Mrs. James Russell, who has come
to Kauai at the request of the Wo
men's Committee of the -Territorial
Food Commission . to teach bread
making and food economy, arrived
on, Wednesday the seventh. She
will be on the Island for ten days

monstrations in each district, On
Wednesday she was the guest of
the Mokihana Club at their month
ly meeting. On Thursday she be
gan her tour of the Island, demon
strating first at Kcalia, where a
very attentive and interested group
of some 'one hundred women and
girls, amongst them many Portu
guese, Japanese, IJawaiians and
Chinese, met to watch the making
of rice and Graham breads and rice
biscuits, and to gather information
as to the seriousness of the food
shortage and the many economics
which all thoughtful people arc
now glad to practise. Mrs. Iiussell
enlivened her talk with several
pleasing stories and explained many
practical and valuable little devices
in cookery, which were of interest
to all. Mrs. Senni was in charge
of arrangements and was ably as
sisted by Mrs. Burke and her staff
The meeting at Kilauca, arrang
ed by Mrs. Myers, was held on Fri
day afternoon and was in a tent
near the mill. Here many Filipino
and Portuguese women attended.

telligent group of women, all eager
for definite information and ready
with many questions. The prepa
ration for this meeting was made
by Miss Edith Christophcrsen.
At each meeting little recipe
books gotten out by the Women's
Food Committee containing Mrs.
Russell's own war-time recipes were
given out, and after following the
making of the breads and tasting
them as they were baked, the wo
.iiienjtook the books home to follow
out work on the same lines.
Mrs. Russell is a 'graduate of a
London Domestic Science School,
and has boon in tou6h with Eng

New Postage Stamp
Washington, November 7 -(Associated
Press)An issue of 13-cent
stamps is planned by the postofiieo
department for registeicd and spe

A special meeting qf the Cham
ber of Commerce was hold on Wed
nesday afternoon to make arrange
ments for the entertainment pf tho
Congressional party soon to visit
Kauai. The secretary read the cor
respondence which apprized the
local authorities that tho party
would consist of some twenty-two
persons and that they would arrive
on Kauai on the morning of the 20th
of November and leave on tho eve
ning of tho 21st. v
In addition to tho original party
there would be ten or twelve Hono
lulu people who would accompany
them. Messrs. J. II. Coney, C. II.
Wilcox and J. II. Moragne had
been suggested from Honolulu as a
local Island committee to cooperate
with tho general committee of ar
rangements in Honolulu.
Mr. Coney explained that the
legislature had made a generous ap
propriation for the purpose of enter
taining tho party and that wo would
not bo expected to bear any consid
erable burdens in that lino. But it
was up to us to handle the whole
affair so that the limited time would
bo well spent and tho party be well
Ho succested that committees
should bo appointed to handle tho
whole matter, as on former similar
The first idea was that they should
bo entertained at the hotels, but
this soon gave place to tho convic
tion that we should entertain them
in our homes, a? we had done form
er much larger parties; and that wo
could not well go back on our good
reputation for hospitality and cour
tesy: it would be for only one night
and the party w'ould bo compara
tively small. This' view finally pro
vailed without any question.
In regard to transportation, it
was pointed out -by Mr. Coney and
others, that in many cases it'.would
be very inconvenient for those en
tertaining guests also to furnish auto
transportation; especially for those
not employing chauffeurs it would
be difficult to drive their guests to
far parts of the Island. It was ac
cordingly tacitly agreed that trans
portation should be furnished out
side of the entertaining hosts to, be
paid for out of the legislative ap
propriation Request for an estimate of ex
pense of the party while on Kauai
having been made from Honolulu
Mr. Wishard suggested that such
an estimate should bq made and for
warded. The appropriation made
by legislature was 40,000. The
party will spend about a tenth of
the whole time on Kauai. The
central committee notify us that
they will pay 82000 for the charter
of the Kilauea to bring them to
Kauai. How would it be to ask
for the other 'S2000 for entertain
ment purposes on Kauai?
After some discussion this sug
gestion was accepted and Mr. Coney
was authorized to reply by wireless
giving this as the estimate of the
requirements of Kauai.
The matter of the necessary com
mittees to make all arrangements
and cdhduct the onterpriso then
eamo up for lengthy discussion with
considerable difforei.co of opinion
and a good deal of desultory talk,
the final outcome of which was that
the chair should appoint four com
mittees of throe members each, to
wit: Finance, Transportation, En
tertainment and Public Interests.
This latter committee, public inter
ests.should see to it that tho various
interests and requirements of Kauai
bo set before the Congressional par
ty in the most convincing and ap
pealing light. It was felt to be
much better to have a definite com
mittee with a definito responsibility
to attend to this matter than to
leave it to the interest arid initia
tive of private individuals who
might have varying interests and
It was the sense of the meeting
that there should bo a public recep
tion presumably at tho armory in
Lihue, on tho ono evsning that
they were here, and day excursions,
to the various points of interest;
one day to tho Waimea feide and
tho other to Ilanalei .
The Proposed Inter-Island
Tho second matter- for which this
! special meeting was called was tho
change of schedule of the .Kinau.

