(United War Work Editorial)
Probably not even when, the war
shall have come to an end with the
entry of the Allied armies into Ber
lin, will the tongue of the Hun propa
gandist be stilled.
Rumors widely circulated over the
mainland have reached here and have
promptly been set at rest by the
energetic action of Harold Rice, the
well-known rancher of Maui and Or
ganizer of the United War Work
Campaign for the territory.
The stories are to the effect that
there will be little need to support
the work of the seven organizations
participating in the drive as peace
will be signed at no distant date, and
the need for their service will be over.
It is pointed out by the Hun agents
that these organizations are asking
for the provision of their budgets for
the whole of next year, and that the
money, if subscribed by the generous
heart of America, will be largely wast
ed by the cessation of war work ac
tivities. Upon hearing these rumors, Mr.
Rice immediately cabled Lyman H.
Pierce, Campaign Director of the
Western Military District for an au
thoritative statement upon the mat
ter, and has received through him,
from Dr. John R. Mott, the Director
General of the National Committee of
New York, the following night letter:
"Our whole organizatio is united in
the conviction that the war activities
of the seven organizations must con
tinue to be pressed with full and in
creasing vigor, and that, whenever
peace comes it will be followed by a
long period of demobilization. Mili
tary authorities state it will take
fifteen months to bring home the
Canadian armies, and eighteen months
for the Australians and New Zealand
ers. All military authorities with
whom I have consulted, insist that it
will require over twelve months after
peace is declared to bring our Amer
ican armies home.
"This demobilization period will
present great need for our work and
by far our greatest opportunity. 1 here
fore there should be no hesitation or
change in any of our campaign plans,
except, if possible, a fifty per cent
"Thus" says Harold Rice, "is an
other German plot discovered. It is
up to every real American to get be
hind this war work campaign, for it
is very obvious that, after the terms
of peace have been signed and the
war is over, there will still be millions
of men to be cared for. The need
for the work of the seven great or
ganizations will be even greater, be
cause there will not be the daily
wastage of man-power. From the
coffee and doughnuts of the Salvation
Army, right down to the information
bureaus run by the War Camp Com
munity Service, there will still be the
same need for incessant activity, and,
personally, I do not believe for a mo
ment that if peace should happily
come before the end of this year,
there will be any chance for a let-up
In the war welfare work much be
fore the summer of 1920. Wo have
got to put this thing through, and so
continue to nail these German lies to

Krauss Will Study
Cassava On Maialand
Flans are being made for sending
F. G. Krauss, in charge of the federal
experiment station's sub-station on
Maui, to the mainland to secure ex
haustive dala on the cultivation, har
vesting and marketing of cassava,
which it is believed can be grown on
an extensive scale in Hawaii and us
ed as a substitute for wheat flour.
A number of residents of .Maui. In
cluding Harold Rice, are interested in
the project, and sulliclent money has
been raised by subscription to pay Mr.
Krauss' expenses. Yvhilo be is away,
the federal experiment station will
continue to pay his salary.

that the Matson freighter Hyades has
been diverted by the U. S. shipping

BOAT AND POI LOST
Jimmy Crane of Pukoo, Molokai, Is
in the city on a short business visit
and, as usual, brings with him a story
of a wreck on the Lonely Isle. He
arrived here in the Mikahala on Fri
It seems to bo his fate that every
time he comes over from Molokai on
an Inter-Island steamer the vessel
loses a boat. Off Pukoo last Thursday
the Mikahala sent a boat with a load
of poi ashore. The sea was unusually
choppy and the crew was a green one.
Just before the boat could get in
quiet water a big wave turned it over.
The crew made their escape ashore,
unharmed ,btit let the boat go to
wreck on the rocks. Boat and poi
cargo were a complete loss. Advertiser.

Wilson Tells Germany
Where Allies Stand
WASHINGTON, November 5 Secretary Lansing made public
Wilson's note to Germany saying Allies had answered his inquiry say
ing they are willing to accept his peace program of January 8, and as
outlined in subsequent addresses, and are willing to" make peace with
Germany on those terms, except as to clause two relating to the free
dom of the seas, which they say is open to various interpretations, some
ot which they cannot accept. They will reserve complete freedom on
this subject when they enter negotiations. He also understands that
"reparation" means that Germany will make compensation for all dam
age done to civilian population in invaded countries.
The President has instructed Switzerland to notify Germany that
the United Slates and Allies have authorized Marshal Foch to receive
properly accredited representatives of the German government and to
communicate to them Allies' terms for an armi.-tiee. President Wilson
