Allen's' Jazz Band Go
Home This Evening
Jackie Allen's Jazz Rand is re
turning to Honolulu this evening.
After figuring the heavy expense

probable returns from the dance

cancel these engagements and re

appreciation for the many courte
sies accorded them, and to state
that they have thoroughly enjoyed
their trip to Kauai and hope to re
turn some time when conditions
are more favorable.
The Garden Island wishes to
assure the boys that Kauai most
assuredly has enjoyed their most
excellent music and will be glad to
ive them come again.
