THE CALM SEAS OF KONA
KAHALA, Honolulu, January 5, 1945—The nurses and all the employees of The Queen’s Hospital gave a luau in the memory of the birthday of Queen Emma Kaleleonalani, on the grounds of the hospital. There were many people who were invited, and there were many who attended. We two [Evelyn Desha and Stephen Desha Jr.] were among the invited, and my companion [Mr. Desha] was invited to speak on the life of Queen Emma. There were many who entertained at that luau. Singing groups with their hula girls. Something that really made the two of us happy was our meeting and shaking hands with Admiral Nimitz, General Smith, and Governor Stainback. The ideas below are some that were spoken of by my friend on that afternoon.
In the afternoon of Sunday, June 3, the Hula Studio of Albert Nahale-a [Pa Hula a Albert Nahale-a] arrived at the Puumaile Hospital to entertain the patients at that home.
It was heard that a Hula Studio would come to entertain the patients, and it was questioned, who was coming down, and in the afternoon of Saturday it was clear, the Hula Studio that was coming down.
A little before the clock struck 3:00 P. M., the bell to rise rang. The people got up and made ready for the arrival of the Hula Studio. Nahale-a’s people arrived, and a little bit after 3:00 P. M. the emcee announced that they were ready to start the activities. Continue reading
