Y. M. C. A. Notes
There recently came to the of
fice of Knuni Y. M. C. A. a cirru
!;tv letter from no less a personage
than lloger W. Babson, the cele
brated statist ician of Wcllesley
Hills, Massachusetts. Mr. Dab
son, as is generally known, is the
barometer of Wall Street ami also
of the church. He is an author
ity. Space will not permit a re
print of this significant' letter in
full but the following excerpts
should interest Kauai people who
claim to be loyal American citi
zens. Speaking on the subject of
"Christian ltlucation" he says:
"With the forces of evil backed
by men and money, systematically
organized to destroy, we must
back with hien and money all cam
paigns for Christian education.
We are willing to give our proper
ty and even our lives when our
country calls in time of war. Yet
the call of Christian education is
today of even greater importance
than was ever the call of army or
navy. Yes, the safety of our na
tion, including all groups, depends
on Christian education. Besides
Christian education can insure
what no corporation can insure
"As the great life insurance
companies are spending huge sums
on doctors, scientific investiga
tions, and district nurses to im
prove the healjh of the nation, so
' we business men should spend
huge sums' to develop those funda
mental qualities of integrity, in
dustry, faith and service, which
make, for true prosperity. I re
peat, the heed of the hour is not
more factories or materials, not
more railroads or steamships, not
more armies or navies but rather
more Christian education. This
is not the time to reduce invest
ments in schools and colleges at
home or in Y. M. C. A. and similar
work in China, Japan, Russia or
South America. This is the time
of all times to increase such sub
scriptions." Kauai Y. M. C A. night schools
are in n flourishing condition.
The students are regular in atten
dance and earnest in their studies.
Who are laying off from work on
the plantations these students?
Not at all. The loafers are the
ones who follow the professional

Sunday raids around plantation

By Creating Uniform Builders
We Created Uniform Tires
Each Man a Master Each Tire a Masterpiece
MILLER TIRES are known far and wide today as the Uniform
Mileage Tires. That means wherever Millers are run under
like conditions; they wear the same. That 99 Millers in 100

at a thiusand?
Miller found the solution not in
machines or methods but in men.
To pass our inspectors, the tires he builds must reach our 99 per
cent grade. If ever a Miller comes back, the builder's score is pen
alized. Under this rigid system, only one man in 25 makes good.
But those who do are masters,
Their average efficiency is 96
Geared - to - the - Road
There is no excuse longer for buying tires on luck.
We discovered that workmen must
be uniform or their tires (mostly hand
work) can never be.
By training crack squads a regiment of champions we reduced
the variables in tires to the smallest fraction.
Each Man Rated
When tire builders come here, each one must take our training
and then pass our tests.
Then our efficiency experts keep a record of that man and his work.
