. . PROCLAMATION
There is nothing like a renewal of faith.
Father and Son Week has enteicd the list
of established community
Father and events because it furnishes
Son Week an opportunity for the fath
ers to pive personal and
public, expression to their faith in their sons
and the sons to reciprocate.
Hawaii is proud of its sons. They are
an inspiration to the fathers on whom fall
present day responsibilities.
Each year brings its outstanding feat
ures to which especial attention is directed,
but running thru all the years is always
found the desire and the need for a growing
spirit of comradeship between father and son
and a great and more entensively combin
ed interest in high moral standards, ready
response to public service and friendly toler
ance of each others opinions, without sacri
fice of fundamental principles.
Hawaii is now in the midst of the selec
tion of representatives to transact its legisla
tive business, and in other ways has atten
tion centered on ways and means for promot
ing community welfare.
It is therefore appropriate and I do
hereby designate the week from November 5
to November 11 as FATHER AND SON
WEEK and earnestly urge individual citi
zens and community groups to devote such
time and effort as may be possible to meet
ings and personal counsels as will give the
sons the benefit of the balanced experience
of their elders and the fathers the new en
thusiasm that always comes from contact
with the energy and enthusiasm of youth.
In Witness Whereof, I have hereunto set my
hand and caused the Great Seal of the
Territory of Hawaii to be affixed.

THEY'LL a resident of a town the
LEARX size of Lihue and longing
LATER OX for broader fields "where
everybody don't know every
body's business." We've heard that remark
more than once, and each time it has grat
ed on our ears. Because we know about life
in the congested cities of the mainland and
we know how much more enjoyable is life
in the smaller towns, and in the rural sec
tions. Very shortly after reacing the big city,
"where everybody don't know everybody's
business," there comes to the town-bred boy
or girl the longing for a smile of recognition,
a nod of the head or a cheery "hello," from
someone who really has an interest in them.
Possibly a little spell of home-sickness is en
countered. Then they note the absence of
kindly neighbors and the touch of parental
hands that are better than medicine. Very
often, too, finances get low. There is no need
in" seeking credit. Strangers always remain
strangers in the big city, and credit is only
for those who can show a bank account.
"Charge it to father" doesn't mean anything
to the big city merchant, whose acquaintance
doesn't take in more than one father, and
that one his own.
We live to learn, and that's the only
consolation we have when we hear a boy or
girl yearning for the life of a big city. They
will learn later on, and generally through
experience, that when it comes to actual
happiness the small town home stands first,
and always will.
It's hard to sit way off here in the mid

in the resignation of Lloyd
George and the British cabinet. But it isn't
hard to understand that the terrible Turk
is back of it all. Lloyd George has seen the
handwriting on the wall, and realized that
the greatest calamity that could befall the
world would be to let the atrocious Turk gain
a foothold in Europe. Fear of another war,
the old one being still very fresh in the
minds of the English, resulted in a difference
of opinion in England. America hardly real
izes England's dilemma; but she has fith in
that country's sincerity and in her desire
to preserve the English speaking race. And
for that reason, as against the blood-thirsty
Turk, America's sympathy is now and
always will be with the nation that speaks
her own tongue.

LETTERS FROM THE PEOPLE

To the Editor,
The Garden Island, Lihue.
In the Lihue library there is a
book which should be read with spe
cial interest by several of our com
munity. I refer to "This Freedom"
by A. S. M. Hutchinson, which deals
with the subject of married women
being engaged In business pursuits.
To the fifteen or twenty married
teachers in our midst it furnishes
deep food for thought.
The question as to whether a
mother can devote the attention to
her children and home as is expected
of her arises. Neglect reflects it
self upon our future manhood.
It is difficult to understand how
these vital duties can be properly
observed by the wife, or mother,
who is absent from home soon af
ter 7 in the morning until late af
ternoon. Locally, in nearly every
case their husband's salary ranges
from $125 to double that figure per
month; which is all sufficient for
ordinary moderate needs. But it
ould appear that selfish vanities
direct them to take up teaching.
I do not refer to widows, to
whom it is a necessity, but desire
to drive the point home to those
married teachers who crave for so
cial prominence and to meet such
worldly desires find it necessary to
augment the income of their hus
band, thus displaying self interest
of the most compelling character
Such motives are far from the Am
erican ideal of home life.
Tne Mokinana Club has never
dealt with this subject in their
many so-called "social problems"
doubtless because it would deal too
directly with mary "social climb
Insomuch as it appears that the
subject of married teachers in our
public schools will come up before
our next legislature an open dis
cussion, I venture to suggest, would

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 be
large enough to cripple you financially. Would it not be
the 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.
