Advance In Patriotism
The patriotic rally hehf last Wednesday if significant of-a great
change that ha come over this Island in the last few years.
A few years ago a patriotic denionst ration was practically a- thing
unknown. Fourth of July to be cure was always observed, but mainly
as a dav of outing or junketing, being commonly celebrated by a demo
cratic picnic. Americanism Vas shy und retiring, and the stranger
dropped down into our midst might have been a little uncertain as to
our nationality. But of late our Americanism has crept out from under
covr, our national convictions have lecn clarified and strengthened, and
we have come to the fuller realization of the fact that thisisan American
community and has no reason to apologize for American conviction or
to hesitate alxiut American devotion.

The Religious Educational Campaign
It is. perhaps premature to judge definitely the extent and value of
the results of a campaign such a that now in progress in Li hue, since it
is largely of the nature of seed sowing begining?, the fruitage of which will
run into the years. The beginings of life are vastly significant because life
is a thing of vast possibilities; and most of all is the spiritual life a thing
of vast possibilities.
If only one hundred lives are affected for good, who can forecast
the salutary rr-sults running down through the years stirred into befog
bv this campaign?
This is the begining, not the end of blessing or endeavor. To plant
the seed is one thing, to cherish it to the full fruitage is another and
greater work; that is yet to come and merits the aid and interest of all
Save On Sugar
Our Government has received a request from the French Govern
ment that we release to them 100,000 tons of sugar for prompt delivery
to meet their immediate pressing needs.
France is on a ration, as are all the other Furopean countries, of
about 21 pounds of sugar per annum per person, or at the rate of lef-s
than an ounce a day, a little more than the weight of a silver dollar
The French people we are told will be entirely without sugar for the
balance of the year, until the new crop conies in, unless we make this
concession; it cannot be had from any other quarter.
Sugar is no longer a luxury; it lias come to be a necessity ; our
French allies must have it.
We in the United States i re using alxiut 00 pounds of sugar per an
num per person, or about 4 ounces a day. To accede to this request of
France and release this large amount of sugar to them will mean a very
great i eduction in our own consumption; but this reduction and what
ever economy it may involve, even to the point of sacrifice, is but a fair
concession to our great Ally who has borne the brunt of the tight for our
freedom as well as her own.
Accordingly the American people are being asked by the National
Food Administration to make this concession and reduce the consump
tion of sugar during the balance of the year as nearly as possible to the
low level of that of trance.

Food Pledge Week
You are asked in Hawaii to do
three main things:
1. Save wheat.
2. Eliminate waste.
H. Use home product.
Why save wheat? Because
I. The supply is short and the
Allies need wheat Nearly five
times more wheat is demanded for
export to Europe than is available
under living conditions as n o w
2. Wheat is the most practical
product wich we can ship alioard.
It contains a very large percentage
of nourishment, it does not spoil so
easily as other cereals, and the
people there are accustomed to eat
The poor people of our own coun-,
try are struggling now under the
burden of high prices. We can
lighten their load and keep them
from starvation by practising strict
How save wheat? I5y
1. Using in place of wheat bicud
corn, oatmeal rice, rye, graham,

whole or in part. Kccipes for all
these breads are being distributed

We are asked as a people to re
(luce our consumption oi lood per
person per week: One pound
wheat flour, (equal to one quart,)
two ounces fat, seven Ounces sugar,
seven ounce meat.
We can do this largely by the
substitution of foods of equal .value
for those we give up. The house
keeper must be resourceful. The
Committee will supply suggestions

A Household Necessity:
Luther Household Sharpener
Why have dull knives, shears, chisels, axes or any ether
dull tool that should be sharp? Here's a sharpener any
child can operate; gives a keen edge in a jiffv; a light
strong little implement that may be quickly attached to
any table or bench."

Next to impossible to sharpen wrong or spoil any tool,
lust the thing for the mechanic to take out on the iob.
