The pulilie schools have lost Super
vising Principal George S. Raymond,
who is first lieutenant in the Wailuku
company, and Manuel Joseph, voca
tional instructor of the Wailuku pub
lic school has also joined the colors.
When the draft goes into effect the
situation will be still more serious.
Manager Frank Ilaldwin, of the Ha
waiian Commercial & Sugar Company
stales that with the Guard and the
."ruftees taken his plantation will
have lost approximately 111 percent of
its total working force.
"It will mean a slowing down of
production", Mr. Baldwin remarked
in speaking of the situation, "But un
der the circumstances no one should
object. It is up to Islands to do their
part. If I can manage to keep my of
fice from being too badly depleted,
I'll be satisfied. Otlice work has been
increased greatly by the volume of
government reports and statistics now
required, and it is no easy thing to
handle this with a crippled staff'.
The same attitude is taken by prac
tically all heads of business enter
prises on Maui. There is no disposi
tion to complain or criticise. Maui
must do her part in the great war.
The slowing up of the wheels of in
dustry must be accepted ns a part of
the cost, to be made up as far as may
be by doubling up of duties for those
workers who are left.
Women May Help
It is probable that women workers
will be called upon to fill many posi
tions here that have heretofore been
considered as men's job. This will
probably be especially true In offices
and stores. Even for field work it is
likely that women and children will
be employed this rummer in much
greater measure than ever before.
They are being appealed to to lend
their assistance as a measure of patri
otism both to the nation and to the
plantations on which they live.

of the guard, including a number of
