Some familiar figures appeared in fi;ht!y altered c.-.;; C. W. Eart-lett's "Mother and Child" Is simpler -Market in India." which resembles 1 the work usually pern from his brush. D. Howard Hitchcock's 'Ap-proaeh'nz Yokohama' indicates that 1:" absorbed considerable Japanese atmosphere on hla recent tour, though he sees the Philippine land-sen pr In much the same soft blues, greens ard pinks as Hawaii.

Arthur Emerson pre: en's what nnnv observers pronounce the tirrst work he has yet dene, in the coin- treatment cf his 'Sunshine S?a." e-hiirley Russell's faithful likeness of Ellen Tree Williamson received honorable mention from her fellow exhibitors. Juanita Vitousek's revivaLs of the cM 1'iench flower print are much admired. The?e water color paint-ia:r. bofanlcallv correct, but arranged to meet the demands cf artistic composition, are very effective within their somewhat restricted field. The exhibition in general shows a predominant leaning to conservatism, with outstanding exceptions Bmonii which are some cf the most Interesting pictures in the &how. As one cnrrs the first room, at tl'ie left of the main door, the picture that claims attention first and most j-trikinciy is a notably strong portrait. "The Photographer," by F. Cordon Chad wick. Mr. Chad-wick's t'vo nudes also attract much attention: many visitors favor the larre study in yellow and oransre, though the oriental subject on the makal wall has more life and is more Interestingly posed. Mr. Chadwick's work as a whole is one of the most i.-rr revive features cf the exhibition. In tha waikikl gallery, attention is drawn ultimately to Ha?el Hart-man's "Hawaiian Octopus." a strikingly live and creative composition. la the cwa roor i the eye is at- I tracted first to Verna Tallman's "Old Womsn" ard -Gene Lyneh's Xanana Blossom," perhaps partly because both are large and bold in color and c';:: Despite the somewhat flat treatment, both stood up remarkably well when reproduced recently in black and white. ' I.K1 -e Tennent's viToroiuij' painted "Honoluiu Lei Girls." in her highly creative recent style of rx-perirncnt in color prd form rhythms, suffers from disadvantareons plac-i-.T. It appears to better effect in the r!.i. h lit hours, though it still cm,nftrntes theklue cf cne man j sh-.vs. Mrs. Tennent's work Is so hnhly original that It was much mors impressive when assembled in quantity in her recent exhibition, which enabled an adequate appreciation cf her color harmonies and the strong sweep of her intricate design. A. 55. MacLeod's "Preparing for the Luau," though authentically Hawaiian, and interesting as always, tills below his usual hiith standard cf execution. Perhaps it would have been improved had the somewhat crowded canvas been painted in Itrcer fpnee. Mr. MacLeod has treated the ssm? subject much more r ffcMvly in a lithograph which was sh-"-vn in the recent local print ex-htbit'.-m. End which won honors on the mainland. Another bright snot in all .three rtrrr.s is tha work cf Cyril Lerr.mon, very fresh and colorful if in somewhat po-teri,h manner. The exhibition, the fourth annual event of the association, demonstrates that Honolulu artists are f live end active and growing in achievement as well as In numbers. It should be an inspiration to the m and to their many admirers who thronged the academy on the open- 1 ing night of the show.

