V FOREWORD The war years were not easy ones for the ASUH with constant changes in personnel and many re- strictions brought about by the exigencies of the war. Those years were necessarily lean ones, and student activities were meager — but the ASUH did carry on. Among those activities suspended was the publi- cation of the 1945 Ka Palapala. In the mean- time, however, a graphic record of campus life was being constantly maintained with a view to later publication. With the end of the war, Ka Palapala makes its reappearance. The 1945-46 Ka Palapala. therefore, is a combined edition, which graphically depicts two trying years of the ASUH — a characteristic war year, and in contrast, the first year of peace marked by the return of many prewar activities to the campus. H WA HALL r Y t- During the war, the University of Hawaii played a noble part. The students, the faculty, the research workers, the administrative officers exerted all their strength to help win the war. General Richardson ' s letter to me expresses the Army ' s appreciation of the services of the University in all its departments. In the post-war world, let us work, together in the same way to help the University of ILiuaii meet its obligations and its opportunities. This institution is in a preferred position. Many newspaper and magazine articles point to the nat ' ional emphasis upon the Pacific area: they point to the fact that America will have infinitely greater intercourse with Asia than it has ever had before. The Pacific Ocean area trill have more planes, more ships, more travel, more transpor- tation than ever before. There ivill he more studies in meteorology, oceanography, and volcanology. All of this means that Hawaii is ivell placed so far as science and commerce are concerned. We may well assume that the American governmtnt will have a great deal to do with the Pacific mandated islands. Whether they he under civilian or military control, however, the University of Hawaii should make every effort to find out everything of impor- tance relating to the geography of the islands and the qualities of the people. This means serious scientific and anthropological study. The University, through its faculty Committee on Pacific Research, is preparing to make such studies. Now that the war is over, the University can carry through its peacetime plans, to which the University Regents and administration have given great thought. GREGG M. SINCLAIR President Administration ' ii ' {i-fiJ:.Li: • BOARD OF REGENTS Readhii jrom the left An outstanding member of the board, especially to the woman students ot the Universit) ' , is WILLOWDEAN C.

ASUH 1945 Associated Students Clara Funasaki and Nelson Do An unprecedented scries of shifts and changes in top ASUH positions made the year 1944-45 a unique one in the annals of the University of Hawaii. In one big jump, Pat Miller, runner-up tor the vice-presidency in the spring elections became ASUH president by a special wartime ruling of the ASUH. This came about when both the president and vice-president left Hawaii to enter medical schools on the mainland. Nelson Doi was elected to the vice-presidential post in a special October election. However, within a few weeks Pat Miller tendered her resignation as ASUH prexy because of ill health and Doi suc- ceeded her in the top post. The vacancy left by Doi was filled in January when Dat Quon Pang Dat Quon Pang 22 became vice-president in .mother special election. Throughout the year, the secretary ' s post h.-Id down by Clara Funasaki was the only one that did not suffer any chans cs.

Palmer, adviser; and Dat Quon Pang, Betty Kikawa, Nobuko Shimazu, and William Morikawa. In December the Sixth War Loan Drive spon- sored by the Freshmen Class was an immediate success when the original quota of $5,000 was surpassed in the first ten days of the drive. A total of 517,425 worth of bonds and stamps were purchased by the faculty and students. In January, Consuelo Olivas headed the ASUH ' s Bundles for the Philippines Drive. Shoes, blankets, and wearing apparel were collected during the campaign. " Looking Forward in Hawaii " was the topic of the ASUH oratorical contest held on January 10 with Miles Shishido taking top honors.

For the first time in ASUH history, no one had applied for the editorship of Ka Leo. The BOP, faced with the prospect of havint; no campus weekly in 1944, appointed Caroline Dizon, TC junior, to the position. Miss Dizon had just returned to the campus after two years of war work and had served as Ka Leo feature editor in 1940. Clara Funasaki, A S junior, was named business manager. Ka Leo office became " The Beehive, ' " with the slogan. " If you ' re buzzing with news, welcome! If not. welcome anj ' s-ay!! ! " Two new features were introduced. Designated to improve the vocabulary of collegians, " Word Study, " conducted by Revocato Medina and Piilani Feiteira, made a hit with the readers. Page 2, edited by Amy Higashihara, was tilled with lively features and colorful interviews. Hard- working society editors, Marian Ching and Jean Fukuoka, managed an interesting page of social doings. The sports page passed in turn through the hands of George Tanaka, Eva Ling, James Mura- oka, Reiko Takakuwa, and Nobuo Matsuda.

Members of the Board were Calvin Ontai, chairman, Paul Naka- mura, Bernard Gramberg, Fusako Yahiku, Mar- garet Young, and George Ariyoshi. The Varsity Debate team composed of Alfred Laureta, Nelson Doi, Revocato Medina, Miles Shishido, and Calvin Ontai toured the island of Kauai in March.

Their hillbilly music was blared across the campus from the steps of Hawaii Hall to rouse the hesitant students, who peeked out of classroom win- dows, to come out and get into the spirit of the drive. Ably conducted by the Freshman class, the drive virtually ended on the fourth day when the S5,000 goal was topped. The success was credited to the diligent teams of solicitors who initiated a novel campaign of reaching every student personally. The 7th War Loan Drive handled by the Sophomore class was started in April, 1945. Duplicating the team system, the Sophs wound up the drive in March with the goal of $2,000 tripled.

May Day The University ampliitlieater was transformed into a colorful arena when it served as the settinij for a Hawaiian pageant during tlie observation of May Day, 19 15. An old Hawaiian chant by David Bray, Sr., opened the after- noon ' s ceremonies. Memories of ancient Hawaii were revived as lovely wahines sang and swayed to island melodies played by the Na Pua troupe. Stalwart kahili bearers led the royal procession of island princesses. The hi-light of the day was the coronation of May Day Queen Marian Hllis by President Ciregg M. Sinclair. Marian who was elected queen by popular vote on the campus, is of part-Hawaiian extraction. Through her veins run English. (;hinese. Irish, Japanese and other bloods. Spectators were asked to observe a moment of silence in tribute to the late President Franklin D. Roosevelt.

Sweet revenge haunted each Sophomore, for the hazing period had returned to the campus. The " Bury the Hatchet " dance informally cli- maxed the splashy initiation feud between both classes. Comprising half of the student body, 600 fresh- men were officially led off by President Scott Robertson, Vice-President Herman Doi, Secretary lone Rathburn, and Treasurer Edwin Lee. How- ever, in no time at all, Uncle Sam took Robertson and Doi. Thus, during the second semester, the new president Marian Ellis conducted the largest class on the campus with Vice-President Delman Kuykendall. ' The class sponsored the Sixth War Loan Drive setting the goal of $5,000. Capably directed by Alex Theone and Delman Kuykendall, the cam- paign was a stupendous success for the bond quota was tripled. Wellington Chung, George Ariyoshi, Carl Far- den, and Earl Robinson represented the class in the field of debate and forensics. In the social circle, two dances were considerable successes — the informal Spring Frolic on March 1 and the Frosh Formal on April 21. The class was well represented in the colorful May Day pageant. Marian Ellis reigned as Queen of May with ladies-in-waiting Lei Manley and Margaret Wessel. The princesses of different nationalities were: Charlotte Aspuria, Filipino; F.va Correa, Latin- American; Barbara Eaves, Cau- casian; Marian Lake, Hawaiian; and Carol Yue, Korean. Barbara Eaves was queen of the IVth Annual Rainbow Relay Carnival Track Meet. In the sports limelight, both men and women students displayed remarkable ability. This athletic class copped its first intramural sports title domi- nating the all-star line-ups of inter-class sports. rop— Wholesale blessmgs . wat,r.n ' ;. , t vidual scoring champion . . fl L™ ' ' " i --f " " " ' -ond J •ing champion . . .

Despite rigorous war conditions and the gradual depletion of the males, this hustling class produced a host of top-notch leaders. The crew directly responsible for the success of the year ' s events were: Alfred Laureta, president; Bernard Yim, vice-president; Bernice Wong, secre- tary; and Elias Yadao, treasurer. Zealous councillors were: Mendel Borthwick, Hazel Ikenaga, Paul Kokubun, Evelyn Murashige, Takeo Ogawa, Jane Uoss co.ouillor. ' ro,.

The return of hazing was a healthy sii n of a break in the war tension but hazini; week spelleJ terror to the befuddled Freshmen. On the assump- tion that runnin;, ' the sjauntlct strengthens character, the Sophs made certain that each I ' rosh was treated accordingly. The swimming pool echoed with screams and splashes of the green caps but they retaliated later in the week to dunk the Sophs. A truce was negotiated at an iiitorni.il peace-mix attended by both classes. The first festal Soph event was Class Day, the theme being, " We Carry On. " Participants came in sloppy attire for this funfest which included a barn dance, a parade of talents, a men ' s beauty contest, songs, hulas, and just fun. Man behind this success was Bernard Yim. Next was tiic V.ilcntiiie Sweetheart Ball ably carried out by Chairman Elizabeth Ahn. Sweetheart Barbara June Carlton was coronated in a blaze of glory. Court lovelies were Cynthia Chun, Beatrice Dang, Martha Nitta, and Oriet Smythe. In intercla.ss debates and forums, the class points with pride to Rob -rt Hilis, Alfred Laureta, Revocato Medina, and Calvin Ontai who formed the nucleus of the Varsity Debate Team. The two-week 7th War Loan drive, spark- pkigged by Hclene Tokunaga, went over the top with gross sales exceeding the goal of $1,500 four times. A bond dance, featuring Ray Anthony ' s Sub Base Band, climaxed the drive. The effervescent spirit of the Sophs paid off — the class was honored at the Ka Leo banqu et as the most unusual and active class on the campus during 1944-45.

After two years the Juniors were now ready to face the coming year as upper- classmen. They were dogged by trouble from the outset but they pulled through with flying colors. In the spring of ' 44, Norman Ueda was elected president; Walter Wat-son, vice-president; Jean Ono, secretary; and Eva Ling, treasurer. With September came the troubles — essential war work claimed Norman, and an academic appraisal made Walter ofTicially a senior. Jean and Eva took the initiative to hold an election to get the top officers again. George Stiles and Raymond Higuchi were chosen prexy and vice-prexy, but the second semester hit the ' 46ers just as badly. George resigned because he was no longer an ASUH member, and Ray moved up to lead the class from there. Among the many Junior personalities who practically ran the ASUH were: Nelson Doi, ASUH president; Clara Funasaki, ASUH secretary and Ka I.co business ff George B.

