cited the great men who have risen
to prominence from obscurity and
poverty because America grants free

democracy is not the same in all
countries. He dwelt on the necessity
of organization and right leadership

which was converted by them into a
fairy bower for this banquet and the
pretty setting was enhanced by the
girls reserves who, with Miss Soule,
served the guests. While the number
of guests at the Walmea banquet was
considerable less, 72 in all, than at
Lihue, the event itself was in no sense
less successful and praiseworthy. The
presence of a number of prominent
Waimea ladies added beauty and
grace to the occasion.
The program was concluded with
the singing of Aloha Oe, led by Mr.
States and of the Governor of Hawaii
a goodly congregation of Llhue people

A union service was held in this
church last Sunday evening with Dr.
K. C. Leebrick as speaker. Dr. Lce
brick's topic was "The Influence of
the Pilgrims on the life of our Nat
ion." After paying tribute to the
credit due to other groups of settlers
than the Pilgrims, Dr. Leebrick pro
ceeded to explain the origin of the
Pilgrims and their especial mission to
America. He first contrasted the bo
called Separatists, Pilgrims and the
Puritans as distinct groups. The
Separatists were not called pilgrims
until they were enroute to America.
Miles Standish and certain others on
the Mayflower were not Pilgrims.
The Pilgrims moreover were loyal to
the British government they were
seeking only religious freedom. But
in time it became necessary to develop
a democracy locally. They remained
Englishmen a thing they could not
do in the Netherlands. The Huge

in a foreign country but failed in this.
The Pilgrims believed in the con
