KAUAI AXlt THE -V. K. A.
We have been fortunate enough to have
received a letter from George Raymond, pres
ident of the Kauai Teachers Association,
which we believe is of too nnuli importance
lo be placed in the "letters lYun the People"
folunm. The letter is self explanatory and
we believe covers the subject fully:
Kapaa School, Kealia, Kauai, T. V
May III, l!2'
Editor, Garden Island: May 1 have space
in your paper to report on a public matter
pertaining t local membership in the Xa
tional Education Association?
It was planned by our Hawaii Education
Association, to send one delegate from each
of the islands of Kauai, Maui and Hawaii,
and two delegates from Oahu. to the nation
al convention of teachers in Boston and later
have these teachers visit Washington in ti e
interest of public affairs of Hawaii. In ad
dil ion to each island delegate there was (
be also, a delegate at large lo represent all
the islands. The island to have the privi
lege of sending this delegate at large would
Ik- the one with the highest percentage of
members in the National Education Associa
tion according to public school teachers em
ployed. The territorial executive committee
decided that the membership lists should close
on May 10th and that the number of school
teachers on each island be that carried on
the pay roll as of April IlOth.,
It should be mentioned too, that the
membership in the N. E. A. is allowed to
persons teaching in private schools, clergy
men, and other persons in closely allied oc
cupations. It would, therefore, be possible
to have more than 100 per cent membership
should all teachers and others join when only
the number of public school teachers is used
as a base for computation. For example,
Kauai, now has 1!4 members in the X. E. A.
with 187 public school teachers.
The final results for the islands are as
follows: Oahu and Hawaii less than 100 per
cent; Kauai 10:5.74; Maui 104.21.
Let me take the opportunity to commend
publicly the officers and the members of the
local teachers' association for their puissant
.efforts in placing Kauai in its present posi
tion with X. E. A. members. To know and
realize that practically ull public school teach
ers are supporters of an organization as great
and influential for professional betterment as
is the X. E. A. is something for wihch the
people of Kauai may well be proud. The
united action of local educators, at this time,
to seek recognition for Hawaii in federal aid
and support in public affairs Hawaiian, par
ticularly education, may bring results peyond
the expectations of the now many optimists.
Anyhow, will it not be worth while for these
delegates to present some of Hawaii's civic
affairs as puplic school teachers, at the na
tional capital?. .At best it is well to re
member that an organized attempt has been
made by others than the usual emissaries to
carry Hawaiian problems to continental
United States and to the seat. of our national
Kauai teachers, by one-half of one per
cent, will not have the honor of sending to
the states the delegate at large, but be it
said: Kauai teachers are cooperating as
members in America's most powerful educa
tion association. The zeal which local teach
ers have, at this lime, displayed for the in
terest of public education in the territory
cannot but be admired. The membership in
the N. E. A. indicates that persons on this
island have quietly and completely organ iz-
ed for public benefits of concern to our ter
ritory. Above all is the opportunity which
they have taken of having some part with
the organized teachers of the United States
in carrying forward a program for the ad
vancement of the teaching profession and
the promotion thru education of the highest
welfare of the nation.
Yours very respectfully,
' (Mid. S. RAYMOND.

THE AUTOMOBILE ORDIXAXVE
The board of supervisors have been work
ing for some time preparing an ordinance for
the regulation of motor vehicle traffic on this
It is to be hoped that it will be complet
ed and ready for enforcement without undue
delay. If there is any place on earth that is
in need of such an ordinance it is Kauai.
One of the worst offenses is that of glar
ing headlights and the operation of cars with
only one light. This is a matter that should
rciehe the immediate attention of the po
lice department as soon as the ordinances
become a law.
Another matter that needs the attention
of the authorities and the automobile club
is the summary handling of that pest known
as the "road hog," who takes the center of
the highway ami forces everybody he meets
into the gutter. This offense is becoming
more flagrant all the time. The automobile
club can do good work along this line if its
members will take the number of these of
fenders and immediately report them to the

Just why anyone should turn their cat
tle and horses on the public road to graze
is beyond our ken. We have heard that one
reason why the police take very little action
is because the ordinance covering this is
faulty and they are unable to secure convic
tions. If this is the case, then the fault lies
with the supervisors and the fault should be
corrected at once, and not wait until some
tragedy will cause publia opinion to force
them to act.
If this is not the case, then the fault
lies with the police, and it should not be
very difficult to force anyone to perform n
duty that he has taken the oath to do. In
the meantime the cattle and horses graze on

THE HELE LOAS ABSORB
The Hele Loas enjoyed another
of their Hawaiian evenings as the
guests of the new cottage at the
high school last Tuesday.
The subject of the evening was
"The Development of Hawaiian Law"
and was dealt with very efficiently
and intelligently by Judgci Dickey.
In the development of the subject
many interesting and little known
facts were brought out, and not a
little wisdom and intelligence wrc
reflected on study of old Hawaiian
chiefs who adopted so readily the
wise suggestion and advice of the
bettir class of foreigners.
The most delicious refreshments
were served and a happy, social time
followed the legal aspect of the evening.
