SCOUT OFFICIALS AND
SCOUTS TAKE NOTICE
' A letter has been received by the
commissioner from Mr. II. L. Kelly,
fish and game commissioner, with the
following notice enclosed:
"For the extermination of mongoose
a liberal bounty will be paid to all
scouts and others. There will also be
cash prizes in addition, of $25.00, $20..
00, $15.00. $10.00 and $3.00. Who will
get in and earn some easy money.
"To secure the bounty applicants
must deliver to the tax assessor of
the taxation division, within which
he resides, the mongoose heads, upon
which bounty is to be claimed. The
applicant is required to swear to a
statement specifying the amount of
the bounty claimed and that the mon
goose were killed inside of sixty days
and within the said taxation district.
The tax assessor will forward this
affidavit and certificate to the treasur
er who will thereupon issue a war
rant to the applicant for the amount
due. As these public officials can't
afford to be bothered by persons
bringing in a scalp or two every few
days, it is suggested that every one
competing for the above prizes should
cure the heads by placing them in r
strong brine, or splitting the ehad.
sprinkle with salt and dry them. They
can then be taken to the assessor ev
ery live or six weeks.
"After each quarter agents of the
Fish and Game Commission will
check up the number of scalps sent
in, and forward to the supervis
or the names of 'the five send
ing in the greatest number for the
quarter. To them the supervisors will
send checks in the amounts as stated
"In the same way at the end of the
year the five who have sent in thfl
most scalps will receive checKs of
$30.00, $40.00, $35.00, $30.00 and $25.00
respectively. Remember you get 3 5
cents for each head and then cash
prizes as well. For further det.uls
address the commissioner at W'ai-luku."

Loud and lustily burst the yell from
the throats of 13 husky scouts, on
Sunday, July 24 at 3:00 p.m. All
were mounted on horses and mules
and completely equipped for a six
days strenuous ride.
Each scout was equipped as fol

ket, poncho, change of clothes, scout
uniform, ax, knife, fifteen foot lash

course there was an American flag.
For at least two months the llronco
Busters of Makawao had been pre
paring for this eventful day. Three
and four times a week the Commis
sioner and Mr. Frank Langa, their
new scoutmaster, had been training
the troop In first aid stunts, lifts,
carries, pyramids, yells and singing.
And now the great day bad arrived
and the start made.
All this seems as if it .lust happen
ed, but, the one most important fea
ture of the whole plan was horses.
Where under the sun were the scouts
to get enough horses to make the
trip. Hurrah, to the rescue came our
great big hearted genial troop com
mitteeman. Chairman Sam Kalama, of
the board of supervisors. All
been arranged, so we all thought, but
behold at the last moment it was
found we were short at least six
horses. Gloom and despair was pic
lured on the faces of six scouts.
"What's the matter boys?" Thus
spoke our fairy God-father Sam Kala
ma. The situation was explained.
"None of my boys are going to be
left behind, I'll be back here at 12:30
get all ready to start."
At 1:30 p.m. the troop started from
Makawao. Some on horses, some on
mules and some in autos. Uy the
time Olinda had been reached all
were mounted and ready for the start
to the top of old Haleakala.
At Olinda they were met by Mr. F.
13. Cameron of the finance committee,
Mr. Chas. A. Tuck a member of the
Maui Council and commissioner Hut
ton. Our genial president C. I. Luf
kin who was spending the week end
at Olinda gave the boys a hearty
greeting and God-speed on the trip.
The following scouts composed the
party: George Marciel, senior patrol
leader; Antone Apo, scribe; Louis
Marciel. John Paiva, Louis de Costa,
John Fernandez, Albert Pacheco,
George Sakemoto, Louis Waiwaiole,
Sam Lono, George Brown, Joe Holo
maleo, Henry de Rego.
Sunday, July 24th 3 p.m., we left
Olinda bound for the rest house. In
the lead were Mr. Puck and Mr. Cam
eron who were familiar with the
trails. Along behind them came the
scouts in single file, and bringing up
the rear was the commissioner, to
see that no one fell behind.
Many were the stops to tighten up
the cinches, shift cargo, rest animals,
and well, we had some of 'em balky
mules. Of all the ornery, pesky, good
tor-nothing, well what's the use. The
commissioner is writing this account
and he has a reason for making the
above statement. This is the why of
It all; first it was the mule ridden by
George Brown, he was slow, the sad
dle would not stay in place, he was
Inclined to turn and point for home,
in fact do everything that we thought
he ought not to do. Then it was the
pesky beast ridden by gooa naiurea
Sam Lono. He balked, he side step
ped, he stopped, yes mostly stopped.
Lone aeo the rest of the party had
disappeared up the mountain trail.
Pop tied a long lead rope around the
mules neck and then in real cowboy
style fastened the other end to the
Dommel of his own saddle, run, tug
yank, yell, etc., no response. Eight
o'clock arrived and quick darkness.
Oh ye Gods, alone on the side of a
cold, windy desolate mountain. Far
from home and mother. We made
the best of it by tying the animals up
to some scrubs, removing the saddles
and luggage and smuggling down

