THE Hawaiian Islands were described by Mark Twain a s the '"loveliest fleet of islands that lie anchored in any


who wants to combine a vacation in

f t the USA with the feeling of being in a foreign place can not do better than to plan a holiday in Hawaii. Although the eight islands in the archipelago now make up the SOth State in the Union, Hawaii is a polyglot of many customs, cultures and creeds. Now as American as Kansas in August, Hawaii is, nonetheless, a hodge-podge of Chinese, Hawaiians, Filipinos, J apanese, Mainlanders and others, all of whom have clung to their racial heritage. Everyone, for example, knows it's spring when kimono-clad Japanese pay homage to the budding blossoms of the cherry tree; it's summer when the Buddhists begin their "hon" dances at the shrines; 4


oce an." Today, the e ight main is lands of the archipelago make up the SOth State in the Union

it's winter when the Chinese observe their New Year with parades and mandarin banquets. Getting around the islands is a simple affair, according to Pan American Airways which links Hawaii with the West Coast by Jet Clipper in five hours. Hawaiian Airlines, using Jet-Prop Convairs, offers a variety of flights to the outer islands. Aloha Week held in the fall in Honolulu and the outer islands, brings out all the savage splendor of old Hawaii. Balloons float down from the palms, fireworks light the skies, grass-skirted hula girls ride on floats piled high with orchids, hibiscus and frangipani . Festive tables are piled high with all sorts of exotic dishes-Japanese sukiyaki, Cantonese chop suey, Korean hot cabbage and the

great Hawaiian favorite-roast pig with red pep· pers and yams. Spectators stand knee-deep in orchids and con· fetti. Dancers perform the classical dances of Japan, the knife dances of Samoa, the dragon dances of China and the country square dances of America beneath the flickering light of the torch. Everywhere, the legends of old Hawaii are enacted against a background of coconut palms and green volcanic hills. Villages throughout the islands revive the old custom of the "hukilau," the community fish pull, for Aloha Week. A huge fish net fringed with leaves is tossed in a semi-circle in the bay, and everyone lends a hand to haul the big catch back to shore. When the tugging is over, it's time for the "luau," Hawaii's traditional feast, often served by moonlight. Main dishes on the menu include roast pork, raw and cooked fish, a variety of fruits and the clas ic poi, an elastic paste pounded from taro roots. The table is set with clay dishes, coconut shells and leaves and it's the fashion to eat with the fingers. Although the autumn is the gala eason in Hawaii, prices are no higher than at any other time of the year. What is more, the thermometer hugs 70-odd degrees summer and winter, so there is no peak season. Prices at any time are a matter of personal taste and budget. A room with bath, located just off the sands at Waikiki, runs as low as $7 a night, a drug-store-style breakfast is 50

cents, and a simple lunch is a dollar or so . In short, an allowance of $12 or $15 a day is adequate, indeed, in this land of palms and pineapples. Sun-seekers in search of a luxury or two will find that Hawaii has an assortment of frills to please the most fa stidious of travelers. Palatial new inns are burgeoning on th e coral reefs of the outer islands as well as along the Gold Coast at Waikiki. Maui, for example, is developing Kaanapali Beach, a three-mile sweep of white sand near the old Hawaii an capitol of Lahaina. Plans for this multi-million dollar project call for a dozen hotels, shopping center and yacht harbor. The last word in luxury, however, is the new 154-room Mauna Kea Beach Hotel on the north Kona coast of the "Big Island" of Hawaii. This many splendored resort, developed by Laurence S. Rockefeller, occupies some 500 acres leased from the vast Parker Ranch, 70 miles from Hilo. On one side, the Mauna Kea offers guests a view of the palm-fringed white sands, and on the other is the snow-capped volcanic peak towering some 14,000 feet into the tropi cal sky. Sports include swimming and snorkeling, golf on an 18-hole championship course, tennis, horseback riding, hunting, sailing and fishing off the Kona coast. The Polynesians, like their fellow seafarers, the Greeks, have a word for everything, and the word which means everything in Pacific game fi shing these days is "a'u." "A'u" is Hawaiian for marlin, and marlin's a fighting word in the lingo of every angler who has ever had th e king of the sea hit his hook and carry the line away like a high-balling express. Rare is the fisherman who can fail to be impressed and lured by the magnificent immensity of the 1,095 pound world record blue marlin recently caught in Hawaiian waters. This half-ton of tail-lashing fury, however, was merely one of the 21 world records for deep sea fish hooked off Hawaii. Just about all a fisherman need bring is himself and a jug of his favorite brew. Lunch and the use of all equipment is included in the charter fee, and no license is required.

