The fact that an experiment is laudable does not necessarily

mean that it succeeds. It will be a thousand pities if the gallant endeavour of EDAC (Education for Action and Leisure) to provide good music " at cost price " fails to achieve the success it deserves. The first series of concerts, with the London Symphony Orchestra, is now in progress at the Central Hall, Westminster. The next dates are April 14th and 22nd and May 6th, all at 7 p.m. The dearest seats are 5s., the cheapest 2S. There will be something wrong with London if they are not all filled.
