jTHE NA PALI
Py J. M.
One hundred and thirteen enthusi
astic excursionists were finally
rounded up for the "Round the Is
land Trip" by the Kinau last Sat
urday. They came from all parts of
the Island, ull the way from Wai
mea to Anahola. Lady school teach
ers were much in the majority, keer
to see and know everything possi
ble about the island keen also for
anv kind of n novel experience.

full of Enthusiasm and Hope
A special invoice of camp chairs
had been ordered lor the trip and
every one of them was held at n
premium, lined up on the land waul
side ot the deck, and everyone was
soluble with delight over the beau
tiful day and the Miionth sea, and
the confident assurance that she
"wouldn't be sick." Some had never
been and surely th.y wouldn't he
on a fine trip like this.
Many Lost Interest and
Hut when the steamer 'oundeJ
the liKht-house point, and struck
the northerly swell, the confident as
surance began to weaken somewhat,
and some precipitably fled to their
rooms and were seen no mnri, while
those that remained began to look
on life more seriously, the smile
' faded from many a happy fats and
a prayer-meeting expression of grav
ity and piety followed, which in turn
deepened to the despair of a lost
srul. In vain you pointed out the
beauties of the receeding shore, the
Ahukini landing, the dairy, the YVai
lua river, the Kapaa homesieaJs,
etc. "Oh, I wish I had staid home!"
or ' Let me alone, I'm sick! ' was
the only response they wo.iH mike.
Much of Interest and Beauty
As a matter of fact it wasn't
rough, but. there was, as usual, some
what of a swell. To those who did
not mind this, it was an interesting
trip from the beginning and Uc
moving pmorama before them was
one of much beauty, with the deep
blue foregound of tne sea, the em
erald greens of the middle distance,
and the violets and purples of tne
misty mountain background Some
regretted that the mountain peaks
were not clear, but from an artistic
point of view, the misty purples were
to be preferred.
A Vain Appeal
The lunch bell was a welcome
sound to some, but to the ui ijority
it was only an exasperating remind
er of better things ashore, wafted to
them in a nightmare of horror... A
very few ladies and about twice as
many men braved the descent to the
dining saloon and saw the meal thru
to the very end.

leisurely disnosed of, much of ail
ihti-resiin;: coast linn slid silently
by. Keuii.i, Anahola, Aloloaa, etc.,
und tne more picturesque and bolder
region was looming up. Kahili land
ing, thu little island or Alokuaeae,
th". most northerly of our island
territory. Kalihi-wai, Kalihi-kai, Wa
nini, le., q'.iiekly came and went.
The shivuded beauties of llanaloi,
and the mighty pali wall of Waini
ha. all veiled in drifting mists, drew
everyone's attention, and it became
evident that there had been much
rain, so that the streams were run
ning full and manifold waterfalls
threaded the mountain sides in ev
Filled With Wonder
These beautiful waterfalls increas
ed in number and we entered upon
the Napali region and formed a very
unusual special attraction to that
most imposing coast. As we drew
near to this picturesque region, the
climax of the whole arip, even the
most helpless and miserable of those
who had gone into set lusion, crept
out on the deck for a short time
and spent the time in alternate ex
clamations over the wonders of na
ture, nnd of woe over their own
internal condition, and then shortly
crept back to suffer in silence and
alone. Fortunately these afflicted
ones were few in number, and even
they declared that it was worthwhile.
Fantastic Records of Erosion
The Napali coast consists of a
long range of lofty precipitous cliffs,
whose bases are washed by the
surge ot the broad Pacific, and whose
crests are lost In the clouds above
at an altitude of 3,000 feet or more.
Ages ago, presumably, they were
craggy, ragged bluffs, but during the
ages the waters of erosion have
wrought a wonderful work of high-
relief carving on their faces, so
Jr.it there are countless deep-set ra
vines, with here and there veritable
albys. cutting far into the center
of the mountain mass. On this oc
casion everyone of them was run
ning its little stream of white water
Turreted Minarets Lost
in the Clouds
The most unique section In the
picturesque beauty was the turreteiM
luttresses that ran up from the
iiase und then feathered out into
spines at the top. In tho late after
loon sun these buttresses caught
he light on their edges bo that they
Uood out like rays of yellow-green
old. In spite of the fact that tho
whole Is a rocky face, It was covered
with a thin veil verdure, just sub
stantial enough to give it an added
element of beauty.
Uninhabited Valley Solitudes
The main valleys, once inhabited,
are Ilana-ka-piai, Hanakoa and Ka
lalau, none of which are now per
manently inhabited. Besides there
are seveial smaller ones between,
with permanent streams, and small
pockets of bottom land.
Three Cheers for the
Prince of Kalalau
I say none of these valleys ' are
permanently inhabited, which per
haps should be corrected tentatively.
There is just at present a German
hermit in Kalalau, a lover ot nature
and of music, and the simple life,
who proposes to live there perma
nently, having secured a ten year
lease of the government land there.
On the chance ot his being home
Captain Gregory gave him a long
blast whistle salute, and we gave
three cheers for the Prince of Ka
Famous Places In Ancient History
Evanescent glimpses were caught
of Honopu cave or grotto cutting
thru the over-arching bridge, and
connecting these two charming lit
tle sand beach bays; of Nualolo
with its natural landing and fine
sand flat backing; and of Milolii
with its fine stream and ideal camp
ing ground. These are all famous
places in ancient history.
"The End of a Perfect Day" !
All too quickly we slid by this '
wonderful region and left it behind
for the sand dunes of Poliliale and
Mana, and later still, the cane fields
of Kekaha. ,
About dusk we reached Waimea,
where mo.it of tho crowd disembark-
ed, preferring un auto and terra
firma, to the Kinau and the rolling
deep. TIij rest went, on to Koloa
which they reached un hour or so
A Rt.spertfui Sug ;e3tion.
V, hope that an annual trin of
l il'ie t'ii'l may become a fixed tra-
diCoa of tho luter-Island program.
We would, however, suggest that in-
stead of making the circuit of the '
i.dand the direct trip be made from
Waimea to Hanena or Hanalei and
buck the same way. This would
tike a good deal less time, and
would be a saving of coal presum
ably; would relieve the passengers
of several hours of thut rough trip
10 thu windward which very few
appreciate, un,j most of all would
(,'Ivo them a double chance to see
11 nd enjoy that for which they real
ly come, the Napali coast.

