Every year a number of new peo

caseH met, so to speak, with wide
open arms and hospitably treated.
This" treatment has made Kauai and
There may be, at times, some
question in the mind of the people
who do these favors as to whether
or not the courtesies are appreciated.
But the following letter sent by six
teachers from one Kauai town to the
department of public instruction
should dispel any such fears:
To the Editor of the Hawaiian Edu
From the deepest gratitude we
write this public testimony to the
unexpected and very generous wel
come the six coast teachers received
on Kauai No one can fully appre
ciate the pleasure that we felt unless
she too has been a coast girl plung

ily adaptable circumstances of a
teacher in a plantation school of the
From the moment we crossed the
landing place at Nawiliwili where we
were met by some kindly citizens
with cars, and given the best break
fast obtainable at one of the local
hotels; until we crossed the thresh
hold of the cottage which was to be
our home for the next year, we
have felt welcome and wanted. But
more especially when we entered
the cottage did we see evidences on
every side of the thoughtfulness of
the men and women. The interior
of the cottage had been freshly
painted, the necessary furniture had
been made the previous school year
by the manual training boys and
nicely stained during the summer,
the windows shone clear and were
hung with dainty curtains and the
dressers and tables were fitted out
with covers to match. The kitchen
was almost completely equipped with
the needed utensils and there was a
very complete set of tasteful and
very pretty dishes; all of which the
girls especially appreciate.
From the outset of the school
year we have been called upon by
the women of the plantation and we
really have felt an enthusiasm for
entering into community affairs as
Superintendent MacCaughey urges us
to do. The clean and dainty appear
ance of our cottage as we explored
it made us long to do the best we
could for the boys and girls whose
parents had been so thoughtful of us
who were almost strangers to them.
Since all these things have been done
for our comfort we feel that it
would be the least we could do in re
turn to give their boys and girls the
best we have of ourselves, our ideals
and our advantages from the states.
And not a little has been added to
this enthusiasm by the quick and
ready response of the boys and

DORMITORY Hl-Y CONDUCTS
In a special meeting last Wednes
day evening the spirit of Thanksgiv
ing was participated in by the Dor
mitory Hi-Y club members in a pro
gram of song and musical selections
and a very interesting talk by Mrs.
H. Rogers of the Kauai high school,
portraying the advent of the Pilgrim
Fathers in America and the priva
tions that tested their fortitude and
faith in the purpose for which they
had left their homes for the un
known country. It was an evening
greatly enjoyed by all present.
KOLOA FILIPINO CLUB HOLDS
A full attendance of the Koloa
Filipino Y Club enjoyed a program
of music and talks last Friday even
ing in the Japanese school house.
"America" was sung for the open

was given by Rev. R. A. Hall.
Well chosen selections of patriot
ic and other music by the string

upplause and many recalls from the
Vice President Ignacio Jummoau,
gave a convincing talk on "Why We
Need a Club" and outlined various
ways by which the organization is
