LOOK AFTER THE "MOVIES''
Tin Chamber of Commerce let

yard to moving pictures, published
in another column of this issue,
calls attention to a very vital and
If the "movies" are going to tie
allowed to dispense vicious, im
moral ami indecent propaganda
for the devil, at will, it is going to
be mighty "hard sledding" for the
churches. Sunday schools and oth
er moral agencies of the commun
ity to hold their own against them.
And more menacing still, it is go
inr to be an uphill job for the
homes 1o hold out against them.
1 lie comparatively few ( a1 nest,
sincere and right minded people
who freipient the churches and
tind inspiration and moral edu
cation there, are not "in it" with
the crowds who go to the "movie
and the latter are the ones that
need the education and inspira
tion the most. Furthermore, by the
very weight of numbers, and out
spoken virility of opinion, they
are the ones who make themselves
heard, and who are going to con
stitute public opinion.
If there was a doctrinal heresay
in one of our churches something
about the Trinity, or Salvation by
Faith there would be a great line
and cry about it, and the heresy
would be rooted out, even though
not one person in a hundred un
derstood what it was all about.

propogauda of the devil and noth
ing is done abilut it.
There is no getting away from
the fact that the "movies" do
reach He masses, and do influence
them. Accordingly, whatever we
do about our churches, we must
look after the "movies" ami see to
it that they are not insidiously,
but steadily undermining the very
foundations of our social fabric,
defeating the influence of the
home, poisoning the springs of
happiness, and corroding the fine
ideals of life.
THE CLOS1SG SCHOOLS,
AM DEl'ARTJXO TEACHERS
The Closing exercises of the
schools this week; the trooping
home of the children with their
books for vacation, and the depart
ure for other scenes of scores of
teachers, all Ihese things remind
us again of the fact that these
schools are one of the most vital
factors in the well-being and suc
cess of tin; coming generation.
We think perhaps of fields, and
mills, and stores and banks as the
important institutions of a com
munity, they are not to be com
pared with the schools lor signili
cance and far reaching influence.
During the year now closing the
schools on this Island have been
very seriously handicapped, first
by a shortage of teachers, and lat
er by the prevalence of the II u epi
demic. In spite of these handi
caps, we undertsand that the
schools have all completed the
year's work very satisfactorily.
This has been done maiuly by
the unremitting faithfulness of
teachers and children, making up
for lost time. This has entailed a
great deal of extra work on the
teachers, and made it very hard
for them. They are to be highly
commended and congratulated on
All things considered, we have
had a very superior lot of teachers
s year, both those from abroad,
and those trained here at home;
and it is a matter of sincere regret
(that we are losing so many of
them. We will remember them
with pleasure, and our very bests
wishes go with them.

County Fair Debt
Be Soon Wiped Out
The plantations of central Maui
have virtually decided to assume the
entire indebtedness of the Maui Coun
ty Fair & Racing Association, amount
ing to some $62,000 and to contribute
some $10,000 or $12,000 additional for
further development of the associa
tion property at Kahului, says the Maui
This announcement is made by
Harold W. Rice, chairman of the 1920
fair committee, who it is understood

the several plantations. The plan has

The plan is for the companies to
assess themselves 75 cents per ton on
this year's sugar production, which
will be probably close to 100,000 tons.
That th" idea has been so favorably
received is considered one of the most
flattering endorsements possible of
the value of the Maui county fair to
The assets of the fair association
at the present time total about $80,000
in value, aud with the improvements
planned for this year are expected to
amount to at least $1UU,000. Through
the support of the sugar interests just
mentioned, this amount of assets will
be absolutely free of incumbrance

Fair Financial Success
Wnile tlie attitude of the sugar men
towards the fair association is parti
cularly gratifying, it should not be
taken to indicate that the organiza
tion was in any financial straits. In
fact the association has been financial
ly successful from the start. It has
been handled on conservative business
lines, and the indebtedness was all
well provided for in the future. The
aid thus unexpectedly offering at this
time simply makes it possible to
realize a good many ambitions con
siderably sooner. Maui News
