KA f»A LAf»ALA ( c the t(Hii)etMif c Uais aii PRESENTS Ike 1944 ; A PALA ?AIA !.i l U l lHUMMi.A u, i ja.» i Jti ii i wwBBwgwiWlliil FORE W O R D The University of Hawaii annual staff for this year has struggled along under serious handicaps. The war has taken away almost half of the members of the Ka Palapala staff, leaving only a very few to carry on the work. This accounts for the limited size of the annual. But the Editor and his staff sincerely hope that this year ' s edition will serve as a reminder to underclassmen and Seniors of the days spent on the campus, and in the library studying for finals. It Is hoped that the Ka Palapala will help to sustain the memories of four years of studying throughout the rest of the graduate ' s life. C O M T E N T S ADMINISTRATION CLASSES ACTIVITIES SPORTS ORGANIZATIONS ACTIVITY CANDIDS GREGG SINCLAIR President ADMINISTRATION fi DMIMISTRAnON Scafii c eqentA Recognizing the imminent need for outside island representation on the Board of Regents, the Territorial Legislature passed a bill calling for a totally new type of Board.

These are examples of some of the important working groups for the year: KA PALAPALA edited by Mike Hazama. KA LEO started with co-editors John Ohtani and Fran- ces Chang. Second semester, Frances Chang was editor-in-chief. COMMUNITY CHEST DRIVE Dick Kosaki and Michiko Uno were co-chairmen. CAFETERIA COMMITTEE Dick Kosaki, chairman, and Andy Ikezawa, vice- chairman, handled the immediate crisis by drafting the ASUH Council to work there a week till others could be found to work. CONVOCATION COMMITTEE Catherine Lees and Doris Nitta. BOARD OF DEBATE AND FORENSICS Peter Aduja, chairman. LIBRARY COMMITTEE Betty Kobayashi Sheila McCall Pat Miller Muriel Ling Dr. Schwartz, adviser PICNIC GROUNDS COMMITTEE (built a steak roasting grill) Winifred Tom, chairman George Fukunaga Abbie Kong Betty Kikawa. BOARD OF PUBLICATIONS Elbert Yee, chairman. ASUH SOCIAL COMMITTEE Leon ' Ha Kekuewa, chairman Did Lei Day dance and lei contest. WAR COUNCIL Andy Ikezawa, temporary chairman Nora Saida, chairman The bond drive was their biggest project. I, The ASUH carried on the Freshmen Orientation Program with Elsie Awai as chairman, assisted by Clara Funasaki, Nora Saida, and Mike Hazama. The plan included Big Brother and Big Sister work, and a new type of hazing program was started. Instead of Freshmen being required to buy Frosh caps for fifty cents, they were required to wear a war stamp booklet around their necks and to purchase fifty cents worth of war stamps. Also instead of meting out corporal punishment a Freshman would be fined a ten-cent war stamp for each offense against traditional restrictions. The YMCA boys were authorized to squelch any hazers who might be too enthusiastic, and to rescue any Frosh in danger of being harmed. 2. Three plays attended by the student body: Kiss and Tell Dough Girls Angel Street. 3. Community Chest drive over-topped quota. Dick Kosaki and Michiko Uno, co-chairmen. 4. The tuberculosis drive went over the top. 5. The Red Cross drive went over the top. Winifred Kawamoto, chairman Clara Funasaki Michiko Uno Jean Ono. 6. Copies of Ka Leo were sent to ASUH members at Camps McCoy, Shelby, and Savage. Ka Pala- pala will be sent when it comes out. 7. The faculty was included in the ASUH, and mem- bership cards sent to them. 8. The biggest job by the Council was the clarifica- tion of the status of social clubs. The job took from October to April to finish, but every club that applied for recognition so far has been given ASUH recognition. 9. When Pump Searle left to work at the Stadium, he was given a send off at a " Pump Searle Day " . Andy Ikezawa was chairman of the commit- tee for this. Pump was also presented with a gold pen and pencil set. 10. ASUH trophies were polished at a large gather- ing of campus notables. I I . An attempt was made to eradicate mosquitoes from the Social Science Hall. 12. Army volunteers were given a send off at an assembly. 13. A grill was built by the Picnic Grounds Commit- tee. Winifred Tom, chairman, was assisted by George Fukunaga, Abbie Kong and Betty Kikawa. 14. The ASUH Dance was given free to all ASUH members on Lei day. Leonilda Kekuewa, chairman of the Social Committee. 15. SUM UP The Council has this year finished all back business left undone or unsettled since the war. The desk is cleared up and work has been finished up to date. So the new ASUH councilors and officers can start out next year with their heads above water. Respectfully submitted, Barbara Bown, ASUH President. 15 A. ¥ . S. This year the Associated Women Students under the leadership of Betty Kikawa, president; Nora Saida, vice-president; Chlyeko Ikegami, secretary; and Bernice Miannni, treasurer; has accomplished one of its most successful achievements since the time of its organization. Following Betty Kikawa ' s resigna- tion, Peggy Yorita was appointed acting president. All regular women students on the campus were members of the AWS. Two councilors each from their respective classes were elected as members to the Executive Council. They were Aiko Ota, Mary Imafuji, Senior; Judith Kubo, Junior; Edna Ching, Michie Okinaka, Sophomore. hHarriet Yoshida and Alana Wong, Freshman representatives, and Rose Kamurl, corresponding secretary, were appointed by the Executive Council in October. Acting on the Advisory Board were two faculty members and two faculty wives. Miss Helen MacNIel, Mrs. Cora Beas- ley, Mrs. Andrew Lind, and Mrs. Paul Bachman, re- spectively. As in previous years, the association again took up its big sister movement to care for the incoming freshmen. Picnics and hikes were planned by Abbie Kong and her committee. To further fellowship among its members, Kaikuaana teas were held every Friday afternoon in the Women ' s Lounger during the first semester. All women students were invited to attend. Another project of the Big Sister Commit- tee was the hike to Manoa Falls on December 18, in which all ASUFH members, especially freshmen, were invited to participate. To acquaint its members with university life and good study habits a little sister picnic was held at the YWCA Beach hHouse. The first formal dance of the year sponsored by the association was the Thanksgiving Dance at Hem- enway hiall. At the AWS dancing class, rhythm, fox trot, jitter- bug, waltz and tango were among the lessons given by Mr. Noah Potti, instructor, and Miss Doris Nitta, assistant. Shirley Luke was general chairman of this project. The association and the YMCA jointly sponsored a workshop to provide Christmas gifts for dependent children. Materials and tools were generously do- nated by the faculty and students. Approximately 500 gifts were distributed to needy children through the efforts of Winifred Kawamoto and Harry Kuri- saki, co-chairmen. Members of the Executive Council held two con- ferences during the year. The first, an informal pic- nic-discussion, was held at the YWCA Beach House. The second was held at Hemenway Hall between semesters. Dr. Dunstan and Mrs. Hanson joined the council and advisory board In airing association problems. A new project undertaken was that of publishing a directory of all University of Hawaii students and faculty members. Such a directory was the first pub- lication of its kind available to the student body. 16 The work and sale of these directories were taken care of by Peggy Yorita and her publicity committee. A novel semi-formal social, The Leap Year Dance, was planned by Grace Seki and her committee. As publicity, a talent parade was held prior to the dance. The leap year theme was carried on through- out the dance. Radish and parsley tops were pro- vided as flowers for the men. Another project carried on from last year was the USO ' s Varsity Menehune Dances for servicemen, which were held once a month at various posts, hlowever, during the second semester under Lila Lee, monthly service dances were held at hiemenway Hall. Sponsored by the YWCA and the association was the Councillor ' s Hour. Groups were formed by the chairmen, Bernice Minami and Dorothy Dye, to dis- cuss topics of interest to members. Other projects undertaken by the AWS included the revision of the constitution with the help of a professional lawyer. Miss Loomis, and the placing of girls as scout leaders under Barbara June Wilson ' s committee. To climax an active year, a banquet for women students was held at Hemenway Hall, May 6. A ceremony was held at which outgoing officers were honored for the part they played in making the year a successful one. ■ ..

