The salute of 21 guns fired in the palace yard as the procession moved off is the "highest honor that can be paid to any person. '' , , ' It was shortly before 11 o clock that the procession started; an im posing scene as group after group found Its way into line, headed by Capt Robert Parker, Waipa, recog nized leader of many a parade.

Readv for Task The lonk. long line of poolas, two abreast, too long to extend straight out into King street, had turned and re-turned in the broad roadway that leads out . from . the palace yard. Suddenly from the lanai of the palace building singers of the Young People's League struck up Llliuoka lani's own song -"Aloha Oe.M Never had it -held such signifi cance to .those .who heard it,; never with deeper feeling, It' seemed,' had it been-sung. Tears sprung to the! eyes of strong men who stood In waiting. National Anthem Played Deeply Impressive, too, were the notes of the "Star Spangled Ban ner," played just previously by the 2nd Infantry band, and a little later "Hawaii Ponot," the anthem of Ha wall. As the last of that section of the rnfosinn yorecedine the catafalaue t.Mi bv the King street gate, the j poolas at th'e catafalque ropes, head ed by a little boy, marched in stately column -through the gate. Salute' of 21 Guns . As the black and , white draped catafalque moved off behind these 204 stalwart men, the salute of 21 guns, fired by a battery of the 1st Field Artillery rfrom the roadway between the palace and the library, began. This was Battery D, commanded by Capt B. Frankenberger, with Ueuts. F. J. Cory and Walter Malone. The four guns fired in succession at in tervals of one minute each, making a total of 21 minutes for the entire '"salute. "-' '.'
