' • .• ap- alnd THE THEATER GUILD, ii The new Theater Guild of Tola is getting off to a good start. With dollar a year dues and an unusually flexible type of organization, it offers an opportunity for education ^nd entertainment wlilch will peal to a great many people which should be; avaUable in ^very 'good town. There Is always a certain percentage of' people in ^very _ town whose hobby is theaL. icalsj and they should have an opportunity to indulge in that hobby. i The most auspicious fact in connection with the beginning of; i tliis orgaSization is that it will not b J-highbrow.," It has been organized frankly for the benefit of its members, not for the purpose of reforming the town. It has no ambition to cram •better" drama down the town's throat whether the town wants it or not. It does hope eventually to be able to bring one good IcgiUmate play to lola each year for the town's enjoyment, but its prime ibject is simply to study the theater in all its phases and to profluce iiome amateur theatricals for Its own enjoyment. It does not intend to'leap immediately into Shakes-" peare or Rostand or Eugene O'Neil; its first productions are planned to be the simplest of comedies. In other words, it is not taking itself ; too .seriously. On the other hand, the Theater GuilB is going to try to do what it does do right! The excellence of its. productions Will be limited by the talent of its members and the amount of money it can spend for scenery—but not by lack of effort, time, or intelligent and painstaking direction. And that is something for which only gratefulness -may be felt. This paper deeply regrets and deplores the low estate to which amateur theatricals in towns like lola have fallein. In nine cases out of ten, the only amateur productions offered the public are of one of two types: either a school production with- the cast limited"to adolescents, oir else an organization production directed by some; out of town producer for the purpose of making a little money. ~Zn the first case, it is impossible I to do a great deal simply because of the age limit of the actors. The second •'case, in- our humble opinion, has degenerated into a pure racket. The outside promoter of a home talent play is interested in just . one thing: producing in the shortest possible length of time a program that will attract the greatest number of people. Their goal has come to be numbers in the cast rather than excellence In the production.-upon the theory that it is eas- I ier and cheaper to make a personal, I appeal to the friends and relatives of a great number of participants than a legitimate entertainment ap- pealTo the public at large. The result in rnost cases Is pitiful. There is no reason why the time honored "home talent play" should ever have become so discredited. If the best of the talent In a town like lola is employed, if It is expertly directed, and if it takes the time and trouble necessary really to put yon the "finish" that makes the difference between acting and making :-a fopi of yourself, entertainment can be produced that^is genuinely worthy of the name. If the new Theater Guild of lola can produce such entertainment from time to time, it will be making a real contribution to the life of the town. , the turn from depression to proa^ perity. ^ I There is a possibility that history may repeat itself. The Americari Instltirte 61 Mining and Metallut-giGal Engineers, meeting in New York this waik. listened to a-description of another great gold strike in South Africa. For several weeks reports have been current in Inside circles of New York engineera that the new South African field might produce enough gold to start the ball rolling toward world prosperity. The engineer who described It ventured the guess that It would add one-eighth to the present world production of gold. I An lola man is in correspondence with a Canadian of.sufficient Importance m official circles to have been sent as a representative of the dominion to half a do2en conferences of the British commonweBlths. This Canadian writes to his lola friend that just beifore snow fell last fall discoveries had been made In a new Canadian gold field which gave every-hope that With the coming of spring a new Klondike woiild be opened. The near certainty of war on an extended scale between Japan and China already lias stimulated the price of silver and doubtless will advance it still further. There have been at least three times in the past one hundred years when a great depression has been ended by a slidden and "unexpected production of gold. ,The discovery of gold in Califomik in 1849 dissipated the depression that had existed in greater or less severity throughout the country since 1837. The end of the great depression of 1893 and 1896 coincided closely with the development of reduction processes and the discovery of new gold In Colorado, Alaska and South Africa that added vtetly to the gold production of the world. J Increased gold production does not bring prosperity alone becausk of the quantity of new money produced, but largely because of the industrial and employment stimulation which the search for gold and the buslhess of mining and reflnin; it brings about, iln 1849, for exani- ple, and for two or three years aft^ erwards, practically every Unem,^ ployed man in the country, as well as thousands whose business was not satisfactory, Joined in the gold rush. Hundreds of thousands hurried away to the Klonclike. And so If these new finds in South Africa and Canada should be confirmed the rush to these places Will do what the world so often has seen before. As to the war In Asia, while It Is not likely to be of such an extent to provide a wide spread stimulus to business. It Is easily conceivable that If China decides to put up a real resistance to Japanese aggression the very first effect will be to enhance the price of silver, the metal upon which she will depend to make her fight. And anything that would stimulate the pujce of silver would help business. All of which, of course, is academic and conjectural. But past depressions have been brought to an end suddenly and effectively by caus^ which man apparently had nothing to do with bringing about, and whlc) had not been forseen. Possibly the -world is ab^ut to witness another such a miracle I • GOLD kSH WAE. -M)re than once in the history of this world, tilings being practical as they are instead of idealistic as "we should Uke to tiave them, gold and war^have enabled nations to make IF THE SENATE SUMMONS AL SMITH From Other Papers f , : WHAT CAN HOOVER DO? K. C'Journal-Post: After March 4, Herbert Hoover wUl be an ex- presldent, after three of the most arduous years ever spent by an occupant of the White House. If his private fortune has been lost, how shall he make a living? If he has enough to live on, how shall he use His talents? The difficult plight of former presidents is discussed in the current issue of the .Forum by Milton S. Mayer, who points out that the dignity of the presidential office is such that a man who has once held It jls expected not to eiam a living, even If he is poor, and not to give the nation the benefit 61 his experience,by taking an active part in ptriltlcs. There have been exceptions, of cotu-se. As Mr. Mayer relates, John Quincy Adams was "the only man who has been able to forget that hr was once president. 'Mien his friends came to him and asked him If he would be wilUng to go to the lower house of congress as representatlye of the old Plymouth Rock dlAtri^, he was able to forget that he had been also United States senator,! a minister to the court of St.: James and secretary of state, and he replied that he would serve as selectman of the town of Quincy If he could be useful; FMT twelve of his elglvteen years In congress, he was the only ex-president aUve; yet that pmod remains the golden age of ex-iH«8i- dents. He stood alone, wiUiout a party and without a friend—'old man eloquent'—and battlol for abolition.' Jefferson. Madison, Monroe, Jackson and Grant died in poverty. Van Buren and Theodore Roosevelt injured their reputatioos by trying unsuccessfully to become president again. Fillmore, Tyler, Pierce, Buchanan, Hayes and even Cleveland died m. cc»nparative obscurity. Ben jamin Harrison was severely criticis­ ed for ictuming to the practice of law. Let a former president try to earn a living, says Mr. Mayer, and "he is back in the public eyei the object of dismiay and ^paragepent: He is mdch tOQ glorious a spectacle; to per^ire; it is better that he ^ould starve" : Perhaps the day will come iwlien the problems of what to do' with former jwesldents will be solved,: FEBRUARY 25. 1933.

"The nation that pays $250,000 for a potato ought to be abl6 to give the men Who have served them as president a reasonable pension.
