LUMBER SCHOONER LATE
Some unoas'ness is felt for the
safety of the lumber schooner Wawo
no cming from the Sound. She is
now 42 days out and nothing has been
heard of her since sailing. En
couragement is felt, however, from
the fact that the Meyer, which got in
a few days ago, also made a very long
passage, leaving the coast port about
the same time.
A beautiful colored Chr.stmas
cover, holiday pictures and features
had been planned for this issue of
the Maui News. Owing to the freight
congestion on the ma'nland, however,
the material reached San Francisco
three weeks behind lime and was dis
charged from the steamer at Hono
lulu too late to catch the Mauan Kca

little fellows were properly cared for.
There were three main features of
the program: First, the music by the
Salvation Army hand; second, the ad
dress by Mr. W. F. Crockett, and
third, Santa Claus and the distribu
tion of presents. Ensign Puck, of
the Salavtion Army, had charge of the
arrangement of the program, while

after the tree part of it. A corps of
assistants also lorn valuable aid. The
features were as follows:

countries where the people speak the
language and the remainder from
other countries of the world. Fifty-
eight different nations are represent

scattered throughout the Fnited
In great educational centres the
work is well organized for fore'gners.
The importance of this work can
quickly be realized when the fact is
considered that a large number of the
foreign students are from royal fami
lies in their own countries, often from
families of great wealth, or have been
specially sent to America, because of
their connections with the govern
ments cf the'.r own countries.
The Japanese students sent from
the government imist have taught
from 2 to 5 years in Japan before
they can go to America for study.
From China they come largely from
the Indemnity Fund.
These foreign students are an im
portant factor in spreading the fund-
imentals of the democratic spirit of
America. Dr. Kato asserted that
America is today leading in the edu
cation of the world.
These foreign students will inter

can, because tney Know tneir own
people better than any foreigner can,

International Committee is to reach
these students religiously. They
will also be a mighty factor in the
stahlishment of international peace.

butions that these foreign students
make to American lite by broadening

were doing to assist, tlie loreign stu

their communities. Hp spoke especi
ally of the great amount of helpful
ness shown by the load'tig people of
the comnmniilies by the cordial recep
tion given foreign students. He al
so spoke of the fact that these stu
dents were taken in small groups
through the great industrial centres
and the 'social service foundations,
such as Hull House.
At some length he spoke of the dis
tinctive religious work that was be
ing done for these students through
IHble classes and discussion clubs,
and through personal interviews. He
spoke particularly of the great stu
dent gathering In summer conferences
at IjiUc Geneva and Northfield.
Dr. Kato has just spent 80 days in
Japan where he travelled 7,000 miles,
and spoke in 25 institutions, ijn all to

Red Cross Drive Is
A Wonderful Success
(Continued from Tage One.)
Ilawa'ians and PortURiiese have, as
well, not been lackliiK In interest and
support to the drive. They are not
only joiniiiK. but nre lending valuable
help to the committees and workers.
Important help has also come from
the Chinese, Filipinos and other na
tionalities on the island.
It is hoped that a lull list of the
names of the workers can be publish
ed next week. So far, only the Psts
of Wailuku and parts of central Maui
are available, but in a few days those
of liana, Molokai and other" distant
districts will be in hand.
Chairman Harold Itice, of the Ken
oral committee, felt highly pleased
this morning with the results so far.
He realizes that, the big total for the
first three days is made up largely of
memberships easiest to get, and that
the really hard work is just begin
ning. He is tightening his lines to
day, to use a military term; encourag
ing addition of more workers, and
hopes that the 3,300 extra names
needed to bring Maui's total up to
the high mark of 11,000 may be on the
roll before Monday night.
This Is tlie most extenslvelv and
carefully planned lied Cross campaign
ever pulled oil on Mani, and the pre
cision witli which it is being carried
out is interesting to observe.
The general committee in charge
consists of: Harold Rico, manager;
D. C. Lindsay, secretary. Clement
Crowell, Wailuku; W. L. Decota, I-i-haiana;
(1. P. Cooke, Molokai; C. C.
Campbell, Puunene; Wm. Walsh, Ka
hului; I). Sloggett, Paia; W. A. Raid
win, Haiku; Itobort von Tompsky,
Kula; ('has. Ilailoy, liana and W. F.
Pogue, lluelo and Keanae.
It was intended that 25,000 new
mi mbers should be added to the roll
of the Red Cross in the Hawaiian Is
lands during the drive. With Ha
waii and Oahu's quota of 17,000 and
-Maui's total of 7,776 the mark was
very nearly reached by those three
islands alone at the end of yesterday.
Kauai has not yet been heard from.
It seems now safe to predict that, in
place of 25,000 the grand total for
the Territory will be 35,000 or 40,000.
Tlr.s will he very cheering news to
tlie national administrators of the
campaign and to the cause for which
it was undertaken.
Happenings Of Week
On The Lahaina Side
(Continued from Tage One.)
Kamaainas of Lahaina were shock
ed, last week, to hear of the death on
Nov. 20th. in Irvington, California, of
Mrs. Horner and also of her son, Mr.
C. Frederick Horner, who died in
Oakland on the fifth of this month.
Mrs. Horner was the widow of the
late William Y. Horner, at one time
a member of the Hawaiian Senate.
The Horner family lived in the house
now occupied by Mr. Weinzheimer,
the plantation manager. Mrs. Horner
and her daughters sold their home
about twelve years ago and moved to
Irvington, California. Mrs. Horner,
at the time of her death was eighty
live years of age. Mr. C. Frederick
Horner was for several years manager
of the Pioneer plantation. About
twenty years ago he left Maui and
settled in Oakland, California, where,
for some years he was the assessor
of Alameda County. His wife, who
survives him, is a sister of Mr. Wm.
L. Decoto, of Lahaina. It was with
sincere regret that their many Maui
friends learned of the passing of the
mother and son, both of whom were
respected and loved by so many here.
Miss Claire Stevenson, formerly on
the faculty of the Kamehameha III
school, Lahaina, hut now of the Nor
mal school, Honolulu, is spending the
Xmas vacation with her sister, Mrs.
J. Allen Wilson, nt Lahainaluna.
