I ESTABLISHED 1904. VOL. 18. NO. 11. LIHUE, KAUAI, TERRITORY OF HAWAII, TUESDAY. MARCH 14, 1922 ' SUBSCRIPTION RATES, $2.50 PER YEAR 5 CENTS PER COPY S. W. WILCOX 3hmp I anil Kauaians Get A Chance to See Kalalau by Sea Hoo ray! On April 8th wo, wilt nil tnko a day off and boo Kalalau. And wo wont havo to hlko our legs off an a dangerous trail to do It either. Wo'll Just sit still on tho good ship Klnnu and sco tho sights in stylo. It's only going to cost us six bucks per each to do It too. It's this way. Nearly ovcrybody on the Island wants to sco Kalalau and havo wanted to boo It for yours. But It is a hard, dangerous hlko and it is now an impossible horseback rldo. So a lot of people havo been wondering why tho Inter Island didn't send a boat up and havo an excursion around tho In land. That Is Just exactly what Is goin? to tako place. That Is, wo think that it is. It Is if 125 peoplo want to go. Tho Inter-Island can't afford to send a boat for fewer passongurs than that. But It probably won't be any trick at all to get moro than that many to go. Tho following letter from It. W. Smith of tho passenger department of the Inter-Island tells all about this proposition: ''Having received a suggestion from tho people of Kauai that this company run an excursion around tho island of Kauai, tho S. S. Klnau will bo dispatched from Waimea about 7 a. m., on Saturday, April 8th, touching at Nawiliwill for ad ditional passengers about 9 a. m. and then to continue around tho island, passing Hanalel bay and tho Na Pall cliffs. Passengers making the trip will disembark later In the afternoon of tho same day at Waimea and Ko loa, from which latter port tho steamer will proceed to Honolulu. "Tickets may bo procured from Mr. Plckard, our agent at Nawiliwill- at $6 each und it will bo ne cessary to have 125 .tickets sold prior to April 3fd in order that tho proper arrangements can bo mado at Honolulu for the trip. In tho event of tho required number of bookings not being obtained, money will bo refunded to thoso having purchased tickets."

Hawaiian Civic Club of Kauai Two weeks ngo last Sunday, some of tho leading IIawailans called a mooting which was held at Koloa for tho purposo f considering 'tho advisability of forming n club am ongst the Hawallans of this Island to promote community spirit and unity, and to get behind movements for tho best lntorosts of this Is lnnd or of tho various communities In which they live. A number of Hawallans from Hnnalel to Waimea mot at tho Koloa church and listen ed to Mr. Lota discourse on tho subject of unity. After tho church sorvlco, the Koloa boys invited tho malahinls to go over to Mr. Blako's house and invcstlgato puaa and pol. After luncheon, Mr. Crowoll of Waimea explained tho Idea of gath ering and a temporary organization was affected with Mr. Crowoll as president and Mr. Blako as secro tary. Tho secretary was instructed to get in touch with tho Hawaiian Civic Club of Honolulu and got from them a copy of their constitution. The me'eting then adjourned to meot again in Kapaa two weeks later. Last Sunday at the Hawaiian hall at Kapaa, tho permanent organiza tion of tho club was effected. Over 70 leading Hawallans, men and wo men, wero present and took active part in tho work of- organizing. Tho officers of the now club aro W. O. Crowell, president; J. M. Kaneakua, secretary; S. W.

A study of the list of officers and committee chairmen, who will prob ably form tho executive commltteo of the club will reveal tho fact that a movement for the unity of the Hawallans and for the promotion of community spirit is in safe hands. It Is the intontion of thoso who havo become members to bury tho hatchet and got behind every pro position for tho progress of Kauai as well ns the smaller communities In which they as members reside. They will also delvo into questions which involve terrltorial-wldo activities, if necessary. At tho church sorvlco preceding the organization of tho club, Lota again, gave ono of his holpful lec tures on tho need of getting togeth er; Frank Wooloy, who came in dur ing tho organization of tho club, was invited by tho president to address tho gathering. Ho also emphasized tho need of getting together ami of preparing to meet tho needs of tho future. Ho dwelt on tho rehabili tation project about to bo launched on Molkal, and advised his audi enco not to wait until tho last min ute boforo thinking about tho pro ject, but rather to plan at this tlmo to send tho best men who can bo picked up to go to Molokal to tako up this project; men who aro not afraid to work. When ho stoppod talking without having said anything about tho dolegatcshlp, ho was urg ed to speak again on tho question of tho fitness of tho various can didates. His explanation why Mr. Baldwin should bo elected was en thusiastically received by his hear ers.

LIHUE GRAMMAR SCHOOL CARNIVAL The tenchers and pupils of tho Lihue grammar school staged a car nival on tho night of Mnrch 10th at tho Llhuo armory. To say that it was a success would be llko say ing that mother's lemon pic Is fairly good. It was a roaring suc cess. People swarmed In and out of tho armory and St. Peter will never bo moro popular than tho ticket seller at the gato. However It was ono of tho most orderly crowds Ll huo has ever seen. There was no unseomingly conduct at any time during tho evening, everyone appar notly realizing what an effort was being put forth to mako tho even ing a success. That tho commltteo on food had tremendously undorated tho appe ties of tho fathers and mothers of their young hopefuls was proven when tho ice cream booth and tho' hot-dog stand had to close their doors early in tho evening and put up a placard with the letters "N. S. F,'" meaning not sufficient food. And in proportion to tho rush on those booths were tho efforts to obtain admission to t,ho various side shows. "A Hawaiian Night" was tho most popular, and close second camo the minstrel show. The Danco of tho Nations appealed immensely aa did the Punch and Judy show. The mothers and fathers as well as the children had all to tako a chance on Hitting tho Nigger Baby and tho hypnotism booth got its share of tickets. Everybody was so anxious to tako a chanco in tho fish pond, that it was all sold out and closed up ono hour after the carnival had begun. Each and ovoryono seemed anxious to learn from tho Gypsy fortune teller what fato had ' In store for him. And then for tho peoplo who wero not lucky enough to bo able to get Into any show thoio was the jitnoy dance, which grew moro and moro popular as tho ovenlng wore on. Tho school could hardly show too much appreciation to tho children who gave every ounce of their loy alty and onergy to this project nor to tho teachers who gave so much of their time to tho direction and management of it: ' Tho kindly .ef forts of tho peoplo of tho community who gavo of their tlmo and more material things should not bo for gotten. Over $500 was taken In and all but about $50 of this Is clear prof it, thanks to donations of lumber, music, cakes and candles: This money is to go for tho construction of playground apparatus in tho now Llhuo grammar school grounds.
