Business On Maui
Hard Hit By Draft
National Guard Call Has Crippled
Many Industries Handicap Ac
cepted Cheerfully Business Must
Slow Up Women And Children
The calling out of the' Nation! Guard
has hit Maui pretty hard, notwith
standing the fact that it was expect
ed and that its effects had been in a
measure anticipated. Almost every
business concern has lost one or more
of Its employees. Some have been
practically stripped. The Moir Gar
age, for instance lost 4 out of 5 men
when the guard companies were must
ered on last Saturday. Gesner'
Garage lost its only man, H. M. Ges
ner the manager being away on the
coast. The place is being looked af
ter by friends.
Cant. W. S. Chillingworth, court
stenographer, has left his desk un
occupied. The police force has lost
a number of men. Both the Bank of
Maui and the Baldwin National Bank
are short handed, the former losing
Mr. Bridgeford, its insurance man,
and the latter W. H. Engle, assistant
The Kahului Railroad has lost 70
men. The Wailuku Sugar Co., the
Puunene plantation,- and the Maui
Agricultural Co., have all lost import
ant office men and clerks, besides
large numbers of laborers.
John Watt, county agent for the
food commission, left for Honolulu on
Monday night to join his company.

And Later To Schofield

ANOTHER "DRIVE" FOR
SLACKERS LOOMING UP
Ag soon as the two regiments of
the National Guard have completed
their mobilization, a round-up of draft
deserters will be started by selective
draft officials. The round-up will be
conducted under Instructions received
Xrom the provost marshal general's
office in Washington. Every local
man of draft age will be required to
show his classification card, and will
probably be taken into custody if he
fails to produce it.

RAILROAD CO'S STAFF
J. Patterson, for several years sta
tion agent for the Kahului Railroad
at Wailuku, has been promoted to the
The three central Maui companies
of the 2nd Battalion,, 2nd Regiment,
National Guard, are under orders to
proceed to Honolulu on Sunday even
ing from Kahului. It is presumed that
an Inter-Island boat will be seht for
the men. The Lahaina company will
probably go down Sunday night or
Monday on another steamer.
The Maui companies have been at
work all week getting ready. They
are already in .Uncle Sam's service,
their status having changed last Sat
urday morning with the call for mob
ilization. It is now pretty definitely known
that the Guard is intended only for
garrison duty on Oahu. It will prob
ably take the place of regular troops
already, or about to be withdrawn
from Schofield or Shafter. There is
also a report that the guadsmen will
be drawn upon to fill up to full war
strength various infantry regiments
on Oahu. Should this be the case it
will mean that some of the guardsmen
at least will probably have a chance
to see foreign service with these other
It is also believed that the men of
class A-l of the draft will be used in
so far as needed to recruit up the
strength of the guard companies.
Busy Week For Everybody

where he will take up active work
lor the Red Cross. He will be for
the time being an assistant in the
Red Cross canteen which has been
opened for the benefit of the national
guard troops at Fort Armstrong. Lat

High School Girls To
"Enlist" In Cannery
The girls of the Maui High
School have announced (heir
intention of doing their part to
help win the war by working
during the summer vacation in
the Haiku cannery.
It is reported that practically
every girl in (he school bVs
agreed to do this. Most of these
girls have never done any real
work in their lives outside of
the school room or their homes,
but they seem quite determined
to do some now.
Work In the cannery is not
heavy or unplensant, but it is
monotonous and the hours are
long. But the work must he
done, and the high school girls
will be deserving of high credit
if they carry through their

meeting of the Commissioners of Pub

Monday and Tuesday of last week.
As usual, all of these appointments

aminations. No teacher, who should
