Honolulu visitors and others who would fain see the beauties of
lao Valley from the cushions of a luxurious touring car, will keep on
faining for a long time if they wait for the County of Maui to rebuild the
washed-out valley road. At least, this is the attitude of the county sup
ervisors at the present time. County Engineer Cox states that to build
a bridge across the stream below Kapaniwai and to gouge out a drive
way iii the vertical basalt cliff on the north side of the valley, will cost
some $70,000; while to do away with the bridge and keep the road en
tirely on thlp south side will cost something like $30,000. And the coun
ty hasn't the money, nor apparently the inclination, to spend it if it had,
o'n a bit of road that has almost nothing but scenery to warrant it.
Most of the county officials take the attitude that it will be up
to the next legislature to help out in this project. This, by the way, is
along the lines of the "territorial roads" plan advocated by the Civic
Convention two years ago ; a plan which will probably have to be
adopted in some form or other, sooner or later if the best interests of
ti, Tinnc na 3 tr.nrUt rpsnrt are to Unconsidered. Iao Valley is a
rase in ttoint. and the Halcakala road is another. It will be a long
time before Maui County will be warranted in assuming the burden r
cither of these projects, though the Territory needs them badly ngl

It is proper for the territory to build a road into the crater of Kil-

Letters To The Editor
Editor Maul News:
Your viewpoint on the position of
the teacher ia Interesting because it
emphasizes how little slKniflcance Is
Kiven to the Importance of the teacher
by the average person, -a fact to be de
plored. I can see no comparison, myself, be
tween the "bookkeeper, clerk" etc.
and the teacher; but granting your
contention that one Is as vital as the
other, and require no different consid
eration, let me remind you that such a
worker, as mentioned, is protected by
the choice afforded him of competing
employers. This same protection
county government would give the
You must like a man to get the best
out of him.
There has been, so far as I have
heard no question of efficiency in the
case of Mr. and Mrs. Brown nor of
th manv who have been harshly

ihat the Normal School is where the
sovcre nrunine should take place.
It seems like poor judgement to
send forth as a teacher any wnose
ability is not conclusive ana uiereanei
anhmii him tn a. checker-board exist
ence or hang a sword over his head.
Once accepted in the service every en
couragement should be given mm.
Sympathy with any criticism would
work wonders. The most earnest eff
orts of the department to progress the
schools will avail little without the
goodwill of the teachers and this can
not be obtained by harsh methods.
At present each teacher feels that
the department has a particular
grudge against him and a keen desire
for his scalp.
Unless the board tempers Its zeal
by a little knowledge of human nature
I can see no hope of the cloud lifting
and when the storm breaks the County
will have to come to the rescue.
