OPENING OF THE
THE COUNTY FAIR
"The First, Annual Kauai County Fair"
was a big success. Not that the fair was real
ly the first annual, but it must be. . The idea
is so good, the response was so hearty, the
exhibits so excellent and the start so auspi
cious that an annual fair for Kauai is fully
The idea and much of the work was Sher
iff "Wm. II. Hice's. He got the fair up, nom
inally to raise money for supplying the arm
ory with chairs, really to see if an annual
fair on Kauai would be a worth-while pro
ject. Both, the nominal and real objects were
obtained. Enough money was made to buy
the chairs. And Kauai has proved that it
can support a first class fair.
This must be supported by the entire
county. The Kauai Planters' Association,
the Chandler of Commerce and such organiza
tions must back the proposition fr all they
are worth. And if they do we can have just
as good a fair as Maui ever did or ever will
PUBLIC SCHOOL ATHLETIC 'S
Kauai has some embryonic athletes. They
are not so embryonic either, judging by the
records made at the annual meet last Sat
urday. In the course of three years this meet
has grown from a kindergarten-like affair to
a track meet that would make many high
school meets look pale. Many really good,
records were made and as gootl sportsman
ship was displayed by the children as is to
be found in any meet.
Athletics train the children tit play the
game hard and fairly. It teaches them that,
whoever wins, good sportsmanship pays. It
teaches them to fight all the way thru until
the last lap is passed, the goal reached.
That annual track meet is an investment
in future good citizenship. The teachers and
the children' are all to be congratulated on
the good start that has been made and encour
aged to put even more into the proposition
in the futuure.
On May 24th, the first annual Founders
Day of the new Kauai Library was celebrated
on the site of the new building. The occasion
was the birthday of the man, Albert K. Wil
cox, in whose memory the structure is to be
The services were simple and beautiful.
They were a fitting commemoration of the
life of the man whoso memory is perpetuat
d by this public institution. As long as the
stone building lasts, which will be for gen
erations to come, the Founder's Day will be
celebrated. These services and this great in
stitution will never allow the memory of Al
bert S. Wilcox to grow dim in the minds of
the many grateful people who shall benefit
bv ll:e library.
With some people the main use in a gov
ernment is to have something to blame things
