Study is Worth While
The following la from the pen of
John C. Tachlbana, a Koloa boy, grad
uate of Kauai High School, and now
a Btmlent at Ihe University of Hawaii.
"If to do were as easy to
know what were good to do,
chapels had been churches,
ar.d poor men's cottages
It was said a few years ago that
three generations without schools and
without any teaching would put us all
back Into savagery. It Is worth while
to think of such things; we are bo
UBed to schools and education In this
country of ours that we forget how
much they mean to us. If we are going
to make our life the wealth of our
nation, we (should adopt a plan to
make study worth while. As a student
one must know that his work Is worth
doing. Think of all the good reasons
you have for studying: Your own high
est interest, your future home, and
above all your beloved U. S. A.
It is a wise plan to read the authors
and biographies that emphasize these
truths, and be sure to avoid every
suggestion contrary to their teachings.
A young student Is likely to lose con
fidence, to him experience says: "Re
member, my dear child: the right
emotional tone is one of happy ear
nest confidence, have confidence that
you can do It." Fortunately It requires
only a little serious thought to make
the average young student or man
realize the importance of study. So
apparent Is the advantage of educa
tion that even the uneducated can
realize it; and often the cry goes up
from those who come to their senses
too late: "Oh, why did I not devote
more time to study at an age when
I had the leisure for it?" 1
If you know that your work Is worth
doing you can not dislike and If you
can do it, you cannot despair of it.
The right emotional tone of happy,
earnest confidence smooths out the
wrinkles in your brow, lifts the cor
rers of your mouth, opens the chest
to deep breathing and strong heart
action. Your whole body becomes fit
to carry on your earnest desire. Now,
the question, How may we acquire
this confidence? Abraham Lincoln, our
beloved grandfather, sustained himself
in the years of misdirected study
with the belief, "What man has done
before man do again." It was a good
thought and still is a good one. We
should remember it. Hundreds of stu
dents have mastered their mathemat
ics, Latin, physics, over which many
sigli. What all .these students have
done and are doing you can do. Gain
confidence ay the thoughts of oth
Not only should the thoughts of
others encourage you, but respect
thyself. The place that you are
stai.ding now iu education should
prove that you are no defective. I
have heard someone say, "Have you
won that place by sheer force of in
dustry?" Hard won success breeds
ever the best and sturdiest confidence.
Remember that Grant was but a me
diocre student and Wellington slow
to learn. Indigence is certainly no bar
to scholarship. Are you afraid of lack
of money? This should not daunt the
and nothing else
Motorists who follow this
rule in their gasoline buying
find that they not only save
money because "Red Crown"
yields more per gallon mileage
but improve the power and
stamina of the motor.
"Red Crown" enables your
car to develop the maximum of
power that its makers built into
it. It vaporizes rapidly and uni
formly in the carburetor, and
is consumed completely in the
cylinders. Uniform wherever
and whenever you buy it
hence you don't have to bother
with carburetor adjustments.

at Service Stations, garages,
and other dealers.

student. Scholarship is said to thrive
best on .plain fare.
After a dinner of milk and rolled
oats, no sleepy dullness follows, such
as holds the Btudies of the overfed.
Many earnest students are working
their way thru high schools and col
leges. And many cam every cent
that it costs them. What others arc
doing we can do.
er true or not, I leave Tt up to you
I have received many advices wheth
to consider. Some of them are: Do
not carry too much work in school if
you are earning your way thru
school. If you find sis subjects too
hard for you, it may be so, take four
or whatever number may appeal to
you. Many students attempt the im
possible, and are disappointed at the
failures that were Inevitable. In work
ing one's way thru school spend five
for four years if necessary. It in rot
a shame, it is a wise policy, and
good thinking. If this is done, you
will find no. difficulty In holding a
good standing in scholarship. Does
it sound reasonable and sensible to
To have confidence does not mean
to take more work than you can do,
by any means. Just as one does not
feel well by overeating, so is It true
with over-working your mind. Physic
al differences are easily seen by young
people. The other day a headline In
a dally paper ran:
"PUMP SEARLK LEADS
TEAM TO VICTORY;
Former Punahou Star Runs 75 Yards
for Touchdown. There is one man
Honolulu Fans Can Look Ahead for,
a Wonder by the Name of Pump
It was something of that sort. We
readily see that everyone of us can
not do the same thing. We consider
him as a football star. We Bee that
a young man boy throws a iron ball
forty fee,t, while a lad of the .same
age throws it only twenty. But we
are slow to recognize mental differ
ences. Give way to the superior and
"hitch your wagon to a star." Trying
to do the impracticable contribute
practically nothing to the happiness
or efficiency of the student.
"Beware of a man of one book,"
says the proverb. It is just the op
posite of another proverb, "Jack of
all trades but master of none." Spe
cialize we should devote our time
and energy to a narrow field of en
deavor and we will be able to accom
plish something worth while, even it
we are a mental Hercules.
Another important fact, though you
may not agree with me, but it should
be considered. As my authority I will
quote you several persons of renown.
Weak health docs not entirely bar
one' to scholarship. Wonderful suc
cess has been achieved by men in fee
ble health. Take Parkman,' Steven
son, Pope, Poe, and Roosevelt. Fran
cis Parkman, our renowned historian,
worked when too weak to sit up, writ
ing and seeking material which
rought forth his wonder book, "Frunce
in the New World." We all know
Robert Louis Stevenson. He wrote
much in his bed. Pope was so sick
that he could not sit at liis desk with
out a bandage to hold his weak body
erect. Good hope and confidence rise
superior to all ills. Nothing would
have daunted the spirit of thene men.