straws usually determines who takes the fir st strike. And since charter boats usually drag at least five lines, odds on the action are better than even. What is more, Hawaii rises steeply from the bottom of the sea, so lines are set immediately after clearing the wharf. No precious time is wasted escaping the continental shelf typical of most islands. Deep sea fishing off Hawaii is se renely uncomplicated. Fishermen of ten play cards beneath a shady awning or tan themselves on the deck, while the vessel trawls. Reeling in the fi sh is the only effort necessary. The average marlin catch runs 200 to 300 pounds, but marlin are not the only big ones in these waters. Y ellowfin tuna which the Hawaiians call "ahi" are abundant, and the world record of 266 pounds was hauled in off Hawaii. Another fierce fighter is the " mahimahi," more

commonly known as the dolphin. Fishermen are undecided whether its clever acrobatics or succulently sweet flesh is its greatest asset. Mahimahi run to 70 pounds, but most weary fi shermen are thankful that the average catch is about 30 to 40 pounds. What on the Mainland is wahoo is "ono" in Hawaii, and "ono" in the Polynesian tongue refers to something good. That term's applicable to both the sledgehammer blow at a lure and the flavor of the flesh. Wahoo or "ono" is perhaps the best of all fi sh to make sashimi-raw, finely chopped white meat, seasoned with hot mustard and soy sauce. Most skippers are delighted to prepare a batch on deck. All fi shing is a gamble, and no skipper will guarantee a catch. However, it is encouraging to note that just this past summer one boat proudly flew five blue-and-white marlin flags in two days. 7

men, endowed with a combined total of more than 50 years experience in the freight business, joined together in late 1959 and early 1960, to form a partnership in a freight hauling business and have brought it to one of the leading freight companies in Arkansas. At the time Lawrence A. Megel, Sr. acquired all the stock in a company known as Atlas Tr ansit and Warehouse Company, Inc., which was in August, 1959, the company's headquarters were in Pine Bluff, Arkansas. In January, 1960, Emmett R. Gilmore purchased 50 percent of the stock in the company. Gross revenue for their first year in business was $50,000. It is expected to exceed $2 Million in 196 7. They began operating their company with three terminals in Pine Bluff, El Dorado and Little Rock, Ark ansas. Today there are 12 terminals in strategic locati ons throughout Arkansas and th ey have an interchange ar rangement at West Memphi s, Ark14

ATLAS ansas, to ser ve Memphis, Tennessee. In the beginning, they operated with eight trailers, three tr actors and five bobtail trucks. The fl eet now consists of 67 trailers, of whi ch 40 are Lufkins, 25 tractors and 25 bobtail trucks. Because of the rapid growth of the co mpany, the headquarter s were moved from Pine Bluff to Little Rock, at which tim e the name of the company was changed to Atlas Transit, Inc. Also Lawrence Megel resided form erly in Hot Springs, but because of the expansion, he moved to Little Rock. The Company is piloted by Lawrence Megel as

RANSIT INC. President. He had been in th e freight business more than 30 years prior to his purchase of Atlas Transit, Inc., serving as assistant general manager of another freight line for 22 years. Emmett Gilmore, secretary-treasurer and general manager of Atlas, has been in the freight business since 1940, taking four years out to serve in the Navy dur ing World War II. When the new Atlas company began operations, the terminal in Little Rock was a two-door building. Today, it is one of the most mod ern 30-door terminals in Little Rock.