Ahoy! "Olinda Aloha!" This is
the name which the Girl Scouts have
given their camp located in the big
eucalyptus grove Just west of the
Olinda rservoir. Eighteen registered
Girl Scouts piled into a big Puunene
plantation truck last Monday and
started out for the Hist camping ex
peiience ol tlielr lives. Permission
had been obtained from KalenkBla
Ranch to camp, and on the Saturday
previous Mrs. Deinert, secretary ol
the Girl Scout Council, Miss Seibert,
the new director, anf other friends
had gone, up and prepared the camp
lo receive t he girls. They found five
big army tents all set up for sleep
ing purposes, a cook tent and good
hot chow all ready on the army range
Unit had been installed. There was
much scrambling and running around
to discover the new wonders of the
big eucalyptus grove and enjoy the
wonderful scenery and then the camp
was called to order and organized.
The girls were organized into
squads, keeping friends together as
much as possible, and assigned to
their tents, after which they had
lunch. After lunch the girls had
their first lesson in camp lore, and
learned how to stake out their tents,
ditch them in case of rain, and roll
up the flaps so as to get good ventila-
lon. l lie big camp rule is "In times
of sunshine, prepare for rain." The
cool breezes and the wonderful sun
shine lent such zest to their work
mat they were soon through and
ready for play on the erassv slones
Next day the camp was formally or
ganized and the name was chosen
Olinda Aloha Camp. The organization
of the camp is as follows: a director
.diss Frances L. Seibert: nurse. Miss
Mildred Sproul; councillors, Mrs. Han
sen, Mrs. Deinert and Mrs. J T. Tay
lor; color guard (changed each day);
kitchen squad (changed each davl:
cook; publicity committee, Esther
Wong, Wilhelmina Ornellas and Doro
thy Cup Choy; entertainment com
mittee (changed each day.)
Altogether there are 30 persons in
camp: six children taken up by Mrs.
Hansen, Mrs. Taylor and Mrs. Dein
ert, the six adults and 18 registered
scouts. More scouts are expected un
for the second week. Those that
want to go had better hurry and give
their names to Miss Rita Rosecrans
at Paia, or there may not be room
for them in the camp.
The 18 scouts have been organized
into two teams for playing off a series
of baseball and volley games. The
Olinda team is eaptaiped by Dorothy
Cup Choy and the Idlewild team by
Wilhelmina Ornellas. On Tuesday the
resulted in a 27-17 score In favor, oi
the Olinda team.
Fortunately there has been plenty
of rain up in the ditch country and
the reservoir is now overflowing, so
that the girls have been able to dam
up a pool and take a plunge.
Those who attended the M. A. Co.,
Tehater last Friday evening were re
warded by seeing some very good
dancing and hearing good singing.
Sixteen of Paia's girls were doing
their best towards entertaining and
they certainly did well for a just at
tempt. Miss Seibert very kindly
came up and gave the girls their
tenderfoot pins which have been due
them for Bometime.
The only regret was the fact that
as it was a non-show night on the
regular calendar and the majority of
people forgot the date and so the
house was not crowded.
