Miss Risdon Revealed As An
Actress Of Diversified Talents

A good actress should be able to
play anything and everything, trag-
edy, comedy, and character parts
alike, in the opinion of Miss Elizabeth
Risdon, Dramatic Season star. And
that's exactly what Miss Risdon does
for only such a varied career could
make her the finished artist that she
As she came back stage for an in-
terview after her matinee perform-
ance in "The Brontes," Miss Risdon
seemed as natural and unaffected as
if she were not still wearing the paint
and wedding gown which she had
worn in the last scene in which she
Having started her stage career
when she was young, Miss Risdon has
been in the profession for thirty years.
She has no remembrance of any de-
cision to go on the stage, she just "al-
ways intended to" as she put it.
Miss Risdon still remembers the
first play in which she appeared.
"Gods In the Mountain" was the title,

and the young actress had a walk-on
part and one line to recite. Offering
the gods a bowl of fruit, Miss Risdon
was to say, "Oh ancient diety, par-
take, partake." Over-anxious to be a
success the then-inexperienced ac-
tress stuttered out, "tarpake, tarpake."
At this time she also had an oppor-
tunity to understudy the scream-part.
"I wanted a long time for something
to happen to the person that was to
give that scream, finally she did get
sick, and I got a chance to scream,
and did I let it rip," was Miss Risdon's
Since those early days, Miss Ris-
don has played every type of play -
Shakespeare, Shaw, O'Neill, all of
them. She prefers comedy to tragedy,
although whatever she- is playing at
the time is the thing that appeals to
her. "Comedy requires expert tech-
nique, and that is what I enjoy more
than anything. There is no such thing
as being 'carried away by your emo-
tions' in light comedy, it's all in know-

Silver Action
Will Be Sought
By President
Roosevelt Pr e p a re s His
Message To Be Sent To
Congress Soon
WASHINGTON, May 16. - P)--
President Roosevelt tonight wrote a
message for transmission to Congress
proposing silver legislation after he
had reached a general agreement on
principles with Senate silver advo-
It was reliably reported that a
unanimous agreement was reached
on a bill for enactment this session.
It was said that the President's
message would relate to the metallic
base behind the currency, including
both gold and silver.
The agreement was understood to
provide for a mandatory declaration
of policy that silver be included as a
part- of the metallic base of currenc.
The President's message will go to
Congress within a day or two. It will
review the steps taken heretofore in
regard to the currency and- the me-
tallic reserves and will make specific
recommendations on the next steps
the administration will propose for
improving the monetary system.
Discretion was expected to be left
with the President for the purchase
or the nationalization of silver.
Senator Alva B. Adams, Colorado
Democrat, said after the conference
that for all practical purposes a final
agreement had been reached for a
mandatory declaration of policy that
silver be acquired to achieve a mone-
tary base consisting of 25 per cent
silver and 75 per cent gold, and for
permissive nationalization of silver.
Adams said that the words 'author-
ized and directed" would be in the
policy declaration and that the only
discretionary powers would have to do
with the time and amount of silver
to be acquired at one time.
He said that the silver committee
would take up the agreement with
Democratic leaders, who have not
been attending the conferences, to get
"organization backing" behind the
new bill.
Silver certificates would be issued
for the silver purchased, he said, on
the basis of the present legal tender
value of the dollar, or the token
value of silver -- $1.29 an ounce.
