Godfrey, director of the public re
lations bureau. Mr. Godfrey lived
for two years at Hilo, Hawaii,
where he was managing editor of
the Hilo Tribune-Herald, and he
also worked for a time on the Htar
BulJctiu in Honolulu.
The first lesson given the players,
coaches and faculty members was
in the pronunciation of “Hawaii.”
There is no “ia” on the end of the
word, Godfrey pointed out, and it
should lie pronounced “Ha-wu-ce.”
The word “Aloha,” which means
“ hello,” “goodbye,” “1 love you”
and several other tilings, is pro
nounced "AJ-oh-ha” and not “aloa”
as is often done here.
The players were also cautioned
never to refer to Japanese and Chi
nese as “Japs” or “Chinamen” as
these terms are regarded almost as
insults in the islands. The bovs
were also told not to say “United
States,” when referring to the main
land, for the people of Hawaii re
gard their territory as an integral
part of this country, with rights
equal to any other part of the na
tion. The term “mainland” is al
A few other Hawaiian words in
common use were added to the vo
cabulary of tlie travelers. “Waliine”
is tin' universal designation of girls]
or women. “Wikiwiki” means I
“hurry up.” “Pilikia” means trou-|
bio, and the phrase “no pilikia”]
means “il is no trouble to do it,” as
speaking of a favor requested. A J
word in universal use is “pan” I
meaning “completed, done, finished, j
or through.” “Pau for the day,”
means that work for that day is

Cities in the islands are modern
