"Modern Thrift" takes on a great
importance in the Unlit of today's
war activities. Former attempts at
world domination have been compara
tively slight and never the work of
n carefully worked out ilan. Alex
ander the Great died early from dis
sipation nnd his generals soon sep
arated through jealousy. The Caesars
on the Roman hills sent their legion
aries far into conquered lands, but
the day came when few regretted the
advance of Goth and Vandal upon
the Eternal City because justice had
been forgotten and honesty was neg
lected. Charlemagne held only the
shadow of Rome's former greatness.
Napoleon held all by military' might
and the power of his own brain. And
his star set amid the clouds that rest
ed over St. Helena.
Today the world menace is far
more serious for it Is the result of
a century given to planning and a
half century of preparation. The
leader is a man of personally clean
habits who is obscessed with the
idea of Germany's world conquest.
He is surrounded by men who give ;
their whole time and thought to this, j
The whole nation under them has.
submitted to have the leaders do their
thinking for them. The German
menace is a movement that does not
rest on the career of any one man.
It therefore continues until suppress
ed by forces outside of itself.
To meet this world crisis the Allied
nations have organized the greatest
voluntary co-operation the world bv.
ever seen. The biggest pooling of
interests and property that' the world
has ever attempted. 'This has been
done and continues in spirit that
came into tbd "world In tbe early days
In;ihe! fdhding of the early church
USe primitive Christians were closely
associated together. Believing that
their leader, Jesus Christ, was
coming again soon, they did not be
lieve that they needed to save money
or make more. So they sold their
possessions, pooled the proceeds and
"parted them to all, according as
each man had need." This was a
new spirit in the world. It has had
a real place through the centuries.
It has now spread until it includes
half the human race that the war for
democracy may be won.
But we of today must make this
co-operation one for production and
riving no less than for spending. As
a war of nations each individual con
tributes his share. The more thrift
he exericese the more he speeds the
day of peace. The more he saves
and loans to the government, the
more he hastens the day of victory
and the freedom of the world.
REASONS FOR THRIFT
AND HOME SERVICE
By Rev. J. Charles Villers,
(Church of the Good Shepherd.)
I have been asked by our local rep
resentative of what might well be
called "The National Society of
Thrift" to say a few words on the
subject of "Thrift," not alone because
he asks it, but because the Govern
ment at Washington requests that
inch a word be spoken, if possible,
'oui ever' pulpit in the country, at
this time. I have also been asked by
he local representative of "The Home
Branch" of the American Red Cross
to say a word in its behalf.
First then as to the Home Service
Branch. The object of this branch
of the American Red Cross, as I see
it, is to make our religious faith and
fellowship Instinct with life, by rend
ering whatsoever service that sym
pathy would suggest should be render
ed, to our friends and neighbors, who
have husbands, or brothers, or sons,
bearing the burden and heat of the
day in connection with the war, and
to whom such service, wisely, and
sympathetically rendered, may prove
of great assistance. St. James re
minds us that one phase of pure and
undcfiled religion is to visit and care
for the fatherless and widows in their
afflictions. The Home service branch
of the American Red Cross proposes
to do this and more than this. It
might well be called the "whatsoever'
section of the Red Cross, for there is
scarcely anything which conies within
the pale of the family life of those
whose loved ones are in the active
service of our country whic'i will not
have the sympathetic interest of
those engaged in thif "Home
Service." And such servile, if well
and wisely rendered, will prove of
first importance to the community by
the unifying influence it will exert.
To be well done it must be done with
poise as well as piety, with sympathy
as well as pity. It will, I am sure, be
so done in this community, nnd its
results will be good.
And now a word on the subject of
Thrift. The times in which we live
are critical times. All times are
critical times. But some times are
more critical than are other times.
Such are the times in which we live.
We are dealing with questions that
have not only to do with the affairs
of the fleeting moment, but which
have far reaching issues, the very
root questions of society. But we are
moving forward from day to day with
out undue fear and apprehension. We
hope and believe that the future is
ours not for defeat but for victory.
It is, if we all do our duty. If we
cannot do all we wish to do, we may
do till we can and should do to win
the war. War is a great crime against
civilization, and against humanity, but
this war is a crime for which the Am
erican people are not responsible. The
guilt of that crime lies elsewhere.
