from recent press releases of the Uni
ted States Food Administration:
One ounce less of Meat each day
for every-one means a savins of
4,000,000 Meat animals a year. Save

ounce less each day. This will keep
sugar plentiful and cheap.
If Each Home Saves
One ounce of meat daily it means
465,000,000 pounds annually.
One slice of bread, 365,000,000
One piece of butter, 114,000,000
One cup of milk, 912,000,000 quarts
or the product of 400,000 cows annual

Now is the hour of our testing.
We must save, serve and sacrifice.
If we are selfish or even careless,
we are disloyal; we are the enemy at

Lest all days to come be soulless
When meat packers and hotel men
boast of tons of meat saved on Meat

He that wasteth today will be hun

The man who laughs at you today
for saving, may envy tomorrow.
The stomach is a greater cause of

Go back to the simple life, be con

Win Good Game
In spite of the rainy weather, a
largo crowd turned out last Saturday
to witness what proved to be an ex
citing game of basketball, between
the Kahulul and Kamehameha basket
ball teams at the Alexander House
Gymnasium. The rooting and sing
ing on the part of the Kamehameha
boys was a very pleasant feature of
the game. Excitement was at a high
pitch throughout, and opposing fac
tions urged their djcerent teams to
win. The line-up was as follows:
Clark, H., center.
Kamehameha won the game by a
score of 25 to 15.

How To Save More Gas
The offlce of the Standard Oil Com
pany has recently received a list of
suggestions on methods to save more
gasoline. These suRRestions are re
commended by the National Automo
bile Chamber of Commerce. The
rules not only save more pas but
users of motor vehicles will be bene
fited personally and individually
through more efficient and more econ
omical operation of cars. Here are
1. Store gasoline in underground
2. Use measuring pump and hose.
They prevent Iohs by fire, evaporation
3. Don't spill or expose gasoline
to air it evaporates rapidly and is
4. Don't use gasoline for cleaning
and washing use kerosene or other
material to cut grease.
5. Stop all gasoline leakage. Form
habit of shutting off gas at tank or
6. Adjust brake bands so they do
not drag. See that all bearings run
7. Don't let the engine run when
car Is standing. It is good for starter
battery to be used frequently.
8. Have carburetors adjusted at
service stations of carburetor or auto
mobile companies they will make
ordinary adjustments without charge.
9. Keep needle valve clean and ad
just carburetor (while engine is hot)
to use as lean a mixture as possible.
A rich mixture fouls the engine and
10. Pre-heat air entering carbure
tor and keep radiator covered in cold

rization. 11. See that spark is timed correct
ly with engine and drive with spark
fully advanced a late spark increases
12. Have a hot spark, keep plugs

justed. 13. Avoid high speed. The aver
age car is most economical at 15 to
25 miles an hour.
14. Don't accelerate and stop
quickly it wastes gas and wears out
tires. Stop engine and coast long
15. Cut down aimless and needless
use of cars. Do a number of errands
in one trip.
16. Know your mileage per. gal.
Fill tank full and divide odometer
mileage by gallons consumed.
Visit To The Volcano
(Written for the Maui News by Sec
retary'Fred. J. Halton.)
It is not enough to merely say that
Hawaii is the most beautiful place on
earth, but in the absence from our
language of a superlative adjective,
it must suffice. Actuated by the de
sire primarily, to get into closer per
sonal touch with our fellow citizens,
the Promotion Committee visited the
Island of Hawaii. That the object of
the visit was achieved Is attested by
the warm welcome extended by the
Hilo Doard of Trade and the other
good people of the Island. The Pro
motion Committee desires to acknow
ledge the many courtesies received.
It undoubted goes to prove that where
Nature has been so lavish in provid
ing majestic scenery, usually the peo
ple are also big and broad in the
best sense of the words.
Coincident with the Equinox, Ma
dam Pele gave us a most wonderful
display and while her vagaries are
more or less familiar to the people
resident on the Island of Hawaii, no
description can adequately convey
the majestic beauty to others, and it
behooves every person on the Islands
of Oahu, Kauai and Maul to see for
themselves this titanic wonder. Not
to know Kilauea is to argue one's
self unknown It is something un
usual, exotic, unique, something with
which exerts almost a hypnotic in
fluence of desire to return again and
the subtlety of recurring suggestion
again to the beauties disclosed. Thus
it was that the Promotion Commit
tee, most of whom had visited Ha
waii and Kilauea many times, found
themselves on the brink of Halemau
mau every day and far into the night,
paying silent tribute to the Mother
Nature that has constructed a forest
of giant tree ferns and delicate flow
ers on the very brink of a desolate
waste of lava surrounding the most
stupendous and gigantic spectacle in

hours' leave to see your wife

Rice And Flour
The following has been issued by
the food administration as bulletin
Rice as a substitute has been per
mitted to be sold with flour but In
some localities this has not had the
effect of cutting down the consump
tion of flour, because the per. capita,
consumption of rice is four times that
of flour and many rice consumers
have developed a very strong appetite
for flour which they purchase with
their rice and trade the flour to others
thus enabling them to obtain their
Merchants are therefore urged to
sell substitutes other than rice with
Beginning April 15th rice will be
withdrawn from the list of substitutes
permitted to be sold with flour. You
should make every endeavor to ob
tain a supply of other substitutes.
