THE MAUI NEWS, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 5, 1917.
Ladies To Help
Tlint (hp wonion of Kilo are, in pat
r;otism, second (o none In the whole
United States, 1ms been demonstrated
on so many oceassions that It is un
necessary to nsain state the fact. But
their offer yesterday to assist in the
work of the local draft hoard must be
eulogized. Ililo Tribune.
Text Books To Order
It seems that l'orto Ilico lias dis
covered, even as wp have, that New
England Text Hooks with oak trees,
and robins, and runcible spoons are
not just suited to tin; requirements
and capacities of the little l'orto Me
ans; so they are noin.n to get up their
own books that will suit their own
If a single small island like l'orto
Ilico.- an island just cutting its eye
teeth, in mallei's of education, has the
intelligence and initiative to do that,
surely we here in Hawaii might at
any rale consider similar action.
It might be interesting for us to
keep in touch with their efforts in Ibis
line and see what they turn out. It
might also he well for us to familiarize
ourselves with the efforts that have
been made in the Philippines, where
we understand, they have felt the
same need and have taken measures
to meet it. Garden Island.
Draft And Business
When the final draft is made in
Hawaii it will he found that many
business houses and plantations are
denuded of otlieo and other help.
Some houses have a large number of
men who are eligible for the draft
and their positions will have to be
taken by other men who have not to
go to the front. This will hamper
business a lot, for men cannot be
broken into strange jobs in a day.
In Honolulu some of the business
firms are wondering where they will
get off when the draft takes their
men. One shipping firm in the capital
city has six eligible men and if, by
any chance, they all are drawn, a
serious situation will arise.
In Hilo there are many firms
which have in their employ a num
ber of men within the prescribed
ages and the bosses are wondering
what will happen if two or three of
their men are drafted. Of course it
may happen that while one firm may
lose several men another concern may
not have one employee drafted at
this time. Subsequent drafts may take
more men, but, gradually arrange
ments will, without doubt, be made to
fill the vacancies. At any rate it is all
for Uncle Sam and everybody, doubt
less, feels that nothing matters as long
as the war is won Hawaii Herald.
The School Teachers' Complaint
Relative to the complaint published
in the Post in yesterday's issue, it is
timely to say that this matter of pro
viding for the comforts of the teach
ers, has been one of considerable dis
cussion thruout the Islands forthe past
ten years, an dtoday is apparently no
nearer to a satisfactory solution than
at the time when the question was
first brought up.
It has been suggested that the
county provide all teachers' cottages
with furniture and cooking utensils,
the same to be used by succeeding
teachers. That this would be agree
able and a great convenience was as
certained at one tune thru canvassing
the teaching staff of the Territory.
This being the case .teachers on reach
ing Honolulu from the States could
be told that bed linen and towels
would be all that they should require
to purchase to enable them to start
right in to keeping house in fairly
It would be interesting for any who
have never visited the average teach
ers' cottage, to do so. It would be a
revelation to the average woman if
she could but see the difficulties that
beset the teacher who arrives a
stranger and who must resort to all
sorts of means to procure the where
withal with which to be in the least
degree comfortable. The average
teacher's cottage is but a stopping
place. They cannot entertain friends
because of the scantily furnished and
uninviting quarters in which circum
stances force them to live. Nor does
the salary, nor the time spent in the
position, warrant the expenditure of
money for more elaborate fixtures.
Thus do we have in a nutshell, the
entire grievance of the malihini teach
er ,and none can say but what the
grievance is certainly a just one. It
is a situation that should at once ap
peal to the sympathy of the more
fortunate ones who cannot but realize
the unsatisfactory condition of affairs.
I Open Forum
As To Our "Coa6t" Teachers
Editor Maui News:
"Kamaaina's" letter in (he Maui
News should awaken public thought
to the teachers' welfare
They are not exceptional cases
cted by "Kamaaina," indeed such re
ceptions have been the rule since Mr.
Kinney began importing California
graduates by the boat load in order
to thoroughly discipline, by fear, our
home teachers to a proper spirit of
humility. I grant (hat some of these
imported teachers are needed. Slill
we have many home folk quite com
petent to fill most of these positions
and are kepi out of what should justly
be (heirs, without good reason.
Again, it seems a pity thai a mere
mature class of teachers is not sought
for on the mainland, as the teacher's
work here is that of a civilizer as well
lis an Instructor. Problems of mind,
body and spirit call for her daily, short
at (eiilion. She is the rnosl important
pet son in the needs of Hawaii today
and should be heartily welcomed,
taken care of and encouraged to abide
long among them by every individual
in the community in which she
IIuwuU can afford to be very gener
ous to her teachers, even to supplying
furnished collages; but the mean, pet
ty, tyranical policy of their present
administrators is doing much to dis
gust the abler teachers, and if it con
tinues our schools will be given over
You can't keep high-class teachers
in a country where you overload them
to the breaking point Willi non-essi nli
als, treat them as machines and filch
portions of their slender salaries on
every possible pretext. It is time for
(ho communities to awake to the
teachers' importance and needs and
stand by them.
Thanking you for space, I am,

Then And Now
The following story, which may
easily be applied on Maui in these un
usual times, appeared in a trade journ
al received by Hon. John J. Walsh,
general manager of Kahului Store,
and is too good to withhold:
"Recently a Missouri farmer asked
the pr!,ce of a buggy he wished to
purchase and rose in wrath when In
formed the price was $90, whereas
twenty years ago the same style could
have been bought for $60. The mer
chant looked over his books and
discovered that he had sold the buggy
mentioned in 1897 for the price of 300
bushels of corn. In turn he offered lo
give the farmer the following articles
in his stock for 3U0 bushels of corn:
A buggy at ?90
A farm wagon at 73
A suit of clothes at -0
A dress at 20
A baby dress at 5
A baby crib at 5
A box of cigars at 3
Sugar at 10
Lubricating oil 13
"This is offered to show the great
value of farm products and Ihe trem
endous purchasing power of the farm
er." Maui Music Club
