BUSINESS AND BORROWING
In a world whose activity has come
so largely to be of a business nature
there is a distinct need for the more
active participation of accomplished
financiers and industrialists in the
settlement of international affairs.
Indeed it is the opinion of many whose
statements cannot be entirely disre-
garded that most of the disturbances,
most of the unrest, andtmost of the
disputes among nations today are the
direct result of the attempts of states-
men to deal with matters of business
entirely beyond their comprehension.
Such in substance is the view of Sir.
George Paish who recently spoke herej
on "The World Economic and PoliticalI
Situation." It is his belief that
"statesmen imposed unwise reparation
demands on Germany 'under the hon-
est belief that Germany could pay'
them" and that "France borrowed
freely with sole reliance on Germany's
prompt payment." As a result France
is on the verge of financial chaos
which would involve the worl in the
greatest panic known to history.
-This is a discouraging picture. It
is not, however, far from fact. France,.
who before the war always stood in
the position of creditor, is now debtor
to an overwhelming degree. The
Freneh people during the war learned
from necessity the habit of borrowing.
Since that time, urged on by. states-
men who are in no sense businessmen,
they have continued the practice. The
work of reconstruction has been car-
ried on in a needlessly extravagant
fashion industries have been rebuilt
lyric over lamb-chops, and tearfully
romatic over umbrellas. The pouting,
the slight irony, the shocking frank-
ness, the sophisticated attention to
triffles and the sentimental insistance
on affectation were paraded in her
characterization: seriously, it was a
very nearly perfect piece of work,
full of talent and appreciation.
The other five in the cast, especial-
ly Miss Harwick as Delia and Mr.
Brown as the stray husband, were
equally interpreted--simply and nat-
urally. After all, the play is for thme
star: the other characters must be
little more than background for the
ridiculous temperament of the rtlicu-
loos Belinda, only artfully growing
plump and matronly.
The great George Jean has called
Milne and his plays half-portions; and
they are light, trivial if you wish. As
a matter of fact, he has only two really
distinguished, significant works-"The
Lucky One" and "Success"-both of
which were prompt failures on the
professional stage. His other pieces,
however, have become tremendous
box-office attractions, perhaps for two
In the first place, "Belinda", "Mr.
Pim Passes By", "Ariadne" and in its
opposite way "The Dover Road" are

a saint, a blessed patron to all actors,
especilly actresses, who have p'assed
an ingenue adolescence and must;turn
for their stardom to women ofs un-
certain age. Milne invariably m'akes
his leading lady charming and matron
with a vast store of wit and clever
repartee, who has just recently in-
clined to stoutness.
This is no inconsiderable patronage
to cater for. When you stop to con-
sider, nearly all the recognised artists
have passed their dangerous thirties:
Ethel Barrymore, Laura Hope Crews,
Blanche Bates, Margaret Anglin, Mrs.
Leslie Carter, Nance O'Neil-the list
is nearly endless-all must wear tulle
about their necks and artfully design
tl..ir gowns on slender lines. To
this majority a part like Belinda or
Ariadne is a port of refuge: their
managers fight for the author's favor.
Even more important is Milne's
skilful play on his audiences. His
leading men and women are not real-
istic-no one to-day is willing to see
a mirror of nature-but rather they
stand for the ideal we would all be.
There is no man that is not ridden
with the complex to be a gentleman,
a poised gentleman of the world, who
can match jungles-lions, to be melo-
dramatic-who can be equally suave
and blandly persuasive in the draw-
ing-room, who can turn gentle mots
