WAILUKU, MAUI CO., HAWAII,-FRIDAY, MARCH 15, 1918.
IS PLANNED ON
Portions Of Streets Adjacent To Aala
Park To Be Added To
Big Show Site
SOME IDEAS FOR EXHIBITS
The Honolulu board of supervisors
has granted permission to tho fair
commission to fence off a large part
of Beretania, River, Hotel and King
streets adjoining Aala Park, to be
used as a part of tho fair grounds
during tho big territorial show, June
10 to 15.
Along Beretania street, mauka of
Aala Park, the fence will extend to
the middle of the thoroughfare. On
King street the fencing will extend
out a distance from the curb, leaving
room for vehicle traffic mauka of the
car tracks. It will take in most of
River street and out directly across
that avenue at Pauahi to include a
plot 100 feet square, where a live
stock Judging stand is to be erected.
Big structures will be built on Riv
er street, within the fair ground en
closure, to house all livestock.
This arrangement with the city
supervisors enables the fair board to
make the grounds considerably larger
than Aala Park alone would allow.
The space thus gained on Beretania
street probably will be set aside, to
gether with the children's playground,
for amusement concessions.

Child "Lines Up"
Dealers And Fishmen
J. F. Child, food administrator of
the Territory, paid a rush visit to
Maul on Satuday. He had been over
to Hawaii, where, on Thursday, at
Hllo, he conferred with the board of
trade, dealers, fishermen, etc., in re
gard to strict observance of conser
vation rales; and came on here to
continue the same work. The pur
pose of his tour was, mainly, to try
and bring about more uniformity in
conservation methods on the differ
ent islands, something which is diffi
cult to do by correspondence. As an
nounced in last Friday s issue of this
paper, Mr. Child wirelesseuI!Tr. J. J.
Walsh that he was coming on Satur
day and wished to hold meetings with
food dealers and with fishermen. Mr.
Walsh arranged for these meetings,
which were held in the circuit court
room, at Wailuku.
Mr. Child is endeavoring to bring
about uniformity of meat and fish
prices on all the islands, and it is
understood that he succeeded in this
on Hawaii. He was promisea
the assistance of the Vigilance Corps
members, both on Hawaii and here.
"All of the islands of the group are
now lined up under Federal regula
tions," eaid Mr. Child, in comment
ing on his tour. "I feel that the or
ders of the food administration will
be uniformly obeyed, that there will
be no 'profiteering and everything
will now run with reasonable smooth

less Wednesday from Washington that
his appointment to be judge of the

rangements for his new home and
business there. It is the intention Of
Judge Edings to return to Wailuku to
morrow or Sunday, and he will prob
ably leave in about a week to re
main away permanently.
There seems to be an opinion in
Washington and at Honolulu that
Judge Edings, will not remain long
on the circuit bench at Honolulu, but
will very soon be appointed to the
"Chimes Of Normandy"
The feature of this week-end in

Benefit Of French War
Former Governor George It. Carter
will come to Maui next week for the
purpose of showing a collection of
French war films which are describ
es ns simply wonderful, giving a vivid
idea of the war as it is today.

Walter Dillingham, who was on the
ground. The proceeds of admission,
as well as a collection, which will be
taken up by Governor Carter at the
end of the performance, will go to pro
viding for children in France whose
fathers have been killed and whose
mothers are unable to look after
The films are an education in them
selves and well worth seeing.
The theater for the night will be
in charge of Mr. Frank F. Baldwin,
while Mr. H. D. Fenhallow will have
charge of the advertising of the enter
tainment in Wailuku.
The pictures show the immense
quantity of ammunition used, big
guns in action and a real fight in the
air, the latter being extremely inter
esting. Jfed Cross Drive
The next drive for Red Cross funds
will take place the week ending May
11, and will be for $100,000,000. The

tributed, so that $150,000 more must
