Going to represent Kamehameha School at the Territory of Hawaii Conference of the National Student Association [? ahahuina Teritori o Hawaii o ka Haumana o ka ahahui Aupuni], are four girls from the girls’ school. This conference was held at Farrington High School from the 22nd to the 24th of November.

Charlotte Anna Morris, Ruth Needham, children class; Ellen Miller, Emelia Kaopua, youths; were the girls who represented the school. The delegates came from many different schools, from Kauai, Hawaii, Maui, Molokai, and Oahu.

The main reason for this meeting was to think over the problems that come before the school.

This coming year, the meeting will be held on Hawaii.

The girls who went to the meeting last year were Patricia Federcell, Alama Ayers, Louise Federcell and Marjorie Morris.

Ainsley Mahikoa, who graduated with the class of 1930 from Kamehameha School for Boys, is at University of Southern California.

He is there studying the social sciences [? ouli] and that includes the study of different peoples and their knowledge. He is also working on “The teachings of Jesus pertaining to life” of which he related that he gained a lot. He also said that there is a lot in his reading pertaining to his line of work. His studies are related to his work at the Y. M. C. A.

Mr. Mahikoa is living with eight other boys who went there together from Hawaii. They sit together at one table to discuss their studies as if they were living at home.

According to his explanation, that Mr. Mahikoa has gained a lot of knowledge of other peoples at that University. In his letter, he said that one night, there was a Japanese, Chinese, American, Italian, Czechoslovakian, sitting around his table with him, a Hawaiian.

There were three boys from USC who were in an automobile accident who live with him in the same dorm along with Ainsley, and one of them lost his life.

Mr. Mahikoa is a counsellor for the boys at the Central Y.M.C.A. and it is said that the boys who were in that accident were ones who liked to have fun, and because Mahikoa was used to the ways of boys, he was the only one that could talk to them without being talked back to.

[I was assuming that all of the news written in by Kamehameha students of that time would be done in English, but happily it was not so!]
