A meeting of the general committee
on children's gardens was held at the
residence of Director L. R. Mathews,
In Wailuku, Monday afternoon, those
present being: D. H. Case, chair
man; Will. J. Cooper, L. R. Mathews,
Dr. Wm. D. Baldwin, A. C. Bowdish,
W. S. Beeman, James Lindsay, H. M.
Wells and R. C. Bowman.
Mr. Mathews submitted the report
of the judges on the garden contest
The chair stated the object of the
meeting to be to discuss the Question
of whether or not there should be an
other contest. Several suggestions
were offered as to changes in the plan
of the contest and discussion theron
was tacitly allowed. Finally, the
main question was put and it was
unanimously voted to recommend an
other contest to the Maul County
Fair And Racing Association.
Dr. Baldwin suggested that a con
test for adults be carried on at the
same time, the prizes to be in cash.

The manager and staff of the Wai
luku Sugar So., have issued invita
tions to the annual ball to be given
at the mill on the evening of Decem
up with her labor memberships until
last niRht, which boosted that dis
trict to the top. Another tenure of
the day was the passing of Wailuku
by Lahainn, the former, wh'ch had
held first place for two days, passing
to third on the list. Paia, also, made
a big jump ajid is now closely crowd
ing Wailuku for thrid place. Gains
were also made In the smaller dis
tricts. The news last night that Oahu and
Hawaii together had a total of less
than 17,000 made Maui's total of
7,776 look good to the workers, and
the latter started out this morning
with a new determination to make
the total 11,000, and surely not to
stop below 10,000. The Boy Scouts
will be out tomorrow and it is figured
that they will help a great do.nl.
A feaure of the campaign has been
the splendid co-operation of the Jap
anese. When the commander of the
Tokiwa was here he called attention
to the forthcoming Red Cross drive
and Intimated to the Japanese of
Maul that they should support it to
the fullest convenient extent. How
much effect this advice had can, of
course, be only conjectured; but cer
tainly there is a wonderful interest
among the Japanese in the cause.
The Japanese papers of Wailuku have,
also, helped a very great deal in bring
ing about the splendid results that
are now being realized.

Bird's Carol Program
Very Great Success
Delightful Entertainment Good Sum
Realized For Belgian Chil
The Bird's Christmas Carol, which
was interpreted by local, amateur tal
ent in the Orpheum, Wailuku, Satur
day afternoon, for the benefit of
Belgian children, drew a full house
and was much enjoyed by all present.
The entertainment was the result of
much study and work, and all of the
participants deserve credit for unusu
al perseverence a very large share
rightly belonging to Mrs. T. B. Linton,
the director, who also took the dim-
cult part of Mrs. Ruggles in the play.
Where all did so well, it is difficult
to single out any particular ones for
praise. It may be remarked, however,
that the experienced "stagers" in the
list were up to a high mark. Of the
inexperienced "thespianas , Miss
Althea Case, as Carol Bird, meritted
a great deal of praise. Helen How
ell, as "Clement" and "Billy" White
head, as "Larry", were, also, quite
pleasing; but the same may be said
of all the Ruggles family.
A very good sum was realized, out
of which small expenses will have to
come. The residue will be forwarded
to Mrs. Emerson, to be added to the
fund for a day nursery in Belgium, to
be contributed by this Territory.
The complete list of participants in
the entertainment is as follows:

a success beyond all expectations.

a happy crowd. Except for a few
minutes of serious speech-making, ocJ
during the singing, the merriment
was unconfined. The noise and joy
was not all among the youngsters,
either, for the mama and papa children
entered Into the spirit of the occasion
to the fullest.
The original intention had been to
have the exercises on the court-house
grounds, but the proviso was fortu
nately made if the weather should
happen not to be just right, the or
mory would be used instead, As it
tvrned out, showers of the earlier
evening had left the court house
,,rounds in a damp condition, and,
moreover, ram constantly threatened;
so the armory, near by, was used.
The tree was toward one corner
of the drill hall, and the presents
were on it, beneath it and around it.
There was something for every kid
dle and a whole lot besides. Every
thing was brilliantly illuminated, and

draw troops from the Russian front to oppose Kaledines, now sweeping
southern Russia with Cossacks. General Orenburg is at the head of a
large Cossack force and is opposing the Bolshcviki. He has occupied
