ALGONA, IOWA, MARCH 5, 1931 Miss Taylor, who ia the eldest child of the Rev. and Mrs. F. C. Taylor,, formerly »f Alffona, now of Portland, Oro., has for the last two years been a teacher In the Mld-Paclflc Institute at Honolulu. The Institute conducts boys .and girls' boarding schools and. grammar and high school subjects are taught. By Naomi Taylor. Honolulu, Jan. 30—Life here le much the same, except that I miss some of the seniors of last year. After my return It seemed hard to have to get up at G again and eat breakfast at 6:45; but one soon gets accustomed to early hours, and I think I like It better than the public school schedule .on the mainland, for our working day begins at 7:30 a. m. and ends at'2:45 p. m. iUnless I'm on house duty (once In ten days) or have special work, I'm free for the afternoon and evening. I have a dormitory corridor again so dally Inspection of rooms for 24 girls Is part of my work. They,keep their rooms In such good condition that' the Inspection amounts to little. '.I teach four classes dally, three In , senior English, one In junior English, and have two free periods In which to give special help to stu- denta who need It. Since the English used In the homes of most of our students Is poor I find that their greatest difficulty Is limited vocabulary and lack of knowledge of ways in which to express themselves. , • Samples of Hawaiian Words. However, I am sure most of them do a great deal better than I could If I were trying to speak Hawaiian, Japanese, or Chinese. Common expressions to me mean nothing to them. But you try to use some of the ordinary words, such as mynah (a bird), pau (Hawaiian for through or finished), mauka'''and rriakai (for directions), and you see how even the simple language that applies here does not fit back there. I have the school library again. The work is not heavy, for I have two ,boys as helpers. Generally spend part of one of my free periods checking up books, and then etay in the library, an afternoon or evening a week: For the size of -our school we. have a fine library, 1500 volumes and 50 magazines. I have a ."hobby Club" too (reading). We have'spent some'time studying leading magazines and reading good books. .'.... Visit to Volcano Planned. The most exciting adventure I've had this year occurred Thanksgiving week-end. Perhaps you read reports about the eruption of ^Klleaua; vol cano on the island of Hawaii:- ; spent my Christmas vacation- loot year on that island, .within a few miles of the crater, roaming all about; so when reports came to Honolulu that Madame Pele (Hawaiian goddess of the volcano) was again displaying her art I was more than anxious to see her in action. 1 We spent days trying to decide whether to go for the week-end or wait till Christmas, when we could have more time. It was a good thing that we did go for a week-end, for within ten • days after pur trip all action ceased:. • • There Were 14 in our party, and besides plenty of thrills we had mighty good time. Fortunately the sea was unusually calm, so in spite of the'fact that the channel trip is mighty bad we managed to be pretty good sailors. The trip takes ovei night.; The 'moo'n was full • that week-end, and if a tropical moon is romantic when one is in good company, under swaying coooanut palms it is much more eo when one is on ship, gazing o.ut over a silver sheen 'of water and watching dark shapes of islands loom up and disappear Crater Five Miles Across. Kilea,ua }s a large, lake-like crater, or h'ole five miles or more across. In the center is the huge pit o'f Halemaumau, 3,000 feet across, 1,050 feet deep. A hike from the edge of the crater across .the old lava beds, (which form the floor of Kllea.ua crater) to the, rim of Hale- maumau covers three miles. I have made that hike several times, and have always found it interesting to note the different flows, some heavy, some Jight, spme porous, some coarse, some fine, some dark In color, some vather reddish. It is great fun- to stop and gather Pele's "hajr"—lava .which Js like spun glass, having been carried by wind In fine threads while still hot; also tQ gaze* into bottomless earthquake cracks which sometimes 'can not be Jumped; to look down into holes Where tbe upper crust of lava has given away, showing that under the very place where one stands there If a. layaTjn&cle tunnel! to watch steam rtee from many vents. At Thanksgiving time I made a on which I was forced to re- ajjze the hugeness of the pty 0* HWemaunmu. I walked around the pit two mile? or more, sometimes over Java that looked like bard sand, sometimes scrambling over rough Java • «H3kj, sometimes Bracks 'or detourlng ar' sometimes along the SW» 'Of the rjnj, gazing at molten jaya ibejow ajn.