The Administrator of New Zealand's mandate over Western Samoa, Stephen Shepherd Allen, is demanding that a Samoan changes his lavalava (or native dress) which is labelled 'Samoan customs - Mau' for black trousers labelled 'mandate rule'.New Zealand's administration of the mandate had been under severe challenge from the Mau nationalist movement. After the arrival of a cruiser from New Zealand early in 1930 to suppress the nationalists, and the Aministration's threat to use several hundreds of non-Mau Samoans to reinforce the sailors in hunting them down, the Mau came out of hiding in late March 1930 and agreed to disperse.
