Is Asked For Advice
A well known small farmer of Maul
has written the following letter to the
Haiku, Maul, Feb. 10, 1918.
Mr. J. F. Child,
Dear Mr. Child:
We are having difficulty In getting
substitute flour. Can you help us out?
We can secure white wheat flour,
Graham flour and cornmeal. It is
desirable ,as I understand It, not to
use any more than absolutely neces
sary of the two former, while the
maintenance of health prevents us
from using very much of the last. In
our family if we try to use cornmeal
straight, we break out with hives. I
have heard of barley flour, banana
and sweet potato flours and cassava
flour but none of these can we buy.
I take it up with the store, but can
get no satisfaction. Although I have
never seen it, I should think that
barley flour would make the nearest
substitute to wheat flour, as the two
grains analyse very nearly the same.
Why can't we get this?
I recently read in the paper that
there was quite a large patch of cas
sava on windward Oaliu for sale, and
the federal experiment station was
urging that it be bought and made in
to flour. Was anything done about
this? Will we be able to get some of
that cassava as flour? It would be
possible, would it not, with machinery
now on Oahu to make this flour? The
sugar mills and at least one feed
company have driers.
The great need for saving wheat is
right now, and up to the harvesting
of the next crop in July, is it not?
We have not tasted white bread in
our home for many a long day. We
make the bread now of 9 parts Gra
ham, 1 cornmeal, 1 rice and 4 parts
white wheat flour (by measure). We
use this all the time rather than ob
serving wheatless days and using
vhlte bread on other days, because,
as I said above, when we tried the
wheatless day with the substitutes
available, the results were unhappy.
Put we are not satisfied. We use too
much wheat, we want to get away
from it, and being unable to get the
substitutes locally we now appeal to
We do not want our substitute flour
in 5 lb. tins at 65 cents a tin. That
may be alright for people in the sugar
business but it Is not for homestead
ers in the chicken business. The
substitute flour must not cost more
than wheat, and ought to cost less,
considering the value of the grains.
Very truly yours,

P. S. We tried an experiment with
sugar which it might be well for oth
ers to try. When we read that it was
desired that we use not over 3 lbs.
per person per month we felt that we
were already on the safe side, but
measured out 5 lbs. and used that
for all purposes to see how long it
would last It was gone in just a
week, we found ourselves using at
the rate of 20 lbs. a month. There be
ing but 5 of us this was 5 lbs. a month
more than we should use. So, of
course we began to cut, and shall
check ourselves by noting how long
the 5 lbs. last from time to time.

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.
Every Certificate is also 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
