Mutual Gets Two Broadway Stars Chief Executive of Arizona Seen in "A Western Gov ernor's Hunmanity." ? Governor Hunt, of Arizona, the man with a heart which Is so much more human than which It was ever supposed a politician's might ever be, has become a motion picture de votee and starts right off on his ca reer before the camera with a bang, good big and generous. Becently the powers that be of the western branch of the l.,ubln Manu facturing Company had under con sideration the production of a three reel feature, which called for an Im personation of Governor Hunt.

The result is the debut of a new motion picture player so lest than the governor himself, and in the Lubln release of Novem ber 3, "A Western Governor's Hu manity," the governor of Arizona is portrayed by Governor Hunt, of Arizona.
