Koloa played playground ball with
Lihue Monday and was Bhut out by a
one-sided score. The Koloa boys
and girls have no regrets, however,
and will show Lihue something next
time. Both of the Koloa teams were
new and suffered considerably from
stage fright. Play was clean and
Corn is up a foot high at Koloa and
is coming along finely. It should
have been two feet high by this time,
but the principal was awakened one
night by mules which broke into the
school yard and ran riot amidst the
corn until driven out. The number
of stray cattle and horses on the
Koloa roads is a disgrace.
The Koloa teachers have enjoyed a
number of social affairs. A moon
light picnic at Lawal beach was cer
tainly enjoyed by all. Through the
courtesy of Dr. and Mrs. Waterhouse
all took a big truck to the beach,
where games were played In the
moonlight and a picnic lunch was
consumed with gusto. This Is the
second time Koloa teachers have been
indebted to Dr. and Mrs. Waterhouse
for this particular picnic, besides
which they have to thank those hos
pitable people for many other court
esies. Shortly over a week ago the ladies
of Koloa gave a lunch and entertain
ment to all the new teachers at the
Wilcox beach house at Koloa. Fol
lowing this, on Hallowe'n, the ladies
Invited the teachers to a supper and
dance at the plantation boarding
These two events, and numberless
other courtesies have well sustained
Koloa's hospitable and friendly reputation.
