crisis in our food problem

posed that common labor in those
T t . . 1 1 .
islands receives a very limited re
muneration compared with that
paid on the mainland. This may
doubtless be true of certain kinds of
work, or under certain conditions
but it does nut seem to be true of
the sugar business.
A comparison of the rates of r
niuneration between Hawaii and
Louisiana taken from The Cane Sug
ar industry, shows as follows:

This is for straight regular wages
and does not include the bonus paid
here in Hawaii, which would in
crease the advantage of the laborer
hero1 by OO'e or C,.Ve.
It would look as though the work
er here gets more than twice what
that in Louisiana does.

Our Nation-in act the whole
world-is to-day face to face with a
veiy definite crisis. The world's
food supply is beyond any question
dangerously low. If there lind loon
no war there would have lcon ser
ious shortages in many crops last
year and the year before due to un
favorable climatic and soil condi
tions. These natural shortages were,
of course, tremendously increased
by the withdrawal from productive
work of millions of men for the
armies and munition plants o f
There are clear indications of fur
ther decrease in food production
during the coming year. The De
partment o f Agriculture predicts
that the winter crop in this country
will be 52,000,000 bushels less than
that of 19K?, or 243,000,000 bushels
less than the crop of 1915. , Also,
with the entry of the United States
into the world war, from one to
two million more men seem likely
to be withdrawn from productive
work-BUT-TIIESE MEN WILL
NOT STOP EATING NOR THEIR
Added to all these circumstances
is the fact that the nation has, by
allying itself on the side of the
Allies, assumed new responsibilities.
It cannot live for itself alone. It
is morally bound to give its friends
in Europe the help they need to
win and it begins to be apparent
that what they NEED MOST just
now IS FOOD.
No one can tell how long this
war will last, nor how long the ab
normal demands it has developed
will last. In any event, however,
normal conditions of food produc
tion and distribution cannot be res
tored until long after the war has
ceased. Many months will lie re
quired for readjustment to the acti
vities of peace and for planting new
crops and raising, as well as distri
buting them. Therefore, no relief
of the strain is in sight.
The seriousness of this crisis is too
obvious for further comment. It is
situation too, that involves a
seemingly impossible achievement
the securing of greatly increased
crops in the face of a steadily de
mising supply of labor. While
means may he found to somewhat
check this decrease in labor, such
measures cannot completely solve
the problem, and they cannot be
immediately effective. In the mean
time th planting seasons are ad
vancing, time is passing what ore
we going to do? nature will wait
for no one.

tion by the systematic and patriotic
