UXHI AnnriMed PTMJ and United Presj mil copy MASON CITY IOWA SATURDAY DECEMBER I Thij Paper Consists el Two OM to Admit Hungarian DPs World Around Us Customs of Fijians Not Disturbed j Number 13 EDITORS NOTE It will around the world in 80 days for our editor unless unrest in cer tain areas precludes air travel This is one in a series of re ports on his experiences and ob By W EARL HALL OUVA Fiji an impressive reminder in th racial situation here that we so called whites are in the minoritj as against the yellow brown ant black peoples in this old work of ours The 100 populated islands of the 300 which make up the Fiji group have a total oi a bit more than people Of these are Fijians de scended from the original set tiers i a r e Asiatics j mostly Indians no more thai are o European stock As in Hawaii W EARL HALL there has been wellnigh perfect accommodation among these islanders of varioui racial backgrounds and religions Intermarriage has not been ras common as in Hawaii or in Brazil but there has been a complete recognition of and respect for the inherited beliefs and customs o each racial group Bushy HairDo The Fijians are out of thL world in their hairdress and their garb AH Im tolt thereare no prouc to sport a bushy hairdo tha Couldnt possibly be covered by a hat Come to think of it I don think Ive seen a hat on an is lander since pur plane sat down on Nandi airfield two nights ago More often than not the wearer of this strange mop of hair will have on a skirt rather than trous skirt with pointed scallops around the bottom of it if there is such a thing as pointed seal lops Theyre much too large to have been made with pinking shears Once the custom was for Fijian men to sleep with head on blocks of wood so that the hair wouldnl be mussed in the back Now however Im told a special kinc of band worn about the head gives the same effect without any phy sical discomfort No Discontent If there is any discontent among the Fiji Islanders about being a British crown colony it hasnt revealed itself Several with whom I talked about the matter exhibited an unmistakable pride in the relationship But the allegiance to mother country doesnt extend to any thing like a universal embracing of the Anglican Church Those with whom I discussed the matter told me that both the Methodists and the Roman Catholics had larger foHowings and that the Mormons and the Seventh Day Adventists were making rapid strides During my time here Ive had occasion to discuss the Egyptian situation with a half dozen na tives Without exception the course being pursued by Anthony Eden and his government has been given an unqualified appiov al Some think he waited much too long to get tough Not Popular By the same token Uncle Sams influence on the side of turning the Suez over to Egypt last sum mer has proved anything but popular in these quarters Both liquor control and traffic control have been pretty well handled here it would appear The government reserves the right to withheld liquor permits to all under 30 years of the plan seems to work The traffic problem is relatively simple too Cars are few in num bers small in size and short on power And the roads are so rough that speeding is all but im possible WATSON CONVICTED DBS MOINES UP Walter Watson 47 labor official Friday was convicted of assault and bat tery in the bumping of a highway flagman with
