    George had yet to make the decision on whether to retire from his house seat. It had been held by the family for a very long time. George's oldest daughter expressed an interest in running for the seat as well as his nephew ( son of his younger sister and a former Naval officer}, George's chief of staff also expressed an interest. Charles B Kamehameha II already held a house seat but thought about moving into George's district and running for that seat. George decided to back his daughter after sounding out the party. So Kathleen Elizabeth Kamehameha won the party's endorsement and George announced his retirement from the house and support for his daughter. He also announce the appointment of his former Chief of Staff to a position with the General Services Administration.
    Kathleen won the election with 74% of the vote in the election.
    Richard Nufro managed to win the election to the Prime Minister's post by carrying the party to another win. The National Conservative Party won 256 seats out of 500 and the Liberal Democrat Party won 240 and 4 seats were won by the Social Democrats..
    George went to the palace to turn in the seal and was informed by His Majesty that there would be an official ceremony in 7 days in which the King would award George the Highest Civilian metal for service to Hawaii.

    Nufro Administration: The new Prime Minister was an experienced diplomat but not an experienced politican. He had learned a little while serving as a member of the house. He was George W Kamehameha's closest friend and he had advised his friend on what he would be facing. George knew that the party only held a majority of 6 seats so they needed to watch things. He ( Richard) reached across the aisle to reach a deal on a number of issues. He needed a Secretary of the Treasury and asked Charles B Kamehameha to take the post for a year. Charles B was mot a politican but a banker. He never had the public service bug bite him but he had briefly in the past helped brother George out and his son was a member of the house. He agreed to serve briely.

    Kathleen E Kamehameha was one of the newest members of the Freshman class of the Hawaiian House. She had a position on the House Education Committee, House Banking Committee and the Armed Services Committee. She turned down a post of whip preferring to get to know the job first. She had worked in her fathers office and then had worked in banking for 2 years and a teacher for 4. When her father had talked about retiring she had returned to his office and had sought the nomination. Her current boyfriend was Lt Tommy McNamara Royal Hawaiian Navy. Tommy worked for the Office of Naval Intelligence and was formerly a Navy Cop. William had told George that he was a good man and not to worry.

    Kathleen put forward an Education Reform bill with the help of Rep Maurice Evans LD-Tahiti. The Bill passed out of Committee and passed the house with 294 to 206.. She then introduced the Creation of the Royal Hawaiian Air Force Bill which formally moved the RHAF from an executive creation of the Prime Minister's Office to a recognized branch of the Armed Forces 304 to 196

    Prime Minister Nufro made his first stop as Prime Minister to the United States where he me with President Coolidge and then met with the Canadian Prime Minister. He concluded his first trip with stops in Neuva Granada and the Brazilian Empire. He then returned home to see the budget battle take place. The Biggest battles were over defense with the Social Democrats totally opposed and the Liberal Democrats also disagreeing to some of the spending proposals. The Former Prime Minister testified on the need to modernize the Navy.

    The Prime Minister was not yet an accomplished politician. He was a skilled diplomat but had yet to know how to do things. George learned from his daughter that his old friend was having serious problems.. Thus he decided to intervene and invite him to lunch and discuss the problems that he was having. His friend had been Prime Minister for 7 months and in a secret poll taken by the University of Hawaii there were indications that the Liberal Democrat leader could win an election if it was held in 1929.

    The Prime Minister was glad for any help that he could get. He would try some of George's suggestions. George made it clear that he had no interest in returning to Political office. Privately he told his friend that if it looked like the party was going to loose he would find support quickly disappear.

    Prime Minister Nufro address the Royal Hawaiian Coast Guard Class at their Academy in Tahiti. This was the first Academy located out of the Hawaiian Islands. In his address he pointed out that the job of the Guard was of critical importance to the security of the nation. The Guard enforced the maritime safety laws, prevented Smuggling and rescued ships and boats in distress.
