THE MAUI NEWS, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 8, 1918.
He is in trouble, this real American
who has dug down deep Into his own
pocket to carry on throuRh the pub
lic prints, the fights for what he con
siders right and just and proper. His
case Is before the court so we can
not discuss It freely, but the man
himself is not before the court. The
court of public opinion long ago put
Richard H. Trent in his own nitch
In these Islands. We know him for
what he Is and has done. Not al
ways agreeing with him, seeing things
maybe from time to time in a differ
ent light, maybe worshipping our
God in a different pew, the most of
us who know him, have felt always
mm iiere was a man we could tie to.
His big wide smile, his pleasant eyes
that twinkle, earnest too, his cheery
voice, are but part of the Individual
we have known and liked. Some oi
the things that Dixie Doolittle has
been aiming at may seem to others,
more or less immaterial in these days
of stress, but not a soul of us who
calls himself American or British or
rencn, Dut can Join hands with him
in his effort to smoke out the pro
German in his community, the capital
of this Territory. It is a pity, far
iuu greai a pny mat sucn work as
Dixie Dnnlittlf? hnn hoon rinino- waa
found to be necessary, before Hono
lulu ana ine resi oi me Territory
could be aroused to the sense of Its
own danger from the Huns loose

Would that we had Dixie Doolittle
in Hilo. We need him here as badly
as thev dirt in Hnnnlnlii Tt mnv hp
that in his zeal for temperance Mr.
Trent has gone too far and said
things that he should have left un
said. That is a matter for the courts
to decide. If he has it is to be re
gretted, but and here is the crux of
the whole matter1 he has said things
that should have been said at a time
whon far too many so-called Amer
icans were sneaking out of the duty
war and their country had laid on
their shoulders. Men, there are with
a yellow streak in them who feared
to "lose business" if they spoke out
in meeting regarding the actions of
the Huns in this community. They
are wearers of pants, but entitled to
none of the other perogatives of man
hood. Hurrah then, for Dixie Doolittle and
may his example breed others exactly
like him. Daily Post-Herald (Hilo.)

An Experiment to Encourage the
ureaier consumption of Locally
During the past week one of our
enterprising Central Maui merchants
inaugurated a "Fresh Vegetable Dav"
which is to be fentnrprt wod-lv n
object is two-fold, 1. to encourage the
use of more home grown produce in
ine iorm or fresh vpfmtnhlnc.
against ine lmDortert rnnnpri nrnrtnnf
still extensively URed hv fhnnn tint In
a position to grow their own vege
tables, and 2. to encourage truck
farming on Maui to the extent at
least of self-planting In whole or part
both fresh and canned vegetables
nunerto imported from the Coast.
The Agricultural Extension Sub
Station at Haiku was asked to co
operate and resnnnripri tn iho ovtonf
of supplying Lima beans, in two
varieties; string Beans, one variety;
sweet corn; green onions; sweet
potatoes: mangoes and nlnpnnnloq
If the inital experiment warrants an
extension or the enterprise the Sub
Station will plan a systematic cam
paign among the homesteaders to
grow specialized crops for our local
markets. In cooperation with the
Haiku Fruit & Packing Company,
both string beans and lima beans have
ben grown during the past season.
Contracts have also been entered in
to to produce select strains of seed
stocks for the use of planters grow
ing beans for the cannery. This
project is to be extended to include
the growing of other vegetable seeds
so that local gardeners may soon be
able to purchase acclimated and sup
erior garden seeds, Maul grown. This
is an intensive type of farming which
the Agricultural Extension Division
of the Hawaiian Experiment Station
has advocated for years. F. G. K.
To Limit The Profits
Made On Corn Meal
The following announcement ap
peared in a city paper on Saturday:
A tentative agreement reached to
day between A. W. Carter of the Par
ker ranch and James D. Dole, chair
man of the territorial food commis
sion, provides that wholesalers shall
make a profit of 5 per. cent, and re
tailer's a profit of from 15 to 20 per.
cent on sales of corn meal manufac
tured in Hawaii from island-grown
The Parker ranch has installed mill
ing machinery and is planting 4000
acres to corn The first of the product
probably will reach Honolulu next
week. Mr. Carter said today that the
ranch will put the meal on the mar
ket in bags.
Under the tentative agreement the
corn meal will be sold to the public
at 6 cents a pound for 50 pound bags,
and at 7 cents a pound for 5 pound
bags, the latter being the prevailing
price. This will mean prices much
cheaperthan those charged for import
ed corn meal. The food commission
will meet next week to consider the
tentative agreement. Mr. Dole says
the commission may fix the maxi
mum price per. pound at which the
meal shall be sold at retail.
Maui Meat Is Said
To Be Very Cheap
The Honolulu Star-Bulletin of Tues
day afternoon said:
Meat on Maul is now retailing at
the price now chareed whnlooalo In
Honolulu. This statement was given
out by the food commission today
after discussing meat And nthpr fnnri
prices with Harold W. Rice, well-
Known Maui businessman.
Rice crave an encournpin? retinrt nn
the Drosnects of a ennd meat attnnlv
on the Valley Isle. His statement
brought up the question why with
systematized distribution all parts of
ine islands cannot get meat at ap
proximately the same price. i
E TO WIN
THE SOLDIERS AND ALLIES NEED
enough food to keep in
very important that the children, especially,
have plenty of food.
Do Not Waste Food. Do not throw away
food, whether at home or in the fields, that can
be eaten later.
Save The Fats. Do not waste lard or but
ter. The soldiers need the fats for food, and
more fats are needed for making powder.
Save The Sugar. Do not waste sugar.
Try honey in place of some of the sugar.

The Government of the United States of America, hav
ing found its war finances and citizen interest require the
loyal assistance of the people of moderate means, or no means
except their daily income, has devised a unique financial
scheme, whereby both subscribers and the Government may
benefit and the day of settlement and payment be deferred for
five years, or in the year 1923, a date undoubtedly beyond the
end of the war.
By means of thrift stamps of the denomination of twenty
five cents, an accumulation can be made so that within the
year 1918, a minimum War Saving Certificate of a $5.00 de
nomination, may be secured. The Certificate may be increas
ed, if desired, to one Thousand Dollars.
No more effective way of saving and acquiring the habit
of saving has ever been placed before a people.
u Certificate is aIso a certificate of partnership with
the United States of America in carrying on this War for
I recommend and urge the Citizens to promptly begin
this campaign of Savings and partnership.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have here
unto set my hand and caused the Great Seal
of the Territory of Hawaii to be affixed.
DONE at the capital in Honolulu this 4th -day
of February, A. D. 1918.

Save The Wheat Flour. Eat much less
wheat flour. The Allies are in great need of
flour, Use only half as much flour as you did
before the war. Make "Liberty Bread",
using rice, oats, cornmeal, or Maui beans, in
place of part of the flour. Use Cornmeal In
Place Of Wheat
Raise your own vegetables, if possible, and use
less canned goods. Eat more foods grown on
Maui, such as cornmeal and Maui beans.
