LATEST FORD PRICES
LOWEST IN HISTORY
While everybody in the country
including President Harding is talk
ing about the return to normalcy.
Henry Ford as usual did not talk
much about normalcy until ho had
done something about getting back.
His famous slash in prices that forp
ed practically every car in tho mar
ket to follow suit Is now history and
his still recent cut is almost forgot
ten by tho reading public, being tak
en as a matter of course.
Many prospective Ford owners
when approached about purchasing,
the reply that they are going to
wait until there Is a further re
duction in price, as they believe
that it will not bo long before the.
Ford Is back to tho pre-war level.
Just for contrast wo are offering
a comparison of the prico of the
1914 Ford at the factory with the
present factory price. It being un
derstood that tho present price re
presents tho price of a tourinc car
without self starter and domountablo
wheels. This is necessary to make
an accurate comparison, as the 19l4
iFord was not equipped with a self
starter or demountable wheels as
the present car is:
The 1914 factory price, J3G0.
Tho 1921 factory price, $355.
This price is tho lowest In tho
history of the Ford Motor Co. and
it can bo easily seen that any fur
ther reduction will necessarily
have to como in a reduction of
freight rates or tho elimination of
tho war tax.
Freight rates from Detroit to tho
Hawaiian Islands are now moro than
double the rate In 1914 and tho war
tax is an additional five per cent
that the consumer Is forced to pay.
This coupled with the fact that the
car now has additional equipment
in the self starter and demountable
wheels Is the reason for tho present
prico of the Universal Car.
KAPAIA CHINESE DIES
Startling tennis was tho watch
word at tho Sloggott court last Sun'
day when Dwight Baldwin earned
his way into tho finals by defeating
Albert Horner in threo Bets by the
scoro of C-3, G-3, C-3. It is not un
usual in a tennis match that tho
scoro of tho sots does not indicate
the class of tennis played, and It
can safoly be said that the scoro of
last Sunday by no means shows tho
battle that was fought by tho two
playors. Dwight was driving in great
form and was getting his drives in.
Jack kept busy playing his steady
game, fighting a gamo uphill bat
tle ngalnst heavy odds for when
Dwight is right, and ho was right
last Sunday, It is doubtful if there
is a man on Kauai who can beat
There was no doubt to any spec
tator who was tho better man last
Sunday but Jack was never beaten
until tho last game was played in
the third set. Jack was defeated
but it was a glorious defeat, for
ho went down fighting to tho last
against a superior opponent.
Jack played wonderful tennis and
as one veteran fan put It, ho never
was in better form than he was last
Frank Burns and Foster Horner,
only played four games in their first
set when Jupiter Pluvius stepped in
and called a halt. Tho scoro was two
all when tho rain stopped tho pro
ceedings. They will fight it out at
the same place next Thursday after
noon at 4 o'clock to decide who will
meet Dwight Baldwin in tho finals.
Entries for the doublo tournament
are coming in slow and a peculiar
fact about the entries is that all the
games in tho last threo rounds of
tho singles have been played In LI-
huo, but thero has been no doubles
teams entered from Llhue. Three
teams were promised from Kilauea
but as yet no entries have been re
ceived. It behooves those that have
an Intention of entering to get busy
and send tholr names to Dr. Glais
AS BASEBALL EXITS
Tho local soccer season Is already
taking form and now that tho base
ball season is pau and the Makees
have the cup, local fans are begin
ning to talk about center halves In
stead of second basemen and about
penalty kicks instead of bases on
"Boot tho ball, Handy!' is now
heard instead of "take Mm out," rnd
tho thump of the football is by far
moro common than tho crack of the
Makaweli and McBryde are out
practicing two nights a week, but
so far no activity has been shown
in Llhue. Koloa is practicing and
intends to enter a team and h.ivo
already arranged a practico grime
with McBryde on the 23rd. McBryde
will also meet Makaweli in a prac
tice game which will bo played on
tho Eleelo field on the ICth.
There will bo quite a number
of new faces on the field this yaar
but a few of tho old timers like
Sinclair, Carmlchrael, Rlchter, Mar
cellino, Catton and Glalsyor will be
ready when tho whlstlo blows to
start the season.
Chu Kong who was proprietor of
tho Sun Hong Chong store, died of

RADIUM ORE GIVES
PEP TO VEGETATION
SAYS BURBANK AID
Badlum ore may become one of
tho leading fertilizers for trees and
plants as a result of experiments
being made from tho ore mined in
Colorado, according to the Advei Us
er. Luther Burbank, tho California
"plant wizard," will uso radium ore
in experiments to develop new
plants, according to Henry A. Adrian,
associate of Burbank, who recently
Investigated tho value of radium ore
In aiding nature.
Experiments made in Colorado, it
Is declared, indicate that the use of
radium ore around tho rootB of new
ly planted trees has resulted In a
wonderfully rapid growth ot popalrs.
Experiments with sweet peas and
othor plants and flowers show, It Is
said, that tho use of the radium ore
results In much faster growth and '
more luxurious bloom than those not
treated with radium ore.
The belief is expressed hero that
radium action has the same effect
upon plant life as upon human life,
stimulating tho healthy tissues, so
that they develop faster and over
come any tendency to become dis
eased, gradually overpowering tho
weakness of tho diseased tissues sur
Badlum ore, it is declared, can bo
sold profitably at $100 a ton, and,
as only a fraction of a pound Is ne
cessary for the fertilization of a tree
it Is believed the ore can bo readily
marketed for fertilization purposes.
