PRINCE OF WALES JOLLY WELL PLEASED BY WAIKIKI WAVES
There was a king in a days of old that told the waves to lie down and stay so.
But, his royal highness, the Prince of Wales, tried no such monkeyshines with the waves of Waikiki.
He took what they what they gave him and laughed.
During his brief stay at Honolulu the prince spent several hours surf-boarding and said he was "jolly well pleased."

SWIMMERS WIN NEW LAURELS,
GO SURF RIDING WITH CROWN PRINCE EDWARD
Miss Ethelda Bleibtrey and Miss Charlotte Boyle.
Brooklyn, N. Y., May 29.-
That the Hawaiian Islands are rightly termed the jewels of the Pacific, that it is a great life if one does not weaken, and that the Misses Charlotte Boyle and Ethelda Bleibtrey, the world's champion women swimmers, did more on their trip to Hawaii than win more national championships, can be gleaned from letters which the two Brooklyn girls have sent to friends and to their home club.
Last winter the Metropolitan A.A.U. announced that it was going to send the two Brooklyn mermaids to the centenary in Honolulu on April 12.
So on Thursday, March 18, the twain set forth on their trip half way around the world.
Their first stop was at Detroit, where both Miss Boyle and Miss Bleibtrey cleaned up in all events.
From Detroit they went to Frisco, where they were to depart on a steamer to the Hawaiian Islands.
At Hawaii they competed in the races held there, made a brief acquaintance with island life and returned to California.

a cracker box board ... using It like a surf board.
The cracker box board was probably one panel from a timber biscuit and cracker box in common use 1900-1940.
The example, left, by F.S. Wertz and Company of Reading, Pennsylvania, measures 18" x 13" x 13".
A board from this box would be 18'' x 13'', a very suitable size for a hand-board.

BOBBIE RIDES WAVES ON A "FISH"
Dad may talk of "the big one that got away," but Bobbie "caught" his fish and hangs onto it.
Bobbies' big fish is made from balsa wood- lighter even than cork.
It makes a fine surf board, ridding like a bubble on the ocean.

will meet in the journalism room of the library on
Monday evening to hear Stuart Carroll speak on the
editorial angle of the newspaper.
Mr. Carroll is an old student.
His versification finds resting place on the walls of many campus rooms and many student admirers of the department of Journalism are interested in his appearance at the Press club meeting.
The Mildred Leo Clemens company of Hawaiian artists proved the most interesting concert of the year at Washington hall Saturday night.
Five natives presented a program of vocal, instrumental, not to mention terpischorial entertainment, which held the audience long after the usual hour.
Miss Clemens delivered a lecture on the Island, illustrated by her own photograph and moving pictures, showing excellent views of a volcano in action and molten lava in close-up.
The famous beach at Waikiki was presented with exciting pictures of the native sports of swimming and surf-board riding.
