CAPTAIN BRUCE BAIRNSFATHER
Originator of the cartoon characters, Old Bill, Bert, and Alf, and co
author of "The Better 'Ole," the war play at the National this week,
which features the same triumvirate in the flesh.
Captain Bairnsfather is a true "war baby" as far as art goes,
at least because up to the time of the war he was merely a young
engineer, about whose artistic abilities only his friends knew.
In the Bummer of 1914 he decided to leave his profession to try
drawing, and went to England, but he arrived just in time to fight
Germans instead of publishers.
In the field in France he drew straight from the war. The
London Bystander got hold of some of his drawings, published
them and made him famous overnight.
Bairnsfather, like Kipling, creator of another three musketeers,
was born in India, the son of a soldier and of a family of soldiers.
He was educated at the same school Kipling attended.
During the war, as captain in the Royal Yorkshire Regiment, he
served on every front from Ostend to Galicia until a shattered
ear drum placed him in "blighty," and when he recovered' the war
office decided his pen was mightier than his sword and kept
Ben "Welch, an old favorite with
Gayety patrons, and his capable bur
lesque company, returned to the Ninth
street playhouse this week with a
show that measures up to the best
that have been seen here this season.
Welch is equally at home in Hebrew
ti.d Italian characters, and the two
skits that make up the entertainment
plve him amph- opportunity to dis
play his versatility. The show opens
with a merry-go-round of laughter
and music bearing the title of "Izzl,
the Diamond King." while the closing
