hawaii Home of Tear ''oundSports , There are famous golf coursestoday where the ancient Ha waiian chiefs played Maia-a a kind of bowls. With mar velous skill, a small lava stone disc was bowled between two uprightsticks. The best playerswere said to bowl over 1i0yds. FIVE days beyond the Golden Gate, the Ha waiian Islands lift their crests of misty jade above a sparkling sea. Five nights away, the orange moon floods Manoa Valley with its spell-the long combers creaming on Wai kiki's bar race shoreward. Here every sport is at its best-swimming in limpid waters, golf, tennis, polo, horse back riding, motoring through scenery that is unmatched anywhere on earth. Go now to Hawaii.
