Cafeteria this noon, and they are expecting to have an other one this evening. . For the first time in the history of Hawaii, according- to the statement of the chef, whale meat was served In a public restaurant. ' When the usual lunch0 crowd as sembled at the association this noon they discovered a large plate of whale meat on the counter, and above It the sign: "Manuwahl." After dis covering that the Hawaiian word meant free for all instead of a new kind of fish, the majority of the cus tomers took a "helping." : Some took a small bite and smiled, while others made faces. A moving picture director could have discovered a lot of "registering" on the faces of the diners this noon. Brave men who can eat bear meat, liver and tripe, smiled and asked for more. One diner is satisfied that if he had his choice between a nice juicy beef steak and a whale steak, the whale supply would not be increased. It may be filling, but then again one might learn to eat excelsior or alfalfa. Floyd Emmans of - the Y. M. C. A. was the first to try the stunt. He purchased some of the sea-going bo vine from the Metropolitan' Meat Market., He didn't charge for it That may be the reason that a lot of the diners smiled.
