LAUHALA HOUSE TO BE TURNED OVER TO HOMES COMMISSION
The lauhala house planned at Keaukaha park under the supervision of the Kuhio Improvements club will be turned over to the Hawaiian Homes Commission, it was announced Saturday by James Puuohau, secretary of the club. The board of supervisors has approved of the plan of having the homes commission take charge of the construction of the unique house.
At the suggestion of Princess Abigail Kawananakoa, a member of the commission, the club is planning to establish a clinic building at Keaukaha together with the cooperation of the commission. This building will serve as a health center and baby clinic for the entire Hawaiian community at Keaukaha.

[Might any of you Hilo people know anything further about this hale, and does anyone maybe have any pictures of this?]
