If .. a person has- a real , genuine heart-interest in the task at hand , that task is certain to be ; well done , no matter what it may be . It is interest that begets perfection always—not merely , interest in the effect ; that the undertaking will bring to the doer , but rather the effect and the good that others will derive . . It isn ! t easy to subordinate self below others , but until we are able to do so our work will never reach further than ourselves ; o . ur attainments will be short-lived and our entire-life-struc 1 ture weak . Mr . and Mrs . Jimmy Barry have played . Keith s here in Syracuse twice this season and I learned from them something that their fellpw artists might well take unto themselves and make a part of their lives , and that something is interest in the task at hand . Both these artists ...

A sketch team had given the stage ; manager their cues for the curtain calls , etc ., and instructed him to give but TWO CURTAINS at the finish of the . act . When the sketch was over the s . m . rang down the olio and the asbestos—together !
