Hawaii's Miniature Railroad LAHAINA, Maui (AP) The Kaanapali-Lahaina and Pacific Railroad is Hawaii's only operating railroad — and it's track is just a little longer than its name. The railroad runs through 6Vfe miles of sugar cane fields and skirts the ocean on the western coast of the island of Maui, Hawaii's valley isle. The train—a diesel-fired steam engine and two coach cars—serves as a tourist attraction for this resort area. But at the turn of the century, a similar train running on the same track was used to haul sugar cane from the fields to a refinery, a job now done by trucks. Since the "Sugar Cane Train" is Hawaii's only representation of the railroad era, tourists aren't the only people who use it. Many Hawaii families bring their children to ride and experience what was once a fashionable mode of transportation. For the cost of a $2 ticket, the children can hear the clanking of the rails, feel the bumping and jerking in the Times Herald, Carroll, la. jr Wednesday, July 10, 1974 3 cars, and smell the steam that can only be created by a train ride. "Myrtle" is the train's No. 1 engine. Another steam engine, "Anake," is used for a back-up. These two were built in 1943 for a limestone quarry in Ohio. They were refurbished in Pennsylvania and shipped to Hawaii. The train makes five round trips each day — six days a week. Willis B. Kyle of Fresno, Calif, owns the K-L and P Railroad. He also is the owner of four other tourist-railroads in California, Arizona and Oregon. , One additional treat on the Kaanapali line is the singing ' conductor, Edward Pakaki.

NEW YORK (AP) -Sometimes you can ignore the numbers or say that they lie, but when you're impaled on them, as is the American consumer, you know by the pain that the numbers are real. Most significant of the numerical spikes are those that show disposable income has risen close to 10 per cent during the past year but that prices have risen even more sharply, although only slightly more so. But the pain doesn't come from prices alone. Taxes too have risen. So, despite those pay increases, real spendable earnings at midyear are 4.5 per cent below a year ago. Adding to the financial strain of many families is the necessity to pay off some of the big installment credit loans that were taken out in 1972 and 1973 — some of them forced on consumers by existing financial strains. According to Harris Bank of Chicago, the rise of installment credit in those two years was exceeded only once before in the past two decades. It increased 15.1 per cent, compared to 16 per cent in 1955-1956. There were unusual factors at work in that earlier period. It was a time of unprecedented increases in automobile sales, for one thing. For another, it was the beginning of a trend toward those "easy credit" terms we have today. Moreover, debt in relation to income was far less than it is today. The strains are showing up in the savings rate, which most forecasters believed would rise this year. It might have, for a while, but it too seems to have fallen victim to the need to pay inflated bills. In the last three months of 1973 it jumped to 7.3 per cent of disposable personal income, after having reached a low point of 5.7 per cent in the previous quarter. In the early part of this year it dropped back to 6.6 per cent. The most plausible explanation is that consumers had little choice but to spend rather than save because of the increases in the prices of gasoline, heating oil and food. Already at their credit limit, they obtained the money from what might have been earmarked for the bank or an insurance policy. A good many economic forecasters believe that installment credit, now totaling close to $150 billion, will rise more slowly in the second half of the year. It is, in fact, rising currently at a rate less than one-half that of 1973. .£_&.. 9 to 5 MONDAY THRU SATURDAY FRIDAY TILL 9 P.M. 100% POLYESTER DOUBLE KNITS SO99 A Yd 60" Wide, Machine Wash And Dry — Yarn Dyed Fancies ~v Reg. $3.99 Yd.
