MAUI COUNTY'S FAIR (Honolulu Star-Bulletin) LOOKS LIKE WISE Maui county, hustling and wide-visioned, sets aside three daysj for its annual fair October 12, 13 and 14. Past experience has taught the Maui people how to do things! with the minimum of fuss and the maximum of results. They have dug down in their pockets and built a splendid fair grounds with commodious buildings, big grandstand, race-track, paddock; with wide driveways, spacious lawns and a remarkably fine electric light-' ing system. J With this fine physical plant, they are developing their annual fairs substantially. Maui's livestock is a credit to the entire terri tory. Its gardens rank high in variety and excellence of products. EDITOR l1'gs an chickens and ducks arc high-grade. -I Best of all, the growing generation of Maui citizens is learning ineffaceable lessons of immense practical value. One of those lessons 'is how Maui can produce most of its own necessary foodstuffs. An other is the lesson of community team-work. Honolulu businesses ought to be well represented as exhibitors at the Maui fair. 3800 Americans To Die Tomorrow Statistics show that in America 3800 persons die daily, as an average. This year nearly a million four hundred thousand will pass on. You may be one of them but there is no use worrying and the best way to end worry as to what may become of your dependents if you should go is to take out a policy of life insurance now.

The members want to meet the Maui Cham ber of Commerce, will visit the Haleakala Rest house and spend about not strengthen him with the legislative candidates who had expect ed a chance to be heard at least. In Honolulu it is regarded as a foregone conclusion that Wise will carry that City and County. The sentiment is swinging more towards him every day. In the capital city charges of "slush funds" for various candi dates are being circulated freely and bandied back and forth and denied from the same platform. It is regarded as certain in Honolulu that president of the last thm' da-vs m a look 800 of Maui s,''Hi,y. senate and Senator P.ob Shingle will be retunud but there is a good deal of guess work as to who will be the others.

In Hawaii ment that can be exercised. Lyman is expected to lead. I On the Oarden Island the reelection of Senator Charley Rice is considered certain. On the Hig Island there is a doubtful situation. Desha is counted on by many to lead the ticket and some forecasts are made that Russell will manage to get by. This appears the summary of the delegate and senatorial situa tion. That of the house of representatives is far more complex.

WHAT TO EAT Recently there was run an editorial in the New York Herald which was reproduced in the Honolulu Advertiser one morning this week on the much mooted subject of light or heavy breakfasts for the ordinary business man. The Herald took the view that it was a matter for each person to determine a matter of taste or of habit. Perhaps there Avill come a time when hard and fast rules will be laid down as to what a person should eat, how much and when, but when, if ever that time does conic, it will take much of the pleasure out of living. What and when to eat is, as the Herald said, a matter of prefer ence but also a matter of habit. Persons are frequently heard to say they cannot eat heartily in the morning. Others insist they are not ready for work until they have had a substantial breakfast. Those who eat little could if they would become heavy morning eaters. Perhaps those who start the day with a heavy meal might in time get accustomed to working on a light breakfast. Nature can usually be depended to do things about right. What a man craves in food is probably what his system needs, unless he has perverted his natural appetite through over indulgence. The matter of callories, vitamines and other similar subjects in connection with diets are more or less fads. Every man and every woman enjoyed a good meal of the viands1 he or she likes and when hard and fast rules arc laid down, it would : i ... ' 1 make man more ot a machine to be regulated by others. Against that the ego will rebel. There is an inherent indepence for which every human being will fight. Without doubt the would be regulators of diet mean well but the world would be better contented without them and the average man doesn't care a whoop about the scientific proportions or con tents of food provided he gets enough and it tastes good to him.

HONOLULU. o w a THE HULA QUESTION It is reported that the Mayor of Los Angeles did not like the hula dancing that was a part of the program in the "Night on Maui," staged for the entertainment of the visitors. Maui is sorry that he saw anything during his stay that did not please him. On the other hand the hula dancing did entertain a large proportion of the visit ors and from the volume of applause it appeared to be popular with the majority. Just at present there is a movement in Honolulu, started by liornn A. Ihurston, owner oi the Advertiser to relegate the hula! to the background and out of sight in public entertainments. He! insists that it is vulgar and indecent and not typical of the best of old Hawaii. On the other hand it is insisted that many mainlanders! want to see the dance rendered here and would be disappointed if! they did not. Without doubt it could be and can be as vulgar and! indecent as Mr. Thurston insists it is. j -Maui News is not taking up the cudgels with Mr. Thurston! against the hula. Jlawaiians themselves, however, like to see it, of i at least some of them do appear to consider it a perfectly appropri-' ate part of an entertainment. Ones similar to that shown the Los! Angeles visitors have been shown on Maui within the past year oni several occasi, ns and until now there has been, no public criticism! of it offered. It is probable that had not the subject of grass skirts: and hulas been piecipiated in Honolulu just before the arrival of the visitors, there would have been no open criticism now. ; Two boys and one woman danced the hula that Mayor Cryer1 is reported to have objected to. Probably the majority of those' who attended the entertainment, kamaainas and malahinis enjoyed it and considered it appropriate for the place it was given on the5 program. i Mr. Thurston admits that the dance was commonly danced dur-' ing the reign of lalakaua. The entertainment was intended to de-! pict "Old Maui," the visitors could see for themselves the Maui of today. Costumes, staging and action were all descriptive of other' days in which the hula was a source of entertainment. Hence the! criticism ajfuumt the Maui entertainment appears to be hardly called I hat o As your motor begins to "warm up," what happens to the oil? It thins, of course. But just how does it thin and how does it act when subjected to the high operating temperatures ? Upon the answer to that question depends the proper lubrication of your car. Zerolene, being made from selected crudes and scientif ically refined by our patented vacuum process, resists engine heat; it retains its lubricating "body" at all op erating temperatures. It does not decompose or "break town." It clings to the bearing surfaces and maintains a perfect film of lubricant. qA Minimum of Soft, Flaky Carbon If the motor is getting proper lubrication, some oil slips past the pistons and is consumed by the flame of com bustion. In burning, all oils deposit carbon on the cylin der walls and cylinder heads. Inferior oils deposit a hard, gritty carbon in considerable quantity. It is this hard carbon deposit which causes pre-ignition, breaking and sticking of cylinder rings, overhearing, ldBs of power, warping and splitting of exhaust valves, and wear of valve stems. Zerolene deposits a minimum of carbon of a soft, flaky nature which can do no damage and is usually blown out with the exhaust Lubricate exclusively with Zerolene, adopting the rec ommendations embodied in the Zerolene chart of recom mendations, and you will develop the maximum power, speed and gasoline mileage of your car.
