the 1 est two posters for the play

of art that we little dreamed we had.

in the last two quarter, they seemed
co lose this. The Freshmen forwards
did some wonderful pusslng and
shooting of baskets. This was part
ly due to the Freshmen rooters.
The day was one of unusual happen
ings. In the second halt, Dorothy
1 sen, a Sophomore guard, slipped and
fell wiih considerable force. Bui
immediately she jumped up, smiling.
Uesides this, the Sophomores, Juniors
and Seniors did not show an encour
aging spirit toward their fellow class
mates. But this was possibly duo to
too many ice-cream cones which were
sold during the game!
The Freshmen will receive the
Basket-ball cup which will have their
class numerals engraved upon it. The
proceeds of the games will be used
to purchase this trophy. The season
has been, on the whole, successful.
NOTE The Junior Knglish class of
Kauai High School has been studying
newspaper work. The class was ask
ed to write a report of a recent
event of interest connected with their
school life, as an example of a news
item. The printing of the best
account in the Garden Island was
promised as a reward. The above
was considered the best.
LOCAL BOYS PROMINENT IN
SPORTS IN HONOLULU
By K. Mau.
Every High school of the city put
up its best track team this year and
the result was that many records
were broken. Most of the Cornell
relay records were smashed by the
champion Punahou team.
Proud to say that Deverill, of Han
alel, the captain of the Punahou
champion team, piloted the team to
victorv. Several Island boys also
made up that championship team.
Mills School track team was also
piloted by a local lad known as
"Eleele", Henry T. Ishimura, of Eleele,

"It is an ill wind that blows nobody

Cuba, except that they raise a whop

course tends to pull the price down.
This year there is to be a big falling

Dr. IIoag'B report Includes, among
other things,, a complete study of the
Honolulu Juvenile Court, In this
cc.iiircllon a mental study was made
of 150 cases and various changes
were suggested for the Improvement
of court methods in order to bring
them Into line with the best of those
on the mainland, particularly In Los
Angeles. A similar study has been
made of both Industrial Schools with
Important recommendations In re
spect to mental examinations, phys
ical examinations and vocational in
struction. In connection with the
Boys' Industrial School extensive rec
ommendations were made In resepct
to the necessity for better housing
conditions, increased hospital facil
itles, play direction and a number of
educational features of a practical
nature. On the request of Governor
C. J McCarthy, Dr. Hong has also
made an Investigation and rendered
a report on the Oahu Insane Asylum,
which has already been submitted to
the legislature. This report includes
among other things, recommendations
for adequate medical service, office
assistance, trained helper, modern
equipment for the scientific treatment
of violent cases, better housing facil
ities and the construction, as soon as
possible, of entirely new buildings on
a new location.
Dr. Hoag'a studies have also in
cluded over 15 private schools and
many public schools on all of prin
cipal islands, altogether Including a
study by means of group Intelligence
tests and standardized educational
tests of approximately 10,000 children.
No such extensive Investigation of
individual and rare differences in in
telligence has even been attempted
before In Hawaii and the results in
the opinion of Mr. Vaughan Mac-
Caughey', Superintendent of Public
Instruction, will ultimately not only
save the Territory a very large
amount of money but will also serve
to greatly Increase the practical effi
ciency of the schools, especially
along the line of trade and vocational
Dr. Hoag on his return to the main
land again takes up his mental spec
ialty and his work as medical director
of the Los Angeles Courts. During
the summer he will as usual lecture
on mental hygiene and criminology
in the University of California.
Dr. Hoag's report will appear in the
Educational Review published by the
Department of Public Instruction be
ginning with the March number. A
final and complete report is expected
to appear as a Government publication

FIRE AND ITS MASTER
FIGHT FIRE WITH
FIHEFO.M is a fire-smothering, fire-extinguishing foam
which covers all burning objects like a blanket. It puts out
fire quicker Uian oilier extinguishing agents, and prevents' re
ignition. It coats anil clings to all surfaces, and floats on
even the most iui'lamable liquids like gasoline, burning oil,
paint, grease, etc. It is effective against every kind of fire.
Unlike water, it does not damage.
Another unusual characteristic of FOAMITE FIREFOAM is
its tremendous power of expansion. 'When brought into play,
it expands more than eight-fold in volume. You do not have
to use your imagination to realize the importance of this ad
vantage. Fire foam, unlike all other fire extinguishing agents,
neither destroys nor damages. It is easily wiped off, or
brushed off as a light powder as soon as it dries.
FOAMITE FIREFOAM HAS MASTERED EVERY TYPE OF FIRE
Atnd there is another fact that concerns yoti personally.
FOAMITE FIKE-EXTIXOUISHFRS in the 2i2 gal. bi7.e are
obtainable in our store. . In order that you may see how Fire
foam smothers fires, we will be glad to furnish you with illus
trated pamphlets showing actual photographs of fires which
have been quickly and effectively put out with FIREFOAM.
