TETRAZZINI FAMOUS PRIMA DONNA STORY OF HER CAREER "1 am often asked how I carne to be a singer. It Is difficult to answer the question; because I hardly remember when I was not able to sing. I bo Hove I could sing before 1 could talk, and certainly before I was three years of age. In Italy, where I was born, everybody sings-the errand boy gaily strolling along the street, the man sell- ing goods in the open, the family af- ter their evening meal. The people have music in their blood, and it as- serts Itself on every possible Occasion.

MANUKA THEATRE EARLY COMMENCEMENT Part Owner's Statement. Mr. T. G. Murray, M.L.C., a member of the syndicate which purchased the lease at Manuka for the erection of an amusement hall in February last, visited Canberra this week. Mr. Murray stated that the plans for the structure had been passed by the Federal Capital Commission, and con- struction was to be proceeded with im- mediately. He was not prepared, how- ever, to estimate the probable date of completion. The lease was secured by the syndi- cate at the capital value of £7,000 at an auction sale on February last, and it was a condition of the lease that build- ing should commence before May 10. This condition was not complied with, and the needs of the city remain un- catered for in respect to amusements on an adequate scale.