Books For The Soldiers
An appeal has como from the
Library of Hawaii for books to be
placed in the various Camps on
Oahu. At Fort Kaniehameha there
are several new companies, with
some college men, and no library.
At the Carter Library, Schofield
Barracks, children's books aremueh
wanted. Any good reading-matter,
such as novels, etc., in which the
books are in good condition will be
most welcome. Books may, be ship

will bo glad to pay freight, or may
be sent in to Miss Elsie Wilcox,
Lihue, for forwarding.
Dentistry for School Children
An important bit of action taken
by the Mokihana Club at the meet
ing of last Wednesday, was a genor
ous appropriation from tho funds
realized from the fair for dental at
tention for the children of the pub
lic schools of Lihue. Many of theso
children are sadly in need of such
attention, and for Jack of it their
lives may bo more or less seriously
handicapped. An arrangement will
be made with Dr. Branch to give a
certain number of hours a week to
"the needs of the children at the re
quest of Miss Kuhlig tho communi
Mrs. K. C. Ahana left by the

Mr. Fernandez of the Moving
Picture Business came lxfore tho
Board of Supervisors last Wednes
day with a request that he be grant
ed the privilege of showing moving
pictures on Sunday evenings.
In support of his request he pre
sented a petition quite largely sign
ed by responsible residents of the
Island. In addition ho contended
that high class pictures are very
expensive, afid the only way that
lie would bo able to continue the
good service that he was trying to
give was to secure a larger patron
age. A Sunday evening exhibition
would probably reach a larger au
dience than any other, and would
insure the best class of pictures for
Kauai. Ho was very . sure that
there could be no reasonable objec
tion to such a show. It was a
quiet orderly way of spending the
evening, and one which kept people
out of mischief. If not in such a
show many would be gambling or
In rebuttal Judge L.rA. Dickey
presented a weighty petition pray
ing that such permission he not
granted on the grounds that, the
pictures which would be shown
would not be educational or Bib-
blical as required by the law; that
there was no likelihood of getting
such pictures since the local show
men were entirely m the hands of
those who made up tho programs
elsewhere; that there was no need
nor any considerable demand for
such Sunday evening shows; that
they would be detrimental to pub
lic morals and pub.ic interest, and
would farther tend to vitiate public
He called attention to the fact
that the petition presented by Mr.
Fernandez was an old one, signed
a year ago, and that many of those
who signed had done so under the
misapprehension that really good
pictuies would be furnished. Ex
perience had convinced them how
ever that this was a mistake, and
now they had signed tho latter
Two or three others spoke along
the same line and there was quite a
delegation of those interested at
tending. After careful considera
tion the Board decided to table the
request, mainly on the ground that
tho pictures likely to be sljown
would not be of a religious or Bib
lical character required by the law,
and that there does not seem to be
any general desire for them.
