Maul and the Army went nine chuk
kurs yesterday before the supremacy
of the day was decided, when Harold
Rice drove a beautLful shot through
the posts after five minutes of play
which gave Maul the odd score and
they won to 8V4, says last Sunday's
Advertiser. This gives Maul second
place In the Inter-Island series.
The game started slow and the play
was curious. Doth teams seemed to be
warming up and maneuvering In an at
tempt to feel out their opponent. But
by degrees the play grew faster, until
the last four chukkurs were a whirl

hitting and reckless play. Probably
never before in Honolulu has there

gold and black In the first half, but
the Valley Island four came up from
the rear at the opening of the fifth
chukkurs and fought an uphill battle,
finally winning by desperate play in
the last period.
Harold Rice and Sam Baldwin Star
Every man on the Maui team gave
all he had and the splendid work of
Harold Rice and Sam Baldwin stand
out as features of the day. Time and
again the big fellow from down coun
try rode through the field, and by sheer
force, made his way with the ball
down the field. His hitting was sure
and timely, and his ponies behaved ad
mirably. Those large awkward looking
ponies of Mr. Baldwins are somewhat
deceiving, for on more than one occa
sion, they outran some of the fleet
Army thoroughbreds. To Harold Rice
goes the credit for winning the game
for his team, not only because he
scored the winning goal, but because of
his consistent riding and playing, from
the -first period until the end of the
game. The big No. 2 was all over the
field, and surely gave a rare account
If the dopsters figured that the Maui
contingent were to be weakened by the
substitution of Sam Baldwin, their
predictions were rudely shattered in
the game yesterday. The hard work
ing little No. 1 was everywhere and
it might be said he shared honors
equally with Rice. His work was effec

riding off of opponents was a constant
source of worry to the service men.

School To Have
The department of instruction has
caused to be published in pamphlet
form, for handy reference and study,
all the territorial health laws. These
will be sent to all instructors through
the Islands, to be utilized for their
own and the students' education.
The subject is taught in the grade
schools as a part of the course of
study under the head of "Public Hy
giene." Teachers, especially those
from the States, have difficulty in obt
aining the territorial laws and in find
ing those particularly applicable to
their own work. The pamphlet will
be included in the teachers' manual.
It contains all statutes relating to
the sanitary condition of buildings ; re.
port to authorities of contagious dis
eases; prevention of tuberculosis;
manufacture and sale of pol, fruit,
garden stuffs, fish, dairy products, and
the like; barber shops, flies, mosquit
oes, school supervision, health certi
ficates required from teachers, and all
kindred subjects on which the Instruct
ors must have definite, detailed in

PARENTS AND CLUB WORK.
Parental Aid and Encouragement Es
sential to Success of Club Members.
An illustration of the great import
ance of the attitude of parents toward
the work of members of the boys' agri
cultural clubs which have been organ
ized throughout the country by the
department is found by specialists in
cooperative demonstration work In
two cases reported from the same
State. The incidents are accepted as
showing the value of parental sympa
thy and consideration, particulary iu
the solution of the problem of keeping
the members of the younger genera
tion on the farm.
In one case it was found that the
boy of the family was helped and en
couraged from the time he first joined
a corn club. His father permitted the
use of one of the best acres on the
farm, gave him barnyard manure, and
allowed the use of the necessary
horses and machinery. The young
club member produced more than 100
bushels of corn on his single acre the
first year and has been consistently
successful since. He has even estab
lished a reputation as a breeder of
fine seed corn. During the four years
of his membership in corn, pig, and
other clubs, he has won more than
$400 in prizes, and, with his profits,
has acquired ownership of seven head
of pure-bred Duroc Jersey hogs, six
head of well-bred cattle, and a horse.
The home la said to be Ideal, the
father and son being reported as
"chummy as school boys." The boy
has no thought of taking up life In the
city, but is planning a constructive
future on the farm.
In the second case the results have
been wholly different. The young son
of this family Joined a Kafir club, but
when the crop was gathered the grain
was placed in a general farm bin and
he received no value from it. The
following year he joined a pig cllb;
and when his father called attention
to the lack of feed, he hired himself
to a neighboring farmer to secure
The money which he earned was,
however, pocketed by the father.
Wholly discouraged, the young boy
shortly afterwards ran away from
home and is now working in a city of
a neighboring State.
The incidents have been used by
the State demonstration agent of the
State in which they occurred as the
text for an urgent appeal to all pk
ents to encourage their children in tire
constructive work they are undertak
ing in the clubs. One factor which
will be helpful, it la pointed out.ds per
mitting the young people to receive
