Sprtn oes oGf auc tot goreoLS So t. Sea Iov M ID-AFTERNOON on a broad veranda. Coco palms nodding in a South Sea breeze cast moving shadows on a velvet lawn. A brown-eyed sprite, barefooted and bedecked in blossom-leis glides out of the shade and pauses where the sun breaks through. From a low-throated ukulele comes a vi brant strum like a warning note. Suddenly the echo is caught by the pulsing lilt of steel guitars. In weird grace the immobile figure slowly swings into the lithesome movements of the Hawaiian hula. The wild ecstasy of the tribal dances of old Hawaii, the sobbing of their music which tells of winds in forest branches, the moan of surfs on coral shores, plaintive loves confessed to a tropic moon, lend a glamour to the Paradise Isles which grows with every visit. Today in flower-scented groves, thrilled by the drama of ancient days enacted in fairyland settings, are many who return winter after winter. Their reluctance to leave and the bene diction of a climate which carries its cool de lights to summer's climax, is responsible for extending the Winter season into Spring. May Day, which is Lei Day in Hawaii, finds the season at its height. Arrange to go now. Great liners that defer to none in luxury and service make the trip over' sun-smoothed seas in from four to six days from the four gateways of the Pacific. There's no need of passports or other formalities. Hawaii is part of the United States -as much so as your own state. Hawaii Tourist Bureau (HONOLULU, HAWAII, U. S.
