THE GOVERNOR AXD HIS PARK POLICY
Future generations will line up and bless
Governor McCarthy because he has given us
parks, even when we ourselves didn't much
care whether he did or not. In this respect
he is wise beyond his generation. We our
selves are apt to be more or less indifferent
'about these things.
The population is small, we think, the
country side is more or less open and available
to everybody, we have autos, we can go to the
mountains or the sea side whenever we want
to. etc. Hut we fail to realize that the days
an comiug when there will be a big population,
and t he open places will be filled up. and there
will be great numbers who will not have autos
or other means of getting to the far away out
ing spots that are left. Now, while these park
reservations are easily available, we must look
ahead and forsee the great need that there
will be for them in the future, when they will
not be available.
There are some, perhaps, who say; "Why
this waste of public land. it might be sold for
lots and the Treasury enriched?" If once sold
off it is lost for good to the public, and no bene
fit is realized from the steadily growing value
of t he same. If retained, in this beneficial
way, the public eat their cake day by day as
they go. and have it too at the end. What
bolter investment is there than that?
The present Administration have done fine
things for Kauai in the Park line and we want
to express our appreciation of the same. They
hae given us l'uu ka-l'ele, I'oliahu, and Tlana
pe ..-. find now are proposing fine large Park
Reservations at Wailua and Kekaha-Maua.
These parks are well distributed, on the
populous side of the Island, and will constitute
ft most valuable inheritance for which future
generations will be very grateful.
Something however, should be doue along
the same line for the East and North side of
the Island. Some kind of a playground park,
at least, ought to be secured for the Moloaa
Kihiuea region, and a scenic park for Ilanalei.
The difficulty is available sites for the same.
Everything half-way Ruitable is already in
A WORD TO COWARDS
If there is any place in the world for the
writer of anonymous letters we have never been
able to locate it. They do say there is a place
where some people go after Tleath, that is made
up largely of fire and brimstone, and Home
times we imagine that it was originally inten
ded to hold the writers of anonymous letters
when they have finished their dirty work here
We want to say in justice to Kauai that no
place in the country is as free from this par
ticular breed of trouble-makers. Now and
then, however, one crops out in the community,
and we hear of it with both shame and regret.
Always the writer of such letters is too coward
ly to come out in the open and maEe the same
charges, or cast the same insinuations they do
in their anonymous letters, so it is seldom they
are caught with the goodR. But if there is
anything too mean or too severe to visit upon
such persons when they are caught, we can't
think of it. The most valued possession of
any man or woman is their good name. And
that person who would rob them of it, or who
would without cause besmirch it, is worse than,
a thief in the night. The thief steals only
what can be replaced. The anonymous letter
writer seeks to rob you of that which, once
taken from you. may never be regained.
We have not received an anonymous letter
for some time and we hope we never will
again. But whenever we do, and we can learn
the name of the writer, we are going to use
enough space and enough printer's ink to peel
the skin off them from their head to their feet
if it is the last thing the ruler of the universe
lets us do.
About the first of the month when bills come
due the average man would welcome an attack
of that new disease, "sleeping sickness."

We've Been Selected to
Furnish You Uniform Tires
99 ExcellentBuilt By Crack Squads
MOTORISTS today must choose between 429 brands of
tires. Even tires made side by side, in the same factory,
differ in mileage enormously.
If you get a "lucky" tire it may run between 5,000 and
10,000 miles. The next may fail under 1,000.
Not so with Miller Tires. Once they varied as the rest do.
Today 99 in 100 outrun guarantees. The reason is this:
Tires are mostly handwork. They differ as the men who
build them differ. Miller triumphed by training a regiment of
men to build uniformly.
Every Miller tire-builder must
pass exacting standards. He is
marked on every tire that he
builds. More than that, he is pen
alized if ever one comes back.
The tires that these Miller
champions make 99 in 100
wear practically uniform under
These are the only tires actual
ly Ceared-to-the-Road. Note the
ratchet-like tread how the cogs
engage the ground at each turn.
That gives positive traction and
keeps the wheels from spinning
when you start your car. Thus
the Miller Tread prevents scuffing
and burning tires. And of course
it makes all roads safer.
Give Them This Test
Next time don't buy only one
tire come here and let us put a
pair of Miller team-mates on op
posite wheels of your car. Then
both will give like endurance.
After that test of Miller uniform
ity you'll never trust to luck.
