Department 243 West Seventeenth street New York City drama department Mr Barber says the modern professional theater of America or dinarily lets out contracts for scen ery properties and costumes and makes practically no provision for intelligent lighting Cooperation is lessened and the producer Is obliged to handle a large amount of liaison work between his working groups Fn the professional American ami English theaters the producer is seldom the director The producer functions as a supervising sjid con necting force In the V continental theater for the most part the work ing groups are still gathered to gether under one roof and the regis seur combines the work of director and The second part of the book Is given over to the study of scene construction and this is most inter esting for it gives the practical knowledge of how stage furniture a fire place a pullman car an arch way an alcove a log cabin a free standing balcony a tree trunk etc are built Stage as Machine Quoting from part three of the book on The Stage as a Machine The ideal modern stage is one whose physical shape and conse quent limitation has the one prop erty of expansiveness If this great space be properly proportioned and structurally capable of containing certain mechanical features it may be made an adjunct and pid for the production of almost any type of play in almost any manner Mr Barber here to tell of the various curtaini riggings the me thods of handling sets on the stage and the running fastening and bracing offlats and other parapher nalia which is really more intricate and more technical but still interest ing Several pages are devoted to off stage noises and here Mr Barber deals wtih tne manner of creating these noises For instance he says If two lengths of bamboo are fastenedto the shaft of an electric motor and the motor set to run ning the result wUl be an effect of wind Vary the speed of tho motor to vary the tone The most common use of explo sive is to represent gunfire A shot gun is used for big guns If it is fired into a barrel partly full of water the volume of the explosion will be greatly increased Use full black powder loads A machine gun itself shooting blanks is sometimes used to give effect of a machine gun Strangely enough it is not very satisfactory or real The last part of the book deals The Master Touch of an expert crafts man working with good equipment al ways produces super ior results Marshall Swifts shoe repair man is a master craftsman Why discard good shoes when we will call for them Repair them and return them again to your door Marshall Swift Inc 210 JV Delaware CRAFTSMEN IN KEEPING THINGS NEW PHONE 788 or 789 with the business side of the tech nicians work Technician Must Judge Here is a paragraph from this section It is impossible to sot down rules for dealing with human beings but it is an essential knowl edge for the technician He must judge his assistants with sufficient accuracy so that he may check the execution of work in all its details not by a direct checking of each de tail of the work an almost impos sible procedure with large scale Droduction but thru a knowledge of the probable weaknesses and defi ciencies of each mew head Thus the technician may direct his attention to likely errors rather then dividing his time equally between all details regardless of their need of attention 3n the other hand this knowledge of the crew heads may be obtained by observation of details But the tech nician must do more than note the correctness or imperfection of de tails he must proceed from observed details to general conclusions and make these conclusions the basis for his future inspection and attention The book ends with a nine page glossary of stage terms This alone is Juring for the layman for he finds suchstrange words and what seems to be unfittingdefinitions but that are common in stage life SHOWER FOB BRIDE THORNTON May mlscel aneous shower was given In the

family meets for any thing like leisurely sociability and conversation is at the dinner table The evening meal remains the one daily opportunity for father mother and children to sit together and talk of things other than the mechanics of living Tolerance and Courtesy What topics come up for discus sion Is there a free and honest give and take of conversation across the board Is there tolerance and courtesy in discussion between old and young Dont let the talk dwell on the petty annoyances of the day thq state of your health the trials of your job Children all too readily pick Tip the tone of complaint and irritability The things which are emphasized in conversation at the dinner table are the things which your children will consider important If your dis cussion of the daily news gravitates generally toward accidents and crime you must not be surprised when your childien evidence a shockingcallousness in regard to questions of public welfare Talk Honestly Censor your topics of conversa tion before you bring them up but talk honestly before your children Aftor you have entered upon a doubtful subject it is useless to gloss the facts sweeten your inter pretatlon or pursue your discussion in veiled language Let everybody hold the floornow and then In the the dinner table each one from the shrill voiced seven year old to the most reverend member present should be allowed to say his say without fear of ridicule or crushing interruption The Radiant Cross Service to Be Held at Olivet Church A special service entitled The Radiant will be given at the Olivet Methodist