In most instances, Mrs. Jacques has made only 10 to 20 prints from each plate. There are comparatively few who produce color etchings and still fewer produce them successfully. Those interested in the handling of the medium will be especially interested. To those interested in the finished product, the fact' that the method does not assert itself will add value. Mrs. Jacques is a writer as well as a fine etcher. She founded the Chicago Society of Etchers more than 20 years ago and has cairied it on to its great success. E. P. F. Wood Carvings By Akamine Tosuke Wood carving by Akamine Tosuke, a barber at Alapal and Hotel Sts., is being exhibited in the children's wing at the Honolulu Academy of Arts. A Buddha, carved out of wood, and a large wooden tiger, are among the interesting pieces. The tools also are exhibited. The ingenuity of the artist, who has filed clown chisels and other common implements to serve his purposes, is a matter cf considerable ccm-ment. . . The tiger has attracted the interest cf many children and adults. It is a grotesque creature with an enormous mouth and it is said that if a headache sufferer puts his head in the mouth and the mouth snaps, the headache will be chased away. This type of animal is also said to have been used on certain festival occasions in encient times in Japan. As a work cf hand carving, it holds much interest. E. P. F. EXHIBITION NOTES Exhibitors at the opening V.'ed- S nesday mht voted the $50 prize to Lionel walden fcr his marine painting "In the-Path of the Sun." This is the largest picture in the exhibition. . . . Honorable mention was voted to Rhirley Russell for her excellent likeness of Ellen Tree Williamson, D. Howard Hitchcock for "Approaching Yokohama Dawn," and Gene Lynch for "Banana Blossom." c A portrait which won honorable mention at the 1830 annual exhibition at the Los Aneles museum is exhibited by Elizabeth B. McNaueh- n- whoseje Pic" w repro d" . Frank Ccnchee shows modern French influence in two ably executed small paintings. Julia Goldman's four water colors, described in this department last week, have a symbol. connotation in addition to their, composition values. A business man joined the exhibitors this year Sherwood M. Low-rey, with "Hawaiian Waters." Also two newspaper cartoonists Cloud B. Kinney cf Paia. Maui, with a conscientiously painted marine, and Nash Witten with a study entitled "Hoe liana." Mary Roberts shows some fresh and colorful flower psintinss. Yesuo Kubcki's "Youne I.Ian Making Akua." evidently a self portrait, is one cf the best things he has done. II. M. Luguiens. better known as an etcher, exhibits a pleasing Hawaiian landscape in oil. Helen I sen berg's "Waialeale" shows marked improvement, with' its strong suggestions cf mountain mass ard he i: lit. A. McPhaii's "Born Carrier of Burdens," if somewhat illustrative in manner, commands attention witrt its vivid color and driving weight of composition. . J. B. Freitas shows improvement hi his seascape. W. J. Love's "Ey the Gate" presents a p!ea.ant decorative pattern. N. Ycshida's two Japanese subjects are faithfully executed in almost photographic detail. Sculpture is more liberally represented this j-ear than at any time since the closing of the eld Academy cf Design. Sis pieces are shown, by Rosalie Young, Mrs. Eric Fcr.nell and Grace Green Guth-rid-re. senfed w;th groups by Patty Scratch, E. Loader and Nina Nash Cron. loting for the mast popular picture. Th3 re- u!t will b? knenvn when the exhibition ends.

At any event she discovered Kim's vices shortly after the honeymoon, and, since her conscience did net allow her to share thc-s-e vices.' she soon found herself being good alone. " Mary Faith discovered that her husband fhrted with everything feminine and under 40. She was painfully aware that he went a bit further than flirting with his secretary, the librarian, the druggist's assistant, and the wife of his law partner. She found that he cheated his law firm, but worst of all she became conscious that Kim was bored with her. Kim's boredom twice drove him to desertion once before the baby was bora, once after, and he returned only because he suffered attacks cf acute bronchitis and needed Mary Faith to nurse him. At the last desertion he entreated Mary Faith to divorce him but she refused on the ground jbat a divorce would damage his seal. She went back to her old position as Kim wouldn't give her any money unless she gave him a divorce, and the millionaire employer wanted to marry her, but she felt that she could never love anyone but Kim. At this critical period Kim came down with pneumonia and only Mary Faith and a trip to Arizona could save him. Mary Faith gives up her position, sheds tears of thankfulness (presumably for pneumonia), and begins to pack. "For her everything was all right then. Without any work in sight or any way of earning money, without any real plans for the future, with nothing but the promise of $200 railroad fare for herself and Kim and the baby, she still knew that everything would be ail right." The plot is trivial enough but the manner of writing is infinitely worse. For instance, we are informed that Mary Faith frequently borrowed "serious high-brow books" from the library because she wante 1 to educate herself to be a worth;? wife in case Kim ever achieved the heights. The author is as incapable of simplicity as of sophistication and the result of this deficiency is a distressing mixture of - th-i tawdry and the - simpering. R. lb M. Former Honolulan Exhibits On Coast The Monterey Peninsula Herald and the San Jose Mercury-Herald of recent date reproduce paintings bv Edith H. Heron, now of San Jose, who is remembered in Hono- j lulu as a former teacher here and on the Big Island. Miss Heron has been exhibiting recently at the state exhibit in Santa Cruz, sponsored by the Santa Cruz Art league, the show of the Carmel Art r r f-cciation at Carmel. and the California water color ex hibition in San Francisco.; ' A showing of 24 of her paintings will be given . at Gump s in San Francisco June 6 to IS, and she will have an entire room, with about 35 pictures, at the California Palace of the Legion of Honor early next year. Miss Heron taught at Hakalau in 1923, and conducted a class in pottery at the old Hawaiian Academy of Desicrn in Honolulu in the summer cf the same year, said to have been the first of its kind in the islands. Sir David Murray, Scottish artist, is quoted in the coast papers as praising her work for its design, draftsmanship, feeling for art and perception of natural charms, qualities which are evident in the pictures reproduced. Honolulu Poems In Two Anthologies Dr. Franklin P. Davis' thirteenth annual anthology of newspaper verse wiH contain several poems from The Star-Bulletin. Among those requested by him for republication were verses by May Rest-arick, Ecrta Metzger and Clifford Gessler. Three students of McKinley high school are represented in "Younger Poets." an antholoey of verse by children, edited by Nellie B. Sergent and published by D. Appleton & Co., New York. The young poets are Elsie Goto, Frances Nelson and Mary Worcester, all of whom have treated Hawaiian themes. VERSE MAGAZINES': 1 f r The fourth number of College Verse, organ of the College Poetry Society of America, continues to disclose more technique than original thought, as is to be expected cf collegians. There is something appealing about these utterances of youth. Even when they echo and they do so less and less the college poets are writing better verse today than was written in colleges only a few years ago. There is nothing in the February number as good, however, as Lillian V. Inke's "Time Is a Dream" in D-'O January issue. The winter number cf The Harp, now published at Augusta, Kan., is a memorial to Sr.ra Wallace, former pufclif her of the mr.eazinc, who died in October, ltTO. It cent? ins severs 1 elecie-e poems by her daughter and friends.

