' MAKAWELI SCHOOL
School opened September 12th with
more pupils than we had at the close
of school in June. We were pleased to
see all children on time, neatly dress
ed and ready for work. This shows
that the mothers are interested as
well as the children and the teach
ers. All of us working together can
make our school one of the best in
Several of the teachers did not
come at the beginning of school but
the ladles of Makawell very kindly
offered to help us out. This was a
real help, which we appreciated.
Mrs. Marcallino was detained in
Honolulu because of her baby's ill
ness. However, she arrived the sec
ond week of school.
The new members of our teaching
Miss Anna Scott, Washington.
Miss Alice Covert, California.
Miss Margaret Thomson, Texas.

The athletics started oft with a
snap both in the boys and girls' teams.
Mr. Damkroger is directing this and
has appointed Mr. Fernandes to take
charge of the boys while Miss Scott
will assist the girls.
Although we are disappointed not
to be in our new school building,
still we would not be sportsmanlike
if we did not put forth more efforts
because of unfavorable conditions.
This let us all do and have a fine
school in spite of old buildings.
Two new cottages have been erect
ed on the new grounds and Mr. Fer
nandes and the boys are busy get
ting out hedges, grass and flowers.
The very first day our public school
opened, September 12th, a regular
program of physical education started
similar to previous years, under the
supervision of Mr. Damkroger. Phy
sical exercises are given daily as well
as supervised athletics and games.
The playground ball schedule, put
out by the Kauai Public School Ath

During the month the schedules of
playground ball were run off, two for
the boys and one for the girls. The
school teams will be chosen from
ing for the construction and purchase
of three big seaplanes which he plans
to operate between the islands. On
the eve of his departure from Honolu
lu, Mr. Palmerston declared emphat
ically that the inter-Island airplane
service would be inaugurated in the
The following statement of Mr.
Palmerston's plans is taken from .the
Pasadena Star-News and the Pasa
dena Evening Post of recent date:
"Airplanes built in Pasadena are
to be put on inter-Island service in
the Hawaiian islands, according to
C. C. Palmerston, who returned to
Pasadena from Honolulu yesterday.
Mr. Palmerston spent two months in
a survey of the possibilities of an
airplane line connecting the islands
of Hawaii, Maui, Oahu and Kauai. He
is probably convinced of the profit
able operation of airplanes in this ser
vice, and intends to use flying boats
designed by G. Edward Barnhart and
manufactured at the West Green-st.
factory of Barnhart Aircraft, Inc.
"A very complete system of air
transportation has been worked out
by Mr. Palmerston, with Honolulu as
the main port. One route is planned
to be flown from Honolulu to Hilo
with intermediate stops, another
flight will be to Nawlliwili on the Is
land of Kauai from Honolulu, while a
third will make a scenic tour of the
"Mr. Palmerston went to Hawaii to
look into tho feasibility of establish
ing a line of flying boats for passen
ger and express transportation. De-
fore leaving Pasadena he secured the
plans of new airplanes designed by
G. E .Barnhart of this city, and laid
his plans on a special basis worked
out by Mr. Barnhart and C. Robert
Little, the builder of the "Wampus
Kat" bl-plane. Mr. Palmerston went
over all -possible routes and spent two
months in securing data. He return
ed enthusiastic over the practical fea
tures of a main airline between Hono
lulu and Hilo and secondary routes
to other island points, and is arrang
ing his plans for the purchase of three
"These will be especially built for
the Hawaiian service, and each equip
ped with two Hall-Scott motors of 250
horsepower. They will carry a pilot
and engineer and eight passengers
with luggage and mail matter. The
hulls will be of the most approved fly
ing boat type with large cabins for
the passengers. Several safety feat
ures devised by Mr. Barnhart and
providing for elimination of any dan
ger from fire, a greater stability in
rough weather and much longer lifo
of the engines, will be in the equip
ment, and each machine will be cap
able of flying 125 miles on one en
gine alone. The longest flight to be
made will be about 200 miles, which
wil lbe made in less than three hours,
although eighteen to twenty hours are
now required on the steamboat lino.
No sustained flight of more than 80
miles will be required, so that the
airplanes will have plenty of reserve
even if compelled to fly on but one
of the two engines."
COMING TO KAUAI
In a short time, according to C. C.
Palmerston, residents of Kauai can
eat their breakfast on the Garden Is
land and then be In Honolulu by the
time the banks open in the morn
ing.. No more seasickness, no more
night rides. Simply a little joy ride
In the morning and we are sporting
along Fort street.
Palmerston has just spent a couple
of months in Honolulu and is now
back in California getting his planes,
according to the Star-Bulletin. Hero
