of the grand jury har been at work

win. Recommend Impeachment
This committee, in its report, found
that the supervisors have been con
ducting the county's affairs In "an ex
tremely careless and slipchop manner
and have expended public funds reck
lessly and without caution."
In its report, this committee also
recommended that impeachment pro
ceedings bo instituted against the en

The total resources of the United
States are estimated at about $250,
000,000,000; our annual earnings are
estimated at about $50,000,000,000.
Our national debt, including the third
liberty loan, may be put around $12,
(100,000,000. Before the war our Government was
spending about $1,000,000,000 a. year.
When the war is ended, Interest
charges, less the Interest collected
from our loans to our allies, Govern
ment insurance expenses, and other
necessary expenditures growing out
of the war may conservatively be es
timated at something like $1,000,000,-
000. We are confronted, therefore,
when peace comes, with raising only
a couple of billions a year revenue,
slight task for a Nation of such trem
endous wealth, capacity and resources.
The resources of Germany before
the war were estimated to be $80,000,-
000,000. The annual expenditures
then, of the Imperial Government were
about $800,000,000. Her debt now Is
$30,000,000,000, and her resources and
man power have been severely Im
paired. After the war she Is con
fronted with additional expenditures
growing out of the war totaling some
The interest of her war debt, eves
if the debt grows no larger, will be
about $l,.r)00.000,000. Although she
is niggardly in her pensions to pri
vate soldiers and their families, $1.-
000,000,000 n year would hardly sur-
fice to pay even small pensions.
The German Government has drain
ed the German people of their gold
even their jewels and heirlooms, and
yet the Imperial Rank of Germany
now has but little over $500,000,000 of
gold in its vaults. The United States
has made no special effort to obtain
gold, has made no call upon the peo
ple for the precious metal, and yet to
day has in its Treasury vaults prac
tically $2,500,000,000 of gold coin and
bullion. Retail Grocers' Advocate,

would necessitate removal of tbe reg
istrant from his place of residence,
and r-uch removal would, in the judg
ment of the board, cause unusual
hardship to the registrant or his fam
ily, or when such change of employ
ment would necessitate the night
employment of women under circum
stances deemed by the board unsuit
able for such employments of women,
boards are authorizes to consider any
and all of such ciroumstances as rea
sonable excuses for the registrant to
continue in such non-productive em
ployment. Employments Classified
The class of employments affected
bv the net nre:
First Persons engaged in the
nerving of food nnd drink, or either,
in public places, Including social
clubs. However, this does not in
clude managers or clerks, cooks, or
other employees, unless such are en
gaged in the service of lood and
drink, or either.
Second Passenger elevator oper
ators and attendants: and doormen,
footmen, carriage openers, and other
attendants in clubs, hotels, stores, de
partment houses, office building and
bath-houses. As to the words "other
attendants", they are held to Include
such as bellboys and porters. How
ever, if porters aro engaged in heavy
work they co not come witnin tne
Third Persons, including ushers
nnd other attendants engaged and oc
cupied in and in connection with
mimes, snorts and amusements; ac
tual performers, however, in legitim

Fifth Sales clerks and other clerks
employed In stores and other mercan
tile establishments. Tnis, nowever,
does not include store executives
managers, superintendents or heads
of such departments as accounting
financial, advertising, credit purchas

clude registered pharmacists employ
ed in wholesale or retail drug stores
or establishments, nor traveling sales
men, buyers, delivery drivers, electr
icians. engineers, carpet layers, up
holsterers, nor any employee doing
heavy work outside the usual duties
Methods Of Procedure Of
In discussing this regulation, the
local board of Maui has decided that
it will make an examination of all the
o-uestionaires of the registrants re
maining in the county, and from such
quest ionaires attempt to ascertain
just who the registrants are who are
at the present time engaged in non
productive employments, within the
meaning of the act. However, In
view of the fact that no doubt many
of the registrants have changed their
occunation since registering, ana
further that in many instances
would not be possible to ascertain the
true status of the registrant fronf the
information given in the quest ionaire
the local board feels that It will have
to depend largely for its information
on the citizens of the county, who aro
asked to report to the board any case
that may come to their knowledge
wherein a registrant Is idle or Is fol
lowin.g non productive employment
within the meaning of the act. All
such coninuinl',ations so made to the
local board will rc considered co

Having a Good Time
What constitutes recreation de
pends, of course, on the point of view.
Here is that of a certain small citi
zen in a school for dependent chil
dren. He wrote to his father thus:
"We are having a good time here
now. Mr. Jones broke his leg and
can't work. We went on a picnic and
it rained nnd we all got wet. Many
children here are sick with mumps.
Mr. Smith fell off of the wagon and
broke his ribs, but he can work a lit

well whipt us boys with a buggy whip
because we threw sand in his machine
and made black and blue marks on
It. Harry cut his finger badly. We
are all very happy." Everybody's
