Game Puunene May Quit
The baseball game last Sunday be
ween the Tala Seniors and the' Wailu
kus, was disappointing more ways
than one. It was far bsloifr standard
as a game, and the attennce was so
light that less than $5 were taken In
at the gate.
Wailuku lost by a score of 12 to 4.
There was a lot of shifting around
among the players of the local team,
which taken all together did some
pretty ragged playing.
Owing to the non-appearance of the
Paia Juniors, the second game was
forfeited to the Cubs. It Is reported
that the Paia second team is probRbly
out of the game for good, In which
case the Cubs and Orientals will play
next Sunday. If the latter team wins
this game it will also win the cham

MUST BACK THE GOVERNMENT
WITH ALL OUR STRENGTH
Few people, indeed, In this country
now fail to realize that we are fight
ing a brutal, relentless enemy. The
Indictment against the Hun grows
stronger every day. He is absolutely
devoid of pity or chivalry. An Ameri
can correspondent reports a conver
sation with a crippled British officer
who after a long stay in German pri
son pens, had been exchanged.
The officer told of men so feeble
from lack of food and bad conditions
as to be able scarcely to stand being
forced to work at the point of a bayo
net until they dropped from sheer
weakness; of badly set gun-fractured
arms and legs; of soldiers buried to
the accompaniment of the jeers of
German soldiers; of the long Journeys
of the badly wounded without relief
of dressings, food, or water; of wound
ed prisoners marched to exhaustion
and then shot down like dogs when
they no longer could walk; of prison
ers put into camps where typhus
This is the kind of enemy we are
fighting, and this is why all of us
must get down and put every bit of
our strength back of the Government.
For one thing, we must buy only those
things necessary to maintain our
selves In the most efficient condition.
That will give the Government more
labor and materials for war purposes.
And then with our savings we must
buy War Savings Stamps. That will
give the Government current funds
with which to use labor and materials
in the successful prosecution of the
war. We must do as President Wil
son asks u to do In his message
pledge ourselves on or before July 27
to save constantly and to buy regular

then be doing our part.

U. S. Working Reserve
Picnics At Lahaina
On the Fourth of July the boys
and girls of the Pioneer Plantation
enjoyed an outing such as will be re
membered for a long time.
Mr. Smith, Mr. Weber and Mrs.
Hoso had everything planned for giv
ing the boys and girls of the U. S.
Working Reserve some real fun. The
plantation train loaded with about 400
boys and girls left for Honokowai
early in the morning.
Once on the ground, the order of
events was races, with and without
logs, tugs of war, ball games and pat
riotic songs. Thoughtfulness and care
for detail on the part of those manag
ing the affair were everywhere in
When the singing began to take on
force under Mrs. Hose's direction the
"Long, Long, Trail" became materially
shortened and Johnny seemed already
in possession of his gun. The photo
grapher was about ready with his
camera at this time, and soon the
whole party centered on the bank so
that the future generations might
know that back in the years of the
Great War the boys and girls linked
themselves up with the Working Re
serve to work and play according to
Uncle Sam's rules.
The abundance of sandwiches,
cakes, soda and ice-cream which the
plantation so generously contributed
to make the affair a success, were
fully appreciated. It is certain that
this is a part of the story which will
never be forgotten even were it never
recorded. The boys and girls no
doubt went away a trifle tired but
none the less satisfied and happy.
INTERESTING M ADE-IN-GERM ANY
Every German in a foreign land Is,
in official Germany's eyes, an outpost
Oil German autocracy. Every outpost
of German business is considered an
outpost of the German Government.
An,d the careful record that has
been kept of German emigrants in
various parts of the world shows only
too well how much Germany is inter
ested in her emigrated citizens how
much she still counts on their being
German at heart, ready to forward
Germany's Interests, even to the ex
tent of damaging the interests of the
lands of their adoption.
Four maps reproduced In- the
World's Work for May are taken from
Perthes' Alldeutscher Atlas published
in Germany and containing a large
number of similar maps, showing
Germany's centres of influence all
over the world. The United States,
Canada, Brazil, Chile, South. Africa,
Australia, and a dozen other countries
hare all to consider the German in
their midst. In the United States,
.nearly a third of the country is, ac
cording to one of the maps, said to
be more than 30 per cent German. It
Is hardly conceivable that the per
centage is so high, but it serves to
bring home the seriousness of the
situation. Parts of Brazil are nearly
100 par cent German!
There are, on the map of the Uni
ted States, hundreds of crosses show
ing German churches. But they are
there not to show any religious tend
encies not to show any moral ben
efit to the country as a result of Ger
man immigration not to show the
high standard of the German popula
tion. They are there merely to show
the centres of German influence of
German Kultur, merely to show to
what extent Germany is prepared to
undermine the Interests of the United
States when those interests clash
with the Interests of the Fatherland.
According to the figures in the 1900
edition of the Alldeutscher Atlas, there
were at that time more than ten mil
lion Germans in America. Nine cities
of the United States had more than
100,000 Germans each, while New
York's total was slightly more and
Chicago's slightly less than half a mil
lion. It is possible for a German to take
out citizenship papers In a foreign
country without losing citizenship in
Germany. He can swear to uphold the
Constitution of the United T3ta "
without being considered by the f.
man Government anything other gjjta
a German subject. Consequently .he

