of Hawaii about wheat. I have told
you more than once that Instead of
having 80,000,000 bushels to ship
abroad from the 1917 harvest, we had
only 35,000,000 bushels available as an
exportable surplus, and that every
bushel had been shipped about the
first of December. If our Allies do
not get wheat, and meat, they cannot
fight and it is physically impossible
to put our troops on the western
front in France in time to do any
good. We must fill the stomachs of
the fighting men in Europe and we
must sustain their families or our
cause is lost.
"Now let me tell you something. In
spite of all of the pleadings of Mr.
Hoover up to the middle of January
our consumption of wheat was almost
normal. We had hung the little cards
in our windows; we had knitted and
talked about food conservation and
then snaked white bread Into our
homes. The inevitable result will fol

ly without wheat for three months

Kellermann Film Shows Acquatict
To Maui aquatics always serve to
interest. Any amount of expert
swimming is to be seen in the $1,000,
000 film "A Daughter of the Gods"
featuring Annette Kellermann. While
Kellermann may not startle the
world with speed records the little
Australian appears to be more at
home in the water than probably any
maid who has ever sported at Wal-kiki.
To Maui-ites therefore, the burn-
ng of a sultan's city or tho clash
of thousands on the battlefield, as
shown In "The Daughter of the Gods,'
s not nearly so fascinating as the wa-
er race staged between Miss Keller
mann and a score or more Jamaicans
from whom she is seeking to escape
after a dive into the foaming sea
from a dizzy height. The race could
not have been better staged were it
held right off the shores of Maui. It
is a thriller,' Kellermann swimming
with long powerful strokes and the
natives of Jamaica threshing the wa
ter with their short, swift jabs. At
one stage Miss Kellermann is about
to be overtaken, but dives and dounies
on her tracks thus throwing off her
Another thrilling scene is miss is.ei-
lermann's descent of a rocky, turbu
lent stream that empties into the sea,
