STRATEGY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 31 October 1926

STRATEGY. At a certain club the other day two card-playing actors were annoyed by the class of bore who persists in looking on at a game and making Teniarks about it. After standing the nuisance for some time, one of the players asked a specta tor to play for him until he returned. The spectator took the cards, whereupon the first player left' the room. , Pretty soon the second player followed the example of the first. The two sub stitutes played for some time, when one of them asked the waiter where the two original players were. 'They are playing in the next room,' was the reply.

THE ACTORS THREE ASPECTS OF THEM NOTED CRITIC'S PRAISE [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 31 October 1926

THE ACTORS THREE ASPECTS OF THEM NOTED CRITICS PRAISE James Agate writes in the London Dailv Chronicle: — Three things are sometimes said in dispraise of actors. First, that they are too sensitive: second, that they are too ell-bred; and. third, that they play too much solf. Let me take these three points i 1 their order. I I -will begin by asking whether we I should not everyone of us be extremely sensitive, sny, about our personal ap pearance, if our livelihood depended upon the length of our nose. The poet, j Byron was evremely sensitive about his I club-foot, which was silly of him. bn i cause it could not affect his poetry, and did not affect his fame. But it would .have been a very different matter if Byron had been fin actor. If a player had the brains and tempe { rament of Garrick ? nd Kean, Salvini and Irving rolled :nto one, a club-foot or ' eren n squint would still ruin Mir-. Tn 1 the old days the critic examined the ! actor as minutelv as a horse-dealer ex ' amines a ho...

DEATHLESS DRAMA OPTIMISTIC VIEW THE PLAY'S THE THING Drama is undoubtedly the very oldest forni of human entertainment, and its origin dates back to prehistoric times. Yet, unlike most other amusements, it has not changed greatly even in thou sands of years, and it seems destined to lire for ever. In fact, it appears to become more' and more popular as time goes on. In spite of these acknowledged facts, there have always been a number of ieople who have prophesied that other kinds of entertainment would -ob what is known as legitimate drama, of its popu la-ity. The adve-it of each new form of similar public diversion has been heralded as a serious menace t~ the stage itself. But still new theatres are coii stantly being built, and some plays still j run for 1000 nights and over. ' The plain fact is (writes Huntlev Wrjglil, the famous English comedian) that the public Trill never let the aTt of the actor wane, much less die out. A moment's thought would convince any nonorer mar a nat...

Mr. Hansen, M.L.A. for the district, in his opening speech, congratulated the school baths committee and their aids on the splendid result of their efforts.

Alderman Jolly, in declaring the baths open stated that he had no hesi tation in describing the pool as the best equipped in Queensland. Not only was it a perfect pool but the terraced lawns, flower beds, goldfish pond, and dressing sheds created an environment which could not fail to inculcate a love of the beautiful in the children.
