Sunday Moving Pictures
The matter of Sunday evening moving pictures is to come up before
the Board of Supervisors this Wednesday at which time, we understand,
a petition signed by inanv weighty names will be presented in favor of
allowing the presentation of religious and educational pictures on Sun
day evening and will be opposed by a counter petition also largely sign
ed by responsible people against the same. Strange to say a number of
good names are on both petitions.
The explanation is simple and significant. The former petition is
a year old or so, and was signed in" good faith by intelligent and well
meaning people on the assurance that the pictures shown would be re
ligious and educational, high class pictures, and that such pictures would
have a very salutary moral and educational value.
The latter petition has been signed after a years experience of the
futility of any such expectation. Over and over ngain we have learned
that the general public and the local show man are entirely in the hands
of the agents or promoters on the mainland who make up the programs
We fail, a good deal of the time, to get the kind of pictures that are
suitable for week-day nights; much more are we likely to fail in getting
the right kind for Sunday nights.
We have three nights in the week now for moving pictures, surely
that will sullice for our present needs.
A Community Asset
On two significant occasions during the last ten days the Li hue Ar
mory has demonstrated its exceeding usefulness to the community local
ly, and to the whole Island. The availability of a suitable auditorium
v 'iere such public gatherings as the Patriotic lially on Liberty Loan Day,
and the Mokihana Fair on Saturday evening, may be held with comfort
and convenience will, doubtless lead to the greater frequency of such
gatherings; and these in turn will tend to the development of a more
general community spirit.
It is well that we should meet our neighbors of all classes, and from
all quarters, from time to time, in one common place and with one com
mon interest; the Armory will do very much to facilitate this acquain
tance and fellowship. For every reason it is a valuable asset,
We commend the countesy of the National Guard authorities in
placing it at the disposal of the public for such purposes, and for their
effective cooperation in making these affairs a success.
The Mokihana Fair
The fair conducted by the Mokihana Club at the Lihue armory Sat
urday evening signalizes the high water mark of community endeavor
thus far. In these days when the ties of community fellowship if not
of community peace are more or less strained it was reassuring to see all
races and nationalities participating not only cordially and congenially
as on a gala occasion, but standing shoulder to shoulder in bearing the
burdens and doing the work. To work together gives us not only a bet
ter mutual understanding, but a deeper mutual sympathy and respect.
Quite aside from the financial outcome the fair was a great success.
Department of National Guard
The Kauai National Guard leaving for Honolulu this week carry
with them the enthusiastic interest and appreciation of all public spirit
ed and patriotic people on the Island.
- One way and another they have had a discouraging and up-hill row
to hoe; it is vastly to their credit that they have stood by their duty and
hung on even when it seemed scarcely worth while. We congratulate
them on their loyalty and devotion, and we rest confident in the assur
ance that they will do credit to our Island in the training camp. Nation
al Guard of Kauai we are proud of you! And may a kind Providence
bring you back in safety 1

Wreck and Rescue
At French Frigate
The Star-Bulletin of a week ago
has a very interesting account of
the discovery and rescue of the crew
of the schooner Churchill by Harold
W. Bice of Maui and his party in
the )ower sampan Makaiwa.
This party left Honolulu Oct. 22
on a fishing expedition tothe north
west. They visited Bird Island then
Neckar Island and reached the vicin
ity of the great French Frigate
shoals on the morning of the 20th.
On the near margin of the shoals
they discovered the schooner Chur
chill grounded and rapidly pound
ing to pieces. Hailing the schooner
they learned that she had struck
the night before, nnd-that us soon
as he realized the gravity of the
situation the captain, Granzow, had
sent his best boat with the most of
the crew, including his two boys, to
French Frigate; Koek about five
miles away, with instructions to
