Roosevelt, president of the United States, came ashore at Honolulu this morning to be greeted by more than 60,000 people. As he circled tlie island later another 40,000, it was estimated, paid their respects. They gave him a welcome that in spontaneity and color no city in the United States could surpass. Smiling and happy, the president came down the gangplank from the cruiser. Houston at 9:15 a. m. today accompanied by his sons, John and Franklin Jr., stepped into a waiting automobile and was whisked away on a tour of the city and around the island. All along the route crowds of Honolulu residents were lined to see the first president of the United States ever to visit Hawaii while in office. Crowds Gather at 6 A. M. As early as 6 a. m. the crowds had begun to gather along the route asd on Pier 2, where the Houston docked. At 7:30 a. m. there appeared from the distance 100 army and navy planes, flying along the coast to meet the incoming presidential ship. At 7:50 spectators on Pier 2 saw the big cruiser rounding the entrance buoy to the harbor and proceed into port. Escorting the ship were 13 canoes, manned by Hawaiians in yellow capes such as were worn by Hawaiian warriors in the past. One of these craft was a double canoe, carrying Duke Kahanamoku costumed as Kamehameha the Great. All around the harbor other small craft were lingering, and all steamers at the Honolulu wharves were gaily dressed In flags and bunting. Also escorting . the cruiser into the harbor was the customs cutter -Senator S, carrying J. Walter Doyle, collector of customs, and with Its decks' linedV-witlr uniformed customs officers at attention. - The Houston proceeded to the far end of the harbor, made its turn and, after the escort ship,' the USS New Orleans, had entered and docked at Pier 7, the Houston came alongside Pier 2. 5 Marines Form Guard of Honor Assembled on the pier was a guara of honor consisting of a battalion of U. S. marines, commanded by Maj. James Betts, and the U. S. marine band from Pearl Harbor.

Takes Off Hat To 'Aloha Oe' Then the Royal Hawaiian band played Hawaii's famous song of wel come, "Aloha Oe. As the strains of this famous song were heard. President Roosevelt removed his hat and stood with it over his heart until the music had died away. His gesture met with a burst of applause from the spectators on the dock, whereupon the president cheerily waved his hat to his greeters. He then left the deck and retired to his quarters. It was an orderly, quiet crowd that had assembled on Pier 2 this morning to greet the president. The applause with which they greeted the president was enthusiastic but at the same time subdued and respectful. Civilian and military police had no difficulty in keeping the spectators within the area marked off by ropes and by rows of flags. With the Houston docked and the gangplank in place, CoL P. M.
