THE EXT EX SI ON LEADERS
the University of Hawaii, cooperating with
tbu Experiment Station of the II. S. 1. A. ia
Li 'iigiug an all-star group of men to give its ag
ru ultural extension course on Kauai. A word
about these men will be interesting.
J'rofessor David L. Crawford, who has charge
of the extension work for the University, is
professor of Entomology. His undergradoate
work was taken at Pomona College. Later he
won his master's degree at Stanford University.
Professor Crawford has been most active in all
College and University of Hawaii undertakings.
For two years he coached a championship foot
bull team. He successfully piloted the cam
paign for- funds for the university swimming
ta ik, which is now nearing completion. Ad
in addition to all that he finds time to direct
ths welfare wor kthat is being carried on by the
Hawaiian Pineapple Company.
Professor Louis A. Uenke is a graduate of
the University of Wisconsin, where one of the
finest colleges of agriculture in the United
States is located. Professor Henke has been
professor of Agriculture at the College and U-nh-ersity
of Hawaii for over six years. During
that time he has done much for the agriculture
of Hawaii. He has developed, along practical
paying lines, the most outstanding herd of
dairy cows in Hawaii. This herd now holds
first place for all Hawaiian-produced A. R. O.
records. Professor Henke served as chairman
of the livestock committee of the Territorial
Fairs in 1018 and 1!)1!. He has also developed
a hybrid corn of promise.
Frederick O. Krauss needs no introduction
to the people of Kauai. Mr. Krauss is now
one of the most outstanding agriculturists of
tlr-J Territory. For several years he was the
agronomist at the United States Experiment
SI ation. Later he became associate professor of
agriculture at the College of Hawaii. About
this time the Kula homesteads of Maui were
opened up and Mr. Krauss drew one of them.
His work on Maui is almost so well known that
little mention of it is necessary. It speaks for
itself. He has done much original work on
the fertilizing of crops adapted to Hawaii, ne
has conducted many feeding tests with hogs
and cattle, and has discovered many things
that now mean thousands of dollars annually
to the farmers of Haw;i. Big plantation
mn and small homesteaders and farmers alike
owe much to F. G. Krauss.
Professor J. K Flanders is a new man in ILi
wii. He is not an agriculturist. The Uni
versity is sending him to Kauai to lecture on
Tuesday afternoon to the women under the aus
pices of the Mokihana Club. Mr. Flanders is
professor of Psychology and Education. He
was especially recommended to the University
of Hawaii by Professor Kemp, who came to Ha
waii last year as one of the members of the
Fi deral School Survey.
Assisting these University of Hawaii men
aie O. H. Swezey and J. H. Midkiff of the staff
of the Experiment Station of the Hawaiian
Si gar Planters' Association. Mr. Swezey has
been chief entomologist for the H. S. I'. A. for a
number of years. Due to his efforts many of the
inuect pests that seriously threatened the cane
industry of Hawaii are now well under control.
Mr. Midkiff was formerly a member of the Ag
ricultural staff of the College of Hawaii.
OUR EXTENSION COURSE
Money is of very little use unless it can be
put into circulation. The . same is true of
knowledge. All the stored-up kuowledge in
the uuiverse would not help us if we could not
The University of Hawaii realizes that fact.
It has the potential knowledge. It has the
books, the teachers, and the laboratories. It
has spent several years learning how to apply
se'entific findings to Hawaii's conditions. It
is 'jow ready to give to the people, in a wider
measure than ever before, the benefit of its
The extension course that is now being
given by the University of nawaii is largely
agricultural. The subjects discussed are piac
tical ones, things that every day farmers want
to know. Soils, crops, fertilizers and farm
an inals are discussed by men who know their
Bubjects. The University of Hawaii lias
raised on its own farm a number of dairy cows
thut have broken all Island milk records. Prof.
Ileake has produced a hybrid corn that is do
in exceptionally well at low elevations and in
lerf hopper districts. Tests have been made
of various hog, cattle and poultry feeds ail
some" very striking facts have been determined.
Kauai farmers want to know how these things
have been done, how thej can be done on Kauai,
and these men are coming to tell them.
