Local Y Receives Films
The Kauat Y. M. C. A. has Just
received a shipment of fifty reels of
films from the Ford Motor Company,
of Detroit, that surpasses anything
they have been able to secure in the
The subjects soon to be shown are:
Kilauea Volcano, Yellowstone Park,
two reels of "How the World Is Made,"
A Mile in the Sky, Three Ford Week
lies, one of which is "Making An Auto
mobile", Making Hawaiian Ukuleles,
Hawaiian Islands Fishermen, Behind
the Scenes in a Hotel, Washington,
D. C; Coal Mining; Pittsburg; Luther
Burbank, and Niagara Falls.
Some of the other films are on the
Hawaiian Sugar Industry, Pineapple!
Cannery Methods, The Presidents of
the United States, and other indust
rial films. This entire lot of fifty
thousand feet of film (about nine and
one half miles) has been Bent to the
Y. M. C. A. at a low cost, with the
option of keeping it for an extended
period of time. This is quite a help
to the . work here, as films of high
standard usually have Buch high rental
rates that even one week's use makes
them' prohibitive to our local organi
zation. At the usual rate of Klvine
tree movies to plantation labor the
entire lot of films will last about two
years. This would mean one free
movie of four reels once in two
months in each camp visited. It is
thuB evident that Kauai Y. M. C. A.
has a good supply of material tar the
movie part of their regular program
for some time to come.
If any of the films are not up to ex
pectations as regards educational
value, along industrial lines, they will
not be used.
Owing to the flu it has been about
four months since the last movie
shows were given, but It is hoped that
this part of the work can now be re
"Visual Instruction" has come to oc
cupy a very prominent place in all
the night schools of the large cities on
the mainland for work with foreigners,
and is very valuable here. Lest there
be some misunderstanding as to the
extent of the work here, it might be
well to state that the movie work oc
cupies a minor place in the local Y
program, when compared with all the
other activities such as night schools,
literary clubs, socials, athletics, varied
games, occasional week end camps,
and, the most vital of all, religious

may become a member of the associ
ation. Any citizen of the United
States of America and residing in the
District of Kawalhau, County of Kauai,
who is not a homesteader, but who
owns an interest in a homestead,
shall be admitted as a member, pro
vided, however, that his contract has
been approved by the land commis
sioner and the Governor of the Ter
ritory of Hawaii.
The association reserves the right
to exclude the water tender from dis
tributing the water for the homestead
ers' lands, and to other parties, when
a complaint against the same Is filed
with the board of directors, for the
misconduct of said water tender,
which complaint shall not be accepted,
unless it is duly signed by ten mem
bers or more. No complaint against
the water tender shall be accepted by
the board of directors unless accom
panied by a deposit of $5 to be for
feited to the association if the party or
parties who make the complaint can
not prove such complaint against the
said water tender. Such is the power
Invested in the water tender. With
this protection he Is protected from
petty grudges some of the homestead
ers might harbor against him, and he
is enabled to go ahead, doing what he
thinks is best for all concerned.
To further foster harmony among
the members of the association Article
18, Section 4 reads as follows:
"Every member of the association
shall obey the rules and by-laws of
this association. Anyone who provok
es disorder or proffers words to the
president or interrupts imprudently
any other member who has obtained
the floor to speak upon any measure,
shall be adjudged guilty and pay a
fine of $1.00 for the first time, for the
second time, he shall be fined $2.00,
and for the third time, he shall be
suspended from participating In any
meetings of the association for the
period of three months."
With capable men on the board of
directors and with the thought In
mind that what is good for the assocla
tion is good for the individual mem
bers, the association is bound to be a
great success and a great future is
predicted for the Kapaa Homestead
ers' and Cooperative Association.
A PIG HUNT PARTY

they got what they went after, thoy
are perfectly happy. The party was
composed of Mr. and Mrs. E. F. Wood
