Excerpt from Olga Nethersole

Iss Olga Nethersole is known to the world as an actress: had she not chos en the stage as the field for her endeavor, she would have been a physician. After all these years of success in the limelight of the theatre, she frequently regrets her choice of the two professions and seeks consolation in the fact that she recognizes a kinship between the two. The surgeon wields the knife and relieves pain. The physician probes into suffering and applies the balm. The actress may not find the weaknesses of the flesh; but she probes into souls, paints them with bold impression istic colors upon the canvas of the stage. She turns the rays of sunshine upon the cancers of sin and points the road to moral recovery and intellectual awakening to those about her. Thus from the commencement of her career as an actress, Miss Nethersole has felt that shehad a great moral and humane mission as well as an artistic ideal to attain. She has con stantly sought out plays from the brain-markets of the world, that dealt with the great problems of life. First of all, she wanted plays that made people think. Her motive in so doing has been frequently misunderstood and malign ed. She has even suffered the indignity of arrest and public trial for her decisive and unwavering stand for her artistic and moral ideal. Years pass, however, and time is the balm for the distress caused by such epoch marking hours in a life. A calm and sweet repose comes one day to those who have at some critical period of life taken a firm stand for right, against seemingly overwhelming opposition. Miss Nethersole is to-day basking in that repose. She has not only recovered her peace of mind and proved the lie to the charges once made against her, but has multi plied her admirers and advocates a hundred fold. Once she was misunderstood, and the great public which patronizes the theatre and follows its evolution, was in the dark as to the real position of this remarkable woman who had divided the camp into positive and distinct factions. Right prevails upon the theatre stage, as elsewhere. Such a luminous orbwas certain sooner or later to shed its rays into the remotest and darkest corners.
