VOTE FOR THE MAN
"I'm a Republican (or a Democrat) but
I always vote for the man rather than the
party, especially in local politics. Of course
in voting for the President, if I had a vote,
I would vote for my party's choice."
That is what about nine men out of ten
will tell you when you ask them what they
are, Republican or Democrat? And while
party affiliation and party loyalty is a thing
to be recommended, it is also well to exam
ine the character of the man running for
In this little examination let us first
take a peep at the parties, and at ourselves.
What party has always favored a tariff on
sugar? What party has always opposed a
protective tariff and advocated free trade,
making competition with others producers
neceKHary, even when the competition had
a strangle hold upon our industries, especial
ly on our sugar industry? The first answer
is the Republican party.' The second is the
Democratic party. ,
Taking a little self inspection now -do
we need protection? Can we eompete on
equal terms with such a sugar producing
country as Cuba where labor and costs of
production are cheaper? The answers are
evident. We can not compete on equal terms
with such countries as Cuba. We deserve and
need the protection that the Republican par
ty has always advocated for and given to us.
The Democratic party now has three
candidates in the field seeking to be elected
delegate to Congress. The Republican party
has one candidate, Harry A. Baldwin. And
as much as Hawaii needs Republican prin
ciples and Republican protection, and, by the
way, don't forget that the Republican party
is now in power in Washington and is able
to give that help, it is worth while for a
moment to forget the party and look at the
Without considering the candidates indi
vidually, not a one of the Democratic candi
dates has had the training and the experi
ence that Mr. Baldwin has had, and that so
perfectly fits him for the hard task before
the delegate to Congress. Mr. Baldwin's edu
cation, business experience, and ability should
place him ahead of the other candidates, ev
en though he were not a member of the party
in power. But considering all these points,
there is no comparison of the qualifications
of the men. There is not the slightest reason
why any man or woman, Republican or Dem
ocrat, should hesitate to vote for the man
that nawaii needs in Congress, Harry A.
In spite of hard times, Kauai seems to
be on the upgrade. She is getting a new
breakwater that will materially help in her
shipping. New buildings are going up, wher
ever there is room for new buildings, and
new enterprises and enterprising new men
are constantly coming to our shores.
Lihue is due for considerable expansion.
With the new wharf and her central location,
both geopraphically and in relation to ship
ping, she has every right to expect a normal,
healthy, growth that will, in a very few years
double her population and her enterprises.
But there is one serious drawback. At
present there is little available space on
which to locate new enterprises. There is
plenty of space, as good land with as fine
a location as could le desired, but it is so
closely held that no one can buy a piece of
it on which to put up new buildings for new
People or institutions' that have property
here have every right in the world to keep
the property in the same condition that it is
now held if they waut to. They got the land
honestly. They paid a fair price for it when
they bought it. And there is no law that cau
make them ojten it up for ordinary business
or residential purposes.
But it might be a good thing, both from
a business and patriotic standpoint, to do.
A half acre of land situated in a prosperous,
growing, thriving, community is worth more
than an acre in a dead or dying locality.
And Lihue is not cramped for business
sites only. Many people have been kept
away from here in the past few years be
cause they could uot get a house to live in
or a place to build a house. There are places
for nice, new residential sections, too. But
it is mighty hard to buy them.
Isn't this proposition worth some seri
ous thought? Wouldn't it, after all, be a
wise move to open up'a little and let Lihue
SEE KAUAI FIRST
Not one person in a hundred, of all Ka
uai's population, has ever seen the beautiful
Kalalau part of the island. Those steep pre
cipices, the sheer drops of thousands of feet
from the crags to the sea, verdant valleys
and the wonderful beaches, have, heretofore,
been seen by the adventurous only. For it
is quite a hard thing to get in nnd out of
For several months a number of Garden
Islanders have been agitating a trip around
the islnud. Many people were interviewed
nnd asked if they would like to make a lit
tle boat journey around the whole island if
the Inter-Island folks would send a boat up
here to make the trip. The answer usually
was, "I certainly would."
The Inter-Island was interviewed. It has
finally promised that it will send the Klnau
up here and will take passengers around the
island providing 125 tickets are sold for the
excursion not later than April 3rd.
So, if you want to take this trip, be
sure to order your ticket from Mr. Pickard
at Nawiliwili before April 3rd. And it might
be well for you to prod your neighbor along
a little too. He or she may make just the ne
cessary number to get the boat. DO IT NOW!
IF PEOPLE WOULD ONLY OBSERVE TEE
RULES OF THE ROAD
Last week we suggested what we thought
should be done to make "Calamity Corner"
safe and fool-proof. In talking the matter
over personally with n. D. Wishard, chair
man of the Board of Supervisors, he stated
that there was merit in our suggestion, but
that it seemed a shame to have to put ob
structions in the road at these corners, when,
IF PEOPLE WOULD ONLY OBSERVE
THE RULES OF THE ROAD THERE
WOULD BE NO NEED OF IT!
There is the whole thing in a nutshell:
people would only observe the rules of the
road. If tliey would only use a little common
sense ninety-five per cent of automobile acci
dents would never occur.
A great many people who drive cars seem
to think that by holdiing out their hand to
signal that they are going to turn a corner
gives them absolute right of way and reliev
es them of all responsibility if an accident
should occur. Such is not the case. It is up
to the driver to keep his eyes open, keep his
car under absolute control so that if the way
is not clear, he can stop his car and avoid
For the benefit of the public, we are
publishing on another page a few rules of
the road, that, if followed, will go far to
ward making our roads safe to drive upon,
and will result in fewer accidents.
HERE'S A WARNING
United States health officials are sending
broadcast a warning against the growing care
lessness now that, spring is approaching and
subjecting yourself to sudden changes of
iemici-ature. The return of the flu in a u.ild
form has been noted in several sect ions an 1
we need only recall the terrible death list,
of a few years ago to remind us that it is
a scourge to be shunned. Open weather at
this season invites colds and pneumonia, and
a weakened s ystem is very apt to contract
a case of flu. the most deadly lung trouble
known. Guard well the ventilation of your
office, store, shop or home. Take Uncle Sam's
advice and steer clear of stuffy rooms. Get
all the fresh air you can, but dress com
fortably anil avoid unnecessary exposure. All
if this is easy to do far easier than to pay
doctor bills or leave a lot of relatives and
frineds to mourn your carelessness.
CO-OPERA 77 VE BUILDING
The solution of the housing problem is
in co ojierative building. There are towns and
cities in the United States that have tried
this plan with satisfactory results. An or
ganization of citizens to any number, the
more the better, agree to pay into the treas
ury of the association a fixed sum monthly.
As soon as sufficient capital has accumulated
the building of a house is begun, and when
it is completed it is sold and the proceed
turned into the treasury, and then another
house is started. It does not take long to ac
cumulate a capital that makes builcir.g op
erations lively, and these houses are sold up
on ta.vy payment terms the sale is quickly
aiH advantageously made.
If Mother Eve had been as wise as some
of her daughters what a fool she would have
made of that snake.

A Bath Tub Doesn't
Have To Go Anywhere
Did you ever wonder why there are four feet
on a bath tub? It doesn't have to go anywhere.
The builders of the PEMBROKE Bath Tub
tried to figure it out and couldn't. So the PEM
BROKE was made without feet. And it created
an immediate impression of solidity, cleanliness
and beauty. The PEMBROKE built-in tub affords
no chance for dirt to accumulate. It is flunh
with floor and walls. PEMBROKE built in tubs
are the last word in bath room efficiency, com
fort and beauty.