Unlike previous years, the Ka Palapala staff suffered one of its darkest years. Throughout the year it was not uncommon to hear constant rumors that there would not be a yearbook published. At the start of the school year a staff of twenty- two eager members were assigned to their duties under the editorship of Mike Hazama. Locating a printer was the next big problem. The Paradise of the Pacific Publishing Company, who had done the publishing of our past yearbooks, failed to renew the contract which expired last year. After several months of anxiety and doubt, heartening news was received. A printer was found. The Lederer, Street Zeus Publishers of Berkeley, California, heard of our plight and came to the rescue. However, when classes were resumed In February, only a skeleton crew returned. This was only the be- ginning of a long series of misfortunes. Resignations came in at such a rapid rate that ultimately only seven members remained to do the work which nor- mally requires about twenty-five. The staff suffered its biggest loss when Editor Hazama was called upon to teach at the Teachers ' College Intermediate School. Although his services were not lost entirely, his time was pretty much oc- cupied so that he could not devote a great deal of it to Ka Palapala. Another severe loss was suffered when Associate Editor Yuriko Yoshlmorl tendered her resignation. The photographic department turned out to be another big problem. Every member resigned. Also a new darkroom had to be found. Fortunately Ben Ranada volunteered his services and performed a marvelous one-man job. Adding to the chaos of this department was the sad news that films and flash bulbs were to be rationed. To make up for the cur- tailment of necessary equipment, a campus photog- raphy contest was held which netted in many useful candid snapshots. It can readily be seen that the Ka Palapala was made possible only after many hectic months of un- certainty. Much credit is due to Editor Hazama and the few remaining staff members who, like the sailors of a ship, stuck to their assignments even though at times everything seemed hopeless. Walter Watson. Calvin Ontai, Jackie Palkuli, Ben Ranada, Henry Awana, Edward Furukawa, Maile Paoa, and Oriet Smythe certainly did yeoman work considering the numerous obstacles they have had to overcome. 54 ; A LEO FRANCES CHANG Editor " The news must go through. " And so It did even though Ka Leo of hiawaii (The Voice of hHawaii) was no exception to the existing hardships and labor problem. To most students it was just another weekly pub- lication on the latest campus gossips, hlowever, to the members of the staff, it meant spending their entire Sundays in Ka Leo ' s office. Although a large staff was recruited at the start of the year, it soon became evident that only a handful of workers were to remain. Even the highly coveted position of editor was difficult to fill. Consequently, Ka Leo passed through the hands of three editors during the course of the year. Under its first editor. Marietta Chong, work was started, hlowever, after two publications, news was received that Editor Chong would have to leave for the mainland. To fill the vacancy. Assistant-editors Frances Chang and John OhtanI were elevated to the position of co-editors. An Adviser, Mr. Elmer Anderson, was added to its staff In January. Another loss was suffered at the beginning of the second semester when John Ohatni resigned his po- sition. This, however, did not hinder its progress, and under the excellent leadership of Frances Chang, Ka Leo pulled through. Although greatly handicapped, Ka Leo was not lacking in interest and variety of news coverage. Be- sides carrying all of the necessary campus events, frequent correspondences from former students who had joined the armed services and were on the main- land were published. E ' bert Yee ' s " Sweetness and Light " was also of Iremendous interest and color. So was " Letters to the Editor " which proved to be an excellent outlet for those wishing to " blow off steam. " Like all newspapers, Ka Leo received both criti- cisms as well as praises. Nevertheless, It performed a highly important function and its staff is commended for their excellent work. 55 ;fi " g " : TOP ROW. left to right: Eliiabeth Ahn.

