The war is over and the world has entered upon a new era It
will never be the same kind of world again. People who expect - nr
hope for things to drop back into their old pre-war order are doomed to
And it will be a better world than we have known. Never again
will autocracy rule. The great struggle of all times for individual
security and freedom has been finally won. It has been the triumph
But the millennium is not arrived. Human greed, rapacity, and
injustice have not disappeared from the earth. But the conscience of
the world has been awakened and the divine spirit of brotherhood and
justice are in the ascendence.
Things will not be the same as they were. Nor has the burden
been lifted. Rather has it been increased by a harvest of human
misery never before known. But the storm has passed and the sun
ot hope shines once more. The courage and devotion which triumphed
in the darkest hour now grids itself with renewed confidence for the
uisk of recoustruction.
The new era of promise has dawned. The struggle is not ended,
but the liberty of the world seems assured. The blood of our scared
dead has not been shed in vain.
ECONOMY IN GIVING
Dr. John R. Mott, Chairman of the National Executive Commit
tee in New York and Director General of the United War Work Cam
paign, whose drive for funds will be made between the 11th and 18th of
November, believes that great economies in the conduct of the work of
the seven societies will be effected as a result of the merger.
"Without doubt" he says, "the new co-operative arrangements
which will be made possible or facilitated by the United War Work
Campaign will insure great and most desirable economies in the conduct
of the work on behalf of the soldiers and sailors at home and overseas,
There is so much to do, the problems are so great, the time is so short,
and the cost in money fnd effort has become so large, that anything that
will result in eliminating unnecessary duplication of expenditures of
money and effort, as, for example, in the building program or the con
duct of the canteen will not be without its advantage. Coming together
and working in the common campaign will render it easier to bring abou'
the best understanding and practice in other matters not involving com
promise". Subscribers who give their money in the United War Work drive
will have the satisfaction of knowing that every penny of it will be used
in actual war welfare work, and that there will be no waste of any
kind, owing to a centralized control of the united funds of the seven or
ganizations. Although givers are allowed to indicate their preference
upon their pledge cards, the United War Work Drive is entirely uti
sectarian in character and the combined funds will benefit every race
and every creed engaged in the fight against the common foe of human
THE RED CROSS SHOP
For more than a year Maui has made an enviable record in her
support of the Red Cross work. But no phase of the work accom
p'ished stands out more brilliantly than does the Red Cross Shop which
opened to the public last Saturday.
And the gratifying feature of this latest achievement is the fact
that it is eminently a community achievement. The women who have
actively directed and handled the enterprise are of course entitled to
praise, for without their never failing enthusiasm backed by days of
the hardest kind of work, success would have been impossible.
But also success would have been impossible without the whole
hearted backing of people from every part of the Island. It was their
interest, their donations of the stock in trade, and their willingness to
do anything that was asked or suggested of them that was the chief
factor in making failure impossible.
Maui people have developed the co-operative idea in high degree,
but it was never applied to better advantage than in the creation of the
Maui Red Cross Shop.

Many of the touches of nature that
make the whole world kin were obser

to keep the tired saleswomen in good
spirits. One of them rather lost her

It was a glorious night.
Many persons got little sleep bun-

An ad in the special Victory edition
of the Daily Wireless bought automo
biles from all sections or central Maui
for a big auto paradij in the afteruoon.
Headed by the Maui Band in a big
truck with trailer, the parade started
from the court house at 2 o'clock
and ran to Paia and return. There
were between 140 and 150 machines
in the procession at the start, though
only about 130 made the entire trip.
The entire celebration was taken
part in with equal fervor by people
of every nationality, but on Monday
evening the Japanese of V;alluku had
a special demonstration of their own
in form of a lantern parade. This was
one of the prettiest parades ever
held in Wailuku, with hundreds of
Japanese men, women and children
in line all carrying gay paper lan

up Main street they sang, besides
their own national airs, "ine cuar-

A NEW VOLUME OF VERSE
"War Sonnets" is the title of an un
usually attractive little volume pro
duced by Gurry's Limited oi rionu
lulu. It consists of short verses by
Benjamin Collins Woodbury, and has
a distinctive flavor throughout. Dr.
Woodbury, who is a Honolulu physi
cian, is undoubtedly a master of this
particular form of verse. His new
volume will undoubtedly receive a
warm welcome from lovers of poetry,
and there are lew wno win nui nV

clean-cut gems it contains.
Th fnliowine is a good example of
Dr. Woodbury's style:
Our country is the world, and day and
America in loyalty to thee,
To those at home and those across
Wherever war has left its awful blight
W,here'er thy sons 'neath freedom's
Our hearts we pledge to man's
Our souls we pledge to God's
Till right has triumphed o'er inglori
Where liberty is not, to make men
Our lives we give, our fortunes;
Thy legions flung to lands beyend the

and nothing gives us greater pleasure
than bringing our loved ones a box of
candy, of which we are very fond.
