THE GARDEN ISLAND, TUESDAY, MAY 23, 1922
The Lihue Memorial Parish House GOOD SUGAR CANE EXHIBIT PROMISED I run uuurM I T (Continued from page one) e,l stage. Here will be a place tor Bong and music for oratorio, and opera and orchestra. Come tonight and you will see the fairyland of Shakespeare as the children and young people enact the "Midsummer Night's Dream" before your eyes. It is an auspicious beginning of a large use of the drama both as a recreation and as an art interpreting some of the deeper meanings of life. i'UJL 1 would that I wore able ade qualely to express what is In my heart and in your hearts of appreci ation of these dear friends, who in their generosity and public spirit have erected this building. When they sought to build a memorial to those they loved, they chose this house, beautiful as the skill .and art, the sense of line and color, of the architect could make it and then set It here to go on serving the community thru all the coining years. Over Its doors there Is really written, thougil In Invisible letters, the words of the text of this ser mon: "I am In the midst of you as he that serveth." This house stands as a .veritable incarnation in endur ing stone and lovely architecture of the spirit of service which was i.i Christ and which must be in His church also. A friend of mine once placed over the exit of the new church where ho was minister these words about Jesus: "He went about doing good." A no in explanation he said: "That is the test of the whole matter tho music, tha prayers, the sermon do people go out into life from this church inspired to go about ioU good?" ' 1 am sure this beautiful . building will have Just that con stant and quiet influence. People who gather here from time to time will feel not only the beauty of ar chltecture but also the spirit of ser vice that ' prompted its erection as a tribute of loving memory ana win be inpired to go out, In, turn, as those who serve, to go about doing good. So this parish house, stand ing here in its beatuiful grove of trubd, shall spread its influence throughout this lovely island. After the benediction, pronounced by Rev. R. G. Hall, the friends, old and new, went out past the bronze memorial tablet with hearts more open to the sense of the glory and divinity of love that outlasts these changing years. In the evening, again Che house was crowded, not to the doors, but beyond them, to the limits of the broad lanai, by neighbors and friends eager to see the children, of the community take possession of the pretty stage and cast spells of fairy' land upon it. No magician less pow erful, and no interpretor of human life less sympathetic than Shape speare would do for such an occasion. He set a noble pattern. A lordly court grouped about Duke Theseus (Adrian 1 Englehard, and queenly Hlppolyta (Edith Rice), who were splendid in their wedding robes, and courtly in their speech. A moonlit forest where proud Oberon (Doro thea Sloggett) and fair Titania(Ly- dia Bodrero) held court delightfully and called the flowers and moths and fireflies to pleasant service, and where Puck (Arthur Sloggett) most whimsical and audacious of sprites, worked his will with clum sy mortals; and a comic scene where rustic clowns played to utter con vlncement the "fools we mortals be." Bottom (John Midklff) was quite in lmitable and Quince (Percy Lyd gate) and his players, Snug (Rictu- urd Rice, Flute, (Kenneth Kerwlnf Snout (William Moragne) and Star veling (Kenneth Hopper), whether n the role of hard-handed men of Ath ens or of performers in "Pyramus and Thisbe," each played tis part with individuality and humor. Bot tom was a splendid "ornery" foil for the leading fairies, the sweet Dew Drop (Edith Sloggett) who opened the moonlight scene with grace and sang her airy song and later led the swaying chorus in the queen's lulaby; Peablossom (Ruth Hobby), Cobweb (Dora Rice) ,Moth (Alice Scott), Mustardseed (Qlen Hopper), and the fairy sentinel (Eunice Scott) who added variety and charm to the larger group. It was a true community play as is proved when one tries from the long list to assign praise, for all 'helped to make the affair a success, from Miss Ethel Damon, who plan ned and worked out the details' of the evening's program with untir ing enthusiasm, to the little group of fairy flowers who swayed in time to the fairy music. Miss Edith Rice proved her genius as a maker of costumes both in her striking and lovely combinations of color and the originality and skill of her de signing. Mrs. carters rairy groups were gay and spontaneous; Miss Karrer and Miss Hardell were in dispensable in prompting and watch ing cues; the Misses Underbills clowns interpreted their parts with humorous success1; and Mrs. Bayless1 choruses carried the spirit of the songs. Even the outsiders caught the ripirit of the occasion. The lovely music by the Pasmore Trio unified and helped create the glamor of atmosphere; Mrs. Isaac Cox helped Miss Damon happily in the final putting together of the varied seen es; and Miss Margaret Clarke's Set tings for the fairy songs had the lilt ' and swing of elf-land, and the ap preciation of the beauty of the occa sion was felt in the little chant like singing of the second stanza of "The Blessings of the House" but slightly altered from Shakespeare's closing song: "This pleasant chamber bless Thru the years, with friendly peace; And the givers of it blest Ever shall in safety rest." The full program is as follows Program, Dedication Services of the Memorial Parish House Doxology Hymn "Venite, Exultemus Domino" The sugar cane exhibjt at the county fair this next Saturday will undoubtedly be one of the largest and best displays to be seen.

The commission will consider an other petition received recently by the department from parents in vari ious sections of the city requesting the establishment of such an lnstitu tio: At Its last meeting the commis sion went on record as favoring re storing pf Central grammar, school to school with strict English require ments, but no action was taken to ward carrying out this plan, the com mission desiring first to obtain the views of local civic organizatiyons. In its discussion of the project the commission went on record as being emphatically opposed to anything that saored of discrimination. The prob lem now before tho commission is that of a suitable building for the pro posed new school. Should It be decid ed definitelyy to restore Central grammar school to its original status a certain number of children now en rolled there would have to be placed in some other school, and with ex isting congestion, this would be im possible at this' time. Lack of funds and tho necessity for retrenchment by the county as well the territory, mak es a new building out of the question at present.