A colorful two-day celebration of pageantry and musical entertainment headed by Leonllda Kekuewa marked this year ' s May Day program. Although lack- ing the pre-war out-of-doors ceremonies, it neverthe- less served its purpose and was enjoyed by all. As is customary, the highlight of the program was the coronation of the May Queen, lovely Oriet Smythe, who was attended by Maile Paoa, Ellen Mil- ler, Jackie Paikuli, and Laura Lucas. Paying homage to the queen were the following princesses who repre- sented the different islands: Barbara Wilson. Jean McKillop. Elizabeth Ahn, Martha Nitta, Bernlce Yamagata. Lani Chun, Portia Yim, and Marjorie Nagai. Big attraction of the eventful program was a dance featuring two orchestras. Traditional holokus and garlands of flowers added to the gaiety and color of the occasion. Unlike past years, a lei contest was held under the supervision of Rosella Blalsdell, which proved to be a big success. 56 V « MiiWjP».VW ' jX Hx QUEEN ORIET SMYTHE The Queen with the new A.S.U.H. President, JOHN OHTANI 57 i ALFRED LAURETA Winner — All- Hawaii Oratorical Contest ' .1i MILES SHISHIDO Second Place — All-Hawaii Oratorical Contest Debate and Forensics Invaded the campus after a lapse of two years. Activities got off to a slow start, but when the students became aware of the opportunity to exercise their right to express their opinions, this campus activity soon attained its pre- war status. The number of students who showed keen interest and willingness to listen to the " windbags " was surprising. The organization of the activities was under the leadership of chairman Peter Aduja and a committee composed of Pershing Lo, William Kawato, Kepolkal Alull, Donald Char, Joseph Sing, Gloria LIgot, and Dr. Joel Trapldo, advisor. The Alumni Room in hlemenway Hall was the set- ting for the first oratorical contest held on January 13. Calvin Ontal delivered his winning oration on " Post-War hlawall. " Leon Chun and Gloria Ligot also walked off with speech honors. Defending the affirmative side of the much-talked about subject " A National Service Law " , the Fresh- man quartet composed of Calvin Ontal, Bernard Fonq, Philip Lee, and Bernard Yim walked off with top honors In the inter-class debate held on March 28. Strong opposition was put up by the Sophomore team composed of Nelson Dol, Paul Nakamura, Nor- man Ueda, and Cyril Kanemitsu who finished second. The finals of the All-Hawaii Oratorical contest held on April 13 proved to be a big day for Alfred Lau- reta who addressed the students with his winning oration entitled " No Time for Complacency. " Sec- ond and third places went to Miles Shishido and Peter Aduja respectively.

