Yet somehow their spirit dominates the personality of the islands, and the slow softness of the old Hawaii remains. Hawaii is thoroughly modern. Honolulu is a magnificent city of 150,000, and it has everything you 'could find on the mainland except skyscrapers. It even has traffic jams. The streets are a bizarre mixture of kimonocd white-lined business men and raid- iant tourists. ' There are eight major islands in the Hawaiian group, stretching for nearly 400 miles. Five are important, and well-inhabited. AH of the islands came from volcanoes which spouted out lava until it reached far above the surface of the ocean. The centuries weathered the lava slopes, plant life took hold, and today the Hawaiian group is a luxuriant green garden. Island Stronghold _From the government's standpoint Hawaii's No. 1 virtue is national defense. Pearl Harbor puts our navy 2400 miles closer to the Orient than it could be if we didn't have Hawaii. Oahu Island (which contains Honolulu and Pearl Harbor) is probably the most fiercely fortified spot tinder the American flag. The army has a full division there— the only full division now under arms. Giant guns line the shore on both sides of Honolulu. So modem is th army's motor equipment, and so thorough the plans, that any point on the entire island's coast can be reached in 40 minutes. Industrially, sugar is dominant in Hawair. Most people think first of pineapples. But sugar brings in throe times as much. No Place for Speculators Financially, Hawaii is almost a mon- oply. It is controlled by a group of companies known as the "Big Five.' Originally it was five families. Today it has grown into many families, but it is still five companies. The "Big Five" made Hawaii in the first place, by gambling millions on sugar plantations, and they don't see why late-comers should reap part of the gravy. Almost everybady in Hawaii do pcnds, directly or indirectly, on the "Big Five." They run the islands on a theory of "benevolent paternalism," and in defending themselves they point to a living standard for laborers far above that on the minlnd. What to Do With Japs Probably no evening's conversation between white men in Hawaii has been held in the last 40 years that didn't get around to the "Japanese problem." Hawaii today has around 400,00 people and a third of them re Jap- Want It Printed RIGHT? We'U have a printing expert caJl on you, and you'll have an economical, high quality job.

But the white resident in awaii says "No." White men in Hawaii don't like to think of what the Japanese would do in case of war. But the U. S. Army has its ideas about that. Hawaii is no burden on the U. S. It supports itself. And now it wants to be made a state. At least, some people want it made a state. But it probably won't happen as long as the army and navy live anything ,to say— and they have plenty. Wrds Cannot Describe . . .
