More on the winning 8th grade class, 1921.


The eighth grade of the Kamehameha School for Boys was awarded the silver loving cup, the George Alanson Andrus trophy, in the annual interclass singing contest held at the Bishop museum last night. There are about 25 boys in the class.

The songs which brought the class the honors were “The Solider’s Farewell,” an original composition, two Hawaiian songs, “Akahi Hoi” and “Nani Wale Lihue,” and the Kamehameha School song.

The cup was presented to the class by Chester G. Livingston, chairman of the judges. The trophy was given as a memorial to George Alanson Andrus, formerly director of music at the Kamehameha Schools.

The judges based their decision on volume, harmony, originality and rendition. No musical instruments for accompaniment were used.
