Cutting Down Travel
Coming from E. D. Tenney, presi
dent of Castle & Cooke, agents for
the Mat son Navigation Company, the
proposal for temporarily stopping the
work of the Hawaiian Promotion Com
mittee will get what It has deserved
for some time, the serious considera
tion of the community. It goes with
out saying that this step means a
heavy loss to this and the other com
munities of the Islands, but it Is a
question in the minds of a good many
of us, whether it should not have
been taken some months ago. Volun
tarily undertaken by the people of
Hawaii themselves such a move would
come with far more grace and carry
more convincing evidence of our will
ingness to make any necessary sacri
fice than could be the case were the
government to issue a mandate that
would cut off our tourist traffic with
out consulting our wishes in the mat
ter. We hnve been fortunate In these
Blessed Isles more fortunate than
we perhaps have deserved. The war
has held off from us for a long time,
while all the rest of the world has
been suffering. We alone of Amer
icans have been able to go alone the
. Quiet tenor of our ways without
much consideration of the fact that
the destiny of the human race is be
ing battled for on a score of bloody
The . sacrifices that we are called
upon to make are merely those of the
pocket, and pitfully small when com
pared with tboBe of the vast bulk of
our fellow countrymen and the rest
of mankind. Let s therefore make
them cheerfully. If, as Mr. Tenney
says, the government wants us to cut
down passenger traffic to Hawaii dur-

UNION SUNDAY SCHOOL
Following was the annual report of
the Wailuku Union Sunday School:
The Wailuku Union Sunday School
has had a good year, though not
so good as it would have been if
whooping-coush had not so seriounly
interfered. The average attendance
has been 28, which is proportionately
better than last year, considering the
disadvantages the school has been
under. For example
Eighteen pupils have left the Sun
day School, 4 going away to school,
9 having moved away, and 5, four of
whom were teachers, leaving for other
reasons. To fill these places 8 new
pupils have been received, still leav
ing the Sunday School roll with 44
instead of last year's 54. Under the
circumstances the Sunday School has
done very well indeed to maintain
such a good attendance, and average
The total offerings for the year
have been $G7.72 including the
birthday offering of $4.86. This sum
has been devoted to the running ex
penses of the Sunday School but it is
hoped this year to work out a budget
including various benevolences.
Regarding the activities of the Sun
day School, outside of the regular
Sunday sessions several clubs have
been formed. The first of these is the
Rain or Shine Club. This has been
formed to remedy the idea on the
part of some of the Sunday School
that there is no session on rainy
Sundays. According to the ruling of

The usual special days have been
celebrated during the year. These
were Easter, Children's Day, the
Annual Picnic, Thanksgiving and
Christmas. All of these ocassions
were happy ones for those participating.
A great deal of credit and thanks
again this: "Has the Lord built this
house?" I look back and remember
the gathering that first Sunday night
of November 190". holdine the first
service in the opening of a church
that had been closed for many years.
and the repeated remarks of some.
"That church won't stay open six
months". I have seen how it has
stayed open over twelve years and I
have felt the steady deepening of
the life of the people. I have come to
this conclusion, that the Lord did
build here his spiritual temple.
The entering into this new house
of worship six years ago this month
was a joyous time for all of us. It
was an anxious time for me as the
minister, for the new duties and the
greater responsibility of leading the
church were heavier than ever upon
me. The services were well attend
ed. I have for the last three years
kept a close record of attendance.
The audiences for the year just past
have been as good In the average as
any year since we entered the new
church, except for a brief period
we had very large numbers present.
The faithfulness of so many in egu
larly attending the church service has
been a source of great encouragement
and the constant words of good cheer
spoken to me so often have greatly
helped. I am bold enough to say that
I have the sincerest conviction that
in the past year particularly, the
Lord s hand in building our spiritual
house has been greatly in evidence.
There has been a deepening on the
part of many of their experience with

homes has become a real part of at
tempt to reach God. The children in
many homes have been read to from
the Bible, and I think their mothers,
and in some cases their fathers, have
been careful in developing the prayer
life of I heir children.
I have been much pleased to note
that the attendance at the communion
services is much larger than in any
year previous and more children have
been brought to the consecration, or
baptism services than in any previous
It is a matter of deep gratitude that
the debt on the church building has
been absolutely cleared off. These
amounts were promised at the time
of the Fiftieth Anniversary, but the
collections were not completed in
1917. This handicap has now been
removed. Also the Income of the
church in regular offerings has been
larger than ever and more members
have taken sets of offering en
velopes. By far the larger proportion
of the income this year has come
through systematic giving.
The special seasons of the church
life were a very great joy, particul
arly the co-operation connected with
the community Christmas Tree.
The faithful and beautiful spirit
that prompted the organization, on
the part of the young people, of the
choir has been greatly appreciated by
the minister and all those who unite
in worship here. The study of the
Bible by a little group before church,
the special prayer service on Good
Friday, the co-operation and spirit of
unity so apparent In the meetings of
he standing committee and the good
responses for the financial support
of missions have all shown a deenea-
ing of the heart life of our church.
The preaching of Rev. Messrs.
Charles F. Dole, Win. H. Fry, J. II.
Williams, W. B. Coale, Frank T.
Scudder and Henry P. Judd, and of
Colonel Dubbin, the singing of the
Molokai Choir, brought much help
and inspiration to us all.
The year before us should nulcken
and deepen the spirit of our church.
In many ways it will be the most
trying year of our work together be
cause of the world upheaval. The
world is facing Itself as never before
since Christ came. Let us do our
share by allowing the Master Builder
of the Universe build our individual
lives and our church life with the full
indwelling of His spirit.
