A GREAT PARADE AND AN OLD-TIME LUAU

Great preparations are being made for the pa-u parade on Kamehameha Day. The ladies who are to take part have been assured that Frank Andrade, who conducted the successful parade on Washington’s birthday, will give them his help, and will also ride in the procession. A feature of the day’s celebration will be the luau which is to follow the parade, and which will be a genuine old-fashioned Hawaiian feast, such as is seldom attempted here.

The following is a list of the officers of the Hui Holopa-u Maile Alii: Mrs. Kainana Puahi, president and manager; Mrs. S. Kamaiopili, vice-president; Mrs. Lilian Keaomalu, secretary; Mrs. Wahinekapu Kamahaku, assistant secretary; Mrs. J. H. S. Kaleo, treasurer; Mrs. H. Van Giesen, assistant treasurer; Mrs. Woolsey and Mrs. Mary Ann Maikai, assistant managers; Mrs. A. Maikai and Mrs. Johnson, standing committee; Mrs. Nakapaahu, special committee.

MRS. KAINANA PUAHI,

President Hui Holopa-u Maile Alii.
