of Maple Lake with bass.
James L. Brown, Esq.
Dear Mr.  Brown :-
On the 23rd instant, by mistake I
addressed a letter to you that Bhould
have gone to another party, referring to stocking four lakes.
I now acknowledge receipt of your
letter of the 14th Instant, enclosing
application from you to stock Maple
Lake with bass. I have forwarded
lt to the Department, and they advise
me that they have referred the mater to Dr. W, A. Clements, a member
of the Research Committee of Fish
Culture of the Biological Board, for
enquiry and report.
Generally speaking, the Departmeni
are rather against introducing Itas^
because it is so destructive to trout
and salmon, and they fear it may get
down into the sea from any lake it is
propagated. However. Dr. Clements
will make a report later.
Yours faithfully,
A. W. NEILL.

Road Surfacing
Starts Shortly
Public Asked to Co-operate With
Department   During   Time
of Treating Highways
With the continuation of warm, dry
weather. Uie officials ot tbe Department ot Public Works throughout the
province arc preparing for the treating of roads with bituminous surfacing. .Many sections of road have already heen prepared for the application of the surfacing and thc assurance of a spell of continued dry
weather will be followed hy active
work along this line.
There will be considerable of thla
done on Vancouver Island and, In a
number of cases, it will be necessary
from time to time, to close off parts
of the roads. When this is to be done
there will be ample notice given by
the department and. at the same time,
provision will be made for diverting
traffic so as not to inconvenience the
travelling public to any great extent.
At the department offices In the
Parliament Buildings the information
Is given foi* the benefit of those who
have to use freshly treated roads, that
it is unnecessary to suffer material
damage and Inconvenience to cars if
simple directions will be followed.
Preparatory to travelling over such
roads the owner of the car should apply to the mud guards and nlckled
parts of the car liable to be splashed
I with the road material, a light eoat-
, lug of some greasy substance, In
' this connection tbe ordinary grease
used for the lubricating cups is suitable. This should lie applied thinly
over the parts that are likely to be
affected.
On the return from tbe trip care
should be taken to remove the ma-
Iterial thai has been applied and with
| It the road dressing that adheres. Th:s
Is best done by tlie application of coal
oil. It is advisable to loose no time
■ in applying tlie coal oil and removing the gathered material, as otherwise there will be difficulty fn getting it off and the surface of the car
will be Injured.
In the same connection it Is requested by the officials of the department that in cases whore cars are
obliged to pass over freshly laid surfacing, that care be exveclsed so ni
not to injure the road. Drivers
should, in such case3, drfve slowly,
so as not to raise any more of the
dressing than is absolutely necessary.

Hospital Dance
Brilliant Success
One of the most delightful danco*
to be held in Cumberland this season
took place ou Friday evening In the
nature of the annual Hospital ball
under the auspices of the Ladles' Auxiliary to the Cumberland Hospital.
The hall looked very effective In decorations of red and white, While
Chinese lanterns over the lights fa
the centre of the hall lent a soft glow
to the dancers. At the lower end of
the hall, two large red crosses on
White ground with C. G. II. In the middle finished the effect.
Delicious refreshments were served
by the ladies at midnight and much
eredK is due Mrs. Hudson's orchestra
for the way in which the music waa
presented.
The whist drive given at the War
Veterans' hall Saturday night under
the auspices of the Hums' club was
a great success when twenty-two
lables of cards were In play. Tho
prize-winners were: ladles first, Mrs.
Devoy; ladles' second, Mrs. Gear, aad
ladies' travelling, Mrs. Devoy. Gent's
first prize was won by Mr. A. Clarke

