Lahaina vs Kahului Tomorrow
I PLENTY EXCITEMENT!
The football season on Maui is al
most pan. But there will be plenty
of excitement on the gridhon before
the final curtain is rung down. The
last game of the islands championship
series, although the title lias a'ready
been taken by the undefeated Paia
squad, will be played between the La
haina and Kahului teams on the La
haina Athletic Field tomorrow after
noon at half past two.
Regardless of the championship be
ing won, considerable interest centers
around tho coming gamo because of
the existing 'eternal triangle.' Should
the Buffanblu' bo able to deliver the
goods tomorrow afternoon and emerge
from the fray . victorious over the
strong Harbor Town squad, there will
be the triple tie for third place. Wai
luku has finished Its schedule with
one game won and two lost. Kahului
at present holds second position hav
ing won and lost a game. Lahaina,
having suffered two straight losses,
has the one chance left to save itself
from ignominous defeat.
On the other hand, should the Red
nnd Blue retread their journeying
steps across the Pali, victors, It will
have convincingly prove that the
"wise guy's" who early In the season
predicted them to finish fourth for
the very good reason that theie was

Teachers Association Of Hilo
Passes Strong Resolutions
Against Taking Free Educa
tion Away v
(Sl)ecla, Correspondence from E. A.
II1La Dec. UM moetI of ,
! December 9, 1022, the matter of tho
! limitation of free public school educa
tion was considered. It ha3 been re
ported from time to time that an effort
will bo made at the next session of
tho Territoria legislature, to require
t0 pay tho cost of the,p educa.
tion after thcy huve reached
sixth grade. It is felt that any such
nllff nllniOTll llf ivnc ,tlM1t
cation and conlI,ulsory attendance
will result disastrously to the govern
ment of Hawaii and to the educational
interests of cur Territory.
Would Be Step Back
It is recognized throughout the
United States that the school system
of a district is an index to the intel
lectuality of its people. Hawaii stands
well at the piesent time in compari
son witli tho other divisions of tho
United States, but such a curtailment,
as has been suggested, of the educa
tion of our boys and girls, would at
once relegate us to the bottom of the
list. There is no other state or ter
ritory within our domain that assesses
tlie cost of elementary or high school
education to the pupils being educated.
In fact, tho pupils are considered the
wards of the government, and as such
it is to the interest of the govern
ment to educate them. Those dis
tricts which have advanced education
the most have produced the most
wealth per capita. States have so
recognized this principle that they
have provided extension schools and
advanced the years of compulsory at
tendance. Our best states at the pres
ent time require pupils to attend
school until they are eighteen years
old. Tho view of the Hilo Teachers'
Union on this matter is expressed in
the following lesolution which was
adopted by unanimous vote:
The committee on educational poli
cies offers the following resolution:
Whereas, the success of our repub
lican form of gorment rests upon the
intelligence and morality of the gov
erned, and the development of intel
ligence and morality rests on the
(foundation of free and compulsory pub
j lie school education, and
Whereas, any attempt to limit or
I hinder free public school education
jwill have a tendency to destroy the
! foundation on which our popular form
f government depends for its exist-
' unce um,
whtreaS( ,Knoranco is subversive of
(he undorlylng principles of stable
government as exemplified in Russia
nnd fMilnn .if ihi nresenf Hmo.
Therefore, be it resolved that, in as
years, to help meet tho cost of free
our territoial government against tho
suiting from ignorance.
