Discussion On Practical Points
The Campaign Being Carri
ed Out Here
THE BASIS OF TRIE CONSERVATION
Mrs. A. C. Bowdish, chairman of the
Food Conservation Committee for the
County of Maui, called a meeting of
the Executive Committee on Wednes
day at the Alexander House Settle
ment. To this meeting were invited
several of the men of Maui, who are
Interested In Conservat'on. The
session was spent largely in the dis
cussion of the questions Involved. It
was definitely decided not to hold the
drive for pledges in the mailer of
conservation this coming week, nor
In the Immediate future, as headquart
ers iii Honolulu had suggested, but
that first a very thorough campaign
In the matter of educating people as
to the exact meaning of the conser
vation of food be undertaken. The
facts were brought out that, the lower
price of wlv'te flour had played an
important part In the use of the white
flour over other kinds, but that in
some Instances a large amount of
meat had been saved, and that a more
general use of the Islands grown wash
ed sugar had resulted In the cam
paigns so far.
While some of these fact were en
couraging, the committee felt that
some means must be used to educate

A Japanese Runs
Over Korean Boy
Automobile 802, owned and driven
by one Arakawa, hit a small Korean
boy at Camp 1 early Saturday night,
Inflicting painful injuries. The
driver stopped, picked the boy up and
took him to Puunene hospital where
he received prompt attention.
It is charged that Arakawa had no
lights whatever on his machine at
the time of the accident.
The policeman at the camp reported
the matter to the department and
Officer P. J. Goodness brought in the
Japanese. In Wailuku district court
Monday morning he pleaded guilty to
the charge of violating County 'Ordi
nance No. 31 and was sentenced to
pay a fine of $25. The Ordinance re
ferred to requires that in event of
anyone being struck by a car the
chaffeur shall report the facts at once
to the police department.

RED CROSS DRIVE
Mrs. Caleb Burns and Mrs. Frank
Hoogs are in charge of arrangements
for a Red Cross stomp drive in Wai
luku on December 17th. It appears
that Wailuku did not "warm up" very
' well to the previous drive and will
now be given a chance to make good.
Postoffice At Paia
Entered Sunday Night
The postofTice at Pa',a was broken
Into sometime Sunday night by a per
son unknown, and the fact that noth
ing was stolen added additional
mystery to the occurrence.
The potsoffice is in the depot, shed,
the act'ng postmaster being James
Gumming, station agent, who lives in
a cottage near by. About 1 o'clock
Monday morning Mr. dimming heard
his dog barking, but d;d not think of
the postolllce and really paid little
attention to the dog.
The intruder, whoever he was,
broke a glass in the small window at
the front of the office, turned the
fasten'ng at the top, raised the sash
and entered. He threw things around
some in the office, but absolutely
nothing was missed when an examin
ation was made Monday morning.
Sheriff Crowell went to the scene
and thoroughly investigated the cir
cumstances. He detained a simple
minded fellow living near on suspi
cion, . but that man accounted for
himself on Sunday n!ght in a fairly
satisfactory way. tl is doubtful that
any arrest will ever be made for the
reason that there are no clues for the
police to workon.
An Unusual Case
Of Gross Cheat
A Filipino giving the name of Man
uel Miliona, from the Waikapu section
of Wailuku plantation, pleaded guilty
ill the Wailuku district court Mon
day to a charge of gross cheat and
was sentenced to imprisonment for
It appears that the man took the
bonus check of a friend with whom
he was living, amounting to $114, to
the store of S. Nakatani, in the Maa-
laea neighborhood, stating that his
friend had sent him to borrow $6 on
it. The money was handed over.
Later, the friend missed the check,
went to the store and found out what
had been done. The arrest followed.
The police were of the opinion that
the name "Miliona" sounded like big
money, but doubted its efficiency in
a "get-r'.ch-quick" scheme such as the
Dance At Puunene
The dance given by the finance
committee of the Maui Women's
Food Conservation Commission at the
Puunene Club House Saturday even-
tag was a delightful affair in every
respect and was a financial success,

a numner of tickets in advance, and
the door-keepers were kept busy din

The attendance at the race meet on
Kahulul track last Saturday after
noon was surprising small so small,
,n fact, that actual expenses were
not paid. To meet the expense of
purses, rent of track, etc., Mr. Mc
Phee gave up the purse of $150 won
by his own horse and he and Mr. F.
B. Cameron made up the balance of
$48.35 from their own pockets.
The purpose of the meet was to
iry ana Keep tne sport alive. It was
not the idea of the promoters, Messrs.
MacPhee and Cameron, to make any
money out of it. In fact, they hail
volunteered to give any piv.fii' that
might he made to the Red Cross.

closely contested. The sport was ex

In H. C. & S. Camp
Tuesday night about 10:30 a Portu
guese family living at Camp Five dis
covered that the house occupied by
themselves was afire on the roof and
gave the alarm.
A Filipino named Malciano Plot
and h's friend, living in the adjoining
cottage, responded to the cry for as
sistance, climbed upon the burning
house and put the- fire out.
Investigation showed that oil had
been poured over some shirts and old
rags, these thrown on top of the
Portuguese house and set on fire. It
was evidently an attempt to burn the
building. The plantation police offi
cer at the camp notified the sheriff
and the Filipino who put the fire out
was arrested on suspicion.

Major Green Comes
To Register Koreans
The principal business of Major
Francis J. Green on Maui during Ills
recent visit had to do with the regis
tration of Korean children born in the
Islands, this be'ng a sort of "side

difficulty in carrying out the new
regulations concerning the selective
draft on account of the fact of regis
trants being widely scattered. Legal
and medical advice are both called
for to a greater extent than formerly,

be gathered from the highways and

Green feels that much hard work is
still ahead of the boards in the rural

on Maul was considerably in the na
ture of a much-needed rest. He left
feeling quite rested.

CAPITAL CITY NEWS
Honolulu Food Administrator Hoover sends a long wireless ap

says that attempts being made to discourage the idea are either malicious
or emanate from persons interested in increasing costs of food. Through
saving the United States is now able, for the first time, to secure meats
for export to the Allies, while the exports of wheat from now on will
be only what the people can save. None other will be available. He
says that oposition to conservation is treasonable, as it means direct
and immediate loss of life among our Allies, among American troops
abroad, and serious interference with our war services.
