Christmas Tree at
Paia Community House
Delightful Lvcnt For Children of
Makawao-Paia District Complaint
About Methods - of Marketing
MAKAWAO, Dec. 23. Friday after
noon, the 18th, a most successful
"Christmas tree" entertainment was
given in the Community House, Taia,
for the Sunday school members of the
Makawao Union Church.
The program consisted of suitable
choruses and two elaborate plays, one
entitled "The Night After Christmas
by Maunaolu Seminary girls and the
other, "The Night Before Christmsa"
by pupils of the Hamakuapoko High
School.. Both farces introduced many
pretty costumes and were admirably
After the entertainment a large tree
in the rear of the stage, pret illy dec
orated and illuminated with ralared
lights became the center of observa
tion and the Santa Cluus of the last
play presented gifts to the one hun
dred and sixty members of the Sun
day school. Both the tree and the
hall were lighted by electricity,-the
windows being darkened for the occa
sion.. Large wreaths of Hawaiian hol
ly and leis of fern comprised the in
Refreshments were served and later
candy and oranges were distributed.
In addition to the one hundred sixty
young people, fifty or sixty elders
were in attendance.
Mrs. Baldwin and Miss Ileusner had
charge of the program anrt commit
tees from the Ladies' Aid Society
looked after the selection of gifts, re
freshments and tree-decoration.
Altogether the event was most
pleasing to young anrt old 'and the
conveniences of the new Community
House showed to good advantage.
According to reports coming in
from the Kula section, the new farm
ers' association is not always satis
factory in its methods. The Honolulu
market, seems to be a limited one and
easily overstocked. Word comes to
Maui that a certain product is in de
mand, but when the farmers forward
their onions, sweet potatoes or what
ever asked for, Information Rt times
comes back that no sale has been pos
sible and that their staples have heen
thrown into the sea. Such episodes
as the above mentioned have a dis
couraging effect upon an illiterate
farming population. A suggested solu
tion of the matter is that the services
of a commission merchant either at
Kahului or Honolulu be obtained to
act solely for the Maui small farmres.
