Congratulations to our League members on Maui who earned their Provisional League status.

The Honolulu Board welcomed them with a subscription to the Duplicate President's Mailing (DPM) from National.


Hawaii will be well-represented at the LWVUS convention in Houston. Rhoda Miller will be attending as state president, Marion Saunders as state delegate, and Arlene Woo will be representing Honolulu. There will also be a Kauai delegate and her husband rounding out the Hawaii delegation.


If you see some of our members flexing newly-developed arm muscles, be prepared to praise them with much appreciation.

Our grateful thanks to Carol Whitesell, Barbara Farwell and Nan Luter for moving the League, "shelves, files and paper clips" to our new headquarters, and to Sharon Yokote, Helen Wharton, Myrne Blomquist, Rhoda Miller and Marian Wilkins for the nice paint job.


The Honolulu City & County Cmte on the Status of Women is sponsoring its Second Annual Women's Solidarity Luncheon at the Ala Moana Hotel on June 12th.

The LWV of Hawaii joined with the Business and Professional Women of Hawaii, the AAUW, NOW, YWCA, and other women's groups to sponsor a resolution commemorating the tenth anniversary of the adoption of the ERA amendment to the Hawaii State Constitution.

Introduced by Senator Pat Saiki, the resolution was passed by both Houses of the legislature and will be sent. with a cover letter, to the 15 states that still have not adopted the ERA amendment.
