SHAWAII in WINTER ... Fashion 's Newest Fac Christmas in the South Seas! Hawaii's Winter Season beginning now in Autumn, and lingering until the night-blooming Cereus heralds the approach of lovely Summer, centers a brilliant period about the Yuletide holidays... Tonight the Southern Cross shimmers on the horizon...touches with the wand of wonder sophisticates from Europe and America... They have been drawn by oft-told tales of social smartness in the fascinating fringes of the tropics... tales of Christmas Carols pulsing in pure Hawaiian cadence under a velvet, star-lit sky... tales of rare delight in the Land Where Winter is only a Name. Hawaii in Winter is Glorious With Color. Blue waters are tinged with shades stolen from the skies ... Folds of fluffy mists don the crimson glow of sunset... then pile the heavens with mosques of pearl and star-crowned minarets ... The dark of great groves of coco-palms marches down to spangled surf and sands silvery in tropic moonlight... There is laughter and the throb of vibrant ukulele . . . the sigh of the scented sea. Hawaii's Islands are Magic Lands ... Smart cars tread the shaded aisles of native villages... climb verdant mountains to pause at the marvel of mighty panoramas ... dip into exquisite valleys to emerge by painted beach where outrigger and surf-board vie in the creamy froth of lazy combers .. . Old Kona on the Island of Hawaii intrigues with absorbing glimpses into the romantic past. Maui with cloud-swathed mountain tops ... Kauai with gorgeous canyons reflecting the tints and shades of glorious Hawaiian sunsets. Go For Christmas, Stay for Spring. The end of the rainbow is only a few days away, arched over the sun-smoothed Pacific. Proud liners are waiting to whisk you from Winter's rudeness to the pulsing joys of perpetual Spring. Great hotels sparkle in Continental grandeur, yet glow with the soft warmth of Hawaiian hospitality. Luxury takes on new meaning in a pastel-painted world.
