Puunene School To
Try Garden Contest
Principal Brown Tells Of Enthusiasm
In His School And Makes Some
flood Suggestions To Committee
In Charge Of Work
Puunene, Maul. T. H.. May 15. 1917.
EdUor, Maul News.
You may be interested to know that
the pupils of the Puunene School are
taking a lively interest in the graden
contest that ia being promoted by the
Maul County Fair and Racing Associ
ation. The generous prizes offered In
this contest are attracting the atten
tion of the pupils and holding them
spell bound. They see In the trip to
Honolulu a chance of a life time.
Gardening activity is now at a very
great disadvantage in comparsion
with conditions that existed a few
weeks ago. The warm weather is a
decided hindrance to the natural In
clination of the pupils to exert them
selves physically. It also makes
plants harder to Btart and Increases
insect pests. But we trust that we
may overcome all obstacles and make
a creditable showing in the contest.
Our school garden work during the
year has been a good preparation for
this new struggle. We have kept
careful records of our successes and
failures and these will be of great ad
vantage to our pupils in planting crops
for the new undertaking. We have
learned to raise such produce as the
people want to buy. An hour before
school, nearly every school day, our
boys start from our garden with a cart
load of our produce to be sold in the
neighborhood. This work of selling
vegetables Is continued on Saturdays
as well as on school days. I am send
ing you two pictures of our salemen
with their cart loads of produce as
they appeared on successive Saturday
mornings Just as they were starttog

State Forests with a total of over
3,600,000 acres have been established
in thirteen States. Of these New
York has the largest forests, which
comprise 1,826,000 acres; Pennsylvan

Wisconsin third with 400,000 acres.
to sell vegetables.
Our sales for this season have
amount to $58.25. This has a greate
significance than might at first appear.
The greatest value connected with it
is its influence on the education of the
pupils. The activity Is purely practi
cal and It Is an abrupt departure from
the theoretical which always been one
of the chief faults of our school sys
tem and It still remains such. In ad
dition to the practical vocational train
ing provided by this department of
our BChool, we are doing our mite In
feeding the community by selling
clean, wholesome vegetables at about
half the price charged by professional
gardeners. We are also teaching the
pupils to produce vegetables and en-
Joy the enterprise. Then, too, we
have given pupils large quantities of
vegetables for their own use.
We are laboring under the diffeulty,
however, of not having a well arrang
ed set of rules and regulations cover
ing the competition. We should know
at the earliest possible a moment Just
what elements the Judges will take in
to consideration in granting us credit.
A game of any kind cannot be played
without rules. The rules should be
provided before the game is called.
In order to make sure of lasting
benefits from this series of experlr
ments, a careful system of records
should be required. Gardeners of the
future should be able to learn from
our experience Just when to plant the
different kinds of seeds In the differ
ent localities to get the best results.
The method of tillage, application of
fertilizers, drainage, irrigation, vari
eties of each kind of vegetable, etc.,
should enter into this record. Such
a record should not be so Intricate or
difficult as to deaden the interest
or overtax the abilities of the chil
dren. But it can bo very simple and
at tha same time very useful. As an
aid in this connection, I have mimeo
graphed a chart, a copy of which I
enclose. This chart was gotten out
hurriedly and can doubtless be much
Improved but I hopo that it is a step
in tho right direction and that it will
lead to something better.
