Land Commissioner Bailey in Favor of the Park Addition At tho last regular meeting of tho Kauai Chamber of Commerce J. M. Lydgate . proposed that an ad dition be made to tho present Polla hu park. The addition would Include a small tract of land along tho Wal lua river- nnd would take in laud on which somo of tho famous his toric spots, such as tho birth stone, are located.

Bailey, com missioner of public lands. That this proposed addition will In nil probability be allowed is In dicated In tho following letter from Mr. Bailey, addressed to the Cham ber of Commerce: "In regard to tho proposed addi tion to Poliahu Park, Walalua, Ka uai, please bo informed that I have recommended to Governor Farrlng ton thdt the desired area bo set aside for park purposes and havo re quested the territorial survey office to furnish a description of the same for use in preparing tho executive order." AMERICAN LEGION HOLDS MEETING AT COURT HOUSE Tho regular monthly meeting of Kauai Post No. 2, American Legion, was held in tho county courthouse last Saturday evening. In spite of tho. rival attraction In the Kauai county fair, this was the best at tended meeting of tho post this year. At this meeting final action was taken on the plans to remodel tljo armory. The original plans called for supporting the root with a bIii- glo truss thereby eliminating tho center row of posts. This would have meant about 25 feet from the floor to tho celling and the width would havo been tho same as tho pres ent outer walls. These plans wore attractive In that they required an outlay of about only $2000, but on tho advice of tho county engineer, had to he discarded because ho be lieved that the roof would not .stand tho heavy winds sometimes folt at Llhuo. The second sot of plans calls for a roof supported by a single truss and there will bo a row of posts In the building nine feet from each wall. These posts aro not objection able because there is still ample floor sp.ico to lay out an Indoor baseball diamond and baskotball court. Along tho sides of tho wall will bo built four or five tiers of permanent scats, making It possible for a largo audience to get an un restricted view of any sport in prog ress. These plans wero submitted to lo cal contractors and tho bids open od on Saturday morning. Coney & Morris were awarded tho contract, the sum being $3000. C. A. Baggott was appointed the chairman of the committee of tho American Legion armory fund. During tho meeting a resolution was passed to express tho thanks of Kauai Post to R. F. Middleton, .county engineer, and John Waiamuu, asisstant county engineer, who drew up the plans and specifications for remodeling the armory without charge to the Legion.

Tho fruits on tho plunts wero on exhibition were largo In size, larger than the desirable canning size, but they showed how careful cultivation and proper fer tilization nno' increaso tonnage.
