DRIVER IS FINED
Watching a man change his tire
may bo all right under somo condl
tlona, but K. Shimonishl of Eleelo is
ready to swear that there are times
whon it pays to attend strictly to
one's own business. Watching the
said chango was the main reason,
Shimonishl says, that ne had to pay
?:!"( and costs to a hardhnrtod
Judge and had to glveup nis driving
llccnso for a year.
It all happened last Thursday ut
Eleelo. It. A. Balester, manager of
the McBrydo Store, was leaving his
placo of business to go homo for
dinner. He know that autos had a
careless way of going by Mis placo
without watching tho road very close
ly, so ho was clear off tho road,
walking In tho grass.
Another autolst had a blow out,
in front of the store and was chang
ing his tire. K. Shimonishl came a
long just at that time in Bulck car
Number 944, which ho had rented
from Watase at Hanapepe. Chang
ing a tiro was evidently a great
novelty to Shimonishl, because he
decided that it was moro worth
while to watch tho process than to
look ahead at the road. And yet he
didn't caro to stop his car or to
Mr. Balester saw the car coming
and tried to avoid it. Ho dodged to
the right, but ho was not as speedy
as tho car. So the Bulck knocked
him down, ran over him and drag
ged him along the road about 30
feet before the car could bo stopped.
Mr. Balester was considerably in
jured and bruised and had to bo
taken to the Eleelo hospital for med
ical attention. His Injuries, however
were not serious.
Dr. A. R. Glaisyer, complaint offi
cer of the Kauai Automobile Club
reported tho affair to tho secretary
of tho club. It was then reportod
to tho sheriff's department, where
action was taken. As a result, Shi
monishl was given the $25 fine,
forced to pay the costs and had his
license revoked for one year.
With tho Kauai Automobile club
now actively functioning.boosting for
better and more careful driving and
reporting, through its complaint of
ficers, all traffic .violations to the
police, motoring is becoming a safer
proposition on this island. All mem
bers of tho club and others, should
report violations to tho complaint
officors, who will take them up with
tho proper authorities. Tho com
plaint officers are:
Georgo It. Stewart, Jr., Walmea.
E. L. Damkroger, Makawell.
Dr. A. It. Glaisyer, Kalahao.
Paul Kahlbaum, Koloa.
E. F. Wood, Lihuo.
Albert Horner, Jr., Kapaa.
Itay Allen, Kilauea.
There are yet a number of motor
ists on tho island who havo not
joined tho club. Every auto driver
on tho island except rent service
drivers is invited to join and help
keep our roads safe.
TELEPHONE RATES RAISED
Last Friday morning tho Public
Utilities Commission granted tho Ka
uai Telephonic Co., permission to
temporarily raise their rates ono
dollar a phone a month. The In
crease Is to take placo October 1st
and to last for three months.
This will increase tho homo tele
phone rates on this island from flvo
dollars to six dollars a month. Tho
telephone company made its claims
on tho grounds of higher expenses,
making a profit impossible at tho
old rates. They also intend to put
In a number of new improvements.
Owing to tho fact that tho demand
Is greater than tho supply, Mr. Ek
lund has been unable to deliver
Dodge cars as fast as he sells them.
He recently sold two of tho now
series Dodge and Is waiting patient
ly to mako delivery to tho buyers.
L. B. Borelko returned to Honolulu
today. Until two years ago Mr.

Patten Co., of Honolulu and expects

within tho next two months.

painfully injured when tho Ford
he was driving plunged off tho road
near Walhiwa last Tuesday and turn
ed over twice before stopping a
galnst a largo bouldor. HIrano was
driving with a friend when ho decided
that ho would llko to drlvo a while.
They did not think it necessary
to stop tho car to change places
but they would do It on tho fly, as
It were. It turned out that thoro
was no ono driving tho car and
ithoy both mado a grab for the wheel
and evidently the two minds had
more than a stnglo thought, for tho
first thing oither ono know, tho Fonl
was off the road and started on Its
roll. HIrano was painfully bruised
and scratched but his friend escaped
with minor bruises.
Changing seats in a car whllo mov

of tho last school year, assures us
that that It will bo well and efflci

Tho dormitory boys do a certain
amount of work around tho (5ormi

tho compensation for their board
and room. But thoy aro not kont
at that all tho time. And there is a
large number of them that aro a-

gardening and similar tasks.
In any group of boys or men thero
aro always somo who can and will
do much moro nud better work than
others. Tho "others" in the Li
hue dormitory are much in tho min
ority this year.
Somo garages advertise, "all work
guaranteed." That is exactly tho
basis of the work done by tho dormi
tory boys this year. Theso bovs aro
to get credit for the outside work
they dp. The. object of tho high
school Is to develop moro men who
can do high class work, and that
work is not necessarily of tho "white
collar" variety. Professor Dolllng
er has had a number of credit cards
printed for homo worlc.
The employer must O. K. this
card before the boy can get school
credit for tho work ho does. If tho
work is not satisfactory, no credit
Is given. Tho principal soon finds
out which boys are doing poor work,
and then then tho boys improves
The boys are not tho only ones
that get credit for home work. Tho
high school girls are expected to
do outside home work too. When
the people want girls to- help do
general hdusowork, outside of .school
hours, or to help wuit on tables for
dinner parties, thoy call tho high
school principal and tell him what
thoy want. Tho school keeps a list
of availablo girls and reccomonds
tho right girl for tho job. Tho em

their work after night.
Khan Mac Caughoy, superintendent
of public instruction.
Five of these junior high schools
aro to bo In session tills year. Thoy
aro at Ilonomakau, Ronawaena, and
Honokaa, Hawaii, at Lahaina, Maui,
nnd at Walmea, Kauai. It is hoped
to establish similar schools at Ewa
and Waialua, this island, tho fol
Tho junior high school organiza
tion brings together the pupils of
tho seventh, eighth and ninth grades
and offers high school subjects to
thoso of all grades under high school
systems. It makes possible tho se
curing of teachers of more specializ
ed training than is tho same case In
tho usual grade schools. Depart
mental work with tho high school
studies Is a distinctivo feature.
Junior high schools aro rapidly
becoming a typical form of organ
ization In the mainland whero ex
perience shows that pupils nro there
by interested in the moro advanc
ed studies and aro Induced to
remain in school longer than form
erly with a greater proportion con
tinuing through tho senior high
schools. Pupils nro also ablo to
remain at homo for a longer period
of their schooling in districts whero
these schools nro located.
By withdrawing the seventh nnd
eighth grado classes from tho grado
schools overcrowded conditions nro
relieved. Pupils who expect to be
come teachers will bo much better
fitted for their normal training.
Now buildings have been erected
at Kohala and Kona-waonn, Hawaii,
for this now department of Instruc
tion. Buildings already In uso havo
been adapted to tho needs of tho
junior high Bchools In other locations.