Haydn's Symphony in E Flat major will be -the feature number of the next concert of the Honolulu Symphony orchestra to be .given Wednesday, March 30, under leader-shin of Fritz Hart, conductor. The program for the concert follows: Symphony in E Flat major....Haydn Vorspiel from "Lohengrin".. Wagner Invitation to the Waltz Weber Symphonic poem "Shenandoah" Fritz Hart It is gratifying to see a Haydn symphony, and a little known one, too, at the head of the list. Haydn's familiar "Surprise" symphony together with his equally well-known "Clock." are about the only num- j bers by that great master being J played todav with any degree of ' regularity. The E Fiat major work is as charming and robust as any cf the famous London series by Haydn. La Boheme Will Feature Concert Famous Italian artists together with the Milan Symphony orchestra under the direction cf Cavalier Lorenzo Molajoli will be heard In Puccini's popular favorite, La Boheme, to be given Tuesday. March 8. at 7:45 p. m. at the Honolulu Academy cf Arts. Thi3 will be the last of Mr. Lloyd's winter series of concerts at the academy. If the weather permits, a return will be made to the open air court in the new wing.

In pursuance cf thl? study. Mr. Mackail introduces briefly a variety of very human characters, some hi?hly attractive, seme otherwise and some merely pathetic, who, fcr the most part unconsciously, cross each other's paths. The difficulties of construction that are necessarily inherent in such a conception are formidable, but the author surmounts them with apparent ease. Out cf the various perplexities of these characters, many cf them obscure and ordinary people, he creates an entertaininsr storv, lightened with a gentle, though merry humor. Moreover, in thee days when authors are prone to take a rather sour view of humanity and life, he has contrived to write a book that Is happy without being insipid. G. World Almanac Out In Its New Edition For many years one of the r.wt useful books of reference has been the World Almanac. Census reports, scientific progress, sports records, prohibition, labor, unemployment, the depression, exchange rates, and a varied fund of mLscehancnus in formation, from the auto roads hi New York state to the holders cf large life insurance policies in the United States, can be found in concise form In the 850 pages of the almanac. . When the Scripros-Koward interests took over the New York World, the almanac was continued in its familiar form by the same editor. Robert Hunt Lyman, and the same staff, and Is published by the World-Telegram in paper and cloth bindings. I CURRENT MAGAZINES The March number cf the Mid-Pacific magazine ranges widely over Pacific lands, beginning with Ezra Crane's account of broadcasting the recent eruption of Kilauea. L, A. Mander .discusses problems of government in Fiji; Mrs. Kathleen Clapham tells of Tasmania: Kath-erine M. Cook describes the new education In Mexico; M. Dorothy Vernon contributes an especially interesting article on the Maoris; Don Wiley, former Honolulu newspaper man, writes of Siam; Dr. H. Kim relates some Korean customs; T. Y. Char sets forth the purposes cf Yenching university; Lucien Zach-aroff reports on modern city planning In the Soviet Union; Mrs. Atherton Lee describes impressions of Indo-China; Trinidad A. Rojo addresses Filipino undergraduates; H. J. Carter describes Sydney. I" PARADISE OF PACIFIC A Hawaiian garden scene by Anne Woodward is beautifully reproduced in rich color on the cover of the March number of Paradise cf the Pacific. The black and white illustrations from photographs, inside the magazine, are up to the usual high Paradise standard. The Paradise has a distinguished foreicn contributor In Hans Michaelis, Eerlin humorist, who tells in amusing words and pictures his experiences at a luau. The growth cf the University cf Hawaii in recent years is sketched by N. E. Eeck. Important current events receive editorial - comment, and Jane James contributes a pfege of sprightly miscellaneous personal descriptive notes. LaSelle Gihnan pays a witty tribute to the lure cf Hawaii. The islands" noble past Is represented in an extract from an early voyager's journal and continuation of Theodore Kelsey's commentaries on ancient Hawaiian prayers. There are several other interesting contribution';. PACIFIC AFFAIRS I Thcugh events in China occupy a large part cf the March number cf Facific Affairs, the msgattr.e, in keeping with the function cf the I. P. R., refrains from eiitorial comment, restricting Its activities to preser.tins information. M. S. Bates explains recent politics; Su-lee Chang reviews the last year and expresses confidence that the life cf the Chinese people has improved; the editor reviews the troubles In Manchuria and at Shanghai, and other oriental matters. Roger Levy contributed the lead-in? article cn "Indo-China in 1S31- 1932." .. I ARMY Y' PROGRAM I A pre-vesper concert will be given at 4 p. m. Sunday at the Army and Navy Y. LL C. A.