Students will remember Richard Kosaki, Ralph Miwa, Hiroshi Yamane, and Bernard Gramberg, who traded books for guns, for their outstanding participation in politics, newswriting and sports. Junior Week was held in February under the chairmanship of Paul Devone and Eva Ling. Some- thing was scheduled for each day of the week: music by the Honolulu Police Glee Club and Rusty Stevens ' Hill Billy Band; two performances of the academy award movie " Going My Way " ; Ka Leo; worship service; the Junior Jamboree; Junior Ball; and they even took over the chores of the cafeteria. A formal dance was held in March and the Junior Prom held in May really climaxed the activities of the exuberant Junior class. 47 ' 1 1 Seniors ' 45 Senior Coi iicil — left to right: Lila Lee, Betty Kikawa, Charlotte Chun Low, Marjorie Okamoto, Aiko Kurisaki, Judith Kubo, Hester Kong, Tomiko Itokazu, Utano Nishimitsu, Shirley Abe, George Akita. The green caps invaded the campus some 700 strong in September, 1941. All that the froshies liad fe.irlully anticipated was waitins; for them — dunkings in the pool, paddlings, the flag rush, and even a ca.se of kidnapping. Although the sophs won oflicially, the green caps led by Jimmy Walker, class president, and Bob Twitchell put up a tough fight. In November, freshmen and .sophomores recon- ciled in a " Bury-the-Hatchet " mixer at which time Queens Anna Kufferath, frosh, and Katherine Allen, soph, reigned. In December, the war came dramatically. The class was depleted to a mere handful when school was reopened in February, but the students carried on despite the handicaps. September, 1942 — back again — this time as sophomores and led by Richard Kuykentl.dl. Al- though some of the traditional ritu.ils of hazing were kept, the flag rush was cancelled this year. As a patriotic gesture, social affairs were kept to a bare miiiiiiuim by Vice-President Alan Walker. Sophomores and freshmen jointly spon.sored a Barnyard mixer in I-ebruary, to which everyone came " Dogpatch " style. In April the sophomore picnic was held in the open-air theater. For the many students, who were doing essenti.d war work, school was a part-time affair. And in this year, Gregg M. Sinclair was inaugurated as presi- dent of the University following the resignation of President David L. Crawford. The class of ' 45 dwindled to a mere 192 in 1943. Pershing Lo, who captained the class quintet to the interclass casaba bauble in 1942, moved up into the class presidency. Next September — seniors, at last! There were only about 150 left of the original 700 or so in the class. Robert Chuck, who was elected president of the seniors in May, resigned, leaving the office for vice-prexy Hester Kong. By special election Tomiko Itokazu was elected vice-president. Other otiicers were Judith Kubo, secretary, and Aiko Kurisaki, treasurer. The class sponsored the Autumn Ball in Novem- ber, went to Hanauma B,iy for the class picnic in A|- ril, was honored at the Junior Prom in May, and held its Banquet at La Hula Rhiimba on June S. (Climaxing the Senior Week was an awards convocation heltl in Partington hall. Minnie Yama- uchi. Ivy Orator, and college representatives Fusako Yahiku, College of Arts and Sciences; Nancy Higa, College of Applied Science; and Yoshiharu Mikami, Teachers College, delivered their speeches at the assembly. 48 Real Deans MINNIE YAMAUCHI— The successful World Student Service Fund drive this year was largely due to the untiring efforts of Chairman Minnie.

When today ' s mighty seniors came in as green freshmen, the campus world was still the glamorous, carefree world of young people with four years to kill — four years of learning and new experiences for which some were prepared, some not. But this world came to an abrupt end when bombs fell on Honolulu, and the eager freshmen, as well as all students, were faced with an ominous future of war and anxiety. Many left school, some to don their country ' s uniforms, some to be engaged in war work, and others to take over family responsibilities. The few who returned in February saw the campus crisscrossed with b omb shelters and trenches; everyone carried khaki-cased gas masks and calmly participated in test alerts. The next couple of years were spent in serious study. In June, 1945, those who survived four years of stringent scholastic work and the interruptions of war were rewarded for their perseverance, leaving the campus w ith appropriate degrees. The Class of 1945 is an example of youth ' s determination in the pursuit of knowledge . . . when they left in June to go their own ways in the world, already the future seemed bright — Germany had fallen and Japan was very near defeat. In their wake followed peace — the peace which finally came in September. The Class of ' 45 is truly the Class nf the Second Great War! 50 ' :- « 1945 6H1RLHV CHIYOKO AUH Sociology Class Councillor 4 Secretary, Sociologj ' Club 4 Vice-President, Hui liwi 4 MOiMOl: AGKNA Home Economics JESSIE AKINAKA Elementary Education MRS.

Inactive since 1941, the Lniversity ROTC pro gram was oHicially started on September 1 7 under Col. Harold Keeley who was later replaced by Col. George Honnen. The first review was held in late April with seven attractive co-ed sponsors. In early October, ASUH Prexy Calvin Onta surprised the Student Council by presenting an invitation from the World Youth Council, propos- ing that the UH send two delegates to the confer ence in London. The appropriating of $4,000 for the trip was a controversial issue but there were many other reasons for the final tabling of the matter. Among them were: the lack of time to meet transportation problems, insufficient time to select qualified delegates for the confab, and the disapproval of the administration. Members of the youth council committee were: Thomas McCabe, Richard Kuykendall, and Calvin Ontai. The ASUH, however, continued to show interest in world affairs and on November 17, International Students ' Day was celebrated on the campus. ISD commemorated the resistance of the University of Prague students against German domination which resulted in a massacre and the closing of all uni- versities in Czechoslovakia. £LBERT Y£E Graduate Manager Eliiis Yadao, ASUH vice-president, was replaced by Paul Devon; at a November election when the former tendered his resignation upon his induction into the Army. A total of $4,617.82 was contributed by students and faculty to the Community Victory Chest drive. The campait;n was sponsored by the Teachers College Club with Miss Paula Emery as chairman. The ASUH Student Directory was issued to students and faculty in early January. Originally scheduled to be distributed in October, the three month delay was caused by difficulties at the printers. The directory contained name, college, class, telephone number, and address of each UH student. An added feature was an office directory. Also issued during the year was the ASUH Student Handbook edited by Marian Joy. Second semester opened with approximately 250 World War II veterans added to the enrollment. This augmentation of the male population on the campus helped to put the first post-war Ka Palapala beauty contest over witli success. The student repre- sentative on the board of judt;es for the contest was ASUH President Calvin Ontai. During the year, the Student Council made an additional appro- priation for the depleted Ka Palapala coffers. In late February. UH students and f.iculty mem- bers packed l-arriiii;tc)n H.ill to he.ir Sen.itor Alice Kamokila Campbell spe.ik .it .i YWCA forum on statehood. Senator Campbell was the lone member of the territorial lei islature to vote ai ainst state- hood in the 1945 session. The Reverend Mineo Katai iri spoke in favor of statehood. Later in the year, the St.itchood for Huuaii campaign was taken over by the ASUH Statehood Committee headed by veteran Ralph Toyota. Misao Oyama, TC junior, won the letter writing contest sponsored by the Statehood Committee on the topic: " Hawaii ' s Case for Statehood. " She won a free airplane trip to the Big Island and a week ' s stay at the Kilaueti Volcano House. Other activities during statehood week on the campus included a statehood campus worship service, special edition of Ka Leo issued under the editorship of Keichiro Yamato, and two assemblies featuring Samuel Wilder King, former delegate to Congress, C. Nils Tavares, attorney general of the Territory, and Dr. Thomas D. Murphy, assistant professor of history. In supporting the territory-wide campaign for statehood, the committee also printed and issued a four-page illustrated pamphlet presenting Hawaii ' s case for statehood. The pamphlets were sent to members of Congress, mainland universities and other institutions. The ASUH council unanimously approved a campus war memorial in tribute to University of Hawaii men who gave their lives in the war. Veteran Ted Tsukiyama was appointed chairman of the War Memorial Committee. Because of the wide variety of ideas expressed in regard to what form the memorial should take, the committee announced in late May that a student poll should be taken in early September to determine the nature of the war memorial. Despite considerable competition from other campus activities, the Theater Guild was revived and brought back to the campus by Dr. Joel Trapido. The first play presented to the students was a choral pageant, All Adds Up to Freedotn, which was featured at the World Student Service Fund drive assembly held at Farrington Hall in late February. The second student production featured a series of one act plays entitled Life in a Big City, Medicine Show, and Progressive Education. Kenneth Nagata Marian Ellis ASUH Campus Day was observed on April 13 with an assembly, aquacade, bufifet dinner, and an informal barn dance at the gymnasium. The sub- committee in charge of the affair was provided by the AWS. At the close of the school year, the council drew up plans for a school band, started the revival of the spirit and rally committee, and sponsored a final post-exam picnic at Ala Moana Park. 75 statehood i ' ' " ' ' " ;fsc-na!oVKamo- Fresl.man Ray Takush. ambles home 25 yards ahead of the had in the mile and a halt Runner-up Stanley ••Harmon K,m strides in for second place . . and the pumpkin pie.

Oll ' ui.il International Students ' Day was Novem- Ixr 17 when universities all over the world cele- brated the day cominemoratin t; the resistence of the University of Prague students against the Ger- mans which resulted in a massacre and closing of all universities in Czechoslovakia. However, the ASUH observed the event a day early in order to synchronize its program with the International Youth Congress program in Prague. A minute of silent prayer devoted to the memory of the 166 Czechoslovak students who were mas- macred six years ago opened the ISD convocation held in the Arthur L. Andrews Theater. Guest speakers were the Reverend Mineo Katagiri and President Gregg M. Sinclair. Thomas McCabe gave a brief report on the London Youth Conference held eaiiier in the month. The celebration was climaxed by a dinner from 6 to 9 p.m. at which time a colorful program was presented. Corporal David Livingston, formerly president of the American Youth for Democracy in New York, was guest speaker at the dinner. The Hawaii Youth for Democracy, a campus organization in the making, was in charge of the International Student ' s Day celebration which was sponsored by the ASUH. Co-chairmen of the affair were Jean McKillop and Clara Funasaki. Commit- tee workers were Vivian Ching, Margaret Danley, Carolyn Ogata, Nathalie Smith, Margaret Awa- mura, Irving Johnson, Rosebelle Kekuewa, Richard Kuykendall, Beatrice Nosse, and Shieko Okazaki. An intermixture of faculty and students, food and conversation — Clara Funasaki (third from right) was co-chairman of the affair. International Students ' Congress A former University of Hawaii student Private First Class George Lum who was then with Head- quarters Company, 4th Armored Division stationed in Regensburg, Germany, represented this institu- tion at the International Students ' Congress held in Prague, C2echoslovai ia from November 17 to 24, 1945. A full and comprehensive report, supplemented by printed material and photographs, came from Pfc. Lum in February. Quoting from his report: " November 17, 1939 will remain a historical milestone, not only for Czechoslovak students and the Czech nation but also for all progressive peace- loving nations of the world. For that date marks the closing of the Charles University in Prague r ' kVV ini " W lUpl Pfc. George Lum and his lovely interpreter.

The first blow in Nazi efforts to enslave tlie peoples of occupied countries was aimed at the students. In the first attack on Prague, 1,200 students were dragged ofT to concentration camps, eiuht were assassinated, and the universities were closed. The International Students ' Congress of 19-15 was prepared by a specially set up preparatory committ. ' e of the Central Union of Czechoslovak Students. The Congress dealt with student problems and made the initial preparations for the building up of a world organization of students, the Inter- national Federation of Students. The meetings were all held in a fairly large assembly hall with delegates from different coun- tries presiding at each session. All discussions were conducted in five different languages — English, French, Russian, Spanish, and Czech, with five interpreters translating the entire proceedings Delegates were quartered in the best hotels in Prague and all possible conveniences were afforded them.

