Fancy Dress Ball Is
To Be New Year Event
Taking an early initiative Chair
man Joe Meinecke of the entertain
ment committee of the Fair and Rac
ing Association has made application
for the Territorial Building on New
Year's eve and his committee will
stage a masquerade or fancy dress
ball on that date. This is a step to
ward making a masked ball an an
nual event on Maui.
Last year's New Year's Eve dance
took the form of a fancy dress affair
and was one of the most successful
and enjoyable social events ever held
"here. At that time It was suggested
that a dance of that type should be
made a fixture in the Maul social cal
endar, and one held annually. Mr.
Meinecke has kept the suggestion in
mind, taken no chance of any one get
ting ahead of him and has secured the
building for his committee on New
Year's eve. He gives four and a half
'months notice of the preemption of
the date and of the hall.

Meets With Opposition
From Sugar Industry
Numbers of persons connected with
the sugar Industry are not in accord
with those who are advocating a cam
paign for the extermination of the
mongoose through the offering of
payments for their heads and of speci
al prizes for those who bring in the
largest number of heads, recently
there was a conference in Honolulu
on the subject attended by a number
of those who are connected with the
H. S. P. A., and in a Honolulu paper,
II. P. Agee is quoted as saying:
"While the mongoose is undoubt
edly an enemy of game birds, it is
likewise an enemy of insects, rats and
mice," asserts H. P. Agee, director of
the station. "Many people feel that
the mongoose has failed as an enemy
of the rat, but the records, both in
Hawaii and Jamaica, indicate that
the rats have been reduced to an ap
preciable extent by the mongoose.
Caution is Advised
"We would advise against the use
of public funds in efforts to reduce
the mongoose. The state of Penn
sylvania spent thousands and thou
sands of dollars to exterminate the
owls and hawks, and when their ef
fort began to show results it was ob
served that the rats and mice had in
creased to such an alarming extent
that protective measures had to be
passed in behalf of the owls and
"The danger here, however, is not
that the mongoose will be eradicated.
The chance of reducing it to any con
siderable extent appears to us as a
remote possibility. But in the mean
time a great deal of the taxpayers'
money may be spent."
"The opinion of the experiment sta
tion, however, is not that the animal
should be protected.
"We feel that the public should be
free to take such steps as may be
justified toward reducing it locally
in various vicinities," Mr. Agee con
tinued. "We believe, though, that,
all such endeavors will be of tempor
ary and minor effectiveness."
Evidence in favor of the mongoose
may be seen today on Kauai, Mr.
Agee points out. The mongoose has
not been introduced on that Island,
and the rat menace is in general
more serious there than It is with
the other islands of Hawaii.
The mongoose was introduced from
India about 25 years ago. Three
years after this an article In the
Planters' Monthly, said In part:
"There is no doubt that the mon
goose has saved the planters of Ha
makua thousand of dollars. In form
er years It was no uncommon thing
to see one-fourth, and even one-half,
of the cane left on the fields, the rats
having rendered that portion unfit for
grinding by eating the stalks near
the ground and causing them to rot
"One planter said: (They complain
about the mongose eating chickens,
but the little beggars save me thou
sands of dollars. Besides, It Is only
a few chickens they eat. I do not be
lieve they destroy as many as the
rats used to."'
The experiment station entomol
ogists have made a study of the
habits of the mongosoe and have re
potred that It is very destructive to
"Among the Insects which It Is
proved that the mongoose eats are
adult cane borers, adults and grubs
of the Japanese beetless, cockroaches
of different kinds, molecrickets, grass
hoppers, earwigs and ants, thus show
ing a catholic taste In Its insect diet."

Some concerns think it economy to send orders to Hono
lulu or to the mainland when they could be filled as well or better
at home. They figure they save a few cents on the dollar by doing'
so and grasp at the nickel in sight.
Every dollar spent with Maui concerns passes from hand
to hand, in wages, to the store, to the bank and out again into cir
culation, back to the concern that sent it out, again to be sent forth
on its rounds. The profits accruing from the dollar kept in home
circulation are many times larger than the small saving in the dol
lar sent away.
