours, as it originally did, it will be pl8yed to-night in an hour and forty-live minutes. YESTERDAY'S. An Economic Talk ' The fifth talk in the series " Economics in a changing world " was broadcast by Commander Stephen King-Hall last night from Natipnal. The talk dealt first with the economic factors governing the present-day wheat market, and the second subieet tc be reviewed, was Fiesident T?nrspvpl f.'a Tip.w monetarv policv fr restoring the general price level. The outline of this policy was tatoulated for greater elaritv into four "sections. The nhip'ct, nf restoring the- orice level was explained, and it was pointed out that until ihe schema had succeeded in raising the price level it was impossible to fix the dollar in terms of commodities. References were made to the intended avoidance of cheapening the dollar by issuing 'paper money and to the American belief that the purchasing power of the dollar when finally established would be maintained for this generation -and the next. The controversy created by .the recent American purchase of gold was then discussed, and the effect on the franc and the pound given a passing survey. The talk was concluded with references to the happy economic conditions exist-in in nresent-dav Turkev and as a prelude to further talks on economics in the East a mention of waae-earnincs in a Persian carpet factory. In his talks Commander King-Hall asks for opinions and criticisms, and presumably receives a large postDag. une would imagine wai in trvine to nlease everyone his talks initrht become woolly and confused ; on tue contrary, xney are concise ana xuciu, his subiects are neatly divisioned; each subject is presented clearly and almost invariably driven nome witn a wen- chosen illustration. K. H. HUNTING THE PIRATES The Post. Office hunt fo wireless pirates in the Newcastle-on-Tyne area has closed, and a large number of prosecutions are expected to follow. Later, if there is reason to believe that the district still contains a substantial number of offenders, a return vitit will be paid. Yesterday the campaign began in Hanley; Stoke, Stafford, Shrewsbury, Oswestry, and Chester, and it will last here until December 2. After that date it will come the turn of the Liverpool and Manchester districts. 12 Midnight 12 0 National (North, London, West, Newcastle, Scottish, Belfast) : Close.

BROADCAST Some Tudor. Songs The Tudor songs announced for this week's ." Foundation " series in the National broadcasts ought to ''attract all listeners who can appreciate the beauties of the lyrical art born in our music 300 years ago. Miss Anne Tliursfield and Mr. Herbert Heyner sang yesterday, each artist presenting four choice examples of the "solo .songs" which, with the accompaniment for lutes and viols, wero among the first things of their kind ever published in England. Mr. Heyner's' group included airs with instrumental parts dealing freely in the false relations and subtle rhythmic figures which were 'corrected" by Victorian editors and left so until Peter Warlock and E. H. Fellowes and a few other enlightened people restored the old progressions. It is interesting to heat Thomas Greaves, the ' Elizabethan com-,poser of the song- " Man first created was," veering towards .the more settled tonality of a later age," though in doing ' so he betrays no lack of evidence in his general style. The older modes may have been shackles, but for the more daring spirit of the late sixteenth century they were' shackles lightly worn. Miss Tnursfield had still mort exquisite music for us. Her opening number was the lullaby from an unknown writer, " Sweet was the song the Virgin sang," this being .followed by Bvrd's "My little swcet.darling" the solo tiiat anticipates certain features in romantic lyricism two centuries later. The air " Oh, death, rock me to sleep." which Anne Boleyn is known to have sung, was among the pathetic n'usic given in yesterday's recital, and listeners would note the pealing bells in the accompaniment. We have no overpowering love for archaic instruments ; still, on such an occasion, a small spinet was wanted' and not a piano. G. A. H.