At Social Evening
Ambulance   Association   Meets
and Fetes Winners in Recent
Competitions
The Anglican Church hall was the
scene of a very pleasant gathering
on Saturday evening last, when the
Cumberland centre of the St, John's
Ambulance Association met for thc
purpose of entertaining the members
of the winning (earns in the recent
first aid contest held ln Cumberland.
The first part of the evening was
devoted to whlst, Mrs. W. Hudson
being announced as the winner of the
ladles' first prize, with Mr, Henry
Watson (substituting) gaining the
second.    Mr. H.  Waterlield  was suc-
; cessful   in   gaining  the   gentlemen'.!
! first prize and Mr. H. Parkinson the
j second.
j Immediately after cards, Mr. Sid
Hunt asked A. J. Taylor, O.S.J.B.R., to
I take    charge   of   the    proceedings,
i whilst the refreshments were being
got ready. .Mr. Taylor during the
course of his remarks congratulated
the winning teams ou their remark-'
able successes in the recent first aid
meet. He traced the history of the
local centre from its very beginning
and pointed out that during thc time
Mr. Webb was headmaster at tb,e
Cumberland Public School he, (Mr.
Taylor), along with Mr. Webb had Introduced the teaching of first aid to
the students in the upper grades. Tlie
students proved to be very enthusiastic nnd made real good progress.
Not only in first aid work did the
students progress but lu their school
work a decided Improvement was
noticed. He sincerely hoped classes
for school students would be started
again. He deplored the fact that the
business people °f l-ie town, the merchants and other residents had not
taken up first aid work, making a
pica for them to do so and Intimating
that whilst they might uot think tt
necessary as very few accideuts happen during their business hours, yot
the subject was one which they might
take up with profit. One never knew
when an accident was going to happen
and there was nothing so deplorably
as seeing some unfortunate fellow
man suffering through an accident
and no one to render him first aid.
Continuing, Mr. Taylor said he had
been asked to perform a duty, which,
he said he approached with mingled
feelings. He had been asked to pre- j
sent to Mr. and Mrs. Graham, who
were leaving the district shortly to
make their home in Victoria, with
small tokens of esteem and respect
lu which Mr. and Mrs. Graham were,
held by the Cumberland Centre ofj
the St. John's Ambulance Association.
During the many years Mr. Graham
had bcen connected with the Canadian Collieries he had at all times
shown a great deal of interest in first
aid work and had assisted very materially in bringing about such a high
state of efficiency ln the local Am-
I balance Association, as existed at the
present time. Personally he, Mr.
Taylor was extremely sorry to hear
that Mr. Graham was going to leave
Cumberland and he sincerely hoped
that long life and continued happiness
would be enjoyed by Mr. and Mrs.
Graham in their new home In Victoria. On behalf of the Cumberland
Centre of the St. John's Ambulance
Association he had much pleasure ln
presenting to Mr. Graham a gentleman's toilet set and to Mrs. Graham
a perfume atomizer and hoped that
every time they had occasion to use
the gifts they would spare a kindly
thought for their friends of the ambulance association in Cumberland.
Mr. Graham on receiving the presents from Mr. Taylor was greeted
by the assembly singing "For they are
Jolly Good Fellows'*. Mr. Graham
said he was very much surprised at
receiving such beautiful tokens from
the members of the st- Pohn's Ambulance Association in Cumberland,
more specially, as he felt they were
unmerited. During his many years
association with thc Canadian Collieries he had taken more or less of
an interest in the work of thc ambulance association, but he really fell
that he had not taken as much Interest as he ought to have done. However, ho had always felt a glow of
pride when the Cumberland teams
brought back honors from the various
meets and he thoroughly appreciated
the very skilled work of the members
of the association In relieving distress
and suffering when accidents occurred
at the mines. Ho thanked them very
sincerely on behalf of himself and
Mrs. Graham for the beautiful gifts

Will Be Tourists
Favorite Resort
Orders-in-Coucil   Were   Passed
for Purchase of Alienated
Timberlands
Victoria, B.C., April 25.—The flrst
governmental step since the premiership of Sir Richard McBride toward
carrying out compreneasive plans to
make Strathcona Park a mecca for
summer residence and visitation by
well-to-do tourists In volume was
taken Wednesday, when ordcrs-ln-
councll were passed for the purchase
of all alienated tlrahcrlnnds within
the Park boundaries, on which an option was taken subsequent to the
Tolmle administration assuming office. The price payable Is roughly
$235,000, for which an explicit vote
was made by parliament last session.
Simultaneously the extension of existing road facilities via Campbell
River to the heart of the Park will
proceed under the direction of the
Public Works Department. The price
now to be paid for the timber holdings
which represent approximately one-
third of the Buttle Lake frontage la
considerably less than was demanded
by the then holders In the days of McBride and which Sir Richard declined
to pay, offering alternatively to give
the holders lieu timber lauds elsewhere In British Columbia.
Alveiislchen Interests
The lands in question were acqulr- j
ed years ago by the Alvo von Alven-
sleben Interests on the Coast, but
changed hands following the outbreak
of the war with Bermffny. Attempts
were made at times to make an exchange of the timber for areas elsewhere ou thc Island so that the
Strathcona Park area might be round-;
ed out as entirely within the control
of the Crown. J
Following the accession to power
of the present administration, this
matter of acquiring the timber receiv- j
ed attcation, with the gratifying re^
suits which have Just been consummated.

