Seale THE TERRITORY OF HAWAII The history of Hawaii is as roman­tic as the spirit of the Islands. The Hawaiian group was discovered by Captain Cook, British Explorer who gave them the name Sandwich Islands. The Islands were named after the Earl of Sandwich, first lord of the British Admiralty. After Captain Cook's visit the influence of the white races rapidly altered native customs. King Kamehameha I ( 1782­1819), after bloody warfare, counseled by white men and with the aid of gun powder, united the Islands into one Kingdom. Permanent civilization fol­lowed the arrival of American mission­aries in 1820, although the pagan re­ligion had already been officially a­bandoned and many ancient " tabus" abolished. Quick to embrace Chris­tianity, the Hawaiians soon became ardent church goers and, naturally musical, enjoyed singing newly learn­ed hy~ ns. It was not until 1893, however, that rebellion overthrew the last of the Hawaiian monarchs ( Queen Liliuok­alani) and set up an independent Re­public. In 1898 the Republic of Hawaii vol­untarily annexed itself to the United States, and ever since 1900, when the Islands were organized as a territory, Hawaii has been an integral part of the United States. The Governor and Secretary of the Territory are ap­pointed by the President of the United States. The territorial legislature ( which meets biennially) is elective. Likewise chosen by popular vote is the Territory's delegate to the Con­gress in Washington. Citizens of Hawaii are full- fledged American cit-izens. - The Pelican THE BLUE BONNET " MA OVERBOARD" While everready heroism is an in­herent and expected quality of the American sailorman, we have just heard of a notable example which un­questionably deserves a Carnegie medal. After a really enjoyable winter evening in a foreign port, a seaman, returning to his ship, staggered up the gangway, only to lurch just as he was about to take the final step, and toppled into the icy ocean. Instantly the Boatswain's mate shrill pipe hur­ried all hands on deck, as the word " Man Overboard" was frantically passed. The lifeboats crew leaped to their perilous duty.. Searchlights sizzled and shot weaving beams of white into the black night. A shower of life buoys was flung over. But the gallant sailor in the water grasped the situation thoroughly, and was equal to it. From the darkness and splashing came his cheery confident guttural: Hey! Where'sh ish poor drowning guy? I'll save ' im." - Selected. OVER THE BROW Klarich, A D., Sea1c from Hospital. Kvach, C. D., Sea2c from Hospital. Jordon, R. G., FC1c from Rec. SNY. Masa, R, QM1c from USS Enterprise. Snowden, H.

NAVY SCHOLARSHIPS Judge Frank P. Douglas of Okla­homa has established 10 scholarships to be given annually to sons of officers warrant officers, and enlisted men of the U. S. Navy. The scholarships will be awarded by the Bureau of Navi­gation to those boys whose records in secondary schools have indic:: ted above average ability. Scholarships, student activities, and the necessity of assistance will be factors to be considered in making the awards. Each scholarship will be an award of $ 300 cash to be applied upon tuition in Randles School, 1923 N. Street, N. W., Washington, D. C., a well re­cognized naval academy preparatory school, and will be awarded each year to boys making application therefor.
