Japanese Boys in Hawaii Study American Etiquette
(A.P.) Honolulu, Territory of Hawaii, Aug. 12.—After the study of social conventions and American etiquette, a number of Japanese youths of Honolulu have formed classes under the direction of the Y. W. C. A. Their first lecture drilled them in the rules of social intercourse —how to tip one’s hat “American fashion,” how to greet friends, followed by an explanation of the chaperone idea.
Other lectures will deal with table etiquette, business etiquette, social calls, writing of notes, home life and other topics. Classes in etiquette were originated a year ago by the Y. W. C. A., for Japanese girls who expressed a desire to become fully Americanized. – San Diego Union and Daily Bee, 1918
