Christmas passed off quietly all

FIRST REPORT OF
A short time ago, acting upon a
new section m the by-laws, Dr.
Ptitman, president of the Chamber
of Commerce, appointed a com
mittee of advisory motion picture
censors, consisting of one member
each at Kapaa, Lihue, Koloa, Ele
ele and Waimea. where the prin
cipal motion picture theaters are
located. The first result of this
committee's work was a report, at
the recent meeting of the Chamber,
from C. B. Morse, the member for
Eleele. Mr. Morse is principal of
the large school there. On account
of the fact that his report drives
squarely at the points intended for
his committee, it is herewith 'pre
sented in full:
Since being informed that I was
appointed to report upon the nature
of the moving pictures in our local
ity, I have tried to learn something
in regard to the subject,, although
I have been prevented from attend
ing many ot the exioitions.
I doubt, however, if the pictures
I have seen differ very much from
the ones you all have seen from
time to time.
The comedy, tragedy, and his
torical play, might be names ve
could give to the poitrayals which
we witness at nearly every show.
As to the comic picture, most of
us adults fail to see anything very
funny or interesting and we doubt
if much, or any benefit can come
to anyone from this class of pic
tures. I he tragic play, while often
holding the inttnse interest of both
young and old, contains much that
is of decided injury to the minds
of the spectators. For instance, in
a certain show, an indiau has been
dissappoiuted in love, and while
he is cutting the throat of his rival,
we could hear expressions of "mai
tai", 'maitai". These expressions
from grown men, together with
the pictures which call them forth,
must have a decidedly depraving,
and- demoralizing lnlluence upon
the young, whose tastes, and ideals
of life, are still iu the formative