There was hardly a man of the 500-odd men in the campus who did not participate in at least one of the various sports offered during the year, and there was hardly a day in which a competitive sport of one kind was not being played. The Class of ' 47, with a determined spurt in the second half of the academic year, won the much- sought-after interclass championship crown. The Juniors made a spirited attempt to beat the Frosh and pressed them until the last sport, but they were unable to cope with the high-riding Frosh Class. The Sophomores and the Seniors followed respectively. Although the Sophomores did not finish on top in the race for the interclass championship, they pro- duced three of the most outstanding sportsmen of the year. John Ohtani with 991 2 points was awarded the gold medal; Harry Kurisaki with 98 points, the silver medal; Hiroshi Yamane with 75 points, the bronze medal. Garnering 89I 2 points against the Sophomores ' 23 points, who came in second, the Freshmen scored an impressive victory in the interclass men ' s swim- ming meet. The Juniors with 1 2I 2 points and the Seniors with 6 followed the leaders. One record was broken and another tied in the meet. Walter Watson broke the 25 yards free-style novice record by clipping off one-tenth of a second from the old record of II .4 seconds. Clocked at I 2.2 seconds, Mitsuo Umeda tied the long standing 25 yards breast stroke novice record. Yoshio Shibuya and Robert Torigoe were the out- standing swimmers of the meet, garnering 20 and 14 points respectively for the Freshman class. 62 • t ' )fc- ' % ;W ' Watet PpU The highly touted Frosh mermen again dominated the activities in the University pool and annexed the interclass water polo cham- pionship. They defeated the Juniors 3-1 and the Sophomores 3-2. The Seniors did not enter a team. 63 IMTRAMURAM . . . Vtlle UI The Juniors in the unlimited diivsion broke the Frosh ' s winning streak by beating the other classes in well-played tilts. hHowever, they were not as success- ful in the " midget " section, finishing in last place. The Frosh took the " midget " volleyball title. ytack The thud of feet sounded from Cooke Field in the beginning of May, announcing the interclass track and field events. By winning eleven out of twelve events, the Freshmen tracksters scored a major clean sweep in the two-day meet. The Freshmen scored 99.9 points, the Sophomores 33.7, the Juniors 10.4. and the Seniors 4 points. Although no records were broken, the times and dis- tances compared favorably with the records. Star of the meet was Mendel Borthwick, who placed in six events. h-le won the 440 and 220 yard runs, placed third in the I 10 yard dash and ran in the two winning relays for a total of 17 points. Dan Harimoto, Tsuneo Okinaka, Wallace Loui, and Alfred Laureta, all Freshmen, were other high point men. c tifail The Freshmen had pretty much of their way in the Softball league and went through the season unde- feated. The Juniors, losing only to the Freshmen, finished second. 44 FRONT ROW, left to right: Harrison Chong, Hiroshi Yamane. Harry Kurlsakl, Jchn Ohtani. SECOND ROW: Jenjo Yasutomi, Sun Bok Kim, Harry h ' oda, Edc ' ie ee. iSa ketltatl In what might be termed tl " ,e lonqcst and most hotly contested sport of the year, the basketball season lasted from December until April, and each game was played with the vigor and speed which characterized interclass sports competition. The Sopho- mores, boasting men like Eddie Yee, Sun Bok YIm, John Ohtani, hiiroshi Yamane and h arry Kurlsakl, and the Juniors with men like Mile hHazama, Pershing Lo, Robert Chuck, and Eddie Chock were in a class by themselves. As a consequence, the open league slimmed down to the two classes, which staged a two-way race fcr the championship. In a play-off game, after each team had beaten the other once, the Sophomores unleashed a fast-breaking offense and conquered their arch rivals, 40-31. In the 5 ' 7 " league the Juniors won the championship hands down. Two freshmen teams and the Seniors were tied for second when all the shouting was over. 65 .i. : 0ccet By defeating the Freshmen 3-1 in a play-off game, the third-year men copped the soccer title. Men picked on the all-star soccer team were Domingo Los Banos. Mendel Borthwick, Pershing Lo, Robert Chuck, hiideo Omine, Seichi Ono, Thomas Lee, John Tom, Elias Yadao, Mike Hazama, hienry Nagahisa, John Ohtani, Yoahiharu Mikami , and Hideo Miyaki. octUi With coaches Harry Noda and Jenjo Yasutomi molding a smooth working pigskin aggregation around a nucleus of Hiroshi Yamane, Harry Kurisaki, John Ohtani, and John Tom, the Sophomores went through the season with four wins and one loss and copped the pennant in the interclass football league. With the air still filled with the smell of porkskin, the individual kicking contest was held. Masayoshi Nishimura won the laurels in the unlimited division with Walter Watson finishing a close second. Harry Kurisaki successfully defended his 145 pounds crown, and Albert Alfonso pressed the champ throughout the contest. 