Clinging Age Versus Romance and Youth EVENSONG, by Beverley NkhoR Double day, Doran & Co. Beverley Nichols, one of the clever Enpllsli writers who are so numerous offers a novel constructed around the decline of an opera singer, a world famous prima donrvi who in beginning to grew old and whose voice is not quite what it once was. To Leep his story from becoming preoccupied with problems of advancing ace, and to relieve it from the harshness of the main theme. Mr. Nichols introduces a youth and love interest through the singer's orphan niece and a young free lance cameraman. As the story opens, the singer Irela is about to engage in one of her "farewell" tours, and her niece is joining her as secretary. A contest develops between Irela's pos-scssiveness and the girl'a latent independence; between the niece's loyalty to her aunt and her lave for Donald. The story reveals unsparingly the character of the singer: s.e;Iis.h, grasping, arrogant, conceited, clutching at youth. romance and everything around her intensely lonely, intensely possessive In her last stand. The niece, Pauline, was "of that breed of women to whom loyalty Is a curse." It took a supreme crisi3 to overcome that loyalty, which is carried to almost incredible lengths. Though, despite the vividness of the characteriration, one feels a sense of unreality in this novel, as If one were watching it cn a screen. o ; i French diodes interpreted in striking Oriental Silks 22C3 Kalalistia Avcnus f .1 ' J f i j t : i i t t ,t W i s f - . ft 1 e.e CesrriDcs rai! rr r x u . . v is i' early pictr, his relic: n. and Lis j years' 5--r;ce, u ,th f ue-cied atter.tica to b..s labors ti Ua 1.VWT.O.

Light Comedy Of Human Relations FAREWELL TO WOMEN. r Wi'son Celll.r.n. Robert M. MfBrid Wilson Collison's latest corned novel is frank, sliehtly "naughty," sophisticated and amusing. Ronny, a composer. . thought ha was Incapable cf lave, and fgent his time vainly trying to esrap women. They pursued him. He kepe their clgaret cases and forgot their names. Adrienne was the first he met whom he remembered. She clarified him correctly as "a man wh lived through Impulse and wh- moved with cudden desires." hud end of being a well rcculated machine as moH men are or a3 their wives want them to be. "No woman has ever been able to get along with him. but all cf them Jail in love with him." Ithstein had said cf him. That was because thpy never knew what to expect of him. "He was a little mad. But sh? was a little mad too, she thought." So she became his third wife and tolerated him longer than the others had. And a year later he was again sayin farewell to women to rc-ahza at Luc that all his life he had beci in love with one woman and the reei were illusions. The author writes clever dialocru and shows a good deal cf understanding of modern men and women. The book is light, but there is considerable thought behind the lightness, and some sound psychology cl certain types of pecple. G. it holds the Interest with a stea fascination. The detachment with which th? author approaches ;$ heightens i-s dramatic quality. iV'M;li: nr Phcr.s 91710
