Harder For Cooking Prizes At Ter-
t p Right
In the name of Honolulu's reputa
tion as a city of pood rooks, an ap
peal to housewives of the community
was issued yesterday by a committee
of local women who held a council of
war at the Y. V. C. A.
The city's reputation as the abode
of most of the finest cooks in the Is
lands, Is seriously menaced. It has
just been discovered that women of
Maui, already thoroughly prepared,
will send to Honolulu more than two
hundred exhibits of their cookery to
compete for honors in the food con

expect to take the lion's share of the

Local members of the food conser
vation committee have just awaken

very compact organization of commit

women ,uid that they nave been j
quietly at work on a regular plan of
campaign for several w.eeks. It is
believed that almost every one of the
two hundred or more women there '
knows exactly what she is to exhibit, j

To meet this situation and thwart

DELINQUENT EMPLOYERS MAKE
EXCUSES TO ACCIDENT BOARD
More than a dozen employers of
labor who had neglected to take out
compensation insurance for their em
ployees, were before the industrial
accident board on Tuesday on sum-jms-ies
issued through the county
attorney. Most of these had excuses
and it is probable that, with a few
exceptions the board will ask that
the cases against them be dropped.
Fifteen or twenty others who failed
to appear before the board, will have
their cases settled at the June term
of circuit court which sits at Lahaina.
A new opportunity for earning
money is that of collecting castor
beans. J. M. Westgate of the Federal
Experiment Station, will pay five
cents a pound for shelled beans and
in lots of four pounds and under will
furnish franks for postage. If there
are larger quantities, they should be
sent by freight. There is no deter
ioration and the beans may b held
until a largo bag is collected.
Mr. Westgate requires, however,
that the following conditions be ob
served: The b"ans gathered in each
locality shall be kept separate, and
ii tag attached, telling where the
beans were collected, what kind of
soil they were grown in: that, is,
whether rocky, heavy or light soil.
The value of the work of the ex
periment station is to test, the beans
'if different localities, in order to find
cut whether or not there is a differ-I
euee in oil content and which locnli- '
i'ies offer a field for producing the i
It i:-. of value to locate the places i
where castor beans are now growing j
and to get an idea of the quantity of
beans now available. The schools
will be doing a useful service by get
ting this information and will al;;o be I
nhli. in tti!tL-. until., mnm.i- I
If the oil production proves to be
profitable, the price may be increased
