Dr. I an McLaren, who for the
past two months and a lialf has been
physical director at the Alexander
House Gymnasium, tendered his
resignation to the hoard of directors
on Wednesday, and will leave Maui,

up the work lie stated to the board
that he believed he has accomplish
ed all that it is possible for him to
do, and that in justice to the man
agement he believed it his duty to
Dr. McLaren in the time he has
b(vn here, has accomplished much
thafrhould bo of permanent value
to the institution and to the com
munity. Through bis efforts the
membership of the gymnasium has
been increased by 80, from 150 to
230, and the physical work system
atized and the records put is good
shape. Besides this-Dr. McLaren
has devoted himself to the organi
zation of the boy scout movement
throughout Maui, and aroused much
interest in this work.
In speaking of bis reasons for
leaving Dr. McLaren said: "There
was no longer work enough to keep
mo busy, and I am not enough of a
soldier to be content to sit around
and draw my salary. It would not
be just to the people who are main
taining the gymnasium. The weather
is too warm for heavy forms of ath
letics, and I do not care to be simp
ly a caretaker of the gym. It will
bo possible for tho work that is
being done to continue with simply
a care taker for the apparatus and
the building. I feel that I have ac
complished my' mission here, and
leave feeling that I have been of
some real benefit in systematizing
tho work, which can now be carried
on very well without an expert."
Dr. McLaren lias made many
friends during his short residence
on Maui, who will regret to see him
leave. An effort is being made to
have him organize a boy scout com
mittee on Kauai, which he may
possibly undertake, after which he