The entire program consisted of a campus tour, an afternoon tea, and Campus Capers, an informal get-together for all freshmen, including men. The three advisers, Mrs. Marjori,; Sinclair, Miss Helen MacNeil, and Mrs. Vera Bachman, greeted the fourth AWS adviser, Mr . Dorothy P. Isom, with a welcome tea. Under the leadership of Arlenc Kim, the Hui Mjnehunes acted as dance and dinner partners for men in the services. Groups of wcmen students went weekly to dances sponsored by army, navy, marine, or scabee divisions. Because of the Territory ' s great need for orcupational therapists, Judith Ito and her Community Service Committee carried on a calendar sale. The money raised was used to send deserving prospects to study on the mainland on the Occupational Therapist Scholarship Fund. The AWS sponsored the Carnival Dance at Hemenway Hall. Feature of the affair was the first public presentation of the five Ka Palapala beauty queens. Climaxing the year was the AWS Banquet at Hemenway Hall. The Latin American theme was evidenced in the entertainment and food that was provided at this spring fiesta. Senor and Senora Bacio sang and danced to Latin American songs. The menu consisted of chili con carne, iced tea, olives, tossed salad, and gingerbread. 95 Inactivated in 1941 because of the onset of war, the University ROTC prot ram was officially re- vived on September 17, 1945. Colonel Harold Keelcy. member of the pre-war ROTC staff, re- turned to organize the department. He was later replaced by Colonel George Honnen, who assumed full responsibility for the corps. Except for returning veterans, male students over 26, and those physically handicapped, all men were required to take a two-year course in military science. The first parade was held in late April with seven attractive co-ed sponsors strutting in full uniform with the battalion. Cadet Major Benjamin Akana, battalion commander, and his charming sponsor, Eva Hunter, led the review. inLim i ROTC El I Sf oi i( n — Helen Gcracimos, Pearl Lau, Lorraine Ching, Eva Hunter, Margaret Wessei, Alva Janscn. and Alana Wong. - r . « f ' Crack Companv r ,„ " » " ) i„ in open i rill - .n(L ' ' iL ' w.

Emphasizing education and understanding throughout the world, diminutive but silver- tongued Misao Ojama placed lirst in the contest with Robert Kiyabu placing second.

Grove Day Mrs. Elizabeth Carr Elbert Yee Board of Publications The duties of the Board of Publications include the transaction of all affairs connected with ASUH publications. It has the power to make contracts for Ka Leo and Ka Palapula as well as the authority to appoint the editors and business managers of the two publications. Besides Ka Leo and Ka Palapala, student publi- cations this year included the ASUH Student Direc- tory edited by Amy Higashihara and the Student Handbook edited by Marian Joy. In the second semester, the BOP decided to publish Ka Leo twice a week for the school year 1946-47 instead of the regular one issue. The BOP rounded up its year ' s work by making the following appointments for 1946-47: Helen Geracimos, Ka Leo editor; Amy Higashihara, Ka Palapala editor; Ruth Murashige, Ka Leo business manager; Itsuyo Sahara, ASUH Student Directory editor; and Melvin Nagasako, Student Handbook editor. Bessie Toishigawa Jennie Yoshioka Ray Higuchi Geraldine Tom i Bessie Toishigawa Ka Leo began its first post-war year with nearly an all-women staff — including the men ' s sports editor. Bessie Toishigawa, conscientious boss lady of the Voice of Hawaii, prodded the phlegmatic stu- dent body with her timely editorials. Helen Geracimos was the competent news editor. Laura June Torres, Jeanette Schumacher, Mew Sunn Chock, Julie Brannen, Alice Yoshimori, Margaret Yamato, Laola Hironaka, Irene Crivello, Elmer Cravhalo, and Helen Au helped editor Helen keep the paper ticking with the latest news. Working with Feature Editor Margaret Chinen were Janet Alter, Helen Uyematsu, Evelyn Won, Sumiko Nakamoto, Alice Fujikawa, and Paul De- vone. Laola Hironaka scooped feature interviews with Manager Frank " Lefty ' O ' Doul of the San Francisco Seals and with Earl M. Finch.

Pete also worked out a column, lii the Sports Light, while Satoki Yamamoto, who joined the stafi ' during the second semester, conducted Jogging Around the Track Oval.

Terue quietly trudged down every week to Paradise to read Ka Leo galley proofs. Also behind the scenes were old-timer Eddie Chong and Graduate Manager Elbert Yee, who patiently checked and helpfully criticized the paper. Business manager was Jennie Yoshioka, with Evelyn Murashige as assistant manager. Keeping Ka Leo out of the red was Ruth Murashige, adver- tising manager. Janet Saito was busy with circula- tion while Ellen Minaai took charge of exchanges. Typing out bills and seeing that Ka Leo reached all subscribers and handling general business duties were Beatrice Chong, Gene Matsuo, Yoshie Ihara, Rose Chun, Alice Tagawa, Nobue Kuwada, Yasuko Hokama, Elizabeth Fujioka, Beverly Nakatani, Florence Kakisako, Yuriko Nagoshi, Beatrice Matsumoto, Janet Chock, Ruth Funaki, Sadako Nonaka, and Satsuki Kozaki. Helen Lim managed the filing of cuts. But it wasn ' t all work . . . Christmas was celebrated by the staff members at Lang Ting ' s chop sui house at Waikiki. The party was complete with an attractive Christmas tree, gifts and plenty of carolling. After the dinner, guests saw Pride of the Alar ' nies at the ' Waikiki theater.

Either by chance or good fortune, all three colleges of the University were represented by the officers elected in May of the previous term. Always willing to do this " Kennessine " bit of entertaining as well as hard work was President Kenneth Nagata from TC. A charming social leader who planned the Freshman Welcome Dance, the Holoku Ball and the ASUH May Day Program was Vice- President lone Rathburn from TC. Versatile swim- ming star, Michic Ma ehara, an Arts and Science student was secretary uhilc Patsy Takemoto, co- manager of the Victory Bond Drive and a student in Applied Science, held the purse-strings of the class as treasurer. The councillors appointed in November were: Marian Lake, Reiko Takakuwa, Margaret Wesscl, Shizue Kuwahara, Earl Robinson, and Roy Hirokawa. Numbering a vengeful 303, the Sophs eagerly awaited the traditional IVosh initiation. However, a new ruling, " No bodily contact, " invoked unex- pectedly by President Sinclair put a crimp in their plans. Temporarily stopped, the Sophs were forced to repress their scalping activities. However, during the last few days of Freshman Week when the Frosh were cockily thinking, " This is a cinch, " hazing flared up suddenly and violently in front of Farrington Hall after Anthropology 150. As soon as the instructor left the class, beady-eyed Sophs .. S H covered all exits and turned a firehose on all who dared to come out. The bewildered neophytes were compelled to take a drenching or go without lunch. Thoroughly soaked and with nothing to lose, the Frosh staged a counter-attack and a tug-of-war ensued. The youDger set almost succeeded in master- ing the situation, but the Sophomores rallied in time to emerge triumphant — but wet! The Freshmen Welcome dance was given by the second-year students at the end of the week as a peace offering, and the first-year greens accepted willingly. Aware of its responsibility in community welfare, the class collaborated with TC Club in sponsoring the Victory Chest Drive in October. Led by Kenneth Nagata, the solicitors egged the school on to meet its quota. The Holoku Ball, next on .schedule, was held on December 15. In a restful Hawaiian atmosphere, members of all classes relaxed from second six-week exam strains and turned their attention from flirting with books to flirting — period. The inevitable draft had eliminated a number of standout athletes such as Richard Mamiya, Juji Hanada, George Hong, and Jim Araki. However, Earl Robinson, a wiz in tennis; Roy Hirokawa, baseball ace; Larry Matsuo, Andrew Seki, and Stanley Kim, basketball stars; and Stanley Kimura. a promising swimmer; ably represented the Sophs in sports. The star of stars was George Oakley, sensational trackster, who bettered the long stand- ing lOO-yard dash record of 10.1 seconds by .1 second and also won the 220, 440, and the high J 08 1946 Patsv Takcmoto Rov Hiriikaw.i, Martiarct Wcsscl. Rciko Takakuwa, Earl Robinson. Jump. The parodoxical fact was that in spite of Oakley ' s unprecedented performance, the class placed third in the inter-class meet. Sports seemed to be a natural for Sophomore women. Prominent on the Varsit} ' swimmint; team were: Esther Mukai, who established a new record for the junior 150-yard individual medley; Michie Maehara, and Reiko Takakuwa. The class also boasted Viola Tracy, Barbara Eby, and Eleanor Albao — all-around athletes whose prowess inspired confidence in their teammates. Much of the credit for winning the championship in the inter-class touch football tournament goes to them. It was in one of these spirited frays that referee " Pancho " Devone, with visions of ambulance, swore that his hair had turned gray. The tennis team of Matsuko Kuwahara, Janet Chock, Barbara Eby, Viola Tracy, Alice Cameron, Eleanor Albao, and Charlotte Aspuria, tied for first place with the much experienced Seniors. According to the previous accounts, the impres- sion is that Sophomore women were all muscle- bound. Athletically inclined or not, the girls had ' huba-huba " qualities. Helen Geracimos (Cauca- sian beaut} ' queen), Alice Cameron, Alice Brude- nell, Marion Joy, Michie Maehara, Chic Nishimura, Jane Fujii, Florence Kakisako, Sarah Sato, Joanne Sakai, Margaret Wessel, Marian Ellis, Lorraine Ching, Almira Ahn, Kyang Hi Moon, Evelyn Choi, and Ruby Wong were all contestants in the Ka Palapala Beauty Contest. These with Harriet Holt, ASUH May Day queen, gave a fellow reason to be a he. Another field that Sophomores insisted on clut- tering up was journalism. Ka Leo found newsy Sophs right down its staff list. Helen Geracimos, news editor; Margaret Chinen, feature editor; Ann Tsutsumi, society editor; Jean Iwasaki, sports editor; Ruth Murashige, advertising manager; Janet Saito, circulation manager; Ellen Minaai, exchange man- ager; and Reiko Takakuwa, author of the breezy column, " Rainbow Athletes at a Glance. " A big job done well was the Victory Bond drive in March. Under the co-chairmenship of Patsy Takemoto and Earl Robinson, the class collected the unexpected sum of $6,990, tripling the goal. Rhetorics was not an unknown art to the Sophs with Misao Oyama winning the ASUH oratorical contest. She also placed first in the Statehood Letter Contest and was awarded a trip to the Volcano House. Winning rv o of the four places of honor on the Varsity Debate team in May were Earl Robinson and Patsy Takemoto. Alert in YWCA affairs were Evelyn Tara, elected president in February, and Jean Yamauchi, chair- man of the Individual and Living committee.

