TRACTIONS AT THE
FIRST TIME HERE
He is One of the Foremost Ly
ceum and Chautauqua At
tractions, of Today
Among tnc principal drawing cards
at tho Music Festival, which is to be
held at The Anderson theatre March
17-19 will be Mr. William Sterling
Battis, universally recognized as one
of the world's leading interpreters of
Mr. Battis is au actor who thinks
-he is a student who reads, und he
ls a thinker who acts-a rare com
bination. Ho will be one of the main
attractions at Anderson's first Musi
cal Festival, at Anderdon Theatre,
March 17-19 next.
The importance ot self-education
has not been fully realized. Schools
are but reception rooms to the great
Academy of Lifo. In school we ure
shown-or ought to be-how to use
the tools lu that greater school-tho
world. Books are these tools. It is
but naturul wc should have life; it
is our inherent right and province;
but to obtain it we must reach out
and take it, and draw from our sur
roundings the true meaning of life.
Boona are thc tools enablinc to do
this. Tools are of but little value if
kept In a glass case. Books are of no
value if selected that their bindings
may match the library carpet.
As a man is estimated by the friends
he associates with, so does the selec
tion of books reveal a man's char
acter-his mental and moral attitude.
Books are ever ready to hold con
verse with us; ever reauy to instruct
and entertain us, and are of value in
proportion as the knowledge ga. I ad
in the association.
People like to be either interested
or amused, sometimes both, but al
ways interested. To hold an audience
one muf-t interest them. Miny years'
experience on he platform has enabled
Mr. Battis to develop a repertoire from
the works of Charles Dickens, replete
with interest and amusement, likewise
Instruction. Anderson people will for
the first time have an opportunity to
catch a real glimpse of what the real
Dickens is when Mr. Battis comes
here during the MUIscal Festival, no
one should fail to see and hear him.
He is generally if not universally rec
ognized as the world's leading inter
preter of Dickens. '
Mr. Battis knew the stage ?om an
earlier experience. Ho made his de
but at the old McVicker's theatre
In Chicago, on the back of Joseph Jef
ferson in "Rip Van Winkle," later
playing with Clara Morris and Jame?
O'Neill in "Article 47." His stage ex
perience covered a wide Held. He re
ceived his first inspiration for dram
atic reading from Alfred P. Burbank,
who was, In his day., one of the most
popular readers in the country.
His early training and strenuous
experiences have developed a master
ful stage presence and a very remark
able voice; of groat range, perfect
In Its flexibility, carrying power and
quality. He is in absolute control ot
this power of express bis every emo
tion; every shade of thought ts tn1
perfect sympathetic obedience to his
Mr. Battis ls ono of the foremost
lyceum and chautauqua attractions tn
this country, having appeared pu most
of the noted course and assembly
To be an impersonator one must
possess all the talent of a> well-round
ed character actor. Mr. Battis has
the talent, and the stronger tba char
acter the better suited lt ls to Ms
ability. He intensifi?e without car
icaturing-something the dealers . in
strong character I talion do not always
make note of. This makes Mri Bat
tis particularly successful in the de
lineation of Dickens' characters, The
contrast in his personages is so mark
ed, and yet the volco, fi?e, action and
mannerisms are atl'so in keeping with
each character, that the story ls
blended into a smooth, well-balanced
whole and each individual takes his
place and plays his part as though
there was a full company of players.
A Dickens story is always difficult,
to monologize. There Is so much ma
terial. Hitit the average arranger soon
linds himself in a deep sea of literary
confusion. Mr. Battis hau evolved out
ui "NICUOIHS Nickeiby"-ii the aud
ience ot anywhere is to come in for
consideration, and as it pays the
money, it surely deserves recognition
-the" best Dickens monologue I have
heard. He takes a thread of the story,
patches it together and follows lt to
a conclusion. He does not ask an
audience to read up in order to under
stand. Ile only asks it to listen.
This is as it should be. The man
who goes before a well-read, literary
audience and makes it appreciate
Dickens ls not half the artist as is the
man who meets an audience unac-'
quainted with the master novelist, and
sends that audience home with a de
sire to re. d every volume.
As great as is Mr. Battis" work, it
should be remembered that he is only
one of ?nany attractions here during
the Musical Festival.
