CHAN'tSE IX KAUAI SCHEDULE
We acknowledge receipt of your com
munication dated March Uth enclosing
letter to you from Mr. T. K. Longstreth,
postmaster at Lihue. relative to the
present mail schedule between Honolulu
In reply, we wish to say that the
Chamber of Commerce of Kauai has al
erady taken up this matter with us and
we have advised them that the matter
of a possible change in schedule is now
being considered by us.
We believe that it is not necessary
for us to go into the different matters
referred to in Mr. Loiigsireth's letter,
except to take objection 1o the remarks
contained in his letter to the effect that
the matter had been taken up with us
by the Kauai Chamber of Commerce
We are sufficintly acquainted with
conditions governing the operation of
steamboats to know that it is not possi
ble to rearrange ami entire schedule ov
ernight, and we wish to assure you that
the matter of the change is having our
attention and will be brought before you
in due time.
Yours very truly,
IXTEIi -ISLAND STEAM NAY. CO., Ltd.

Perhaps the Inter-Island is right. Pos
sibly a change in boat schedules cannot be
made over night. Hut it seems to us that
some sort of change could be made in less
than two months, the lime they have had
to make a change, if thev wanted to.

The report of the hist supervisors' meet
ing contained the following extract, "A re
quest from Mr. Englehard, post commander,
Kauai American Legion, to remodel' the arm
ory at Hie American Legion's expense; the
plans and specifications to be drawn to the
entire satisfaction of the county road super
visor, and with the permission of the board,
the said county road supervisor to act as
inspector to see that Hie plans art; faithfully
carried out by the contractor, was read and
by unanimous vole granted."
The American Legion deserves the great
est credit for this work. The armory is about
the only place of ils kind in Lihue where in
door baseball, basketball ami similar games
may be played. As it now stands the pillars
support ing the roof -are in the way. The roof
is too low. This seriously interferes with
whatever spoi'ts are being carried on.
With these posts removed and the roof
raised the armory will make an ideal com
munity center for such games. The, public
will have a place where it can watch good
games. Sportsmanship will be encouraged.
Ami the American Legion will not prof
it any more from the change than will any
other group of sports loving people. The ar
mory will be just as free and as open to ev
c r y o u e I s e as it no w i s. A u d
so the Legion's move deserves special credit
and special praise.

ter than they are now moving, the recording

A coal strike is on and the iron business
is off. Other industries will slacken for need

to buy coal there will be no need of digging
it, and the miners can rest.
It is safe to say that never in all its
history has Kauai had the opportunity to
liear such an artist or such u musical pro
gram as was its privilege to hear last Fri
day night. Josef Kcliwnrz, world famous bari
tone, whose name on a program is enough
1o draw the greatest crowds of metropolitan
music lovers, is the man to whom Kauai is
indebted for this womlerful program.

Kauai is to have two fairs within the
next fortnight. On Saturday, May 2()lh. Ke
alia is having a community fair to provide
funds for the carrying on of its welfare work.
On next Saturday, May' '27, Lihue gives a
comity fair. The proceeds are to be used
in buying additional chairs for the armory.
lioth fairs are being given for good pur
poses. It is hoped that the island as a whole
will support both and make them as suc
cessful as thev deserve 1o be.

Kauai Goes Over The Top
With 194 members enrolled in the
National Education Association
when there are only 1S7 public 3chool
teachers on Kauai, this island went
over the top last week In percent
age of membership, bnsed upon the
number of teachers. The additional
seven members are Y. W. C. . wor
kers, ministers and private school
teachers who are eligible to become
members. One hundred per cent
membership would have satisfied
those in charge, but 104 per cent was
registered, and it is expected that
Kauai's representative will be a .dele
gate at large to represent the Ha
waii Education Association i'l Boa-
ton in July.
Miss Elsie Wilcox Is the unani
mous choice of the teachers to re
present them at the convention in
Ronton, but if Kauai's 104 per cent
Is enough to secure for it the right
to have a delegate at large, Mrs.
K. C. Ahana wfll go along. 1
At a meeting of the Kauai Teach
ers Association held at the high
school on Friday. May 12, at which
Miss Elsie Wilcox, school commis
sioner, Miss Bernice Hundley, sup
ervising principal, and Mr. Pugli, in
dustrial supervisor, were present,
reports were submitted by nil those
present from teachers in their district.
These reports are on the subject
of a revision of the course of study
in Hawaii's schools and will be com
piled and presented to the school
commissioners at their next meeting
