DO YOUR DUTY AS A C1T1ZEX
Judge William C. Achi Jr., lias resolved .
that in the future every citizen called for
jury service shall render that service unless
they have a mighty good reason Up being ex
cused therefrom. "Jury service is a public
duly devolving alike upon each and every citi
zen legally qualified to act as such " says his
honor in a statement appearing in another
The statement referred to has heen call
ed forth because of the unwillingness of
many of our prominent, citizens to serve as
jurors, and the sending or bringing in of all
kinds of excuses as to why they cannot serve.
As Judge Achi says, jury service is a
public duly, especially so with our citizens
who have the advantage of an education and
business training. fn(r they, beyond all others
are capable of forming an intelligent jury.
Judge Achi is certainly right in the stand
he has taken.

Furthering its plan of making the entire
territory its campus, the University of Ha
waii sent Prof. David L. Crawford, head of
the extension department, to Kauai last week
to plan for the year's program. Prof, (.'raw
ford isitcd many men and schools and made
tentative plans fu future work.
The university desires to give Kauai
what the Harden Islanders want and nee(l
most. It is up to the Kauaians to decile
which of the university's many branches they
want most and to ask for them.
Last year the university sent a number
of agricultural men hwe to talk to the farm
ers and to offer practical suggestions. If Ihe
fanners want this program repeated they
need but ask for it. They should write to
the university telling what their problems
are and asking for experts iit those branches
to help them. If insects destroy the crops,
ask for the entomologists; if general agricul
t u real information is needed, send for IVof.
llinke or Prof. Krauss; if the economics of
the situation is puzzling. I'rof. Adams should
be able to give some valuable pointers.
The university has brandies other than
agriculture that Kauai can get, too. There
is no doubt but that some of the domestic
science instructors would come over if the
ladies asked for them. If the people want
to know how the leprosy cure was worked
out, undoubtedly Dr. Dean or Dr. Wrenshall,
who is associated with Dr. Dean in this con
nection will come and tell about it.
That university is part ours. We are
paying taxes for it. We are entitled to its
service. And the officers of the institution
want us to have it. So, let's not be bashful.
If there's something we want, let's ask for it.

In making purchases for household and
personal use, many Kauai people act with
careful deliberation. Yet it is a busy world
and a great many things are done without
much thought or planning. It will frequent
ly happen that the idea will suddenly occur
to a person that they need certain merchan
dise, and the impulse to go and get it at once
is acted upon.
How is the decision as to where to trade
reached in such cases? Some would say that
the piircahscr would go to the nearest store,
but that is not t lie usual governing influence
in these times. The desire to make the best
bargain has become very powerful in recent
months, and even when they are hurried,
peojde like to hunt up the best place to buy
what they want.
From some little source back in the mind
some kind of a suggestion occurs that such
and such a place would be the best fur that
purchase. But what creates the suggestion?
In a majority of instances it is created by
the store that has made a constant effort
to impress itself on' the minds of the peo
jde. Such is the case in all aspects of thot,
for peojde remember the things ihey hear
ovtf and over again, and they f.rgei the
things they rarely hear about. The adver
tised store impresses itself on the public
mind by constantly rejieating an idea. When
you ask your mental faculties to tell you
where would he the best jilace to make a pur
chase Ihey respond with the idea that has
been most constantly impressed upon them.
The stores that keep themselves in the pub
lie mind by steady advertising are the stores
that are only the first ones thought; of when
it is necessary to make a purchase, but they
are the stores longest remembered.
Most of the delegates at ihe disarmament
conference want lo bury the hatchet with
the handle slicking out.
The times are hard. It is more difficult
for Kauaians to chase the jesky wolf from
the door than it has been for ycivrs. Rut
there is not a person on the Garden Isltnul
that isn't well fed and clothed. So it is hard
for us to realize that a few miles rom us
peojde are literally starving to death.
"Starving to death'' is a phrase used so
often that the real, the awful meaning of Ihe
thing may not strike us. Rut the jieojde who
heard Miss Farrington tell of the poop souls
who are dying that way, who are suffering
untold agonies because they have nothing to
eat and can get nothing; the people who
heard her tell of the little emaciated baby
trying to draw some nourishment from the
withered breast of its mother who had starv
ed and starved until she died; the people
who heard her say that the little baby had
lo stay there too and starve because so many
others were being fed on so little that not.
another person could be given a bite to eat
those peojde will again give to the Armenian
relief. Their jiocketbooks may be a little
flatter than ever, but just the same, they will
Many Kauai citizens recall that it has
not been so very long ago that when a man
reached forty he was supjosed to be putting
on black and begin thinking how best to
sjiend his declining days. At sixty men were
called ujion to be counsellors for the young,
and if they reached eighty they became some
thing in the shape of a curiosity.
But gone are the days when the skull
caps and canes were the companions of three
score and ten. The present conception of liv

Ami it gives the most of us a great deal of
consolation. For there seems to be more in
life to live for since one knows that he isn't
going to he classed as down and out and on
Ihe shelf at ;"0. It also enables us to jut a
little more sunshine into life and to enjoy
that sunshine which others put into our liv

pleasure out of knowing that the man was
