and 8th. grade room led with a total
of 122.43 for the work. Tho total
value of War Savings Stamp Certi
ficates and thrift stamps held hy
members of the school is $552.25. In
addition to the stamps, Liberty Bonds
to the value of $2450 are owned by
members of the school.
A course in First Aid was also
given to members of the school by
Miss Silva, the llamakuapoko nurse.
This course was well attended and
greatly appreciated by the pupils.
Next Saturday the High School
meets the Wailuku Gymnasium in a
swimming match for the cups offered
bv Wall & Dougherty, and Wickman
& Co. This match is the third be
tween the two institutions and is of
great interest as on the outcome will
depend the final disposition of the
cups. The Wailuku girls have won
twice and the High School 15oys have
also won twice. A third successive
victory is necessary in order that n
team may keep the cup permanently
so a win on Saturday night by either
the High School boys or the Gym.,
girls will give the cup permanently
to that team.
The match is to be held at the Wai
luku swimming tank at 7:30 and will
be followed by a dance.

rather than of military importance. There has been a virtual cessation
of infantry attacks on the French front. It is unanimously thought
that the present battle is the decisive one of the war but not the last.
The offensive has so far failed

MR. BOWDISH'S SERMON
Last Sunday the Rev. A. Craig
Bowdish centered his thought on "The
New Catholicism . He said in part
hat the question of righteousness and
moral obligation which in the past has
been held up to individuals as im
perative for them is vital today for
nations and races and peoples. Na
tions, races and peoples are acting
together ns units in new and far
reaching ways. Because of rapid
travel and communication the is
very close touch between nations.
Each group of people, no matter how
large, as well as seperate individuals
is compelled by circumstances to
think of and consider others. The
reality of this has been rapidly forced
upon the nations of the world during
the past few years. The crisis came
with the opening of the great war.
Speaking broadly, Jesus taught
three degrees of loyalty. The first (1)
was in his temptation when he refus
ed the suggestion that he was isolat
ed from God and independent from his
fellow men. He recognized his allegi
ance to God as well as to himself.
The second (2) degree appeared while
he was preaching and teaching. When
he was told that his mother and broth
ers wished to speak to him he an
nounced a broader, higher law than
that of physical kinship and personal
friendship. He stated that "Whoso
ever doeth the will of my Father is
my sister, and brother, and mother".
The third (3) degree came when
Jesus turned away from the popular
movement to make him king, to have
him restore the power of David and
the splendor of Solomon. Those who
urged Jesus to become king would de
ny the real brotherhood of man and
wished their king to become a Kaiser
over other races.
In these incidents of loyalty In the
life of Jesus one sees (1) the strictly
selfish; (2) the personal touch of
friend and family recognized but not
made supreme; and (3) Jesus em
phasizes the noblest ideal and highest
loyalty to the rights of men and the
broadest brotherhood among nations.
This touched nations and races and
peoples whom he could never know
The necessity of choice In these
three degrees is before nations, races
and peoples as such, as well as be
fore individuals. It is only within the
past few years that nations or races
or peoples have gotten as units be
yond the first degree of selfishness.
Up to the opening of the war only a
few nations had considered the sec
ond degree of personal friendship and
regard for one another. Yet today
the necessity for the third and most
comprehensive degree is being forced
upon the world if a lasting peace is
to be secured and maintained. Noth
ing less than friendly regard and con
sideration between nations, whether
large or small, is necessary.
A MESSAGE OF ENCOURAGMENT
By Rev. J. Charles Villiers
(Church of the Good Shepherd.)
Weeping may endure for the night,
but joy cometh in the morning, Psalm
William Ewart Gladstone, for many
years, the Prime Minister of England,
a man of saintly memory, once wrote
of the Book of Psalms:
'in that book, for well-nigh three
thousand years, the piety of saints
has found its most refined and choic
est food, to such a degree, indeed,
that the rank and quality of the reli
gious frame can be tested, at least
negatively, by its relish for them.
Therein is the music of the human
heart, when touched by the hand of
the Maker, In all its tones that whis
per and swell, for every fear, for ev
ery joy and pang, for every form of
strength, disquietude, and rest." This
30th Psalm bears the superscription
"A psalm of David." From the open
ing word to the closing word of the
psalm, In Its every sentence, there
breathes the spirit of the finest quali
ty of gratitude, faith, and hope. It
was doubtless, the offspring of some
great stirring of soul in the psalm
ist's life; the grateful asknowledge
ment of that "Divinity who shapes
our ends' better than we would, or
could, ourselves. And who, however
mysterious may be His dealings with
us, in Ills benevolence, brings light
out of darkness, good out of evil, joy
out of sorrow, and hy His over-ruling
providence, makes the strangest ex
periences in our lives to work out In
tho interest of our moral develop
There were dark spots, black ns
the darkest night, In the character of
David. He knew what it was to In
cur, as he calls It, In this psalm: the
anger of God. He sinned greatly and
grievously. He sinned against God
and man; against light and knowl
edge. But he reaped a large, if not
the full, harvest from the corrupt seed
of his sowing, and by experience
came to know that 'men do not gather
grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles.'
If David, as a sinner, is a beacon of
warning to us, he is also, ns a saint,
a beacon of encouragement and hope,
and, ns such, his companionship is
good for us. In this psalm he is
cheerfully optimistic, and full of cour
age. It is a psalm that might have
been written for our times, intensely
alive ns it is with the spirit that re
fuses to be cast down, or to lose con
fidence that though "weeping may en
dure for the night, joy will come in
Black as is the horizon, In human
affairs, at the present hour, dark as is
llie cloud that hangs over liberty-loving
peoples; though nothing can con
done the billows of human blood that
have been spilt by the principalities
and power of darkness, to attain ends
of imperial aggrandisement, utterly
at variance with the true service of
humanity, the pain and suffering and
death, and all their attendant sor
rows, shall not prove to have been in
vain. "The blood of the martyrs is
the seed of the Church" was the say
ing of old, and it was true. And the
blood now being shed, in Europe, in
the cause of righteous liberty, shall
rebound to the benefit of mankind.
The sorrow of today shall pass, and
be swallowed up in victory for a
righteous cause: Though this is the
darkest hour, save one, in the long
history of humanity, yet its Issue
shall be a new, and better, era for
tho world. Might has always, since
Cain slew his brother Abel, been in
conflict with right, and at times, for
the moment, has seemed to gain the
day, but In the end it has always fail
ed, and right has risen in mastery
over it, and proved to be the truly
progressive principle. Virtue, and
not vice, has a reparative quality.
There is a seed of salvation in the
Allies' cause which brute force can
not kill. "Weeping may endure for
anight , but Joy cometh In the morn
ing." That should be our encourage
ment. Awful as are the evils of this
cruel war, and it would seem that
they can not be painted in colors too
ghastly, they do not belong to the
things that are fixed and final. They
do not carry with them the things
that endure, that are abiding, and
eternal. They are on the way to jud
ment and correction. There have
been, cruel, and righteous wars in the
past but, perhaps, never a war so
cruel, and so absolutely without just-
ication as this war, but In the end,
the cannon has ceased to boom, and
the smoke of battle has cleared away,
nd peace has come. It shall come
again, and it will be peace with hon
or, and peace with blessing for all
mankind. "Weeping may endure for
the night, but joy cometh in the morn
ing." "Pat" Collins Is
