A Significant Courtesy
At no other plaee in their tour of the Mantis were our congression
al visitors entertained geneially in tlie private home? ns they were in
Kauai. They appreciated this generous treatment and this intimate
hospitality very much. Farthermore this gave them an opportunity to
become much more intimately acquainted with us than they otherwise
would, and enabled us to make a much more lasting impression on
them. We have, more or less, made personal friends of them by thus
taking them into the inner sanctuary of our homes and this favored
treatment of them will give a distinctive place to Kauai in their mem
ories which we trust may work out to our benefit,, whenever the oppor
tunity comes to speak a word or cast a vote m our favor.
But, however that may be, we have, some of us, entertained angels
unawares and we have received a blessing already, even though we don't
get a breakwater in addition.
To Meet A Need
Our sypmpathies go out for the Supervising Principal who must Ik?
sorely put'to it these, days in the finding of substitutes for teachers inca
pacitated by illness or other wise. It seems to have been a very unfortu
nate session in this respect; but that is the sort of thing that is liable to
happen at any time: And when it does happen it must work hardship
and disaster more or less to all involved; to the principal of the school
afTeeted; to the supervising principal who is driven to her wits end to
drum up a stop-gap, and last, but by no means least, to the grade
or room that is deprived, it may be for weeks, of competent instruction.
Now it would seem as through provision might be made against this
unfortunate contingency by having as we understand they commonly
have on the Mainland competent substitutes who may be called upon
in just such emergencies. For the whole Islands a staff of emergency
teachers might be needed, resident in Honolulu employed between times
in statistical or other otliee work, subject to instant call at any time and
A Loss To Kauai
The resignation and prospective department at the end of the year
of Mr. J. R. Myers from the management of Kilauea Plantation will in
volve a very real loss to our Island Community. Kindly, hospitable,
unselfish, public spirited people, Mr. and Mrs. Myers have endeared
themselves to all who knew them, and most to those who knew them
All the island over they have made mends: all the island over
they will le missed. Most especially have they endeared themselves to
the little Community in which they lived, and when they were most in
With most commendable consideration they have devoted them
selves, at the cost of much effort, and no little self-sacrifice, to the well
being of those about them of all classes, and have done very much in
deed to make the living conditions of that plantation socially and fra
ternally almost ideal.
That is the kind of people that we are sorry to lose.
Our very best wishes go with them ; May the sunshine of Heaven
emile upon them!
Notes Of A Bird Man
A letter recently received from
Leslie Wishard tells interestingly of
aviation activities a t San Diago
where he is completing his aviation
As he wrote he was on the point
of making his "Solo" flight, his
first flight alone.
This they are required to make
after only 8 hours of special train
ing under the guidance of a mentor
who accompany them and gives
thtm special instruction. If in this
time they do not give evidence of
being equal to the requirements
they are relentlessly "turned
down . ' '
He tells of a new machine recent
ly perfected at San Diego which
makes 120 miles an hour ami will
"tune up" to 150, and will climb
loOU ft. a minute. .It is equipped
with the (inome engine, French
make, and weighs all told only 7o0
These Gnome engines are said to
be the best in the world but are so
delicate that the life of them, under
