Ever since Captain Cook visited the
Hawaiian Islands and Herman Mel-
ville started his stories of the South
Seas, the weary traveler has sought
surcease from the hectic life of the
North in the quiet and lanquid islands
below the equator.
The swift airpianes which itow
carry the bedraggled traveler froml
the North to these islands are a far-'
cry from the old sailing ships. It is
now possible to go to Bermuda from!
New York in less tnan five hours.
The giant flying boats speed back and
forth over the new routes to these;
"treasure islands" of the North At-!
lantic. Here is a practical miracle of
