hey-- a simple question for somebody. essentially, i'm trying to figure out some package basics here so i can access a public variable across multiple classes. so, how do i make this work: (comments in caps below)

package reader_pp;
import java.util.*;

public class Tester {
   
    public static String huh;
   
     public static void main (String[] args) {
         huh = "huh";
        new Tester().tester1();
       
     }  
       
     public void tester1 () {
         
           System.out.println(huh);
           TestPrint testtt = new TestPrint( );
           //new TestPrint.TestPrint();
       }  
}

class TestPrint{
   
    TestPrint( ) {
        System.out.println("need to print here");
       
         //ULTIMATELY I NEED TO ACCESS VARIABLES HERE THAT ARE DEFINED IN THE PUBLIC CLASS tester such as the varibale: huh
        System.out.println(huh);
    }
   
   
   
}