KOLOA Hl-Y INVADES
THE BARKING SANDS
By JOHN TACHIBANA
The Hi-Y Club of Kola had a four
day's camp at the Barking Sands.
The boys started from Koloa on
Dr. Waterhouse's truck at 3 p. m.
Yells and songs were led by our
talking machine, George M . The
noise was kept up until the invaders
reached the Barking Sands. At about
6 p. m. the boys reached their des
tination. Everyone worked and the
tent was ready in a few minutes.
The cook, K. C. C, fed the camp
ers with bread and cocoa for sup
per. About 10 a. m. the gang began
to say that they were hungry and
their common expression was, "Only
bread and water for supper, me too
much hungry." But by 11 o'clock
the camp was very quiet.
The cook woke at 6 and prepared
breakfast. After breakfast the hunt
ers went duck hunting and later
came home with three victims. With
story telling and eating the remain
ing hours were passed. The next day
the campers went fishing and young
mullets were served for two meals.
Later the boys made up two teams
and played Indoor baseball. John
hurled for Kiyoshl Tanaka's Braves
and Take Tao's Padooks had a string
ot whlrlers including such men as
James Padook Kiyonaga, Tashima
Boy and Cato. Both teams played
well, but the final score stood 22
to 25 in favor of of the Tanaka
Braves. Iky Brandt, Cato Yamada,
and Tashima Boy played well for
the losers. Y. Miyahara, George Mai
le, and Jiro, the silent, were the
mainstays of the winners. ,
Early Thursday morning the boys
started out for goats.. They divided
into two groups, one led by Yoka
zoo Yamasata and the other by
Cat0 yamada. The two groups separ-
ated and chosa different hunting
grounds. The Yokazoo company was
fortunate enough to kill five goaU.
f30 Miyake, the "Strongforl" of tho
dub, was almost killed in a fight
with a big black billy. Iky came to
tno rescue and he gave the billy
a nlt which killed the billy and
there was Iwao with a happy smile,
The hunters were without food for
twelve hours. On their way back
tliey bought a watermelon for 25
cents which came from the pockets
of two of the dying hunters. They
reached camp safely and helped i
themselves with food and drink.
The Cato company went through
n,a,,y harshll'8 a,s' Tne hunters
covered at least 20 miles over very
rough country and when they reach
ed the end of the valley an inter
esting Incident happened. Tho boys,
being very tired, decided to climb
a ridge and go homa in that man
ner. Joe Ryan volunteered to guide
the hunters. He went up little by
little while the boys waited tor fur
ther notice from Joe. He had much
difficulty la climbing and at times
he wept. Visions of his home, ot his
sweetheart, caused him to stop and
think of the dangers that he was
undertaking. Heroism conquered him
and he finally reached about five
feet to the summit. The rocks above
were lose and in some places they
stood straight up. Joe decided to
live a day longer and hesitated to
risk his life in the final climb for it
and was very hard to get to the
summit. He signalled the boys bo
low to come up if they pleased. One
came and the rest followed like
lame ducks. Babies of the company
like James Padook, Silent Jiro, and
Fish Tanaka were shedding tears.
VJoe Ryan came down and met them
halt way because it started to rain.
He led the rest safely down the
dangerous cliff. On the way down
the youngsters began to yell, "If I
make you pay, Joe Ryan." Every
thing was O. K. when we reached
home. Our assistant photographer,
Miyahara, took several pictures on
the way to the cliff and back. The:
boys estimated that the cliff that
Joe climbed was about 1000 feet.
The next day was an eating and 1
resting day. Goat meat, fish, canned '
goods, ducks, herrons and rice were
served in abundance. Tao ate fifty
crackers, five pounds of meat, ten
fish, five bowls of rice and three
cups of cocoa, and was awarded
with the Croix de Guerre. The boys
went swimming in the afternoon
and Iky demonstrated that 'he was
a fine swimmer on dry land and
that In a few years he hoped to be
in Duke's class and he certainly
will it sitting on a rock Is the road
to proficiency. That night the boys
planned not to sleep and it was
called the "No Sleep Night."
Friday, being our usual meeting
night, the president called a meet
ing. Interesting speeches were given
by the members on the value of a
Hl-Y club and some on camping as
a whole. Yells and words of thanks
were given for our advisor, Dr. Wat
eihouso. Meeting adjourned at 8
About 8:30 o'clock we hiked to the"
sand hills. Debates and story telling
were carried on mntil midnight. We
reached our tent about 1:00 o'clock
and spent the rest of the time play
ing hot hand and pillow fights. Some
tried, to go to sleep and they were
always reminded by a cup of wat
er down their backs, and faces. We
had our breakfast beside our camp
fire at 5 a. m. By 6 we had broke
up camp and were headed home.
It was a noisy, happy crowd that
reached Koloa at 9 a. m. Goodbyes
wore said, the boys all agreed that
they had enjoyed the outing and
hoped some time in the future they
could try it again.
