EARS THAT II BAR NOT
It is hard to make people believe. Preachers of the gospel have
made this declaration before, but now the federal and territorial author
ities who are handling the food problem are having their turn to be con
vinced of the fact. .Most of us are like the boy who never really doubted
that a buzz-saw is a dangerous contrivance, but he knew that it was
dangerous after it had clipped off his finger.
Everybody knows that there is a food shortage. Everybody under
stands that economy is necessary if this shortage is not to become acute.
And then almost everybody goes right ahead living and eating just as
though these facts did not exist. V e are urged to cut down our con
sumption of bread in order to conserve the wheat 'supply of the nation.
Ve hear and w e understand but some how the thing does not really sink
in, and we go ahead much as before. That somebody, somewhere, is
actually suffering starving for lack of the food that I waste, hasn't
yet really penetrated my inner consciousness.
The postoffice department distributes pledge cards among the
women, the signing of which makes one a member of the national organ
ization pledged to economize in the matter of food used in the homes,
and but a small percentage of the cards are returned. Experts devote
hours of their time and newspapers and magazines columns and pages
ot their space to telling housekeepers how to save. The stuff is listened
to, is read, appreciatively commented upon perhaps, and forgotten.
Perhaps it is too soon to expect a real impression to be made on
American minds by this war. Perhaps we even have failed, as yet, to
really, consciously understand that we are at war. Maybe it must wait
for some dreadful shock, like the dropping of bombs in Eondon, or the
posting of casualty lists bearing the names of our own boys, or the re
turn ot poor, maimed remnants of what once were men, with their tales
of horror, before we shall understand what we have so long been hearing
and which we think we know. The pity of it is that our realization may
come too late for many who need our help NOW not bye-and-bye.
GET THE ALIEN SLACKER
Because of treaties with practically all foreign countries, the Unit
ed States may not legally compel aliens to serve in the army. But there
is no justice in permitting this country to remain an asylum for foreign
slackers. To this end a bill is now in the Congress, which if passed will
require the rounding up of all foreigners subject to military duty in their
c wn countries, and causing them to be deported, unless they voluntarily
choose to enlist in the American ranks.
The bill is eminently just and should be passed. The alien who has
so little loyalty to his own country that he seeks to hide in this hour of
need, is not the kind of man we care to see take the job left vacant by
one of our own boys called to the front.
The Honolulu chamber of commerce has gone on record against
the proposed daylight saving plan, and has cabled the Delegate to
Congress that Hawaii should be left out of any such legislation. The
fact that most of the plantations now set their clocks by the sun must
have convinced the chamber that it is a mischievous habit which should
not be recognized by law.
If the good ladies of Honolulu who are now turning their atten
tion to the making of "comfort bags" for the soldiers would take the
trouble to consult mere man's opinion on the subject they probably

Roosters Crow Joyously
The celebrated Rooster Club of a
year ago was again very much in
evidence under the leadership of
Harry Washburn Baldwin. The mem
bers were in uniform consisting of
white shirts and white duck trousers.
Their evident comfort soon wrought
its effect on the other men at the
gathering and by unanimous consent
coats were dispensed with during the
remainder of the evening. ,
President R. A. Wadsworth, of the
chamber, and a leading Rooster, acted
as toast-master. The principal ad
dresses were made by Raymond C.
Crown, secretary of the Honolulu
Chamber of Commerce, who was pres
ent to boost for the coming civic con
vention, and by Emll A. Berndt, chair
man of the promotion committee, who
with his wife and In company with
Mr. aid Mrs. Worth Aiken had Just
returned from a week's trip through
the crater and around Maui by the
ditch trail. Mr. Berndt dwelt
most interesting upon the scenic won
ders of Maui, which had unquestion
ably made a deep impression upon
him. He urged that the road through
to liana be pushed through as being
one of the greatest needs on Maui to
day from a tourist standpoint.
Others speakers called on for short
addresses, were J. A. M. Johnson, of
Honolulu, W. O. Aiken, D. H. Case
Mrs. Will J. Cooper, E. R. Bevlns, W
F. Crockett, Jr., and Will. J. Cooper.
The Roosters interspersed the vari
ous addresses with some cleverly im
provised songs and yells which kept
things moving at a lively clip and
furnished plenty of fun. Mrs. D. H,
Case was the author of one of the
cleverest of the song hits of the even

that he had made a 6 year contract
with the Raymond Ranch and that
as he could but the meat at 13 cents
he was willing to be satisfied with a
fair profit, and hence had cut prices.
It was later learned that another Wai
luku retailer has also made a contract
to handle the Raymond meat.
It was reported last week that Har
old W. Rice had bought the Maui
Meat Market from A. MacPhee. Mac-
rhee in the past has supplied most of
the retailers in Wailuku, Including
Dutro, and had been buyng from the
Raymond Ranch a certain number of
animals each month. The report Is
that with the acquiring of the busi
ness by Rice, Raymond's market was
shut off because Rice has ample cattle
to supply the trade. Raymond's coup
followed in the contract with the two
retail dealers. It is stated that the
Raymond Ranch has promised to pro
tect the retailers In any attempts that
may be made to under sell them, re
gardless of where such a rate war
II .W. Rice is in Honolulu this week
and could not be seen on the subject.
Whether he will take up the gage
thrown down by Dr. Raymond, is not
known, but It seems evident at all
events, that Wailuku consumers are
to benefit very materially in their
meat bills for a time at least.
