Oct. li - Paul Robeson, now generally accepted as the Race a greatest actor, made a new hit - with Metropolitan critics when he opened at the Comedy Theatre in "Black Boy" last Wednesday evening. "Black Boy" is Mr. Robeson's newest play. It was written by Jim Tully and Frank Dazey, white, and produced by Horace Liveright. It is the story of a prizefighter, fashioned somewhat after the career of Jack Johnson. Alexander Wollcott of The World said: "That ebon and engaging giant, Paul Robeson, was at once the occasion for, and . to a reasona ble extent, the justification of the new play called 'Black Boy.'" Burns Mantle, in The News, said "There is much that is suggestively genuine and fine about Paul Robeson, the colored actor. He towers high above the play they have given new play called "Black Boy. . Alan Dale, in The American, said "A figure of tremendous, Samsonic force, a voica like a church organ rmrinfir out an anthem, and a per sonality . exuding fire and strength, made up the equipment of Paul Robeson, who appeared last night in a multi - colored tir. ie on pnze - fiehtine at the Comeay Theatre. It was called 'Black Boy. Mr Robeson's escapade was probably de signed to show the soiled and man eev interior of the 'ring as a pro fession, its smeared politics, its odi ous adherents and all the accesso ries that give it "tone." It was a violent and garish affair, with suggestions of most of the calendar's favorite crimes, a sort of 'love in terest,' and all the villians that the most exuberant mellerdrammer monsrers could possibly brave. In the second act when perfidiously - it was determined that Black Boy should be made drunk, in order to lose the fight, there was a staged chaos of singing, dancing and row dyism that was more bedlamic than Dicturesoue. Hut throughout, itooe son figured as an actor oi graai force, and immense interest. His nerfect diction, his lack of self - con sciousness. ana his sense oi numor are all distinctly worth watching ZANESVILIE, OHIO Mr. Emery Myers, a graduate of the Zanesvlll high school, left last week to enter Union university In Richmond.

'. nil x - I've always thought and said that in the colored people there are actors of innate power, and enormous his - trionism, better than all the imported Sicilians, Russians, and those of other Nations. We have them with us, and seldom do we call upon them for assistance. But they are there with the goods. I can recall no failure. Paul Robeson has tragic importance, and a dominant personality that many a star might envy. Last night, he gave an exhibition of some of his powers. They are crudely displayed, but they were unmistakable. I thought that he showed to better advantage in the first act, where he had net won his spurs as a prize - fighter. Later, in the ferocious scenes in Harlem, Robeson, did some more obvious acting according to obvious methods, and the curious individuality he stamped upon the first act seemed to theatricalize I liked Robeson hugely. With a voice like his. even Shakespeare would be possible and probable. The supporting company was a good one, and the one girl in the piece was neatly done by Edith Warren (Freddie Washington)." preached two Interesting; sermons.