With popular and pretty Jean McKillop as their president, the class assumed its new ro ' .e as part of the " upper " strata together whh the Seniors. Class Prexy Jean, having served as class secretary during her freshmen year and having participated in innumerable ASUH activities during her Sopho- more year, took reign with accumulated abilities at her command. In spite of her heavy duties as secretary of HYD she dexterously managed the Junior class. Helping Jean were unassuming Beatrice Nosse, vice-president; and untiring Jane Okamoto, secretary. Evelyn Murashige, TC Club president, handled accoun ts of the class and was instrumental in keeping the class out of the red. The officers met early in the year aful selected as their class councillors: Lorna Bowen, Victor Mori, Joseph Dizon, Yoshio Yamaguchi, Peggy Ishida, and Harris Suyama. Firm in the belief that organized recreation stimulates social maturity, this comopolite council of brain-trusts aidid the officers in tlie planning and coordinating of Jimior functions. On December 16, 1943, the class picnicked at Hanauma Bay from 2:00 to 9:30 p ni. Although less came than was planned for by chairman Victor Mori, those present en ' oyed the dance and the evening swim. The next successful class affair was the Valentine Dance on February 16. The chief attraction of the dance was the coronation of the Queen-of-the- Hearts Jean McKillop, on a throne set against a huge glittering silvery heart. The queen, graci- ously accepted the crown from President Gregg M. Sinclair. Attendants Cynthia Chun and Margaret Kurisu added to the perfect harmony of the decora- tions which drew compliments from those present. The council met in March to discuss and lay preliminary plans for the tr.iditional Junic r Prom. Amiable Tetsuro Ushijima, elected to coordinate the prom committee, found capable assistants in Judith Ito and Emily lizaki. The date of the elaborate Prom which had been scheduled for the I Stli of May was later moved to the 17th in order to have the Esquires play. Juniors on the Real Dean Selection Committee bickered for weeks on the nominations and hnally presented its findings and selections to the ASL ' H (Council for approval. Chairman of the commit- tee, Kenneth Nagata, defended the committee ' s selection eloquently. On the track oval, the Juniors emergeil triumph- ant. With athletes like Stanley Chow, Clifford Kuba, Ted Tsukiyama, Bernard Yim, Victor Mori, 112 1946 Class Councillors: Left tot, ir ' ---Yoshio Yan,aguch7 ' " " ■ ' " ' ' " ' ' " Z " - S Tetsuro Ushijima, Alfred Laureta, and Wadsworth Yee, the Juniors claimed the Bert Hooper Track Trophy with 61 points. Outstanding on the team was Wadsworth Yee, brilliant middle distance negotiator, whose last lap sprints added color to the meet. Rose Kamuri, Gene Matsuo, Thelma Au, Gracie Mae Chang, Sarah Kaya, and Yaeko Ogata were the salients in the Junior class ' s bid for WAA honors. The galaxy of Junior leaders ran. Presidents: Calvin Ontai, ASUH; Hazel Ikenaga, AWS; Alana Wong, Te Chih Sheh; Margaret Young, Yang Chung Hui; Rose Kamuri, Commerce Club; Mil- dred Ching. Phi Lambda Chi; and Joseph Dizon, Christian Club. And there was Amy Higashihara, Contest Editor of Ka Palapala; Vivian Ching, ASUH Secretary; Bessie Toishigawa, Ka Leo Editor; Ralph Toyota, Chairman of ASUH State- hood Committee; and Nathalie Smith and Kei- chiro Yamato, ASUH representatives on Governor Ingram Stainback ' s Statehood Committee. Thus, the class of 1947, augmented by stalwart veterans concluded the year with higher goals envisaged for the coming year. 113 That big?

V» £ ' ■ ' 1 lors Geraldine Tom Ellen Miller With President Consuelo Olivas at the helm, the Seniors played a very active part in campus life this year. Alth()ut;h they entered as freshmen in 1942 and found a phlegmatic student body as well as a paucity of student activities, the Seniors will leave the campus with the satisfaction of knowing that through their efforts the ASUH was set definitely on its course to recovery. Without belittling the con.scientious efforts of the other seniors, nine Seniors were selected as Real Deans for their un- selfish four years ' contribution to the ASUH. The Seniors contributed their share of fighting men in World War II. Yutaka Nakahata and Stanley Chow were in the China-Burma-India theatre of operations, while James Kamo, Paul Nishimura, " Sus " Yamamoto, and Harry Shiroma fought in the ETO with the famed 442nd Infantry Regiment. Kimball Chun and Francis Kauka were stationed on various islands in the Pacific. A kaleidoscopic view of their activities shows that . . . ... In December, the Seniors sponsored the New Year ' s Eve Dance. The affair was an overwhelm- ing success, and the proceeds filled the coffers of the class treasury to help defray the expenses of graduation. ... In January, the Seniors took charge of the March of Dimes Drive on the campus in conjunc- tion with the national drive for persons stricken with infantile paralysis. ... In February, after the nerve-racking week of finals for the first semester, the class held a picnic on the beautiful estate of Kamokila Campbell in Ewa. Those who got there on trucks envied the " bourgeoisie " who managed to find seats on private cars, for the trek was long and trying with the bumps. . . . During class week, the Seniors put out a daily KA LEO edited by Yutaka Nakahata with Jennie Yoshioka as business manager. The paper not only delineated the events of the day and fea- tured outstanding class members, but also included innervating editorials, which advocated " clear cut " programs for the ASUH. ... In the field of sports, the Seniors obtained their share of championships. The Seniors annexed the 5 ' 6 " volleyball crown, and also won the Novice Basketball Championship. Outstanding athletes of the class were Kimball Chun, assistant track coach; Hajime Kamo, intcrclass wrestling champ of 1940- il ; and Francis Kauka, who was a four year letter- man in swimming and football before the war. . . . The Senior girls copped first place in tennis. They were also active in volleyball, baseball, and bowling. The roster of feminine athletes include Consuelo Olivas, Beatrice Chong, Charlotte Wong, Yaeko Shigezawa, and Nora Ikeda. . . . Paul Na kamura, chairman of the Board of Debate and Forensics, and Norman Ueda repre- 116 1946 Kathcnne Kuwahara Shicko Okazaici Ji iin Ono E iko Kikudome Paul Nakamura 1. sented the Seniors in the ASUH Oratorical Contest and the Berndt Extemporaneous Oratorical Contest. . . . The Seniors were well represented in the Theatre Guild. Business Manager Lani Chang, Charlotte Wong, Geraidine Tom, Nobuko Kaneda, and Consuelo Olivas were instrumental in resus- citating the organization, which was inactive during the war. ... In the field of journalism, the work of Jennie Yoshioka, Yutaka Nakahata, Clara Funasaki, Caro- line Dizon, editor of KA LEO in 1944-45, Dorothy- Goo, campus representative for MADEMOISELLE, and Raymond Higuchi, editor of the 1946 KA PALAPALA has been noteworthy. Yutaka Nakahata was elected by the Seniors to deliver the Ivy Oration, while speakers chosen to represent the three colleges were Florence Ching, applied science; Jean Ono, teachers college, and Clara Funasaki, arts and sciences. The traditional tea was given in honor of the graduating class by President and Mrs. Sinclair at Arcadia, the home of former Governor and Mrs. Walter Frear. Hawaiian Town was the scene of the elaborate Senior Banquet. The Baccaulaureate Service was held at St. Andrew ' s Cathedral, with Bishop Kennedy as speaker. The climax of four years of college was the commencement at the Arthur L. Andrews amphi- theatre on June i 1 . Being the first class to graduate after World War II, the class of ' 46 will go into the community as alert and active citizens with a fuller understanding of their responsibilities in this world. 117 Connie hands Yee the Senior Class gift — the receipt for a handsome radio for Heinenway Hail lounge. j: The Senior Picnic — King Frankfurter never loses — but magnetic Yukio is always there too.

Now move your eyeballs a little to the left and marvel on the Kuykendal brothers — Delman and Dick — • some sprawling. This photo should have been sound tracked, right? AlthoiiL ' h forced to suspend many varsity sports because of spasmodic departures of men students for the armed forces, the athletic department main- tained a wide variet} ' of intramural and extra- curricula sports competition. For both men and women the department of physical education has always provided a pro- t;ram offering the keenest and most extensive participation. This year the inllux of women into the various fields of sports activities very noticeably paralleled their dcmination of ASUH activities. The Women ' s Athletic Association, under the capable leadership of Hester Kong, carried on with throttles open. The emphasis, however, was still largely on intramural competition. Though the man shortage rocked previous dreams, the Deans managed to field a formidable basketball team in the Junior AAU League. The familiar cry of " Fight, team fight! " was missed by all. Students bemoaned the loss of the colorful football games when the University ' s gridiron machine was suspended for the duration. Sports ' 45 Uli.lXS -ISutlom ivw.

Basketball League with five wins and three losses. The Rainbows qualified for the round-robin series but suffered two losses in the play-olT to lose the basketball bauble. The floor artists meshed the hoops for a season ' s total of } A2 points to the opponents ' 270. Robert Chuck and Juji Hanada were the offensive threats while Joseph Tom and Richard Mamiya played consistent defensive games for the college quintet. Bert Chan Wa and his cohorts introduced for the first time the spectacular one-thrcc-one defense. Throughout the season this defense baffled and bottled up the opposi- tion. Head Mentor Chan Wa and manager George Tanaka employed fast breaks to capitalize against their taller adversaries. -- ' " ' =;;f::r:?;s- 140 IN ' IRA-MURAL rill.- intr.i-inural b.isk(.fball toiirnaiiKiit ciulctl with the hit;hly .uit;nicntcd I ' rcshiiicn teams takiiit; top honors in all three divisions.

' Two of America ' s foremost tennis artists, Don Budge and Frankie Parker, gave a thrilling exhibition before a large student crowd. Tall, lanky, loose-muscled Budge masterfully slammed and artfully placed his shots to defeat the taut-muscled Parker in two straight sets. Budge consistently worked his way to the net to place his shots, and the ease in which he accom- plished the difficult advance to the vantage position left the 4()() enthusiastic spectators talking about it for days. Parker, one time National AAU Singles Champ, proved that he was an ace in his own right with his brilliant retaliation in the second set. The match was scheduled through the untiring effort of Miss May Gay, acting head of the phj ' sical education department, as part of the program to invite numerous sport stars to the campus.

WAA To enrich the students ' collcsje life by arousing in academic minds an active in- terest in sports, the Women ' s Athletic As- sociation carried through a well planned program of intra-mural sports. Executive officers of the organization were: Hester Kong, president; Mutsumi Takamura, vice-president; Nora Ikeda, sec- retary; Mildred Iwanaka, eligibility chair- man; and Mrs. La Verne Bennett, adviser. Outstanding women athletes who re- ceived gold medals at the annual " WAA banquet were: Volleyball, Hope Yee and Viola Tracy; swimming. Chic Miyamoto and Hester Kong; baseball, Nora Ikeda and Millie Iwanaka; bowling, Esther Chang and Martha Nitta; ping pong, Mabel and Maude Nishikawa; badminton, Matsuko Kuwahara and Hester Kong; basketball, Barbara Eby and Thelma Au; and archery, Jerry Mikaru and Yaeko Shigezawa. 143 Aquacade The WAA uquacade. originally sclicdukd tu t.ikc place in January was postponed to May because of unfavorable weather and a shortatje of participants. Hester H. Mattox who left for the mainland in the meantime was aptly replaced by Barbara Silverman as the chairm.in of the WAA sub-committee in chart;e of the aqua-festival. Under Barbara ' s untirint; efforts plans to incorporate an interpretation of Hawaii in the water paijeant were developed. On May Day a capacity student assemblasje squeezed onto the bleachers at the swimming pool and witnessed feminine pulchritude at its best. The throng heartily applauded the formations and rhythmic swimming done with artistic precision by the women. From all standpoints the 1945 Aquacade was a great success and to Barbara and Mrs. Laverne Bennett go the credit for a masterful job of conditioning the aquabelles.