66 INDIVIDUAL SPORTS Robert Chuck dominated the individual sports this year, copping two crowns. He suc- cessfully defended his all-cannpus men ' s singles ping pong title from George Lum, 21-18, 21-16 and 21-1 I. He also won the all-campus handicap tennis crown, defeating Nobu Nakasone, 6-3, 6-2, 6-2. In the novice tennis tournament, George Lum won the crown when he defeated Tony Ventura in four torrid sets which took over three hours to complete, 6-4, 6 3, 2 6, 6-2. Eddie Yee and John Ohtani retained their doubles volleyball title when the duo defeated George Miyasaka and Henry Nagahisa in the championship match. VARSITY SPORTS LEFT TO RIGHT: Yoshlo Shlbuya, Mitsuo Umeda, Robert Tongoe, V alter Watson. M ' nttnih Marking the first attempt to return to senior com- petition since the outbreak of the war, a varsity swim- ming team under the tutelage of Bert Chan Wa was organized. The newly formed team participated in the three- day AAU meet at the Punahou pool and in numerous dual meets. The team, being composed almost entirely of freshmen, did not fare too well in the meets, how- ever, it produced a few luminaries as Yoshio Shibuya, who scored the majority of the University ' s points and who incidentally was the only male student to earn a varsity letter this year. JuHht A A ' % Sa kethaU Coach Bert Chan Wa ' s 1944 edition of the Junior AAU Basketball team — the runner- ups — after four months of practice and campaigning. In the championship game with the U. S. Life Insurance five, the green and white boys finished on the short end of a 29-25 count. The opponent dominated the first half with its tricky offense and led at half-time 15-10. The second half found the University suddenly coming to life. Chock. Chuck, and Yamane shot three consecutive goals to pull the score up to 27-25. However, the Insurance boys went into an effective stall the last four minutes and the Manoa lads failed to penetrate their defense and the game ended, 29-25. The Uhl squad entered the round robin championship as a result of five successive wins against a single defeat in the regular series. During this period, the boys showed improvement with each game, losing only to the strong Acm e team. In the round robin series, the Manoa team engaged in five torrid battles and won four, to gain a berth in the finals. They first defeated Mclnerny, then lost to U. S. Life Insurance, but came back strong to win three successive games against Chung Nyn Whei, Acme, and Hui Laulima. Head mentor Bert Chan Wa formed the team around the six remaining lettermen, Robert Chuck, Mike Hazama, John Ohtani, Harry Noda, Harry Kurisaki, and Jenjo Yasutomi, at the beginning of the season. In midseason a new find by the name of Eddie Chock was found, and from his guard position he led the team superbly, both offensively and defensively. No one can deny the fact that the team was one of the most spirited and snappiest in the loop. They fought unceasingly to the very last second of each game. At the end of the championship game they took up the motto, " We ' ll bring home the crown next year. " Final statistics show that the University squad played twelve games, winning nine and losing three. High scorer for the team was lanky Robert Chuck, who collected 1 48 points. He was followed by Yamane with 65, Chock with 57, and Ohtani with 53 points. The team garnered a total of 441 points against their opponents ' 367 points. They made approximately 33 per cent of their shots, while the opponents made good only 25 per cent. Letter earners this year were Mike Hazama, John Ohtani, Henry Nagahisa, Robert Chuck, Eddie Chock, Hiroshi Yamane, Yoshitsugi Hokama, and Gordon Liu. 68 INTER -CLUB SPORT The YMCA Club, advised by Mr. Shigeo Okubo, revived the interclub sports program, which was In- activated after the start of the war. Six clubs, Ather- ton hlouse, Engineers, Commerce, Pre-Medlcs, Peng hlul, and the Aggies eagerly entered the league and participated In four sports, basketball, volleyball, baseball, and track. Led by Alfred Yee and Shunlchi Miyamoto, the Engineers won the championship of the league, but not until after three rounds of play-offs which tended to continue until the end of the school year among the Commerce, Pre-Medics and the Engineers. VoUeifUl The Peng hlui Club had much of their way In this sport because of their rangy members. Atherton hlouse finished second, with the Pre-Medics, Engi- neers and the Commerce Clubs following In that order. 9 ? t SITTING, left lo right: Albert Tom, Albert Lum, FrancU Mau, Alfred Yee, Albert AUonjo STANDING: Mendel Borthwick, Tony Ventura, Mr. Okubo, Edwin Mookini.

