There is still plenty of opportunity in this territory for construc
tive organization along; conservation lines. Not that the Ked Cross,
food administration, and other organized work is not doing" splendid
work, for they are, hut most of this is directed from the mainland and
the mainland directors naturally overlook some things that apjp'y
particularly to Hawaii.
For instance the children of the Inlands have recently collected
several hundred pounds of tin and lead foil, w hich will he sold for about
5 cents per pound and tile money turned over to the Ked Cross. This
was done at the instance of the mainland Red Cross organization. Hut
tiiere are other things that miyhl he saved through the efforts of the
children that the mainland knows nothing ahout. hut which would net
much more than tin foil.
As an example there are large quantities of castor beans now ripen
ii g" and going to waste all over the Islands, and particularly on Maui,
tor which a price of 5 cents per pound has been offered. Children
would readily collect these beans were there some local organization
to direct the work, receive the beans, and pay for them. The castor
bean oil is badly needed in connection w ith the new airplane industry.
Then there are great numbers of 5-gallon coal oil tins which should
be saved but which are going to waste or being sold at a fraction of
their real value. These cans cost in wholesale quantities between 40
and 50 cents each, and yet they are being bought by honey men and
others for 5 cents each, when they are saved at all. The used cans
should, bring several times this much.
A Wailuku garage manager stated a few days ago that consider
able quantities of copper gaskets from Ford machines, and other odds
and ends of copper accumulate at his garage for which there seems to
be no demand as junk. He stated that he would be glad to give this
material to the Red Cross or other organization that could make use
These are but instances. I'ut no one can turn this waste into
money without aid of some organization. It would seem that local
workers, independent of mainland organizations, should be able to effect
these savings with comparatively little effort.

A party platform amounts to about as much as the'average man's
New Year's resolutions. It expresses some lofty sentiments, makes
some alluring promises, and furnishes the party candidates subjets
for their stump speeches. After that it usually has ahout the weight of
rhe scrap of paper it is written on.
It would be nice to believe that the platform adopted by the replia
nt an convention this week will prove an exception, but that is too much
to expect. Some of the planks will of course be carried out, but the
platform will never have to be invoked on their account they must
come to pass in the natural order of things and their endorsement as
party measures means little. Nor do professions of loyalty to the na
ton mean anvthinsr, unless to weaken the document by suggesting' a
doubt where none before existed.
The democrats will soon come forth with a similar pronouncement,
except that it will contain doubtless a lot ot impossible aims, whereas
the republicans' are not impossible, but simple improbable. .
The endorsement of Kuhio may make strength for the party. Then
again it may not, according to the way you look at it. In this time of
facing situations squarely it might have been just as well to take Kuhio's
statement that he stands on his record at its face value and to have
asked him to take a back seat.
The elections are coming apace. On the mainland this year there
will be but little of the usual campaign log-rolling and wire-pulling
There is no issue save to win the war. That issue is with Germany and
not amonsr ourselves, and it will make no difference what label the
men who occupy the seats in the national capitol wear next winter.
Here in the Islands the main issue is conservation. Not only con
servation of money, but of time, and energy. In normal times we may
perhaps afford to be extravagant in these things, but we can't afford
i us luxury now. Let us have a Hooverized campaign. let us nom
inate and elect only men who can be counted on to carry out a con
servative, business-like policy. Let us make patriotism a watch-word
and not merely a campaign slogan.
DISCIPLINE BEII1XD THE IJXES
nox'r wait to '; asked
It has been brought
i'i Maui feel thai they
. arious war acliv ilies in
.wee the I law aiians, of
to our attention that some of the 1 lalwaiians
have been overlooked in connection with the
the community. This is the more surprising
all the races are most closely in
everything that goes to make up community hie. It there is any such
fee'ing on the part of any class of our people it is wrong and should
be quickly dispelled by the leaders of the various races.
c are not in this war as a lot of separate groups, but as a united
whole. No one should wait to be asked to take part in any activity that
ias to do with the war. It is the PUTY of every man, woman and
child of whatever race, color or creed to come forward and offer to do
lis part. It is no time to nurse sensitive feelings. It IS a time to work
for the common end. If a house is on lire and the lives of women and
hildren are threatened it is no time to stand on ceremony as to who
t louici go to the rescue or try to put the lire out.
Iiccausc a man isn't asked to help the Ked Cross, to buy Liberty
l'.onds or War Savings Stamps, or to save food, is no excuse for his
not uoinsr all these things. ;nd it any man or woman can intiucnee
nother to do these things it is his or her duty to do it, even if nobody
links to ask him to.
Maui has a proud record of pulling together. It is the only way
to get things done. It is the only way the war can be won. Keep your
self informed and tell your neighbor. Mo everything you can and don't
v Tit to be asked.
THE CIVIC COXl'EXTIOX
Honolulu believes that it would be a mistake not to hold the annual
Civic Convention this year as usual. 1 he Honolulu Chamber of Com
merce lias officially expressed this view, and the Ad Club and other
Honolulu civic organizations will probably take thesamc stand..
I his of course indicates that Honolulu has no doubt that she can
send a representative delegation to the convention, uccausc wunour me
Honolulu organizations taking the leading part there could be no con
dition. Maui agrees with Honolulu that the meeting should be held. Rut
he is not .anxious to stage a frost, and some sounding out of Honolulu
iiisiness men had led to the fear that Honolulu business men generally
ire so over-worked owing to loss of their employees through the na
tional guard and draft calls that few of them would feel able to spare
he time necessary to attend.
Hilo seems to take this view of the situation, but ililo doesn t
iunt to the degree that Honolulu does. If Honolulu guarantees to
do her part the convention will be a success. It is now up to Maui to
get busy to make sure that we shall hold up our end, both in the con-
ntion and as host to the rest of the territory.

