Study Continued by
Members of the Methodist Wo-
man's Society of Christian Service
gathered in the Church Parlor on
Wednesday afternoon, April 13, 1949
to continue tht Study of Frank S.
Mead's book, "On Our Own Door-
step". Mrs. Rollo Davidson, Secre-
tary of Missionary Education, pre-
sided. Theme: "Hawaii".
The Devotional given by Mrs. Joe
January, opened with reading the
Hawailans Dock Song, "Hawaii Alo-
ha" followed with group singing
hymn, "I Love to Tell the Story"
with pianist, Mrs. Chester Carr
Meditation: "The Church at the
Crossroads". Poems: "The House by
the Side of the Road", "The crowd-
ed Ways of Life" and "Fair Haw-
aii". Closing with a Hawaii prayer.
Mrs. A. C. Doyle brought the talk
on "Hawaii", a land spendthrift
with color and romance.
Out of an estimated 502,122 peo-
ple, there are but 14,246 pure Ha-
waiian*. Hawaii is no mere map-
spot; it is Uncle. Sam's sociological
laboratory; a chain of islands 2,000
miles long, being 2,100 miles from
San Francisco and 3.400 miles from
Yokohama, the crossroads of the
Hordes of Immigrants who pour-
ed into the Islands, worked the
sugar and pineapple plantations.
Every child from six to fourteen
goes to school five days a week,
many of them, coming out of homes
where English is not spoken. The
Schools are now providing vocation-
al agricultural, vocational shop and
vocational homemaking classes, to
care for the labor problem.
Until the war came, the Buddists
and the Shintoists were the strong-
est single group in the Islands. To
day there is a numerical Christian
Church-member strength of ap-
proximately 181,489. The Honolulu
Council of Churches is working in
a Filipino United Church. The con-
gregational Christian Churches put
their accent on youth. Then there
the Church of the Crossroads,
which when first organized, was
called the Young People's Service.
There is much cause for hope in
Hawaii, as she goes on from her
appreciation that "Got! Hath Made
of one Blood All Nations of Men".
Study Session was dismissed with
prayer by Mrs. J. A. Stalcup. At-
tending were: Mines. Rollo David-
