Aala Park practically has been ac
cepted as the site, though there is
still some doubt whether it Is large
enough to accommodate all features
of the big celebration, which seems
to grow day by day in Its promise of
pretentiousness. Other sites have
been, suggested, such as the Ka

Oahu campus and Kapiolani Park,
but all encounter the same objec

the heart of the city. The commis
sioners believe that if necessary, ad

is a bit of land near the Oahu railway
station and another is the old Athle
tic Park, where until the last year,
nearly all Honolulu's baseball games

however .that Aala will be amply
large for all the structures and con

present time the Juice has been un
usually poor for this plantation. This,
coupled with a shortage in the cane
. mid, due to the poor start this crop
had, and the continued unfavorable
conditions which prevailed during
the entire period of its growth, will
greatly reduce the output. The esti
mate is 10,500 tons of BUgar.
The reduced yield of this crop is
due in general to the following
Late start owing to the results of
the 1916 storm: lack of growth dur
ing the first winter, owing to - the
backward condition of the cane:
shortage of water during the drought
of 1917 and poor quality of juice

Goats Figure In Food
Problem In Arizona
The Food Administration authorizes
Goats are fleurlnz in the food tiro-
blem out In Arizona. Proprietors of
barbecue stands have appealed to the
Food Administration for permission
to hand goat meat across the counter
on "meatless days." They say that
to close up their places of business
every Tuesday works a very real
hardship upon them and upon lovers
of barbecued meat. If they could
substitute goat meat for beef, mutton,

about the numerous "chill" and "ham

American evolutions of the Mexican

its beef content is banished from
Tuesday menus and because of its
wheat content is frowned upon on
Monday and Wednesday.
