GETTING UNDER COVER
Caucht yesterday in as brazen a nnliticar
trick a wa vir tried in this territory, Kuliio
; and hbTmanageraiirtrgeM just
as fast asjthey can. '
' Kuliio backs out of any responsibility for that
appeal to nice prejudice contained in the "postal
card, call" by declaring that he didn't 'we'' the
card sent out, that Ins committee did it all.
And his committee, composed of the saintly
and sweet-scented Mr. Andrews and three oth
crs, issue a statement this morning in which they
also 'back out of responsibility for w raising the
race issue. .;,.v:.'0-: ; ' -
Incidentally, they characterize as "utterly
false and untrue" the statement, in this paper
that 'instructions are leing; given by. Kuhio's
managers to Ilawaiians to vote a straight .Ha
v.aiiah ticket with the exception of a few fav
ored haoles. However, this doesn't happen ' to
be either, false or untrue, whatever the differ
cuce in the two; words, may mean to Kuhio's
rputteringly indignant managers.- It is true. It
lias been ' repeated Outside Kuliio: headquarters

camp that their information is not to be ques

done repeatedly during the hearings before Mr.
Fisher, exhibited a lack of constructive criti

a comment that amounted to rebukei- the v com

the motives. of another whojiaif not done some
thing that the first man cannot tell, how to do.

quickly by a few very simple questions put for
information by the secretary, got himself on rec

k Here is the explanation of the conV
pany's'plan i : Tour; moist reliable' and
responsible merchants will pajrv into
your child's bank accounts 1-2 per
cent of all cash purchases of 50 cents
ofmore made by you and by' your
iriends at their stores; If you run ah
iccount many of these n merchants
jive you "2 1-2 perlcentof, your'.'biU
jrhen you pay it. A; . A '' l ;
X Payment of this 2 1-2; per centA is
made' in the' form of coupons, to be
leposited in a bank. The coupons are
ion-negotiable ; . that is. they cannot be
converted in to cash. '. No cumbersome
hethod of registering the child is.nec
ssary. The coupons' are good only
or deposit in a sound bank. - Here
hey, are accepted as cash deposited in
he name of your child. ? The coupons
or deposit are to be taken to the
iank in an amount not less than. $1.
The banker accepts the coupons as
ash deposited and, makes out in the
child's name a regular bank passbook,
it the same time issuing a certificate
)f membership. The bankbook re
nalns in possession of the child and
ihows the amount deposited. ':
This money cannot be drawn from
he bank until the child has arrived at
.he age of 21. On that day the bank
er, will pay over the money the child
leposited, with a smile of encourage
ment and' a.wish for the success of the
oy or girl.
This is an interesting variation of
he merchandise coupon idea; it Is one
vhich, in good hands, ought to. work
veil to encourage the growth of thrift.
