STREET STALLS: TWO I ASPECTS. With the coming of the soldiers' barrows, the open-air market has, in Swansea, partially emerged from the realm of speculation and theory. On the barrows, laden with applet, pears, and garden produce, were lurid pesters declaring that they constituted to Profiteering,' j and lr. Francis, the secretary of the D. and D. S. and S. Y. de' lare- that though goods were hought of the ordinary wholesale merchants, at ordinary cost prices, they could yet be sold, taking things all round. ( at per cent. less than usual market prices. A D. and I). S. and S. F. stall was hired in the market itself, and the customary os. fid. paid for it, and yet they could sell cheaper than the others. I At the first blush, this reform ¡ movement can but be regarded with most grateful feelings, especially by the bard-pressed housewife, who finds that her husband's wages, though doubled, are really-when tried by the only infallible test of wages quality, namely, the purchase ?f nec?ssarY commodities not worth so much to her n?.th?ctd half-pay. Now, money has bcen ￼ ￼ nitic l i fitrtj'iei, found to go v'?ry much further at the D. and D. S. and S. F. stall or barrow than even on the other mar- I ket stalls, not to speak of the elite shops where the customer pays, not alone for the fruit and vegetables, but for high rentals, for the ele- gances -and the respectabilities a.nd the honour of being among the. select, and away from the common J rush where low price is a. first con- sideration, and quality second. In this patronisation of the bar- row there is also the touch of sen- timent which makes all classes kin. Profits of these barrows go, not to the individual maker of m(Inev or less-bat to the Benevolent Fund, than which there is no more deserving voluntary fund in existence. We- hear of aj well-known lady who buys 281b?. of potatoes, cabbages, carrots, par- snips, turnips and fruit "just "o encourage the hawker, and of the owner of an allotment who enthu- siastically offers the whole of his j I produce" for the fetching." Thus as many people as eight on the bar- rows or special stall, net only fill their baskets cheaply, but also en- joy the additional thrill of feeling good. Thus "classes" unite, ar- tificial distinction melting in the glow of human sympathy. Indeed, it may well be, that in the ultimate analysis the real benefit of the D. and D. S. and S. F. open-air market is, not so much that of cheapening goods, or knocking off their perches the middle man and the i-)rofiteer,-a.s in bringing people together in the double bond of per- sonal interest and social well-being. The stalls are avowedly an-ex- periment. Promoters want to find out if, and where, "profiteering exists, which Is a problem of some complexity, it having been con- clusively proved in several instances lately that the fortress of the enemv is by no means necessarily the spot where highest prices rule. Mr. Francis, who can scarcely be re- garded as an expert buyer, says he was able to purchase a quantity of excellent apples at a cost which worked out to less than per lb. After making all allowances, such as for carriage, and loss on weight rendered necessary by the enstant turn of the scales (which, with large fruit, is a ponderous item, and, in the absence of due care, may easily bring the amateur dealer to grief.) Mr. Francis says he finds that his men can sell for 3d. that, which has been costing Od. Every- body—buyer and seller, is happy and content, and the temptation is strong to throw up caps and shout, "Long live the open-air riiarket There is, however, another side to the picture which, if the new venture becomes a. comprehensive one—which is not likely—might create a situation more difficult and less amenable than those of high prices or even the occasional emer- gence of the real "profiteer." It must not be forgotten that the man with the barrow pays no rent, the stall-holder no rates and taxes (that is. as merchant). The D. and D. S. and S. F. have no overhead charges to meet, no shop to keep going on dull days. It can close down im- I mediately if the market takes an unfavourable turn. 2s"0t s0 with the ordinary tradesmen. who, though at charges which are higher and which may be regarded as ex- horbitant, have, up to the present, provided us with these nccessitie". Were open-air 111nrk!LlS H.PLCdigiOU"JI and a general success, he would go under, and what would happen then? Just this: that tIle rest of us, in one way or another, would have to keep him. The assumption that the ordinary dealer, in ordinary conditions, can do what trie 1). and D. S. and S. r. dries in conditions that are special, is a fallacy. It :.s only the margin of unfair profit, if any, that we should expect him to 1 sacrifice.
