Transcript Volume V, Number 12. Lahaina Roads, Maui And Lahainaluna Coming to the island of Maui next week we will anchor in beautiful La­haina Roads. There the water is, nol' ­mally, as clear as any place in the world, and a person can follow the line of the anchor cable many fathoms down into the bright blue water. The first city that or- e encounters on going ashore is Lahaina. It is the principal city of the island and is where the sailor ashore spends a fair percent of his time. In connec­tion with this city, mostly due to its close proximity is the Lahainaluna Technical High School. It is reached by a road, gently ascending from the town, to a place about three miles in­land, and brings to view one of the most historical and most beautiful spots on the island. The Lahainaluna School, situated in a place affording a good view of the blue Pacific, and the islands of Lanai and Molakai, is steeped in tradition and famed for the good it has done the people of Maui. Many of Maui'~ agricultural and in­dustrial leaders cherish Lahainaluna as their alma mater. Lahainaluna was founded in the year 1831, having for its first building a grass hut. There were practically no funds available with which to better the conditions of the school, but the first class, consisting of some 25 mid­dle aged men, who, realizing the ne­cessity for educational advantages, built additional buildings and the pre_ sent road which leads to the town be­low. One of the original stone build­ings stills stands on the campus and ( Continued on paee Z.) At Sea Attacking French- Frigate- Shoals Ship's Service Supplys Super - Service The prices of malted milks and milk shakes have been reduced from 20 ets. to 15 cts. and from 15 cts. to 10 cts. respectively without reducin2' the size of either.

This procedure is an exper­iment to see if most of the crew de­sires individual packages. It is hoped that more of the personnel will take advantage of the new service in our laundry - individual packages for each man. Laundry prices are very reason­able - in fact the average laundry bill for an enlisted man should not aver­age more than $ 1.25 a month. It sure­ly is worth that amount to have your clothes laundered for you, bearing in ( Continued on paee •. ) March 29, 1938 Pie Eating Contest On The Quarter Deck The contest was held under the super­vision of Ens. Quackenbush and was attended by all who cared to come. That means that there was a goodly number of the ship's company present, and the catapult<' and flight deck were crowded to capacity. The divisions that were not represented were the fourth and the C& N, though Michau's name was given for the latter group. All entries were given a choice of their pie, and all took cream pies ex­cept the lad from the First Division, turret striker Gregory. He did a good job of trying but was at a disadvan­tage. ' Podner' Meadows of the B div. was at a disadvantage in that he al­ready had consumed a total of six cokes and two pies at the Ship's Ser­vice Store and was therefore quite filled already. Magee, entered on be­half of the A div., spilled a part of his pie on the table and some of the merengue on the deck. He did well. A­nother that tried the best he knew was ' Wolf' Vrooman of the R. Though he spilled his pie he carried on bravely to the end and finished in third place. He cleaned it all up, too. Perry, who stood up for the Marine Detachment did well till he lost his whole pie, tin and all, off the table and onto the deck. Lucky that the deck had been previously covered with tarpaulin. While all this had been going on, our friend Osborne, C. E., of the F division, was diligently eating away, downing the pie given to him, getting the fil­ling in his hair and eyes, but without a pause he kept on till nothing was ( Continued on paee 2.)
