The Children'! War Work
For many months we have all been
talking nbout "Helping to Win the
War." Now the war Is won and it is
nil over. The men of Germany have
signed the terms of armistice, and
have promised many thinps to the
Allies. The Germans surrendered
nearly all their puns, and a great
many submarines, also other things
used during the war. We take more
of Germany's thnpa because s-ho Is
not a country to be trusted. If she
has enough ammuniiion to cany on
the war, she is liable to do it, and
make more trouble for herself and the
Although the "War Is Over" it does
not mean that we do not have to buy
any more thrift stamps or to keep on
with our lied Cross work. We must
do these things just the snme. Ilefore
the war was ended we said we bought
thrift stamps to supply our soldiers
with food, ammunition, gas masks,
and such things. But now we have to
help the soldiers and orphans of
France, Belgium, and even Germany
with food. America has to build up
the roads, farms, and gardens that
have been destroyed by the" fighting.
The poor Belgian orphans are starv
ing and if we buy thrift stamps and
save food we shall be able to help
If we saw a poor German child
Buffering from hunger, we would pity
him. This is how America feels to
ward Germany. But the Kaiser is
a cruel, war-like man. He made his
fellow-countrymen destroy our ships,
and ambulances, and Red Cross hos
pitals, and he and his peorle sent thf
submarines into our waters to sink
our ships. This was not fair. They
did not know what pity real'y is.
The people of Germany did not
known that the Kaiser was fooling
them and telling false things to them
to make them think they were going
to have victory. Now they are begin
ning to know and find out the truth.
They have turned against the Kaisei
himself. The Kaiser is allowed to re
main in Holland for a short time but
he is going to be tried. His son was
phot by one of his own people !ust as
he was entering Holland. The An
erican soldiers know what was righ
and this gave them strength and cour
age. The school children are helping a
great deal by buying "all the beans
out of the Kaiser's bag" and putting
them into the U. S. bag.
There is a great task before Uncle
Sam and we will all gladly do our bit

Thrift Stamps and War Saving Stamps
To bring this war to a close the
United States needs especially men
We cannot fight because we are too
young but we can help win the war
by loaning our money to the govern
ment. There are over one million five-hundred
thousand of our men in France.
The United States must supply them
with food, clothing, guns, and many
other things. To do this the govern
ment must spend larger amounts of
money. It must build warships, sub
marines, airships and make many oth
er kinds of machines and buy amiuu
We can help raise the mor.ey to
win the war by buying thrift stamps
and war saving stamps. The thrift
stamps cost twenty-five cents.
We must have sixteen Thrift Stamps
to change them into War Saving
Stamps. The war saving stamps bear
four percent interest. We can get
them from any postoffice, bank or
It is a good thing to buy thrift
stamps and war saving stamps be
cause we thus form the good h;(bit o'
saving. This is one of the best habits
we can form. It is especially good
to form while young.
Here in this country we enjoy better
living than my other country.
If the German Kaiser ruled over us
we would not have Democracy and
Freedom as we now have, instead, we
would be almost like slaves.
America is fight'ng so that .we and
our Allies may not be treated like
slaves under the Huns.
We can get money to buy stamps by
making gardens and selling the vege
WV can save money by not spend
ing it for candy or other unnecessary
things and this money can be used
to help both our country and our
selves. The small amount of
money we can save, will only be able
to get interest in this way.
Although one boy or girl can onlj
save a very little money each, yet if
all the boys and girls in our great
country would buy as many stamps as
they can, the amount of money raised
for this patriotic purpose would be a
very large amount, so boys and girls
let us each do the best we can to help
otir Uncle Sam in his fight 'or Right
and Justice. -

We should buy Thrift Stamps and
Liberty Bonds to lend the money to
the United States Treasury Depart
ment. The government Is going to
buy uniforms for the soldiers, also
submarines, muskets, destroyers,
aeroplanes, and many other uef't!
We must use rice flour and brown
flour instead of the white flour
We have a wheatless day, pcrkle.s
day, and meatless days, Monday and
Wednesday are wheatless days. Tues
day and Thursday are meatless days,
Saturday i3 a porHess day. On these
days we cannot cat wheat, meat, or
This war is a necessary war because
it teaches us to be patriotic and to
form the good habit of saving. We
are fighting for freedom. The Ger
mans want to destroy and the Allies
want to preserve. The Allies want to
win this war in nineteen hundred
nineteen But they will not stop fight
ing until Germany is crushed. We
are true American citizens so we
must lend ihe money to the govern
ment. We are saving nickles, dimes, and
quarters to buy Thrift Stamps, and
War Saving Stamps. We are helping
win this war by saving food, serving
the country, and raising gardens. We
work during the summer vacation to
earn money for Thrift Stamps. We
don't want Kaiser Wilhelm, the Em
peror of Germany, to rule the Allies.

