Mr. Schoen becomingly, though
modestly, presented the keys of Ho
nolulu'' to the young woman, now
keenly alive to the happy time in
store for her while a dweller at
the Paradise of the Pacific.
"I was seasick for a few days after
leaving San Francisco," she reluct
antly admitted to a little group of
friends gathered on th$ Sierra deck.
"I tried several remedies, given me
before leaving, but really I am not
a very good eailor.
"The officers in this ship treated
me just awfully nice. They are just
fine. I certainly enjoyed every min
ute of the trip." - -
Miss Bennett sadly admitted that she
is 'expecting to return to San Fran
cisco' in the Sierra, that is to depart
for the Coast on Saturday noon.
"I da not wan to go back so soon.
I6n't there some way that I can fix
it so I can remain longer?"
A large new touring car was placed
at the .disposal of the winner in the
contest for the day. She was rather
undecided this morning whether she

Quickly and deliberately they sifted
the pile. Then came a pause. Before
them lay six photographs. The others
had been discarded. These six were
compared and analyzed. Then two
were left. Again came "the compari

to Miss Bennett.
Miss Bennett makes you forget.
She carries you away. You have no
idea of time. She has a soul the
yearning of which for big and
splendid things fascinates and holds
you. When you get through talking
with her you don't know whether she
is wearing a black or a red dress,
whether her nose is straight or
equiline. whether her mouth is large
or small. You just draw a long
breath and think, "Fine."

WASHINGTON. 1). C. Dec cj.;
The awarding of a" contract for con
. strncting five magazine buildings in
1 onnect:on with the defenses of Pear!
Harbor has created general rejoicing
among naval officials here. They de
clare that this is one of the last im-
portant steps in the direction of com
. pleting the preparedness of the great
naval base for attack.
; Officials of the department say the
i magazine buildings are the last of the
j important structures to be erected.
. or.. :
remain for future contracts. These
include the ice-house and some others
regarded . as of vastly lesser mometit
than the magazines.
The new buildings are thus official

foundations, one story, with wood
floors, steel columns, steel trusses,

at the closeness of the hids submit

The naval people are disposed to
lean back in their chairs and smile
cheerfully, as their task seems to be
nearing completion, while their breth
ren of the army have much arduous
labor before them.

daily seeking to ; devise means by
which additional funds may be secured

Miss McGiffin, had an entirely differ

SLe astounded the prosecution by in
