resurfaced from a point half way
of the grade on the Waimea side
of Wahiawa gulch extending a
cross and up the grade to the
railroad crossing between Wahi

; Work on Ihe Lawai and Omao
I road contracts went on up to
June 5th at which time all road
, work except jernianent improve
1 ment work was in all districts
In May oiling was done on
most of the three miles of newly
resurfaced road from Wailua
I Bridge towards llanamaulu.
I Good progress was made on Wai-
lua new bridge, foundation work
I was mushed, three spans tf the
j arch ribs were poured, the forms
j transferred to the next three
arcnes where concrete is now
being poured. The arches will
be finished tomorrow, after a
or so in preiaration con
creting of the lloor system will
begin. It is exjtected that all of
the floor. will be poured and the
bridge practically completed by
the end of this month.
In Kawaihau District home
stead road work went on at a
gnat rate up to the time the
work was stopjed ou June 5th.
All homestead roads are still in
first class condition but the ma
cadamized road throughout the
district is badly ravelled up.
showing lack of attention during
a very dry jeriod since shutting
down all work on June 5th. The
macadamized road clear through
Kawaihau District is at ti e stac
that oil or asphalt n;u shoud Ik
applied, the macadam is weli'sti
as well as it can be and it is worn
enough so that when the oil 01
nsphatt is applied the surface
will be rough enough to prevent
serious skidding. 1 recommend
that oiling be started on Kawai
hau roads as soon as ihere i.
money available for that purpose.
In llaualei District the as
phalting was extended to and
nearly across Moloaa gulch near
ly Do miles into Kawaihau Dis
trict. No work has been done in
the District since June 5th.
Water Works: The new Wa
ter Works at Anahola was near
ly completed when work was mis
peneded on June 5th. On account,
of agitation for more water in
the Kapaa Water mains I looked
into the matter of developing ad
ditional supply and found that
the stream that passes Akulikuli
Spring rises from a series of
springs at the foot of the moun
tain a thousand feet or less above
Akulikuli. From these springs
there is now at this extremely 1
dry season and abundant supply
of water, apparently a great deal
more than riows from Akulikuli
Spring. The stream could In
tapped and any part of the water
diverted into Akulikuli tunnels j
by use of 200 feet or so of pipe at;
an additional cost of 5i dollars;
or so for labor.
At Kalaheo Water Works, tun
neling fmm Lawai stream went;
on. On account of shortage of;
tunnel men and in order to re-i
lieve the situation as soon as pos-i
sible it was decided to ditch and
pie or riume the water around!
the two mauka tunnels which am
in solid rock, a total length of!
m feet or so. j
Schools: No work of coiise-l
quence was done on any of the
buildings. In regard to a water:

Cherniavsky Giving Concert
The recent incursion -of leo
and Jan Cherniavsky into Unit
td States has resulted in these
three brilliant young artists car
rying everything to them. The
press and public and managers
simply raved over their splendid
work, and what was particular
ly commented mi was the extra
ordinary "big" torn "Leo Cher
niavsky was able to produce.
The ease with which he filled the
large auditorium in Ls Angeles
was quite startling. This young
genius has developed extraordin
ary virility in his violin playing,
and achieved such mastery over
his instrument that one cannot
help recalling the great Paga
ninni. for like Pagauinni. Ieo
Cherniavsky is developing into a
magician with regard to his in
strument. '-1 A N . r WFRNI AV s KY
Leo cherniavsky. individually,
has unfolded in a very remark
able manner. He has always re
fused to allow" any school of tech
nique to dominate his work. He
has gone from school to school,
just taking here and there what
fitted into his mind and emotions,
and is intuitionally not to be
identified with any one school, so
that the dominant note from
waihau. and being seconded by
Mr. Brandt the same was carried.
The. Board of its own motion
allowed each district for current
road work exienses the sum of!
. 1000.00 for the current mouth.

The Effect of the World's
War Upon Our School Life
The world's war has had a
great effect upon our school
work. Boys and girls have been
knitting, sewing, working as boys
;;nd girls Reserve and reading
i.nd talking much about the war.
In manv cases it was the first
time we began to think about the
poor and suffering jieople and so
v.e adopted an orphan child by
collecting a dime from each jutpil
in our school.
Our singing teacher taught us
many patriotic songs some of
them which were sung by the sol
diers in the lines. We earned
money and gave it to the Red
Cross which went to buy mater
ials for making of pajamas, ban
dages and to buy medicines. "We
learned the need of supporting
government by lending our
money so we bought Thrift and
War Saving Stamps. This money
our government used to keej) the
armies supplied with food, am

munition, cannons etc. and to
build ships lo lake over these
supplies mid Ihe soldiers.
We had home and school gar
dens ho Ihal the mimed good
could be sent (o Eiiroj to the
soldiers iitnl Ihe jioor and we also
recognized I lie conservation of
food. In Ihis way we learned
not lo be wasteful with food mid
lo choose Ihe foods which we
could raise on Ihe islands. We
learned the value of various
foods and found that we could
tciy easily do without many
fooils which we had been used to
eating. Everybody was willing
lo give upland sacrifice something
for Hie sake of the boys who were
there lighting for our freedom.
We joined the Boys and Girls
Working Reserve. The jiurjK.se
of the lieserve is to earn and give.
Those who joined were not suj
jto.sed lo ask the jiarents for fi
iiancial help, but were supjosed
lo work outside of school hours to
earn at least the amount we
jiledged. .Many of the children
earned twice the amount and all
gladly gave it to the good cause.
All these things which I have
mentioned are important but the
greatest effect of the war ujn
our school is that we have leeu
made belter and truer Americans.
The great need of this was shown
in Ihe National School Service of
Aril, l!ll!l where we see that
there are 13.000.000 j.ersons of
foreign birth in the United States
and 33,1100.0(10 persons having
one or both jiarents of foreign
countries. It is found that many
of the jicoph. who entered the
military service did not under
stand the orders given in the
Night schools have been start
ed here in our school as well as
other schools. Girls Reserve
clubs have been organized

ment and fellowshij) are with the
This wonderful- effect of the
war on our school life has cost
the lives of many millions of jeo
jde and we should consider our
selves very fortunate to be living
on these Hawaiian Islands.
Not in many years has it been
so dry along the windward coast
of Kauai. The Moloaa region is
parched almost to a desert on the
lower levels and the cattle are
suffering seriously, many of them
dying from the drought. Some
owners it is said are transferring
them to the higher and greener
levels of the mountains.
