THE MAUI NEWS, FRIDAY, DECEMBER 15, 1916.
AT THE THEATERS
Owing to the Increased demands on
the Normal school, funds have not
been available to meet them, yet I
venture to say the Normal school has
more effectively carried out its mis
sion than some of our higher institu
tions and at a far greater tax on its
teachers. From the governor's letter
to the school commissioners.
Elsewhere in the letter from which
the nbove quotation is made, the gov
ernor says: "Why not state the Issue
Why, also, should not the governor
state plainly which of "our higher in
stitutions" is not carrying out its mis
sions as effectively as the Normal
LABORERS AND THE BONUS
The effect of the big bonus paid out
to the plantation laborers of Kauai
only a few days ago has already
manifested itself in several ways.
First, the stores all over the island
report unprecedentedly large, daily,
cash receipts, the laborers throwing
their paper money around with the
abandon of the multi-millionaire and
experimenting in all sorts of luxuries
which they had hitherto thought could
be enjoyed only by "rich folks."
The second result of the financial
windfall has manifested itself in the
amount of drunkenness that has dev
eloped. Probably never in the history
of the island, even in the Christmas
holidays, have there been so many
instances of intoxication around Lihue
and neighboring towns as since this
bonus was paid to the laborers; and
we suppose the same condition of af
fairs has obtained all over Kauai.
The serious phase of the matter is
that the new-found wealth has sharp
ened in the minds of many laborers
(particularly Filipinos) the desire to
parade in fancy socks and neckties in
the city, and" has brought the long-wished-for
opportunity. Rumors have
reached us that there will be an ex
odus of them from Kauai by the next
steamers to Honolulu, and we suppose
that a similar condition of affairs will
obtain as to the other islands.
It seems a pity that some means
could not have been devised whereby
this bonus, or "present," to the labor
ers could have been held in trust and
paid to them in smaller amounts per
month. As it is most of the cane field
laborers are literally "rolling in" a
Wealth which they do not know what
to do with and the consequences may
be easily surmised. Garden Island.
Blue Blood and Red"
Another smashing Fox Film Corpor
ation feature comes to the Maul
heaters with the initial presen
tation of "Blue Blood and Red," which
introduces George Walsh and 1 Doris
Pawn, a new and handsome pair of
Fox stars, to local audiences.
A change of location is noted In the
setting of the scenes in this feature.
Red Gulch, Montana, and vicinity are
epicted for the purposes of the story,
something unusual for a Fox film. The
usual cowpuncher scenes are much in
evidence, as is the posse in search of
the hero whom they have mistaken for
a villavn. Then there Is the Inevitable
near-lynching in which the hero is al
most "sent over." But for the hero
ine it would have been "curtains" for
he heroine and the faithful "man"
who has followed the hero from his
macnificeent home in effete New York.
There should be sufficient action In
this film, provided it follows the story,
and Fox films usually do, to last the
most excacting for at least one large
evening. Of course, the hero and hero
ine understand each other admirably
and give a touch of romance to the
more strenuous ranch life as it is de
picted by the playwright and as It
possibly was when Judge Lynch held
The World's Great Snare"
Pauline Frederick has been seen at
the Maui theaters in "Bella Donna,"
Lvdia Gilmore," "The Spider,"
Sold," "Zaza," "Audrey" and "The
Moment Before," just to mention a
few of her most successful offerings
Com':ng week she will return in "The
World's Great Snare," and, according
to popular opinion, which at the Lib
erty is demonstrated by the size of
the house and the amount of the ap
plause, she scored the most decided
hit of her screen career.
"The World's Greatest Snare" is a
picturization of E. Phillips Oppen-
heim's story of the same name and
the picture is even stronger than the
story. It is intense in its dramatic
strength and its pictorial art is well
in advance of the ordinary photo-play.
Pauline Frederick is easily one of the
leading emotional actresses of the
screen and as Myra the dancer in the
popular cafe she is entrusted with a
role that is a credit to the artist ana
to which the artist does full credit.
Cafe life and the cabaret makes a
most entertaining pair of subjects for
the camera and the Famous Players
have taken full advantage of the op
portunity afforded. The film is one
that is assured of the greatest mea
sure of success.

Life is a conflict a battle of op
posing forces contending lor selfish
ends. But the bitterest clash of all
is the battle of hearts. Here are two
women, proud, spirited, beautiful, who
play with the lives of men as pawns
on a chess Doara, oniy to casi xnese
puppets aside when their dominant
purpose of revenge has been gained.
Within these women lies dormant the
soul-Bearing hate of years, and though
it costs the souls of men, vengeance
Is their only thought. The conflict of
mind, heart and wits makes a power
ful drama, tense in its realism. It
delineates a vivid picture of the ends
to which jealousy leads its slaves.

popular musical comedy favorite, con

Pennincton has caught all tne cnarm
and piquancy of the little dancer who
scandalizes her maidenly aunts and
sets her home village agog when she
brings her Broadway Ideals into the
community. But there is a lot of real
character and unswerving loyalty in
"SuBie," as she proves when she is put
to the test.
To make the interest of this para
mount Picture complete, there is a lover
a real one and another chap who
hopes to win Susie's love through his
money-bags, and an oia rascai wno
mistakes Susie for an unsophisticated
little darling until she convinces him
that it is emphatically otherwise.
