THE MAUI NEWS, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 24, 1916.
1 1 Care Taken In
MAUI AND THE COUNTY FAIR
Maui county's first annual fair, to bo
hold at Wailuku on November SO,
December 1 and 2, is the subject of a
slxteen-pnse special section printed
with today's paper.
In looking over these pages, filled
not only with news of the coming fair,
but with articles and photographs
covering a wide range of Maul sub
jects, the reader Is struck forcibly
with the far-reaching extent to which
the Valley Isle has developed the theo
ry of community cooperation. Perhaps
nowhere else in the territory Is this
ideal so fully exemplified.
It Is not confined to the towns, to
any one class of people, or or to any
one section of this large and prosper
ous island. Over the whole extent of
one of the most populous and busiest
parts of the territory there hovers
the spirit of community "teamwork."
The man of large affairs on Maui rec
ognizes that he Is giving the best re
turn for what fortune has done for
him If he shares his prosperity with
the laborers in h's employ and the
less fortunate neighbors near his
Maul Is often referred to as the is
land of model plantations. The rea
son Is not wholly one of mechanical
efficiency. It is largely in the extra
ordinary degree to which the planta
tion managements have developed the
health, comfort, recreat'pn, whole
some enjoyment of their employes
and of the employes of allied busi
nesses. All of this is done without the least
bit of selfconscious cant. The plan
tation men assume no credit for it.
They do it as part of their everyday
work and the everyday work of the
Maui plantation man is a man-sized
Job. They do it because they believe
in fair treatment of employes, and
year bv year they have gone further
along the road of definite promotion
of helpful community activities.
Maui has always been noted for
this ability to "pull together" on m
portant matters. No more striking
example of team-work has been given
the territory than the manner in
which the Valley Islanders rose to the
grave emergency of last winter when
a sudden flood swept down Iao Valley
and caused the loss of a number or
pr, inree destruction of pro
perty. The promptitude, quickness
of thought and ab'lity to grapple with
new nrobems were no less rVi
than the common desire to help the
unfortunate survivors who had been
bereft of homes and often of families.
Thnt same ouality of rapid and con
certed action has been demonstrated
in the preparations for the first ann
ual fair. Maul leaders have under
taken this fair with the finest kind of
spirit. They will make it an unques
Aside from articles concerning the
coming fair, the special Maui section
todnv deals somewhat with the tour
1st possibilities of th's island of many
beautties and attractions. The tour
ist possibilities are almost limitless.
Until very recently, there was little
sentiment on the island In favor of
seeking tourists, but this has largerly
changed. With the development of
adequate hotel facilities, Maui can
care for the traveler as well as any
island in the group, and through all
the territory there, has run an
awaken'ns appreciation of the value
of the tourist trade, in which the
Valley Isle now shares. Signs Indi
cate that henceforward Maui will
make a strong bid for tourist patron
age, with corresponding activities or
her own part to develop things for
the tour'st to do.
The County Fair offers an unusual
opportunity for the people of the
other Islands to visit Maui. The fair
itself will assemble more exhibits
displaying the industries and resour
ces of the Island than anything pre
vious in island history. Without
doubt it will be the "biggest ever."
And the program is well filled with
amusement and recreation features.
Maul will offer a "good show" and
pledge a "good time." Star Bulletin.
The annual union Thanksgiving
service will be held. In the Church of
the Good Shepherd on Thanksgiving
Day, Thursday, November 30, in the
morning, at 10:30 o'clock. There will
be special music by the choir. The

ducted by the Rector, assisted by the
Rev. R. B. Dodge. The public is very
cordially invited to unite with the
congregation in this hour of Thanksgiving.
The Board of Supervisors of the

day the 8th day of December, 1916,
at 2:00 P. M. for the construction of
a sand fill at Ukumehame, Lahaina

Special care is being taken in the
new school inspection work of the
Board of Health in Honolulu to de
tect incipient tuberculosis among the
ch'ldren and the extra precautions, it
is hoped, will soon be applied to
every island. This system this year
has been extended from Honolulu
proper to the entire island of Oahu.
On Kauai the tuberculosis nurse at
tended all the school examinations
pointing out to the physician the
children from tuberculosis famillesand
giving him other Information that
would help him detect the disease.
This part of the tuberculosis cam
paign is the outgrouth of work start
ed several years ago, when prelimin
ary surveys showed that a great deal
of consumption could be expected in
Hawa'Jan schools. Among a number
of suspects then taken under super
vision some have improved to such an
extent that they were returnd to
school"this year, but in some other
cases It was necessary to send the lit
tle patients to sanitariums.
The anti-tuberculosis bureau is
working on the accepted theory of the
increased prospect of Infection in
children over adults. Some hold the
theory that all consumption starts in
the child and only developes in later
years. The bureau does not Ignore
this possibility and takes all precau
tions. It has issued this week a special
warning to parents and teachers to
observe more carefully the children
under their charge and to remember
that asusplcious symptom in a child is
more suspicious than in an adult. It
urges every one to take no chances
and have delicate children frequently
examined for the disease.
C. E. Mayne, special representative
of E. O. Hall & Son, came over in the
the Maul County Fair. This is Mr.
Claudlne, to take charge of the exhi
bit which his firm are going to show at
Mayne's first visit to the Island of
Maui, and he hopes to become ac
quainted with all the Maui people as
well as aquainted with all their spe
cial wants. Mr. Mayne is a "live wire"
and hopes to get together an exhibit
that will he of interest to all those
who may visit the fair.
Thanksgiving evening, Thursday,
November 30th, there will be a great
Yamayama dance on the dance pavi
llion in the fair grounds. It Is the
desire of the management that all
who can possibly do so appear In
During the course of the evening
there will be two special dance con
tests, from which It is hoped that
much merriment will be derived.
One of these is called the "Lucky
Circle" dance, and is operated In the
A number of circles are placed on
the floor, and those entering the con
test endeavor to stand in a circle
when the music stops. Those who
are unable to do so, are
requested to leave the floor. The
music begins again, two or three
circles are eliminated and when the
music stops the contestants run for
circles. Those unable to secure one
are eliminated from the contest. As
the number of contestants decrease,
the number of circles eliminated at
one time are also decreased, until one
circle is erased at a time. The last
two couples remaining on the floor
will be awarded suitable prizes. The
excitement that this contest causes
is shared by the spectators around
the floor as well as by those particip
ating. The other contest is called the
"Popularity Contest," and works in
the following manner:
Those entering the contest will
hand their names to the Judges on the
floor and will receive a number, which
Is pinned on the back of the gentle
man. During the course of the dance
the spectators around the floor ap
plaud the dancers they think are the
best. This applause guides the Judges
in deciding those couples that shall
stay on the floor. The music stops
at a signal from the Judges, who call
the numbers of those to continue in
This Is done until the contest sim
mers down to the couple the specta
tors applaud the most. In this dance
the Judges act merely according to
the applause given the various con
testants, and the excitement runs
high when two or three competitors
each have an equal amount of app
lause, and the following of each are
determined to have their couple win.
There will also be two prizes awarded
for the winner and second in this contest.