« marveling and aeato ft "' H. J. Edens CIOUX CITY MAN, once an Algonian, who tells an Interesting story ^ concerning the late A. D. Clarke, first head foreman of the Yeoman. Mr. Men a story, clipped from the Yeoman Shield, appears elsewhere in today s Advance. The picture accompanied the story and was lent to the Advance by the Shield. looks like a speck; also that before this eruption began the floor of the pit was 1,050 feet below the rim. There are no railings along the edge (except ropes around on ledge), so one can get as near as he wishes to look over and down. Since I'm rather fearful on precipices and the edge of Halemaumau is worse than any precipice, for many times It may be simply a shelf undermined for some distance back and down, I did not stand too close unless I had someone to hang on to rather firmly. The floor of the pit as I saw It at Christmas time a year ago when It was dead, was black, with lines here and there, the cracks of the last activity; also there were tracks all over the hard, dry, mud-like surface, as if some giant had strode around —scars left by small fountains of lava during the last activity. l«!iva Spurts and Bubbles. . This time we could'see a spurting, bubbling mass, we could feel.. ,J;he heat and smell keenly " sulphuric fumes carried up in a 1 reddish--vvhlte cloud, and see red-hot •• boulders which tumbled out from a grotesque mouth. . . .. The black, dead-looking floor surface of a year .before now. had become marked by. criss-crossed lines which glowed brilliant red. . Sometimes the line wou.ld be faint and narrow; but Instantly/the red glow would widen out; Red lava seemed 'always eating away the black, dead floor around and above it. Sometimes it would spread out over the black, ae a muddy river pours over Its banks; but while it resembled a river in that respect It was much more terrifying, for it burned a vivid, angry red all the time, Fountain Plays in Pit. Over at one aide red-hot lava was spouting up as a fountain -plays, the stream shooting 100 to-150 feet in air. Sometimes all of the hot mass would 1 tumble back within banks, or, now and again a great portion would fall on the surrounding . walls. Sometimes a email portion would slop over the walls and roll down the sides like red-hot coals. It was an interesting spectacle in the daytime, but at night it was fascinating, uncanny, unreal, grotesque In horrlblenesa. ' For hours I gazed at It. f It Is a common occurrence to see pudding boll and bubble on a stove, but to eee the earth a live mass of red-hot mixture surging up and down Is most unnatural. Big K Soare for Spectators. Only*once was I afraid. I had been standing for hours before I got up courage to sit on the rim. Though we are in the tropics the nights are sometimes raw.and cold, so we were sitting wrapped snugly In blankets, more than 300 of ue. Suddenly there came a muffled' rumbling • Inside the crater. There was a death-like 'hush over all, then with one accord we 'followed the law of self-preservation, getting x 1 away from the edge as quickly as possible.- It was a panic of scrambing: ..I thought we never would get untangled from blankets. I crawled on my hands and knees 50 feet before I came to my senses enough to get up and run. My first thought was that the volcano was going tp -erupt over'all of us. Others thought .the •ledge was being shaken and- expected to find themselves- rolling into the pit. '. Well, when we got a safe distance from the rim we- were so --badly frightened that -we could hardly stand. I was trembling ; all over, so frightened that our group went-back to the cars to rest. •' - •'• • Vacation Amusements. During vacation we did many Interesting . things. Many times we went swimming. The water was cool but most invigorating. One. morning we got up at 5 and went down to see Japanese sampans bring in fish. We saw 200 to 300-lb. tunas, a large shark, and swordflsh. One of,, the ewprdfish weighed 1,000 Ibs. •''-'' •'•''•" Another morning we visited Luke Field, airport for the army --and navy. Still another morning we went 10 miles out to sea to watch an old, 6-masted sailing vessel put up her galls. Christmas Away from Home. I had dreaded being away from home again for Christmas, but I had a good time after all. The family sent me a real Christmas tree, decorations and all. I put my gifts under It and on Christmas morning open them as we do at home. Since I could not be at'home'to hang up a stocking the folks sent one of Dad's socke, stuffed with nuts, oranges, and apples. I had a good laugh out of that. Tomorrow ends the first half of :hls school year. Time goes quickly lere. Our "winter 1 has been unusually mild; few evenings when I could wear even a light wrap. The rainy season didn't come either. HUGH M'CUTCHIN VICTIM OF STROKE; MAY BE FATAL Wesley, Mar. 3 —'Hugh McCutchin suffered a stroke-.a week ago and has since been In a serious condition, but was reported slightly Improved Sunday, though since then he has grown weaker and can no longer take nourishment.
