A concert of Hawaiian music was
given at the Waimea Hall last Satur
day evening by members of the Ha
waiian Section of the Western Kauai
Unit of the Ited Cross under the man
agement of Mrs. S. Keliinol, its Presi
dent. Those who failed to attend
missed a rare treat; while to the
kamaainas who were present, a
glimpse of old Hawaii was forcibly
brought back to their memory.
The first number was a chorus by
the Red CroBS members. For linpres
siveness, it was hard to conceive its
equal. When the curtain rose, there
was exposed to view a most realistic
scene; on the stngo were grouped
fifty members of the Society, all fac
ing to one side, each dressed in white
and on her left arm was tied a band
bearing the Red Cross The spontan
eous applause this scene received was
well merited. One verse of the "Star
Spangled Banner," well rendered, ad
(led a great deal to the effectiveness
of the scene. When the ladies swung
into the rythm and melody of "Aina
Maikal o Kauai"" and "Nani Koolau,"
they carried their audience with them,
and set a standard for other numbers
on the program.
In the scene "The Court of Kaahii
nianu," there was staged a bit of that
old Hawaii which has become a mere
memory to the present generation;
rich in coloring an weird with chant
of old moles. Mrs. Kanani Kapahu
made an imposing Kaahumanu. Mrs.
Makaonaona chanted the olis; Mrs.
Wright and Mrs. Hemolele attended
the Queen; Mrs. Kipe and Mrs. Mala
ma waived the kahilis over her. Mr.
William Wright was her ai-puupuu.
and Messrs Leoikl and Aukal were her
pukauas (warriors). Miss Violet
Lincoln presented the homage of the
makaainanas by tying a yellow feather
lei around Queen Kaahumanu's iteck.
The rich capes of red and yellow
feathers and the mahioles of the same
colors showed off to advantage In the
semi-darkness of the hall. - In the
hush which followed the tremendous
ovation this scene received, the mem
bers of the society, in the wings, sang
'He Inoa no Kaahumanu" (Beamer).
When the curtain descended, the audi
ence insisted upon another "look
The ahuulas and mahioles (feather
capes and head gears) used in this
scene were kindly loaned by the
Society "Ka Hale o na Lii" (House of
Chiefs) of Honolulu, and the Waimea
Red Cross section wish to ta':e this
means of thanking them for the loan
of this regalia.
The playlet "In the Woods of Ha
waii" by Mr. Chas. E. King, was full
of action from the rise of the curtain
to tho crowning of the Princesses of
the various Islands. The party of
"hikers" in the woods were realistic
some were braiding fern Icis, some
were simply idling, while some were
too hungry to wait for lunch and so
turned to rob "Mother" Wright of the
ripe wild bananas she had found and
brought in. The two hulas, "Kale
Loke" and "Inisi Malie" received pro
longed applause. An incident which
showed how whole heartedly the play
ers had entered into their work occur
ed so naturally that very few took
notice of it, if at all. Mrs. Keliinol
had tabooed the Hawaiian hula on the
stage. But while she was playing the
Introduction to the second hula "Inis
Malie," two of the girls whose par
was to stand about or keep moving on
the stage, were so affected by the
swing of the hula air that they had to
sit down in order to prevent their
feet from running away with them. As
one of them put it when remonstrated
with luter:"I couldn't help it; If
didn't sit sit down, I would have danc
ed the hula; that music was too good.'
Ka Moku o Hawaii was sung
while a real swing carried one of the
maids of the party. The finale wus
the crowning of the princesses of the
different islands with leis made of the
dowers representative of each island
They entered, heralded by two dune
ins maids, Misses Kapu I'alea and
Rebecca l'aaluina. While the chorus
was singing "N'u I.ei o Hawaii," Mrs
Hart, dressed in lehua red, represent
ing Hawaii, was ushered in and was
crowned with a lei of ruses.
Mrs. William Keliinol in rose color,
representing Maui, came next and was
corwned with a lei of roses.
Mrs. Hunt, in purple, representing
Molokal, was crowned with a wreath
of kukui leaves and llowers.
Miss Violet Lincoln, in ilinia yellow,
representing Oabu, received a lei of

her, she was again ' cheered. But
when Kauai's own Princess came in,
Knuaiuns showed their loyalty by ap
plauding louder and longer; the ap
pearance of the mokihana lol was the
signal for renewed applause. Incident-
ly, she was Kauai's Queen at one of
the recent Carnivals In Honolulu.
Alull Lyons, Mrs. Keliinoi's son and
Andrew" Iona, a Waimea boy, gave
several selections on the steel guitar
and ukulele. The patriotic selections
Goodbye Broadway, Hello France"
and "Over There" as well as "HonI
Kaua Wiklwlkl," 'Honolulu Maids' and
"The Kakaako March" received strong
endorsement. The boys responded to
man requests for encores.
The sweet rendition of the duet
Imi au la oe e ke Aloha", by Miss
Naea and Mr. W. Keliinol, their voices
blending harmoniously and tho touch
of of tho "old story ever new" display
ed by the singers, caught the popular
fancy of the audience; they certainly
made a hit, nnd were obliged to re
spond with an encore.
The. quartette "Nohea" and Hono
lulu Maids" by tho Red Cross mem
bers, "Lei Anuhoa" by the Kekaha
Glee Club and an ukulele -sextette, a
novelty Introduced by Mrs. Fieldgrove,
were well rendered. A number of old
time singers attempted to sing some
of tho old favorites of long ago, and
surprised themselves. They certainly
surprised the audience, for they were
obliged to respond with an encore.
Mr. C. B. Hofgaard was Hoover's
right hand man for the occasion, and
in his four-minute talk drove home
fact after fact why we should save and
help all along the lino.
Comments on the concert, heard
after the performance, were most
flattering, nnd yet every one of them
was merrited. Mrs. Keliinol and her
willing girls who took active part
deserve a great deal of credit; but her
lieutenants of the "second line" as
she calls them the women who fur
nished the ice cream, the leis and
lemonade for sale at the dance; who
organized and attended to the sale of
tickets; who decorated the hall, and
who attended to the hundred and one
incidentals which go to make a large
undertaking successfulmust not be
forgotten. They also served. This
"second line" was In command of
Mesdames Crowell, Chang Yau, Cook,
Cox, Fieldgrove, Hoopii, Kipe, Leoikl
Mailo Wright and others, and their
work was effective.
