Mrs. Mokumaia Will Retire After 35 Years as Teacher
By MAY DAY LO
Mrs. Clara M. Mokumaia, principal of Kaloaloa school, was busy checking upon details for a Boy Scouts’ party when we found her for an interview. The sandwiches were being made, cookies were baked and 10 gallons of punch had been ordered. She had put some flowers in the school auditorium to spruce it up a bit for the party.
She had had a busy school day but she was going to return in the evening to make sure that her Boy Scouts had a good time.
“I’m strong for Boy Scout work,” she explained. “Some people object to the Scouts using the school buildings because they might damage them a little but I would rather have better boys than beautiful buildings. It is more than important to have a boy’s life clean and fit.” Continue reading

Toured U. S. and Europe as Cowboy and Crack Shot With Buffalo Bill’s Show.

In his youth Mokumaia, says the San Francisco Chronicle, was a paniolo (cowboy) and became so proficient as a horseman, roper and crack shot that he joined Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show, touring the United States and Europe as a Hawaiian cowboy.

Superintendent Recommends Establishment of Three Institutions For English-Speaking Children
Within a year or so Honolulu will have three schools primarily for English-speaking children, if recommendations made by Vaughan MacCaughey, superintendent of public instruction, are adopted by the department, and, since the law permits such schools, no objection is expected.
A committee of parents, representing some 400 English-speaking children, petitioned a recent meeting of the school board for the establishment of a school or schools for such children. The superintendent was authorized to investigate and submit a report and recommendations. Continue reading
