OUR GREATEST AX.XII 'lik'S. AT
1 ye Fourth of July should he more than simply n holiday to us this
':ir-jrll should indeed he a day of reeouseerat inn for the whole nation.
marks the anniversary of a declaration of independence from mo
narcliial rule that has, for nearly a century and a half stood as an in
liration to the down-trodden of the whole world.
And now that we are again called upon to draw the sword in de-
of the liberty which we have declared to be lite unalienable herit
of all mankind, it is but proper that we should remember with rever
se, and a sense of awe the splendid courage and marvelous foresight
id faith of the men who laid the foundations of our nation. For this
taith which moved them and steeled their arms is the same that today
nspires us with the righteousness of our course in enlisting in the world
struggle against entrenched despotism.
HAWAII AFTER THE WAR
If Secretary Lane is right it is none too soon to begin If) think of
Hawaii's part after the war is over. What pla.ee shall we occupy in
the nation? What part shall we have in the great activities which will
move the world? ,
The Secretary of the Interior believes that one of our greatest,, if
not our first duty w ill be to act as host, as inn-keeper to the rest of the
world. It is our destiny as he. sees it. v
Secretary Lane is ' not the first who has expressed this opinion.
Hut there havebeeiV few who have been in so good a position to help
make itjr.ome. true.
As Mr. Lane points out, with the end of the war the United
States will find itself with an immense fleet of ships and these ships
will be put to work developing the commerce of the entire world. The
Pacific will experience a boom such as it never knew before. Hawaii
.will be in position where she cannot help reaping full share of the ben
efit. She should not be unprepared.
DID IT PAY?
ARF YOU A SLACKER?
The man (or woman) who tod.iv can work but will not work is a
SLACKER. ' i' '
The man (or woman) who can work 26 days a month but who
works only 20 days, is a SLACKER.
A slacker is one who tries to evade a duty to the nation. He is a
slacker if he tries to escape being a soldier, but he is no less a slacker
if he refuses lo do his full part in the industrial army, which must feed
and clothe not only the fighters but the civilian population of half the
We in Hawaii have taken things pretty easy in the past. We
have taken a day off "to go fishing" pretty much whenever the notion
took us. That was all right before the war. Now it is little less than
We are producing one of the great staple of the world sugar.
Our Allies need every ounce of sugar that can be produced under most
favorable circumstances. Hut our conditions arc not favorable. We
arc very short of worker.-. The government will need as soldiers per
haps one tenth of our workers from the plantations. To make up for
this big loss we are going to put our women and even our children to
Under these conditions can YOU sit around and have others do
your share of the work:
YOU CANNOT UNLESS YOU ARE A SLACKER.
In spite of the slight assistance which Maui and the U. S. Army
were able to give towards making the fair in Honolulu a success, the
management evidently felt obliged to resort lo raffles and other ques
tionable contests, of such character that newspapers dare not publish
the results on pain of being barred if r m the mails. Next time, the
outside islands will have to try a little harder. '
The outrigger club women propose an orf'in.v.ice prohibiting women
wearing men's .yvc.bathing sii'us on the beaches at Waikiki. When
you slop to think about if, w hat makes a bathing suit that is proper for
a man, improper for a woman?
Don't associate with slackers. The man who isn't doing all the
work he can is a slacker.
It cost $35 each to send four young garden contest prize winners
to Honolulu. The amount was paid by the Maui County Fair and Rac
How much will Maui realize on the investment? Time only will
tell. But no one who was privileged to meet those four boys, and to
follow them through their experiences, of last week, will hesitate to
I 'ace the estimate very much above the legal interest rate.
Every one of those boys brought back from Honolulu things that
no amount of money could have bought them, and tilings that no one
can never take from them. They saw Honolulu during fair time. They
vis:ted other boys' gardens. They came in contact with big men in a
way they could never have done but for the garden contest. They
saw, under peculiarly favorable conditions, the big things, the things
worth while in our community life. And probably best of all they were
made to feel that they have a part in these big things for the future.
Every one of those boys today has a broader and more exalted
vision of what his place in the world is to be than he had two weeks
pgo. Every one now appreciates that there are rewards for hard work
and application that are not to be measured in dollars and cents. More
over they have been impressed, at the most impressionable period of
their lives, with the dignity, the worth-whileness of country life, in
stead of being disgusted for all time by the sordid drudgery of farm
work, as have so many country boys the world over.
The men and women of Maui who have given their time and money
towards furthering the children's garden movement should be proud.
