YOU CAN RELY ON GQODYEARS
Here, at the cross-roads of the Pacific, the
motoring conditions soon test the innermost
worth of a tire.
One hour, the motorist is spinning along a
smooth road that borders the sounding surf;
the next, he is forging along silent mountain
trails that try the endurance of the toughest
tread and the stoutest wall.
It is in service like this that Goodyear Cord
Tires give the very best account of the
strength that is in them.
Their All-Weather Tread, famous on every
roadway the world around, demonstrates a
tractive power and a non-skid quality that
insures swift headway and complete security.
Their special Goodyear construction of car
cass and tube enables them to resist the
hardest wear for thousands of miles.
Their rugged ability to take and withstand
punishment makes them the preferred tire
wherever driving conditions put a premium
on untroubled, dependable performance.
Your local Goodyear Dealer is a reliable
business man. Ask him what records Good
year Tires are making in Hawaii, and let
him tell you about the sincere Goodyear
Service behind these splendid tires.

Hello, friends of Radio Land!
Radio fans of Hawaii were ask
ed Inst Saturday evening by Rio
de Janerio, Brazil, to try and pick
up their high power broadcasting
station. No one seems to have been
successful this time.
But, we are glad Rio knows that
we hold many long distance receiv
ing records In Hawaii, but request
ing us to pick up their voice and
music from over 8000 miles away
was a little too much for us.
While tuning for Ilio the editor
succeeded in picking up a piano se
lection from 2X1, the General Elec
tric broadcasting station at Schenec
tady, New York, something like 7,
000 mllea away. Watch out, Bio,
we'll gft you yit.
Well, folks are you working for
the receiving set to be given away
by thi:i large and enterprising news
paper? The wivner will be a lucky
felli r. This little receiver picks up
Honolulu radiophone stations great
and the large stations on the coast.
Willie I am writing this, the Times
radiopl.one station of Los Angeles
is giving us a dandy concert. Won
derful singers, violin and orches
The Times station Is one of the
finest on the Pacific coast and giv
es you a wonderful program each
night. Folks better make that Xmas
present a radio set and listen In on
these artists playing for Radio Land.
They used to say that a good radio
amateur must have red hair, large
ears and a girl haters. No so any
more. If you have a good radio set
and can bring in those concerts
from Radio Land ,tho girls will like
you. Be sure and have an extra pair
of phones for her.
Some times we think it takes
queer stuff to fill this column, but
we like to tell you what we hear
out of the air, where to the oHmary
observer there Is nothing but clouds,
sunshine and sometimes rain and
things that fly.
If you can understand the wire
less code you get a bigger thrill to
hear the far off stations working.
We're going to run over into thu
next column and tell about a radio
A RADIO BUG
It looked almost human, In fact,
it looked like a boy well along In
his teens. Feverishly soldering and
resoldering numerous wires, It seem
ed to be assembling a number of
objects upon a shiny black panel,
all the time mumbling strange words
such as "Where's that rheostat?"
"I can't turn the condenser," and
mi on. Sometimes a sound that
seemed to signify Joy would be em
itted, and it would pause and survey
its work with a look of delight,
("nils to meals were Ignored, re
quests to go on errands were treat
ed in the same manner. Suddenly it
ceased operations and, in a voice
suppressed by emotion, exclaimed:
"Done! Gosh I hope It works." Wires
leading to batteries were quickly
connected and perched on the edge
of a chair with two round objects
adjusted over Its ears, began with
trembling fingers to turn and ad
just the various dials and kng)s on
the instrument. A look of incredi
ble wonder spreads over its face.
Then with eyes glowing with Jay
and success It leaps to its feet and
gives out a shout such as Columbus
might have uttered when he sighted
land. Whoops, its coming in great.
Music from KYZ two hundred miles
away. Someone singing from anth
er station. It begins to prance around
the room and its chest expanding
more and more.
Its identity is solved. It U Ra
Hawaii is always up to the miu
ute with its radio. The Mutual sys
tem has installed a new tube C.W.
transmitting set in the main office
in Honolulu and your radio messages
are now received and ser.t from the
office in the center of Honolulu,
insuring speeding service.
A question that has been asked
more times than can be remember
ed, "You only have wireless here.
You don't have radio, do you?"
Folks ot Radio Land, don't be mis
led. The same apparatus la used to
receive what you term radio and
also by wireless. There is no dif
ference, both are the same. When
you use a radio or wireless set y u
arc using the . identical appctrntus
that the operators .use to receive
messages with. Your radio will pick
up wireless just as easily as the

VALUE OF PINEAPPLE
PACK THREATENS TO
OUTSTRIP THAT OF SUGAR
Pineapple production for Hawaii
this year has brought a gross in
come of $2,ouo,o(iu into the terri
tory, or nearly half the amount of
the sugar crop, which is estimated
at $".1,500,000. It is learned author
itatively that thu production of
pines amounted to $5,000,000 cases,
which sold in excess of $4 each cusj.
With the increased acreage thu.
is proposed to be set out to pine
apples, this output may be raised
by fifty per cent and if all other
projects eventuate, it is estimali d
that the pineapple may equal, or
outstrip sugar - romiction.
