·rtXTEEN MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, MARCH 13 195fi Clear Lake Globe-Gazette OFFICE PHONE 239 HELEN HENDRICKS, News Editor LEE DEWIGGINS, Circulation and Advertising Residence Phone 310-W Residence Phone 67 M. C. Rydson Re turns From Trip in West Sightseeing Trip and Voyage to Hawaii Are Included. CLEAR LAKE--M. C. Rydson returned Thursday from a three months' trip in the west and to the Hawaiian islands, to resume his work with the Sears Construction company. He was enchanted with Hawaii and states it is an ideal place in which to live. While there he saw Naomi Frisbee, Garner, a. former Clear Lake teacher, who is now teaching in the Kola Kua college in Honolulu. Rode Surf Boards. Accompanied on the trip by Virgil Winnie, Mr. Rydson had an apartment on Wakiki Beach where he and Mr. Winnie, tried their luck on surf boards. There are crews of teach boys who care for the beach and handle the surf boards, often giving exhibitions for the tourists. He especially enjoyed the perfect climate which varies only a few degrees the year around, and the beautiful scenery. On one hike they went up' to Sacred Falls, a gorge in the mountains where they swam in cold fresh water. This is a dangerous trip in case of a cloud burst. According to the old .custom, every- hody who goes there makes a peace offering to the gods for their safe return. Many of these offerings may be seen placed between two stones near the trail. Living Cost Same. Native hula hula dancers were seen at the luas, special entertainments for tourists. Living expenses on the island are about the same as in the United States, and the people on the islands have not felt the depression, according to the traveler. Upon his return his boat landed at San Francisco and then travelled on down the coast to San Pedro. Enroute home he attended the San Diego Exposition, visited friends at Phoenix, Ariz., and stopped at Juarez, Mex. Clear Lake Theater JANE FHOMAN STARS IN PARK ATTRACTION Harry Warren and Al Dubin, ace song writers, have composed four new hits for "Stars Over Broadway," the new Warner Brothers music comedy which comes to the Park theater Saturday and Sunday. The songs include "You Let Me Down," a torch number; "Where Am I?" a ballad, and a character novelty, "At Your Service, Madame." Jane Froman, who recently was named the most popular singer of modern songs in a poll conducted by radio editors of the United States and Canada, will introduce "You Let Me Down." In productions staged by Bobby Connolly, brilliant dance director, she will sing "At Your Service, Madame" with James Melton, the famous radio singer, who makes his film debut in this film. * * * ROSE MARIE" IS FEATURE AT LAKE Shooting night scenes in broad daylight is the latest accomplishment of the wizard motion picture camera. This was done recently at Lake Tahoe, where W. S. Van Dyke was directing scenes for the spectacular Totem Pole Indian dance of Metro- Goldwyn-Mayer's "Rose Marie." Now finished, this picture opens a two day engagement Sunday at the new Lake theater. The stirring song, "Song of Mounties," sung by Nelson Eddy on horseback and "Indian Love Call," sung by Jeanette MacDonald are enhanced by the natural echoes from the canyon.
