at Kealia. About noon Monday
the Governor sent wirelesses to
these three parties, informing them
that no courtesies could be accept
ed by the Governor's party while
on Kauai. The messages were in
quite polite terms and assured the
recipients that no discourtesy w.is
intended At the same time an
other wireless came through which
engaged rooms and accommoda
tions at the Fairview Hotel, Lihue,
for the entire official crowd.

This write-up, it may be explain
ed, was by a reporter of the Adver
