added touch and to help those whose

number which was sung by tho three
kings was an old Christmas carol,

around the manger was the seventh

last tableu made the most beautiful
picture of them all.
Too much credit cannot bo given
tho committeo which was headed
by Miss Edith Rico and Miss Edith
Hanson, for the wonderful success
of the Christmas tableau.
The program committee for the
tableau was Mrs. H. D. Sloggett,

Ninety Members Turn Out to Hear Professor A. A.
Hauck Speak on Education; Principal F. J.
Dollinger Talks on School Problems
Tho Kauai Chamber of Commerce
held Its regular meeting at tho Tip
Top Cafe last Thursday evening and
the biggest turnout of the year mark
ed tho last meeting in 1922.
Over 90 members turned out to
hear Prof. A. A. Hauck, president
of Punahou school, and F. J Doll
inger, of Kauai high school, and
they wero rewarded by hearing two
of the most Interesting addresses
that have boon delivered before the
chamber this year.
President Hauck was the first
speaker and he took for his subject
"Education." He told tho chamber
that tho duties of present day edu
cation Inf preparing tho children for
the future wero fourfold. The first
was to educate them along physical
lines, so that their bodies would
be prepared to take up the struggle
when they went out into the world.
The second duty was to give them
a complete working knowledge of
the English language so that In the
future their thinking and reading
would bo in that language, Tho third
duty was to develop a civic attitude
among the children so that when
they became of age they would
perform their duties as citizens in
an intelligent manner; and the fourth
was to teach them to earn a living.
He then told tho chamber that It
was a good sign for the future of
education when bodies similar to
the chamber wero taking an Inter
est in it.
President HaucU's address was de
livered in an unusually Interesting
manner and his words made a dis
tinct impression on the members.
F. J. Dollinger, who followed Mr.
Hauck, then told what Is being
done at the Kauai high school along
developing the local children. Mr.
Dollinger opened his talk with an
invitation to the members of the
chamber to visit tho high school
and inspect it so as to receive first
Kapaa Water Supply
Increased Next Year
Kapaa and Wuilua residents who
in the past have been forced to
suffer temporary shortages in their
water supply, due to tho heavy de
mand for water In the early morn
ings and evenings, will no doubt bo
interested in the announcement of
Supervisor Fred Mcndcs that the
work of developing a supply of wat
er, sufficient to meet tho needs of
Kawalhau, is expected to start early
Plans for the work havo already
been submitted to th Department
of Public Works In Honolulu and
bids will probably bo called for soon.
Kapaa and iWallua aro at present
supplied with only ono line, and
Walpoull and Wailua residents aro
always complaining of empty pipes,
tho demand from those nt the head
of the line taking all the water dur
ing certain periods of tho day.
The present plans for the now
water system call for two lines lead
ing from tho same source, ono lino
for Kapaa users and nnother for
Waipauli and Wailua, thus insuring
all residents with an adequate sup
ply. A third line will probably bo
built to supply the Hawaiian Can
neries Co., as tho pineapple cannery
during tho height of tho canning
season in the summer months re
quires an enormous quantity of wat
er ,for uso in connection with their
For those who may bollevo that
three lines' leading from tho
same source of supply might tend
to exhaust tho supply or at least
to diminish it, Supervisor Meudes
states that tho present supply avail
able all the year around, is suffici
ent to eupply a district with three
times the present population of Ka
walhau. Tho last legislature appropriated
$C0,000 for tho development of an
adequate water supply for Kapaa.

hand knowledge as to what Is being
Ho then bocamo specific where
President Hauck had been general,
and told that the school was work
ing along a fourfold plan.
The first plan was that tho nchool
was preparing tho scholars who In
tended to take up collego courses,
for that work In Its academic de
partment. The second plan was to
develop the local girls, who prefer
red that course along- the linos of
domestic science and domestic art.
This course prepared them as houso
wives and home builders. The third
plan wus to develop boys industrially
and technically, with a four year
manual training course. Tho fourth
plan was to develop girls and boys
for n commercial career with a four
year commercial course.
Mr. Dolllnger's talk gave many
members of the chamber a new
light on tho work that has been
done at the high school and many
favorable comments were heard from
At the business session, which
followed tho banquet, a motion was
introduced to have tho chair ap
point a committee to devise a suit
able memorial to tho late J. M. Lyd
gate. An amendment was added to
tho first motion that the board of
supervisors bo petitioned by tho
chamber to change the name of Wal
lua Park to J. M. Lydgato Park as
a memorial to Mr. Lydgate, as it
was thru his efforts that this park
was obtained for the public of Ka
uai. Both the motion and tho amend
nient passed unanimously.

delegate to tho recent civic convon
tion in Honolulu from tho Kauai
