The camera you'll find very few ukeleles in the work was in charge of Clyde De Vinna, the chap who was up here with Van Dyke photographing THE ESKIMO. DeVinna admitted to me that he felt BIRD OF PARADISE was one of the finest, things lie had ever done. Here are a few of the interesting things he told me about Hawaii. until then, When Captain Gook, an English- Toodle-Doo. man, discovered the Islands, he and • his white sailors were worshipped Tne EMPRESS. as gods.

To the Citizens of Fairbanks: Summer is here now, and we school kids know it. When summer comes winter goes, and when winter goes so does the ice. We all, both old and young, remember what good times we had on that skating rink which the Elks Lodge, N. C. Co., F. E. Co. and others so generously furnished for us. But with summer here and school just out, we kids wonder Many natives are still so super- i """", ""' "* g ° ing to d ° <«„„.. «_* ._, .,. . j ourselves. What can we do that stitious that certain medicine men can cause the mto waste away and | is good for us? die, simply by so-called prayer! Now let's get back to the picture . . so far as camera work is concerned THE BIRD OF PARADISE is a masterpiece. In production, BIRD OF PARADISE was a money spender. No dollars were pinched. For one of the spectacular MATING dances, an entire village was hired . . all its occupants, men, women, babies, goats and dogs. Quite a fascinating dance this Mating Dance there may be "some who may term this dance as being vulgar . . but then again, many of the world's nearest heaith- pbce of recreation is Harding Lake and that is too far for anyone to walk to. There is driving, but that gets tiresome; there is also fishing, but one can't do that everyday. What Fairbanks town needs besides a good school is a good tennis court for her younger generation. Tennis is a popular, healthful game, one that old and young can participate in. We want a satisfactory tennis court which need not be an expensive one. Anchorage has three, why can't Fairbanks have one? Most any kind will do, but do something to keep us employed. • | -- "-""-^*^ J6 LV B-ccp us employe* greatest masterpieces are vulgar in pleasant and healthful past
