Hawaii to the union of states and I think there was theres an even more compelling reason for it today With Alaskas entry authorized not to do so would be a gratuitous affront to the nearly 600000 people who are proud to call themselves Hawaiian Americans Without seeming to discount Alaskas claims on statehood Id like to suggest to our Congress that the case for Hawaii is strong er For one thing the population is almost three times as great What the longrange potential is cannot be stated of course but at present it isnt even debatable that Hawaii is the better pre pared to support the costs oi statehood In 1940 just a few months be fore Pearl Harbor Day a refer endum was conducted among Hawaiians on the question ol statehood There was a resound ing YES vote The margin was 2 to 1 Tests made since thai time suggest that the ratio would be appreciably greater at this moment The situation with re spect to this is not unlike that in Alaska ON TWO OCCASIONS in the past ten years I have had occa ion to sound out sentimen among the islanders I found some who felt that perhaps thej were getting a better deal tax wise than they would in fill statehood But mostly there was an ardent desire to become the 49th star in the American flag In my report on island sent ment under date of Feb 10 1952 I set forth these three basic con tentions of the Hawaii Statehood Commission 1 The admission of Hawaii into the union as a state is in the bes interests of the nation and of the territory 2 The territory meets all of th traditional requirements for state hood and as a state would mak valuable contributions to nation and world 3 In the current clash of po liticai and economic ideologie upon the world state the admis sion of Hawaii would be a prac tical demonstration in the verj area in which Communism i making a determined drive to win adherence to its totalitarian prin ciples that the U S is holding aloft for all the world the banne of political and economic dc mocracy ONE NIGHT I chanced to b riding in a car with a Honoluh doctor of Japanese ancestry Hi name Dr H H Yamamoto Could anything be more Japa nese With us was another doc tor of Chinese extraction Hi name has left my memory bu I havent forgotten our conversa tion The two doctors seemed to b the best of friends Quite natur ally our conversation veered int the field of mixed racial stock which in no other place known t me in our world is more pro nounced than in Hawaii We arent Japanese or Ch nese Dr Yamamolo reminde me with a good bit of feelin We are Americans Althoug there are more Hawaiians Japanese ancestry than of any other racial stock there isnt even a hint of a Japanese bloc when it comes to voting We just dont think that way Were Americans good Americans Another stimulating person met by me on that visit to Hawaii was President Gregg M Sinclair of the University of Hawaii He was my dinner companion one night and I visited his distinguished institution a time or two later Since
