Special Star-Bulletin Correspondence
WAILUKU, Oct. 12. The Hama
kuapoko circle of the Maui Library
Association was formed this week
with eleven members. The pldMa
kawao book club is now merged into
the Maul Library Association with
headquarters at the Library in Wai
luku. From now. on smaller circles
will be formed in each district that
formerly composed the Makawao read
ing circle. The books will be passed
as previously, family to family, each
family keeping the book two weeks.
In addition to this circle book, books
can be secured from the Paia Store,
where Manager Rosecrans bas very
generously offered to have the store
attend to the distribution of books
that may be wanted in addition to
those that are passed in the circles.
This is a decided advantage to all
the members, as in this way the books
can be circulated a far as Kula, and
into the homestead region of Pauwela
and Haiku. It is expected that a very
large number of books will be sent
out week by week. The members in
all the circles have the privilege of
selecting their own books, by passing
in lists desired to the central book
committee of the Library. This cen
tral committee purchases the books
and sends them to the circle mem
bers; who have the first reading of
them. When one round of books is
completed, then these are returned to
the central library and a new set of
books from another circle will be
send the rounds in the circle that
have returned their1 books. In addi
tion to these books available, it is ex
Dected that books will be sent from
(the Honolulu Library which memoers
can obtain from the library in Wai-
luku. Over 200O volumes at present
constitute the ranking list or the Maui
Library Association; New books are
added month by month, as the lists
come in from various members.
NEW ARMOR-PLATE METAL
The launching of the new French
battleship Paris at the end of Septem
ber is exciting considerable interest
in engineering and shipbuilding
The armor platng on the new ves
sel is made entirely of a new metal
of French invention, which will, it is
expected, render a battleship less vul
nerable to shell fire, and mark a new
epoch in naval shipbuilding.
The new metal is made in the work
shops of the Compagnie de Forges et
Acieries de la Marine at Saint-Cham-ond,
and contains ' a good proportion
of chromium and nickel, giving great
elasticity and, at the same time, hard
ness at least equal to that of cement
The plates made for the battleship
Paris have came successfully through
the firing tests, and great satisfac
tion is felt that, in the world-wide re
searches for an improved armor pjate,
necessitated by more powerful naval
artillery. French engineers have
scored the first triumph. New York
The enlisted men of the Depart
ment of Hawaii are up in arms over
the uniform which they are contin
ually forced to wear. Nothing but
the khaki service untform Is author
ized for Hawaii, which means that
the men here must be in breeches
and tight, hot leggins during all their
waking hours. They want the privi
lege of buying a white uniform to
wear off duty, out of their own pock
ets, and many officers of the depart
ment back them up in their request.
A correspondent who signs himself
"Blanco" puts the case fairly and
squarely in the Army and Navy Jour-
jnal. The tip is out that "Blanco" 4s
a well-known non-commissioned offi
cer at Schofield Barracks, who is
known to be working for better uni
form conditions for the soldiers.
This matter has been in the air for
several months, and some time ago
Lieutenant Colonel Campbell, adju
tant general of the department, told a
Star-Bulletin reporter that he believ
ed a white uniform, authorized to be
worn by enlisted men when off duty,
would prove popular with them, and
that many would bc willing to stand
the expense of purchase and laundry
work for the privilege of appearing
neat and clean when they were on
pass. Most of the officers here agree
with the adjutant general.
Here is Blanco's side of the story:
To the Editor of the Army and Navy
Journal: . '
War, Department orders prescribe
that the uniform (cotton olive drab
or khaki) shall be worn at all times
by all troops stationed in the Hawai
ian or Philippine Islands, except on
such occasions as the white uniform
is authorized for officers. Prion to
issue of orders on this subject en
listed men off duty were permitted to
wear a white cQtton suit, which gave
the legs a much needed rest from the
pressure of the heat producing and
uncomfortable leggings. . This is no
longer permissible, and the enlisted
force in the tropics swelter in canvas
leggings from reveille until taps. In
view of the fact that a white .uniform
with long trousers is authorized for
officers not on duty under arms, in
the afternoon, etc., there seems to be
no sound reason why a similar con
cession might not be made to; the
health, comfort and appearance of en
listed men, and' without any expense
to the government The War Depart
ment could, very well issue: an order
permitting, but not Necessarily, re
quiring, enlisted men when not on
duty" under arms to wear a . white
cotton uniform and helmet or cap, of
prescribed design, to be purchased by
the . individual soldier as v his own
property.; --...v." " ." ;;
Those ot us, and thejr- are In the
majority,' who take a pride in our
uniforms desire to present - at nil
times a neat appearance . The khaki
or olive drab cotton uniform, no mat
ter how well made, never gives " the
'.'dress" appearance and feeling; It is
essentially a working or field uni
form. The War Department might
well consider the practicability - of
adopting a white uniform for dress
wear in the tropics, and until they
do adopt such a uniform could very
well permit the wearing of one by
troops off duty, in the afternoon, etc.
A white uniform in the tropics ts
quite as necessary for enlisted men
as for officers.
