The Epicure's Food Mart By GRACE TOWER WARREN 1 TO HAVE BEEN TAUGHT THE hula by' a king and now to be the only living exponent of the ancient hula is a distinction belonging to Mrs. John H. Wilson, wife of Honolulu's recently elected mayor. "Wlfen I was 17 years old," relates Mrs. Wilson, "Queen Kapio-lani came to my mother and asked that I be allowed to study the hula. I had always wanted to learn the dance, ever since I was a little girl, so I was delighted." n n m It was none other than King Ka-Iakaua who was the teacher. There were 16 young girls in the group, eight tall ones and eight short. The lessons were an hour in length and the instruction took place twice a week, Tuesdays and Thursdays at the King's boat house. "King Kalakaua sat down while he instructed us," continued Mrs. Wilson. He said we must always have a little smile but we must never giggle. That he would not tolerate. The well known hula, Ale Koki was composed by the King. "The modern hula is a story. The eyes and the hands tell the story of the song. The feet and hips take the place of the drum or gourd in beating the time." MM Mrs. Wilson relates that the king was very patient with his pupils, who later were permitted to dance for visiting dignitaries of foreign governments and high ranking naval officers of the American fleet when its ships put in here for anchorage. The death of King Kalakaua interrupted the hula lessons of the "sweet sixteen' young students. But Mrs. Wilson's parents sent to Kauai for Namaielua and Kapa-ona, a couple who were said to be very proficient in the ancient hula. For six weeks these people resided at the Kapahukula Huhu home. while the daughter and a few of her friends were carefully trained. mtt John and Kalaiolele Kamanoulu were the blood parents of Mrs. Wil ANNOUNCEMENT has been made of the engagement of Miss Betty Mae Howard of Honolulu and Goli-ardo Chierici of Pittsburgh, Pa.

The young girl was sent to the Catholic Sisters' school and the Bingham school (later known as Kawaiahao seminary.) After the death -of Kalakaua his sister, Liliuokalani became, queen, and Mrs. Wilson and some of her fellow students were frequently called upon to dance for her royal highness. m m m Some of the girls who were in that first hula class were Pauahi Pinao, Annie Cooper, Nakai (last name not remembered) M a 1 i e Kaleikoa, Hannah Punini, and Aiala, another whose family name Mrs. Wilson does not recollect. The first three girls- accom panied Mrs. Wilson to the Chicago exposition in 1893. The hula was quite a novelty in those days, and people flocked by the thousand to see the Hawaiian dance. After the engagement at the fair the dancers went to Europe "where they remained for a year, going from one large city to another as exponents of Hawaii's hula. m m m Mrs. Wilson was at the Hawaiian village in the Omaha exposition in 1899. and at the Buffalo exposition in 1901, at the latter place matron-izing eighteen girls. In one of the dramatic presentations she played the part of Madam Pele, fire goddess. After her engagements on the mainland Mrs. Wilson returned to Hawaii and taught hula dancing During the years of her teaching she had hundreds of pupils.