Numerous outstanding island track talents plus spikesters from the armed forces patricipated. The carnival was hi-lighted by the coronation of Barbara Eaves as Queen of the Day. With her two attendants, brunette Jean McKillop and red-headed Lei Manley, the blonde Queen pre- sented awards to the winners. The blue ribbon event of the day was the Hemenway four-mile relay named in honor of Charles R. Hemenway. The Citywide AA captured this event by a wide margin from a fast held of hve teams. Participation of such nationally known standouts as Bob Peoples of the Navy and John Yonaker of the Marines added zest and color to the meet this year. invimm ' k " - ,i u •- ■ -• 1 - ra , ' % Home camp of the Rainbows, the UH quintet . invited to play in Madison Square in 1947. Atliletics rfgained a step toward pre-war status this year. The resumption of such varsity sports as track, tennis, swimming, and baseball, abandoned since December 7, 1941, was the true indication. Only our gridiron eleven was still missing from the varsity picture. Varsity swimming was spurred by the appoint- ment of the nationally famed Soichi Sakamoto of Maui to our coaching staff. All eyes turned to swimming, and throughout the season the expectant public glued its attention to the University aqua- world. Thomas Kaulukukui, our football mentor who went off to the wars, came back to Manoa to pre- pare in fielding a powerful football aggregation for the coming 1947 season. Forty-five enthusiastic aspirants answered the call for spring training, and from all indications, the Manoans will be looking forward to a bang-up year. Track, tennis and basketball teams enjoyed a partially successful season. Sports 1946 jOk 1 Dr. Hubert Brown Hebden Porteus Dan Ainoa Dr. Chark-s Moore Board of Athletic Control With the return of pre-war sports activities on the campus, the Board of Athletic Control once more assumed its function as one of the most powerful ASUH committees in charge of the entire UH athletic program. The board accepted an invitation to play in a prc-season football game sponsored by the Aha Kokua O University to raise scholarship funds for deserving athletes. Members of the board also approved plans to send the University football team to the mainland in 1946 and send the swimming team in 1947. The board approved the College of the Pacific football game on November 1 at Stockton, Cali- fornia and a game with Fresno State College on November 1 I at Fresno, California. Representatives to the Hawaiian AAU appointed by the Board were: Dr. Hubert Brown, Tommy Kaulukukui, Dr. Bruce White, Edwin Mookini, and Calvin Ontai. The women ' s rifle team was formed as a minor sport for women with the approval of the Board. The varsity women ' s rifle team was reactivated in the second semester under the leadership of Marian Ellis. Members of the BAC were: Dr. Hubert Brown, chairman; Hebden Porteus, president of the alumni association; Dan Ainoa, alumni representative; Dr. Charles Moore, chairman of t he philosophy department; Tommy Kaulukukui, graduate man- ager and football coach; Dr. Bruce White, dean or student personnel; Calvin Ontai, ASUH presi- dent; Edwin Mookini and Donald Joe, student representatives. - - - ' V ' , r ; fl titsih s V, Varsity Track With a nucleus of four lettermen from the 1941 Hawaiian AAU championship team, the Varsity track team was fielded for the first time m four years. Lettermen who constituted the core of the team included half-miler Kimball Chun and milers Wadsworth Yee and Satoki Yamamoto who was elected captain. Alfred Laureta, hii;h jumper, was another letterman. Although Chun was unable to participate in the meets, he as- sisted Coach GeorL;e Tharp in a fervent drive to induce as many candidates as possible to try out for the team. Together, they uncovered and developed excellent prospects from the eager but inexperienced turnouts. Tt)mmy Kaulukukui, 19.t9-41 track coach, also helped the men on the field. Key man on the team was George Oakley, versatile sophomore sprinter and jumper. Ben Akana and Clarence Fong displayed speed and stamina in the 440 yard dash. George Duncan and Calvin . ,,.

In the triangular meet held on April 2 S, the Universit}- team lost to Citywide. Manana Naval Barracks trailed in third place. Oakley triumphed in the 44() yard dash and the broad jump, and tied for second in the high jump with teammate Alfred Laureta. Captain Yamamoto broke the tape to win the 880. Oakley, Yamamoto, Laureta, Woods. Hughes, and Ontai com- bined with Citywide to form the Oahu all-star team that defeated the Maui all-stars 74i i to 29? ' i at Kahului, Maui. In the 20th Annual Rainbow Relays, Cit}wide defeated Army Hj, and the Universit) ' . The 4-star event of the day was the mile relay. The UH quartet of Fong, Oakley, Akana, and Yee won with Oakley running a great second lap and with Yee ably meeting the challenge of the Army anchor man. Eight new records were established in the Territorial AAU championships on June 1, 1946. Oakley won the 200 meter low hurdles and placed second in the broad jump. Wadsworth Yee gave his usual, thrilling final spurt to place second in the 800 meter. Goss, Yamamoto, Laureta, Woods, Anzai, and Patty won places in the open individual events. In the novice division, Shifirani took the 200 meter low hurdles. Lctter-jacket-award winners were Oakley, Laureta. Yamamoto, Yee, Akana, Fong, Woods, Goss, Shintani, Anzai, Hughes, Ontai and Patty.

Rut here in Manoa Valley, war-time conditions lim- ited our version to a 2 out of 3 games contest between the freshmen and the iipperclassmen. Thrills and excitement were plentiful as the scrappy I ' reshmen outscored the heavier upperclassmen in the first tussle — 12 to 6. Embarrassed by the defeat, the upper- classmen dui; into the turf in the second fray for a brilliant defensive victory — 7 to 0, In the final game, the return to standard time forced the teams to play in almost complete darkness in the last half. The successful aerial offensives employed by both both teams in the last frame was ironical. Sam Nakamura carried the ball for the first upperclassmen touchdown. The Frosh team came right back as Stanley Himeno skirted right end for a tally, and the con- version put them ahead 7 to 6. As darkness swept over the field, Stanley Kim pulled down a long wobbly pass from Kwan Hi Lim to tip the score 12 to 7. Conversion was good. But in the dying seconds of the game, a long cross-field touchdown heave from Joe Kuroda to Stanley Himeno clicked and the conversion gave the Freshmen a hair- pin margin of victory — 14 to 13.

Basketball After a rather slow .ind uneventful start in the Junior AAU League, the Deans picked up speed and barely missed the round robins. In the Waialua AC sponsored invitational tour- ney, the Deans romped home with the champion- ship trophy with three straight triumphs. Stellar additions to the regulars for this tourney were: Richard Mamiya, Donald Fong, Joe Tom, Harry Kahuanui, Paul Kim. Ronald Kiaaina. and Tommy Brown. The Greens first outscored Wailuku Sugar AC 54-40. The Maui hardwood floor artists played brilliantly for over three and a half quarters before succumbing to the drive of the Greens. Coach ( han Wa employed unit substitution and a man- to-man defense in wearing down the more experi- enced Maui hoopsters. In the second game the Deans routed the Pioneer Mill AC, another Maui team, 58-35. Mamiya ' s outstanding performance inspired the Deans into toppling the heretofore unbeaten Waia- lua quintet 5.v4() in the playoff tussle to basket the cage title. Baseball Considering the fact that the University ' s base- ball team entered the fast Honolulu Winter League with a roster of inexperienced players, its record of 3 wins and 4 losses is not only justifiable but commendable. The Deans, coached by Jesse James Kelly, was tagged " Whiz Kids " after they effectively bunted out a 7 to 2 victory over Chinen ' s Service Station. However, they were watched very closely in the following games and lost to the experienced Waia- lae team by the score of 1 1 to 2, and to a heavy hitting HAD team by a 9 to 1 score. Nevertheless, the UH was determined to be back in the pennant race and played zealously against the Vagabonds in a heartbreaker. The Deans lost in the second half of the 10th inning when the Vagabonds scored a run to tip the scale 9 to 8 in their favor.

Entering the next game as underdogs to the Acme Brewers in one of the most exciting games of the series, the Deans played stubbornly for 13 innings. Himeno ' s clout over the Moiliili fence gave the University the deciding margin. This upset necessitated a rematch against the Acmes to deter- mine which team was to enter the championship round robin. The Acmes ' experience told in the second game as they pounded out a 22 to 12 victory to eliminate the University. 157 Varsity Swimming With th-j arrival of Coach Soichi Sakamoto of Maui lame as head tank mentor of the Collet;ians. the 1 946 Varsity swim squad enjoyed a banner season. The nucleus of the team was built around Charlie Oda and Robert Iwamoto, veterans of the 442nd Res imental Combat Team. These aqua-fame twins splashed their way to nLiinerous Hawaiian Open Championships. Oda was easily the outstanding swimmer of the two- night Hawaiian AAU Men ' s Indoor Championship held at Elizabeth Memorial Pool by copping the 100 yd., 200 yd., and iOO yd. freestyle events and swimming on two winning relay teams. Robert Iwamoto, up and coming protege of Coach Saka- moto established a new Hawaiian record of 5:44.9 seconds in the 440 yd. freestyle, Men ' s Junior Championship. Roy Kesner and Stanley Kimura, both novice swimmers, established themselves as strong con- tenders for future junior and senior events. Coach Sakamoto, goliath of the aqua-world, needs no introduction to the local sports fan. Soon after his appointment as head-coach and head- instructor in swimming, he lost no time in drilling his mermen into top competitive form. Under his inspiring leadership the Hawaii University Swim- ming Club was organized. Peter Matsuoka, junior, did a superb job of managing the varsity squad. His service was invaluable to the team ' s success. Tnf lo bottom — Charlie Oihi. Kul.til hvaniolo. IV-lc Matsuoka (maii- agLT). Stanley Ktntura, and liill Smith.

Though it operated under adverse 164 conditions, many students interested in sports bene- fited from the WAA ' s extensive program. The women organized and managed their own sport tournaments with the WAA as their central committee. Each month, one or more sports were introduced and classes, under able managers, vied with each other for championships. The women ' s sport year opened with the ever popular volleyball tournament and ended with badminton. On Novmber I, Mrs. LaVerne Bennett, who had guided the WAA to its present mature stage, left on a leave of absence, and the organization func- tioned without an adviser for some time. Foresee- ing her leave, however, the council, helped by Mrs. Bennett, had formulated complete plans for the year. When Miss Lillian Gibson stepped into her position, the sports activities were in full swing. In addition to its regular schedule of interclass sports tournaments, the WAA conducted the first ASUH-sponsored AAU pre-championship swim- ming meet of the year. It also conducted the an- nual national inter-collegiate swimming meet, in liicli the L ' H r Miii placed third, .md tlu- R.imhow interscholastic niect hci un In rlic ASl ' H last year. On May 23, outstandini; womtn athletes were hoiiorei,! at an annual banquet at which time 100- piiint jackets, letters, and med.ds were awartled them.

