SONG AND TWO

ANTHEMS

 

Theatres Agree

to Request

CANBERRA, Monday. - The song, "Advance, Australia Fair,"

as well as the British and United States' National Anthems, will be played in most Australian pic- ture theatres, as a result of re- cent discussions between the Minister for Information, Mr. Calwell, and representatives of motion picture interests.

Mr. Calwell conferred with the chair-   man of Greater Union Theatres Pty., Ltd., Mr. N. B. Rydge, and later the Motion Picture Exhibitors' Association of New South Wales carried a resolu- tion requesting all the independent theatres to play "Advance, Australia

Fair."  

The Department of Information an- nounced to-day that Mr. Rydge, the managing director of Hoyts Theatres, Ltd., Mr. Ernest Turnbull, and the managing director of Metro-Goldwyn Pty., Ltd., Mr. N. B. Freeman, had agreed to have it played in all their theatres.
