JOIN THIS' WEEK
Tlie Kauai Automobile Club's drive for new
members was held up for a while waiting for
the membership cards to arrive and be printed.
They are here now, however, and printed. The
drive starts in earnest this week.
If you happened to be one of the sixteen that
was held up by the traffie police between Li
hue and Waipouli on the Fourth of July, you
know already what the club intends to do. It
intends to make automobile driving on Kiuai
the safe, everyday affair that it should be.
You may have been a little huhu at the cops or
the club at first, but, now that you think the
matter over, you ee that it is a good thing,
don't you? And you want to help the club
to abolish bad corners, skiddy turns and
tilings generally that make driving unsafe.
It will cost you two dollars and a half to
join the club for the rest of this year. As
Life says, "Obey that impulse" and join now.
A GREAT ENGINEERING FEAT
It has been said that "It is cheaper, to move
than to pay rent". However truthful this
statemeut may be there are some cases when
a move is necessary in order to save not only
the rent but" the lives of people or to make way
for improvements. . In Idaho an entire city
of 2,000 inhabitants is to be moved a distance
of three miles to make room for improvements.
The Snake river is to be dammed. A great
dam one mile in length and sixty feet high is
to be constructed in order to create a reser
voir for the irrigation of some three thousand
acres of land. Tiiis reservoir, when comple
ted, will have a shore line of nearly nine hun
dred miles, and all houses within reach of the
waters are to be removed as well as the tracks
of the Oregon Shortline railroad. This great
engineering feat would have been considered
a marvel fifty years ago; but today we marvel
at nothing, neither do we raise any doubts
concerning the feasibility of the undertaking.
We know that it can be done and that it will
be done in the interest of public welfare.
During the past few months a number of
boy scout troop, have been organized on
Kauai. Koine of them have already dropped
by the wayside .or are dying a slow and easy
death. Others are coming strong.
There is no club to which young boys may
Jielong that can do more for them than the boy
scouts, if the wont organization is headed by
the right type of men as advisors or scout
masters. Ileal, practical education in things
that boys should know is given, or it should
be, in a way that boys like, understand, and
will work for. Every kind of manly endeav
or from the learning of the natural plants of
the region to life saving is in the curriculum.
The boys have their choice of a long string of
subjects to study. But they must learn some
thing constructive, they must constantly im
prove thejr minds and bodies, they must do
their good turn daily, they must keep the scout
oath, an oath that could well be used in any
decent lodge, if they want to advance in scout
craft. Men who are in charge of these scouts on
Kauai should not let the organization die.
Community and district leaders who have a
chance to encourage this work should do it.
The dividends in belter boys will be worth
A measure providing for the division of the
State of Illinois has been introduced into Con
gress. The proposition is to divide the State
so that eight northern counties shall constitute
the State of Northern Illinois, and the oilier
ninety-four counties shall comprise the State
of Southern Illinois. It looks as though Chi
cago wanted to be the centre of a little world,
all her own, and that too, the richest in the
United States. However, if the people of Ill
inois desire to divide their State it is a matter
of their own concern, regardless of the fact
fact that it seems to be entirely unnecessary.
Portugal is broke and wants Uncle Sam oh,
well, there's a sort of understanding that he's
pretty well off and a little bit easy.
