attended to by the local Board.
According to Section 7 of the new
regulations, Paragraph 5:
"If the Sheriff of the County Is
a member of the local Board there
in, he shall act as chairman and
executive officer of such local
Board .... If one mem
ber of the Board is a licensed
physician he shall act as examin
ing physician of the local Board
and a member shall be chosen by

You will see from the above that
you are legally the chairman of the
Board and I am sure that you in this
capacity will give as efficient and
heart-whole service as you have done
as executive officer of the Board of
Registration of your County.
The regulations also call upon the
local Boards immediately upon their
organization, to take over the records
and registration cards of the Registra
tion Board of that County. Of course,
your members being continued from
one Board to another with merely a
change of title, there will be no diffi
culty in this work. You will continue
to exercise under the new title all
authority and duty which you have
hitherto filled so well, In addition to

I have not received from Washing
ton any of the forms or regulations
covering the new work, but I am In
receipt of a cable stating that they
were shipped on the 11th of the month
and therefore they should be here on
the next steamer. I will send a suf
ficient number over to your Board as
soon as they arrive.
I would suggest that as soon as you
receive copies of these regulations
that you meet Informally and discuss
the various points, at the same time
mak'ng notes of questions which may
arise in your mind, and have these
questions in such shape that they may
be placed before me on my arrival in
Maui. According to present plans I
ant'cipate visiting Hawaii and Maui
about the first of the month in order
that I may personally take up with the
various Boards on these Islands such
questions as may arise. I will notify
you by wireless of course, as to the
date of arrival and will have my
private secretary with me.
There will be no necessity in mak
ing any change in wireless charges
because of the new Board as the Naval
Radio has full instructions as to what
account to charge up the various mes
sages. You will please continue to keep
me fully a&ised as to the actions of
your Board and if you do not receive
prompt reply put it down to stress of
work in this office.
With many congratulations upon
your work in the Registration Board,
FRANCIS J. GREEN,
Chairman of the District Board.
Mail To The
The department of state has arrang

correspondence between persons in
this country and relations or friends
in Germany, Austria, Turkey or Bul
garia, and W. R. Castle, Jr., of Hono

work. Persons on Maui, for instance,
wishing to communicate with parties

the Bureau of Communications, Am

From there proper Inquiries will go via
Geneva, Switzerland, to the persons
addressed and answers returned in
the same way. The following gener
al rules are to be observed:
1. Letters of inquiry must be ad
dressed to the bureau of communica
tion; not to the person concerning
whom inquiry is made.
2. Letters must be concise, since
only the briefest communication can
3. They must mention only person
al matters, such as communications
concerning the condition of members
of the family and requests for simi
4. Letters must be legible and
must be in English, French, Italian,
Russian, German, Polish, Hungarian,
Turkish or Greek.
5. They must include the full name,
address and occupation of the sender,
and the full name, address, occupation
and age of the person for whom the
inquiry is destined.
6. Inquiries concerning the same
person may not be made oftener than
once in six weeks.
The bureau of communication re

Mr. Villiers Sermon
On Timely Subject.
In concluding a series of sermons,
last Sunday morning, at the church
of the Good Shepherd, on "Religion,
in its application to human life," Rev.
J. Charles Villiers said: we sometimes
hear it said that the world needs a
new relieion. That is not true. What
the world really needs is greater and
more universal fidelity to religion as
it is taught by Jersus Chirst. In
every community men and women nre
to be found who while not, perhaps,
actually hostile to the organized forces
of religion, yet are negligent of the one
institution which represents these
forces-the church. These same people
are often most ready to criticize the
church for a lack of efficiency and
effectiveness in service. Such critic
ism is begun at the wrong end. It
is uttered in forgetfulness of the
teachings of Jesus on personal re
sponsibility. To make the church
more efficient and effective in the life
of the community is the first duty of
these cril ies, and not to be ever-ready,
and over-ready with their criticisms
of the church's failures. When the
critic outside of the church, and the
critic inside, rises to a living, vtal
recognition of his whole duty to God,
and to the church, then we shall be
in a fair way of finding a solution not
only to the great moral problems,
but, also, to the great political, social,
and economic problems with which
the world, at this hour, stands face to
face. The church, on its human side,
is not a perfect institution, but it is
the best institution the world has for
the promotion of religion and morali
ty. There are not wanting signs that
when the war is over, the political,
social, and economic problems of the
world will be as great as or even
greater than they were before the
war. We are facing questions which
go to the very roots of society. The
indications are the future, and, per
haps, the very near future, has in store
for the world great political, social,
and econonvc changes. If these
changes are to be for the good of
each and all or not, will depend on
many factors, none of which is more
important, or as important, as religion
as it is taught by Jesus ChriM.
