Maui Chamber Votes
Down German Course
Emphatic Approval To School Board
Action Is Voiced Believes Hun
Language Will Be Dead After War
Pupils Must Make Best Sacrifice
The Maui chamber of commerce
does rot believe that German should
be taught in the territorial high
schools under any circumstances. In
earnest of this it yesterday afternoon
turned down a resolution calling upon
the board of public instruction to re
consider its action in banishing the
Hun language by the decisive vote of
IS to 4.
The vote followed a lively half
hour's debate, in which it was urged
that the hoard was doing an unjust ice
to pupils who have heretofore been
studying German, and must perforce
now lose the credits which the wort
already done should give in entering
colleges. In this connection another
motion was adopted to have the
school department asked to take steps
looking to saving the children as
much hardship as possible.
The Lone Four
The four who believe the German
language should not be thrown out of
the high schools were I). II. Case
Will. J. Cooper, Dr. V. D. Baldwin
and W. O. Aiken.
Mr. Case introduced the motion
which started the ball rolling. In
justice to pupils was his chief nrgu
ment. He also scouted the idea ad
vanced by D. C. Lindsay, the Maui
member of the school board, that the
German language would become
dead language after the war.
Dr. Baldwin argued that the study
of German would continue to be im
portant on account of the vast amount
of scientific information of various
kinds stored up in German books and
The other speakers for Ihe motion
held that the school board had no
right to deny any kind of instruction
demanded bv students, provided n
did not benefit the enemy or he In
jurious to our own nation; that wheth
er or not the language should be ex
tensively spoken after the war made
no difference if sufficient pupils
above the primary grade wished to
study it to make the employment of
instructors worth while, they should
not be denied.
Public Would Rebel
D. C. Lindsay declared that the
board of education could not have
given a German course 'in the Hono
lulu schools had it wanted to, because
the county supervisors had refused
to permit the teaching of it in the
buildings controled by the county. He
also asserted that the public would
rebel against paying for teachers to
Island Botanist To
Go Soon To Japan
J. F. Rock Accepts Call Of Japanese
University Is Making Last Visit
To Maui Had Hoped To Enter
Joseph F. Rock, botanist on the
faculty of the College of Hawaii, is
paying his farewell visit to Maui, as
lie lias accepted a position on the
faculty of the Tokio University, Ja
pan, and will leave very shortly for
his new post.
Mr. Rock, who has been in the ter
lilory for over 10 years, has done
much original work in studying and
e'arsifying the flora of the islands.
He has discovered a large number of
new plants during his almost con
stant search over the various islands
of the grrup. On the present trip, on
which he is accompanied by a young
Japanese student of the College of
Hawaii, lie sp. nt several days cn Ha

army service in the intelligence de
partment, as he in a fluent linguist
and is also familiar with the customs
of ninny of the European countries,
but objections raised by individauls
In Honolulu on account of his Aus
trian birth caused him to withdraw
his application. He had been most
highly recommended by leading offi
cials of the territcry, and had a let
ter from Secretary Lane in his behalf.
Disappointment over this matter is
largely responsible for his acceptance
of the offer from Japan. Hi3 leaving
the Islands will be the cause of re

Fair For Next Year
Suggestion That 2ad Territorial Fair
Be Held On Maui Will Be rushed
Haiku Farmers Favor Annual Coun
Acting upon communications from
the Honolulu chamber of commerce
and from R. J. Borden, of the Terri
torial Fair Committee, the Maui
chamber of commerce yesterday went
on record as favoring the plans for
holding the second territorial fair
sometime during the year 1919. There
was some discussion before this ac
tion was taken, however, it being
represented that the Haiku Farmers'
Association had gone on record as op
posing an annual fair in Honolulu and
as favoring the holding of yearly
county fairs throughout the territory.
Will. J. Cooper, who spoke for the
Haiku association, urged against the
annual Honolulu fair on grounds that
comparatively few Maui people could
!'ee it and that it was likely to sutler
from lack of interest from this fact.
U11 the oilier hand the first Maui
county fair had brought the entire
people of Maui together as nothing
'iad done before or since, and had
1 roved that ruch a fair could never
tie anything but a huge success.
1ay Hold 3ig Fair On Maui
President Harold W. Rice stated
iliai there was a move on foot to have
he r.cxl territorial fair held on Maui
lie believed such a plan would be
fea-ihlo end would go far towards
coping 1 lie people interested.

Washington Says Link
Rice Action Illegal
What Washington thinks of Link
MeCanlless' stand on the rice ques
tion is contained in a letter just re
ceived by Food Administrator Child.
The letter follows:
Washington, August 14.
'Mr. J. F. Child, U. S. Food
Honolulu, T. H.
"Dear Sir: This much-delayed ans
wer to your letter of May 14, concern
ing sale of rice by Mr. McCandlesn,
will probably reach you too late to be
of any great value.
However, two things seem to be
clear First, Mr. McCnndless is not
ubject to license under the Food
Control Act; and second, his charg
ing unreasonable prices for rice is un
lawful under the act, even though no
specific penalty is provided.
Without attempting at this dis-
ar.ee to go into the case in detail,
it is of course clear that any profiteer
ing is to be condemned, whether by
; grower of rice or by a retailer; and
that a sale at exorbitant prices can
not be excused by the fact that rice
was being imported Into Hawaii and
old at higher prices.
During the coming year it is to he

A Wailuku baseball team, with Bal

game at Lahaina, last Sunday, by a
score of 7 to 6. As a result the Wai

hope of redeeming themselves.
The game latst Sunday is declared
to have been one of the most enthus

their eyes. He was well supported
by Kahuku back of the plate. .
It was not until the third inning
that Wailuku began to wake up, and
it was then too late. Lahaina had al

them from scoring any more.
