The alleys have been thoroly overhauled
and the walls have been completely
renovated. It is expected that several
bowling clubs will be organized soon.
For real novelty and wholesome amuse
ment, the animated cartoons that are
always one of the many distinctive
features of Lyman H. Howe's Travel
Festival, are in a class by themselves.
Nothing like them may be seen else
where as they are conceived and executed
exclusively for Mr. Howe by his own
staff of artists who do nothing else.
They invariably afford comedy—real
comedy, too—that is in diverting con
trast to the more dignified views of
mountains, cities, and seas. In the
new program that will be presented at
the Turner Theatre on next Monday
evening they will add more gayety than
ever to the joys of "traveling with
Howe". They have a "punch" all their
own which "gets across" to young
and old alike. It is claimed for these
new extravaganzas that they are more
ingenious than any Mr. Howe has
presented hitherto. The travesties of
the serious subjects are of the most
amusing nature imaginable. They are
a revelation of the tricks photography
can play at the expense of vision and
human perception, and the results
achieved would indicate that several
senses need to be added to those now
classified as the five special senses.
