THE MAUI NEWS, SATURDAY, JUNE 27, 1914.
The Kuinlin Club, a woman's
organization composed for the most
part of the women of the Haiku
homestead district, at its annual
meeting held last week, decided to
take a hand in stimulating inter
est in Hawaiian pineapple on the
mainland. Each of the 25 or 30
members have agreed to write five
letters to friends on the mainland,
telling them of Hawaii's Pineapple
Day which is to be celebrated on Aug
ust 15th, and asking that they each
purchase a can of pineapple on that
day. Also they will be asked, pro
vided they like the fruit, to write
to other friends of theirs concern
ing it--n sort of endless-chain
The homestead women believe
that considerable effective adver
tising can be done through this
means, and hope also, thatvsoine
hints of value may come back re
garding retail prices in different
parts of the country and difficulties
which may prevail in distribution
The Kuinlin Club is starting up
on its second yenr of very success
ful existence. At the Inst meeting

Pioneer Exceeds Estimate
Instead of a shortage in the crop
of the Pioneer Mill Company, as at
first reported, the season, which
ended at noon last Saturday, shows
oOl tons over the last estimate of
2S.000 tons. This, by the way, is
1301 tons above theoriiunal estimate
of 27,000 tons, and the yield has
only been exceeded twico before
in mi 1 and 1912. Incidentally the
season was closed tliia year more
than a month earlier than last year,
which establishes a record in this
respect at Pioneer. From all indi
cations, this plantation should also
have nr. excellent crop forncxtyear.
Some good rains during the past few
montli3 have helped out greatly, but
the new irrigation system, with its
hydro electric plant for pumping,
makes tho company largely inde
pendent of local rainfall, and in
better shape than it has ever been
Picnics in Iao a Menace
Editor Maui Nnws:
On Saturday, June 20, about 200
Japanese school children went up
Iao Valley for a picnic, which when
it is taken into consideration that
the drinking water of Wailuku and
Kahului conies from there, should
not be allowed, for the danger of
contamination is great. Notices
should be posted in the Valley, and
if not obeyed, the police should
round up the offenders.
It is not necessary that people
go into the water in order to con
taminate it, since the whole of the
gulch drains into the stream. With
typhoid fever prevailing in some of
the places where these children
came from, the danger is doubly
If the people will get busy and
put in the new extension of pipe,
Iao valley will be open for picnics.

A very large crowd attended the
reception and dance at the Gym.

and friends of tho dancing c'ass.

handsome bracelet, tho gift of her
dancing class. The bracelet, which
was engraved with a token of es
teem, was presented by the Rev.

address, while Miss Hoffman
clasped the circlet about Miss Stark
weather s wrist.

A very largely attended meeting
of the Maui Athletic Association
was held at the Town Hall on
Wednesday evening, the principal
topic of discussion being the pro
spective visits of the All-Sen'ice,
the All-Student baseball Teams.
The All-Service team consisting of
twelve men in charge of Eieut.

Mourn, John M. Medeiros and J.
Gnrcia. The players will be escorted

The first game between All-Maui

is the fastest team in Honolulu)
will be played at the Kahului ball
grounds, game being called at 3:30
p. m. sharp. A committee of the
Maui Athletic Association will

Team may play this game with the
Edward N. Awana of the First
National Bank was appointed to
have full charge of all tickets, ap
pointment of gate keepers, and
handling f finances. If the Asso
ciation is financially successful
with the series, it is possible that
an entertainment of some sort will
be provided for the Service team.
The Service team will leave for
Honolulu via the Manna Kea, La
haina Monday night the 6th.
Manager Chillingworth says that
his team is in good shape, and that

lays between Meyer and Bal.
ALL STUDENT'S SCHEDULE
The All-Student Team of Hono
lulu, will arrive Saturday morning,
the 11th, playing one game with
All-Maui the same afternoon, and
one game on Sunday. This team is
composed of such good diamond
men as Bill Ininaii, Harold Bald
win, Gay, Quintal, et al, and it is
needless to say, Maui will once
more have to stretch herself to keep
honors at home. The arranginents
for the All-Student team have been
placed in the hands of Harold Bald
LAST SUNDAY'S GAMES
East Sunday's local league game
between Puunene and Wailuku was
not as exciting as it might have
been, the Wailuku team proving
far superior to the Puunene bunch
Bill Scholt. of Puunene is pitching
some grand baseball, but he does
not seem to have the support that
he deserves, which more or less
discourages him. With a fast team
behind him, Scholtz would make
Class A pitcher. The Wailuku .team
has now cinched the first series of
the 1914 league, and will now en
deavor to win out the second series.
The first game last Sunday be
tween the Cubs and Gymnasium
proved to be a very close and in
teresting one, going into ten
inning before being finally decided
in the Cubs favor by scoreof 6 to 5.
These two teams have been strug
gling for supremacy, and this game
decided the champions of the first
series, with Cubs as victors. They
are naturally highly elated. The
Gymnasium team is a fast one, and
they have some good ball players
such as Hansen and Harvest, but
it is too bad that this team also has
some rowdies who should have been
benched at last Sunday's game.
There are three or four players on
this team who show their tempers
and express it in foul language
every time the team is behind, and
the team would be much better off
without these men.
A feature vpf Sunday's came
much out of the ordinary, was the
decision made in the last run ly
Umpire Garcia, while standing on
his ear. The stunt was a new one
to the fans, and it made a big hit.
Entries are now being taken for
tho second sports night at the
Gym., which takes place on the
11th inst. One of the features on
this occasion will bo a jiujitsu ex
hibition. Much enthusiasm is being mani
fested in the organization of a soc
cer club. At a well attended meet
ing on Wednesday night it was de
cided to push the completion of
several teams, and A. C. Rattray of
Kahului and J. C. Foss, of Wai
luku were appointed to receive
names of those who wish to join.
Father Ambrose has been ap
pointed scout master for the Puu
nene Lion Patrol No. 3, Boy
Scouts of America.
Dr. McLaren will address a meet
ing at tho Makawao theater at
4:30 o'clock on Monday afternoon,
on the boy scout movement.
As soon as uniforms and other
equipment arrives, which aro ex
pected early in August, all the boy
scout patrols are planning to go into
camp at Waiheo for a week or
