'Gabrielle Ray said, 'I am always dancing; I love it! When I don't dance, I sing. What else is there to do?'

Miss Gabrielle Ray, “The Prettiest Girl in England

Is to Wed Mr Eric Loder

Mr Eric Loder, son of Mr Alfred Loder, and nephew of Major Eustace Loder, has become engaged to Miss Gabrielle Ray, the musical comedy actress (says the Paris correspondent of the New York Herald).

Mr Loder, who is staying at the Hotel Meurice, confirmed the news of his engagement.

Miss Ray, when seen later, also smiling confirmed the news, but said she would prefer to make no statement for publication.

Miss Ray is said to be the prettiest girl in England.

Miss Ray is London’s daintiest dancer, “Fond of acting,” said the interviewer. “I’m just mad on it,” was the reply. She is even more attached to dancing. “I’ve got a big gramophone at home,” she says, “and when I’m alone I turn on the music – make it play any old thing – it does not matter what – and dance all to myself.

Miss Ray is petite and slight, and bubbling over with good spirits. She never walks – she always dances along – even in private life.

It was suggested that musical comedy audiences were chiefly ladies who come to see the frocks. “Oh,” said Miss Ray plaintively, “Don’t you think just a few must like to come and see the pretty girls and dancing.”
