' MAKAWELI SCHOOL School opened September 12th with more pupils than we had at the close of school in June. We were pleased to see all children on time, neatly dress ed and ready for work. This shows that the mothers are interested as well as the children and the teach ers. All of us working together can make our school one of the best in Hawaii. Several of the teachers did not come at the beginning of school but the ladles of Makawell very kindly offered to help us out. This was a real help, which we appreciated. Mrs. Marcallino was detained in Honolulu because of her baby's ill ness. However, she arrived the sec ond week of school. The new members of our teaching staff are: Miss Anna Scott, Washington. Miss Alice Covert, California. Miss Margaret Thomson, Texas. Miss Gladys Glisson, Arizona. Miss Beatrice Lind, Minnesota. Miss Adelaide Fernandes, Makawell. Joseph Fernandes, Waimea. The athletics started oft with a snap both in the boys and girls' teams. Mr. Damkroger is directing this and has appointed Mr. Fernandes to take charge of the boys while Miss Scott will assist the girls. Although we are disappointed not to be in our new school building, still we would not be sportsmanlike if we did not put forth more efforts because of unfavorable conditions. This let us all do and have a fine school in spite of old buildings. Two new cottages have been erect ed on the new grounds and Mr. Fer nandes and the boys are busy get ting out hedges, grass and flowers. The very first day our public school opened, September 12th, a regular program of physical education started similar to previous years, under the supervision of Mr. Damkroger. Phy sical exercises are given daily as well as supervised athletics and games. The playground ball schedule, put out by the Kauai Public School Ath letic League, started September 30th. Both the boys' and girls' team are go ing to try hard to win the island cham pionship. Our pnrt o ftho schedule is: September 30 Makawell vs. Kala heo, at Kalaheo. October 7 Makawell vs. Kekaha, at Makawell. October 14 Makawell vs. Waimea, at Makawell. October 21 Makawell vs. Eleelo, at Eleele. November 10 Champions of Dis trict 2 and 3 meet. November 18 Champions of Dis trict 1 and winners of 2 and 3 meet to decide the island championship. Makawell school belongs to District one. During the month the schedules of playground ball were run off, two for the boys and one for the girls. The school teams will be chosen from these players. ing for the construction and purchase of three big seaplanes which he plans to operate between the islands. On the eve of his departure from Honolu lu, Mr. Palmerston declared emphat ically that the inter-Island airplane service would be inaugurated in the immediate future. The following statement of Mr. Palmerston's plans is taken from .the Pasadena Star-News and the Pasa dena Evening Post of recent date: "Airplanes built in Pasadena are to be put on inter-Island service in the Hawaiian islands, according to C. C. Palmerston, who returned to Pasadena from Honolulu yesterday. Mr. Palmerston spent two months in a survey of the possibilities of an airplane line connecting the islands of Hawaii, Maui, Oahu and Kauai. He is probably convinced of the profit able operation of airplanes in this ser vice, and intends to use flying boats designed by G. Edward Barnhart and manufactured at the West Green-st. factory of Barnhart Aircraft, Inc. "A very complete system of air transportation has been worked out by Mr. Palmerston, with Honolulu as the main port. One route is planned to be flown from Honolulu to Hilo with intermediate stops, another flight will be to Nawlliwili on the Is land of Kauai from Honolulu, while a third will make a scenic tour of the islands. "Mr. Palmerston went to Hawaii to look into tho feasibility of establish ing a line of flying boats for passen ger and express transportation. De- fore leaving Pasadena he secured the plans of new airplanes designed by G. E .Barnhart of this city, and laid his plans on a special basis worked out by Mr. Barnhart and C. Robert Little, the builder of the "Wampus Kat" bl-plane. Mr. Palmerston went over all -possible routes and spent two months in securing data. He return ed enthusiastic over the practical fea tures of a main airline between Hono lulu and Hilo and secondary routes to other island points, and is arrang ing his plans for the purchase of three Barnhart airplanes. "These will be especially built for the Hawaiian service, and each equip ped with two Hall-Scott motors of 250 horsepower. They will carry a pilot and engineer and eight passengers with luggage and mail matter. The hulls will be of the most approved fly ing boat type with large cabins for the passengers. Several safety feat ures devised by Mr. Barnhart and providing for elimination of any dan ger from fire, a greater stability in rough weather and much longer lifo of the engines, will be in the equip ment, and each machine will be cap able of flying 125 miles on one en gine alone. The longest flight to be made will be about 200 miles, which wil lbe made in less than three hours, although eighteen to twenty hours are now required on the steamboat lino. No sustained flight of more than 80 miles will be required, so that the airplanes will have plenty of reserve even if compelled to fly on but one of the two engines." AIRPLANE SERVICE COMING TO KAUAI In a short time, according to C. C. Palmerston, residents of Kauai can eat their breakfast on the Garden Is land and then be In Honolulu by the time the banks open in the morn ing.. No more seasickness, no more night rides. Simply a little joy ride In the morning and we are sporting along Fort street. Palmerston has just spent a couple of months in Honolulu and is now back in California getting his planes, according to the Star-Bulletin. Hero is what they say: C. C. Palmerston, aviation engineer who recently spent two months In Hawaii Investigating the possibilities of an inter-island airplane service, is now in Pasadena, California, arrang- Plating Makes Old Things New Again Silver which has become dull and tarnished enn he restored to its original beauty by silver plating.
