Transcript Volume VI, Number 2. Pearl Harbor, T.H. 9 April, 1938. Island Of Oahu Offers Many Attractions Most of the people back home would give their eye teeth to be in Hawaii. In your shoes they would be running all over the Island of Oahu seeing the sights and snapping their cameras at everything and anything. You're here instead of them so make the most of this splendid opportunity. I hate to think of the lies you are going to write home concerning native life and the hula. You've got the folks there because they can't check up on you. However, if you go out and see some of the wonders of nature and glimpse a little of what the creator did out here you'll have some mighty good subject matter for letters. Here are some of the principal points of interest on Oahu: The Pali .... In only a few minutes drive from Honolulu one can see a cliff-like mountain pass where the wind blows continuously. Most of the time a person can not stand erect because of its dangerous force. Lastly, the spot is of vast historical interest. Doughty old Kamehameha with his warriors from Hawaii drove the warriors of Oahu over the cliffs to destruction. The Upside - Down Falls .... On the road to the Pali one sees a stream come pouring over a cliff, high above. But the wind as it comes sweeping down the canyon blows the water up and back against the cliffs so that no water ever reaches the spot directly below this strange waterfall. (Continued on page 4.) Happy Hour A Huge Success Under tropical mellow skies and the lights of the quarter deck the happy hour started, ran through its repertoire of acts, then ended. But from the very beginning, the entire ship's company became infected with that contagious spirit of everybody wishing to "Hosanah" and make merry at the same time. So it was a howling, rip roaring success that had all hands either busting their abdomens with peals of glee or up on their toes pulling for their favorites. "Sweet Adeline" and "Blue Hawaii" sang by all hands started the ball rolling. After these songs were sang touchily and with much feeling, everybody settled back and watched the sp?,r bout contestants commit murder, mayhem, and all the rest on each other. Out of the fracas emerged 6 winners. Santiago, officer's cook, tickled a mean banjo for the lads. Then a call went out for division monkeys, and in less time than it takes to tell McClure of the "2nd", closely followed by Salmon of the "A", had scuttled up the rope in the fast time of 4.3 seconds. (Continued on page 4.) • History of Hawaii The Hawaiian group are a number of small islands that were more or less promisciously dropped off there in the middle of the Pacific Ocean to form what is known all over the world as "The Garden of the Pacific", "Emerald Isle of the World", and various other names. They are included in a group that is now the property of the United States, officially known as the Territory of Hawaii. The territory includes 8 islands that are from 4030 to 4045 square miles in area, and extend in a line that runs roughly north west for 390 miles. In 1778 a famous English adventurer named Captain Cook came upon the Islands in the course of his ramblings over the face of the earth and named them the Sandwich Islands in the name of the British government. When he returned to them a year or so later, in need of repairs for his ship, the natives, remembering that he had treated them very severely the year before, set upon him and some of his crew, killing them, while the rest made a- way, glad to leave there with a whole skin. The famous King Kamehameha I, who's statue adorns the lawn of the old palace and present capitol building in Honolulu, defeated the many other chiefs of the islands and established a dynasty that ruled with absolute monarchy until 1840. It then was made over into a constitutional monarchy, and so remained till Queen Liliuokilani attempted to return to the old absolute monarchy and to re-establish the old religion that had been unsatisfactory to her predecessors.
