STRONG 'LINES' . ) ? _._ i LANGUAGE AND STAGE There has been a little rumpus in London between the producers of a new play and tho actress chosen to iinperso- i nate the principal character. The author expected her to exclaim to her lover, as her last word in a tiff, ''Oh! go to hell!' With a . squeamishness which in these (lays of freedom in language is not evident, even in the ranks of ladies, the actress tloeraredlv refused to mouth i what she regards as a horrid word. 'You must,' said the producers to her. 'I won't,' said she. And there the matter remained until the first produc tion of the play. The producers thought that, to save her position, the actress must relent, and, despite her dogged persistence iu saying 'Xo,' she was allowed to appear. When the crucial point arose the actress, instead of con signing her lover to Hades, said, 'Oh! get out! Go — anywhere!' Whereupon the incensed producers sent for the ac tress's understudy.

ELECTRIC HARES FOR COURSING [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 31 October 1926
ELECTRIC HARES FOR COURSING Is the practice of coursing to be robbed of the cruelty to which the har ried hare has been subjected? Instead of hunting real hares, greyhounds can .now chase electric hares. Manchester has been given a special course v on which dogs chase an electrically-driven hare, which they can never overtake, bo that the cruelty of the killing of live hares is avoided and all the excitement of the hunt is maintained. The hares aro controlled from a tower from which they are always in sight, so that their speed can be kept just beyond that of th» leading hound. The electric hares can run jap to 60 miles an hour, whereas the maximum speed of the dogs is 45 miles. The dogs are released after the electric hare has been given a good start.
