RED CROSS TALK
W. H. ZIMMERMAN
Mont of the working members of
the Lihue Red Cross unit were
gathered at the Armory Tuesday
afternoon to meet Mr. Alfred Castle
Secretary for the chapter of Hawaii
and to confer with him in regard to
the new status of the Lihue Divi
sion. Mr. Castle explained that the
plan was to amalgamate the work
of the Lihue Division with that of
the Waimea Division making them
together the Kauai Auxiliary. The
work could go on very much ns it
now does under local leadership but
there should le a uniform system
reports and general officers. In ad
dition to the oflicers now serving an
auditor should be appointed.
Taking up the matter of the forth
coming Red Cross drive he said that
alxrnt five million memberships had
been secured in the United States,
and they were now going to extend
this membership by ten million
more making in all fifteen million
members. The date set for this
great drive was Dec. 17 to 24, and
the goal of every community was to
secure fifteen percent of its popula
tion as members.
Oahu, in their last great drive.had
raised their membership to 16,332,
which was well up to the fifteen
per cent. They would now endeavor
frantically to make it 20,000.
He felt confident that Kauai
would do as well and would bring
their measure up to the required

A Knitting Missionary
Mrs H. D. Wishard has been
carrying on a Red Cross Knitting
Campaign which has now assuni-
1 such large proportions that it
outruns her resources.
When she was at the Coast !?
months or so ago.she was very much
impressed with the energy and de
votion with which everv one was
working for the Red Cross there; so
on her return, she cast alout for
some humble corner where she
mightdo her share.
Her son Leslie being in the Avia
tion Branch she naturally began by
making him a knitted woolen outfit,
which give her a facility which she
could turn to good use in that branch
of the Red Cross work, which had
not then been taken up in Lihue
Uuthtting herself with the neces
sary supplies, tools and materials,
she set forth to organize classes in
the schools or elsewhere, and to
teach, and supply with materials,
any and all who came. She now
has a following of over 70 workeis
of all kinds and classes, and in all
stages, but all doing excellent work.
She starts them on wash rags, from
which, if tliev do well, thev gradu
ate direct to sweaters. These swea
ters however must be started with
great care, the purling being intri
cate, painstaking work; Mrs. Wis
hard starts this purling herself, and
then turns it over to the pupil to
It has been quite a problem to
secure the necessary supplies to
meet the growing demands, and
chop sticks have been called in for
needles in many cases.
The wool must all be wound be
fore it is given out in order that it
may not get tangled and broken.
Not long ago she and her household
sat up winding yearn until mid
night in order that the stock might
be ready for the next day.
With wool $o a pound and hard
to get it pays to take care of it. It
takes about half a pound to a sweater.
There has been a growing demand
for her services and a groiving en
thusiasm in the work. Urgent
invitations have come to her from
Kealia, from the Kapaa Schools.
and even from Anahola, but as it is,
she is putting in 8 or 10 hours a
day, with just time enough to eat
and sleep, and with no time for
house-work, still less for social
amenities. Mr. Wishard is doing
more reading than he has done for
years and when the purling is on he
retreats to the veranda !
So far, Mrs. Wishard has furnish
ed all the necessary supplies, at her
own expense, but from now on the
local auxiliary will assume the ex
We heartily commend the pa
triotism and public spirit displayed
by such enterprise.

Price Fixing to Stay
The American people are unani
mous in their condemnation of the
modern tendency of all necessities
of life to keep increasing in cost.
But when it comes to remedies for
this condition, there are almost as
many opinions as there are men to
exptessthem. During present war
conditions, prices, if uncontrolled.
are likely to soar beyond all limits
of eudurance. The government
therefore has both advanced and
put into effect its remedy by fixing
maximum price above which the
chief necessities of lite may not be
sold. This is the one remedy possi
ble to solve the problem of rising
prices, not only in war time, but
in all times," says Boersianer in
the November Hearst's Magazine.
It Is the only remedy that ancient
Egypt. Greece, and the most en
lightened governments of mediae
val Europe after much experiment
ing found practicable, and one
which all of them finally resorted
to. The war will teach the ad
