Americans Manufacture
False Myths of Hawaii

Initial Speech PlayWill Open TodayI


* *


Hawaii may mean grass skirts
and primitive natives to many
Americans, but the large popula-
tion centers there are just as
modern as nany American cities,
according to Clarence Yee, 'SOP,'
vice-president of the Hawaii Club.
Acquainting University students
with Hawaii is one of the main
purposes of the Hawaii Club.
* * *
"WE FEEL THAT if more peo-
ple can get to know what Ha-
waiians are really like, it will be
easier to gain support for Ha-
waii's bid for statehood," Yee ex-
Talented club members have
Eklund Will
John M. Eklund, national presi-
dent of the American Federation
of Teachers will speak at a meet-
ing of the local chapter at 8 p.m.
today in Rm. 3G of the Union.
Mr. Eklund who is currently
Education Adviser to the Veterans
Administration will talk on the
subject, "Teachers Speak for
Themselves." The meeting is open
to the public.
He is expected to outline the
philosophy of his organization as
the representative of the rank and
flle 'classroom teachers, as dis-
tinct from administrators and su-
pervisory personnel.
Dean Woodburne
Will Speak Today
Associate Dean Lloyd S. Wood-
burne of the literary college will
speak on "The Selection, Promo-
tion, and Appraisal of the College
Teacher" at 7 p.m. today in Rm.
110 of the General Library.
The lecture will be delivered at
a meeting of a graduate seminar
in higher education, but all in-
terested persons are invited to at-

demonstrated the. colorful hula
dances and. Hawaiian songs for
various campus groups. They
provided entertainment for sev-
eral League dances last year and
perfdrmed in the annual May
Day Festival presented by the
International Center.
The Hawaii Club was organized
two years ago by Bill Miller, '49,
who became interested in Hawaii
when he was stationed there dur-
ing the war.
* * *
STARTING with 30 members,
the club now has a roll call of
more than 100. Any University
student may join.
Male club members complain
that they have been hit harder
than other groups by the Uni-
versity's woman shortage. The
ratio of the Hawaii club is 12
to 1, according to Yee.
The club has its own orientation
program for incoming Hawaiians.
It also publishes The Hawaii-Ann,
a bi-weekly newspaper.
* * *
HIGHLIGHT of the club's so-
cial activities are the dinners at
which members recapture a touch
of home life with their favorite
Hawaiian dishes.
For their biggest affair, a
Christmas dinner, a "luau," or
Hawaiian feast is being planed.
This consists, of a pig surround-
ed by ti leaves and yams, and
roasted in an oven of huge heat-
ed rocks called an "imu."
The Hawaii Club, however, will
moderate the traditional proce-
dure slightly. It will cook the
"luau" in a pressure cooker.

The Undergraduate Psychology
Club will meet at 8:15 p.m. today
in the Russian Tea Room of the

by Prof. William C. Morse, director

Commedia dell' Arte as closely as
possible. All the actors will appear
in masks and no use will be made
of a curtain throughout the play.
"Servant of Two Masters" re-

ters, and Dick Rifenberg as Flor-

forts of Prof. G. E. Densmore,
chairman of the speech depart-
Prof. Densmore felt the need
to give speech students not in
the department's dramatic pro-
ductions a chance to have con-
tact with work in dramatics.
The Workshop will attempt such
projects as giving readings of new
Broadway plays, playing record-
ings of Shakespeare and delivering
talks. The gorup may also expe-

Sensitivity of earthquake detec-
tion by the University seismo-
graph station is being increased
by the modernization and addi-
tion of new equipment, according
to Prof. James T. Wilson of the
geology department.
The first of three seismo-rap:;s
which records north and south
earth tremors, has been put into
operation in a new seismograph
station building in the courtyard
of the Natural Science Building.
THE SECOND seismograph,
which will record east and west
tremors, will be completed next
month, and a third instrument
will be installed next year to re-
cord vertical earth movements.
Of the 75 stations in North
America the University seismo-
graph station, which was estab-

With some parts from the old
instruments being used in the new

instruments are the same. The

the delicately suspended mirror to
