Work on the Ahukinl breakwater
anil wharf Is rapidly nearlng com
pletion. The work o pouring con
crete on the now wharf is finished
and it is only necessary to lay the
floor and tracks and build the sheds
all of which It Is hoped to be finish
ed by the first of the year.
The laying of tho breakwater is
processing more slowly than the
wharf but those In charge are well
satisfied with tho work done. The
core of the breakwater has been laid.
Tho heavier stones that cover the
core have been only laid to a point
about 25 feet from shore. It will be
necessary to cover tho entire core
with this heavy stone to protect the
coro. If the laying of tho core can
bo finished by tho first of the year
it is thought that tho breakwater
can bo finished in three months.
Tho recent rough weather helped
spread the coro so as to facilitate
the laying of the outer covering and
it was evident that the swells at tho
wharf have been materially reduced
by the part of the breakwater now
in placo. It the breakwater had not
been partly finished there is no doubt
that some of the concrete forms
would have been carried away by
the heavy swells that lost their force
on the partially completed break
LEGION BALL TEAM
Lihue base ball park will be tho
scene of a gory battle next Sunday
afternoon when the American Legion
team from the indoor baseball lea'
gue will meet tho Haole team from
the same league.
The two teams have met twice be-
fore but this battle will be for blood
as a dinner to be paid for by the
losers will be tho outcome .
The Legion has defeated the Ha
oles twice during the league, and
the Haloes smarting from the taunts
of the Legionnaires about their base'
ball playing ability, challenged the
Legion to a game to be played out
doors with indoor baseball rules. The
Haloes claim that they lost too many
long base hits by the ball hitting the
rafters In the armory and they ex'
pect to run tho Legion ragged with
two baggers and home-runs when
they meet them Sunday.
The Legionnaires are very confl
dent of their ability to repeat and are
warning tho haoles that they had
better have their outfielders on hors
es or motorcycles if they ever hope
to have them retrieve the ball.
The game will be called at 3 o
clock Sunday afternoon, and the
commltttee In charge have arranged
to have two experts with adding ma
chines to keep the score.
Tho following men are eliglbl
to play in tho game: Haoles Burns

The meeting of tho Soccer Club
of Makaweli was hold on November'

in tho coming games of tho season.
Dr. Romanzo Adams of tho Unl-
vorslty of Hawaii was tho speaker
at the December meeting of tho So
cial Service association held at Mo
kihana hall, Lihue, on Saturday af
ternoon last. Taking for his subject
"Industrial Service in Hawaii in Its
Halation to ft Changing Labor Sys
tem," Dr. Adams emphasized tho
point that there could as yet bo no
set or standard program for welfaro
work, due to our changing labor sit
uation which brings us a new set of
problems every few years, and that
we must learn from practical ex
porjence and experimenting and with
open minds how to adjust our pro
ccduro to conditions. The Immediate
problem in our labor situation is
whether we are to have Chlneso la
bor brought into tho country or
whether we are to concentrate on
labor-saving devices and other
schemes for improving and retain
ing labor now here.
A condition now confronting us
is that tho older generation of la
borers Is being superceded by tho
younger, young men born in this
country and hence American citizens.
How are we to hold these young
peoplo on the plantations? The state
mont that all these boys are going
into the city, seeking the white-col
lar jobs, is hardly true, for as yet
there are very few old enough to be
seeking employment. Within six or
seven years, however, Honolulu will
have absorbed all she can of such
would-be clerks and the rest will bo
forced to enter other occupations or
leave Hawaii. How mako plantation
life attractive and worth-while enough
to hold these boys with U3?
Welfaro work on the plantations
appears to be conducted witn two
aims in view; first, to make the
worker contented, steady, satisfied to
stay by his job, considering his job
considering his present situation in
life good enough; second, to aim to
give the worker American ideals and
knowledge, to stimulate his ambition
to rise In tho world, which may ere
ato discontent, a desire for indopend'
ence. Tho flatter ideal is more con
sonant with American methods and
Christian jdcals and makes the man
himself the chief interest and not
tho industry. It is Inevitable that mat
tors will work out on this lino, with
the individual- tho chief consideration.
The problem has its psychological
as well as its economic solution. Tho
present situation in the sugar indus
try and the prospects for the future
show us that tho wages cannot be
made high enough to long meet tho
problem. In analyzing the Japanese
character, wo find that he responds
readily to a little politeness. Tho de
slro of any man, after satisfying his
hunger, is to be treated as worth
while. Wo must make labor more
dignified and work with the hands
respected. Wo can accomplish this
by developing our community life
and letting each man feel that he is
a factor in it, that his position is a
worthy one, and that tho opportuni
ties for his children are hero. The
schools can do much in inculcating
tho right attltudo toward labor, In
teaching tho child to respect his fath
er's job, in helping tho father to
seo that there is something In life
for his child besides the daily grind
of "hanahana," in contering our at
tention not on far-away things but
on the life hero and to-day, in show
ing us how to get culture out of the
nearby things. There is also an emo
tional aspect to tho solution of the
problem. Wo naturally idealize our
homes and our own country. Our own
homo should be to us "God's coun
try." Wo should aim to make theso
peoplo lovo their homes, fooling
themselves stablo factors in their
own communities and assured of dig
nity, security and courtesy In their

erty that thoy had a knowledge of
tho previous deed. This deed was giv
en five years nfter tho first deed.