A Are works display at night has
been suggested, but several of tho
members of the committee are against
such display. Iu years gone by attempts have been made to put a fireworks display on which did not turn

nature of the Japanese singing, which j
showed careful training on the part

The operetta 'Uli Baba", which |
featured the second part of the pro-
gramme proved to be a great success.
The curtain "went up" on the;
"robber band" in their hidden cave,
all dressed In picturesque Arabian
costumes, with their bold leader
Shemssedln pacing the stage and declaring death to any tresspasser. At
the (magic words "open Sessame",

comes along selling thirty-nine Jars
of oil, but Morglanna discovers that
he has a robber hidden in every pot
and scalds them all. The dancing
girls enter to perform for the guest
Shemssedln, who drops dead during
the dance and Morglanna fs avenged
for the death of her father. As thg
good old fairy stories say. Fatima
marries Abdul the sage, and Morglanna marries Mustapho. and they all
live happily ever after.

GAME REGULATIONS
ARE ANNOUNCED
Three Deer May Be Shot In This
District uf Which One
Must Re Doe
By order-ln-couucl) regulations relative to the big game of the province
for the present season have been
brought Into effect aud are being
promulgated through the ordinary
sources by the Attorney-General's
department. In 'bringing la these
regulations there hns been made a
change whereby in parts of tho country where deer are allowed to be shot
tho way is thrown open for killing of
a limited number of female deer Instead of confining the shouting to
bucks alone.
At thc same time it is not going
lo be possible to add to thc number
ot deer to be killed by a hunter, but
instead there will be the snme limit
as to the number to be taken. In
the Eastern District the number shall
ho two doer and In the Western District, three deer. Provision Is made
however, by which one of these fn
each case may be a female.
The change In tbe regulations with
respect to the killing of female door
follows presentations that have been
made that lu many parts of the country the practice of exempting femalog
and confining the killing to males has
j been having the effect of unduly Increasing the proportion of females,
The result it has been pointed ou\
was rather in the direction of deplet-
lng the herds Instead of Increasing
them.

they ended their day in rather an unexpected and thrilling way. At five

BIG GAME HUNTERS
A great variety of game—animals,
birds, fishes—ia found In British Columbia. The hunter with ritle or
smoothbore, or angler or troller,
there Is a wide choice, said C. K. Howard, Manager of the Tourist and Convention bureau, Canadian National
Railways. Big game includes moose,
bear, caribou, elk, mountain sheep,
goats and deer. Yearly parties of
big game hunters visit the province
notably the Casslar district and Golden, returning laden with trophies, and
many articles have been written in
the world's magazines to tell hunting
successes. In the coast districts deer,
mountain goat, tear, ami elk are
found; in the southern interior caribou, mountain sheep and goat, mule-
deer, white-tailed deer and bear; in
central interior, caribou, mooae,
mountain sheep and goat; in Peace
River vicinity, moose, caribou, mountain sheep and bear. Grizzly boar are
found In most of tbe mountain regions
and occasionally on the north mainland coast. Among wild animals not
protected might also be mentioned
the timber wolf, coyote, cougar and
wildcat.
In connection with this broadcast
it was hoped to have Mrs. M, B. Tribe
go over to Vancouver as Courtenay's
representative artiste to sing over the
air but she is engaged this week in
connection with the Nanaimo Musical
Festival. However, it is understood
that in the near future Mrs. Tribe will
be heard over CKWX.
All local radio fans are asked to
listen in on Friday night and hear
about the wonders of this trip from
Nanaimo to Courtenay as they are being told to thousands in the outside
world.

Association, 184 College St., Toronto, will be answered personally

Cancer
Cancer is an old disease, It is
dpcrfhed in the writings of the ancients which have come down to us.
Only in comparatively recent times
has it been understood that the Various tissues of the body are made up
ni the one type of cell, all coming
from one parent cell. Similarly,
cancer begins In the stomach and
spreads to the liver, the growth in
lho liver will resemble stomach cell.'".
not   liver  cells.
Under normal conditions, the cells
ni' the body divide, grow mature and
die. Al present, we do not know
what controls this process. Apparently when this control is lost or disorganized, growth occurrs which, in
some casest is cancerous or malig-
iianl.
There are many theories concerning the cause of cancer, which Ih another way of saying that there Is no
satisfactory or generally accepted
theory. Thc disease is not heriditnry
ln most cases, it occurs after some
sort of chronic irritation . This irritation may ibe mechanical and be
produced by broken teeth, teeth which
do not meet properly and have sharp
edges, and by poorly fitting plates.
The irritation may lie due to a chronic inflammation, such as infected teeth
or sinuses, or of the lining of the
uterus. Habitual abuse or the stomach may produce chronic irritation
of that organ. Constipation is probably a factor in cancer of the rectum.
It has not been shown that any
particular type of diet has any in-
tiuence on cancer. Our present knowledge permits us to say that Its prevention lies in the prevention or removal of types of irritation above re-

may be found snd the need for their
correction pointed out. which is ono
excellent reason why everyone should

