Highlights of the tour taken by a Russian opera company across the U. S. in 1922, as reported by their publicity man. He tells of how he found them on his doorstep, virtually, how he and Hood took the gamble, launched them in Seattle, and then went on tour.

Of no great import, other than as a novelty.