When there is any free tim e away from th e business, both partners enjoy hobbies of boating and fi shing, and are avid fan s of the Univers ity of Arkansas Razorba c k s . Both are active in the Arkansas Truck and Bus Association and Megel is a past Secretary and Director of the Association. He is also a past President of the Association Transportation Club in Memphis, Tennessee. Mr. and Mrs. Megel have one son, L. A.

Did you hear about the Scotchman who was nearly pummeled to death because he thou ght the sign on the door read " Laddies? " " Judge, he promised to take me to Florida," the sweet yo un g thin g sobbed. " o I didn' t Jud ge, I said I was going to Tampa with her." Th e three old men met on the street corner and were di sc u ss in g their problems brou ght on by old age. The first s i ghed and said , "Well, you think you've got problems, but I'm goin g deaf and believe me there's just nothing worse." The second old man hook his head solemnly and spoke, " That's not half as bad as me. I'm losin g my eyesight and there's just nothin g worse than that." "Oh, I don't know," the third old fellow answered. " It seems that I'm losin g my mind and that's terrible. It's so bad now that I can't remember things anymore. Why the other ni ght, I walked my date to the door and she looked at me and said, 'Old man , you've had it' and yo u know I couldn't remember whether I had or not?" Uncle Buckle: "Luke, women these days are getting too fast to suit me." Luke : "Never thou ght you'd complain about that. What happened? " Uncl e Buckle: "I was takin g a census in our neighborhood, and a woman came to the door and said, 'Yes' and I didn't even have it on my mind." First Drunk: " Lesh take another drink and go find shum girls." Second Drunk: " Iaw, I've got more at home than I can take care of." First Drunk: " Lesh take another drink and go to your house."



An Englishman and an American were on a ship returning to America, and the American was berating the British and their way of life. " The trouble with you English," he ranted, " is that you stick together too much. Th ere should be more intermin gling. In my blood there's Ru ssian, Spanish. Greek and Italian." The Britisher looked up and said, "That was very sportin g of your mother." The boss of the night club has his six topless dancers listed on the payroll as bouncers. On wall in a mat er nity ward: " What Pill?" The subject of modern-day morality was debated with much ea rn estness between the yo ung lady and her date. The date maintained that it's possible to take advantage of a yo ung lady at will, whether she chose to permit it or not. Th e girl was firm in maintaining that such was not the case. Finally it was decided that the only solution to the question was by a practical demonstration. So they tried it and the battle was on. After a lively tu ssle, her date proved his point. The girl, however, showed an undaunted spirit. "Oh, well, you didn't win fair," she argued . "My foot slipped there on that ru g. Let's try it again." " I'm wearing this new bra call ed 'Square Dance Bra'." "What's a Square Dan ce Bra?" "A Square Dance Bra stays up beautifully no matter how frantic the fiddlin g gets." ew-style postcard from a sailor to his gal: " Having a wonderful wish. Time you were here."


With those daring necklines it isn't easy to remember faces. Th e two old hen s were bein g chased madly about the chicken yard by the barnyard rooster. After several minutes of runnin g from him, one hen turned to the other and panted, "Say, which one of us is he chasin g anyway?" The other clucked back breathlessly, " I don't know, but both of us are running too fast!" "I wonder why so many marriages are failures?" " It must be becau se so many inexperienced people go into it." Many a go-getter is afterwards sorry that he gotter. Some good advice for newlyweds: when you wake up, get up! Here's to th e girl with the turned up nose, The turned-in eyes and the turned down hose, With the turned-on heat and turned-down lightThe hunch I had turned out all right. She : " My, what slim , expressive hands yo u have. They belong on a girl." He: " Well , I never pass up an opportunity." The modern cocktail served in bars is nothing more than an ice cube which has been given an alcohol rub. Girl Friend {pourin g out the drink) : "Say when." Marine: "Any time after the first drink is okay by me." New nursery rhyme: Mary had a little wolf and fl eeced him white as snow.
