TEACHERS AND THE

Friday night to discuss night scho.il
work and problems.
The urgent requests from spvcinl
loalitics for night schools where
K: glisli will lu- taught, was the oc
casion i f Hie gathering. Many mis
understandings arise between luna
and laborer because orders and di

DRIED PINEAPPLE WASTE AS A
The residue of pineapple In our
canneries consisting of those parts
of the pineapple which have little
or no value for human consumption
have heretofore been treated as more
or less of a waste product which
was disposed of In the least expen
sive way possible. In out of the city
canneries this disposal usually con
sists in allowing it to accumulate
in a conveinent gulch back of the
cannery, while in the city canneries
it has been hauled away and ap
plied to the land or perhaps burned
and the ashes used as fertilizer.
A feeding test has Just been com
pleted at the University of Hawaii
farm which seems to indicate that
pineapple waste has a considerable
feeding value for livestock.
The dried pineapple waste in this
feeding experiment was secured from
the Hawaiian Pineapple Co., as a
drying apparatus had been Install
ed in their factory to handle a large
part of the accumulation of refuse.
This material was analyzed by the
experiment station of the H. S. P.
A. had the following composition:

per ton, and the other feeds at mar
ket prices. This test shows that
hogs are not particularly fond of
pineapple waste and select other
feeds in preference when such oth
er feeds are available. However,
this is typical ot the reaction of the
animals to any new feed to which
they are not accustomed..
Another lot of eight hogs were
put on a mixture containing 30 per
cent dried pineapple waste along
with 30 per cent wheat middlings,
20 per cent rolled barley, 10 per
cent tankage and 10 per cent co
coanut meal. They could eat as
much of this as they liked but
every mouthful they consumed con
tained 30 per cent pineapple waste.
In a three week period they aver
aged one pound of live gain for
every 4.07 pounds of the feed mix
ture contained at a feed cost of S.9
cents per pound of gain.
After this these same eight hogs
were given for three weeks a mix
ture containing 60 per cent dried
pineapple waste, 30 per cent wheat
middlings, 10 per cent tankage and
10 per cent cocoanut meal, and on
this' mixture they averaged 1 pound
of gain for every 3.7 pounds of feed
consumed at a feed cost of 7.0 cents
per pound gain.
These results were so satisfactory
that the same hogs that had been
given this 30 per cent and 60 per
cent dried pineapple mixture were
again given free access to a num
ber of feeds one of which was pine
apple waste to determine if they
had acquired a fondness for this
feed after being forced to eat it
for six weeks. During three weeks
they selected an average of only
10 per cent of dried pineapple
This shows that hogs will make
good gains on a feed mixture con
taining 30 to 50 per cent pineapple
waste, but they will select other
feeds In preference, when available.
One test is suggestive but not con
clusive. Another similar feeding
test is now in progress at Kame
hameha schools under the direction
of Mr. Borden, and this when com
pleted will either confirm or dis
prove these interesting results se
cured at the university, farm. L. A.

The February, 1922, material was
used in the hog feeding test about
to be described. The August, 1922,
material is in a better physical
state than was the earlier material
and this is being used in a dairy
cow feeding test which Is now in
progress at the university farm
and will be reported later.
The details of this feeding test
will appear in the fifth annual re
port of the agricultural department
of the University of Hawaii, but a
general summary Is given here as
a preliminary announcement.
Twenty-nine hogs with an initial
weight of 45 pounds each were used
in the feeding tests, which were
continued for twelve weeks. Green
alfalfa was supplied as a roughage
in all these tests.
A lot of hogs having free ac-nws
to any or all of the following feeds
balanced their ration as follows
Rolled barley, 18 per cent.
Cracked corn, 41 per cent.
Pried pineapple waste, 9 per cent.
Wheat middlings, 19 per cent.
Tankage, 13 per cent.
This lot gained one pound in
weight for every 3.03 pounds of the
feed consumed at a feed cost of
9.04 cents per pond gain when dried
pineapple waste was vulued at $20
MORE ABOUT DRYING BANANAS
Following the publication recently !
of Dr. Ripperton's experience in J
drying bananas at the federal ex-
prenment station, some further in
formation was volunteered by W. A.
Anderson of Honolulu. According to
his statement, S. Miura (formerly
with a dehydrating company in Los
Angeles) took up the problem some
months ago of drying or dehydrat
ing bananas on a commercial scale
and succeeded In "producing an ar
ticle believed by a large San Fran
cisco dealer to be marketable.
Miura dries the ripe banana whole
which contains a good color and flav
or and apparently has good keeping
qualities. The dried product is said
to weigh about one-fifth as much
as the original bunch (including the
stem). The cost is stated to, be 21
cents per pound, with fresh bananas
at 2 cents per pound. This informa
tion may be available to others
working along the same line. Lets
have some more ideas on this.
It is far more important to teach
children to like agriculture than to
teach them facts about agriculture
If a child becomes interested in og
riculture the facts will be easily
learned as a matter of course. The
teacher exerts a great deal of influ
ence on pupils in awakening or re
tarding interest in agriculture. Thru
the school garden, thru nature study,
thru pig clubs, poultry, mi gar cane,
and other clubs of boys and girls,
you have the opportunity, teature
means awakening and developing
real interest In agriculture on the
part of your pupils.
Training children toward agricul
ture means awakening and develop
ing an interest in the subject and
leading them to discover many in
teresting facts for themselves. Acta
al contact with growing tilings is
even more important than reading
and study, although both are essen
