THE GARDEN ISLAND. TUESDAY, JULY 31. 1917
THE GARDEN ISLAND
Issued Every Tuesday Morning ,
Kenneth C. Hopper
J. M. Lydgate
We hear it said on a good mny sides that there in urgent ned on
this Island for a more careful and more efficient traffic supervision,
and a more rigid and impartial enforcement of the law.
Unquestionably, with our grooving traflic, and with the growing
participation in that traflic of driver? who arc more or less unfit, and
more or less reckless, there is an ever increasing danger of accident;
and that one of these days we are likely to have a serious disaster that
will wake people up for good. ,
Those who are perhaps best able to judge, say that what we need,
and must have sooner or later, is one or more traflic officers for each
populous district, mounted on motor cycles, who will' patrol the high
ways and promptly tirrest all who neglect or contravene the law.
However that may be, assuredly every day gives fresh evidences of
the disregard of the law, many think a growing disregard because of
immunity, which ought to be corrected with a round turn in the in
terest of the dignity of the law, as well as in the interest of the safety of
life and limb.

What To Know And What Not.
Referring to the matter of Obsolete Education treated in another
column; It is perhaps true that there is no kind of knowledge that is
not more or less valuable. Here in Hawaii even, it might be nice to be
familiar with Choctaw, or to to, know the soundings in the Straits of
Magellan, or the bugs of Tiuibuetoo. But manifestly there are a great
many other things which it would be a great deal better for us to know.
There is a limit to the range of our education; Ave can't know every
thing. We must pick and choose, and something must be left out. With
History piling up behind us; with the claims of Science and Literature
and Art gvowing apace; with Domestic Economy, and Manual Training,
and Art Handicraft demanding a place in our education ; and many more
applicants in line behind them, the time has surely eme when we have
got to do some reconstruction to give them room.
We would like to retain our old friends the Rods and the Roods,
and Cube Root, and Least Common Multiple, and Allegation, and the
rest of the old back numbers that nobody knows in practical life, but
can we afford to do so in view of all the others that must be taken in?
Presumably we will retain English Grammar for a while yet, but ulti
mately, no doubt, it too will be crowded off into the reserve list.
At any rate, we can no longer afford to lumber up our Educational
Curriculum with junk, just because it is old and has always been there;
the time has come when we must cerutinize every claim, and give every
subject a rating according to its merits and value.

Hanamaulu, who has been drag-
ging along in the fourth place in
the Y. M. C. A. intcr-club athle
tics, went after the broad jump
hard the past week coming out first
in that event with an average of
(io 7-9 points. McBrydc. who has
been stcadilv improving from the
start continues to crawl another
notch higher by taking second
place this week with the score of
G4 15-16. Liliue dropped from
second place to third with an aver
age of (14 11-14. Koloa, altho hav
ing the champion broad jumper of
the league has to be satisfied with
4th. position, while Camp 4, Maka
weli goes into last place.
Damasio Rosario, with a leap of
Sft. Sin. carries away the honoi
of being the best jumper among the
Y. M. C. A Clubs, FianciscoEHno,
of Camp 7, McBrydc, stretched the
tape to Sft Gin. wbjle Calasito Gasi-
nio, of the same camp, takes third
place with 8ft. oin.
The totals' of the first three weeks
of the contest finds McBryde and
Koloa fighting it out for first place,
both have 203 points to their credit
but the fraction places McBryde in
the lead. Hanamaulu is third with
a slight fraction over 202. So'f.ir
another close contest is going on to
keep out of the cellar. Lihue and
Makaweli also have the same num
ber of points 201, but like the two
leading clubs, the fraction puts Li
hue fourth and Camp 4, Makaweli
One of the best events of the ath
letics will be the running high

Extra Mileage You Can Sec?
The extra thickness of the
Michelin Tread due to
extra rubber and fabric
means additional mileage.
Especially is this true since
every ounce of rubber and
fabric is the toughest that
money, skill and experience
Michelins give so much
mileage that they'd be
economical even if high
priced. But they're
not high priced.
