How Army Is Saving
Food And Clothing
Rigid System Of Taking Care 01
Waste And By Products Points
Way To Conservation In Civic Life
German Efficiency Rivaled
Honolulu, July 23 Steps have been
taken by the Quartermaster General
to prevent nil waste of foodstuffs in
the United States Army and to re
claim and salvage all worn-out and
cast-off material. It is believed that
the new Division of Conservation and
Tteelanintion will accomplish a hi rue
saving of war supplies and expendi
tures by the Government, as well as
provide for more satisfactory disposi
tion of garbage and manure. The
British, French and other Allied
countries have instituted similar ser
vices with gratifying results, and the
recommendations which were sent to
the War Department for the establish
ment of such a service in the Ameri
can Army embody the methods of
operation in these countries.
The method of handling food waste
from messes will be of particular in
terest to those at home who are sav
ings food for the boys "over there."
This new plan will not restrict the
amount of food that they may eat,
but it will save much that was form
erly lost through carelessness. Kach
organization of the army which con
ducts a "mess" will be required to
make the following separations of
kitchen waste produced in the pre
paration and service of each meal:
Bread, which will include all bread
stuffs unfit for human food. It will
be dried and sacked for delivery
Cooked Meat, which wil 1 include
all meat gathered up from the indivi
dual plates after meals.
Raw Food and Meats, which will
include the trimmings and raw scraps
rejected for use as food, and meat
condemned by health authorities as
unfit for human consumption.
Cooked Grease, which will include
all grease discarded as being of no
further value as human food.
Bones, which will include all bones
discarded in the preparation and
use of human food.
Other Garbage, which will include
all unusable portions of food not oth
erwise classified, but will not include
coffee ground, glass, or other sub
stances Injurious for use as food for
All of these articles, except "other
garbage" will be weighed at the kit
chen and a statement of the quanti
ties of each will be forwarded to the
Camp Conservation and Reclamation
Otllcer at the time this material is
The Food Division of the Medical
Department will work very closely
with the Reclamation and Conserva
tion Division of the Quartermaster's
Corps. The Nutrition Ollicers of the
Food Division will take care of the
inspection of foods and rations with
special reference to nutritive value
and conditions of storage, and will co
operate in the reduction of waste in
preparation, waste in Bervice and the
prompt utilization of food not served.
These officers will co-operate with
the Conservation and Reclamation
Otllcer with reverence to the best
classifications, separation and dis
position of wastes from food.
The Reclamation and Conservation
branch of the Quartermaster's Corps
will also have active charge of farm
ing and garden operations for each
camp, cantonment, army post and
general hospital. The produce raised,
if of suitable quality, will be used in
rationing troops and foraging animals.
These agricultural operations will be
supervised by experts from the Uni
ted States Department of Agriculture
It Is extremely interesting to note
how thorough the Quartermaster Gen
eral's Department has been in its se
lection of labor unavailable for active
doty for this agricultural service.
Those who will conduct this work are
interned alien enemy prisoners, draft
ed men disqualified for oversea serv
ice, conscientious objectors and mili
tary prisoners. In addition, enlisted
men physically unsuited for duty over
seas or partially disabled will prefer
ably be assigned for this agricultural
service. The Quartermaster General's
Department believes that after a few
months of outdoor work many of
these men will so improve physically
that they will become fit for transfer
to fighting units.
In addition, the Conservation and
Reclamation Division will have au
thority to operate laundries and pro
vide a uniform method of turning
over clothing, shoes and articles of
equipment by unfit supply otllcers to
the Conservation, and Reclamation
Service for repair, dry cleaning, or
Not only is the Army keeping step
with the times, but it is blazing the
trail for conservation and reclama
tion of our potential resources. The
thoroughness evinced by the Quarter
master's Corps in this new work will
out-German the much boasted German
efficiency. The boys at the front, and
at camps and cantonments in this
country, are setting a pace in conser
vation which those at home must
strive mightily to equal. In this work
there must be no dividing line be
tween our Army and our civilian po
pulations. The foundation of demo
cracy lies in the individual initiative
of its people and their willingness
to serve the Interests of the Nation
with complete self-effacement. In a
time of emergency, the civilian pop
ulation as well as the army, must
yield to discipline. Together we must
work in solving the food problem and
the other problems of conservation
and reclamation. In doing so, we will
ve demonstrated the steadfastness
or our faith and our ability to defend
ourselves without leing Kulturized
by the Prussian "All-Highest."
New liana Wharf To
Be All Of Concrete
At next week's meeting of the har
bor board, authorization is to be given
to complete plans for the newXharf
at Hana on the Island tft MXul with
the purpose of having a staft made on
the work of building the wharf at the
earliest possible moment. Prelimin
ary work has been completed and a
report of Superintendent of Public
Works Lyman II. Bigelow and Willi
am D'Esmond, engineer of the harbor
board, who have just returned from a
trip to Maul, will show that materials
needed are fairly close at band and
other conditions for making an early
beginning on the wharf have been
found to be favorable.
The new wharf will nestle beneath
the big cliff that overlooks the har
bor. The location has been so chosen
that the cliff will shelter the pier
from the prevailing winds. In accord
ance with the policy that has been
laid down by the harbor board of
making all new construction of per
manent character, the Hana wharf Is
to be of reinforced concrete. It Is to

