Don't Forget The Wild Guava
In all the valleys, and on all the hillsides, and over all the plains,
and wherever there is waste land lying idle, there will soon be countless
myriads of luscious, ripening guavas. Mostly these will le the sour kind
with the world's finest possibilities for jams, jellies, preserves etc. Why
should we be so dense and so unreasoning as to import high priced and
inferior jams and jellies in large quantities, when wo have the very finest
kind of home grown supply going to waste by the wagon load under our
very eyes? .
In the great cry for Food Conversation, when we are urgently enjoin
ed to make the most of everything we have, it will be little short of crimi
nal to neglect the tons of delicious giiavas at our doors. If it were straw
berries, or apples, or cranberries, that were available, anything rare
or choice, we would make a great fuss about them; that it is only the
plebian guava doesn't prevent it from being one of the best and most de
licious fruits that the world knows, at least for preserving purposes.
The successful adoption of a very simple and inexpensive glazed
paper carton instead of the heavy, fragile and bulky glass jar will very
much facilitate the use of the guava for these purposes.
Don't despise the wild guava.
There are some of us who serve our fellow men in the ordinary
course of our every clay afTairs, mainly perhaps because wo are paid for
doing so. Even that is commendable, because there are some who in
jure their fellow men in the pursuit of their daily afTairs and make a
comfortable profit out of doing it.
Where even a beneficial service is bound up with our own advan
tage and becomes in a way the measure of olir success, there is always
apt to be some question -as to the genuineness of the altruism. Of the
professional servant, in any walk of life, even the highest, we are apt to
say "Oh, well that's his business," and that discredits his motives
But there are others, of whom we have many worthy examples in
this community, whose motives may not be discounted or impugned in
any such way. They are far removed from doing charity for a living;
they are under no financial obligation of rendering any remunerative
service. They don't need to do anything but enjoy life, and they are
abundantly equipped to do so, luxuriously. extravagantly, if they
want to. Farthermore, that sort of thing is expected of them and they
are more or less under the compulsion of it.
And in spite of all this they devote themselves most self-sacrificingly
to the good of their fellow men as they see it, and give most generousry
of their time, their energies, and their sympathies, as well as their re
sources, from no interested motive but simply to do what they can for
the good of the world aroind them.
We are singularly favored in this communitv in havinir so manv
persons of this kind, people of wealth, and of leisure, and of intelligence
as well, who have a large sense of responsibility, and whose great desire
is to use wisely and unselfishly the talents that the Lord has civen into
their hands. They make mistakes, doubtless; they use their talents as
they see best, which is sometimes not as we see best, and so sometime!
we are j put out" with them; but we would like to be as sure of the
verdict "Well done good and faithful servant" in the final Judgment as

Y. M. C. A. Athletics
Koloa proved to bo the fastest
sprinters of the Y. 11. C. A. Clubs,
when her members averaged G9 5-7
points for the 50yd. dash which
was held last week. Lihue was a
close second with an average of
CO 11-19. Camp 7, McBryde, Ila
namaulu and Makawcli follow close
behind. It is interesting to note
that Makaweli, the winners of the
GO yd. potato race, dropped to last
place in the 50yd dash, failure to
get away fast on the start and the
lack of spiked running shoes may
be given as an alibi for this organ
ization. Manuel Carvalho, of Hanamaulu,
Procopio Puring of Lihue, and
Pedro Bancales of Koloa covered
the distance in the fast time of
5 3-5 seconds. This is only one
fifth of a second behind the Island
record. These boys have the mak
ing of exceedingly fine track men
providing they will take to training
and a little coaching could be given
The first two events of the eight
weeks athletic program for the
Clubs has j) roved that there are
several fast men in the different
camps. A good fast track meet
could be held here on the Garden
Island provided these men could
be brought together. The broad
jump will keep the clubs busy this
Here's to the Kalaheo School
The girls of the Fifth and Sixth
Grades of the Kalaheo school recent
ly presented the Court of the Fifth
Circuit with a beautiful silk flag of
their own deft handwork, fourteen
feet long, very neatly made, and
out of tine material,
This flag was officially used in a
very worthy way on the 14th of
July, on which occasion ten new in
coming citizens swore allegiance to
it as their adopted flag.
These new citizens were made up

and Spanish; a wide range of races

One More Last Grass House
The grass house is not quite a
lost art as vet it seems. A genuine
typical Hawaiian example is now in
process of construction on the far
side of the Iluleia river, makai;
and the hill sides are being scoured
far and wide for poles and bamboos
for the framework and the right
kind of grass for the roof, while
the river furnishes rushes for the
walls. The builder .complains that
it is "very much hard work, and
that it goes very slow."
It will probably be one of tht
very last bona fide Hawaiian grass
houses built on the Island.

Crisco gives pastry a new flakiness and digestibility.
Crisco always is of the same freshness and consistency.
It's uniform quality makes for uniform results.
Crisco gives richness at smaller cost. It brings cake
