Maui Still Leads V
In Red Cross Totals
Hawaii Reached 10,333 After Weeks
Of Hard Campaigning, To
The lBland of Hawaii did well in Its
long Red Cross drive, extending over
a period of several weeks; but did not
equal the results achieved by Harold
nice and his assistants In the "whirl
wind" campaign of twelve days here.
The total for Hawaii, with the possibi
lity of a few additional names, was
10,338, while Maui's bona fide list of
full memberships in the Red Cross, ob
tained in the December drive here,
was 11,458. The Hawaii Herald, of
Hilo, gives the following account of
the wind-up of the campaign on the
Poor little Miss Sammy, the Hilo
Red Cross Nurse, after standing two
weeks in the rain and wind over the
11,000 mark, will have to step back,
and possibly climb down on 10,338.
"I have finished the official count of
Red Cross members on the Island of
Hawaii," said Mrs. E. H. Moses, sec
retary of the Hilo Chapter, this morn
ing, "and the count stands at 10,338.
While this Is about as much as we
had hoped for at the beginning the
reports that came in led us to think
that we would certainly reach 12,000.
"The over-count was due to some
of the canvassers, many of them In
fact, having reported as members con
tributors who paid Into the fund
amounts under one dollar. Nothing
under a dollar entitles a contributor
to membership, though all the contri
butions were most gladly received
no amount Is too small to be appre
ciated. One mistake of 200 was made
in a report sent in by a canvasser
from one of the country districts, who
made a mistake in the footings.
Others have reported lists, and have
not yet sent in the names and the
amounts. These lists may come later,
but at present the count stands at
Only a few more schools are to be
heard from now on the Red Cross
membership campaign. The little
Kaiwikl School of Hilo, of which Mrs.
Jessie Silva is principal, sent seven
subscriptions to the Red Cross magazine.
The Department of Education has
asked teachers of the schools to as
sist as far as practicable In the work
of assembling field glasses for the
navy. Public school pupils are ask
ed to carry this Information home to
In regard to Red Cross work, the
Department has sent out advices that
It is essential to give the number and
names of the children pledged to do
Red Cross worK, numerating uio tuuue
by grades, before certificates can be
awarded and permission given to dis
play a special Red Cross banner.
The enrollment at Camp 10, Puu
nene, has fallen down to such an ex
tent that it will probably become a
one-room school next term. This Is
on account of so many Spaniards hav
ing left for the Coast.
The winter term of the schools will
close on Friday, the 29th. The re
opening will be on April 8.
Supervising Principal Raymond will
leave on Saturday for Molokal for a
tour of the schools. He will be ac
companied by Vocational Instructor
Bowman and wife.
Commissioner D. C. Lindsay went
to Honolulu Monday night.
Superintendent Kinney will be on
Maui toward the end of this month.
Mr. R. A. Wadsworth expresses
much satisfaction with the way the
schools have taken hold of the war
There is a great deal of sickness
rmong the children In most of the
districts I the island, whooping
cough being the principal ailment.
About fifteen male teachers of the
island are subject to the selective
draft, as the result of which there is
some concern as to the situation in
some of the schools in case they are
drawn for the war.

Rule In The Pur
chase Of Flour
The United States Food Adminis
tration Issues the following:
Misunderstanding of the Govern
ment's regulation of flour, placing its
purchase on a "fifty-fUty" ba3is, has
been very general. There seems to
have been a misconception of the
modification made to cover whole
wheat and graham flour containing at
least 95 per cent of the entiro grain.
With each 5 pounds of cither of these
flours, only 3 pounds of the allowed
substitutes must be purchased.
Scale of Compensation
Ninety-nve per cent extraction uses
about 20 per cent more of the grain
than goes into the average white
flour. It is to compensate for this 20
per cent saving that the Food Admin
istration allows a modification of the
To clear up this misunderstanding
the Food Administration quotes its
rule No. 26, governing transactions in
"The licensee dealing in flour at
retail shall not, without written per
mission of the United States Food
Administrator, sell wheat flour to any
person unless such person purchases
from him at the same time 1 pound
of wheat-flour substitutes, for every
pound of wheat flour purchased, or in
the case of whole wheat or graham
flour containing at least 95 per cent
of the entiro wheat, six-tenths of a
pound of wheat-flour substitutes for
every pound of such whole wheat or
graham flour purchased.

Honolulu, March 5 Tentative plans
for structures at Aala Park to house
exhibits at the territorial fair, provide
for five big buildings, extending from
Beretania to King street, or about
350 feet. These will supply shelter
for about 53,000 square feet of exhibi
tion space, and do not include the
edifice which will house the livestock.
The livestock pavilion probably will
be located along Nuuanu stream,
while across River street a plot of
ground a hundred feet square has
been offered by A. Hocking, the own
er, for use as a stock-judging stand.
The children's playground, at the
Beretania street side of Aala Park,
is to be converted into an amusement
division, where sideshow and refresh
ment tents may be installed.
Sufficient space will be left between
the big exhibit buildings for the
crowds, and the structures will be in
tersected at frequent intervals by
runways, through which the people
may pass from one street to another.
Total cost of erecting the buildings
will be nominal, far below the ex
