Mr. It rod in of the Kleele school
talks, most enthusiastically of the
interest that his school has deve
loped in the matter of school gar-
dons. And it isn't a matter of
artificial interest boosted "up by the
recent prize- contest but a healthy

things that pertain thereto. He

Three Courses Enough
The Star-Bulletin comments as
A plain three-course dinner was
served last night at the University
Cub to Chairman Dole of the food
commission, and his guest ,sas a proof
that simple menus are perfectly
satisfactory to the human appetite.
"Now this," said Mr. Dole, "is
the sort of thing wc want every hotel,
restaurant, boarding house, dub and
private family to adopt. It is not
only nothing of. a hardship, but it
is a benefit. Most people eat more
than is necessary,"
One of the guests told of a dinner
he had attended a few nights before
where there were seven courses,
four of which were superfluous, and
none of which was thoroughly con
sumed. "That's the kind of meal Hawaii
has no right to cat just now" he
put it. "Every such meal takes
something from the starving people
of our Allies in Europe."
Have you thought of that? Have
you thought, that, if America gets
right down to the essentials in pre
paring meals, there will be just so
much more for the hungry women
and little children of certain Euro
pean countries? It's a fact.
It's a fact also that every pound
ol lood wlncli Hawaii does not im
port for consumption here allows a
little more cargo-space for things
very badly needed, such as feed

F Goodyear Cord Tires were
merely strong, or merely flex
ible, they would be much less
notable. Many tires are strongs
Many tires are flexible. But few,
mighty few, tires are strong and
flexible both. Goodyear Cord
Tires are. That is why they ride
easier, go farther, last longer, and
cost less in the end.
The proper traveling companion for a
Goodyear Cord Tire is a Goodyear
Tube. A tube built to hold air, and keep
on holding it. A tube that won't leak,
seep or creep- that makes the casing
deliver its full store of service.
All Goodyear Service Station Dealers
(there's probably one in your neighbor
hood) have Goodyear Tires and Tubes.
All are trained and eager to see that
you get out of , them the final mile we
have built into them. AH are interested in
your return from your tire investment
and keep interested after the purchase.
