THE MAUI NEWS, FRIDAY, AUGUST 5, 1921. . With the Alert a A Rov Smuts nf Mnni j 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 above. "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." The Big Hike "Zip Zip Zowie, Zip Zip Zowie, "Makawao, Makawao, Troop Six Maui". 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 lows : Canteen, cooking-kit, heavy blan ket, poncho, change of clothes, scout uniform, ax, knife, fifteen foot lash ing, chow for seven meals and three feeds of grain for his . mount.

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 down alongside of a big rocK Pop and Sam snuggled close to gether wrapped in two blankets and a noncho. But, o h, the wind was cold and sharp and soon poor Pop had the good taste to take a tine oia iasnion ed chill. Rattle, click, rattle went his noor old bones and teeth. An hour of cold and misery and sudden ly, "Look Pop, what's that", says Sam. Pop crawled to his shaKy teet and there. Oh Glory, a great big blaz ing bon fire just above us on the brink of the mountain. Quickly grab bing a flash light we signalled in the direction of the blaze. Back canw the flashing answer and soon shouts were heard above the roar of the wind SJnrm thprn annPA red around the ! corner of the great rock the smiling face of Arizuml the Japanese guide of Haleakala, and George Marciel and Antone Apo, the two trusty scouts of Makawao. The horse and mule were soon saddled and Pop Kt.;ltly climbed into the saddle and we were o:T ior the top. Just a mile and wo wert in the midst of a laughing, cheer inn happy bunch of scouts. , strong drink of hot coffee una a sandwich and then into the buni:, cov ;ied with about five heavy blanket.;. Note The main body of scout with Mr. Cameron and Mr Puck reach ed the Kest House at 6 p. m. Pop and Sam arrived at 1 a. m. There was a reason. (Continued next week.)

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 of Haleakala. 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. Bougainvillea 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. Morning Glory Troop Always on time and full of fun. these girls are ready for frolic and works. This week they finished their crests and then, oh what a lark, play ing games! Long ball seems to be quite popular and the girls are learn ing the finest points of it very rapid ly.
