(1893-1930) UK politician and playwright who was in active service during World War One, and who may have been blackballed from The Reform Club by E M Forster, but seems otherwise unnoted. In his sf play, The Shingling of Jupiter: A Fantastic Play for Serious People in Three Acts (1924 chap), Major Smith, a Mysterious Stranger from the eponymous planet who is on a spying mission to Earth, upsets a segment of English society; but the heroine of the piece, after going there, finds life on Jupiter as silly as her own on Earth, to which she returns.