The agricultural extension course was given
successfully on Hawaii.' People all over that
island are asking already for, another and a
larger course. This week it is to be given to
the people jf Kauai. Tlfere is absolutely no
charge for any of these lectures and the general
public is most cordially invited to attend as
many of the meetings as possible. These men
will be here only this one week, at this time.
Next week they go to Maui to give the course

Now that Legislature is over and we can
sum up the net results, we are glad to award to
our lawmakers a goodly meed of praise : for
the things they did on our behalf, and more
especially perhaps for Hie things they didn't do.
With so many byways of folly all about them
into which they might have strayed, it is very
commendable that they stuck so well to the
plain path of common sense and conservative
wisdom. The host of-trivial, ill-advised, and
useless bills which were turned down, or tabled
or smothered in committee, is an honorable tri
bute to the session of 1921.
In addition to this more or less negative vir
tue, a number of excellent bills were passed,
which will minister largely to the well-being of
We would especially commend the spirit of
wise economy which prevailed in the counsels
of the session and which effectively restrained
any wild extravagance.
We would extend our grateful appreciation
to our own representatives in the Senate and
the House, for the faithful and intelligent work
which they did ; they more than measured up to
the average, and did honor to the Island.
Altogether it was a very creditable session.
WISDOM IX NEW ZEALAND
A law has been passed recently in New Zeal
and, taking effect May 1st of this year which
provides that "no motion picture film depicting
thievery, robbery, murder, or suicide shall be
permitted to be shown in the Dominion."
We most heartily commend the wisdom of
thv New Zealanders,. they show mighty good
seuse and an intelligent realization of the dan
gerous influence which these pictures are ex
erting. Would that we had such a law here ! .
The menace of these pictures is the greater be
cause they make their largest appeal to the un
intelligent, emotionally - impressible, and more
or less unmoral classes. If these films were
shown to scientific and literary societies,
church audiences and tfre like, it wouldn't mat
ter much, they would have too much seuse to
be afr.'cte 1 by them : it would be like water on a
Bnt to show them night after night to the av-.
erage audience we have, with a great many
children and j-oung people, and with a great
many more of crudely developed intelligence
and imperfect moral sense is to invite disaster.
I'HOVISION MADE FOR
More alert and efficient than we had given
them credit for being, our representatives in the
Senate made the necessary provision for voca
tional education on Kauai before the Chamber
of Commerce request reached them.
The ;S5,0u0 appropriation was increased to
$55,000 of which $10,000 was -apportioned to
Ohio, holds the record for 1920. The town
numbered 19 inhabitants until one day a far
mer with a family of fourteen moved into the
village, making an increase of 71 per cent.
The man who buys his clothing from a mail
order house need not tell anyone where he got
it. The clothing speaks for itself.
There are two kinds of people those who
wear comfortable shoes and those who think
they have pretty feet.
We overheard a teacher say the other day
that she doesn't know why she picked out
school teaching as a profession when there are
two or three other easy ways of lauding in the
Old Job had a lot of patience. But not so
much more than the gang now hunting new
jobs down at Washington.
A Chicago woman in her will left $8,000 for
the care of a pet dog. And if the dog dies we
suppose the money goes to the husband.
LETTERS FROM THE PEOPLE
Editor Garden Island:
In your last Issue I read your arti
cle "Tell ub about It," so am embold
ened to scribble a few lines apropos
of same. t
It is an- old saying that first im
pressions are lasting. If such be tbe
case, and it undoubtedly is, can noth
ing be done to clean up the beftch
adjacent to the NawaiUwtll -Landing.
The dumps at Kakaako, in Honolulu,
are picturesque compared to our
It Is only natural to' assume we
shall have, within the next two years,
a large influx of visitors to our, by
nature, beautiful harbor to Inspect
the new breakwater and the location
of our deepwater wharves.
Is it not a pity that a pretty beach,
strewn with old auto wheels, tires
and junk of every description should
be dumped where the prevailing cur
rent ceaselessly washes this debris
to the head of the landing In full view
of passengers coming ashore here; I
would ask what naturally are the llrst
impressions of Kauai? '. r
In California all the service sta
tions are parked round and enclosed
with pretty gardens, each one being
a beauty spot; here, well tell it not In
To me it seems a- shame that so
Itiautiful a beach and harbor should
be so defaced by such avoidable care
lessness, and if there is no law to
prevent it, surely there should be
enough "pride" to do so.
