Every Service Man
To Get Xmas Letter
Rotary Club Has Commendable Plan
Everybody Asked To Help
Sunday, November 10 To Be "Let
tcr Writing Day"
The following letter sent out by the
Rotary Club, of Honolulu to residents
of Maul explains a plan by which It
Is hoped that every man from the Is
lands In any branch of the govern
ment military service will receive at
least one Christmas letter. Since It
has been officially announced that it
will be impossible for ChriBtmas pack
ages to be sent over-seas to soldiers
from Hawaii this year the Importance
of the letters is evident.
The letter follows:
"It Is the most evident fact before
us at the present time that the para
mount Important business of every
man, woman and child of this com
munity and nation is to win this world
war. No effort must be spared and
no opportunity for help omitted, and
it Is taken for granted that any sug
gestions pointing out methods of as
sistance are welcome.
"There is an opportunity now open
to every person able to read and write
to render valuable assistance by writ
ing encouraging letters to the men on
the firing line, in the camps in Bel
gium and France and on board the
ships of the Navy.
"Letters can readily be sent with a
minimum of effort where presents or
other remembrances to indicate that
we are with them In soul are not
"There Is nothing a man far from
home appreciates more than a per
sonal letter, and a little Imagination
will indicate how much more will a
letter be a source of (welcomed) en
couragement In the trying and danger
ous existence of troops in campaign.
"It haB, therefore been proposed that
a campaign be vigorously pursued
through tha newspapers and civic or
ganizations to ask all dwellers in this
community to write a Christmas let
ter to every known Individual officer,
soldier and sailor from the Territory
of Hawaii, now in service away from
"The question has come before the
Rotary Club and a committee appoint
ed to take steps to this end. The
newspapers have been asked to re
quest all persons knowing the address
of any soldier (that is, especially, the
number of his company, the number
of his regiment, the arm of Bervice
and the division of which the regiment
is a part and the camp, if in the Unit
ed States; the corresponding infor
mation if in the staff corps, or the ship
if in the Navy), to forward this ad
dress by mail to the Secretary of the
Chamber of Commerce, Mr. Raymond
C. Drown, P. O. Box 242, Honolulu.
It will be noted that the lists previ
ously published have not contained
service addresses. Letters sent with
out proper address will not be deliver
ed. These names and addresses will
be collected and published in the local
"The Rotary Club committee feels
that this is a splendid opportunity to
help keep the spirits of the victorious
Allies up to the top notch and requests
you to co-operate through the appoint
ment of a' liye. vigorous committee or
otherwise, and bring the matter be
fore your organization at the first op
portunity. "The question of the designation of
a special letter writing and mailing
day that letters will reach all men be
fore December 25th will be taken up
with the Governor and he will be ask
ed to appoint Sunday, November 10th,
1918, as a special letter writing day
to the soldiers and sailors of the Ha
waiian Islands. This is the date of
mailing with assurance of Christmas

Navy Men Congratulated
In Going Far Over Top
On many of the vessels of the Unit
ed States navy and in many shore
stations, every officers and enlisted
man is reported to have subscribed for
the 4th Liberty Loan. This was the
case at the Lahalna radio station of
the navy. That the navy certainly
made a record is evidenced by a
message of congratulation sent out
from Washington on Monday night to
all the naval stations in the country.
It was received by the naval radio
station at Lahaln and is s follows:
"To All Naval Radio Stations:
"The navy has subscribed more
than $40,000,000 to the 4th Liberty
Loan. This is 8,000,000 more than
the Navy subscribed in the 1st, 2nd,
and 3rd Liberty Loans combined, and
$15,000,000 in excess of our quota.
"This will go down in history as
one of the Navy's greatest victories.
To the entire service and to every in
dividual officer and man I extend my
profound appreciation for the unsel
fish efforts which made this glorious
"As the American Navy went over,
so the Huns will surely go under. The
Navy's triumph is measured not only
by the millions that we mobilized but
even more by tlte priceless example
of our own readiness to go the limit.
America puts the Liberty Loan across
by matching the Navy. No greater
tribute cculd be paid to the valor and
of the men of the American navy.