There is abundant evidence, and It
is constantly accumulating, as to who
is responsible for the war. They are
responsible for it who thought that
by w;ir they could bring the civilized
world under their dominance, and
who treated nations, peacefully in
clined, with contempt and contumely;
who laughed at, and derided interna
tional laws, and swept them aside as
of no moment. Yes, and did even
worse, so far as America is concern
ed, for they abused her hospitality
nnd natience. and by numerous
agencies spread the seeds' f Beditlon
from one end to thC-oMiV, throughout
the country. -Th "made " promises to
us which they never kept, and never
meant to keep, and excused them
selves for. breaking them by the
flimsiest subterfuges. It was not un
til patience had ceased to be a virtue
that America went to war.
We nre now at war, and at war
with a good conscience, and with de
termination never to sheath the sword
until the world is Eafe for democracy.
Our cause is a righteous one, and for
that reason we should be willing and
glad to make sacrifices for it. One
means by which we can help to win
the war is by "Thrift." When we speak
of thift we use a word which in de
finition comprehends two other words
economy and frugality.
By yirift we can save money, more
or less, according to our circumstanc
es, with which to buy War Saving
Stamps. By economy and frugality
we can go without whatever is not
necessary to life and health. And by
the same token we can, perhaps, our
selves, produce some of the necessi
ties of life, thereby adding to the sum
total of food that must be sent to our
soldiers and sailors, and to those
who are our allies la this holy cause,
whose lack is far greater than our
In a pamphlet issued by the gov
ernment at Washington, twenty ways
of practicing thrift or economy are
suggest e. Not all of these are avail
able to us of these Islands. But sev
eral of them are. These I will name.
(1) Avoidance of all unnecessary
travel, by rail, by water, or by motor
car. (2) By buying clothes not only
for appearance but for wearing qual-
ities, and by keeping our old clothes
in good repair, and wearing them un
til they are threadbare. (3) By ab
staining from luxuries. Including a:
muscments for which we have to pay.
What we can save by these means,
and by other sacrifices we are urged
to put into War Saving Stamps and
Liberty Bonds. Of course we must
recognize that "all work and no play"
trends to dullness and monotony,
Recreation is almost as much a need
its is food. But any form or recrea
tion or amusements overdone makes
for "unthrift", and some would say.
shows a defect in character.
The secret of true thrift is fore
thought. It consists not only in sav-'
ing, but in investing wisely what we
No better investment can be made
at this time by one who loves his
country than that which his country
asks of him. This war is a most
costly one. The monthly bill, we are
told, to be paid by the national trea
sury will soon be two billion dollars.
Stupendous as is that figure, the end
to he gained, and that will be gained,
is such as will be a blessing to on
coming generations. And it is not
to be forgotten that when the gov
ernment at Washington urges us to
invest in War Stamps, and Liberty
Bonds, it is not asking us to put our
money into a bag with holes in it
Rather is it asking us to regard it
as seed to be planted in good soil
which will be fruithful for others and
also for ourselves. Our money is to
be put to good use, to high moral
purpose the redemption of peoples
who, for the moment, at least, are en-
Miss Margaret A. Rodrigues of Wai-
luku, Maui, whose engagement to Mr.
John T. Osorio of this city was an
nounced some time ago, has been on
a visit to this Island, accompanied by
her sister, Mrs. Charles P. Bento, also
of Wailuku. They left yesterday on

the Mauna Kea for their home on the
Valley Island, expressing themselves
as more than delighted with what
they had seen of Hawaii.
While here Miss Rodrigues and
Mrs. Bento saw more of the Big Is
land and its beauties and points of
historical Interest than many resi
dents of Hilo have been privileged to
enjoy. Their visit included Kalapana,
Kapoho, and all of Kau as well as the
volcano and its environs. In Kau
they were the guests of Dr. A. T. Roll
who have recently gone to that dis
trict from Hilo.
The marriage of Miss Rodrigues
and Mr. Osorio has been Indefinitely
postponed, awaiting the draft, and
Mr. Osorio's status in that call. Al
though entitled to deferred classifica
tion, since he is the head of a busi
ness house in this city, nnd his ab
sence will mean that the house will
have to be closed, Mr. Osorio did not
ask exemption. He is in Class 1-A,
and confidently expects to be called
Into service next Monday.
Miss Rodrigues is a piquante brun
ette, nnd made many admirers for
herself by her charm and beauty
while she was on this island. Ha
