Made possible through the cooperation of the USO, local community women and the YWCA, the attractive lounge was accepted by the uniformed guests with pleased surprise, especially when It came to the perky red and white powder room outfitted with every cosmetic designed to lend a glow to the face and a spark to the morale of our iris in the armed services. Jb only Honolulu center for enlisted women, the lounge has a springlike atmosphere, with chintzes and solid colors in green, yellow and white, and delicately carved wood grill work depicting Hawaiian plants over the arched entrance. White screens, wrought Iron furniture among the upholstered pieces and masses of white and pastel flowers add to the cool, refreshing feeling of the lounge. Here service women who drop while on liberty or pass find a good, up to date library, information and checking facilities, magazines and writing facilities. But the star of the lounge is the powder bar, which was filled to capacity as soon as the doors were opened by young ladies intent on gilding the lily just for the fun of it.
