THE MAUI NEWS, FRIDAY, MARCH 16, 1917.
THREE American uitizensnip is New Work Of Maui Aid (Continued From Page One.) 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 additional study. 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 ister's Meeting and Minister's Classes, (c) Maui Theological Library ; A. C. Bowdish, chairman; other members: W. B. Coale, E. E. Pleasant, G. E. Lake, R. B. Dodge, Miss Edna J. Hill, and Miss Gertrude B. Judd. "2.

Want MacDonald To Stay At Lahainaluna (Continued from Page One.) 9th grades, or modification bo as to give the boys fuller training In Eng lish and English composition. Do Not Like Agriculture The committee also declares that the Hawaiian boys do not take kindly to agriculture, but do want work In printing, blacksmlthlng, carpentry, etc., and cites the opinon of L. Weinz- helmer, D. T. Fleming, and alumni of the school. The report, In reference to the re signation of Principal MacDonald, says 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 school." 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. Weekly News Letter. ' 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."- Ttt-Bits. NO. 8207.
