25 FOXES ARE ONE WEEK BAG Conservation Units Are "Going To Town" In Predatory War Predatory animate in Kossuth county are in for some hard times between now and June 15—or at least that is the opinion of the boys in the office of County Auditor E. S. Klnsey. For the county-wide competition between units of the Kosauth Conservation League is under way, and Saturday saw the flrtt results of the unit's hunts turned In for bounty. From the Lone Rock district alone, some 162 starlings and 179 crows have been turned In since the hunt began. Hugh McDonald of Hurt has turned in nine foxes. Max Bartholomew of Algona has turned in three foxes, and Allen Darby of LuVerne has bagged five of them. C. A. Heard of Algona has eight to his credit, and so it goes. E V Pierce, conservation officer, turned in 32 crows and 11 starlings. Not all of the prizes of the hunt are turned In by conservation league members, but the auditor's office Is willing to confirm the viewpoint that the contest is really going to town. And in the meantime If you have a flock of crows or starlings that you d like to a* leave the world, or a few stray foxes that are grabbing off your chickens, along with the pheasants, tell the conservation league boys about It and they'll come to your aid with hearty vim and vigor.

Foreigners may not own dogs In West Virginia. Calling a woman a "flapper" is unlawful in Tennessee. In Boston, dogs are supposed to he less than ten inches high, but 48 Inches is okay for a cat (hate to meet that one!).

With a great many miles of water between me and the United States I again open my correspondence with you. This is in compliance with my promise to write from Hawaii to tell of my travels in this territory. After we left San Diego we sailed some 2,000 miles to the west and south to engage In the fleet annual manuevers, with liberty being allowed at Honolulu and also at Lahaina Roads, Maul, T. H.; at Lahaina, however, due to the Inadequate housing facilities and the smallness of the town only 7 per cent of the men were allowed to go ashore. I was lucky enough to draw the lucky card and visit this lovely isle, Maul, of the Hawaiian group. The members of this ship were very close to missing these liberty spots as about three days out from San Diego an epidemic of tonsllitls broke out and eleven days later reached Its peak with 643 of a ship's crew of 1809 on the sick list. With only 21 hospital corpsmen, and nt one time five of these on the sick list, we certainly had a workout. We worked day and night to treat the ill men and endeavored to stamp out the cause, so many a night we lost a great deal of "sleep. So many men were stricken at the peak of the epidemic that we were incapacitated to further carry out our manuevers so it was necessary for us to drop out of them, and proceed to Honolulu to recover Finally, 19 days after its origin, we were in order again and things'sub- sided to normal. Hawaii—Land of Songs Now, however, to resume the subject to be discussed, it being impossible for me to fully cover it to the extent that it should be, but I will try. Hawaii—Land of Songs, land of dreams and vacationing spot for millions. A place everyone longs to visit and those who have are patiently awaiting another trip. I think I can be safe in stating that anyone who has visited these isles was never disappointed. Resorts, beaches, pineapples and sugar cane fields all are within command of anyone. Lovely flowers, thick green tropical foliage and extinct craters present a very contrasting scene to the visitor and the horticultural habits of the natives is indeed worth observing. I have taken snapshots of all my travels through the Islands and I have tried to make It a very thorough travel. The rural life is picturesque and quaint, of interest to any traveler. However, the city of Honolulu is indeed a storehouse of facts and customs which can be stirred up by anyone at least a little interested. Honolulu is a city of incredible modern conveniences and size on an island among so many native folks. However, with the coming of the navy base and American business, as well as other big business concerns, it seems very much American to the casual visitor. Currency, newspapers, radio broadcasts and general spoken language of the city is English; but this is made a very outspoken fact when one learns that over 70 per cent of the inhabitants of the city and nearby places is composed of natives, Japanese or Chinese. The native, it is true, has his own radio program, his own language and his own news; however, it isn't as prevalent as one would expect. Historical places, statues, and an array of buildings, old and new, complete the bird's eye view of the city. With shoppers, business men. messengers, etc. on the street It seems a very industrious and Important city.' A suburb of the city is Waiklkl wherein lies the well known resort and beach of the same name. A veritable storehouse of treasures and knowledge, this city can only be judged by those very well acquainted with it, but in the language of a visitor I would say that it is fascinating and very understandable. Insistent is the hot, sultry climate which prevails over the Is- Inad and this fact alone In enough to make one remember he is In n tropical belt where bananas, bread fruit, papaya, pineapple, etc. grow freely. A very beautiful spot it is. However, my personal view of it lies only in the direction of it as n vacation land. Nice to visit, wonderful to talk about, amazing to see, but after that its appeal to me seems to wane. So in these short paragraphs I have tried to cover an inexhaustible subject and place of Hawaii, but I do hope it has been of little value nnd has given a sufficient view to let you get an idea of it, anyway Homeward bound from here and the U. S. will certainly look very sood after eight weeks of sea an; salt water. ORVAL HAINES.