How I Can Help The United States
It is a patriotic thing to do as the
Government asks us. It asks us to
help support the war by buying
stamps. No matter what nationality
we are, we should do what the Govern
ment asks us to do as long as we live
in American territory.
We should not waste our money in
buying unimportant things. If you
have the money to buy these things,
save it little by little and then when
you have enough money, buy Thrift
Stamps and War Saving Stamps.
There are also Liberty Bonds that
the Government asks people to buy,
but these cost larger sums of money
so we cannot buy them.
The Thrift Stamps are worth 25.
We should buy them because it will
help out the United States in getting
ships, aeroplanes, clcthing, guna, sup
plies and other useful things. This
will also form a good habit of saving
when we are young.
The War Saving Stamp.'; beai good
interest and we are doing our share
to help the United States.
When the soldiers at the front hear
that the children arc all trying to
help them they will bo encouraged and
fight harder when they know that
even we are helping the country.
Uncle Sam will return the money
and interest on January 1st, 1923. The
money will be useful then to us. It
will be about the time we wiK need
To gain the money for buying these
stamps we should work hard in mak
ing gardens and selling the vege
tables. Also there are many other places
to work, as in the canneries anc'. cane
fields where they need help because
many men are now taken as soldiers.
Helping in this way is also patriotic.
Mr. Hoover had said that every Am
erican citizen should have wbeatlesB,
meatless and a porkfess days. In do
ing these, they will save a large
amount of foodstuffs.
He has asked us to save and not to
waste. By making gardens, boys and
girls can help save food and at the
same time we can save a great deal of
space in the ships which are wanted
to carry food and soldiers to Euroe.
Our soldiers and sailors are risking
their lives for us, should not we do
all we can to help them?
Ah Sung Lum, Grade VII
Paia School, Oct. 24, 1918.
Why We Buy Thrift Stamps
The most interesting event during
these days is the war.
Ten thousand soldiers are leaving
for France every day. These soldiers
need food, clothing, shoes, hats, and
many other such things In order to
do this, every man, woman, and child
should buy bonds, or thrift and war
saving stamps. The government has
to buy "ammunition," gas masks, and
many other things to supply their
If we cannot earn money becauso
of going to school, we can get money
by doing these things:
Wo can save money given to us
to buy anything we want; we should
not go to moving pictures often; or
buy boxes of expensive or inexpensive
candies as presents for other people,
unless on special occasions, and we
should not buy useless things as toys.
Men can save a large sum of money
every month now because the saloons
arc closed, and there is no more of
the drinking and merrymaking in
which they spent their money so
foolishly. With the money which
they have saved from drinking, they
can buy a fifty dollar, one hundred
dollar, or three hundred dollar bond.
This money all goes to Uncle Sam.
It is the safest thing in the whole
world to spent your money on these
stamps. They are signed by the U.
S. Government. The money will be
returned to us when the war Is over.
This is just lending our money. In
times of the Revolutionary War, peo
ple were not sure if they lent their
money It would be returned or not.
But today we are sure of it.
Well, we must do all what we possi
bly can and help raise the great
amount of money our country so much

"Heh! You! You! Buy bonds to
clear the way!" Remember Belgium;
her men, women and children have
beTm killed, tortured, burnt and crush
ed by the terrible and hostile Huns.
They have been chained .and whipped,
and (are) were carried far, far away
from their homes. Now! Do you
know what became of them? So,
crush, crush Germany by buying
bonds, "Liberty Bonds."
Our Allies need ammunition, pro
visions and strong determination. W,e
should take it upon ourselves, each
and every loyal citizen of the United
States to buy bonds; bonds, bonds,
bonds as your country has ever called
you to share. If you don't buy bonds,
what are yen?
Our bojo who travel on their
stomach in "No Man's Land" are
fighting for you "Over There" simply
for freedom's sake and for demo
The Fourth Liberty Bond
Ladies and Gentlemen the Fourth
Liberty Loan drive opened Saturday,
Sept. 28, and will close Oct. 12. So
Uncle Sam wants some six billion
dollars in gold with which to pave the
road to Berlin.
Our own boys and our Allies can
never get there unless the gold is
supplied by You people of the United
States. American gold is the lubricant
that keeps the whole mighty War of
America and her Allies going forward,
the machine that Is like a gigantic
steam roller shall ultimately crush
Germany as it has crushed Bulgaria
under its enormous weight. The Kai
ser calls himself the all highest and
his war cry Germany over all, but our
answersis America for the world.
If the people of Germany prefer
their kind of Government let them
keep it. But they must not attempt
through blood and crime. We are
fighting so that from now on it will
be impossible for any government to
inflict itself upon weaker government
through force or military power. We
believe in peace but not in peace of
slavery. No man shall rule over us
unless we give him the power. We
may die but liberty will never die.
There never was a war like this in
all the world. We determine there
shall never be another. That is why
the people of all the Allied nations
are lending their money to hasten
the end. Will we answer as we an
swered before to our boys over there?
The Hawaiian Islands were asked
to make seven million dollars. Will
you help Uncle Sam and buy more
bonds? They have paid their debt of
honor. Have you paid yours? Or are
you a street corner Patriot? If you
ore not lending all you have and all
you are to back up your country is
something wrong. Today is iot too
late. But tomorrow may be. It is
your duty to yourself and your coun
try to buy more bonds. Buy more
bonds, Undo Sam wants more bonds.
The government calls upon every
loyal citizen to buy bonds to loan
money on security to help win the
Our soldiers and sailors are doing
their parts. Are you doing yours?
Buy more bonds, buy more bonds than
you even dreamed, buying.