VA A A . Plans for an active sports program were the nuclei trom which sprung the Women ' s Athletic Associa- tion ' s most complete war-time activities. Violet Motokane presided over her cabinet of hiester King, vice-president-treasurer; hlilda Matsu- moto, secretary: Charlotte Namild, eligibility chair- man; and the various sports managers. Realizing that the accelerated program cramped the style of many a co-ed, the girls mot with adviser Mrs. La Verne Bennett to play ways and means of stimulating inter- est in sports. Yoshika Torigoe, last year ' s most valuable volley- ball player, managed the sport which started off the 1943-1944 seasons. Out of the 80 entries for volley- ball, four class teams were selected. At the end of the season, a deadlock for the crown title existed between Freshmen and Juniors. The teamwork of the latter, however, proved too much for the Freshmen who were down by the score of 15-3. Packing dyna- mite in her four feet nine inches, Judith Kubo led her Jolly Junior Jerks, who walked off with the W.A.A. volleyball championship. The swimming season started off with a " splash party " in the middle of November. Its success was the effort of Ruby Shitabata, W.A.A. swimming man- ager. The " splash party " specialized in comic ex- travaganzas with star performers, Charlotte Namiki and Violet Motokane, junior mermaids, and Kai Bong Chung, junior merman. The second phase of the swimming season was held early in December. This was a meet which included efficiency swimming, individual freestyle events, diving and relay competition. The junior mermaids, captained by Gladys Kuikiyo easily took the cham- pionship. Nora Ikeda ' s sophomores came In second. MRS. LA VERNE BENNETT Adviser 72 I 73 74 CAMPUS ?£RSONAirn£S ORGA NI2ATIOM ( Pcckela Since its inception in 1928, Hui Pookela, women ' s hono- rary society, has attempted to promote scholarship, recog- nize and encourage leadership and unselfish service in student activities, to foster fellowship among women stu- dents and to extend campus hospitality. hlui Pookela, meaning " the chosen, " elects its members on the basis of scholarship, service, leadership and charac- ter. The effects of the accelerated university program has been felt in this organization since many of its members left for their teaching assignments on the outside islands. However, attempts have been made to revive some of the former activities of this club. Two cookie baking proj- ects were carried on by the club at the home of Mrs. Beasley, adviser, to promote fellowship among the mem- bers and the adviser. Mrs. Leonora N. Bilger, adviser of the club from 1929 to 1940, spoke on the purpose and organi- zation of Hui Pookela at a meeting held early in May. Plans were formulated for the annual alumni tea held sometime in June. Admitted in October were three seniors, Barbara Bown, Edith Doi and Michiko Uno, who were presented with the traditional maili lei, the token of honor and merit. New members elected during the second semester were Nora Saida, U+ano Nishimitsu, Mildred Doi and Miriam Usui. Other active members include Dorothy Jim, Yuri Takesue, and Janet Kuwahara, while the associate members are Fumiko Yoshida, Mariko Kutsunai and Hisako Ogawa. Officers of this club are Janet Kuwahara, President; Barbara Bown, Vice-President; Michiko Uno, Secretary- Treasurer. Mrs. Cora M. Beasley is the adviser. 78 phi Xant a Chi I Phi Lambda Chi, the University chapter of the National Allied Youth, carried out as its major project of the year the sale of Christmas seals on the campus. Starting off with an initiation party early in October, the members lost no time in carrying on a successful program through- out the year. Among its other activities were a city-wide survey on liquor, a chop suey dinner, a hiallowe ' en party, and an assembly. Later in the year three speakers represented the Uni- versity chapter at an Allied Youth conference at which time the numerous activities of the Allied Youth Union were w idely publicized. Keeping in harmony with the or- ganization ' s platform, the liberation through education of the individual and society, from the handicaps of alco- holic beverages, the members firmly believe that a full life can be enjoyed without smoking, drinking, or gambling.

