Children in the Fields
Lihue has planted 524 acres already
which is a good showing on the 1500
which they have to plant. Of this 230
is on the Lihue side, and 294 at Hana
maulu. Most of this area has been
planted by the school children, espec
ially on the Hanamaulu section. The
plantation truck picks them up at the
close of school and takes them to the
planting field, where they work till
six o'clock, when they are conveyed
home again in the same way.
Most of these children are boys
Portuguese mainly with a few Fili
pinos. There are two little Filipino
kids, ten or twelve years old, who,
they say, can plant more cane in an
afternoon than three men. One drops
and the other covers, and they walk
through a field like a go-as-you-please
The manager is waiting expectantly
forthe close of school for the mid-summer
vacation, and the big gang of
children that will then be .available
for planting and other light work.
Even though this has been a dry
season, it hasn't quite forgotten how
to rain, at leasirat Wainiha. A week
or so ago they had 5 inches and a half
in an afternoon. Just a pleasant little
shower to lay the dust.