They should feel that their efforts have been and will continue to be
fruitful of the highest results, and that they builded better than they
WERE THE SCHOOL COMMISSIOXERS A EVER YOUXG?
No one can blame the senior class of the McKinley high school for
"going on strike" and refusing to go through with the motions of a
commencement in which they will not really be graduated. The deci
sion of the school board to withhold diplomas until the examination
papers of the class can be checked up during the next month or so, is
absolutely unjust to the members of the class. It is also unwarranted,
because the board should have held the examinations earlier or in some
other way arranged to meet the situation.
Commencement Day is the first, and some of us believe the most
important milestone in the average young person's life. He has look
ed forward to the occasion all through his school years as the highest
pinnacle of attainment. Nothing else within his knowledge compares
with it in importance or desirability. And then at the last moment to
have the coveted evidence of attainment, the diploma, withheld through
no fault of his is too much. To ask him to accept a dummy diploma
is an insult.
Is Baseball Appreciated In Wailuku?
KJiior Maui News:
Are the baseliiill fans of Wailuku
ami nearby districts asleep on a Sun
day afternoon or are they packing
their grips to be ready at a moment's
noiice for the cull on July 1st? Let
us hope that they are packing their
K'rips. If they are asleep we wish
they would wake in time to witness
the games at the hall park.
Baseball is the national game of
America and if you are an American
and have p. feeling for the only U. S.
A., then love her national game and
come to the park to cheer us up.
We love the game just as much as
we love the ladies, and to bring a
team from Haiku and l'aia to an au
dience of an empty grandstand is just
like loosing your "Little Lady Love."
Where are the young men and
ladies on a Sunday afternoon that call
themselves baseball fans? We like
to see all of you on the grandstand
cheering for your side. How much
better baseball we could play it only
the "Fair Ones" would be there, not
because wo think we are pretty, but
for the sake of making a hit. You
"Little Fair Ones" have you not a
'Mon Cheri" in the game? Then
come and chee r him up. Or have you
not a boy in the game whom somo
girl has won away from you, then
come to please your little heart to see
him loose the game. Some of you
will say "Ah! whats the use they are
all marriid and there is no ghost of
a chance for me to get one of them
like the girls of old. Now little girl,
we are not all married, and kindly
cheer up for if you are looking for a
romance, honestly you can find one
in a ball game.
The few of you who witnessed last
Sunday's games surely will agree
with us that the game were good.
Why, was not the last inning a thrill
ing one and didn't the center fielder
of the Wailukus save his team from
a defeat. Those of you who think
ami know I hat it was an exciting
moment with your little hearts up
your throats and as a whole that the
game was a good one from start to
fiiish, then go from door to door and
lei! what a good game they missed,
lHit it you think otherwise for the
love of "Sport"- don't knoc k.
Kemember we are bringing our
team from Haiku and Taia at quite a
little bit of expense fop the Fake of
sport and kindly do not let our efforts
be in vain.
A MKM11EU OF THE I'AIA
Maui Man Has Plan
To Settle Homestead
Joseph Leal, boys' probation officer of the juvenile court, who was
on Maui this week, states that there has been a cry marked decrease
in juvenile crime in Honolulu since intoxicants were put under the ban
on Oahu. Improvement in the tenement districts has had something
to do with it also, Mr. Leal says, but the absence of booze is hav ing no
small part in solving the tenement problem. Children arc better cared
for since their parents remain sober, and consequently get into trouble
One of the things in connection with the territorial fair that was
commented upon by almost every visitor from Maui, was the orderli
ness and good humor that prevailed at all times. And all attribute the
phenomenon as due solely to the fact ih.tt Oahu is "dry". Comment un-m-cessaitf
' " ' i
The ideas of a Maui man for seltl
ing the homestead question have been
laid before Secretary Lane in a long
letter from Edwin C. Moore, of Hai
ku. Mr. Moore advocates a !!)!( year
b ase at a small rental, lie would
Imake the main requisite in home-
sit ailing, reside nce upon the land. Th
homesteader might sell his improve
I mi nts as lie desired to any person
eligible to be homesteader,
i In the case of sugar lands Mr.
.Moore would have the homesteaders
acquire Lille to the null through a co
operative association, the property
being secured by bonds until paid for
in, smail instalments from the profits
fiom, the cane ground. The slock in
il mill would vest in the land, and
the homesteader would be required
tS pledge at least half of his land for
in- giving the association authority
, care for and market the crop in
