The Congressional rnrty of 1917 Aloha oukou a pail!
Ever since we know for mire that you were really coming and were
n't going to be side tracked away from us, as some of our good friends
on the other Islands intended, we have been saving the best we had for
you; our smiles, our chickens, our weather, our landings and our roads.
We trust that everything will turn out right, that more of our plans ni
to the quality of the chickens, and -the weather and the landings' may
miscarry', but in any case we want you to know that we extend to you a
generous Hawaiian welcome such as no word in any language will con
vey save the one' Hawaiian word Aloha I
How Far Does Our Patriotism Go?
j Waimea Stables J
A writer in a recent number of the Atlantic Monthly raises this
question. We are patriots enough to stand up with the right music,
to float the flag, and to yell when the soldiers go by. We are even
patriots enough to offer our lives to our country. Are we patriots enough
to stand without flinching when our pockets anil appetites are touched?
We shall see."
We would ventured to assure the Atlantic that for the American
Communities of this Island we arc.

Some Food Commission Results
The significance of the National Food Commission is evident, among
other things in this, that the farmer is receiving $3 00 a barrel more for
his wheat than last year, and the cousumer is getting his flour $3.00,
cheaper This is because of a fixed price for wheat, and of the restraint
of speculation and of undife profit
If it were not for the restraining influence of this Commission sugar
would now.be selling for 15 or 20 cents a pound, which would mean
that the wealthy would have sugar, and the poor would not.
Bv fixing the price and limiting the quantity the awaitable supply
is equitably distributed. .
The Fellowship of Service
A visit to the Koloa Red Cross contingent revealed the pleasant fact
that no less than fifteen women, a very goodly number for so small a
community, and of three or four races, were untiringly engaged in the
good work. Fully half of the number were Japanese and several were
Even if no other benefit were attained the coordination of these dif
ferent elements of the community into one common purpose and one
common effort would in itself be a sijiificant gain. These common in
terests bring us together so that we learn to know one another better and
that leads us to understand and appreciate one another, and tkat in
turn makes for peace and happiness.
Save On Meat
In view of the prospect that Hawaii will have to import beef in order
to meet the growing demand and in view farther of the growing diffi
culties of transportation the injunction to observe meatless meals and
meatless days imposed upon us by the rood Conservation authorities as
sumes a new significance.
We have been thinking, under our breath more or less perhaps, that
this meat conservation program didn't exactly apply to us since we were
sufficient unto ourselves in the matter of meat supply and thus were in
no danger of infringing on the supply which might go to our Allies. It
now aDDears that we will have to economize to make our sunnlv iro round
and this we must do not only1 to conserve the meat that it may go to the
Allies, but also th'at we may conserve transportation space for other .and
more necessary things. Clubs, hotels, restaurants, as well as private
families are urgently requested to obeerve at least one full meatless day
a week and to reduce' the consumption of meat on other days.
Meatless Tuesdays and wheatless Wednesday are being commonly
observed on the Coast and the same, or some similar plan may well !
