THE MAUI NEWS
WHAT MAUI SHOULD DO
By Governor L. E. Pinkham
Maui should be able to decide what the inhabitants of the Hawai
ian Islands are to subsist on in case they are blockaded by enemies or
cut off by 'strikes from sources of supply on the mainland and lack of
transportation by sea.
The latter conditions impended a few months ago when there was
less than two weeks supply of flour within the territory and other staples
were altogether lacking or nearly exhausted.
There are three things to be absolutely considered :
First, a limited number of prescribable products to be groivn;
Second, the process to be used for preservation;
Third, the means of distribution in the face of an enemy.
The first two problems have been put up to the College of Hawaii.
We shoull be glad to have pratical suggestions from the Maui
County Fair. We want no dreams or bulletin.
The Maui News is "all fair" this issue. But, all Maui will be
all fair all next week.

MAUI WILL WELCOME EVERY VISITOR
Less than a week from the first day of the Maui County Fair, it
is more evident than ever that Maui people are going to have much to
he elated over, even after the fair is retained only in pleasant re
collection, as an event of great entertainment and instruction. Dur
ing its progress there will be much cause for pride, and proof sufficient
that all advance claims made for the fair have not been mere boast
fulness. This much is apparent today, with the beautiful fair ground site
set off with yards and yards of white "tops" the "tented city" which
has grown from the first modest plans for the fair, when it was thought
that the exhibition could be given in the armory, with perhaps one or
two other building for the overflow.
While Maui is greatly appreciative of the efforts of its. own citi
zens, who have sacrificed time from their business to work for the
success of the fair, she is still more appreciative of the way the exhibi
tors of the other islands have responded to her invitation to be repre
sented. It is, in part, on account of interest on the other islands that
the fair has grown to such proportions that it nearly attains the stand
ing of a territorial fair.
Maui's reputation for "putting things over," the community abili
ty and willingness to pull together whether for an event of minor or
major importance, has helped much in securing "outside" repre
sentation and general island interest. Xo discount will have to be given
on that reputation during or after November 30, December 1 and 2. This
event will be one more demonstration that Maui follows its motto of
-Maui No Ka Oi."
Only one word can be added for the intended visitor: While the
fair is going to be nearly of urban greatness, Maui people will extend
to every stranger an individual welcome of just as genuine sincerity
as ever in the past.
THAT ELECTION OF GOVERNOR FANCY
Any belief that Delegate Kuhio could be successful in securing
the passage of a bill in Congress permitting Hawaii to elect its gover
nor is as chimerical as is the talk of statehood for the islands. Most
of those who have treated the Delegate's reported plan with serious
ness know this is so, and it is doubtful that even Kuhio himself con
' sidered the subject seriously, any longer than while he was telling a
Honolulu reporter about his intentions.
Maui people will remember that it was only a few weeks ago when
the Delegate made the statement to a Wailuku audience that our form
of self government wasin danger of being restricted, rather than en
larged. He gave as his reason for this statement the very argument
that is used as a conclusive one in Washington against Hawaii state
hood : that the voters of a foreign race would within a few years acquire
the political control of the islands. This opinion has been reflected
time and time again by every Congressional party which has visited
the islands. Never has it been possible to arouse any enthusiasm
among these notable visitors over giving us statehood, however friendly
ly they might appear on any other question affecting the islands.
The idea that we will be given the right to elect our governor
while still a territory, is absurd on its face. Territories under our
form of government do not elect their governors ; never have, and pro
bably never will. Hawaii will be no exception, even though some of
our clever politicians in control of the majority of the island voters
would like very much to have an opportunity to name our territorial

CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM OF THE TERRITORIAL NOR
MAL SCHOOL SYSTEM
(From The Star Bulletin)
By its letter to the governor, the school superintendent and the
commissioners of public instruction, the College Club has opened up
discussion of certain phases of the public school system here to which
there is a strong and growing opposition.
The club's letter, courteously, temperately yet firmly worded makes
two requests reasonable first, that competent graduates of mainland
institutions teaching pedagogy should be put at least on an equality
with the graudates of the Territorial Normal School in filling positions;
and second, that the territory invite expert and constructive criticism
through the Federal School Survey.
The letter sets forth the reason for this request so fully and suc
cinctly that summary in these columns is needless. The College Club's
case is further backed up, this paper understands, by authoritative
statements and in some cases affidavits. The club, we are assured, has
considered its present action so long and so carefully that it is free of
any charge of acting in haste, through prejudice, or to meddle. It
desires to help to help not only young islanders who wish to complete
their education elsewhere and then return to Hawaii and teach, but
also the whole school system and the thousands of young Americans
under its guidance.
The governor and the superintendent of public instruction have
invited constructive criticism. This is constructive criticism of the
normal school system in Hawaii.
SPECIAL EDITION HIGHLY COMPLIMENTED
Well deserved compliments greeted the double eight-page sections
of the Star-Bulletin fair edition, when it was received on Maui last
Sunday. 1 he many columns devoted to the fair and this island were
interestingly written and well illustrated. It was a work of excellent
promotion for the fair, and, as an addition to a usually large Saturday
edition, a credit to the editorial ability, mechanical and typographical
skill of the office from which it was issued The Maui News with all
of Maui congratulates its publishers. To this fchould be added a word
of thanks from Maui to all of the island press which has been so liberal
m giving much space to the fair.
Maui's Fair at the end of this month will be well worth visiting
and we hope that many Kauai people may find it convenient to take it
in. Maui and Hawaii are taking the lead in establishing the "fair"
spirit in the Islands, and it would not hurt at all if it spread farther
north to Kauai. Garden Island.
It's a good thing for the Tuna Club that its president's fish stories
are not so strenuously contradicted as are the financial reports of H.
Gooding Field. Advertiser.