Hawaii Youth for Democracy The Hawaii Youth for Democracy is an inter- racial, inter-faith youth organization dedicated to character building and education in the spirit of democracy and freedom. Though the organization was not officially recognized by the ASUH until late in January, 1946, students who had been awakened by the consequences of the war realized as far back as April, 19-45 the need for such an organization. On the campus, HYD stands for academic free- dom, the right of students and professors to express themselves freely, and a campaign for more scholar- ships and dormitories. In the community, HYD strongly supports the campaign for statehood. In national and international affairs, HYD stands for an America progressively freer of prejudice and poverty, and a nation working with the United Nations to preserve peace. Topics of the forums conducted on the campus this year were: " How Today ' s Youth Shapes the World of Tomorrow, " held on October IS; ' Wages and Prices " on March 2; " Why You Should Vote " on March . 0; " Post-War Japan " on April 6; " Russia ' s Foreign Policy " on April 27; and " Is the American Press Free! ' " on May 18. A successful Korean Clothing Drive was con- ducted on the campus during February 13-21. Mary Matsumoto was chairman of the drive. On International Student ' s Day, the ASUH ap- pointed the HYD to take charge of the program. It featured a convocation with President Gregg M. Sinclair, the Rev. Mineo Katagiri, and the Rev. Allen Hackett as speakers. International songs were sung by the 372nd Infantry chorus. During Brotherhood Week in February, the HYD presented a convocation at Farrington Hall. It featured John Lansing ' s All Adds 111) to Freedo n by the Theatre Guild. Officers of the club were: Carolyn Ogata president; Clara Funasaki and Gene Matsuo, vice- presidents; Jean McKillop, executive secretary; Chieko Nishimura, secretary-treasurer; and Dr. Charles J. Engard, adviser. Members of the executive committee were: Mar- garet Danley, Nathalie Smith, Mary Matsumoto, Dorothy Furukawa, Jennie Yoshioka, Marjorie Okamoto, anil [ " iisako Yahiku.

Teachers College Club With 160 members led by an active and interested council, the Teachers College Club was rejuvenated on the campus this semester. Evelyn Murashige, energetic president, worked with a very cooperative council: Elizabeth Fujioka, vice- president; Ruth Murashige, secretary; Charlotte Aspuria, treasurer; Phoebe Ho and Midori Okada, directors; Alice Fujikawa, house committee; Almira Ahn, social committee; Setsuko Tamura, education committee; Fudeko Naka, membership committee; Kenneth Nagata, convocation committee; Yuriko Kobayashi, athletics committee; Lee McKinney, debate committee; and Michiko Nagao, health committee. Albert J. McKinney, adviser; Robert Clopton, faculty director; and E. Vern Sayers, dean; met with the council twice a month. At the last luncheon meeting held on May 18, tentative plans for the fall were drawn up. Two general meetings were held during the semester. Lieut. Ija Korner, clinical psychologist, spoke on " Personal Adjustment " at the first meeting on March 16. The education committee was in charge of the other successful meeting on April 25, at which time Philip S. Holzman, clinical psychol- ogist, spoke on " Sex. " A skit written by George Lorch was presented by Hironobu Hino, Toshiyuki Nakasone, and Ensign Russ Guyver. Chieko Nishi- mura and Maria Ponce rendered vocal solos, accompanied by Tomie Yamashita. Readings in the English dialect by Frank McGhie were included on the program. The social committee, working together with the Sociology Club, was responsible for the barn dance on Campus Day. TC committee chairmen for this affair were: Irene Okazaki, decoration; Hiroshi Minami and Jane Fujii, orchestra; and Tomie Yamashita, program. Athletic chairman Yuriko Kobayashi arranged for a goodwill inter-club volleyball tournament. Clubs participating were Hale Laulima, Home Economics, Pre-Med, and Sociology Club. The TC team swept the series undefeated. A moonlight picnic at Hanauma Bay on May 1 1 concluded the semester ' s activities. Diligent worker Edward Sakai was general chairman.

Atherton House Club, the only men ' s dormitory club virtually on the campus, took an active part in campus activities. Its unique membership is com- prised of students from all the islands and veterans from all over the world united in polyracial fellowship. During the past two years, Atherton House Club suffered many changes in its membership. Men were continually being drafted by the Army, and it was a matter of who ' s next every month. Per- suasive Ray Tachibana, president elect for 1945 was immediately inducted and replaced automatic- ally by Elias Yadao. Mamoru Shimokusu succeeded Epy as vice-president in a subsequent election. Photographer Ben Ranada, another inductee served as secretary. Satoru Anzai, coke machine boss, was re-elected in 1 946 as treasurer. Other 1 946 officers were: Yukio Nakama, president; Suewo Okazaki, vice-president; Rodney Nakamoto, secretary, and Coach Soichi Sakamoto, adviser. In early January Col. Patrick, returning from his duties in the Pacific, gave a stirring report on the impoverished conditions in the East. " Bull sessions " conducted in any of the rooms were the favorite pastime. Topics ranged widely. Returning veterans divulged innumerable anecdotes from personal experiences to attentive listeners, and comparing accounts among themselves, all gained a deeper insight into the peoples and prob- lems of the world. Midnight snacks were frequently brought into these discussions by dormers returning from a party or dinner at a friend ' s. Practically every member of Atherton partici- pated in some sport. Ping pong was the favorite. In a club tournament held in April, 1946, dimin- utive " champ " Nakama, under pressure, succumbed to the steady playing of Hironobu Hino. Atherton ' s basketball team managed to share in the 1946 Interclub basketball championship despite dismay- ing loss of some of its star players to the army. A spring formal, in essence, a welcoming dance for the returning veterans and the highlight social event of 1946, was held on February 30. The sands of time seemed to flow fast for Atherton men. It seemed that initiation was always only yesterday. And so it went throughout the two happy years as men seeped through Atherton, accumulating in their short stays accounts of inef- faceable memories — " bull sessions " cramming for exams, midnight snacks, sports, dances, and the many hours devoted to the promotion of ASUH activities. 1Q-I6- Sittitifi, left to riyht : Horace Hirose, Yukio Na- kama, Lawrence Lau, Peter Matsuoka, Harvey Yemoto, David Inafuku, Robert Lee, Toru Arisumi.

A get-together to promote better acquaintances between the instructors of the Econ depa rtment and students was held early in the year. The tradi- tional Commerce Club ball came later in the fall of 1945. 1046 -Front row, left to right: Okoto Fiijimoto, Rose Kfimuri, .Mary Fiijinioto.

Second semester officers were: Jean Yamauchi, president; Beverly Nakatani. vice- president; Ellen Kawakami and Karleen Atebara, secretaries; and Osamu Nakamura, treasurer. Dr. Cameron was adviser. Pre Le2;al Club Early in J.inu.ir) ' 19 I i a i roiip of scltct students formed a discussion group. These were pioneer students in search of an answer to their desire for an organization capable of hinging itself on the study of law. Under the leadership of Richard Kosaki the Pre-Legal Club was organized. Kosaki was inducted into the Army shortly afterwards and is a lieutenant with the army of occupation in Japan. It was not until the fall of 1944 that the Pre- Legal Club had its real start under the inspiring leadership of Nelson Doi, president. Morris Shinsato, who was inducted into the army later, did much to lay the groundwork for the success of the club by writing its constitution. During the year leadership changed hands from Doi to Bernard Gramberg, and finally to Revocato Medina. The purpose of the club: " To stimulate thought and discussion on current problems with emphasis on adequate knowledge, logical thinking and clarity of expression. " Being primarily a discussion group, emphasis was placed on the exchange of informa- tion in the legal field for the benefit of its members. Mr. Ralph C. Hoeber, the adviser, highlighted the year ' s program by presenting from time to time many of the problems facing a pre-legal stu- dent. ( 1 ) Why study law? Among reasons given were; studying law to aid one in business, in edu- cation, or as a springboard to politics. ( 2 ) Where to go to study law? Prominence of law schools was disregarded and night schools were highly recommended. Pfc. Larry Buffer led members in the presenta- tion and hearing of law cases and in discussing the merits of the decision and the law as applied to the particular cases. Bernard Gramberg conducted sessions of speech practice with emphasis on the power of expression. The Pre-Legal Club popularly referred to by its members as just another " class session " has pro- duced two ASUH presidents. Nelson Doi and Calvin Ontai. Stiles Nelson Do,.

' ' meer s Club A reat deal was accomplished in fostering fellowship amon engineering students and creating interest in Engineering by this club. Although members were being inducted into the Armed Forces monthly, the club ' s activities were carried on by those remaining or returning. The first activity of the club was a get-together. It was a field day with luncheon in the engineering building and a basketball game between upperclassmen and freshmen in the gym. A moonlight picnic was held in November, 1945 with the members of the Home Ec club at the Lanikai beach house of Dr. A. J. Schnack. A group of 135 enjoyed the outing. The most memorable event of the year was the Christmas Eve dance. 1945 — Front ro7c. left to rif ht : Tooru Murakami, Satoru Niimoto, Harrison Chong, Katsumi Morita, Francis Man, James Ouchi, Walter Kawano, Ichiro Tanaka, Lincoln Kaneshige.

These two activities were preceded by a rush period in November with a traditional tea for fresh- man women held in the Mabel Smyth Memorial auditorium. The pledgees of 1944-45 were hostesses at a luncheon held at the Halekulani Hotel in January for all active members of the sorority. They also managed a successful candy sale as their pledge project. A group luncheon concluded the activities for 1945. Officers for last year were Catherine Lees, president; Mavis Haglund, vice-president; Edith Emerson, secretary; Shirley Cowan, treasurer; and Mrs. Carol Orne, adviser. This year the Gamma Chi Sigma initiated its rush period with a tea at the Mabel Smyth audi- torium in October. Shortly after the tea, three rush parties were given. The first was a moonlight beach picnic at Barbara Bown ' s at Waimanalo while the others were an informal dance at Virginia Turtle ' s Manoa home, and a sukiyaki dinner at the Uluniu Club. Officers this year were: Peggy Lees, president; Harriet Mclntyre, secretary; Catherine Lees, treas- urer; and Mrs. Carol Orne, adviser. New members were initiated in February at the week-end house-patry at Kailua. 181 1V45 Front ruw. left to right: Helen Yoshiniori, lietsy H;imamoto.

Reunion of all past members — a re kindling of reminiscence. Now, ready Hui liwi The only choral organization on the campus, Hui liwi provides an opportunity for women stu- dents interested in vocal music to get together to sing and have fun. Consuelo Olivas, vice-president of the club was acting president for this year. Corinthia Puaa served as secretary-treasurer and Mrs. D. Kahananui, adviser. The members of the club assist at any event where choral music is desired. They were at their busiest during the Christmas season. They sang at th2 Christmas campus worship service which was held at the Church of the Crossroads and also went carolling at Pearl Harbor, appearing before men on the ships. But the biggest job came when they pa:ticipat;d in the presentation of the " Messiah " which was sponsored by the Honolulu Chamber of Commerce, the I4th US Naval District Chap- lain ' s OHice and the HalfMidPac Special Service Oflice. A reunion for alumni and a welcome get-together fo " new members of Hui liwi took place in October at Hemenway Hall. 186 Hui Pookela llui PiH)kcla, woiiKii ' s liomirary society of the University of Hawaii, was ort;anized in 1928 with Dean Dora Lewis as its first adviser. Its member- ship, limited to outstanding junior and senior women, is seiectjd twice a year on the basis of service, leadership, scholarship, and character. Althoui h the club as a whole did not appear in the limelii ht of activities very often, each mem- ber gave her unselfish service to campus activities. Mrs. Dorothy P.

