Vivien Leigh Leads Fight For Theater By TOM A CULLEN NEA Staff Correspondent LONDON—(NEA) - The British are. the oldest face. Under the stolid exterior, beneath the frozen reserve, run pa?sions which make them the envy of lesser breeds. Such are the passions which were aroused to sav«-temporarily, at least—the 120-year-old St. James theater from the knackers.. This acient. flea-bitten palace was scheduled to-become the site of a modern seven-story office building until Viven Leigh put on an act remminiscent of her Scarlett O'Hara role. Tlvj actress wife of Sir Laurence Oliver was ushered out of the House of Lords for her performances, but she won her point. - ri Miss Leigh's victory eclipses the exhibition of pArs Helen Jarvis, a short, middle-aged housewife who stopped the tennis finals at Wimbledon by running onto center court and waving a "Down With Taxes" banner in front of the Queen. Mrs. Jarvis even tried a repeat performance a fow days later in Trafalgar Square, fluttering ' the pigeons with A new banner reading: "Petition the Queen to Make Me Prime Minister Now." The British can understand Mrs. Jarvis. even if taxes remain unchanged and Prime Minister Mac- mjllan remains at 10 Downing St. For British get excited by even odder causes. Take the bird watchers. No sooner are plans made to erect an atomic power plant in some'deso­ late bit of waste-land than someone discovers the site is the favorite nesting ground of the Dark- Breasted Brent Goose. In pour the letters to the Times. Or Roman ruins. Just recently, the Forestry Commission caught the dickens for planting trees where 8 Roman road once passed. The Roman road no longer exists, mind you, but even the sites of ruins have their protectors nowadays. Hard Put to Explain Nevertheless, observers are hard put to explain the ruckus over St, James theater Granted that Oscar Wilde and Bernard Shaw had their first-night successes there, that the youthful Charles Dickens made curtain speeches for his first play; the theater is a fire-trap full of pillars and ^ide seats from which Times Hera|d, Carroll, Iowa mm Wednesday, Aug. 7, 1957 / Mrs. Mearl Pottroff to Be Women's Chairman Mrs. Mearl Pottroff of Jasper township, vice chairman of the Women's Committee of the Carroll County Farm Bureau, was chosen for the office of chairman in 1958 at a meeting of the Wom- ,,JIL,, VIVIEN LEIGH: The Lords gave her the honk, but she won. only a third of the stage can be seen. Historically, it has hardly a leg to stand on. A bomb falling alongside it in 1943 lifted the roof and moved it several inches. Its famous "historical ceiling" is now made of plasterboard. And yet, until Miss Leigh won a stay of demolition so Parliament could think it over, Friends of the Historic Eyesore were crying "vandalism" and offered to chain themselves to the pillars of St. James. Miss Leigh threatened to quit the English^ stage if one stone was touched. Looking smart in a Balmain outfit of blue and gray silk, she set out on a protest march, ringing a handbell to call attention to her "Hands Off St. James" placard. And then she stormed the House of Lords and got the hook, so to speak. Even her husband,. Sir Laurence, was shocked. Wins Reprieve Undaunted, she showed up at the Housing Ministrv three weeks later (wearing a black eye-pach to cover an insect bite) and won a reprieve. American millionaires, it seems, are ready to ante up to save St. James. Despite its decrepit state, St. James does have some heady American associations. The late Ruth Draper, who held audiences spellbound with her monologues hero as recently as a year ago, was "deeply sensitive" to the theatre's "warm and intimate atmosphere," her secretary told the Times. And American novelist Henry James remembered it as the scene of "the most horrible ordeal of my life." The occasion was 1895 opening of his play, "Guy Dom- yille." James was too nervous to sit in the first-night audience, and was unaware when he finally appealed for the curtain calls that his play had been hissed and booed from the beginning to end. "when he walked onstage expecting an ovation, he got "the bird" full in the face from an "ill-disposed, vicious brutish gallery," as he described it. It was probably even worse than being thrown out of the House of Lords. en's Committee, Tuesday afternoon, in the Farm Bureau building. Mrs. Otto Grundmeier of Arcadia township was named as the new vice chairman and Mrs. Lowell Scheisman, Sheridan township, publicity chairman.
