A party of fifteen including
representatives from the Y. 11. C,
A., clubs at Lihtie, Puhl, Koloa.
Li.wni, Homestead, Eleele, Maka
vvcli and Kekaha with th'o two
secretaries motored to Olckele
Saturday afternoon for a combin
ed outing and inspirational con
ference. The merry party arrived
at the di tollman's house shortly
after dark. As but two of the
party had been there before, the
mystery of the surroundings, tow
ering shapes against the skyline,
the distant roar of mountain
streams, rugged forest trees, cool,
snappy air, had a most delightful
ell'ect at that time of day. Quickly
the expedition was organized with
a division of labor'; the cam) fire
(hired up cheerily in the gloom,
a stove was constructed and that
most essential member of any
camping party, the cook, was dis
covered in Kondo from Koloa, a
culinary genius of experience.
With several assistants he was
s)on able to announce supper,
the menu consisting of "hot dogs,"
bread and butter, doughnuts, ap
ples, coll'ee with regular milk and
Meanwhile the electricians had
been busy stringing up (10-watt
mazda lights in the trees and
when the power from Mr. Wal
worth's generator was turned on,
behold the trail format ion-! Sup
per over, a party "did the dishes,"
mother hapai-ed wood (at the ex
pense of the poor ditch man), a
third division erected a vcryerv-
icable lean-to, while a fourth
spread the cushions and blankets.
Then followed a concert to the
sweet strumming of tile guitars
from Lawai with songs in Hawaii
an, Porto Bican, Japanese and
American. These were inter-'
spersed with the indispensable
camplire tales, and interesting
narrations by Kondo and Watada
respectively, of life in college and
The later hours of the evening
took a more serious turn when
Mr. Walworth talked on Y. M.
('. A. ideals and club plans. Mr.
Warner followed with definite
suggestions of local needs and ex
plained what each leader could do
to boost his club, emphasis being
put just now on the membership
and financial campaign. This
session was closed with Bible
reading and prayer.
The lights were then turned oil
and all but the first guard prepar
ed to "turn in." But sleep was im
possible as the novelist says, at
least until the wee still hours of
approaching day. There was
snoring in several languages, in
harmonious of course, until it was
decided to assign parts to parti
cular specialists, some taking
high tenor, another low bass,
while the uonmusical refrained
bv agreement and so discord gave
way to harmony.
Next morning, breakfast con
sisting of boiled rice, milk, sugar,
sausage, bread, butter and cocoa,
was followed by a general camp
cleaning. After this formal de
votion service was held, ending
with a talk by Mr. Warner 011 the
"Third Side of the Triangle," be
ing our relation to God and the
Christian life. The rest of the
forenoon was given over to a hike
I to the intake over the beautiful
canyon trail. Beturning for
lunch the last meal proved the
biggest and was well timed after
a twelve-mile hike such things
as eggs (any way you like), pork
and beans, bread, butter, coffee
cakes, sliced pineapple and grapes
produced the desired results.
The party returned in the' earl
afternoon having voted that the
had enjoyed a good and profitable
time. The roll call included,
