Smoked Shark As
A War-Saving Ration
Maui enthusiasts on ' shark fishing
will doubtless be interested in the
following, recently given out officially
"Smoked shark meat as a war ra
tion will soon make its appearance
' on the market, according to informa
tion of the Department of Commerce.
For some time past tho department
has endeavored, through demonstra
tion work, to create a substantial
market for the flesh of the "tiger of
the seas." Representatives of the
Bureau of Fisheries went to Florida
to demonstrate methods of smoking
the fish. A Mayport, Fla., fisherman
has taken up the smoking of shark
meat and is prepared to fill orders.
Other firms along the Atlantic coast
are also preparing to put shark meat

What Alien Property
May Be Taken Over
The following statement, just issu
ed by the alien properly custodian at
Washington, covers a question which
has been frequently discussed here
The proclamation by the rresident,
including under the term "enemy" in
the trading-with-the-enemy act all
alien enemies who have been per
manently interned under the Jurisdic
tion of the War Department, is bas
ed upon the powers given to him un
der section 2 of the trading-with-the-enemy
Its object and purpose is to enable
the alien property custodian to take
over and manage the property of ali
en enemies of large means who have
been permanently interned, and to
eliminate any possibility of their
carrying on, from the Internment
camps, trading-activities which might
he inimical to the interests of the
It must be noted, however, that the
proclamation is limited to a small class
of alien enemies and does not include
in its scope an alien enemy under ar
rest in a local Jail who has not been
transferred to the War Department,
nor an alien enemy already released
on parole, nor the great body of alien
enemies subject to regulation by the
rresident under the powers conferred
by Revised Statutes 4067.
The Government of the United
States does not intend to interfere
with the property of the ordinary
alien enemy, be he either German or
Austrian, and this proclamation is
strictly limited in its operation to
those who have been found to be
dangerous and who have been trans
ferred to the War Department for

Influence of the weather for the
week ending February 20, on field
crops in the Haiku District.
The Haiku Sub-Station has been
keeping tab on tho weather in co-ope
ration with U. S. Weather Bureau, Ha
waii section, for the past two years
Daily observations are taken of tem
perature, precipitation and wind velo
city. The primary object of this work
is to determine the correlation be
tween the weather and crop produc
tion. Among the causes limiting success
ful culture of any crop are tempera
ture and sunshine, rainfall and physi
ographical features, including soil. It
is only when these several factors are
favorably combined that the culture
of crops are commercially successful.
The limitation of any one, if of suffl
cent degree, will cause failure in
production. Often times two ex
treme conditions will combine to
bring about a failure that might not
have resulted had only one of the
Ground Broken at new demonstra
tion farm in the Haleakala Homestead
During the past week the first five
acres were broken at the Haleakala
Homestead demonstration farm.
Three types of plows were used in
this initial experiment to determine
the most ecomonical and effective
method of a first plowing of this type
of land. A thin grass eod. The
heavy road plow type, drawn by eight
bullocks, worked side by side with a
modern reversable disc plow drawn
by three strong horses on the one
hand, and a newly devised rod-break
ing plow which turns over a beauti
ful furrow of sod, ribbon like, two to
three inches thick, easily drawn by
two medium size horses. This first
demonstration of effective plowing
should prove of great value to the
pioneer homesteaders of this new
track, and much interest is being
evinced by them.
A praiseworthy and rather unusual
proceeding in this work is the fact
that a number of the homesteaders
have volunteered to get under cultt
vation the demonstration farm unit
Already some ten lays of man and
team work has been contributed to
wards the common enterprise. F. G
