tion on Maui, but would work in the heartiest co-operation with the
Maui Aid Association.
"The advance work of the year that has attracted most attention
is the beginning of the teaching of American Citizenship. Between two
and three hundred men are now enrolled and new classes are being
formed each month. The shifting of many of the laborers from one
place to another has somewhat interfered with the steady progress of
one or two classes. Other classes have grown, however, so the total
number remains constant. The generous promises of financial as
sistance from the Hawaiian Commercial and Sugar Company, Wai
luku Sugar Company and the Maui Agricultural Company, together
with the special donations of the Henry P. Baldwin, Ltd., Mr. Frank
F. Baldwin and Dr. W. D. Baldwin, have made it possible, to nearly
arrange the budget of this committee for a two year period, so that
the trustees of this Association felt justified on January 20th in call
ing Mr. C. A. MacDonald of Lahainaluna to become director of the
citizenship classes of Maui County. He has accepted the position and
will begin his work on April 1st.
"The Committee on the Japanese Girls' Home in Wailuku has held
several important meetings this year. Through assistance of Mrs. H.
A. Baldwin the kitchen and dining room were made over and thorough
ly equipped. Mrs. Helen Mar Linton is teaching one cooking class a
week to women, Miss Gertrude B. Judd two classes a week to girls in
the Home. Sixty-three girls are now members of the institution.
The Japanese people of Maui have organized the Ko-en Kwai Society,
or the "Helping and Backing Society" of two hundred members to
financially assist the institution. Through the generosity of Manager
H. B. Penhallow, an additional strip of land has been secured. Mr. S.
Kanda, whose wife is at the head of the Home, has personally donated
$1,000.00 toward a much needed new building. He has also signed
over to the Maui Aid Association $1,000.00 in a life insurance policy,
besides giving an annual donation of about $600.00. He is ready to
deed for the future enlargement of the Home a piece of land in Wai
luku which he recently purchased for $1,500.00. The Committee decid
ed that in view of the big demand on the part of Maui Japanese girls
for entrance into this Home that the coming of girls from other islands
would in the future be discouraged.
"Liberal donations as recorded in the Treasurer's report show
over $2,700.00 secured for the Home. The debt has been cleared and
balance is on hand.
"In the death of Miss Amy Swain, head of the Kahului Kinder
garten, we lost a remarkably fine helper and a beautiful character. Miss
Hannah, who came highly recommended, is doing excellent work and
is much appreciated.
"The work of the Committees in the various districts of Maui
County among the churches has been far-reaching. The most important
repairs on old buildings has been attempted on Molokai in the thorough
renovation of the Kaluaaha Church. Had we not begun this work, this
landmark in Hawaiian Christianity would have been in ruins. The
Molokai Committee is also undertaking the building of the Waialua
church, toward which the people themselves raised over $1,100.00. A
rather large sum will be needed to complete these two buildings. Thanks
is especially due to Mr. H. R. Hitchcock for his personal supervision
of the repair of the Kaluaaha Church and in the erection of the Wai
lua church. ; ... XISSESM'.
"At the last annual meeting the recommendation was favorably
acted upon that we secure Miss Gertrude B. Judd of Hartford, Conn.,
as special instructor in Bible and theological study. She has in regular
classes twelve men, seven of whom are Hawaiians. An average of
twelve hours a week Miss Judd has devoted to these classes. The
ministers are steadily improving. Until just lately Rev. Ellis E. Plea
sant of Kahului has been taking three of the men for four hours of
The attendance at the regular monthly meeting of the Ministers
has been increasing during the past year, and a much deeper interest
taken by all than ever before. Often the attendance has been twenty,
not counting the visitors. The work of this Committee has not been
generally known. Results along these lines of effort are obtained slow
ly. Those of the group who have been trained in college and seminary
are among the most enthusiastic over these monthly gatherings.
"At the suggestion of Miss Judd a theological club has been form
ed among the ministers of the Union Churches of Maui. The adult
members of the families are also admitted. The purpose of the club
is the preparation of theses and essays in the field of theology and kindr
ed subjects. The club meets once a month for professional study.
"The faithfulness and interest .on the part of all committee memb
ers of the Maui Aid Association cannot be too highly commended. Be
sides the twenty members of the Association a large number of per
sons have been serving on these Committees, whose advice and as
sistance have been invaluable.
