Washington. D. C, .Jan. IS At
the input ing of flic Navy Lraguc
held yesterday in the Southern
Building, Judgu Sidney Hallou, of
llonninlu, discussed universal mili
tary training as a pre-requisite to
universal military serviee in the
'"Military service without military
training is criminal it is little
short uf murder," declared Judge
Ballon. "It is true that wo have
ultimately won all of our war.,"
he ndded, "hut it has been only af
ter humiliating disasters have fallen
upon the untrained armies, recruit
ed at the last minute that we have
sent iuto the field. The fact that
we have always won our wars has
clouded the general understanding
as to our military prowess. We will
be compelled to suffer a national
calamity to fully appreciate the
needs of cflicient lighting machines.
bth on sea and on land. The ob
taining of such adequate protectors?
can only le accomplished by an up
rooting of our national traditions."
Difficulties of Mobilization
Judge Ballou pointed out the
difliculties attendant upon the mobi
lization of United States troops along
the Mexican border. He laid stress
upon the difficulty of securing men
''The history of the United States
shows that the National Guard ami
the volunteer system always has
broken down after the first burst of
patriotism," he said. Judge Bal
lon went on to cite ea.-es where na
tions that have d: ntiuueil mili
tary training have fallen, taking
Greece and Home as examples.
He pointed out that South Ameri
can countries, notably Argentina,
are forging ahead of the United
States in military preparedness. He
urg'd the adoption of a system,
proved to be good, whereby this
country may better prepare both on
land ami on sea.
"That song, supposed to come
from a mother, "I Didn't Baise My
Boy to Be a Soldier.' " said Judge
Ballou. "is correct after all. It is
not the duty of a mother to make
her boy a soldier. All she need do
i get him over his attacks of mumps
and measles, and Uncle Sam will
raise him to be a soldier."
"Japanese are very grateful for
the attitude of the United States,"
says Y. Sngn in an editorial in the
Nippu Jiji. "We sympathize
with the United ' States and hope
that the change of position from
neutrality to a belligerent nation
will result in nn enrly peace for the
nations of the world.
"War will end sooner if the Unit
ed States continues to take the stand
that has been outlined. Japanese
in America must change their atti
tude toward the United States, in
arinuch a the two nations will he

"It is to be hoped that Japanese
in Hawaii will not show enmity to
ward Germans and Austrian in
petty things but rather keep the atti
tude of a great nation. If the time
comes when the Japanese residents
of Hawaii are needed they must

Mks. K. Fountain,
January 27, 1917.
Editor, Garden Island,
Li hue, Kauai.
In the "Maui News" I have
noted your comment on the pro
posed Farm Loan Act for Hawaii,
in which you express apprehension
that the measure may not turn out
to be as beneficial as could be hoped
for because of the advantageous rate
of interest provided to le paid by
the farmer borrowers. The rate is
G7(, the same as the maximum
provided by the Federal Farm Ixan
Act and higher than that paid by
the farmers in any other country
where such an act is in effect. The
I maximum rate authorized to be
paid by the Farm Loan Board to
the banks is 41-2 which is one
half of one percent higher than the
interest paid on Territorial bonds.
It would seem, therefore, that the
fact that money has a market value
has been taken into account and no
effort made to establish rates at
variance to the market value.
As far as the soundness of the
proposed Act from a financial stand
point is concerned it may interest
you to know that one of the fore
most financiers of the Territory,
Mr. C. H. Cooke, gave the early
drafts of the Act h i s careful
scrutiny, mid his criticisin have
lwen cmlxidied in the prevent drift.
We hope you will be able to
"boost" for this Act. We ask your
support if you feel that you can
conscientiously give it.
Very truly yours,
EnwiN C. Moore
