Potato Exhibit At
(By J. M. Westgate U. S. Experl
Every person in Hawaii who uses
spuds with his meals would like to see
these Islands grow all the potatoes,
both Irish and sweet, that can be used
here at least during the period of the
war, will find a big and most inter
esting exhibit of these tubers at the
territorial fair in June.
We propose to feature those vari
eties of potatoes which thrive best
under the varying conditions en
countered in the Islands. It should
prove one of the most valuable edu
cational exhibits of the entire fair.
While the Irish potato is not so
certain a crop nor so heavy a yielder
as the swee' potato, yet the fact that
f,o many l rrsons are accustomed to
eatfn Irish potatoes rather than
sweet potatoes 'makes it Beem neces
sary to t.evote considerable attention
to the production of Irish potatoes
in conn it ion with the campaign to
make Hawaii self-supporting as re
gards her food crops. There are a
numbet of different diseases such as
the wilt, the blight and stem rot
which often seriously reduce the
yields unless the fields are properly
sprayed at the right time.
It has also been found that there
is considerable variation In the dif
ferent varieties as to their ability to
withstand these diseases, and to
make a good showing in spite of such
natural handicaps as are present.
The yield is quite as important as the
comparison and quality of the pota
toes and for this reason efforts will
be made to have exhibitors determine
the yields per acre of the potatoes
It has also been found that certain
varieties will succeed In one part of
Hawaii, but will not succeed In oth
er Darts which have a different rain
fall. As an educational feature, it is
planned to have the section produc
ing the crop indicated in, connection
with the different entries.
The following exhibits have al
ready been provided for and others
can be arranged if there is sufficient
Class 4. Irish Potato
Division A Best 10 lbs. White
Division B Best 10 lbs. Red variety
Division C Best collection of 3 or
Division D Best collection of new
and standard varieties 10 lbs. each.
Division E Best 5 lbs. any variety
raised and exhibited by any school
Division F Best 5 lbs. any variety
raised and exhibited by any public
Correspondence regarding any
phase of the potato exhibit at the
coming territorial fair should be ad
dressed to C. R. Willard, Secretary,
Box 253, Honolulu.
Coming Rummage Sale
At the meeting of the Kahului
Ladies Aid Society, held last week it
was voted to hold a rummage sale in
the Community House, Saturday,
April 13. The ladies plan to adhere
to this data for all future sales so r.s
to conflict with the sales held by the
Alexander Settlement in September.

RED CROSS ITEMS
A rotigh estimate has been made
of the number of women working for
the Red Cross on Maui. The average
number is 232, and the greatest num
ber registered is 309. Six nationali
ties are represented in this list, of
this number more than a third are
whites, one fourth are Hawaiian and
part Hawaiian, one sixth are Portu
guese and one tenth Japanese.
Two new sewing units have start
ed work. One at Puunene meets on
Wednesday afternoon at the Club
House and has an attendance of from
fifteen to eighteen Portuguese women.
The other, also for Portuguese, Is to
meet for the first time with Mrs
Rosecrans this Friday.
Rain and bad roads prevented the
regular Red Cross meeting at the
Seminary on Monday. The Hamaku-
apoko women, however, met with Mrs
Taylor and spent the day cutting out
hospital garments, while many of the
other members of the unit worked in
their own homes.
The Kahului Bandage Units gave
an extra day to their work this week
in order that a case of bandages
might go forward on Wednesday.
The Maul branch, of the Hawaiian
Chapter of the American Red Cross
wishes to draw the attention of the
public to the fact that it is against
the rules of the organzation to UBe

mobiles. This is a misuse of the em
blem as it designates that the machine
Is in the Red Cross service.
The removal of same is requested.
