MAJ. W. A. JOHNSON IN REPORT
Major W. A. Johnson,' who is head
of the U. S. Engineers in Hawaii,
Is tho authority for tho statement
that Nawillwlli harbor has1 greater
facilities for development than any
other harbor In, the Hawaiian Is
lands. According to his statements, Na
willwlli has an Inner and outer
harbor and tho breakwater that 1.4
now being constructed IsJ along,
the reef that separates the two.
The inner harbor when completed
will bo 1000 wldo and 2000 feet
long. This includes of course tho
area that will bo dredged out when
that work begins.
The recent additional approprlaf
tlon is expected to complete tho
breakwater, but an additional ap
propriation will bo needed to carry
out the dredging of the harbor.
The estimated cost of the pro
ject in 1911 was 1$,OSC,000 with an
annual appropriation of $10,000 for
Paper Mulch System
for K. F. & L. Co.
The paper mulching process that
the Kauai Fruit & Land Co. has
been using In its 80-acre field near
the top of Wahiawa hill has proven
en so successful that they aro now
carrying on the work In one of the
uew fields near Koloa. This field
is about 75 acres in extent and the
paper mulch will bo used over the
According to Walter McBryde, the
Wahiawa field has always been
troublesome ,ds far as the weeds
are concerned and the using of the
paper mulch system has practically
removed this trouble and the dif
ference in tho plants Is plainly visi
ble. The using of the paper mulch sys
tem on tho Koloa field Is a bit more
difficult owing to tho fact that tho
plants are in the ground and are
of fair size. This necessitates the
cutting of holes for the plants, but
owing to the fact that the plants
are spaced a tregular intervals this
can be dono .before tho paper is
brought, to tho field. At tho Wahia
wa field strips of paper 300 feet
long were used, but owing to the
high wind that generally prevails
at the Koloa field it is necessary
to use- strips 12 feet long to pre
vent the paper from tearing.

Dr. Emerson Speaks
at Parish House
Dr. William P. Emerson deliver
ed an address at tho Llhuo Menii
orial Parish house last Friday ev
ening under tho auspices of tho
Kauai Social Service Association.
Tho subject of Dr. Emerson's ad
dress was "Malnutrition." A largo
number of storeoptlcon slides wero
used to illustrate his lecture and
they wero a great help to the audi
ence in grasping the salient points
of his address.
One of tho surprises of the ad
dress was the fact that Dr. Emer
son stated that there was Just as
much malnutrition among tho chil
dren from the homes of the rich
and well-to-do as there was among
the poor. Poverty is not ono of the
prime causes of malnutrition.
He classified the causes of mal
nutrition under the following heads:
Physical defects, lack of homo con
trol, over-fatigue, and Improper
He then gavo several specific In
stances where a child was under
weight and Investigation showed
that Its food ration was properly
balanced and there was no physical
dofects and then further Investiga
tion showed that either its condi
tions of living wero not healthtul
or its homo situation was not lnv-
A part of his address was given
over to a' ploa to Improve these
conditions among tho children and
at tho conclusion of his address Dr.
Hagood, president of the Kauai Social
Service Association, assured Dr.
Emerson that nutrition classes
would bo started on the Island at.d
that an Intensive campaign would
be carried on.
