HAWAII CALLS T HE call of Hawaii is the song of the South Seas bidding you"Come. "It sings of beaches silver under a tropic moon . . . of smart hotels in settings of coco palms .. . of kingly moun tains in rainbow robes. It tells of a land that knows no winter ... of a Christmas Day whose reds and greens are living flowers scattered in reckless profusion against a verdant carpet stretching from sea to sky. The lure of a climate free from extremes has made the Island Paradise unique among winter resorts. Eager sun-seekers have established a Winter season beginning in Fall and running through Spring. Tonight, little groups of the advance guard are lolling on palm-fringed shores or sporting in starlit waters. Voices that have echoed at Deauville and Cannes blend with soft Hawaiian cadences on broad lanais overlooking the sea. Make your plans now.
