How Quickly We Forget! '
1 1 seems lnil csterday that the long range
gun opened lirt' on I 'iii is and wo feared the Hun
had won. A IVw lioiii's. later, the (ieinuins
swept through Ihe buttered lines with victory
at their linger tips. Thru the American Ma
rines at Cliiitcini Thierry lciijii'd to undying,
lame whi'ii they nurd lo meet the roaring tide
. i if death singing "The Yanks iyie Coining."
The Yanks continued lo go on and on to St.
Mihiel and Ihe Argonue'orest. mid turned the
iinuiin Hag lo the while !lag of surrender.
Now we're discussing peace and our troops
are coming huine. The edge of our enthusiasm
is wearing oil' a little and business dollars are
getting up si cam.
Hut there is yet hefore us a duty. That of
paying oil' die mortgage whiijh (he debt of
war has laid upon us. We must not forget
Ihe Fifth Liberty Loan which will wipe clean
this debt. Wo must not forget the deeds of
our men who have put deeper color into the
red of the flag, a new brilliance in the starry'
lield ami a purer white that betokens a hope
for world pciwc. Our service is not ended, our
job is not tinished. Ranged alongside of the
sacriliccs that were made by our Yankee boys
who are sleeping now in the lields of France
our par! of siibscTibing lo a Victory Loan is
iin easy task. Life is the most precious thing
we hold, yet line brave lads gave up theirs that
you might live. Aren't a few dollars small
enough payment to ask of you in recognition
of this deed which the soldiers and sailors did?
Every bond you buy helps build higher the
monument to the departed boys helps to re-
.mind your children when they grow up that
because of those boys (hey are enjoying pros
perity ami peace. I'phohl the victories by
holding Yiciory Liberty Bonds.
.1 WISH POLICY
Vi I. lo commend (o ihe allei lion of
our readers ihe very rational mid suggestive
iiddvess by . Yaughaii MacCaughey in another
column in which lie indicates what we hope is
to be the policy ami line of elfort of the Hoard
of Education under his administration. It is
the niosi promising thing that we have seen
yet and wo sincerely hope that it means busi
ness. A rural education for rural people, ad
ministered by teachers who understand rural
conditions; mi industrial education for the
great mass of people who must make their
living by industrial service; a universal edu
cation that will include all people and gradu
ally cover all the interests and activities of
life, this is a program as wise as it is com
prehensive, and one which must commend itself
to all intelligent and progressive people.
In the line of rural and industrial edu
cation we would like to suggest that arrange
ments be made to give educational credits to
school children for the agricultural or other
manual work? w hich they do on the plantations.
This is valuable education and should receive
the recognition of the educational department.
In schools a ml colleges here and elsewhere, we
understand, generous credits are given for
-athletic ell'ort, it counts as part of their edu
cation. Surely the same advantage should be
given to manual ell'ort.
THAT WE MAY A'AOVV
SPEAKING for the ordinary man, who
reads the papers in a cursory way, it is a
very .confusing matter to follow the ups and
downs of legislation in the Senate and the
House. Bills are reported by number and are
bunched together in herds; they are referred
to committees and handed down by com
mittees; they are passed back to the other
branch of the legislature for reconsideration,
correction, or amendment; there are first,
second and third readings,uutil an ordinary
man is hopelessly lost, and gives the whole
thing up iis a bad job.
It would be a great boon for this ordinary
man, if some one in touch with the workings
of the legislative machine could separate the
wheat from the chaff and report intelligible
In this connection we would venture to
suggest that the final bills, as passed and ap
proved by the Governor, should be published,
not alone in Honolulu, but also in those com
munities which are particularly interested
An Act to provide a harbor for Kapaa, or
a macadam road for the Kapalii homesteads,
or si special tax levy on Kauai for the Mahe
lona Hospital such acts ought to be published
on Kauai so that Kauai people inay be readily
informed in regard to them.

Local motor car owners whose cars
are equipped with electric starting
and lighting systems will be interested
in a remarkable device Just installed
by Kauai Garage which they recently
purchased from a large Chicago con
cern. A most interesting demonstra
tion was made showing AMBl", this
instrument, in action attached to a
car at the garage recently it was
weird to see the almost human in
telligence of the AMRU as its indi
cating arrow slowly moved this way or
that on the dial showing certain con
ditions normal or the location of trou
ble or faults in the electric system on
No doubt many would say that it
was impossible for any device to au
tomatically Indicate the seat of trou
ble, but they said of the aeropla.ue and
'the submarine not possible yet
: they're flying in the air and sailing
under the sea.
! This invention and its remarkable
ability was described and discussed in
the leading periodicals of the country.
The motorists of Kauai are singu
larly fortunate in having a garage
progressive enough to appreciate the
advantage of owning such an instru
ment and they should show their ap
preciation in a substantial way.
The garage plans to charge a nom
inal fee of $2.00 for a test of the en
tire electrical equipment of a car
which will probably indicate the be
ginning of some trouble which can be
quickly corrected and save a big ex
pense later. AMBU not only tella
the location and kind of trouble but
also how to repair it.
So our car owners need not lay up
their cars or go to the trouble and ex
pense of sending parts back to the
makers of the electrical equipment.
It is said that serious derangements
of electrical starting and lighting sys
tems have been located and repaired
30 minutes through the aid of
The Kauai Garage people seem very
much interested in showing the instru
ment to any one and it fs fascinating
to see it in action. We surely are liv
ing iii a progressive age. ..
The Federal School Survey
By Vaughan MacCaughey
f consider the proposed Federal
School Survey to be a very important
undertaking and will do in all my
power to hasten and consummate it.
It has been my good fortune to have
had close association with the U. S.
Bureau of Education, over a period of
years. I am familiar with the Sur
veys conducted by this bureau in oth
er localities and can testify to the
uniformly beneficial and helpful ef
fects of these studies. Any large
school system is likely to drift into
ruts, and to get out of touch with the
swift progress of modern events.
Hawaii will be aided in many ways by
the Survey. It will many times re
pay the relatively nominal expense.
The Department of Public Instruc
tion will facilitate and assist the Sur
vey in every feasible manner. We
intend to utilize the interval between
the present time and next fall in con
structive preparation for the survey,
so that the Status and needs of our
schools may be readily ascertained.
The Survey will mark an epoch in the
history of Hawaii's schools.

It hurt my feelings, to Hay noth
ing about the oll'ecr on my pocket
hook, when I found it necessary
to discard a VACUUM CUP
TIKI' the other day that had
given me only a trifle over 12,000
miles service. My reason for
registering a kick is that I have
never had less than l.i.otit) miles
service from a VACUUM CUP
In justice to the Tire I might
s.ly that there seems to he a small
cut in the casing, due no doubt to
tunning over a sharp object, as
the rubber on the tread is still
good (about 14 thick). I be
lieve that I could have had my
Usual mileage had the tire not
sull'crod the cut.