Will Bearcat Task
British Authorities Already Planning
How It Is To Be Done Soldiers
To Be Cared For Till They Can
Get Back Into Civil Life
London, June 30 (Correspondence
of The Associated Press) Although
the end of the war may be far distant,
plans for demobilizing the British
army, when the proper time arrives,
are well under way. The military
authorities, acting in conjunction with
the Ministry of Labor, are perfecting
the scheme by which the soldiers will
be returned to civil life with the ut
most celerity, and at a camp not far
from London there has already been
a rehearsal of the methods to be
adopted for dispersing the men.
13ig as was the Job to get men in
to the army", said an officer engaged
in the work, "it will be a bigger job
to get them out of it. But the coun
try may be sure that everything will
be done to enable the soldiers to reach
their homes and get employment with
the minimum of friction."
The scheme is far-reaching. The
authorities have had to consider not
only the situation at home but also
how the plan will fit in with the con
venience of France, Italy and the
overseas dominions, and with trans
port facilities from Salonikl, Mesopo
tamia, Palestine and from other parts
of the world. How long it will take
to demobilize the millions of troops
is a question to which even those oc
cupied in the task are not prepared
to give a definite reply.
Eighteen dispersal depots are to be
established in England, Scotland and
Wales. Every step has been worked
oat in detail. Before the men in
France are ordered home, they will
be assembled in the order of the dis
tricts from which they came, so that
all may be sent in a body direct to
the dispersal depot closest to the lo
cality from which they joined the ar
my. Each man will take with him
his entire kit, including his arms and
personal equipment, steel helmet and
box respirator. Previously he will
have been deprived of his ammuni
tion. On reaching the dispersal stations
the men will hand over their equip
ment. Everything must be given up
except the uniform which the soldier
Is wearing, and his great coat, al
though the coat must be returned af
ter the month's furlough to which
each man will be entitled. He will
be permitted to retain his uniform.
The soldier will pass through sev
eral huts before he is sent on fur
lough. In one he will be given a pro
tection certificate, containing all par
ticulars regarding his regiment,
length of service and destination. In
another he will be given an advance
on the pay still due him, and postof
flce money orders in three equal in
stallment for the remainder.
On application, the soldier will be
presented with an "out-of-work" in
surance policy, valid for a year. This
will entitle him to receive a fixed sum
No Let-Up In Wheat
Saving Is Warranted
The Food Administration says:
"Recent press dispatches, widely
circulated through the country, have
given the wholly false impression
that there Is no longer need for rigor
ous conservation of wheat and flour.
The Food Administration declares
that every aspect of the wheat situa
tion, both present and prospective, in
tensifies the need for the greatest
possible limitation in the American
consumption of wheat and wheat pro
ducts. If present restrictions should
be in (be slightest degree relaxed it
would result in serious want for the
people of Europe before the new crop
can reach the market.
"The Food Administration's estimate
of the position on the first of June
indicates a total available supply un
til the new harvest, including the
grain which will be available from
the farms, in country and terminal
elevators, and mill elevators, of about
56.0U0.00O bushels. Of this thirty mil
lion bushels must be exported before
new wheat is available for export If
we are to maintain the absolutely ne
cessary shipments to our Army and
the Allies. That leaves about 26,
000,000 bushels for domestic consump
tion for the next two months.
"The harvest will not be generally
available in flour until the middle of
August or early September, although
in the extreme South it will be some
what earlier. At a meeting of the
Federal Food Administrators in Wash
ington yesterday, representing all 48
states, it was the unanimous view
that even if the harvest does prove
abundant it will be the first duty of
the American people to place every
grain they can save into storage
against possible bad years ahead. In
consequence there should be no anti
cipation of unlimited wheat bread un
til the war is over."