Ai present, our only method of cure
Is by removal or destruction of the
growth, once tl hau developed. If
done early, tills offers a good chance
for cure. Il Is early treatment which,
•i) me,  is  of value.
Keep Things Where They Belong
Having been asked frequently as to
tiie removal of wax from the ears, we
are prompted to write that there Is
considerable truth In the old saying
"Never put anything into your ear
smaller than your elbow." lt Is a
mistake which nmn> mothers make,
that of trying to remove wax from
leep in Ih'eear. If wax does collect
there, and it not freqentl.v does to
ti:e extent of Interfering with hearing.
ii should be removed by n doctor.
Improper means of removal may do
considerable   damage   permanently.
it is into the mouth, however, rather than Into the ear. that so many
i'*ings go which do not belong there,
rood, drink and tooth-brush are the
only objects which should go into
the mouth, although lingers, car-tickets and money are often placed there,
The simple reason why the latter
should not happen is that It is through
the mouth most disease germs enter
the body. Anything which may be
soiled with human secretions should
I be kept out of the mouth, because
such secretions may carry disease
; germs. The car ticket given out by
tiie conductor, frequently with fingers
moistened with saliva aud then h'ari-
died by our hands or gloves which
have touched many things that might
be soiled by saliva or other secretions
should not go into the mouth.
In most cases, there is no actual
danger because disease germs, in gen-
I eral. die quickly outside of the human
body by drying. However, to avoid
' the vein- real danger that does ile in
; this habit it is necessary to develop
j the opposite habit of never placing
■■ in tbe mouth things which are out of
| place there.
It in through the consistent practice of such habits that each one of
! us can do much to ensure protection
I from disease. It may seem to be a
I small thing, hut it is one of the small
I things which have an effect beyond
: what one who did not see their im-
j portance  would expect.
Keep things whore they belong, and
so, keej) disease germs out of the
mouth.

