Scrap Book Made in Puunene School Takes Journey, to Far Balkans It is a long way from Maui to Al bania, from the foot of Haleakala to the Balkan mountains and for at scrap book to last for and be in use after two or three years seems a long time, but a scrap book made in Puunene school Is now being enjoyed by school children in Tirana. When the call went out for the making of picture scrap bkoks that might serve to entertain and while away painful and tiresome hours of wounded or sick soldiers in (he hospi tals during the world war, children of ruunene school were among those to respond and recently there came a letter from Albania telling of the whereabouts of one of them. Though not used for the purpose it was creat ed, for weary ones in hospitals, it is nevertheless serving a useful cause as the following letter shows: ,' "Tirana, Albania, Balkan, "July 19, 1920 "Puunene School, "Maui, Territory of Hawaii. "A Scrap Book which your school made, possibly some two or three years ago has eventually found its way to this remote part of the world. '. "It is being greatly appreciated by the little Albanian children who are in attendance of the American Red Cross schools. "The children of this small country have very little and anything from the outside world interests them very much. Salutations from, "A. G. BOSTON, Capt., "Director Supplies, "Commission to Albania."
