Harold Rice Talks
"Fair" To Hilo Folk
The Hawaii Post-Herald of Satur
day contained the following concern
ing the visit of Harold nice and oth
er fair promoters to Hilo:
After listening to argument for and
against the coming Territorial Fair
to be held in Honolulu next June,
the Hilo Board of Trade yesterday
went on record without an opposing
vote as being heartily in favor of
the plan as a patriotic move in these
The meeting of the board, called
primarily to consider promotion, mat
ters, was turned over to Georee
Angus, president of the fair commis
sion, and Harold Rice, one of the
Commissioners. James Henderson,
local representative of the commis
sion also spoke.
Introduced by Mr. Vicars, presi
dent of the board, Mr. Angus told in
brief outline the purposes of the fair.
He declared it is designed to assist
in making this Territory self-supporting
thereby easing the burden the
country is carrying. It will be as
serted, do more than any one thing
to teach the people of the Islands the
capabilities and possibilities of their
Territory. Mr. Angus was followed
by Mr. Kice who opened his argument
by calling for an expression of opin
ion from local men. He got it from
David McH. Forbes, manager of the
Waiakea plantation. Mr. Forbes
stated that he was opposed to the
fair as he regards the time as inop
portune. He added that good exhibits
can not be secured on account of the
Replying this Mr. Rice pointed out
what France is doing in this matter,
how the government is spending mill
ions of francs to promote and en
courage the holding of fairs for the
soldiers and the civilians. He told of
what England and Canada are doing
to hold lairs all over the agricultural
districts of those great countries. He
pointed out the ignorance of condi
tion and opportunities that exist
here and he sketched what the fair
would do for the Territory.
John T. Moir followed Mr. Rice,
saying that whereas he had been
doubtful he was now behind the fair.
James Henderson wound up the talk
with a few words in behalf of the fair
Supervisors Cabrinha then moved
that the board endorse the fair and
the motion was carried without op

groups of foods which the Food Ad
ministration is seeking particularly
Having signed this pledge, the re
tailers hangs the poster in his win

tomers. With the poster displayed in
his store, serves at once a nadvertise'
mont for the store and a constant re

customers of his obligation to Eell at
reasonable prices, as well as show his
To The Wholesalers
There is where the wholesalers may
do their part, by getting hold of the
retailer merchants, thro their sales
men who are in daily contact with
tho trade in tho Territory.
All wholesalers who have obtained
licenses are also invited to become
members of the Food Administration.
In order to obtain such a member
hsio the wholesaler must sign , a
pledge similar to that of the retailer.
This pledge, together with the list
of licensed foods, is also a part of
another large poster headed "War
Conservation Program." Each whole
salers is given a copy of this poster
to be signed and displayed in iis
place of business.
Each licensed dealer signing this
pledgo is also given a right to print
on his letterheads, invoices, and oth
er stationery the words "Member of
the United States Food Administra
tion." The particular duty of the sales
man is to obtain pledges from the re
tailers, ( and to supply those who en
lis with copies of the retailers post
er. Most merchants are patriotic, and
have been quick to come forward and
pledge their full support. This is the
democratic way of getting results.
The patriotic people want to trade
with the patriotic sores. That has
been demonstrated right here in our
own city of Honolulu. It is the patri
otic duty of every citizen to help the
Food Administration by reporting the
names and address of every dealer in
the food products, who does not dis
play the Food Administration Insignia
or Window Card, so that his name
may be published as a Non-Patriotic
The insignia of tho United States
Food Administration (which is the
Shield and Sheaf) may be used on
stationery, Invoices, etc., by whole
salers and other licensed dealers
signing the pledge to co-operato with
the Food Administration. ..
Red Cross Drive Put Off
Until Three Weeks Later
The Red Cross drive which was to
be started the first week in May has
been postponed until the week beginn
ing May 20, according to a cable re
ceived by A. L. Castle from nation
al headquarters in Washington. This
will give approximately three weeks
more in which to prepare for the campaign.
Liberty Loan Drive
To Open April 6
The first anniversary of the Amor
lean declaration of war is to mark
tho launching of the campaign for tho
Third Liberty Loan, according to a
copy of a telegram from the treasury
department to the govenor of the
Federal Reserve nanJc of San Francis
co, received by L. Tenney Peck
cnairman of tho Hawaii Liberty
Loan committee. The announcement
by Secretary McAdoo, of the treasury,
"The campaign for the Third Liber
ty Loan will be opened on the sixth
of April, 1918, the first anniversary
of the declaration of a state of war
between the United States and Ger
"The amount, terms and condition
of the loan have not yet been decided
because these features are dependent
upon further legislation. I expect
to ask the congress at an earlv date
to grant the necessary additional au
thority. Of course, the opening date
of the campaign is somewhat de
pendent upon the new legislation,
but it is hoped and believed that the
matter can be considered and deter
mined in ample time to begin the
campaign on the date suggested.
"April 6 will forever be a consecrat
ed day in American history and it
seems peculiarly appropriate that the
opening or tne second year of our
participation In this war. for the
honor and rights of America, and the
freedom of the world, should be cele
brated with a nation-wide drive for
another Liberty Loan
"The campaign should begin with
great demonstrations of patriotism in
every city, town and hamlet in the
country, that will truly express the
spirit of aroused America. On this
date every American should pledge
anew to his government the full
measure of his resources and resolve
to make every required sacrifice in
the same fervent spirit that impels
our gallant sons in the trenches of
France and on the waters of the
Atlantic, to shed their blood in Amer
lea's sacred cause.
"To carry forward America's essen
tial part in this war for righteous
ness and justice, every man and
woman in the country must lend their
available means to the government
and I know of no more fitting time
for such a patriotic response to the
call of duty than the beginning of the
second year of the war,
The campaign, in all probability,
will last three or four weeks, and an
nouncement of the opening date is
made at this time in accordance with
my promise to make public all mat
ters connected with the loan as soon
as determined and in order that
ample time may be given every com
munity to prepare for the event.
"I earnestly hope that parades ana
patriotic meetings will be neld in all
parts of the country. The treasury
department will endeavor to make the
observance of the anniversary of the
declaration of war as memorable as
was the patriotic observance during
the Second Liberty Loan campaign of
Liberty Day on the 24th of October,