wide with a rock filled approach some
three hundred feet long by twenty
five feet wide. This will be built first
so that it will not be necessary to
make use of any floating equipment
in the construction of the pier. Rail
tracks connecting with lines of the
plantation railways will run out on
the new pier. One or me nrsi
in connection with the project will lie
the blasting away of a portion of the
cliff to provide for a roadway that will
run to the pier.
The sum of $75,000 appropriated
for the new wharf has been made

Ayres, the Poet, is Kne, Is the news

the palms are still nodding
to greet him,

what sounds break on your
What is the life you're leading in that

What subtle things of beauty are
being revealed to you?
Well can my soul divine the sphere
where you're abiding:
A region of song and music, and
poesy and art,
There, with kindred spirits, to enjoy
the things long dreamed of,
Whilst trudging it and drudging it
along earth's thorny path.

And nil of her gladdening beauty

When the spell of the Muse was

You were nearer then to the gods,
for through utter love of

bliss they fully know!
Exquisite the thougths you gave us
of plants and flowers,
The mystic, haunting loveliness of
our verdurous tropic isles:
The gladness of all Nature was echo

And you wove it into fragrant leis

THE FIRST BISHOP OF
THE MOTHER CHURCH
By Rev. J. Charles Villiers,
(Church of the Good Shepherd.)
Thursday of the present week is
the day known as the day of "St.
James, the Apostle," the day set apart
by the Church to the memory and
honor of that great saint. While we
know that this day is sacred to the
memory of S. James, the son of Zebe
dee, and the brother of the Apostle
John, it is an interesting fact that
there was more than one apostle by
the name of James. A second apos
tle of the name was James, the son
of Alpheus. He was known as "James,
the Less," or as "James, the little,
probably on account of the smallness
of his stature, in contrast with that
of James the son of Zebedee.
But there is still a third James who,
according to S. Paul, in his epistle to
the Galatians, was known to and ac
cepted by the early church as an apos
tle, although he was not one of the
original twelve apostles called, set
apart, and commissioned to their
sacred olhce by our Lord, himself, in
the last days of his flesh. This third
James is the one known to us, through
a description of him by St. Paul, in
his epistle to the Galatians, as: "The
brother of our Lord." Other men al
so, not of the original twelve apostles,
were known and accepted as Apos
tles by the primitive church.
From this it follows that whatever
there was of uniqueness and separate
ness in the aposolic office of the orig
inal twelve apostles it was certainly
understood by the primitive church
that the apostolic office was not ex
hausted in them. S. Paul, In his state
ment of facts about his own call and
separation to the apostolic office, by
the grace of God, in Jesus Christ,
left no doubt on the mind of the
church of his rightful claim to be tec
ognized as an apostle. And book
after book in the New Testament dis
closes that the primitive church had
no hesitation in conceding the title
of "Apostle" to other men who by
their apostolic spirit and labors in
the church, showed themselves to be
in the true line of "Apostolical suc
cession." St. James, the Just, was a
man of this class, we may be sure,
or he would not have been chosen as
the chief minister of the mother
Church. That he was chosen, ordain
ed, consecrated, as the first Bishop
of the mother Church at Jerusalem
is more than an interesting fact, it
There are various traditions about
St. James,' call to the sacred office.
