Sept. 20.--Research work in the South Seas has been given a new impetus in the placing of the four-masted schooner "Kaimiloa" at the disposal of the Bishop Museum here, by her owners, Mr. and Mrs. M. R. Kel[um. A number of the leading scientists of the islands expect to spend considerable time during the coming two or three years in explor- ing voyages to the outlying and little- known islands of the Pacific, study- ins the botany, zoology and geography of the region, but giving special at- tention to the many scattered tribes of men on the smaller archipelagoes. The schooner is equipped with com- plete scientific laboratories, as well as with comfortable living quarters for long cruises. A wireless outfit is car- ried. The softness of the flesh of many deep-water fish is due to the pressure at the great depths where they spend their lives. When they are hrought to the surface this pressure is taken off; they expand and their flesh be- comes soft. An exchange s'ays: "What did we get out of the World War?"
