of this play.”
With her becoming sable and squir
rel coat wrapped about her slender
form and her dancing blue-gray eyas
radiating vivacity and spontaneity,
pretty Irene Dunne, who sings the
stellar role In “Irene,” the charming
musical comedy which has more
singable ’ tunes In It than any other
opera I've heard since "The Merry
Widow,’ told me the foregoing yes
terday when we were chatting about
her stage career.
"I’ve never sung any other part—
I’ve never been on the stage before—
and there never was anybody in my
entire family who had ever been on
the stage until I dared go—so that’s
my life story.”
If anyone should happen to ask you
how old pretty Irene Dunne is—and,
by the way, that is her real name—
I’d say about 19, and this is really'
true, and not according to the latest
interview style of making the heroine
of a story just 18 or younger, and
she's chucked full of personality,
debonnair and gay, just the ideal
type for the delightful heroine of Mr.

to play tiie role and asked for it.

MONTEREY—A muchly Ameri
canized city of about 110,000
population, with great smelters
and factories, but it is, of course,
Mexican after all, and is the sec
ond city of importance in Mexico.
She was founded in 1560 by the
early Spaniards. S?he sits upon a
lofty plateau, 2,318 feet above
sea level, and is completely sur
' rounded by mountains, one of
which, the “Cerro de la Silla”
(Saddle mountain), has an alti
tude of 4,149 feet,, the peak of
which is shaped exactly like a sad
dle, requiring no stretch of the
imagination, as is often the case
with some of our mountains in the
U. S. A. This mountain can be
seen upon entering Monterey and
from all parts of the city. The
“Cerro de las Mitras,” 3,618 feet
high, is the “Mountain of Mitres,”
' and is not quite so compelling to
the view as Saddle mountain, but
that piece of the “Bishop’s Vest
ments” is just as vivid to the av
erage vision. These might well
be termed the bluest of the blue
mountains, and they stand out
against the blue sky in marvel
ously clear atmosphere. The
“Bishops’ Palace” (now in ruins),
was built in 1872; the old ca
thedrals, the Plaza Mayo, the
Theatre and the Alameda are all
points of interest—the town in it
self is interesting and well worth
the visit. In Monterey is the fa
mous hotel, “Gran Ancira,” which
was used by revolutionists as their
headquarters, and still carries
marks of their occupancy. How