A ticultutal Ciub The normal activities of the Agricultural Club and its contribution to the war effort were sharply curtailed this past year. Last year ' s successful seedling project was dis- continued because of the various employments held by the members outside of their regular class hours. The Aggie Club also lost seven more of its members when they enlisted in the Army Language School at Camp Savage, Minnesota. All members of this club are regular students carrying six or more credit hours in agriculture. Freshman students make up the majority of the club. Laura Lucas, who majors in animal science, makes the club quite unique by being the only woman student in the club. The Aggie Club has always tried to create a closer re- lationship between agricultural instructors and students and to foster fellowship among students in agriculture. As in the past years, the club has cooperated with and assisted the ASUH in all its functions. Earlier in the year a picnic and afternoon social were successfully carried on at Hem- enway Hall with the Pre-Nursing Club.

On the campus, members of the club distributed their services and energy equally well to the Welfare, Bond and Red Cross drives. Athletics, too, provided by the Y.M.C.A. interclub competition gave the organization a varied and well-proportioned program. A number of dances were held in conjunction with the Hale Laulimities for the Signal Corps personnel through- out the course of the first semester. Two more dances, one in February and the other in May, completed their social activities. Officers: Charles Kagawa, president; Jenjo Yasutomi, vice-president: Nobuyuki Nakasone, secretary: Sam Wat- anabe, treasurer; and Major Robert J. Patrick, adviser. 81 Cmiftetce Clul The aims of this club are to promote fellowship among business and economics majors and other students, and to continue association with the alumni. Membership this year was extended to students in other departments interested in business and economics. The first social gathering, a picnic, was held at the Y.W. C.A. beach house, where facts and figures of the mad business world were forgotten for one day during the Christmas holidays. The club ' s " Springtime Dance, " held on March 25, was a delightful semi-formal with Miss An- nette Aspera, soloist, as featured guest artist. The club wound up its social activities early in May with another picnic at Hanauma Bay.

Most of the members are engaged in research connected with necessary war materials at hH.S.P.A., the Board of Health, and Pearl Harbor Laboratory 63. Monthly meetings were held in the evenings because the majority of the members worked during the day. The meetings, usually attended by guest speakers, were held in Hemenway Hall and were followed by supper in the cafe- teria. For social activities the club enjoyed a large dinner at the beginning of the year and a picnic in the latter part of the year. 83 ■ - n ' I w i» ' ■ 1 jaummi .

" At the first gathering of the year, Dr. Christopher J. Hamre spoke on what a medical student must go through in attaining a medical degree. Later In the year. Dean Kel- ler gave the pre-medical and pre-dental students an Idea as to how they stood with their draft boards. An interne, Dr. Thomas Chang, also gave an Interesting talk on his ex- periences in medical college under war-time conditions. The high-light of the year was an excursion to the Ter- ritorial Hospital at Kaneohe. The future psychiatrists had their first experience of meeting the kind of patients they would have to handle. By their participation in all inter-club sports, the mem- bers have proved themselves to be versatile athletes. A joint social was also held with the Home Economics Club.

The local association Is one of 650 student organi- zations in the United States. Some of the programs open to the whole school were special Christmas and Easter Worship Services featuring music by hlui liwi and Mrs. Peggy Hitchcock; a concert by a famous Negro soldier choir; and Informal dances. Pro- grams for Y.W.C.A. members only consisted of (I) study and discussion groups on religion, public affairs, delin- quency and budget making; (2) Red Cross work as a com- munity service; (3) hikes and picnics for recreation. An Important event of the year was the annual " Kuuna " or traditional party for all freshman women. As a special contribution to the war effort the Y.W.C.A. sponsored a concert by the Pipers of Maluhla to aid In the sale of war bonds and stamps.

When each had matriculated and had had a chance to talk with the others, they decided to meet on the cam- pus under the shady trees from 12:30 to I p.m. daily for mutual aid from prayer and discussion. From a humble beginning of a few members, the Prayer Circle has grown to a group of twenty. These students were not afraid to say " I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of Sod unto salvation to everyone that believeth. " (Romans 1:16.) The Prayer Circle stands for the advancement of the cause of Christ on the campus and for cooperation with other groups and organizations of a similar nature. It has no official organization or name, for the group wishes to be known s ' mply as a prayer and a Bible study group. Its motto could well be " Devotionally seeking truth and help through spiritual guidance! " " We will give ourselves con- tinually to prayer, and to the ministry of the word. " (Acts 6:4.) About ihe middle of the first semester the Prayer Circle became a recognized collegiate unit on the campus. 86 Hme CccHcnticj Club Under fhe leadership of Margaret Kim, President; Betty Zane, Vice-President; Nancy Higa, Secretary; Utano Hishi- mitsu, Treasurer; and Miss Carey D. Miller, Adviser, the hlome Economics Club had a busy year. The objectives of the organization are to familiarize the members with the progress being made in the field of home economics, to further the development of individuals In the field of home economics, and to provide an oppor- tunity for a closer relationship among members and faculty and anyone interested in the society. During the first semester, a freshman tea was held in September. Two successful cookie sales were held in No- vember. In the same month, a picnic was held at the Y.W.C.A. beach house to initiate the freshman members. In February, during the vacation, a join social with the Pre-Med Club was held.

