FILMS Q THE PAPER
A newspaper is always in search of real
live news of the community. But because an
editor is always early in search of such news
and is willing to go to much trouble and ex
pense in obtaining it, people often forget that
newspaper space is an expensive proposition,
and get the impression 1hat an editor is glad
of anything to fill up.
No editor has the sliglitc.-t trouble to fill
up the paper. The real problem is to keep
from filing the columns of the paper with,
"stuff" the readers will not want to wade
thru to the exclusion of the news matter that
they pay to get. There isn't an issue that an
editor doesn't consign to the waste basket
or turn down enough matter to fill the paper
twice over without room for a line of news
I'eople often forget that newspaper space
is valuable, and that it is about the only thing
the newspaper has to sell. They don't seem
to understand that it must be disposed of as
carefully as a merchant disposes of his slock
of goods. Every now and then Kauai citi
zens bring in an item that is not news ii any
sense of the word, that is advertising pure
and simple, and that would mean tak'rg up
space to boost someone's business. Even the
government is an offender, and every mail
brings a lot of propaganda that ought to be
paid for, but which is offered "just to fill
the paper." The fact that an article has mer
it doesn't always mean it should be printed.
If it isn't news the only question to be con
sidered is whether it will be sufficiently in
teresting to the majority of our readers, that
thev should like to read it. and whether if is
more interesting and more va'.r.a' l? than any
other matter, that will have to be omit I. -d if
it is given space. And Ihe editor alone must
be the judge of that.

We note from the exchanges that in a
number of sections women voters are de
manding of candidates that they publish
their views on all important public ques
tions, and we believe the fair sex lias opened
up something that the male voters never
seemed able to accomplish. The women of
America are entitled to vote, and why are
they not entitled to know the views of the
candidates who seek their ballots? We believe
women oters on Kauai will agree with us
when we say that it is far better to come
right out and ask the candidate where he
stands than it is to consult their husbands,
who generally know too little about 1 lie men
they support. The time has come in ihis
country when everyone must protect his own
pocket book. And just how a legislator votes
alter lie gets into office has a lot to do
with the pocket book. So this new move to put
1he candidate on record bears on its. face
the mark of a mighty good thing; a thing
entitled to attention in litis community the
same as in anv other.

Not one of the thousands of employers who came to grief
as a result of the dishonesty of employees during the past
year suspected a dishonest streak when the men were hired,
if it had been suspected they would not have been hired and
there would have been no necessity for this ad.
Unless your employees are bonded, and bonded all the
time, you are in constant danger of a loss which may bes
large enough to cripple you financially. Would it not be
(he better part of economy to spend a few dollars a year for
bonding your employees than to run the everlasting, nerve
racking risk of losing hundreds, perhaps thousands.

THE CHOICE OF THE PICK
How Fast Can
You Pump Gas?
yillCX a motorist stops for gasoline he usu
ally wants it in a hurry. If you have a Mil
waukee gasoline pump you can give him i'if
leen gallons a minute. This is just one of the
many handy features of the Milwaukee. There
is. for insl ance, a little valve that drains the
Jiosc when pumping stops and saves yon much
waste. If you want the gasoline business in
your district, get a Milwaukee.
