Hilo's Fair Has
Made Good Start
Will Be Held on New Kuliio Bay Wharf
Plans For Civic Convention Also
(Special to Maui News)
Hilo, April 18 Now that the invita
tions to attend the Fifth Civic Con
vention have been sent out and the
acceptances are pouring in by ev
ery mail, the directors feel confident
that there will be a big gathering
of delegates in Hilo on September
21, 22, 23, 24 and 25 this year.
Valuable suggestions have been re
ceived from the heads of many civic
organizations and these are being
taken up by the directors. Chaiinian
William McKay is working hard on
the proposition of the subjects to be
handled at the convention and he
has several schemes that will be an
nounced in the near future.
The number of delegates which ev
ery organization is invited to send to
the convention is unlimited.and the
more people who attend the big gath
ering, the more pleased the people
of Hilo will be.
Matters relating to the Second
Hawaii County Fair, which is to be
held at the same time as the Civic
Convention are going ahead well,
and now that it has been decided to
hold the Fair on the Kuhio Bay
Wharf, intending exhibitors are get
ting even more interested in the
show. They now feel that they will
be able to send far more exhibits
and to have them displayed in better
shape than if a smaller place was
chosen as the location of the Fair.
Dr. Elliot, chairman of the County
Fair committee, has made up the
lists of exhibits that will be asked
for. The lists are comprehensive
and cover pretty well everything
that is grown, manufactured or bred.
There will also be exhibits of any
nature that will interest office and
business men, as it is planned to
have displays of all kinds of short
cuts to efficiency in business life.
Judging from the interest shown in
the coming Fair and Convention,
there should be a huge crowd of
county folk and visitors from the
other islands in Hilo on the morn

ing of September 21. Civic bodies
need not worry about Ihere being any
limitation as to delegates, as there is
none. Hilo wants to see the largest
gathering of Island folk possible on
September 21, and Hilo knows ex
actly how (tie visitors will be wel
comed and entertained.
