William Bradford Huie
The whorehouses in Honolulu were not on the hilltops before the war. In 1939 they were at the opposite pole, in their own segregated area near the water-front. Many of the hilltop Anglos had never seen them. But they were a significant part of the Hawaiian systems with a development story of their own.

"Saint Louis Woman, with all her diamond rings ..." Billy Eckstine sang the familiar words in the easy, distinctive style that has made him the top male jazz vocalist in the country. For the second side, Mr. B gave the same tune a bop treatment, and the combo behind him began cutting loose. A man close to jazz would have recognized some famous people sitting in on this recording session. Roy Eldridge was playing trumpet, Kai Winding trombone, Teddy Wilson was at the piano, with Eddie Safranski on bass.

Since this bountiful beauty first appeared in our Letters Section, a number of readers have asked us to show them more of her. On this and the next two pages you'll find a good deal more, and we believe we've shown about everything there is to show. Two or three of the letters requested information on measurements. Favoring warm reality to cold statistics, we must admit we forget all about tape measures whenever she is in the office.