WELSH DRAMA. I Three Short Plays. In Mis? Bronwen Ann WilHam-p. the Llanelli player.- have discovered a genuine comic actress. The play in rrhich .she ap- peared last night, Y iiyor," proved to he a piece of genre comedy with good moments, out: tedious and loosely eon- strncted. It needed compression, and the character-drawing of the men was vague and unrealised. BJt Williams's ren- | dcring- of Mari, the witty, gopsiping, efficipnt housewife, was a creation. Through her acting we could understand what this arch middle-aged lady had l>ecn as a young girl, and a* a nv,-h- wedded wife. She hod been pretty, a honiely vir- tuous coquette. Even in her comfortable, round maturity she could look at men humorously, some mischief and ^pcll. re- maining in her glances. She had been happy among men, could talk the talk of men, and yet. had often surely touched with thrilling fingers." As a girl 'lie miyht have been the maid of Mere-3itVs Love in a Valley," or the Henna of Ceiriog's Alun fa hon." There was all this in Mj Wiliiams's acting, and a hoppy content in her own wit and smiie, a way of making a country shavl seem even on elderly shoulders an all too fpmi- nine garment. I think we all fell in love with her. To put- "Ble Ma Fa" and No-.on () Fari ng on the sumo platform was at least to n. useful moral. A play, whatever else it have or have not, must have an ide). It must show thought. A mere nrlut of emotion has nothing dramatic about it. Now Ble Ma Fa has an excellent dromaiic idea. 4. collier, serious young agnostic, has bepn killed in a mine accident. Hi. widow is a chapel member, and has ac- cepted the chapel doctrine that a profes- sion of belief is the only qualification for eternal bliss. The death of her husband robs her cf her faith, and to the neigh- bours and the chapel officers who visit her die puts the repeated question, Where do you think he is now;- 0> The grim answer of an unimaginative neighbour. He's in his coffin in the next room," is the best moment pi the play. But the author's purpose is to raise this widow's chair by the fire of a dark kitchen into a tribunal seat, before which the cold be- lievers. with their definite unemotional dogmas, come, are probed, shuffle in un- ease, have the armour of their creed pierced and torn, and pass away, them- selves bruised and shamed. It is a £ ood dramatic theme—-horribly spoilt. 1 liked Maggie Lloyd's interpreta- tion of the widow. Her Margcd was a rather weak-minded, hysterical woman, a little affected in her grief. The dramatic idea, the opposition of this woman to the rigid dogma of the deacon, came sharp- oQuNl from such acting. Noson o Farrug is an attempt at a pla.y without ideas. The only problem the writer eeems to have considered 's how I far a cough and silence niav lJe dramatic and even tragic. A little thought woulo have saved him from writing the piny. A cough is not artistically dramatic at all; silence is only dramatic when it is a point beyond speech, a single critical pause in a surge of dialogue. Continuous cough- ing and long silences only make a play painful acd im becile. Lat night there wajs a, pathetic attempt by the audience to foster a sympathetic mood for the plav. A few sane, healthy folk tittered uncom- fortably. But for the sanity of our young stage .let ii, hope there will be no more of U Noson o I arruK." One reflection remains with me. Our Welsh drama, we are told, is peasant and village drama. And that is entirely good. Our dramatists' intention to describe only the life of the folk is quite justifiable. But I suspect that they fall short of their de- sign and of the truth about peasant life. All the plays we have ae«n so far describe, and rather idyllienlly describe, village manners. But village life means more than manners." It includes memories and traditions and song and even dance ?in(i mummery. Tilings and pws&nt drama, if it would tell the round truth, mu?t include romance, the Iabinogion, the monastery, witchcraft, fairyland, and all the ancient playgrounds of men. Let I us widen our field. J. S. LEWIS. i

"POppy" AT THE ROYAL. I The "Poppy," a film adaptation of CyntJhia Stockley's charming novel of that name, will be the leading feature in the Theatre Royal programme for the latter part of the week. It is a beautiful Gauiiiont production with perhaps the most unconventional love story that has ever been told. The outstanding fetaure is the delightful acting of Norma Talmadge as Poppy Destin, whilst the superb setting of the production and the faultless photography go to make the work one of the best that has been screened for some timo I )'a?t. and should he seen by all lovers of ?cw! nicturp?.' There will be other very i interesting photoplays. "N
