AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Miss Paulette McDonagh took as her theme the story of a young man's love and the opposition that was born in the breast of his father when he learnt that the lady in question was a professional dancer. The lady rejected her suitor, however, when she found that her prospective father in law, who was a "millionaire" (another American touch, by the way), would cut off his son without even the proverbial shilling. She accepted instead a cheque which was apparently made out for £300. This should have cured Barry Manton of his penchant for dancing girls: but it did not. He first went to the dogs, then became a hero of fisticuffs in a low dive in Pyrmont, or the Rocks area, in defence of the professional dancer of the place who had attracted the favourable notice of the proprietor. This won for him the lady's heart, though he did not know it. They joined forces, so to speak, became a mutual protection society of two by marriage. They each learned to love the other more than life itself but as neither disclosed the fact much happened to mar their happiness.'


'Those Who Love', Brisbane Courier, 15 March 1927, p.18.
