Tells Entire' World That His Father
Was Drunkard. Frank
London—George Bernard Shaw,
with his customary frankness, in
the preface to a new edition of his
works tells the world that his fath
er was a drinker and that in the
days of his early youth his family
suffered social ostracism because of
his father’s habits.
‘•Fortunately or unfortunately, (it
all depends upon how you look at
it)” Shaw says, all of the doors of
society were closed to his family.
The elder Shaw, it seems, was not
a convivial .drinker but one wracked
with shame and remorse when in
his cups and after a mild fit he be
came a teetotaler—like his famous
son always has been—but too late
to save the family status.
‘■If you cannot get rid of the fam
ily skeleton you may still make it
dance," says Shaw in revealing
passages which seek to explain his
shyness in breaking into the lime
light when he first arrived in Lon
don many years ago.