Keeping Our Boys
Out Of Trouble
Is Important Work
The War Camp Community Service,
the soldier's friend and counsellor, Is
the result of an appeal made by the
Commission on Training Camp Act
ivities to the Recreation Association
of America. It has become the offi
cial information lureau and rallying
point of the man on leave from his
cantonment, and acts as a guide, phil
osopher and friend to him amid the
temptations of the large cities ad
jacent to his camp, or the mushroom
towns that spring up wherever large
bodies of men happened to be quarter
ed. The soldier on leave has ever been
regarded a-i the lfitimate prey of the
vleiou!ielement of a city.. He has his
pay; the time is his own and he is
looking for amusement and excite
ment. The War Camp Community
Service meets him as he arrives in
town: tells him where to sleep: gives
him free cards to clubs, and free
tickets to theaters; it secures him in
vitations to private houses where ho
is made to feel that the uniform is
looked upon with respect and real
liking; it invests him with the free
dom of the city during his stay, and,
owing to its benpficf-nt watchfulness,
he may go back to his duties hardly
less poor in purse and certainly no
less better 1n health than when he
came in from camp.
The National Wnr Wlork Organiza
tion in its coming drive for funds, has
allotted $15,000,000 to the War Camp
Community Service for its next year's
budget. Its work will continue long
after peace has come to the world,
for the boys have to be brought home
and there will be most urgent need
for its services among the victory
AND IN GERMANY
Shortly before the war started in
1914, a German-born woman who had
married an Italian in Panama, went to
Germany for a visit to her father and
mother, intending to stay for a few
months. When, in August of that
year the groat conflict dropped on the
World like a bomb, rhe realized that
she would have trouble in getting back
to her husband in Panama, but im
mediately took steps toward getting
out of Germany.
She was soon disillusioned as to the
possibility of doing this, and was "re
quested" (a request in Germany Is
equivalent to a command here) to en
roll herself as a Red Cross nurse for
the period of a year, she having been
a nurse before her marriage. She
pleaded that her husband needed her,
that her home was the place she
most wanted to be, but nothing she
could say, even though she was really
no longer a German subject, being
married to an Italian, made any dif
ference. She served the year and
felt herself fortunate to bo allowed to
At the border her luggage was in
spected and thoroughly searched, and
every bit of linen, copper, brass, pew
ter, aluminum and other metals, etc.
was taken from her. She was given
a receipt, which even she realized to
That is one experience, and a very
mild one at that, of the methods taken
by Germany. Uncle Sam does not
"grab" our possesions. He asks our
help, and we are allowed to follow
our consciences in what we give. And
now comes the Red Cross Shop,
through which we may dispose of
those odds and ends that we may
have considered of no value. But let
the Rod Cross Shop have something
to say as to that. They can tell you
immediately whether or not the
things you have stored away us "too
good to throw away" yet which you
have never since found a use for are
saleable. This is a change from be
ing asked to dig down into your pock
ets, but it will be as real a help just
the same. For the Red Cross will
take your old clothing, furniture, old
papers, metals, old shoes, etc., etc.
and dispose of them to someone who
can use them, and the money receiv
ed will be turned in to the Red Cross
to further their work abroad amongst
We all know what the Red Cross is
doing. How many lives it has saved
by having the proper supplies and ap
pliances at hand to care for the
wounded soldiers; how many children
have been saved in France and Bel
gum; how countless thousands have
been saved from starvation and want.
It is, In fact, standing right behind
our soldiers and those of our Allies
and enabling them to carry on the
war, besides taking care of All thee
poor unfortunates back of the ines
Who supports th Red Cross ?
Why the people. People all one:
the world, and few are so helpless as
to be unable to do their share. The
Red Cross could not exist without the
people back of it, am' that means
As soon as the lied Cross Shop
opens in Wailuku which it is expect
ed will be the first oT November, in
the old Bailey building, corner if
High and Main streets, you urn in
vited to come in and see it. You
should feel yourself identified with
this new venture, for it Is yours.
When you see what is being done for
our glorious Red Cross you won't
need to be asked to help your patri
atism will speak up and volunteer,
just as real Americans have always
done when their country called.