Well Known Harley Street Doctor Writing in the Fishing Gazette Describes Trip to Campbell River.
Dr. Lewis Smith, of London, England, who wns a visitor to these parts
last summer, describes in the Fish- i
ing Gazette, publishjed in England,
how he became a member of the famous Tyee club of Campbell River.
Dr. Smith says:
"There was but Tour days before
me. and I was due to leave," ho writes
"Then my link changed. It was *
bright, sunny aftornon. about 4
o'clock when I felt a sudden heavy
tug on my line and struck hard as
one must .io with these big Tyees.
"'Like n Hash he wns awny and the
line was belli? 'oni off my reel at
break-neck speed, After that I don't
remember rer.. much of what exactly
happened 1 know I sat down with
lhe rod well up and as the good reel
s:mg and one fell the surprising power
ot' the racing fish, 1 knew again the
joy of fight which conies all too seldom hi Mono dull days; the feel that
a King fish ami 1 had had come to
erips a id thai one of us was doomed
ami no quarter was possible! My
tackle was good enough for anything
and 1 played him bard. I can recall
some of his wild rushes and sickening
jags, and I could have screamed when
he tore fifty yards along tho surface
a: upteem m.p.h, in a flurry of foam.
"I remember how- be 'sounded' till
I thought lie would never stop and
tlie hoop my stout rod made till my
heart misgave me and I had to hand
off line. Ana 'hen . . I was almost
surprised to tind him showing his
silvery side and knew tho fight wa3
over . . . and Joe had gaffed him into
the boat and we two were shaking
hinds. He was a short, thick, well-
cbhdltloned beauty, silver bright with
sea Ice showing. A small head, no
beak and a grand tail, thirty and a
half pounds; not a big flsh as Tyees
go, but his thirty pounds entitled
him to a position of respectability Id
the Tyee world, aud made me a member of the Tyee Club and permitted
me now and evermore to wear the
brone button."
The doctor described the battle
with thc fish he caught the next morning which won him thc silver button
and then that on tbe following day
which made him Tyee man.
Tlie I'rlze
"Ye Gods, whal a light he put up,"
he says. "First a straight, furious
rush; 120, 130, 140 yards at breakneck speed as though he would never
stop with my searing fingers on the
spool anil hand over reel-rim In a
feeble attempt to slow him down.
Then a sudden doubie-back towards
tho bbal while o:ie reeled in madly
and prayed to save a slack line. Off
again like a flash, tliis time on the
surface with glimpses of brown and
silver as be almost circled the boat
in a smash of white foam. Then down
to tie very depths with the good rod
bending almost, double and horrid
visions of a break. Up again and
away in another series of mud dashes
ami rushes at top speed, 'till one's
cramped fingers and aching arms
were almost unbearable. Always my
luck held. Hy some miracle the
dreaded overrun i'orebore and gradually his rushes, grew shorter and
slower, till at lasi I saw the sheen
of his mighty side aad knew he was
beaten. And thus, after the tensest
thirty minutes of my fishing career,
he lay in the bottom of the boat, a
monster of a fish. 63^1 pounds of
bright silver, the heaviest, handsomest salmon 1 ever saw. Verily It Is
better to be lucky than rich."
The sixth dinner of Courtenay St.
George's Society was held in the Elk
Hotel, Comox, on Tuesday night, in
commemoration of the anniversary of
the slaying of the dragon by St.'
George, the birth of Will Shakespeare,;
the Battle of Zeebrugge, the Battle of
St. Julien and, Incidentally, the death
of Shakespeare. So popular has this
annual event become that the tickets
were sold out early and many were
disappointed In not being able to attend.
The president of the Society, Mr.
Theed Pearse, welcomed the guests and
took occasion of reminding those present of the forthcoming visit of the
Players' Club of the University of
British Columbia.
Grace was then said by the Rev. G.
L. Bourdillon and an excellent typical
old English dinner of Roast Beef and
Yorkshire Pudding, Vegetables, Plum
Pudding, Pies and Cream. Jellies, etc.,
was heartily enjoyed, after which a
delightful programme of toasts and
musical numbers was given.
The toastmaster, Lieut.-Col. C. W.
Vi liters, regretted the absence of the
senior English residents of the district,
to whom special invitations had been
sent. He asked Mr. E. Felix Thomas,
the secretary, to write to these English
pioneers, Mrs. F. M. Cllffe, of Comox,
Mr. H. E. Bayly, of Happy Valley, and
Mr. William Beech, ot Grantham, expressing the sentiments of the gath- j
; ering and assuring them that they j
were not forgotten.
A feature of the programme was the j
community singing of old English
songs.

Correspondence
Cumberland,  B.C.,
April   25th,   1929.
The Editor,
Cumberland   Islander.
Dear Sir:
As one of a crowded house at the
llo-llo Theatre on Thursday evening
may I, through your columns, be permitted to express my own and the
apreclatiou of others at tlie excellence
of the entertainment given by the
Cumberland school children, especially the chief number 'AH I3aba and tho
Forty Thieves". It was an ambitious
programme In every way. and the
greatest credit is due to Mr. G. K.
Apps, Mr. H. E. Murray and othen
who have given of their spare time
and energy to train tliose who took
part In it. The pupils of the Cumberland Public and High Schools are
fortunate in having a staff of teacher*
who will give up su much of their
spare time in this way, and the preparation for this excellent entertainment must have demanded a great
deal of patience and practice on the
part of all. A word of congratulation In our local press therefore does
not come amiss, and with It is coupled

BOYD NOW A STAR
His Initial Vehicle Is Fine Film,
"Dress Parade"
William Boyd, whose outstanding
work iu such pictures as "The Volga
Boatman", and ''The Road to Yesterday" raised him high In the popularity of the public, is (ho latest Cecil
B. DeMllle player to be rewarded with
the signal honor of stardom.
Boyd's stellar debut Is made In
"Dress Pnrade," an original story by
Major Robert Qlassburn and Alexander Chilton of West Point, which
was filmed on an elaborate scale ou
the actual scenes of the story, tl will
be on view ut the Ilo-Ilo this Monday
and Tuesday.

