Fannie Ward, an excellent actress
dt'scrvcdly popular here Is coming to
Maui on Saturday and Sunday night
with Jack Dean, in "The School For
llushands," a Faramount-Lasky pro
duction. Fannie Ward does her best
in crinolines and wigs, hut has an ex
cellent modern part here which starts
by promising to run parallel with a
dozen other "country mouse" wife
stories. It Is a little different, how
ever, enough so to promise an inter

"The Island Of Desire"
Maulites will undoubtedly remem
ber a story that appeared in a popular
magazine recently entitled "The Isl
and Of Desire," the author being J.
Allan Dunn, formerly a newspaper
man of this city. "The Island Of
Desire" abounds in local atmosphere
although there are several changes
from the published story.
It will be seen in Wailuku on Mon
One of the noticeable changes is in
the character of Henry Sayers, term
ed "a gin-soaked native" in the screen
version, but in the Btory a "haole"
newspaperman who was well known
in the Paradise of the Pacific during
the days of Dunn.
George Walsh, one of the most pop
ular of the William Fox stars, appears
in the leading role, that of Bruce Chal
mers. Opposite to this star appears
Margaret Gibson, the despicable char
acter of Henry Sayers is portrayed by
Ilerschel Mayall, while the balance of
the cast includes Anna Luther and

Coffins and General Hardware.
The story is a good one, dealing with
a search for a pearl lagoon in a
group of islands in the deep South
Seas. Chalmers, Sayers and Tuan
Yuck, a crafty Chinese, make the
voyage for the pearls. The Jewels do
not materialize but a love episode
does in which Chalmers wins out
against the plots of his evil compan
"The-Never-Do-Well," Rex Beach's
masterpiece, is more stirring and col
orful than any of his others. The
scenes are very timely laid in Pana
ma, and it contains even a greater,
more holding fascination than that of
his Alaskan tales.
The hero is Kirk Anthony, a college
graduate, a veteran football player,
and since graduation, the coach of
his university team. On the evening
following a great football victory, the
last of the season, Kirk and several
other men start out in New York to
celebrate. Late that night, after pass
ing through a series of curiously excit
ing incidents, he finds himself on ship
board, en route to Panama, and when
he awakes,, is without money and
During the voyage, Kirk becomes
acquainted with a woman a Mrs.
Stephen Cortlandt whom he learns
to admire very much. She is really a
diplomatic agent of great Influence.
One day, after his arrival in Pana
ma, and after passing through some
more hair-raising experiences, while
out hunting, he meets in a forest, how
ever, near one of the summer resi
dences of the rich Panamanians, a
Spanish girl, who is known to him
only as "Chiquita." He falls desperat
ely in love with her, and tries vainly
t o discover her identity.
The story of his making good, of his
winning of Chiquita, despite the
counter-plottings of Mrs. Cortland, of
the clearing of his name, and of the
final decisive intervention in Panama
nian affairs of old Darwin K. Anthony,
Id strongly engrossing and varied by
many richly humorous episodes. Chi
quita is by far the most charming
feminine character Rex Beach has
drawn, and Edith Cortlandt is an ex
ceedingly fascinaUng and convincing
type. Last, but not least, "The Never-Do-Well"
himself you have all read
the book now see him, enacted by
Wheeler Oakman, actually live before
you on the screen virile, magnetic,
run of fight in one mood humorous,
engaging, full of fun in the next. You
will always look back on an exceed
ingly pleasant and enjoyable evening.
Will be seen in Kahului on next Tues
day and in Wailukn on next Thursday.
