Public Invited to
The Legion Ball
Tho stago Is all sot for tho Le
gion's "Night In tho Orient" Ball
that Is to bo held at the Lihue ar
mory next Saturday evening.
Owing to tho fact there aro somo
rumor floating around that only Lu-
glon members were to attend tho
dance, tho committee wishes to an
nounce that tho public h Invited
and to Insure tho fact that everyone
can attend, thoro will bo fifty ex
tra tickets on sale at tho door the
evening of tho dance. This was done
as it was bellovcd that many had
not tried to buy tickets as they
were under the Impression that tho
party was for Legionnaires only.
It was first decided to limit the
number of tickets to 200, but the
demand has been so great has op
ened up tho salo of tho 50 mora
which will be placed an sale at the
door. To sell thoso GO tickets It was
necessary for the decoration com
mltteo to change their plans materi
ally as thoy had planned decorations
that would take up considerable
floor space. Now these will bo done
away with and it will make room
for additional couples.
Tho change in the decoration
scheme will not change tho original
plan of making the armory Into an
oriental court but will necessitate
the elimination of original plans for
seating the crowd.
Work on the pageant Is practic
ally complete as the committee on
costumes turned In the last one
to the chairman, James Bodrero,

will bo held at the armory on Fri

A TAX EXPERT ON KAUAI
John Linden, tax expert of tho
Amorican Factors, is on Kauai at
present auditing tho hooka of tho
binuo t'lantatlon Co.
for Bids for the
County engineer, Robert F. Mid
dleton Is advertising in this week's
Garden Island for bids for the now
Kokeo rond It is tlfe Intention to
start work nt tho earliest possible
moment on this project and rush
it to the earliest possible comple
tion. There Is somewhat less than ?30,
000 available at tho present for this
work. To meet this condition nnd
still not delay tho work, Mr. Mid
dleton Is advertising for bids in sec
tions. It. is tho Intention to grade
the road from the main government
road, to the top of the cane fields,
a distance of about two miles. All
tho detours will bo graded above
this point, cutting out nil the. bad
grades, reducing them to not more
than seven degrees. Some of them
aro now much more than that. There
will he about three and a half miles
of thu detours to grade.
After all this grading is done,
there will not be a great deal of
money left for macadamizing. But
it is estimated that there will be
sufficient to macadamize from tho
main, road to tho main irrigation
ditch. This will make the worst
parts of this road passable In all
kinds of weather.
To get an idea of how much money-
will bo required for tho entire
job, tho engineer Is asking for bids
for six separate operations. They
1. The grading of tho entire road
from the main government road to
tho top at Puukapele.
2. Grading from the main road to
tho main ditch.
3. Grading from the main ditch to
the top of the cane bolt.
1. Grading all tho detours, level
ing them to about seven degrees,
mauka of the top of tho cano fields.
G. Grading from the top of tho
cane fields to the end of tho rond
at Puukapele exclusive of all detours.
C. Macadamizing from tho main
government road to the main irriga
tion ditch, a distance of about one
