War Work In France
Y. M. C. A. Of Territory Plans To
Send 5 Men A Month. Men From
37 To 45 But Thysically Barred
As Soldiers Are Kind Sought
(Special to Maui News.)
HONOM'IiU, October 31 President
A. F. Clri flit li of Onlm College, speak
ing at a lunclieon of the Honolulu Ad
Club referred to the pressing need
for middle-aged men for work in
Franee on behalf of the Y. M. C. A.,
presenting an opportunity of service
lo men whose qualifications unfit them
for general military service, but who
are comparatively physically fit in
all other respects.
"AVe need most urgently" said Mr.
Griffiths, "the services of 350 men
who are able to drive and repair auto
mobiles. need men for education
al and religious .secretarial work and
for many other purposes, and we
particularly need men who will main
tain the high standard already set by
the Y. M. I'. A, in its dealings with
cur fighters: men of high p'-rsonal
character, of ability and administra
tive power. The Y. M. C. A., already
has sent 7.023 men and women over
seas and to work in the camps at
home. Of those who are now ready
to sail 4,622 are booked for the Am
erican forces in France, 547 will go
to England, and fifteen to Italy where
we already have 201 trained secre
taries at work. With the poilus in
Fiance we have 367 secretaries;
there are 62 in Russia, 3 in Africa,
37 in China, 6 in Egypt, 3 in India,
and 20 with the Portuguese Expedi
"It is a man's size job" he continu
ed. "A "Y" worker must go where
he is sent, do what he is told and be
ready for any emergency. We can
pay no regular salaries, but we are
able to give monthly allowances which
are sufficient, and we back up the
men by making allowances to their
wives and families at home. The
work is limited to men between the
ages of 37 and 45 years, who are un
fit for general military work, and its
only reward is a consciousness of
work well done In the noblest cause
mankind has ever seen. Honolulu
and the other islands are asked to
furnish a quota of ot least 5 men
monthly", president Griffith conclud
ed. We carried the 1918 objectives
wheat, meat, fat and sugar and now
we are settling down to a steady push
all along the line.
If we save sugar by spoonfuls we
can send it by shipfuls to "our boys."
Stores Must Post Cost
And Selling Prices
Effective November 1st, all retail grocers are required to post conspi
cuously in their stores a sign not less than three feet broad by five feet
high which shall read substantially as follows:
OUR TODAY'S PRICES.
Published by Order of the U. S. Food Administration.
Conunodity Our Cost Our Selling Price.
Wheat Flour, 10-lb. bag
Wheat Flour, 49-lb. bag
Barley Flour, 10-lb. bag
Victory Flour, 10-lb. bag
Corn M.eal, 10 bag
Sugar, all kinds . . . .'.
Potatoes (insert grade)
Canned Tomatoes, standard puree 2 VSe
Canned Corn, Western
Canned Peas, indicate grade listing best seller
Canned Salmon, pink, No, 1, can
Evaporated Milk, 16-oz. can
Butter, indicate grade listing your best seller
Eggs, indicate grade listing your best Beller
Lard Substitutes, your best seller
Bacon, by the side, standard grade
Ham, standard raw whole
2 varieties of fresh vegetables
2 varieties of fresh fruit
Complaints concerning these prices may be filed in writing with J. F.
Child at Castle & Cooke Bldg., Fort St., Honolulu.
The retail grocer is required to base his cost price as displayed above
on the actual invoice cost of the merchandise plus any freight or cartage
into his store. He is permitted to add no other charges whatever against
this cost. Base the cost price on one can or one package rather than a
dozen. For example: if evaporated milk costs $6.25 put the cost price in
at 13 cents.
If a dealer does not carry the size or grade indicated in the above list,
he Is permitted to substitute the size or grade which he does carry and
lor which he has the most demand.
The grocer also is permitted, if he desires, to add a line at the bot
tom of the bulletin reading as follows: "Our cost of doing business is 'A
based on the selling price." Any dealer displaying such a line is required
before doing so to mail a statement to his city or county food administra
tor analyzing his cost.
Except for designating the size and requiring that the lettering on the
rign be easily readable, the Food Administration does not undertake to
specify the exact method of preparing the sign. For example, a strip of
36 " wrapping paper plainly lettered with a piece of crayon or a marking
pot will meet with the approval of the Administration. Some dealers are
planning to Use bulletins similar to those displayed in front of cafeterias
and restaurants, the advantage of these being that changes can be quickly
mtide without having lo rewrite the sign. Others will use blackbo.irds.
It is likely that the commodities listed will be changed from tinte to
time and therefore it is suggested that at present dealers do not have ex
pensive permanent signs made.
As noted above every dealer is required to post his cost and selling
price on two varitles of fresh fruit. The Food Administration permits the
dealer to choose his own fruit and vegetables and to change the variety or
grade each day if desir d. He can make the change any time during the
day if he runs out, but not otherwise.
While realizing that this is an important move and thai it will cause
ome inconvenience to the trai'e, ihe plan has been worked out in . very
thorough manner and the net result we believe will be beneficial to the
trade as well as to the public, "'he retail grocery business in our opinion
can stand the light of day, although some readjustments may be neces
sary. The final result we believe wiil be to inspire greater confidence in
the grocery business among customers.
These Regulation apply throughout the entire Territory of Hawaii.
J. F. CHH.!),
United States Food Administrator for Hawaii.