The club was originally established to acquaint stu- dents from other islands with the churches of hlono- lulu. The club departed from this objective and be- came simply a gathering for Episcopalians. " Existing but not living " has often been said of the club. Mabel Awai, former president, stated that its inactivity was due to the decrease of members after the " blitz. " With a fresh load of new members from St. An- drew ' s Priory, the present officers hoped to give some life to the club. Officers: Sue Chon Lee, president: Nora Ikeda, vice-president: Jane Okamoto, secretary: Mabel Lee, treasurer. Adviser: Father Corey. 88 FRONT ROW: Left to rigtit — B. Fukada, N. Nishiyama. T.

Hale aulima When the boys from Atherton House spoke of the " hen house, " they had Hale Laullnia in nnind. But to Dr. Bertha Mueller, adviser, and the thirty girls who lived there during the year it was home. " The house of many hands, " which is the free translation of Hale Laulima, is fittingly used, because the girls did all their own work to keep their home spic-and-span. Their chores included preparing the meals, doing the dishes and the usual house cleaning. The girls became small-scale farmers by turning their back yard into an attractive victory garden. The girls often had the boys from Atherton House in for informal parties and evening dancing. Other evenings were spent listening to music, playing the piano, taking a twilight stroll, and of course, studying. Since all of the girls were from the other islands, the mailman ' s arrival caused a daily stir. When he brought letters from Camp Shelby and Camp Savage, all dignity went out the window! The girls were of different racial extractions. They offer a fine example of the case in which a cosmopolitan group can live together under the same roof. Their friendly, co- operative and democratic spirit helped Hale Laulima pass another successful year. 89 ; t ' ' ;fC ' fe ' jfe 7 ; :v ' • . ' ' Ch iheeHh Ciul The primary purpose of this organization is to foster fel- lowship among the students in engineering and to create general Interest In that profession. The club started off with a roster of I 14 members, the largest ever recorded In Its history. Picked out from the un- usuals is Elizabeth Ahn, sole feminine member, whose en- rollment In the Civil Engineering course qualified her for membership. The council system was started to conduct the affairs of the club. The first get-together was a field day with sports events on the campus and a supper In the amphitheater. Dean Webster revealed his vocal talent when he participated In the community singing. His bass In " hlome on the Range " was his outstanding contribution of the day. The Engineers ' New Year ' s Eve Ball at hiemenway Hall was another memorable even of the year with D. Q. Pang, Shiziro KashlwagI and Harrison Chong responsible for its success. 90 ,i -▼ - k.

Dean Keller, selected as the speaker of the first luncheon, aided the nnembers consid- erably in orienting themselves in their chosen profession. The club under the watchful eye of Shigeo Okubo had grand times during Christmas, making and painting doll houses, tanks and trains for the less fortunate children. Camouflaged in the latest war colors, these toys were de- signed and constructed by the engineering students out of orange boxes and scraps. Seichi Amaki, Edwin Fujimoto, George Hata, hiiroshi Hirano, hiaruyuhi Ihemoto, James Irehura, Takio Miya- hami, Masami Murakami, Takeshi Nalto, Ray Nakano, Ka- tusyoshi Nishlmura, Yashito Nishizawa and James Yama- shiro chucked their engineering careers to do a bigger job for the United States Army. The social with the hHome Economics girls was enjoyed this year more than ever. Last but not least in the high- lights of the year was the annual senior banquet honor- ing four graduating members. 91 i . i Y«- ■-,•-_..

Pn-ie al Out, This club of future shysters was organized this year by Richard Kosaki, Frances SogI, and Ralph Miwa with a two-fold purpose, that is, to stimulate thought and discussion on vital political problems of the community, and to promote clear and logical thinking, free from bias and prejudices. Membership in this club is not based on ethno- logical differences, but will be open to all interested regardless of their race. The activities of the club this year were limited to the making of a constitution and organizing of its members. However, discussions were held which en- abled the members to voice and air their opinions on topics of community interest. 92 tWksi Oi P ' ij- » J FRONT ROW: Left to right— Dorothy Murakami, Helen KItagawa, Edythe Kamida, Lillian Villarla, Taneko Hirano, Grace Lee, Michiko Matsul, Peggy Miyagl.

This goal is achieved by the members through voluntary work at the Queen ' s hHospital as pediatric department assistants, general ward maids, clerks, and laundry folders. Speakers ex- perienced in the nursing profession and group dis- cussions also help the club fulfill its aim. The social life of these nurses is well taken care of by teas, luncheons, and picnics. 93 « » V«««pa»«i«Bi9i«i f«a a aaBe n =«3 -MBaa r ' ssar • r ■ fi i ' - AXCTIVITY CA MDID 96 « ' ' n r -:i J i ' ?: ' ' ' CMT ' 97 98 99 I Bon n i ) ' Y 100 101 102 «u- i ' y v. . - lEailEliS i allSIIIIIS 1 103 104 105 I - . -«- t3