With a two- fold purpose of education and social participation. Phi Lambda Chi pursued a varied program throughout the past two years. Its total membership was increased to approximately fifty by 1946. Members held a Halloween party on Novem- ber 31, 1945, in the faculty room in Hemenway Hall. Here in a dim and eerie atmosphere filled with jack-o ' -lanterns and masks, the neophytes were duly initiated. The organization was consistently popularized by its Chinese pretzels and cookies which met the approving taste of campus dilettantes. In Decem- ber, 1945, approximately 20 dozens of crispy peanut butter cookies and pretzels were sold on the campus in a matter of minutes. Under Arlene Kim ' s chairmanship, delicious homemade cookies were sent to the servicemen in the islands as surprise Christmas packages. The gifts were delivered to the men through the courtesy of the American Red Cross. During Christmas vacation the club motored to Kailua beach for a picnic which included a thrilling boat ride off Waimanalo. Peculiarly, no one felt seasick in spite of the choppy waters. The club heard a lecture on " Wartime Mar- riages, " by the Rev. Paul B. Waterhouse. Club officers elected for this year were: first semester: Mildred Ching, president; Marian Ching, vice-president; Violet Chang, secretary; and Ruth Date, treasurer. For the second semester: Violet Chung, Benjamin Fukunaga, Ruby Wong, and Ruth Date respectively.

But under the leadership of Shirley Wilkinson as president, and Elizabeth Markham as vice-president. Phi Sigma Rho success- fully completed its first year on the campus. September, 1945 found Phi Sigma Rho a hale and hearty organization although the youngest on the campus. President Majel Williams and vice- president Alice Hansen could often be seen, heads together over coffee in the cafeteria, and Barbara Eby was kept busy signing checks and receipts while serving in her office as treasurer in the true " Eby " spirit. Capable Jean Hattie gave her talents to the office of secretary, but at the end of the first semester decided to try the banking business, so turned the quill over to Barbara Pickop who cheer- fully carried on. Viola Tracy served, as only " Tracy " could, in the role of master-at-arms. In spite of her busy campus life, popular Leatrice Reis found time to fulfill her duties as club historian. During the months of November and December, a series of rush parties was held. The pledges for this year were vivacious Harriette Holt, pert Alva Janssen, Yvonne Boyd, Ivanelle Mountcastle, June Frizelle, and Janet Alter. Initiation was held shortly after the beginning of the second term. 191 Following the initiation of the medical technol- ogy protjram in February, 19-44, the Med Tech Club was organized in June of the same year to help bring Med Tech students together and to assist them in directing their studies and to help plan activities which would help them in the future. Under Myrtle Sasaki ' s presidency, the first activ- ity was a welcome tea for all med-tcchs held at Hemcnway Hall. Following this was a very inter- esting lecture on tropical diseases with slides to illuftrat- ' , by a not;d parasitologist from China, Dr. Chu. Dr. Oscar N. Allen, who left for a new position at the University of Maryland, was guest of honor at the farewell luncheon held at Kewalo Inn. A benefit movie, " Here Comes the Waves " was sponsored for treasury boosting. The final event isSS •■ BSv «»£: Medical Technology Club of the year was a tea held at the Mabc-1 Smyth Memorial auditorium to welcome Dr. Floyd Hart- mann, who succeeded Dr. Allen. Janet Oishi, was vice-prexy; Doris Yomen, secre- tary; Mun Kyau Hew, treasurer, and Dr. Ocsar N. Allen, adviser. The year 1945-46 was started off with a welcome tea at Mabel Smyth Memorial Auditorium for freshmen members, followed closely by an initia- tion ceremony complct; with toads. Other activities included a picnic held at Camp Erdman, a campus- wide blood bank campaign and a trip to Kaneohe Territorial Hospital. Officers for this year were: Winifred Tseu, president; Amy Tanaka, vice-president; Gwendolyn Chun, secretary; Mitsuyo Kikukawa, treasurer, and Mrs. Lenora Bilger, adviser. 10 Ui Front rv i left to ri iitt : Ki.Mikn Mitsii .

Eta Lambda Kappa To promote general interest along lines of intellectual pursuits and campus activities for pre- medical and pre-dental students at the University of Hawaii is the aim of the Eta Lambda Kappa. An initiation part}- held early in October at the Ala Moana Park set the club going. Neophytes were fed " cat mer.t " garnished with disinfectant. Thirt} ' -five members visited the Kaneohe Terri- torial Hospital in November as guests of Dr. E. A. Stevens, director of the institution. The following month they heard Dr. Thomas Chang speak on medical school life at a meeting in the Mabel Smyth Memorial building. They were also present at an autopsy performed at the Queen ' s Hospital. Eta Lambda Kappa held a farewell party for Dr. Christopher L. Hamre, club adviser, who left on a sabbatical leave. The club also sponsored a St. Patrick ' s day dance in March. Officers for the school year ending in 1945 were: Takeo Ogawa, president; ' Victor Mori, vice- president; Jean Omoto, secretary; and Michael Okihiro, treasurer. Leading the club this year were: ' Victor Mori, president; Clifford Kuba, vice- president; Patsy Takemoto, secretary, and Hung Ping Wong, treasurer. 1946 — Front row, left to right: Jeanette Chang, George Uesato, Eveni Levi, Eiji Yamaguchi, Toshiko Kohatsu.

The Pre-Nursing Club, organized to acquaint pre-nursing students with the various phases of the nursing profession, started off the school year with a picnic at Hanauma Bay. In December the members saw a film entitled " The Training Period at Queen ' s Hospital " at the Mabel Smyth Auditorium. At one of the business meetings, Miss Margaret Catton spoke to the students on the needs and primary plans for a convalescent nursing home in Honolulu. A voluntary contribution of $27 was collected from the members present to further this project. The neophytes were guests of the older members at the Queen ' s Hospital Nurses ' Home in March. A tour of the hospital after a tea climaxed the day ' s activities. In April the girls went on a tour of the Aiea Hospital. Officers of the club were: Hazel Siu, president; Agnes Iwamura, vice-president; Miyuki Ihaga, secretary; Alice Kang, treasurer; Roena Busse, business manager; Jeanette Schumacher, program chairman; and Mae Wakuya, publicity chairman. 195 Sociology Club 1945 Front rou left to riijUt : Grace Fujimoto, Fannie Harakawa, Oionie Inamine, Hetty Kikawa, Lila Lee, Nani Pang, Blanche Ohara, Margaret Harakawa, Florence Kimura.

( 1945 ) A great challenge was left with the students who gathered in Hemenway Hall to hear Dr. J. A. Rademaker lecture on " Socio-psychical Effect of the Evacuation of the Japanese from the West Coast. " He evaluated the situation from the socio- logical viewpoint. This opened the activities for the year 1944-1945. As its chief project for the year, the members took an active part in the publication of " Social Process in Hawaii, " a pamphlet published annually by the club. Articles carrying the theme, " Hawaii Under Wartime Conditions, " were contributed by the members. Heretofore, all clerical work was done by student workers and staff members only. This year, however, members themselves cooperated in doing the typing and filing work. Social activities were not forgotten altogether but were held periodically in order to carry out a well balanced club year. Oflicers for the year were: Misao Kuwaye, presi- dent; Betty Kikawa, vice-president; Shirley Abe, secretary, and Fusako Yahiku, treasurer. (1946) " . . . to promote student interest in the Social Sciences and to foster closer fellowship among Sociology students and faculty . . ., ' with this as its object the " Soci " club carried on its program successfully during the 1945-46 club year.

In November, Dr. Samuel D. Allison of the Board of Health spoke on the " Effect of the Closing of the Houses of Prostitution, " which proved to be highly educational. An evening meeting featured Judge McLaughlin who spoke on the problem of " Juvenile Delinquency. " The informal luncheon which was free to all members had the largest turnout of all the social activities. A picnic was held at Hanauma Bay on the Thanksgiving holiday at which everyone enjoyed cold turkey sandwiches. Officers for the club year 1945-46 were Nani Pang, president; Ruby Miyashiro, vice-president; Cynthia Matsuura, recording secretary; Geraldine Mikaru, corresponding secretary; Katherine Kuwa- hara, treasurer; and Dr. Andrew Lind, faculty adviser. 1! 45 — Frunt rote, left to right: Herbert Chun, Alfred Yee, CliflFord Kam, Donald Char.

The members of Peng Hui fraternity, the name of which when translated means companions, spent the 1945 and 1946 school terms in fostering the spirit of comradeship among its members in school and in the armed forces. Peng Hui, which was organized in 1 929, opened the 1945 year with versatile ping pong champ Donald Char as president, Bernard Yim as secretary- treasurer, and Albert Tom as faculty adviser. Mem- bers were Solomon Chang, Robert Chuck, Alfred Yee, and Norman Chang. Pledged that year, and later inducted into the club were Lowell Yee, Richard Kam, Clifford Kam, Herbert Chun, and lidwin Lee. Together, the club members formed one of the most feared athletic combination in the inter-club series. They were unbeaten in the volleyball tourna- ment and runner-up in the basketball competition. In other ASLIH activities, Peng Hui did com- mendable work. In the ASUH Campus Day cele- bration in March they wholeheartedly volunteered to form the oft belittled but important clean-up committee. At the beginning of the 1 946 year, three pledges were added and inducted. They were Avon Yap, Calvin Liu, and Donald Ching. Officers for the year were Bernard Yim, president; Alfred Yee, secretary- treasurer; and Albert Tom and Elbert Yee, advisers. During the second semester former Peng Hui members, veterans Arthur Wong, Vernon Wong, and Stanley Chow returned to bolster the club membership. Led by Norman Chang and Alfred Yee, the club again made a strong showing in inter-club athletics, ending the season with a tie for first in basketball. 198 Peng Hui Participation in ASUH activities and other social affairs was also enjoyed by the members. House parties, overnight camps, and initiation ceremonies were conducted together with the Alumni Hui. Members of Peng Hui are pledged into the fratjrnity while students at the University, and upon graduation join its alumni division which keeps an active interest in the members of the school chapter. 1946 — Lett coliim, tof to bottom: Albert Tom, Norman Chang.