"Mrs. Harold W. Rice was elected a new member pf the Associa
tion. Frank F. Baldwin was chosen as the President for the year 1917;
H. A. Baldwin vice-president ; Rowland B. Dodge, secretary-treasurer ;
D. C. Lindsay, auditor. The president, treasurer and auditor were
again elected the Finance Committee for the year. The new Board of
Trustees is constituted as follows: Mrs. Emily A. Baldwin, Frank F.
Baldwin, H. A. Baldwin, Dr. W. D. Baldwin, S. A. Baldwin A: Craig
Bowdish, George P. Cooke, Rowland B. Dodge, David C. Lindsay, H.
B. Penhallow, Harold W. Rice.
"Mrs. Emily A. Baldwin gave the Association a very handsome
gift in the, form of a deed of the William and Mary Alexander Par
sonage premises upon the express condition that they always be used
for parsonage purposes. v
"A large amount of appropriations were made for 1917, the most
important of which was the vote to build an addition to the wailuku
Japanese Girls' Home, money for which had been raised or pledged by
the Japanese community.
"The President appointed the following committees for the year:
"I. Committee on (a) Reports of Ministers, (b) Monthly Min

The report, In reference to the re
signation of Principal MacDonald,
Resignation of Principal
"In regard to the resignation of Mr.
Clarence A. MacDonald, your commit
tee Is of the opinion that the resigna
tion was caused by the feeling on the
part of Mr. MacDonald that he was
not being supported by the depart
ment of public instruction and that
this department wa3 not satisfied with
his work as such principal. We found
that this feeling arose from circum
stances, namely: First, that the de
partment had appointed Mr. Clowes
with an equal salary to that of Mr.
MacDonald, and a feeling on Mr.
Clowes' part that his duties and po
sition were coordinate to Mr. Mac
Donald's. "We found that the department did
not so consider Mr. Clowes, and so In
formed Mr. MacDonald. Second, the
appointment of Mr. Sahr without con
sultation with Mr. MacDonald. The
superintendent of public instruction
has stated that this appointment was
made under pressure of circumstances
and the department has informed Mr.
MacDonald that in case Mr. Sahr was
not found competent by Mr. MacDon
ald they would consider some other
teacher for his place, but that no
complaint had been made by Mr. Mac
Donald, and the third was an attempt
by the supervising principal to have
of the teachers file charges and critic
isms with the supervising principal
against Mr. MacDonald. Of this effort
on the part of the supervising princip
al we do not believe that the depart
ment was cognizant or sanctioned it.
Recommends MacDonald' Retention
"Your committee, therefore, feels
that the resignation of Mr. MacDonald
was in large part due to misunder
standings between the department and
Mr. MacDonald, which misunderstand
ings have been or could be easily
cleared up, and that the long and effi
cient services of Mr. MacDonald, ser
vices which we have found appreciat
ed and highly spoken of by students,
alumni and friends of the school,
should not be dispensed with, and re
commend that Mr. MacDonald be re
quested to reconsider his resignation
and continue as superintendent of the
HOW TO TEST ALFALFA SEED
The percentage of alfalfa seed that
will grow can be easily determined by
means of a simple tester. The seed
should be thoroughly mixed, after
which ICO or 200 seeds should be
counted out. The seeds should be plac
ed between two pieces of blotting
paper or two folds of a piece of flan
nel cloth, care being taken that the
seeds do not touch one another. The
seed container should then be put on
a plate, well moistened without satur
ating, covered with another plate in
verted, and the tester then placed
the temperature can be kept at about
seventy degrees F. After about three
days the sprouted seed should be
counted and removed each day until
about the sixth, when most of the good
seeds will have sprouted and the per
centage that will grow can be deter
mined. Some hard seed are occassion
al ly present in a sample. These may
be alive, but they require additional
time for germination. In the case of
Grimm alfalfa as much as thirty-five
percent of the seed is frequently hard.

The Kinder Way
A small special constable when on
top of a tram-car was requested by the
conductor to come down to deal with
a man who was inclined to be abusive.
Reluctantly, the special constable
complied with the request, but found
himself confronted by a huge navvy
about six feet six inches high and
four feet broad.
"There he is," said the conductor.
"He won't pay his fare."
The small special constable reflect
ed, and then remarked sadly: "Well,
I suppose I must pay it for him."-
