Corn Exhibit To
Be Noted Feature
Big Fair Should Be Helpful To Grow
ers Of Islands Future Of Crop
Here Is Bright
Honolulu, May 15 "Corn Is King!"
Never In history has that statement
been truer than it is today. With the
worl'i at war and our Allies in Europe
starving for want of wheat, corn has
assumed unusual importance in Am
erica and in Hawaii.
Tlii3 cereal constitutes one of the
most practical substitutes for wheat
flour that is available. The land
suited to rice is limited, and corn is
practically the only other cereal that
can be urown in the Islands. Ordi
nary agricultural 'linl is suitable for
corn and a laro increase in the
acreage is entirely practicable.
In some states the bulk of the pop
ulation substitutes almost entirely on
corn meal products as the main por
tion of its diet. This shows the pos
sibility of substituting corn for wheat
flour and releasing almost every
pound of the latter for the people of
France, who must be kept wdl sup
plied with food if they are to main
tain the superb fighting spirit that
hp.s enable! them to bear the brunt
of Hun kultur and frightfulness for
the last three years and more.
It will be interesting to people of
Hawaii in general to inspect the
different varieties of corn which will
! exhibited in the agricultural show
at the Territorial fair next month
The possibilities shown there should
result in a material increase in the
production of this valuable crop in
Pound per pound, corn meal essen
tially is equal to wheat flour, scienti
fic "fooders" tell us. For us it has
the added advantage In that it can
be produced in the Islands, whereas
wheat cannot well be rahsed here.
Cuban corn is a yellow variety
which has proved resistant to leaf
hopper, as has also the Guam corn,
which is a white variety. A yellow
Dent variety on the island of Hawaii

Too High-Food Board
There is absolutely no justification
for present price levels in the follow
ing substitutes for wheat flour:
At present prices of corn, barley
and oats, millers are or should be
offering meals and flours from these
grains at prices considerably below
wheat flour. In fact corn meal should
be selling from mill door at not over
ZTtrr less than whent flour nnd oat
meal even less ratio. White corn
flour or barley flour should be sell
ing at not more than ten to fifteen
per cent below wheat flour.
Wide publicity to these facts is
desirable. Retailers should not tBke
more than 16 to 20"on the sale price
for handling these products. The
wholesale maximum margins have
been fixed at not over 10 in bulk.
Any higher prices made at higher
levels will be followed up by the
Food Administration without let up.
Whera dealers still have slocks
bought at higher levels than these
prices, every step in the chain of re
tailers, wholesalers ()r millers
should be prepared to justify their
prices as reasonable and any failue
to so justify should be recommended
for summary action.
The time has come when the read
justment to the prices of these chains
should have taken place.
High prices on these Mibslitutes
primary were due to shortage in rail
way transport last winter and now
has become in many cases simple ex
tortion. Where dealers have paid more than
present prices they run risks of spoil
age in endeavoring to hold stocks for
prices at the old level and (he first
loss of reducing prices Is the smallest
