theme considered Sunday at the

minister reviewed the valuation of a
man In the days of the prophet
Isaiah when he foretold the coming
of the Messiah. Jesus lived out
those qualities and, as the risefi
Christ, has emphasized them for the
America the past few months has
been searching for men with strength
of body and skill of hand, with strong
heart and spirit to meet the great
crisis of the world. By many thou
sands they stand forth today in all
the walks of life and In co-operation

On Sunday morning, last. Rev. J
Charles Villiers, preached at the
Church of the Good Shepherd on
"Sincerity". He introduced his ser
mon by saying that some time ago, in
the course of an afternoons pastoral
visitation, he called at a home where
a few ladies were met who were dis
cussing the question as to whether
one could always be sincere ana not
at times, do more harm than good.
The opinion seemed to prevail among
these ladies that it was some times
wise to bo "just diplomatic", even if
tt were at the cost of sincerity, be
cause by tact and diplomacy one could
promote peace and good feeling when
one would by sincerity sow discord
and get into "hot-water".
When the preacher questioned the
company as to the meaning or smcer
ity, it was found that there were dif
ferences of opinion as to the meaning
of the word. But it was agreed that
to bo sincere one must be truthful.
There is and can be no sincerity in
unworthy subterfuges. But while
sincerity requires that the truth be
spoken, it doss not always require
that all the truth be spoken. There
may be more sincerity at times in
silence than there would be in speech.
The man who on all occasions "speaks
out his mind," and who seems to have
a pestiferous way of blurting out the
most painful and unpleasant things
about his neighbor, and, in aotng so,
on occasion, boastfully declares that
he is prepared to stand by every word
he says, may think himself sincere,
but Is. probably, under misapprehen
sion. Speech that is not born of
friendliness and love, will rarely be
found, in the last analysis, to be,
genuinely, sincere. Sincerity has for
its end and object things constructive
rather than things destructive.
This is not to say that there are
not times when sincerity calls for
vehement. ' passionate expression.
There is a righteous indignation that
is absolutely essential to sincerity
We have a fine example of it in the
strong language of Jesus when he
drew a full length portraiit of the
Scribes and Pharisees, in which lie
emphasized their double-dealing, nnd
hypocrisy. But St. Matthew, whose
Gospel gives us the record of Jesus'
words, leaves us not in the dark as
to the spirit in which h'fl words were
spoken. They were not spoken in
bitter harshness, but in love, and with
a sob in the speaker's voice.
Of the two suggested origins of the
word "Sincere" the preacher said he
preferred the one which, freelv rend
ered, meant, "one, together or apart."
for that is the Ideal of sincerity. It
can have nothing to do with double-
dealing. It has no love for the things
which tend to cleavage nnd disunion
among friends. It does not live in an
atmosphere of malice and ill-will. It
hativs hypocrisy and evil speaking.
It is not cruel, even when necessity
requires it to be vehement and pas
sionate in speech. When it cannot
be silent. It does not rejoice when a
friend or neighbor has been over
taken in the meshes of wrong doing.
Yes, we may always be sincere, nnd
if we always were sincere, how much
greater would be the sum total of
Castle Talks On Subject
(Continued from Page One.)
called to my attention was a notice
on the Matson boat "We are serv
ing smaller portions; If you wish a
second helpijig you may have it by
asking for it." While on trains
from the middle West to the East,
nearly all the dining cars had a small
card displayed conta'ning some very
distinct facts as to what can be done
in the saving of food, nnd as I went
further East I found still more evi
dence of the U. S. Government sav
ing the food supply. I did not see
much evidence in the hotels and
restaurants of food conservation, with
the exception that on the menus they
were featuring the corn and graham
"There was not the publicity in the
West given to food conservation that
there was in the East."
Mr. Barter also told of his work at
the Haiku Fruit & Packing Co., and
had on exhibition several varieties of
Maui grown beans when were canned
at the Haiku factor'- Mr. Barter said
that any persons wishing to bring
their own surplus beans to the Haiku
F. & P. Co., on Wednesday or Thurs
day, of each week, with the tips and
strings removed and the beans broken
the Company would furnish the salt
and put the beans in the cans for six
ty cents per. dozen.
The chairman then introduced Mr.
A. L. Castle, chairman of the Terri
torial Food Conservation Commis
sion. Mr. Castle said in part:
"The problem in this conservation
of food saving in the homes is large
ly one of education and up to date
we have not had enough educational
work; -or suflicierit publicity. I
believe the showing of slides and the
four-minute talks will be a great help.
We have got to make some sacrifice
during this war. One or two facts
are known to be true Over a million
people have starved to death. We
also know that the British are stead
ily and systematically advancing, but
only with care to themselves.
When there is n question of sacrifice
to save people from starving, there
is not a person in Hawaii who is go
ing to refuse to do it.
"The Germans have been compared
with the Iroquois Indians for deviltry,
and have never been equalled as to
"The Territorial Commission re
commend a wheatless day, also a
meatless day each week, nnd if we
will observe this meatless day each
week, we will find that by March 1st,
or earlier, the Territory of Hawaii
will be entirely self-supporting, as far
as meat is concerned.
"The Federal Commission is work
ing on the regulation and control o
prices and also on conservation, but
there Is a distinct line between the
two commissions. It is true in every
island that there has been a disposi
tion to send to the Coast rather than
look around and get supplies right
here on the soil. The merchants
in Honolulu are now endeavoring to
use the island products and patronize
the home garden, rather than to buy
outs',de, and I think the work of the
county agents in this territory is go
ing to result in decreases of the
food importations between a million
and a million and one-half dollars.
"The value of the food question is,
I think, best illustrated by the Rus
"The Russians in Rumania are good,
and can be depended upon so long as
they can get supplies. The Russians
have mobilized nine million men more
than is necessary. Had they been
left on the farms to produce the wheat
and grain, they would not now be de
pending on outside supplies. The
food question is of the utmost im
portance. If we can save enough in
America bo that we do not need to
draw on Australia for wheat, then the
Australian supply can be diverted to
Roumania and it is going to make a
tremendous difference to the eastern
Dr. W. D. Baldwin was asked by
the chairman to give his opinion of
the cassava flour for use in the mak
ing of bread and as a substitute for
wheat. Dr. Baldwin said: "The
cassava root is very easily grown and
there is no known disease of it here
in the Islauds and it withstands al
most any amount of drought. The
bread made with the cassava flour
can hardly be distinguished from the
wheat bread and as regards the nutri
tive value, it would have the practical
value of ordinary bread with, per
haps, not quite as much protein. The
cassava does not need to be harvest
ed at any particular time the yield
is very heavy and with all theso ad
vantages U is an extremely valuable
plant. The best time to plant the
cassava is in the early spring it
does not grow well in cold weather."
