KA LA KANU LAAU!
This is the day to plant trees as proclaimed by the Governor last week. On this day, the school teachers across the Territory will take the trees set aside for their schools and plant them in designated places.
On this morning Dr. Hobdy will speak before the students of Punahou College at Pauahi Hall pertaining to this effort. During this time, Mrs. L. Moses will speak before the female students in Bishop Hall pertaining to caring for ones health. The new school will also follow on the same path, that being the College of Hawaii.
