Maui's New Judge
To Earl Corson
The Price Of Eggs
Editor Maul News:
The government has fixed a price
for hogs based upon the price of
corn. This Is expressed by the ratio
"thirteen to one", and means that if
a farmer will keep his hog until it
weighs 250 lbs. he will receive for
It thirteen times the value of a bushel
of hard corn more than he would have
received for It If he had sold It when
it weighed 150 lbs. This represents
a sound principle, that of adjusting
the price of the finished product to
the cost of the raw materials requir
ed to produce it.
Why not pply it to eggs? In deter
mining what is a fair price for eggs
why not base it upon the cost of corn?
What would be the result If this were
done? Before the U. S. entered the
war Kula corn was the main grain of
my egg ration. It cost me at Haiku
from $1.80 to $2.00 per 100 lbs. At
that time SO cents a dozen was re
garded as a fair average price for
eggs. This was 25 times the price of
a pound of corn. Today Kula corn
c6sts $4.00 a bag at Haiku, or 4 cents
a pound, and the price of eggs, at
the same ratio that prevailed before
the war, would be 25 times 4 cents,
or $1.00 a dozen. And as a matter of
fact I believe that that would be just
about a fair price for eggs under
present conditions, a price that in
the egg business would correspond to
sugar at ilA cents in the sugar busi
ness. No matter how fair we may believe
it to be we cannot get that price for
our eggs now, and the Haiku Egg
Circle has at no time put the price
above 80 cents. If that price could be
maintained througout this year I
think it would be satisfactory, and en
courage the increase of the flocks. If
it falls much below that there will be
no encouragement to raise young
stock, and the market will be as short
of eggs next fall as ever.

A second prellmary report on the
productivity of string beans and lima
beans grown for canning purposes.
8tring Bean Varieties
Taking the yield of Kentucky
wonder beans (grown ,wlthout sup
porting poles) as 100, the compara
tive yields of the different varieties
was as follows:
Kentucky Wonder 100.
Burpee's Stringless green pod 35.
Improved Golden Wax 37.
Refugee or 1000 to 1. 53.
Davis White Wax 59.
Lima Bean Varieties
Taking the yield of Lewis Improved
Lima at 100, the comparative yields
of the different varieties was as fol
Lewis Improved Lima 100.
Los Angeles Wonder Lima 88.
Henderson's Improved 84.
Burpee's Improved 60.
Ford Hook 49.
Further experiments are under way
to more fully establish the relative
yielding power of those more or less
desirable varieties for canning pur
poses. F. G. K.

With Sunday's Ball
Showers broke in on the baseball
games at Paia Sunday, interfering
with the first contest and necessitat
ing the postponement of the second
when it was about half over. The
crowd was a large one, which made
the situation all the more disappoint
ing. The first game, which was between
the Giants and Beauts, resulted in
victory for the latter by a score of
15 to 11. It was close in places, al
though weather conditions brought
the score up.
The second game, between the Fill
Piino and J. A. C, teams, was frequent
ly interfered with, and finally stopped
entirely, by showers. In the second
innings it was called off to next Sun
day. At that time the J. A. C's. had
rather the best of it.

son was presented with a beautiful
wrist watch and a fountain pen. Ap
propriate speeches were made . ex
pressing appreciation of the faithful
work of Mr. Corson with the class,
and he departed with the best wishes
of all the ladies present.
This class plans to contlnuo their
