MAUI ROLLS UP 11,458
IN REDCR0SS DRIVE
This County Leads All Others By A Big Majority
In The December Campaign For New Members
$15,551 For National Organization And Sev
eral Hundred For Local Auxiliary
In the Red Cross drive, Maui start
ed out to get 6,000 new members, but,
as the result of the hard work of the
central committee and the district
helpers, and the enthusiasm created
all along the line, nearly double that
number, or 11,458, new names were
added to the roll for Maui county,
comprising the islands of Maui, Molo
kai and Lanai.
The results by districts are given
at the foot of this page.
It will be noted from the table that
the sum of $15,500 were realized,
which means an average of about 50
cents for every man, woman and child
on the three islands based upon the
last census. This, it is believed, will
compare favorably with any other
community of like population in the
Kauai appears to have come next
to Maui, with 3,000. Oahu had only
1754, while, after getting 888 names,
Hawaii stopped and continued its
drive to January 13. Adding all these
totals to the number received in the
Oahu drive in August and September,
the grand total appears, at this writ
ing, to be something like 33,405, or
practically 8,000 more than had been
The campaign on Maui closed at 12
o'clock noon on Monday. This gave a
half day less running time than on

the failure of supplies to arrive on
schedule, Maui started a day late.

There was a good deal of friendly
rivalry between Puunene, Wailuku
and Lahaina, first one, then the other
looking like a "sure winner." The
last day's returns, however, ' threw
the "championship" to Puunene.
One of the big surprises was in the
showing of Hana, a district with a
comparatively small population. The
lenders in the campaign agree that
1007 members for Hana was doing re
markably well. Of course, at the
same time, it must be remembered
that the districts of Kula, Kahului
and Molokai could not possibly reach
anything like the figures of the plant
ation centers of Puunene, Wailuku,
Lahaina and Paia (or even Hana.)
When their small population is con
sidered it will doubtless be found that
they ran neck and neck with the
In respect to Wailuku district,
Manager Rice makes the statement
that the county seat ran ahead of La
haina in the number of memberships
turned in. It appears, however, that
a large number "signed up" in Wai
luku were from other towns of the
island, quite a few being from Laha
ina. The committee, in going over
the lists, took all of these out and
creditted them to their proper dis
tricts. Thus, Wailuku lost heavily in
the final analysis and the other dis
tricts gained, Lahaina among the
numbers. As a matter of fact, Wailu
ku's total tagged was 60 ahead of La
haina, the exact figures being 2147
