Gregory and thcy happened to n,v.
tion that one summer wJ.en they
wero camping in one of the valla s
on the pall side, they noticed high
up on a cliff the prow ot an out
rigger canoe protruding from a cave.
It was impossible for them to reach
the cave without tUe aid ot lad
ders so that they could not n.x
their Investigation any further.
Their story Interested Prof. Greg
ory and when he came to Bishop
Museum as director he planned to
make the trip to see if any infor
mation In regard to the early Hi'
wailans could bo found there.
Tho party will leave Wa'lmea to

Legion's Armory Drive
Will Begin Tomorrow
The campalga of the Kauai post
of American region to change the Ll
hue armory so that the building may
be of real use as a community cen
ter starts today.
Tho above cut shows the change
proposed by the local post. It can
bo seen from the drawing ttoat in
raising the roof there will bo a
distinct change in the architecture
of the building.
Another changa which doce not
show in the drawing is tho meet
ing room that will, be built Immed
iately over the store rooms and
kitchen In the mauka end ot the
building. This room will be 20 by C5
and 'Will be large enough for a meet
ing placo for any of the various or
anlzatlonh on Kauai, such as the
chamber of commerce, the Fish and
Game Club, the Kauai Automobile
Club and tho American Legion.
Because the American Legion is
conducting and bearing the expense
of the campain to carry out the pro
posed change does not mean that
the post will have an added ad
vantage In the use ot the building.
The Legion will be on an equal
footing with every other organization
in regard to using the armory.
The plan, of the campaign is to
reach every person in the Llhue
district and the members ot the
American Legion over the entire
island, In the solicitation ot funds,
because of tho varied use that the
building can bo put It Is hoped that
ervery member of the community,
laborer as well as skilled help, will
contribute to the fund.
Tho success of the project de
pends upon tho Individual and It 'Is
up to every public spirited citizen
to kokua tho Legion in every way
possible. Tho attitude of the Le
gion is absolutely unselfish and Is
commendable. What thoy are doing
is to help tho community, provido
itself with a worth while commun
The contract calls fof $4000 and
the contract will not bo let until
the entire sum has been deposited
in the Bank of Hawaii. It is not
tho intention of the Legion to have
tho job half started and then fall
thru. Tho Legion has yet to make
a failure of anything they have ever
started on Kauai and although tho
proposition that they have before
them Is a big onci, there Is no doubt
that they will carry the matter thru
to a successful conclusion.

of Kaupal's representatives, and who
is expected to announce himself
soon as a candidate for the senate
at the coming election, to the sur
prise' of everybody, ran a bad eighth
for delegate among a field of ten.
Hoopli is at present one of Kauai's
four representatives on tho Republi
can central committee and his de
feat will uudoubtedly mean his elim
ination as a committeeman at tho
next Republican convention.

close vote of C3 to 50. For secretary
G. M. Shak was returned a winner

The Mikado Scores
An Unqualified Hit
At Parish House
Exceeding the expectations of even
tho most hopeful, "The Mikado"
scored ard absolute and distinct hit
at its presentation at the Llhuo
Memorial Parish houso lact Satur
Every .member ot tho cast from
principals to chorus seemed on their
mottle and tho result was one ot
the most pleasing entertainments
that has ever been presented to tho
To pick out any particular mem
ber of the caat und say that hj or
she was tho star of tho wenlng
would not only be impossible out
ulso unfair as It Is doubtful if one
member of tho opera outshadiu-d
any ot tho ott.rr members ot the
cast to this extent.
As it 13 to bit expected, tho mem
bers who carried tho comedy parts
were no doubt the best roc jived
owning to the fact that an audience .
responds more quickly to anything
that Is amusing than to Ujo more
serious numbers and it must be
said that Mrs. Alma Rogers, Jr.dgo
Achl, H. D. Sloggett and W .(',
Scrlbner, who were the principal
comedians, carried oft their parts in
Xvts. K. C. Ahana as Yum-Yum
and R. W. Baylcss ns Nankl-Poo,
tho principal characters, gave real
creditable performances, both be
ing In flue voice. Mrs. Ahana's
numbers were CKceptionally pleas
ing, which is not at all surprising,
whllo tho parson outdid himself.
Mrs. R. F. Middleton, Mrs. Fred
Trowbridge as the other two lit
tle maids from school, and Sam Car
ter us Pish-Tush, wero the other
members of the principals and their
work was up to the high standard
set by tho rest of the cast.
Not enough 'stress can be laid
on tho. work of the chorus, both
the men and tho women doing ex
ceptionally fine work, thet opening
chorus ot the men and the school
girls chorus of tho women, all In
their bright colored kimonos, being
two of tho most pleasing numbers
on the entire performance.
Too much creidlt cannot bo given
to Mfds Estello Roe, who took up
tho reins of the directorship when
illness forced Mr. Uolllnger to drop
them. Miss Roe stepped in the mid
dle of tho rcharsals und tho success
of tho performance is no doubt duo
to her efforts' and to tho fine pre
liminary work of Mr. Dolllnger. To
Mrs. H. I). Sloggett the credit ot
the performance from they histrionic
point of view Is duo, she nuvlng
charge of tho stage direction which
she handled In her usual capablo
mai'ner. Tho costuming was under
the direction of Mis? Edith Rico
and Che correctness of tho detail in
the costumes of the principal charac
ters was due to her efforts. Ji.'ra.
Ralph Hayless as plaust deserves
more than a word for he'r work as
musician ot the opera. Her work
required meeting with every mem
ber ot the principals for reharsals
as well as tlie chorus, which means
that she was kt'pt continually busy.
Her efforts reflected creditably up
on hor public spirit as well as her
ability as a musician.
Tho opera was presented by tho
social servico department of tho
Llhuo Union chcrch and Is tho first
of n number of musicals aud enter
tainments that will bo given at
tho Parijh House by this department
of the church.
Tho only disappointment ot tho ev
ening was the tact that the solo by
Dr. T. L. Morgan was greeted by
stony silence, tho audience probably
being not warmed up so early In
tho performance. All other members
more than received their sharo of