Not the least interesting of these Is
one which says that when the choice
of Bishop for the mother Church was
to be made, the apostles who were
regarded by the Church as the men
most eligible were the three who had
been with Jesus on the Mount of
Transfiguration. These were Peter,
and the two brothers James ana
John. However, none of the three
contended for the honor, for they all
belived that in accordance with the
Divine will and purpose their work
for the Church lay "in the regions
beyond." But they agreed that, with
the consent of the Church, James, the
Just, should be chosen as tho first
Bishop of the mother Church. What
ever is the fact as to this tradition,
it is incontestable that James did
become the first Bishop of Jerusalem,
and is known as such to history. It
is said that "his episcopal chair was
still shown in the days of Eusebius."
James, the Bishop- of Jerusalem,
was the writer of the epistle which
bears his name. This epistle is con
spicuous, not as a text-book of the
ology, but rather as a manual of re
ligion. It has been charged against
it that it was written by one who had
never' been emancipated from the
Jewish, or Mosaic law, but there is no
fair ground for such an assertain. It
is one of the seven epistles we know
as "General" or "Catholic" epistles,
and was written to Christian Jews
scattered abroad by the dispersion,
assumes their knowledge and accept
ance of the great fundamentals of the
Christian faith, and goes on to show
what should be the ai mand purpose,
the tone and temper, of those who
have accepted that faith as the guid
ing principle life. Religion and theo
logy, It says, in effect, are not identi
cal, nor can religion find its full and
complete expression in speech, in
sentiment, or in emotion. It has two
methods of expression, one of which
is inward, and the other outward.
Both methods must be observed and
carried out, or there will be failure
at some vital point, for which fail
ure we shall be likely to offer some
lame excuse. There are some people
who seem to look upon religion as if
it were whtfernor or Mof, self-denial,
and of grift and self denial are nr.ugh
self-dots in the house of victory."
sum total of all h
are other peo.,.,
religion as wholly a matter of neigh
borly, philanthropic' seni.'e. St.
James' doctrine is that of a man of
broad, common-sense. He teaches
that both must be observed and
practiced In combination. Personal
moral purity is as much a part of the
Christian religion as is philanthropic
service, but philanthropic service is
as much a part of religion as is per
sonal moral purity. He does not be
little the Gospel by his construction
of it. Rather does he exalt it by show
ing thnt the righteousness which Is
of the Christian faith is not an
abrogation of the moral law, but a
nobler conception; interpretation and
fulfilment of It. "Men do not gather
grapes of thorns or figs of thistles."
"Pure religion and undefiled before
God and the Father is this; To visit
the fatherless and widows in their
affliction, and to keep himself un
spotted from the world."

FARM WORK DELAYED
FOR LACK OF LABOR
Scarcity of labor in the Haiku dis
trict at present Is likely to cause
some loss to farmers unless the
weather becomes drier than it has
been in the past few weeks. The
harvesting of the big pineapple crop
is so imperative that every bit of
labor available is devoted to this one
task, with the result that new plant
ings are badly behind in cultivation
and other farm work is at a stand
still. The Haiku ranch has several hun
dred acres "of corn which has been
cut and shocked, but which cannot
be further taken care of until the
pineapple rush is over, which will
not be for several weeks yet.
