(cr1Eis the God Lono," said the Hawaii ans when Captain Cook landed on their islands in 1778. A temple was built to him - luscious tropical fruits that no Englishman had ever tasted before were served him-runners from distant isles brought him the gifts and homage of kings. Today Hawaii is the same "emerald set in a sapphire sea." Green palms still fringe the blue ocean. The surf still breaks white on the coral sands. Bronzed natives still ride the surf-Hawaii is still the land of poignant music and of ex quisite hospitality. Hawaii is easily within your reach. Every week perfectly appointed Matson liners leave for the Islands on an admirably planned tour lasting twenty-one days. Twelve to fourteen marvelous days at sea! Eight days of ever-increasing wonder, pleasure and admiration. Three weeks of vacation incomparable. lEverything has been attended to for you.
