Warm Welcome for Hawaiians: It was a warm welcome that the family of Phyllis Yabui, a graduating senior at Eastern Michigan University, received yesterday when they flew into Detroit from Maui, Hawaii, to be on hand for Saturday's commencement ceremonies. President Harold E. Sponberg was at the airport along with Phyllis, and about 15 girls from Goddard Hall. The girls presented Phyllis' father and grandfather with leis they had made from Michigan flowers. In exchange, Phyllis presented her roommate Ruth Schleicher (right) and Suzanne Campbell, advisor of Goddard, with a fresh pineapple straight from Hawaii. From left are Eitaro Kishi, Phyllis' grandfather; Shizue Yabui, her mother; Debbie, her sister; Shayne, her brother; and Toshio Yabui, her father. Last Christmas, the Goddard girls collected enough money to send Phyllis to Hawaii for the holidays.
