LET GERMAN ENEMIES WORK
There is no reason why an alien enemy should become a public
crharge. Yet this is likely to be the case unless he is permitted to earn
his living at some useful occupation. There is good reason in not per
mitting Germans to hold positions of high responsibility or of a kind
that would place them in position to work injury to the nation.
It is reported, how ever, that many both alien enemies and also
naturalized German American citizens, have been discharged from their
positions by zealous employers for no other reason than that they
wre presumed to be in sympathy with the Central Fowers. The de
partment of justice has pointed out that this is not a reasonable course
since even an alien enemy is likely to be less dangerous if well occupied
than if idle.
There has been some criticism here on Maui against the sending
of various Germans to Maui plantations from Oahu. Provided these
men are properly supervised there should be no objection to this. But
there should be no chances taken that this supervision shall be adequate.
An internment camp should be established for all who arc unruly or
for other reason are considered a menace, but in the great majority of
cases a strict surveillance should suffice.
POLICING THE WASTE
The housewife in England who is found throwing away bread may
be imprisoned or fined as much as $300. There arc similar fines for
wasting eggs by making cake that is too rich, for wasting sugar in f Hast
ings and for feeding crumbs to a canary.
In France the baking of pastry or biscuits from flour that is fit
for bread is prohibited. The person who is found eating pastries in a
public eating place is liable to imprisonment or fine.
But in America the housewife is put on her honor to conserve
food and abolish extravagant habits. She is her own policeman.
A shining example of how quickly and enthusiastically the house
wives of America have responded to this honor system in conserving
food is to be found in the garbage collection in the principal cities of
the country. The last November garbage collection in the principal
cities was 11 lower than the November collection of 1916. Thus
housewives of Galveston, Texas broke the record for any individual
ciry by reducing their garbage collection to two-thirds less than what
it was last November!
This shows what splendidresults may be obtained when American
women once set their shoulders to a task. There is hardly a woman in
the country now who has not stopped the leaks in her kitchen through
which edible, wholesome food formerly found its way into the garbage
There are, on the other hand, many women who are scrupulous in
most ways about saving food, but who are unconsciously wasting a
considerable amount of the most needed food for the Allies wheat.
Whenever wheat flour is used when rye, cornmeal, or barley might
hive been substituted for it either in whole or in part, the wheat is be
ing wasted almost as much as if it were thrown into the garbage can.
At any rate it isn't going to feed a soldier as it should.
This applies to the making of cakes, puddings, and pastry as well
as to the making of bread. It is unfair for any housekeeper to make
these more or less fancy dishes out of all wheat and so use up the flour
hat her neighbor is caefully saving by eating Victory bread.
It is unnecessary on the other hand to give up cakes and puddings
altogether for all of these may be made with combination flours with
only a small proportion of wheat, or as many ingenious housekeepers
have already found, they may be made without any wheat at all as the
f jl'owing ecipe shows :
4 eggs 1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 cup sugar Y teaspoon salt
1 cup barley flour
Separate the whites and yolks of eggs, beat yolks, add juice and
sugar, then flour. Fold in well-beaten whites of eggs and bake in slow
USING THE CANNED THINGS
What a difference a long row of canned foods in your fruit closet
makes in your state of mind.
It answers the question, "What am I going to have for dinner to
might and how am I going to get it ?" It also does away with the terrors
of the unexpected guest. Your problem is solved, the row of canned
' foods has simplified life for you.
Last summer the entire country was smitten with the healthy
contagion of canning. Women who had always delicately avoided
even speaking of what went on in their kitchens, rolled up their sleeves
'and spent hours studying and putting into effect the "cold pack"
method, other women who generally only "preserved," last summer
canned vegetables, meats, soups and, some of them, even fish.
Now that we have all this canned foodstuffs on hand, don't hoard,
use it! Get ready to put up more this season.
Authentic information secured by the U. S. Food Administration
indicates a well-planned German Propoganda intended to magnify the
distress of the Central Powers with respect to their food supply. By
punting conditions worse than they actually are, the enemy, hopes to
lull the American mind into the belief that we are fighting a people on
. the verge of collapse and that early peace is certain.
Such an attitude here in the United States will delay preparations,
defeat food conservation and in countless ways weaken our military
and economic force. The Central Powes have control of thousands of
square miles of productive lands in Poland, Roumania, Serbia, Belgium
