LEIS AT STANFORD
AN INTERESTING SOCIETY FORMED AT THE UNIVERSITY AT PALO ALTO—LEIS OF ROSES AND SCORE CARDS OF LAUHALA AT A CARD PARTY OF THOSE WHO HAVE LIVED IN THE ISLANDS.
STANFORD UNIVERSITY, April 13, 1905.—A number of Island people met on the evening of April 7, at the home of Mr. and Mrs. A. D. Larnach, and formed what was named the “Hui Hawaii” which is intended to bring together the Hawaiians about Stanford University in a social way. It was decided to have this a most informal affair and not to choose any regular officer, but simply to have it made known at one meeting who is to entertain at the next one. Anyone who has been in the Islands is to be eligible to membership.
After the transaction of this business the distribution of beautiful leis made of fragrant roses among the lady guests, the company enjoyed themselves playing whist, as a result of which Mrs. Allen and Mr. Robinson each received a first, and Mr. Schnack the consolation prize, all of them beautiful lauhala novelties. Another novelty was the tiny lauhala fans which served in the place of tally cards. Later in the evening coffee and cake was served and then the gathering broke up with the singing of Hawaii Ponoi and the announcement that the next gathering is to take place on May 5th at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Allen.
The following were present: Mr. and Mrs. Larnach, Mrs. Perry, Mr. and Mrs. Allen, Miss E. M. Robinson, Mr. T. E. Robinson, Mrs. Jordan, Miss E. R. Pearce, Miss G. Featherstone, Mrs. Robinson, Mrs. J. C. Foss, Miss M. Foss, and Messrs. W. J. Galbraith, Jr., F. D. Mahone and F. Schnack.