Fish Species
Game fishes found In British Columbia include two species of salmon,
several of trout ,arllc grayling, char,
none which are Indigenous to Eastern Canada or United States, according to reports reaching the Tourist
and Convention bureau of the Canadian National Railways, Five species
of salmon frequent tidal and fresh
waters, the "spring" taking the troll
and "steelhead" rising to a Hy; the
other species refusing a lure und aro
taken commercially In nets and traps.
The trout Include all recognized varieties of tbe Pacific Coast. They arc
found In tho streams and great and
small lakes of the province. Tbe
steelhead more closely resemble the
Balmon of Europe nnd Eastern part
of Canada than any other fish on the
Pacific slope.
London—the new British airships,
the largest yet constructed In the
world are expected to make their first
flying trials in May or June, and one
of the problems associated with them
is the recruitment of skilled crews,
says the Times aeronautical writer.
Since the new mooring masta at
Cardlngtou was tested in licit! and the
R-I!:) returned to Putnam to be broken
up. there has been no opportunity for
any practical training in the air. At
present there is a sufficiency or trained men from the old airships to ensure a tull cr«w for one of the new
ships fur two watches of eight hours,
but so far there are not enough trained men to provide three watches.
wbich would be essential for any long
flights. The new ships will require a
crow of just under forty men. nnd as I
there will be no need for both ships I
to be In the air at the start opportun-
lty will he given when the lirst fly-
Ing trails take place to give air ex-j
parlance to the new men who are in
process of training.
Major G. F. Scott as the officer in
charge of flying and training, will not
definitely command any one ship, and
It Is considered probable that Squadron-Leader It. S. Booth, who was the I
senior officer aboard tho R-33 when
she   broke  away   from   the  Pulham \
mast In  1925, and Flight-Lieutenant j
H. C. Irwin, will be the actual commanders of the 5,000,000,000 cubic feet
capacity ships when they are both in i
commission.    Major   Scott,   however.'
will, it is expected take command of .
the R-100 on her llrst flight, for once
she  leaves  the shed  of tbe Airship i
Guarantee Company at Howden she i
must be brought down to the Royal
Airship Works at Carding!on for her
trials.
Lengthy Training
The home trials ot the two ships
and the requisite training of full
watch crews must necessarily occupy
some months, so that no date can yet
be assigned to the first Empire cruise
but thc first Imperial flights of the
state airship will be made along the
route to the mooring mast at Isniallla
In Egypt ami then on to the similar
mast at Karachi where there is also a
shed for dry docking purposes. A very
careful study is in progress of the
meteorological conditions on the future Empire airship routes, and lt U
a curious instance of how modern developments revive old methods that
"the roaring forties" of the old windjammer days will now play an important pari In the calculations of the future airship commanders. Tbe winds
used by the old sailing captlaus will
become the handmaids, of the controllers uf the newer craft, tor by flying
to Australia via the Cape, these westerly winds will enable a high speed
to be maintained from Cape Town io
Perlh. and on the return Journey, the
old southeast trades, ignored by the
steamers, will help to blow the airship homo by keeping to a more
northerly course. But unlike the old
clippers, which were entirely dependent upon tbe wind, the airship when
necessary can rise superior to them
by opening up all her engines to full
power. Another favorable factor Is
that the colonization of the Empire
was largely governed by the sailing
ship routes, aud. therefore, pi culling
winds are in most cases suitable for
airships on their Empire journeys.
SYD CHAPLIN RETURNS
IN A HILARIOUS COMEDY I
After    a    longabsonce    from    tho
screen, Sydney Chaplin returns In u
hilarious   English   comedy   "Skirts." i
released  through   Metro-G o 1 d w y u -1
Mayer, and coming to the llo-llo this
Friday and Saturday.
In most of Mr. Chaplin's successes
since ills memorable 'Charleys' Aunt',
in which the action centered about j
bis Impersonating a midle-aged wo-!
man. the star has heen given roles \
In which he has to wear female ha- j
bllnients during at least some parts
Of tne action.
This he does lu "Skirts'' ton, though '
his female Impersonation to this film
lakes up a minor part In the action
of the play. The story centers about
a young bridegroom who Is left alone
when hie bride's mother takes her
daughter off with her to London, and
the resulting complications which
ensue when he and Ills friend, nlao a
momentary "widower." determine to
go off for a good tlmo.
Much «f the hilarious comedy takes
place in a popular London cabaret
where the two "free souls" Immediately  betake   themselves   as   soon   as
I they  find  themselves "wifeless."
In the cast with Mr. Chaplin ar>
; Betty Balfour, Nancy lllgg, Annie
Esmond. Kdniond Breori, Diana Wilson,    Clifford   McLaglen   and   Enid
! Stamp Taywor.
/The film is based on a former
stage success "A  Little Bit of Fluff."
