Founders of Little Theatre Gather at Banquet Given As Honor For John Craig Many of the group which found - ' ed the Winnipeg Little Theatre in October, 1921, attended a banquet In honor of John Craig, the theatre's director, and Mrs.' Craig, at Moore's banquet hall, Thursday night. Tribute after tribute was paid by many among the 50 present to the work of the director in the early days of the organization and since. 'The real test of acting la comedy," said Col. W. K. Chandler, "and I recall with much pleasure John Craig's production of The Mask and the Face, at the Auditorium, in the same year that a company In New York failed In putting it across. I have seen The Taming of the Shrew a score of times and his presentation .was easily near the top." Tribute to Mrs. Craig Rodger Wallace, proposing the toast to the ladies, spoke of Mrs. Craig, an Indefatigable and resourceful worker In the theatre, whose .alma and energy were an Inspiration for members. H. A. V. Green, K.C., reminisced on behalf, he said, of "the old dodderers." There were other reminiscences by Prof. Reginald Jones, M. C. Walston, Mrs. O. Jewitt, Miss Norrle Duthie and Miss Hilda Hesson. DeV'on To Art Mr. Crslg countered with a reminiscence of his own. In his early production of Pierre Patelln, one man playing the part of a workman had merely to walk across the stage, his whole performance taking 13 seconds. Yet the player arrived at 6 p.m. to make up for the night's show and spent the rest of the time making his hands look like .a workman's. "That's devotion to art," said the director. Mrs. Craig spoke of the sadness which all felt that the Little Theatre was "In the hands of the trolls." But that feeling was softened by the thought that, as In kPeer Gynt, the trolls could not abide "sunlight and the sound of bells." Those present Included: MR. AND MRS. John Crali R, R, omuutll M, C.

Handicraft Guild Hears Speaker on Work Being Accomplished In Alberta The Manitoba branch of the Canadian Handicrafts Guild met Thursday morning with Mrs. G. B. Story presiding. The modern trend of handicraft In Europe was described by Miss H. Romanchych, who also told of the work being done in Alberta. In this province spinning and weaving occupy a prominent place, and hundreds of looms and spinning wheels are In use. Products are exchanged by the workers, such as raw wool for home spun yarn, and there Is a big demand for the finished articles. Woven rugs and blankets were exhibited by the speaker. In her opinion the preserving and developing of handicrafts in Canada has been done chiefly by the Canadian Handicrafts Guild, and she hopes that soon the various national groups will use their traditional designs on a Canadian background. In Europe the old handicrafts are being carefully developed and In some countries the governments direct the work In schools. Under modern Industrial civilization men are apt to become machines and to lose their individual skill, but the true traditions of handicraft are being fostered, and the craftsman expresses himself through the work of his hands. Miss Romanchych showed a collection of beautifully decorated Easter eggs, and lovely embroidered blouses from the villages of Central Europe. Mrs. J. S. DeLury moved the vote ot thanks. The financial statement was given by Mrs. J. W, Manchester, the report of the sales committee by Mrs. A. W. Mac - klnnon and the local council report by Mrs. H. E. Bergman.
