Garden Island Advance A Fore Word
The (Iaki)KX Islaxp lias come, we tliink. lo a point of new depar
ture, and we want to take the public into our confidence with the hope
that we may secure their approval and cooperation.
Our conception of a country newspaper is one which will primarily
give the news, the kind of news that will he appreciated hy its readers.
In these stirring times this will of course mean Ihe suhslanee of the
world news, as this is available; hut since the Honolulu and other paper
pive this in detail, from day to day, and most of our ivadn find it
there, we take it that it is mainly up to us to furnish the hval ueu.
We will accordingly endeavor to furnish this kind of new-, as fully
and promptly as possible, and we bespeak the help of the pu's-li.- in this
ctTort. Anything that you are not ashamed of, and haviift got a trade
secret claim on, let us know about it. Give us the plain un-varnished
facts in the rough, we will tjx them up to your satisfaction.
Judging by our own experience, people want shor
paragraphs, rather than long winded, prosy esays, ar.d
we are going to try to give them; we do not want ar.y n
reading the (Sakden Island!
Furthermore we are in the market to keep the !ri
and make new ones. We are not looking for any kir 1
dont set up to be destructive reformers or inuek-ra.-ki r
kindly greeting ami a pleasant smile for every one. Vis''
will endeavor to see the good side of everyN'dy. ar.d
cause. With the wise men of all ages, we believe that

no uncertain tones.

Do Your Share
This is a democratic country where every man is not onlv entitled
to take his place in public matters, but is in duty bound to do so. We
keep up with the procession or we lag behind, in a community way. as
we take a hand in things. In Russia perhaps the governing classes
may run things and tend to things; in America the people must.
There is great danger in a prosperous and somewhat anomalous
community like this, lest we fall into the dependent and servile condi
tion of letting the man "higher up" carry our burdens for us, and
thereby deprive us of our privileges. Thank Heaven for the men of
large means and large hearts to administer them, but alas for the para
sitic unnianliness that would surrender to them the public and social
duties and privileges of the community. Alas for the servile indilTcr
enee that would say "they own the country let tin-in run it!" This is
our country as well as theirs, this is our community as well as theirs;
the social and moral problems of the island as ours as well as theirs,
and we ought, every one of us, to do our share toward the solution of
these problems. We are in America not in Russia!
Fly The Fag
Every man of us should fly the flag.
The lines have fallen unto us in pleasant places and we have a
goodly heritage ; and we are able to live here and enjoy it because we
dwell under the protecting arm of Uncle Sam; the least that we can do
is to show our appreciation in this simple way.
Every home is safe because of this protection; it should lly th
Hag. Every business is prosperous because of this encouragement; it
should lly the flag. Every plantation has been mightily prospered bv
the favor, yea even the largess of Uncle Sam, who has been pouring for
tunes into their treasuries for half a century or so; they should lly the
flag, on every mill, and office and warehouse in token of appreciation
Ami surely every citizen ought to fly the flag. When our alien neigh
bors set the example and lead the way, as many of them do, surclv wi
ought to wake up and show them that we believe in America as well a

Let The Ladies Lend A Hand!
A prominent Eastern business man of large experience, talking on
the problems of the food situation on these Islands, before the Honolulu
Chamber of Commerce the other day said, "Call on the women to help,
and in three months you will have results."
If this is true of the women of Ohio or Honolulu it is much more
abundantly true of the women of Kauai. We doubt whether, anywhere
in the world, with so small an intelligent population, there can be found
so ollieieiit and capable a body of women as here on Kauai. Over ami
ovei again, we have had evidence of their ability to handle any thing
that thev took hold of; and there can be no better suggestion than 1
seek their cooperation in the solution of these serious food problems, some
of which, at any late, thty understand quite as well as the men, if not
better; problems for which they have the time as well as the inclination.
We would respectfully suggest to the Mokihana club at its coming
meeting on Wednesday, that it appoint a strong committee to cooperate
with the similar committees of the Planters Association and the Cham
ber of Commerce.

Sing The National Anthem
The hearty singing of America at the close of tin- service Sunday
evening ;it the Lihue Union church, suggests that every public gathering
should express its patriotism in some such way. Every moving picture
j-how with musical facilities should end with America or tin- Star Span
gled l'amier, or in default of that with some suitable picture of the Flag.
The Chamber of Commerce meetings, the Mokihana meeting-, even the
in-.re private social gatherings, card pariiei ;uid afternoon teas of th,.
ladies might well terminate wit h t his kiuipli- declaration of patriotism.
This is an American community, and we are leader.-of public n-nt imeiit ,
creators of public opinion, let us not be ashamed of our Country!
