Doe he go as far as James Joyce who puts In a novel tliu stream of consciousness? Is it possible to do this on the stage?" Mr Glare answered tho question by pointing out that the fact that it Is a communal art saves drama from such extreme subjectivism" Maeterlinck was characterized by the speaker as having a profound sense of that twilight borderland between the real and the unreal which Is the mystery haunted life of the soul Maeterlinck asks not for a theatre of movement but for one of "soul states" In the last analysis he resorts to symbolism to express hi ideas Tho aristocratic Xoh play of Japan were held up by MrClare im supreme examples of urirealts-ii- and symbolical drama In them life is held at a distance yet depths are reached beyond the power realism to express Tho Noh plays deliberately exclude reallutiu verisimilitude and illusion They succeed where realistic and romantic drama could not suueeed liy reason of their close adherence to a number of strict conventions The result Is a strange beauty which expresses what is dtdicate fragile and evanescent Extensive extracts from the Noh

diverge slightly by mills altering their schedules a® the week pro-greaser Tho trade is well pleased that this authoritative series supplants the weekly ustiinales that have been made by various trade authorities which usually differed noticeably from one anothei The rate of 318 per cent represented for last week compared with monthly aveiages of 40 S9 per cent for September 4943 per cent for

The trade is unablu to guago at all closely the present rale of actual consumption of steel but feds that whatever tlm ralo is It will in general continue through thu remainder of the year There f no means of knowing how much accumulation there was during the recent bulge In steel and manufacturer of steel and conversely how much liquidation 1 going on at present In only a few Instances aru stuck actually seen but that stocks must have plied up somewhat was shown conclusively by thu“ production figures No ono could even lanoy a rate of steel consumption in the circumstances approaching closely tlio rate of teel production last July t That stocks whatever they may be will be fully liquidated by the end of the year is taken for granted excupt in the care of tin plate and cans "If liquidation is 'moderately well completed now there "might be a slight upturn In demand on the mills If there 1 much more liquidation to b® accomplished s marked decrease In the steel producing rate from last
