the remarkably successful campaign
of Dr. Curtis. His specific recommen

the valuable, obvious and direct re
sults of. his trip were the many ex
cellent and helpful "by-products."
The entire school organization,- as
well as the various committees them
selves, has felt the splendid Inspira
tion and constructive influence ot his
trip. Many specific examples ot this
might be enumerated. . Dr. Curtis'
visit to Hawaii was a thoroughgoing
success from every point of view.

He assures us that it Is only a ques

welfare agent, devoting his full time
to the care' and interests of the peo

are the most pressing but other In

The earlier scenes were of course
entirely Hawaiian and were the moat
picturesque and ' barbaric in their
splendor with an Imposing wealth of
coloring in feather cloaks, helmets,
Kahilis, hula skirts, tapa mantles etc.
Leisurely and with stately dignity the
actors moved out onto the center ot
the stage, did their part, and moved
on or retraced their steps. It was ot
course mostly doing, what was said
didn't cut much figure, the distance
was too great - : '
The Destruction of the Idols
The most dramatic and interesting
of all the scenes to my fancy was the
destruction of the idols.. A band of
them accompanied by the royal party
came out carrying monstrous and
hideous idols on ' long ' poles, simulat
ing sharks, and Other vicious creatures
and at a given signal these were dash
ed to the ground, smashed and torn
to fragments and then burned to ash
es amidst the plaudits and outcries,
for and ag&lnst of the crowd.
They refused to do It
The original actors, Hawallans, en
gaged for this part, when it came to
the scratch In the rehearsal, refused
to do It, they were afraid, fearful of
the evil spell that mlgght fall on them
and their places had to be filled by
Orientals who had no such fear.

COAST TEACHERS DECLINE
With reference to the difficulties be
ing experienced in securing mainland
teachers for Hawaii's schools the fol
lowing quotation from a letter just re
ceived by the department of public In
struction is typical: '
"The salary you offer is lower than
teachers here are getting and we could
not afford to make the trip without
financial loss to ourselves. I have had
a gread deal of experience and It
seems to me that experience should
be counted for a little more than your
schedule allows. At any rate, 1 feei
that because of the low Salary offered,
I must not accept the appointment" '
Superintendent Vaughan Mac
Caughey states that he is receiving
many letters of this sort declining ap
pointments because of the small sal
aries. t '
Miss Mumtord, for long years prin
cipal of the Lihue school sailed by the
Makura on Sunday for an extended
trip to Canada and New England.' She
will spend a few days in Victoria and
Vancouver, then go on to Calgary
where she will visit a niece, then on
to Toronto where her sister lives
Finally she will bring up in Nova
Scotia her childhood homo among the
romantic Bcenes of Evangeline. She
expects to be gone a year or more.
This morning's boat was so crowded
with returning school teachers, that
many ordinary folk couldn't get pas
sage home and were obliged to remain
in town a few days longer.

The Necessity of Conservation
TKere exists today on the Pacific Coast an acute shortage
of gasoline. As this Company has pointed out on several
occasions, the condition is due to insufficient production of
crude oil and a greatly increased consumption of gasoline
by industry and by owners of pleasure cars.
Gasoline is a vital factor in the life of the community,
industrially and otherwise, and it is of the greatest impor
tancey '-at this jundure, that it be used .with the ,utjmost
discretion, that essential requirements may be supplied.
The present is by no means the season of maximum
demand, which comes later in the year. The condition,
therefore, is likely to be continuing, rather than transitory.
Responsibility for meeting the situation does not rest
solely upon the oil industry. The public also has a serious
duty in the matter.
On its part, the Standard Oil Company is straining its
resources and organization to increase the supply of gasoline.
In the field it is working for the maximum production of
crude oil. In the refineYy it is working for the maximum
production of gasoline from the crude oil and it is spending
large sums of money on equipment for new processes, of
its own discovery and development, whereby a still greater
yield of gasoline will be obtained.
The point already has been reached where gosoline must
be conserved most carefully. That is the duty of the public.
In consumption of this product, essential industries must
necessarily come first pleasure utilization thereafter.
AJready the Company has taken steps toward protecting
the supply for the vital needs of industry which, if: lessened,
would affect the business life of the community. There is
now the danger of a curtailment of supply to non-essentials
such as pleasure cars.
The assistance of the public, therefore, is imperative Until
lately, gasoline has been abundant, and its lavish and extra
vagant use has been possible. That time is past.
Buy as little gasoline as possible
Use what you must Waste none.