and France. Much of this is wheat land and such possessions added
to home recources make starvation through blockade a remote and
t utile hope. Under her system of rationing, Germany's cattle supply
Is ample for several years.
The Central Powers can raise sufficient food for all needs if they
ate obliged to do so. The chief value of the blockade is to compel a
diversion of energy from war industries to agriculture. Food ration
ing is a necessary conservation measure but does not signify early
starvation. It is further pointed out that local revolt against restric
tions imposed by the authorities will be suppressed by the most drastic
Much of the German propaganda in the United States is so plausible
and pictures conditions so similar to what we should like to believe that
many loyal Americans both in this country and abroad have succumbed
to its charms and unknowingly have helped to spread it. Any rcjiort,
cablegram or letter portraying weakness of the Central Powers, especial
ly purporting to be "inside" information bears the earmarks of German
propaganda. Using every energy to prepare for a long war is the most
effective means of bringing the struggle to an early end. Let no one
in Hawaii for a moment relax his or her efforts.
Red Cross workers in Honolulu have again called attention to the
misuse on Maui of the Red Cross emblem on automobiles. With the
I est of intentions a large number of persons arc carrying the red cross
on the wind-shield, or other part of their cars. But this is decidedly
3 misuse of the emblem unless such car is actually in the service of the
A correspondent expresses surprise
at the Idea of the Honolulu news
papers charging for advertising space
for Red Cross, Liberty Bond, Tobac
co Fund and other war causes, and
asks why this space is not freely don
ated. The position taken by this
correspondent is a common one and
indicative of the false impression
that prevails among many. As a mat
ter of fact, the Honolulu press con
tributes more of its merchandisable
commodity, which is space, to the
cause of the war, charity, uplift and
comniunityifTair3 generally than any
other business in Hawaii. It cannot
give away all that it has and con
tinue to exist. When the merchants
strip their shelves and give their
wares away to the government, when
the lawyers abandon their practise
and devote all their time to war
causes, when laborers contribute all
their time to government work, when
the government officials serve with
out pay and the army and the navy
forego their paydays for the period
of the war, then the press can con
sistently bo asked to give all its ad
vertising space free to all war causes.
Why Not Thomson?
The people of the Territory are
still awaiting the appointment of the
successor to Louis Weinzheimer as
manager of the Tioneer Tlantation
at Lahaina. Two names are being
mentioned pmong the members of
the inner circles in Honolulu ac
cording to information Xrom that
city. These are Gaylord Wilcox and
William or "Buck" Thomson. Now
as between these two men there can
' - -'Mile choice from the point of
view oi Americanism and the public
interest. This is said in no dis
paragement of Mr. Wilcox. His con
nection with the Isenberg Huns of
Kauai, and people of the Fraulcin
Heuer stripe militate against him for
a position of such importance as the
managership of the Lahaina planta
tion. We do not want pro-Huns in
charge of our plantations no matter
how good they may be as sugar men
and executives. Were this not the
case there would have been no reason
why Louis Weinzheimer should not
have lived and died as manager of
the plantation. It was Louis Weinz
heimer, the Hun, that was not want
ed; not Louis Weinzheimer, sugar
man. The appointment of Thomson,
on the other hand would be to the
public's advantage at this time. He
is fully as good a man as Weinzheim
er as a manager of a sugar plantation.
He has had wide experience, is a cap
able executive and organizer, and best
of all ho is an ardent pro-Ally and has
always shown himself heart and soul
for the cause lor which America is
fighting the Blond Beasts of Kaiser
Ism. He would clean out the Hun
cesspool in Lahaina as no Wilcox,
with the Wilcox proclivities and synv
pathies would ever dream of doing.
Instead of being an offense to decent
Americanism as it has been for years,
Iviihaina would become a place where
self-respecting American and Allied
individuals could live. Therefore,
Why Not Thomson? Hilo Post- Herald.

you want to join that?

by trade and I thought maybe my
previous experience would help me.

FLOUR TO MERCHANTS
IS TO BE LIMITED
Under no circumstances are dealers
permitted to sell flour to consumers
without an equal amount of substi
tutes at the same time.
Grocers should not take on any new
wheat flour customers and should aid
in conservation by limiting their cus
tomers to 1 pounds per person per
week as provided for in rule one of
Bulletin No. 72.
Crocers should register their cus
tomers taking the number of persons
who consume flour so that they will
be able to make their flour last until
next seasons crops are available.
Mills are limiting the quantity ship
ped to jobbers and when jobbers have
sold their allotment they will not have
more wheat flour to sell the retailer.
All should therefore reduce their
flour sales to a minimum. If you sell
your six months allotment in three
months there is liable to be three
months wlien you have no wheat flour
