"But about the movies," reminded
the interviewer, regardful of a duty
"Ah, yes, the movies. When they
first proposed them to me I was scar

finally was convinced. Everything in
the movies is twisty ways for the stage

difficult thing to me has been the
work on the streets. Of course, I am
used to acting before people but in the

"The Tourist" promises hot only to j
be a great success from a histrionic i
p y ' . ' ' . ' ' ' ' ' ' ,i
and musical standpoint but from a
social standpoint as well. The cast
includes nearly all the best singers
in Honolulu, as well as several who
have made reputations in the line of
acting, and all are people well known
to the community.
The idea in the production of "The
Tourist" is to help make Carnival
week a huge success. The three per
formances will help fill up the week
and give visitors to the city some
thing to do to amuse themselves.
The name of the play is certain to
attract them and they will go to see
what Honolulu has to say about the
tourist. Incidentally, the production
of th operetta will help the carnival
committee in a financial way.

have consented to take part, and also
