A personal anecdote of an experience the speaker had at a meeting of the Drama League some few years ago. The speaker's great belief in education through drama, and his firm conviction that the theatre is the greatest educational force there is, seconded only by the great daily press. What the theatre hopes to do. What the theatre can teach us. The hope that when this war is ended, those who have done so much for the Empire are all going to come forward and say, "We have done as much as you have, and by Jove we are going to have something to say about it." The great mistake that those men who have fought and succeeded have not been consulted about the big things in London. The speaker's part in arresting James Dumba. The address concludes with lines from W.A. Henley's poem "England, My England."