The value of gasoline lies in the uni
form continuity of its boiling points.
In Red Crown, the Gasoline of Qual
ity, the boiling points form a con
tinuous, uniform chain.
Only a straight-distilled, all-refinery
gasoline can have this continuous,
uniform chain. Mixtures always have
"holes" in them.
Ked Crown is a straight -distilled,
all-refinery gasoline having the full
and unbroken chain of boiling points:
Low boiling points for easy starting,
medium boiling points for quick and
smooth acceleration, and high boil
ing points for power and mileage.

There are enemy aliens and there native aliens. The American who
does not do his part toward winning the war, who neither fights nor
works nor lends tor victory is as much an alien to' America s purposes
a d America's cause as the rankest Prussian interned in this country.
This is a war of peoples as well as of nations, and each individual
has a place and a duty.
Over eight hundred thousand of America's sons are already on
the fields of France where the bloodiest attacks of all history are rag
ing. They arc suffering and dying for us at home. They are giving
their lives freely and heroically to save America and liberties of man
kind. They need food, clothing and arms. Everyone who buys War
Savings Stamps helps himself and helps directly every American hero
m France. Isn't this the least each patriot can do to enable our gallant
boys to fight victoriously or to die gloriously in the cause of humanity
and Liberty? Let no one who genuinely loves America and wants to
serve fail to purchase their limit by July 27th. Secretary McAdoo.
Every man, woman, and child in America can help win the war.
i'very man, woman, and child who buys a Liberty Rond or a War
Savings Stamp does something toward winning the war, enlists in one
division of national service, supporting the Government, and backing
up our fighting men in France and on the seas.
According to the last report from the Treasury Department the
total sales of War Savings Stamps to June the first amounted to $26S,
5. 9 ,025.84, or per capita sales of $2.55. On June the first Hawaii's per
capita sales amounted to $1.72.
With recent loans of nearly $16,000,000 to Greece and $11,000,000
to Belgium, the aggregate loans made by the United States to our allies
now amount to practically $6,000,000,000.
A man's ability is measured by what he accomplishes, brit the man
himself is of vastly more importance than his works. The Germans
have got this turned around.
Buy War Savings Stamps tomorrow not "till it hurts", but until
conscience makes you feel better than you ever felt in your life.
