    Keen rivalry existed among the candidates as tho vigorous campaign- ing indulged In for tho' past week had all tho voters talking 'about it, resulting in a meeting that was ex- ceedingly lively, although orderly. Kawaihau certainly does not have to play second fiddle to any dls- -

    George S. Bliss, superintendent of tho Territorial Homo for Feeble- minded Persons, at Pearl City, Oa-lu- i.

    was a visitor to Kauai on Friday and Saturday of last week. During his stay ho gave two lectures ono to tho Mokihana Club on "What tho Presence of Feeblemindedness Means to Our Community," and tho oth- er to the Social Servico Association

    nurses In tho districts.

    Based on statistics gathered in the United States, ono per cent of the population at ho present time is feeble-minde- averred Dr. Bliss. To handle this situation adequately will bo a tremendous strain upon tho tax payers of tho country, and as tho inheritance of feoblemind-nes- s

    is established as a certain fact tho problem grows ever a large one. It Is now the greatest social problem confronting us. At least half the cases handled by our so olal workers and by our jails aro those of feebleminded persons. If, however, wo could segregate such casus so that no additional feeble minded children should bo born to them, wo could within 50 years re duce feeblemindedness by 75 per cent.
