lulu and did not return until just be
fore the game with Makee.
This protest was also sustained and
the game awarded to Makee, 9 to 0.
The matter of McBryde playing Byrd
under the name of Daniel, before Byrd
had complied with the residence
clause, was taken up. ThiB occurred at
the game at Makaweli. As Makaweli
had not sent in a protest, the matter
was dropped, though members ot the
association expressed themselves in
no uncertain terms over these un
H. W. Page, newly arrived welfare
worker for Kilauea, was present and
made the suggestion that in future
each signed player be provided with
an identification card Issued by the
league, which be shall carry to all
games in which he plays. This will
prevent the "ringing in" of players
who are not eligible.
Captain Henderson asked permission
to sign on and play for the balance of
the season, a Mr. Breckenridge, who
has recently been employed by Mc
Bryde. This request could not be
granted for the reason that by the
time Breckenridge had complied with
the residence clause the season will
have been finished.
The matter of a championship cup
One of the most progressive and ex
perienced school principals on Kauai
advocates the cultivation, by each pub
lic school on the Island, of some suit
able commercial crop, as a serious
business venture, and for profit. It is
all well enough to dabble in a little
kitchen gardening raise a few rad
ishes or carrots, or beans, just to see
them grow but it doesn't come to
Instead of doing that kind of dille
tante work, it would be much more
profitable and Just as good training, to
raise an acre of cane, or pineapples,
and meet the actual difficulties and
problems that will come up in every
day life. This will make the boys
small homesteaders right now, and will
fit them to be larger ones later.
But what he hns more specifically in
mind is the building up of a school
fund for profitable school uses. There
are inter-school athletic meets which
involve truck rides, lunch, etc. To
have to go out into the community, hat
in hand, on a begging campaign, is
demeaning to the school, and weari
some to the public. Self respect, and
"paddle your own canoe" these are
Invaluable lessons of any education.
Perhaps they have been more or less
Another plan that he has in mind
for the use of the school fund is geog
raphy trips. Take the children, or the
upper grades, on a tour of the Island,
and give them a real personal inaight
into the scenic beauties, the industries,
the villages, the landings, the physical
and industrial make-up of our Island.
Now they know of these things only
in a hear-say sort of way; then it
would be all vivid and graphic to them.
Perhaps it might even be possible to
take a band of them to Honolulu (if
the Inter-Island would relax their rates
a little, but that isn't likely, is it?)
Now perhaps the reader will smile,
and say, "He's counting his chickens
early, isn't he!" Not at all! He has
his acre of cane growing and doing
well, so that his handsome profit is
in plain sight.
He does not advocate cane for all
the schools, but some commercial crop
could be raised. At Haena and Ilaua
lei it would be cocoanuts, at Anahola,
cocoanuts and pineapples or cane. At
Kapaa and Wallua cane or pineapples.
Of course with cocoanuts it would
take some years to get returns, but
cocoanuts might just as well be grow
ing as weeds or wattles.
It is a good suggestion, worthy of
serious consideration, and we com
mend it to the schools themselves.
was brought up and Captain Hender
son and H. M. Page were nominated a
committee to interview the merchants
of the Island regarding the matter.
G. M. Shak, secretary of the Makees,
brought up the matter of the tie game
between that team and Lihue. He
claimed that as Makeo was now two
games ahead ot Lihue, Makee should
not be required to play off the tie in
case Lihue won from Kilauea, and the
play-oft with McBryde. In the event
that Lihue should win these two games
and also the tie game, then Lihue
would be tied with Makee for first
place. Besides Makee was losing sev
eral of her best players, and the team
would be weakened.
The league officials could not see
any reason why Lihue should not have
a chance if the team can win these
games, and further that the public
was desirous of witnessing the game
resulting from a tie. no-score, sixteen
inning battle. So the game was order
