A Bit of Personal Interest
On one Occasion when I was at
tending a convention at Gray's
Harbor, state of Washington, I took
advantage of a few hours off to visit
the Hoquiam Lumber Mills in the
near vicinity. Availing myself of
a note of introduction, I presented
myself at the manager's private
oince, who on learning mat l was,
from the Islands, immediately said, :
"From the Sandwich Islands eh?
i wonucr h you ever neam ot anv
Emersons down there, old mission
aries I believe." "Why, yes!"
I replied I know the family 'cry
"You know I'm an Emerson,
not exactly one of the missionary
kind, and they are my cousins.
I have often intended to go down
there and eee them, but have never
made it out."
That was over twenty years ago;
and from that timo to this I have
never heard of the Gray's Harbor
Emersons. But now I understand
that a son of this same Emerson
was at Stanford with Wilfred Dole,
brother of our C. S. Dole; they be
came firm friends and after gradua
tion they formed a partnership,
secured a site and "limits" and es
tablished themselves in the lumber
business on one of the little rivers
running into Grays Harbor.
. When America went into the war,
with the inherent patriotism of
every Dole, and every Emerson,
thev applied for enlistment and
were informed that they were worth
ten times as much where they were
as they would be at the Front.
They have large contracts for the
j manufacture of spruce lumber, an
indispensable factor in the manufac
ture of battle aeroplanes. The
coarser kinds of pine and fir can be
used for some of the parts of the
heavier machines, but the lighter
ones must have spruce, and the
available supply is going to be tax
ed to the utmost.
Accordingly they are putting all
their patriotism, and all their energy
into their output of spruce, good
sound reliable timber that the bird
men can bank on.
New Red Cross Members
Although sugar is the chief ex
port of Hawaii, Hawaiian planters

Makaweli: Casl Frank.
Wash: James F. Ryan.
The numlwr of members secured
to date on Kauai is now 811.
The response from the Filipino
and Japanese residents is most
gratifying. The Filipinos in Kila
uea are coming particularly to the
fore in their interest and support,
and Mr. Fukunoga, editor of the
Kauai Shuho Slia, Ltd., who last
month secured S? members from
amongst his fellow Japanese coun
trymen and turned in $113, has
this month again secured us a con
tribution from the Japanese of
848.05, This amount was secured
in small donations of from ten to
evenly-five cents each. Some of
it being contributed by children in
the Japanese schools. Mr. Fuku
noga's activity and the ready res
ponse of his people is most com
mendable and will be appreciated
at Red Cross Headquarters in Wash
ington as well as locally on the Is
lond of Kauai.
Members according to districts
are as follows:
Hanalei 12; Kilauea 49; Kealia
SI; Lihue od'J; Koloa 58; Home

Waimea (19; Kekaha51; Honolulu
23; U. S. A. 6. Total, 811.
The New War Breads
The variety and possibilities of
war bread have been a surprise and
each new week produces snine new
combination. The earlier mixtures
of wheat flour with that of other
grains, rye, corn, barley, etc. seem
ed quite natural. A rice bread
seemed more of a departure and
sweet potato bread still more. The
! latest that we have heard of, and
ono of the best, is bread-fruit bread
where this fruit is combined with
wheat flour in the proportion of
about one to two.
The resulting bread is unusually
light, creamy yellow, ond delicious
ly sweet and fine flavored.
Italy has led the world in the
construction of giant super-battleplanes.
