THE GARDEN ISLAND, TUESDAY, OCTOBER 18, 1921
Rrts nnnunlly destroy over $200,
000,000 worth of stored footf stuffs,
grain, field crops and other mater

of the U. S. Department of Agricul
ture In Inaugurating Its campaign
against rodents thruout the eastern
United States. Only the combined
efforts of home owners and ten
ants can effect the abolition of these
pests. Not merely p.re rats respon

but they dissiminate many diseases,
chief being the dref.ded bubonic
Much already has been accomplish
ed in the matter of control in the
western and middle western states,
where effective co-operation was se
cured. On the other hand, residents
of the eastern and southern states
as a rule have been so long expos
ed to widespread ravages and attacks
from rodents that they are prone
to accept them as a matter of
course. Uncle Sam is doing his ut
most to awaken these sections to
the need for eradicating rats.
To illustrate, the enormous dam

In grain and corn fields, the experi
ence of the state penitentiary farm
covering 2.C00 acres at Baton Rouge,
La., is of Interest. Last year a 200
acre field of corn was planted on
this farm. The rats worked their
way through the field, stealing all
the seed before the seed could ger
minate. The field was planted a second
time, and again the rats overran the
prospective cornfield, leaving in
their wake paths of destruction. Un
deterrad the farm manager planted
the field to corn a third time, and
ultimately secured a poor .stand,
which resulted in the production of
about one-third of a normal corn
This year, just before planting, a
drive on the rats was organized, fol
lowing methods recommended by the
Biological Survey. Convict labor was
used in distributing the poison bait
over the entire 2,500 acre tract and
as a consequence the place was
practically freed of rats. As a direct
result of this rat eradication drive
the farm this year secured from a
single planting an excellent stand of
corn that bears indications of an
early harvest of a good crop. New

THE MAKEES BREAK
EVEN IN MAUI GAMES
The Makee team broke even on
their trip to Maui .winning two games
and losing two. They lost the first
two games, one to the Hilo Chinese
by the score of 6-3, and the second
game to the All-Maul team by the
score of 7-3. Errors at a critical time
was the cause of Makee's defeat. The
Makee players were plainly nervous
in the firet two games. Cummings and
Tilly were the pitchers of the first
They settled down in the last two
games and played good baseball. With
Mitsumoto pitching, they defeated the
Hilo Chinese by the score of G-4. The
final game against the AU-Maui team
was a walk-away for the local boys
as they hammered three Maui pitch'
ers out of the box. The final score
was 13-4. Tilly pitched air-tight ball
and would have had a shut-out but for
the errors of the infield.
This showing is enough to make lo
cal fans believe that the class of base
ball on Kauai is at least equal to the
baseball played on the other islands
Local fans are proud o fthe showing
of the Makee team and are confident
that with little more experience away
from home, they would have come
back with a much better record.
