WAXTED: A WELFARE
llilo lias made an important
new departure in the incorporat
ion of an Island Welfare Bureau,
headed by some of the most in
fluential iuterests and men of that
town, for the purpose of inaugu
rating and conducting needed
charities, relief work, etc. The
plans and purposes of this bureau
are broad enough to cover almost
every needed reform, or interest
of a growing community extend
ing to such widely different mat -j
ters as the guidance of legislation,
and the encouragement of thrift.
Some such bureau is an insti

Good Motion Pictures
Kauai is being treated to soni'S
mighty fine motion pictures of late.
The picture "Missing" is especially
worthy of mention. Robert Gordon,
the rising young actor, who has be
come famous as Huck Finn in the
Tom Sawyer series, is co-star with
Sylvia Dreamer, the beautiful and
talented young Australian. We are
also getting exceptionally good Mox
Sennett comedies. "To Hell With the
Kaiser" proved to be a most satisfy
Although Lihue has been getting!
some good pictures, a great deal of
the pleasure is taken from them by
the presence of hoodlums with their
loud talking and obscene remarks. It
is a great pity that the management
does not take steps to put a stop to it.
BACK TO SCHOOL
There was quite an exodus of
young people returning to school
last Saturday- and the wharf was
crowded bv them and their
friends who' were on hand to see :
them oil'. Among them were not
ed the following: The two Raid
win boys, Paul and Cedric, from
Makaweli, Dora Rroadbent, Mor
timer and Homer Lydgate, Paul
Kice, Neill Moler, Erna Maser.
Ella Winter, Nelson Young from
Lihue. The Luhr girls from Ko-
loa. Linden Mclaucou and Hnub
Rrodie from EIele, the Sanborn '
boys and Sanfovd Deverill from
llanalei. In addition to these
there were a few others whom we
could not place.

For the Betterment of the In

c. j. McCarthy
Governor of Hawaii
( From the Kauai Shin Po Slia i
The co-operation between all the
people in Hawaii is very unique. We
have here people of many races.
Koine of whom are: citizens of the
United States, while a majority are
not. Our population is odd because
there are so many different races.
All these people get along together
as if they were of the same race and
nationality. Many Orientals came
here originall, because wage3 were
higher than in their own country.
They intended to acquire a stake,
then go back home to live. After liv
ing here for a time they get home
sick, and are unhappy. This is human
and applies not only to them but to
all people, and I believe that the ex
perience of all people in this regard
are alike. When away from home,
they desire to get back, but after go-
ins home- 11 does not Beem to be the
same as it used to be. The result in
most cases is that they then want to
get back to the new country again.
The feeling of homesickness never
leaves them until they have taken the
Hawaii has become very prosper
ous in the last thirty years, and I be
lieve that it owes a great part of this
prosperity to the industry of its non
citizen population. A great part of
this nortion of the nonulatlon have
been agricultural workers, and their I
labor has sreatly increased our pro-i
ducti(" of sugar and pineapples
Whlla the capitalists owning the :e
properties have become wealthy, the
laborers have become prosperous. It
is a usual sight to see field laborers
riding in automobiles which they
could not do unless they had money.
Our laborers are all well dressed and
strangers from the mainland always
remark how well dressed our school

An Important Protest
Mr. J. M. Lydgate,
Censor for Kauai Moving Pictures,
Dear Sir: In my opinion the pictures

r.re altogether too much of the blood-und-thuuder
character. I think re

that has B0 ,nuoh ,mmU'r- kn!flnK 8,1,1
There is a tendency to bur out a.iy
thing of a slightly immoral nature,
but 1 believe such pictures, so long as
they do not go too far. are a thousand
times belter than the blood and-thun

Due of the most beautiful and
w 11 appointed affairs of the holi
day season was a garden party
given by Mr. and Mrs. P.. D. Ilald
win at their beautiful home in
Makaweli, New Year's day.
Early in the afternoon friends
began to arrive from all parts of
the island and were received by
Mr. and Mrs. P.ablwin in Iheir
own charming manner, as they
entered the grounds.
The day was perfect, the warm
sunshine, the balmy breezes, all
blended with the strains of de
lightful music that issued forth
from the arbor of Rouganvillia, to
which dancers were keeping lime.
At dillereut parts of the garden
tables were placed and about
lliem comfortable seats where
guests mingled and extended
greetings of Ihe season. Delicious
two course refreshments were
served after which Miss Helen
Center delighted those present
with her Rlne Hird dance which
was followed later with a Spanish
taniborine dance.- The costumes
were very pretty and added much
to these graceful dances.
Mr. and Mrs. Douglas Raid win,
Paul and Cedric Raldwin, were
everywhere adding comfort and
pleasure to Ihe guests.
The Raldwin home, with its
terraced grounds, its ferns s:nd
flowers, formed a picture of un
usual beauty as the guests stroll
ed abyut ;. doing color and life to
what nature had already si! boun
A long afternoon was all toe
short for such pleasure as this
garden party and before the
guests were aware the shadows
were growing long. The guests
extended their farewells to Mr.
and Mrs. P.aldwin. wishing them
a year of just such happiness as
they had given to Iheir friends on