Yang Chung Hui Yang Chung Hui was organized in 1924 by a group of women who chose a name signifying " looking toward the middle path. " The purpose of the club is to promote friendship among university women and to encourage its members to participate in ASUH activities. Purple, signifying royalty, is their club color, and the purple and gold pansy, their club flower. Officers of the club this year were: Margaret Young, president; Priscilla Hee, vice-president; Evelyn Chock, secretary; Elaine Tom, treasurer; Mrs. Lily Chong, adviser; and Mrs. H. L. Chung, honorary adviser. The activities of the club during the war were limited to rolling bandages at the Red Cross, inter- spersed with a few theater parties. The opening activity for this year was a tea for a group of freshman women at Mrs. Lily Chong ' s home, followed by a party for the pledgees at Caroline Loo ' s home in Ewa. A part) ' honoring members of the Peng Hui club who were leaving for the army was given at the country home of Mr. Aaron Fong in December. A Christmas party was held at Mrs. Chong ' s home. At the come-as- you-are party in March, held at Margaret Young ' s home, attires ranging from housecoats and slippers to party dresses were seen. In addition, theater parties and tennis shindigs were held at intervals. In soft candleUght, neophytes were ceremoni- ously initiated into the club at the YWCA in June. The traditional affair was conducted with due solemnity. __ Eiic, Mabel Awai; Sylvia Sia, Lani Chun, Edna Poi Yin. Hce. Mabel Awa.; back rou-: Pr.sclla Poi ne _ ._ Mary Tyau. University YWCA r j? -- The University YWCA upheld its reputation as one of the most resourceful and active clubs on the campus durint; 1941-45. An important event of the year was the spring conference held in April at the downtown YWCA building. Late in May, Mrs. Kenneth Hanson, YW adviser, resigned her position and was honored at a farewell tea held at the home of Miss Helene Wong, Frosh group adviser. Oflicers for the year were: Masako Mori, president; Amy Higashihara, vice-president; Lorna Bowen, secretary; and Evelyn Tara, treasurer. The YWCA started the school year 1945-46 with the arrival of Mrs. Mildred Simmons, newly appointed executive director from Terre Haute, Indiana. Activities of the organization during the year included: cabinet retreat at Kokokahi in September, Co:tume Ball in December, Christmas card sale, Christmas worship service at the Church of the Crossroads, spring cabinet retreat at the Kahala home of Mr. Mrs. Wade Warren Thayer, canteen-dance in March, and a rummage sale in May. The YWCA took the leadership in soliciting funds for the World Student Service Fund. Its WSSF committee collected a total of S2,145 to the goal of S 1,500. OfFicers for 1945-46 were: Evelyn Tara, president; Beatrice Nosse, vice-president; Lorna Bowen, secretary; and Dorothy Wong, treasurer. 19 1 5 members ■•••J 1 i i iP V im - S rO; ' ■• v; .

Episcopal Club The Episcopal Club starttcl its first post-war year on the University campus under the leadership of Elaine Choy, president; Toshiko Kohatsu, vice- president; Florence Nagao, secretary; and Beatrice C hing, treasurer. Adviser of the club was Dr. Donald P. Rogers. The club was organized with the idea of bring- ing together university students who were interested in the Episcopal church. Members were not neces- sarily members of the Episcopalian church. Al- though the membership of 35 was far below the pre-war level, efforts were made to bring the total membership up to normal. During the first semester of 1945, the club planned the Campus Easter Worship Service. The Rev. Allen Hackett of the Central Union Church spoke on " The Great Divide. " A cross of white star jasmine amid t.ill taj-icring candles served as the frontispiece for the service which was held in Hemenway Hall. Special music for the service was rendered by an instrumental trio and a vocalist. Lt. Comdr. Harold Seielstad, USCG, violinist; Lt. Heyden Mason, AUS, cellist; and Yeoman 3rd Class Pansy Pawson, SPAR, pianist, played the " Andante Religiouso " by Thome. Raymond Hettler, seaman 1st class, sang " The Holy City " by S. Adams. Anita Fukuda was in charge of the service. Members of the club aided the YWCA worship committee in planning the corporate communion service during the first semester of 1945. During the Easter of 1 9l6 they attended the Easter service at Kapiolani Park and later the church services at the St. Andrew ' s Cathedral. On Campus day in April, the Episcopal club held a successful cookie and pretzel sale. The profits made at the sale was donated toward the rebuilding of churches in the war-torn countries. 206 Tu Chiang Sheh, a social fraternity for men was organized by Professors Shao-Chung Lee and Tin Yuke Char, Representative Hiram Fong, and others, to foster goodwill and understanding among campus groups. The name, translated, means " striv- ing for strength — mental, moral and spiritual. " Although its membership was depleted by the war, the club managed to continue as an active organization by joint patricipation with its alumni in community affairs such as the Double-Ten China Relief Ball and the Hawaii Chinese Civic Softball League in which it ended as runner-up. On the campus the fraternity entered the interclub tourna- ment for the first time in 1945 and placed second in total club points for that year. In 1946, TCS swept through the interclub volleyball league undefeated. Officers for 1946 were: Raymond Ho, president; Roger Lee, vice-president; Francis Mau, secretary; Dr. Thomas Chang, treasurer; and Representative Hiram Fong, adviser. 207 i GI ' s God-Father Earl M.

Organized for the first time on this campus with a nucleus of fourteen members during the first se- mester, the Gamma Iota Alpha Chapter of Hawaii had well over 150 members by the end of the school year. Being the only national collegiate G.I. organiza- tion of its kind, it seeks to promote the general welfare of all veterans of all the wars of the United States of America. George Hagiwara was elected president. With over 250 veterans back on the campus during the second semester, the GIA now headed by Melvin Letman went to work to speed up sub- sistence payments to the veterans who were not getting their allowances because of Washington red tape. Col. George W. Bicknell, director of the Honolulu ofiice of the Veterans Administration and his staff were called upon to explain the situation at a panel discussion in Hemenway Hall. A red letter day for the club was the visit of Mr. Earl Finch, " one-man USO " from Mississippi. A club committee headed by Edward Okazaki presented Mr. Finch with a koa bowl. During the year the club investigated veteran housing problems on the campus and tried to aid veterans who were in need of financial assistance. Other activities of the club included a picnic with the YWCA girls at a beach home in Waialua, and socials to acquaint the returning veterans with the rest of the student body. Officers were: George Hagiwara, president for first semester; Melvin Letman, president for sec- ond semester; James Tani, vice-president; Shigeru Nakata, secretary; James Moran, treasurer; Toru Arisumi, sergeant - at- arms; Daniel Yamashita, chaplain; and Dr. Bruce White, adviser. Ka Palapala prpsents the 1946 Beauty Queens Ruth Nitta ShiccniKsu Nakashima Alana Wong Supported by enthusiastic veterans who returned to the campus during the second semester, the annual Ka Palapala beauty contest, held for the first time since the outbreak of war, turned out to be one of the biggest events of the year. In the course of the four weeks of the contest, interest overflowed into the community where the campus beauties became a popular topic of conversation. Fifty-five candidates were presented dramatically to the student body and faculty first at a personality- quiz program in Hemenway. A rousing bathing beauty rally followed at the swimming pool. Finally, a third rally featured the contestants as hostesses at an informal dance. Cameramen — pro- fessional and amateur — disregarding film shortages, squandered all their precious stocks at these rallies. The final judging was held on Monday night, March 25, at Farrington Hail. Excited connoisseurs of beauty overflowed the hall long before curtain time. Noisy and enthusiastic, the audience volun- tarily hushed itself and burst out with applau.se as Dan Alexander, president of the Honolulu Cham- ber of Commerce, officially opened the program. Exotic Oriental dances, hulas, and singing occu- pied the breaks in the appearance of the various beauties in racial groups. All eyes followed the finalists as they glided up the specially built plat- form which extended out from the stage, then focused expectantly on the board of judges headed by Artist Ben Norris. As a fitting climax, Acting Governor Corbett and President Sinclair made the presentation of victory statuette trophies and gifts donated by interested downtown firms to the five winners. 211 .

Sincerely, Amy HlCiASHIHARA, Beauty Contest Chairman Raymond Higuchi, Editor Courtesy of David Muramoto Yaeko Shigezawa Evelyn Murashige Work on the 1945-46 Ka Palapala started in September 1944, in the usual spirit of optimism. In spit; of the adverse conditions imposed by war, C;hariott:r Chun, 1945 editor, slathered about her a small, enthusiastic group of students and initiated work on the yearbook. From the outset, however, obstacles beset the staff and in May, 1945, the Board of Publications announced its decision to cancel the 1945 edition of the Ka Palapala and to print a Senior pamphlet as a substitute. Again the staff failed to complete its work and in late August, the Board, meeting in a special session hesitantly cancelled the Senior pamphlet and placed upon the new Ka Palapala staff for 1946 the responsibility of incorporating the 1945 material into the yearbook to be published the following year. The break in staff continuity during 1945 taxed the 1946 staff as there were hardly any experienced Ka Palapala members to form a nucleus of the new organization. The editor optimistically canvassed the campus for potential prospects and ended with a handful of students who were willing to share the work and gain experience in yearbook publication. After many unsuccessful attempts to obtain a 218 pjdf Ann Tsutsumi Satoki Yamamoto Albert Chikasuye Albert Chong Caroline Dizon printer or the yearbook, a St.tOO contract was finally signed with a local hrm. However, Ka Palapala ' s troubles did not end with the location of a printir. Early in the year. Editor Higuchi was informed that the S. K. Smith Company of Chicago, manufacturers of Molloy covers, would not be able to put out the covers until the summer of 1946. Further delays were caused by the wave of strikes. Almost before the work on the book was started, the army literally wiped out the photographic staff by drafting Ben Ranada, Albert Chikasuye, Daniel 8:. 0 — and yet the tallying continues into the night . . . ■•i, - ■« Chieko Nishimura and Sachiko Oya- ma types appreciation letters to down- town business firms for their contribu- tions toward the beauty contest. 220 K mivo Nagata Audrey Macdi Kaoru Watanabc Johnny Lai Rose Fung Akira Tanaka Edward Okazaki Beatrice Chong Yuji Yamashita Pang and Albert Chong. Lone survivor of the department was Joe Dizon, who carried on as Ka Palapala ' s one-man photo staff. Later, with no possible replacements, the editor, after a brief study of photography, took over the darkroom himself. During second semester, the influx of returning veterans gave impetus to the successful Ka Palapala Beauty Contest headed by Associate Editor Amy Higashihara and assisted by veteran Keichiro Yamato. Yamato also proved himself irreplaceable as copy editor, succeeding Yuji Yamashita, who was forced to quit because of illness. Three other welcomed veteran additions to the staff were Akira Tanaka and Kaoru Watanabe as photographers, and Edward Okazaki as community relations editor. First group to complete work was the graduate seaion. Helping Editor Yaeko Shigezawa were Beatrice Chong, Audrey Maeda, and Kimiyo Nagata. Evelyn Murashige was administration editor with Elizabeth Fujioka and Tomoka Ohata assisting her. Mary Matsumoto handled the organization sec- tion. The lack of any record on clubs entailed the contacting of all clubs and their presumed leaders at the beginning of the year in order to determine whether or not they were to be active during the year. Ann Tsutsumi and Margaret Harakawa worked with Mary in compiling this data. Sports Editor Pete Matsuoka was helped by Satoki Yamamoto, Jean Iwasaki, and Johnny Lai. Feature writers who proved invaluable were Rose Fung, Ann Tsutsumi, Calvin Ontai, Ellen Miller, Virginia Okamoto, Caroline Dizon, and Paul Nakamura. Staff t}-pists were Chieko Nishimura and Sachiko Oyama, both of whom spent untold hours at the tedious job. Members of Ka Palapala. Ka Leo, and the Board of Publications enjoyed barbecued chicken at the publications banquet at the La Hula Rhumba. In early July, the final copy was sent to the printers, placing in their hands the details of the publication. 221 Alma Mater 111 greet?
