Dia mond Head is the visitors first sight of land when approaching Hawaii. And on the West lies low marshy lands slopping back to the low, cloud topped hills which present a never to be forgotten picture.

Also the mad rush of women on their Saturday shopping tour. By this time we had reached the center of town which is only four blocks showers of "Liquid Sunshine as it is called. 1 was quite astonished at this at first but have since learned that it is a common occurance. And along w ith these you might say cloudless showers, one can see a rainbow al most any time during the day, and always there is the ocean blue and ..shimmering in exquisite beauty with a dim reflection of the rainbow shin ng through its transparent waves. A few weeks ago a few friends and mvself went on a sightseeing tour ! "Oh Isle of Beauty in the sea!" they will want to take them for their place of abode in reality. I sometimes wonder when I am to leave here if I will regret to go. But will have the days I spent in Beautiful Hawaii, as my most cherished memories. I was reading a poem recently written by a tourist, Mrs. George E. Walker, jwho had been visiting here and was . returning home and which I thought was worth adding to this story: I", from the harbors edge. As I gazed around me I began wondering if we had come to an island town or that lino went to manv n ares nf interest was the throne room (or rather ani3n,i saw many won(terful things.

Last of all for the amusements that I will mention is Waikiki Beach, which is four miles from Honolulu and can be reached by electric cars and numerous hard surfaced roads, the beach is one of the best I have seen anywhere. And at all hours during the day and even at night you can see bathers and surface-riding and canoeing. The large pleasure seeking crowds that swarm the beach throughout the year find much en joyment in canoeing and surf-riding. Waikiki joins Diamond Head and the palm cocoanut and hua trees and so forth are along the beach, theii shades making it more comfortable and enjoyable for the bathers. For the theater going people there are three or four first class movie houses and one vaudeville house, I dare say that the movie films pro duced in California are shown here long before they reach old North Carolina. While in San Diego it was my privilege to witness William Fox and his company of actors make pic tures which since then have been de veloped and was shown in Honolulu .1-'tS THE UNIVERSAL CAR 1 " . .

And in a very short while we were quite a distance above the city. About halt way up we tarried a' few minutes on account of a hot motor and to view the city and surrounding country and ocean. Sometimes we could see the faint outline of a ship either com ing in or going out. Then looking across to the West we could see down into the one time active volcano "Dia mond Head". Then we proceeded to our destination. Upon reaching the top of the Pali we came to a narrow pass. Looking down you could see several hundred feet, and the green foliage and vegetation and flowers were all great to 6ee. It rains ud there frequently and keeps everything fresh and cool and the atmosphere smeus as tnough you were in a rose garden. You must remember that all along the road on either side there are pretty little bungalows perched on both sides of the road, and in some cases even on the rugged rocks. And wondered how these people managed to live on such a high elevation ( par ticularly m some places; ana survive. Alter we had taken pictures and viewed the numerous beauties, we then decided that a few of us would take a walk down to the Mid-Wav club house. We found it difficult to walk in the narrow paths it was so steep and the constant rains kept the paths slippery. However we arrived at the club house in due time, some with badly soiled clothes and a few bruises. Here we had refreshment's and were furnished amusement and music by some of the Hawaiian boys and girls. I used to hear so much of the Hawaiian musicians and it is true for most all can play some instrument. Where Eden's Garden still should be, No farther will I sail upon my quest! To dream of stars above Pah. Enchanting spell of Waikiki A Paradise wherein my soul could rest. Later when I become more ac quainted with Honolulu I will try and write of Honolulu itself, its peo ple and their ways. And probably a little about the Oriental section of town which comprises more than two thirds of the entire city and industry. Also when I have the opportunity to visit the volcano which I thing will be in March I hope to be able to re late to you the rising and falling of the lava that is noticeable each day.
