Mrs. Waldemar Knudsen returned
from the Coast by the Lurllne, and
is now at the ancestral Knudsen
home at Walawa, where she Is busy
dismantling the family home and
packing up the family belongings.
Henceforth the Waiohai Beach
place will be her home during her
stay on the Islands. '
Thus lapses lijto past history one
of the fine old ancestral homes of
Kauai, fragrant in memory with
many kindly associations of hospital
ity and generosity running back for
It years or so.
Just across the way stands the
other deserted Knudsen home, that
of the Eric Knudsen's. Of later and
more modern construction, much
more commodious, not to say palatial
It has been the scene, for many years
of the same open-handed hospitality,
and the same fine social leadership.
It is a distinct loss to the commu
nity to have these homes dismantled
and done away with.
HERE IS A GOOD LAW
When Gov. C. J. McCarthy put his
name at the botom of Act 80 (Houne
Bill No. 290) on April 11, a law went
into effect that has long been needed.
Act 80 reads as follows:
..An Act to Prohibit the Use of Ob
scene or Lascivious Language Over
Be It enacted by the Legislature of
the Territory of Hawaii:
Section 1. Any person who shall
use, utter or speak any obscene or
lascivious language over any tele
phone line in this territory ' shall be
punished by a fine of not more than
one hundred dollars, or by imprison
ment for not more than three months,
or by both such fine and imprison
In discussing this bill with E. F.
Wood, manager of the local company,
he said, "Yes, this law is a good one,
and should bo strictly enforced. The
most frequent offenders are those
who don't get their calls quite as
quick as they think they should, and
releive their minds by 'cussing' the
"We realize," continued Mr. Wood,
"that our service is far from perfect,
but we are improving it as fast as
conditions will permit."
Archibald picked up tils paper, read
It as he ate his toast,
Read that Harding was elected and
that Cox received a roast,
Rosle, sitting 'cross the table in her
pretty morning frock,
Saw her husband jump up quickly
like he'd had an awful shock.
"Rosle, Rosie", cried he wildly, near
ly choking on his rice,
"We can now afford a motah if we
buy at medium price.
"Here within this Jolly journal starin'
me right in the face
"la an ad which reads as follows,
'Same old Figure, Same old Place!'"
"Further down it says 'We're sellin
motah cars as good as new
"Bulcks, Dodges, Cads and so forth
we have just the car for you!
"War has shot , all prices skyward
but beginning with today '
'"We will shoot all prices downward,
but please hurry, they won't stay."'
Jumped then Archie from the table,
wildly rushed he to the phone
Got his number, cried out gladly,
"Percival? I'm glad you're home!
"Have you bought yourself that mo
tah? No? Then thank your lucky
"I can take you to a bounder who is
glvln' motah cars,"
"What, you doubt me? But deah fel
lah, have you ever heard me He?
"Rarther than to tell a falsehood I
would lay me down and die!
"Lawst yeah Just before we married,
Walter Eklund had quite a sale,
"There we bought our jolly motah
with a 6mall amount of kale."
"We have never once regretted our
investment, Rose and I:
"For five hundred fifty dollars 'twas
a bloomin' jolly buy.
"So meet me in an hour at their
place down at Kapaa,
"And I promise that for what I paid
you'll get a car that's swell!"
So they met an hour later, and in
very little time,
Friend Percy bought his "Motah"
(from the place above defined).
As they left I beard ol' Archie chant
"We've got another member in the
old 'Five-fifty Club.'"
