SEND YOUR BOYS TO CAMP RICE
When the feel of summer gets in the air
uu instinctive longing is felt by every normal
ma nand boy to get out in the open where
there is room to range and stretch, away
from man -made constructions and conven
tions. What memories can compare with
those of the camp and trail? Some of the
camp-fire stories and conversations are among
the choicest of our mental pleasures. To sleep
out, cook, search for nature's secrets, to
walk, run, swim and fish in the great out
doors are but expressions of tl at instinct for
freedom of living which (iod implanted in
every human heart.
"If you really want to know a person go
camping with them.'' The shirker, the grouch,
the glutton will disclose themselves quicker
on a camping trip than under any other cir
cumstances. Camping calls out and develops
the desirable qualities, making the best of
discomforts and conveniences, giving and
talking, sharing and helping, communing with
one another and nature, these are the ele
ments of true democracy and fundamental
successful living in the larger circles of life.
Hoys in the process of growing need the
out of doors; the tonic of the hills and ocean,
to walk under the great sky with its millions
of torches at night, to be toughened by wind
and rain. Regardless of station in life a
strong physique, firm muscles and fcood
character are the most valuable assets a
young man has to offer society.
A camp for boys, under proper supervi
sion, affords a place where all the cravings
of n real boy can be satisfied and allowed
wholesome expression. Because of their con
structive value camps for boys have sprung
up all over the world. Thousands of boys
are annually receiving the benefits which
these outings provide.
Camp Hice, to be conducted bv the Coun
ty Y. M. C. A. June 20 to July 8. at Haena
beach, offers to the boys of Katiai twelve
days of camping under the most favorable
conditions, at the nominal cost of S?t for the
twelve days. Parents who are mindful of
the present and future welfare of their boys
will do well to give serious consideration to
this announcement. The dates chosen allow
the balance of the summer for work and other
activities, whicvh will be better performed af
ter the outing.

Throughout this month higlQschools ev
erywhere will be graduating boys and girls,
turning out future citizens. It is a great ev
ent for them, and for all, for this is the young
blood which, a few yours hence, will be car
rying on in our social and business aetivl
We sometimes feel nothing so inspires one
with the wish that everything in the world
might be good, that success might be univer
sal, that the road fo honor and respect might
Ik? straight and smooth, as to see these girls
and boys at the threshhold of their careers.
They have ideals that have not been soiled
by the realities of life, their heads are in The
clouds; the world invites them to conquest,
and they are unafraid. It is an inspiring
spectacle, and for the moment it routs the
cynicism which failures and disappointments
have bred in us older ones.
Hut there is one little thing we'd like to
call to the attention of every Kauai boy and
girl starting into life, those who are just
leaving school. And that is the value of re
membering that there isn't any more to be
taken out of the world than you put into it.
Each year finds the struggle for success
growing more difficult, and it is the men and
women who do things for the community in
which they live who receive in return the
best the community has to give. You are go
ing to get out of the world just in jtropor
tion to what you put into it. And the sooner
you start giving it the best there is in you
that much sooner will the best that is in oth
ers be given to you.
THAT IS OUT
It's pretty hard to make the average
editor believe that even in heaven a paper
can print the truth without fear of losing
a few subscribers.
'Along about this time of year the iti
zen who owns a lawnmower starts in trying
to remember which one of his neighbors bor
rowed it last.
Still another thing that indicates a re
turn to the good old days is that the wrist
watches are becoming fewer.
It has been our observation that the
average poor man's wife is just one darned
installment payment after another.

THE LEUIOX AX I) THE ARMORY
The front page of this week's issue of the
Harden Island carries a cut of the proposed
change that the American Legion plans for
the Lihue Armory.
One glance at this drawing is enough
to convince any open minded person that the
change is inestimable. From a squat sore-eye
of a building it is planned to construct one
that will carry some dignity and will yive
an added effect to the embryo civic center
of Lihue, which will be somewhat in keeping
Willi the county building and the proposed
If, for no other causes the change should
be made for artistic reasons. The Le
gion's idea for the change was not artistic
but service, which is, no doubt, more in line
with the Legion's principles.
Vhe Iifgion plans to give Lihue, particu
larly, and Kauai in general, a community cen
ter second to none in the Hawaiian islands.
It is wrong to say that the Legion plans to
give the building to the public. What the
JA'gion plans to do is to help the public give
itself the building.
The campaign for funds is now under
way and the Ixigion . plans to reach every
person in the Lihue district in its solicita
tion of funds and no contribution will be
considered too small or for that matter, too
The amount set to be raised is four thou
sand dollars and it does not seem possible
that for such a worthy object that the Legion
should experience much difficulty in raising
this sum. Every person who invests a dollar
in this project, and there is not the least
doubt that it is an investment and not a
contribution, will be more than able to receive
dividends in the shape of amusement and
recreation as well as the pleasure experienc
ed by helping a proposition of this type.
So, let's reach in the pocket and dig. Fig
ure out how much we can spare and then add
25 per cent for luck.
SVRAl'PIXG THE XAVY
Under the condition of the new naval
policy the United States is scrapping 845,
740 tons of fighting ships, which is 350,000
tons more than will comprise its list of capi
tal ships under the conference agreement. The
program of destruction will remove from the
naval list of the United States a fleet that
cost this government the tidy sum of 330,
000,000. The United States is scrapping a navy
greater than that of many of the nations of
Europe. Some of the vessels will be converted
for peaceful occupations, and some will be
ripped apart and totally destroyed for the
metals they contain. The heavy armor is
being cut up by oxy-acetelyne torches and di
vided into 2xC feet pieces in order that they
may be remelted in open-hearth furnaces.
Tims is passing and being converted into
peaceful uses a navy that was once the pride
of the nation.
Great Britain is scrapping or will scrap
naval vessels to a total of 583,375 tons, and
Japan will destroy 41X,!I2S tons.
This reduction will leave the United
States and Great Hrtain equal in naval
strength and Japan three-fifths of either of
one. The three powers will scrap a total of
In this destruction of navies it is not be
supposed that any of the completed modern
fighting craft is going to the junk heap, but
that the nations are reducing by the elimin
ation of older types of ships to the limitation
of naval armament agreed upon at the conference.

The Financial Outlook
.The demand throughout the mainland for high grade in
vestment securities, which has developed as a result of the
gradual lowering of interest rates, exhibits uo signs of slack
ening. As a result, bond prices are steadily advancing and it
appears that the time is drawing near when the opportunity
to purchase high degree investment securities at prices which
yield liberal returns will have passed not to return, in all
probability, for many years.
It will soon be true that the investor who had foresight to
accumulate conservative investment securities at present pric
es will be in a position to point with pride to the wisdom
of his judgment.
