HIGH SCHOOL PLAY
IS WELL RECEIVED
Thu stars in the High School
m play given at the Tip Top Theater
last Saturday night were Percy
Lydgate, Ernest Wedcineyer, Rich
ard Sloggett, Hichard Rice,
Thelina Hopper, Emily Sousa,
Martha Woltors and Katherine
t Fernandez. That is neither the
order nor the reverse order of
their importance in the play.
That is jnst the order in which
their names appeared in the cast
of characters. If we had to pick
out individual stars and place
them in rank) we would say, as
did Jenkins in thojilay, "I ob
jects." Hichard Rice first appeared on
the scene as Jenkins, a butler.
We don't know where Dick got the
practice but he certainly did make
the conventional, poker-backed
butler. If Ire ever runs out of a
job we will back him to the limit
as a first class butler.
Thelma Hopper, as Rebecca
Luke, ii maiden lady fond of cats,
demonstrated some very spinster
like attitudes and costumes. She
t played the difficult part of an
aunt that is trying" to befriend,
homeless cats and to keep her
young nephew and niece from "un
seemly conduct." ITer little pet
schemes finally got her into a
"peck of trouble", but sheenierged
with flying colors.
The third to make her appear
ance was Katherine Fernandez,
playing the part of I'atty, Miss
9 Rebecca's maid. Every one of
her appearances was good for a
laugh. Her spontaneous, irre
sistable dancing, her dislike of
Miss Rebecca's cats and her flirt
ation with the noble-hearted Jenk
i ins all "got by" in great shape.
The part of Katherine Rogers,
Miss Rebecca's niece, was admir
ably acted by Emily Sousa. She
made her susceptible young cous
in think that her best" girl friend
who was coming to see her was a
young man fond of boating. In
the mixup, caused by her little
deception, Katherine-Emily gave
the audience quite a number of
Katherine's cousin, and Miss
Rebecca's nephew was Philip Ray
son, acted by Percy Lydgate,
Fond of yachting, intolerant of
his aunt's eats and willing to be a
good fellow to his cousin's sup
posed fiancee, Philip-Percy had
his audience with him at all
times, even when he fell in love
with the mysterious "Mr. Bob."
t Mr. Bob, him or herself, was
Martha Wolters. She played with
considerable skill the part of a
lively young lady, and her win
ning of a yacht race won Philip
Rayson's yacht, with his heart
thrown in lor good measure.
Ernest Wedenieyer, as Robert
Brown, a clerk of a law firm,
coming down to Miss Rebecca's
house with important papers, was
mistaken for Mr. Bob, Philip Ray
son, another Mr. Brown, and for
Ned Saunders. The predica
ments he was thrown into, the
numerous lunches he ate, his im
prisonment in ji spare bed room
and his final victorious exit were
.all acted in most approved style.
Last and not least, Richard
Sloggett played in a very natural,
free and easy manner the part of
Ned Saunders, Philip Rayson's
chum. llis capture of the flee
ing Brown brought him into prom
inance and into the good will of
the young ladies, much to his
The whole play was breezy, full
of good fun and excitement. The
cast selected played their parts
as though they were born in the
stations played. The students
and their coach, Miss Underbill,
are certainly to be congratulated
upon their efforts.
Prececding the play were two
folk dances, one Danish and one
Japanese. Dancing in the form
er were Chow Moi Chang, Sueno
Fukushima, Eileen Carter, Mabel
Cliong, Lily Aki, Julia Rodrigues,
Zina Kilowano, Rose Goodman,
Sophia Vierra, Frances .Tardin,
Rena Fernandez and Sarah Tseu.
The Japanese dance was beauti
fully given by Masako Matsuino

John II. Cuinmings, a resident
of Kapaa since childhood, died at
Wenlia last Saturday evening, al
ter a short ilness, suffering from
liver trouble, lie is survived by
a wife and several children.
The U. S. Engineers at Niunialu
staged a concert and dance at
Kapaa Uall on Saturday evening,
but due to a counter attraction in
the Hawaiian Hall and the High
School play at Lihue, the atten
dance was rather disappointing.
One of the biggest crowds that
have ever witnessed a moving pict
ure here jammed into the local
theatre on Sunday evening to see
that much advertised spectacle
"120 Thousand Leagues Under the
Sea." Barring inconveniences
caused by the jam, the picture was
worth seeing, though.
Next Sunday will witness the
opening of the 1921 baseball sea
son here. 'Talking" Tilly and
liis clan from McBryde will be
our guests and although it be
hooves us as hosts to give visitors
a good time, so that they may re
turn home "with malice toward
none", we will nevertheless en
deavor to lower their colors in
the season's first encounter.
K. lida, local vegetable vender,
was found dead with a large cut
on liis head on the Kapahi road
on Thursday morning. He was
taken to the Kealia Hospital
where an autopsy was' performed.
The deceased was 59 years old
and it is believed that he had
stumbled over some object in the
road and in falling struck his
bead on some sharp instrument,
which resulted in bis death.

Two other attempted robberies
were reported to the police on
Sunday evening. An attempt
was made to roll the neinie resi

scared away by the occupants.
Three revolver shots were fired

MACHINERY CUMING MUCH INTEREST
With from 50 to SO men a day
working on the project, the work
on the new Nawiliwili harbor is
progressing very' rsfpidly. The
big gangs of men busy evei;y day
give very much the appearance of
armies of ants carrying away
loads of food. These men are
moving dirt and rocks in place of
(lie food though.
Mr. Morris, superintendent of
the work, reports that two big
cranes are to leave Baltimore
May 11th for this work. One of
these cranes is a monster, having
a carrving.power of :5 tons. The
other is not a flivver either. It
can carry 15 tons at a load. A
l(!-ton Davenport engine is also
on its way out here and is expect
ed in Honolulu any day now.
This engine will be used exclus
ively for work on the new harbor.
The present plans call for a
basin 1000 feet long and about (100
feet wide. It is to be approxi
mately ,10 feet deep. That means
that such a boat as the Lurline
could sail up to the Nawiliwili
dock, empty its cargo, reload and
turn around in the fill, without
needing a tug to pull it out back
wards, as is often done. It will
be a great day for Kauai when
this work is finished.
goy. McCarthy will
stay ox tiif. job
Last February Gov. Charles J.
McCarthy sent in his resignation,
to take effect May first. It has
since been announced that he was
to go to Washington as a perm
anent representative of the Hono
lulu Chamber of Commerce.

PUUKAPELE PARK CAMP
There will be a meeting of the
board of managers of Puukapele

to the matter of extending the
boundary lines of the park. The

will take in some very wonderful
The general public is invited to
be present at this. meeting, espec
ially those who desire to take up
a camp site. The board will be
on the ground and can approve
the selections made without delay.
The present plan is to go up to
the park Friday evening, spending
the night around a camp fire, thus
having the whole of the 21st to
spend on the ground. The board
of managers of the park are; W.
F. Sanborn, J. II. Moragne, Dr. A.
II. Waterhouse, E. M. Cheatham,
and Dr. W. T. Dunn.
At a meeting of the board of
managers held last July it was
decided to let individuals select
their own camp sites, subject to
the approval of the managers.
This is a gnat improvement over
the former method of having to
take what was offered or choosing
a lot according to survey.

Board of Managers of Puukapele

Supervisors at their meeting last
