Transcript Volume IV The Hawaiian Language At sea, 24 April 1937 SEE AND KNOW HAWAll Number XVII HAWAll is a modern, bustling " Paradise of the Pacific." For those who have never visited the Islands there are many points of interest. and you will enjoy visiting them. Take pictures as you go. By taking pictures you have a fine history of your cruise in the Navy and on the HOUSTON. THE ISLAND OF MAUl Just as in any other part of the United States, English is the lang­uage spoken in the Territory of Ha­waii. However, an understanding of some words and phrases of the Ha­waiian language is of interest. The Hawaiian alphabet consists of twelve letters as follows: A, E, H, I, K, L, M, N, 0, P, U, W.

( Continued on Page 2.) Happy Hour Scheduled For Saturday Evening, 1 May The date has been set for the Hous­ton's Hawaii Happy Hour as next Sat­urday evemng, 1 May, at 1900. with the knowledge that we prob­ably will be at anchor for a week at Lahaina Roads, it has been pos­sible to make plans for a night of entertainment by and for the ship's complement at the end of the coming week. A combination of musical, athletic, and dramatic talent is ex­pected 1,0 come to the front for this gathering, and all hands are invited to take part in or at least criticize the show. The latest addition to plans for the athletic part of the program is a spar bout, although set­t. ng up necessary gear for this may prove too complicating. In any case, variety will be the big feature of the evening and surprises should not be lacking. There are eighteen states that pay less Federal income than Hawaii. The Kilauea volcano is far less ac­tive than Mauna Loa. This volcano ended a war in 1790 by destroying one of the armies. I would rather be able to appre­ciate things I cannot have than to have things I cannot appreciate. - Elbert Hubbard. There are many interesting as well as strange things about this group of i61ands. :::. tOl'; es you hear about them seem to conform very well with the things you see but they differ in many respects. The question of just how the Hawai­ian Islands were formed is not known. Some say that they are of volcanic or; gin, the new islands being those in the south and the oldest those in the northwest. That is, the island of :~ awaii is the newest and the island of Maui the oldest. On the other hand, the Army engineers claim that they are not volcanic at all, that they lie in a huge " fault belt," and that they y; ere ready to emerge at the slightest provocation. Then apparently, one day along came a nice gentle earthquake ( not a volcanic eruption) and pushed the islands up out of the water. Maybe they all came up at once- no one really knows. Missionaries, who seem to get a­round quite a bit, also got to the island of Maui in the early days. The most lasting of their earl efforts still re­main in the form of a church which has been standing well over a hundred years. There is a naval base at Lahaina, the only town of any importance on the island. This base, Lahaina Roads, is not actually a harbor, the ships be­ing- forced to anchor in the lee of the island. The town consists of one street ( on both sides) along which are 10- ( Continued on Page 4.)
