J. I. SILVA'S
On Kauai Placed
Upon A Firm Basis
By Frank S. Pugh.
One of the most significant
acts passed by the hist legislature
was the appropriation of $10,000
for Industrial Education on
Kauai, and Ihe future of this
important subject in our schools
is now assured.
This stun provides for badly
needed equipment at Kapaa, Li
lnic, Koloa and AVainiea shops, as
well as additional new shops at
Makaweli, Kalaheo, and Kilauea.
It also provides for new school
kitchens at Koloa, Kalaheo, Maka
weli and Kilauea as soon as the
necessary buildings are provided
by the County.
Animal husbandry is given a
boost under the new appropriation
and boys will be given instruction
and practice in the handling of
livestock. School gardens will
also be enlarged.
A new feature on Kauai will
be the Flower Contest for the
"iris and is introduced mam lv to
improve the appearance of the
school grounds. Mime or me
Honolulu schools have developel
into veritable fairy lands of
flowers since the introduction of
the flower contest over in Oahu
The fragrance of the flowers at
Kaahumami school and Manoa
schools can be distinguished fully
a block away from the respective
schools and many tourists and
parents visit the schools merely to
enjoy their beauty ami fragrance.
Primary Handwork in the lower
grades is to be adequately support
ed under the new appropriation
and will be limited only to the
supply of teachers capable of
handling this work.
The suggestions and recom
mendalions recently made by the
Educational Committee of the
Kauai Chamber of Commerce
were thoroughly discussed in de
tail at the last meeting of the In
duslrial Supervisors held in Hon
olulu with the result that the new
courses will be given at one school
on each Island to begin with and
introduced at the other schools as
rapidlv as funds permit and
teachers are prepared to handle
the new courses.
On Kauai the new course,
which includes instruct ion in
gas-engines, concrete work, car
pentry, soldering, rivelting, pipe-
fitting, elementary electricity and
simple forging, will be given in
the new shops of the Lihue graded
school where equipment is now
available. As soon as the new
shops at Kapaa and aimea are
built the course will be introduced
at those schools.
The courses of study in Simp
work and Agriculture have been
entirely re-written and promise
to improve instruction along

Kauai now has a fn'.'. fledged
naval reserve corps. i n r.! are
1 1 ready thirty members eurolied
md a large number more are pre
paring to send in their applica

weather on the Lihue coast.
About two months ago an Eagle
boat came to Kauai from Hono
lulu. It anchored at Ahukini.
but due 1o rough weather, it broke
its anchor and was forced to sail
to Port Allen for harbor. It had
not been in lhat port more than
two hours when the nucleus of
Kauai's reserve was formed. Cap

More than thirty men in the
McP.ryde district have already
joined the Reserve. This means
that, in case of any hostilities,
they may be called out. Put

Hawaiian Islands without their
consent. Every man is given
the opportunity to sign up as an
apprentice to any branch of the.
In a short lime the naval auth
orities at Pearl Harbor are going
to send up a whale boat and a
cutter - to be stationed at Port
Allen all the time. If 100 men
can be recruited from Kauai they i
have promised that an Eagle boat
should be assigned to this district
and that it would also remain
here all the time. With this end
in view Mr. Eby and Captain
Mraue are anxious to recruit more
