"FOR THE VALLEY ISLE FIRST" 22nd YEAR No. 1157 SEMI-WEEKLY MAUI NEWS, FRIDAY, APRIL 14, 1922. TRICE 5 CENTS I Wild West Show At Fair Grounds To Open Tonight Thrilling Programs Arranged And Railroad will Run Free Trains to Kahului For Sat urday Night Show. Jack Burroughs and his troop of star riders, including Vera McGinnis, one of the most dauntless and skill ful horsewomen of Western America, which means the world, and a score or more of the best riders and horse and cow handlers of Maui will stage three performances at the fair ground today and tomorrow. The first per formance will be this evening at 7:30. Tomorrow afternoon there will be a i second production with added attrac tions and some extra stunts that will please the young folk and tomorrow night at o'clock, the climax, the last show. Free special trains will be run to Kahului tomorrow evening by the Ka hului Railroad, it was decided last Tuesday afternoon. One train will leave Wailuku at 7 o'clock. The other leaves Haiku at 6:30 and will stop for passengers at all way stations. Return trains will be run both to Wai luku and East of Kahului after the show. Red Blooded Stunts It is the atmosphere of the plains and the hills, of the great outdoors, that lebds the first attractiveness to such a show as will be produced at the fair grounds tonight. There is a sense of freedom and bigness that attaches to it. There is the admiration one instinctively feels for fine horses and cattle and for the skill and gameness the riders show in the handling of them. Rearing, plunging, prancing, leap ing wildly bucking horses upon whose backs are perched daring riders are a feature of such shows. Gamely the rider strives to maintain his seat as his steed exercises every wile, trick end artifice to dislodge him from his perch. With' knees, and feet and legs the rider clings determined not to .

Against every trick of the wild horse must be di rected all the skill of the horseman. To the average person a steer is re garded as a big, ungainly lumbering brute. One does not connect with them thoughts of quickness and ac tion but it is easier to handle a frac tious horse than to remain on the back of a steer once he determines he will not be ridden and is his latent determination. He has tricks all his own that a horse does not know of and never tries. So the wild steer riding will be as interesting and as thrilling as the riding of bucking horses. Girls Will Race One feature added to the tomorrow program is the promise of a match race for five furlongs between horses ridden by Miss Vera McGinnes, the girl rider of the Burroughs company, and Miss Lorna von Tempsky. Miss von Tempsky has been seen in races nd sports on Maui frequently and she is considered the superior to many and the equal of most men riders of this island. A barrel race for horses ridden by the same riders is scheduled for tomorrow night. Fine Trick Riding Exhibitions of trick and fancy rid ing and skill in horsemanship will be staged by the various members of the Burroughs troop including Miss Mc Ginnis and the performances are such as to waken the admiration of all, as was the case at ten performances in Honolulu. There will also be an ex hibition of tricks by Texas Tommy, 0 high school horse. This steed is a temperamental chap, as fond of at tention and applause as a prima don na and his performances is as attrac tive to grown ups, almost, as to chil dren. Tomorrow afternoon Jack Bur roughs will do everythings he can to please the children. "I would rather," he says, "play to a crowd of children than any one else. They seem to en joy it so much. So all of us always do our best when the little folk are there. Advance sale of box seats is re ported as going well. General admis sion includes seats in the rear of the grand stand or other seats that have been erected and from any of them a full view of the performances can be had.
