GERMAN DOCTOR IS FIRED
Dr. Karl Mofmann, alien enemy,
employed by the Government as
physician for East and West Kau,
has been dismissed from the service
after Investigations made by Dr. J.
S. B. Pratt, president of the Terri
torial Board of health, who, accom
panied by Chief Sanitary Inspector,
Donald S. Bowman, visited the District
of Kau for this purpose.
Dr. Hofmann's position with the
Government, so far as hla salary was
concerned, was a minor one," said
Inspector Bowman. "Salaries for
government physicians In the outer
districts are usually about $60, and
the physician who receives this ap
pointment Is generally the plantat
ion physician as well. The planta
tion managers and the Territorial
Board of Health get together and
find a responsible physician who can
be relied upon to fill the position.
In this instance the plantation man
agers are Messrs. C. Brewer & Co.,
Ltd., and while I have not heard
positively, I think it pretty safe to
say that they, too, will dispense with
the services of Dr. Hofmann, who is
a German and an alien enemy In the
eyes of the law. Dr. Hofmann will,
I think, leave the district."
Dr. Hofmann will leave the Gov
ernment's Bervlce March 1. No suc
cessor has yet been appointed to his
position. Hllo Herald.
The Dr. Hofmann referred to above,
was formerly plantation physician at
Kealla. Ed. G. I.
CONSERVATION AS THE DOCTOR

JOHN F. RAl'O.O, Liluie, Kauai.
The time is passed when Intelligent
people give the baby a piece of fat
bacon to suck, and feed themselves on
food soaked in grease; they would be
horrified by a suggestion so fraught
with the idea of the slums and the
mountain fastnesses of Kentucky. But
in metropolitan restaurants and din
ing rooms they still Include In a single
meal such foods as oysters, fish, game,
roast, and cheese. "One-half the peo
ple In Christendom," according to Dr.
Henry Smith Williams, the distin
guished scientist and physician who
contributes to the "Science" section of
Hearst's Magazine for February,
"shorten, their lives by over eating or
by perverse eating." And most of this
perversity In the American diet takes
the form of an over supply of animal
protein. Just how dangerous this kind
of gormandising can be Is shown by
the fact that 350,000 deaths in the
United States each year can be traced
to this cause an Increase of forty per
cent. In the last twenty years. The
study of the faults and the remedies
of the American dietary is especially
valuable at this time of the urging
of conservation for the sake of national
welfare. The appeal .of the Food Ad
ministration is reinforced by the judg
ment of a medical expert, whose evi
dence and conclusions no one can uf
ford to ignore.

tenant Blanchard was formerly an in

Honolulu, Feb. IS. One of the first
steps taken by the transportation com
mittee of the Territorial Fair, at its
first meeting. thl9 week, was to draft
a letter to the transportation compan
ies of the terltory. to ascertain wheth
er a special rate may be obtained
for exhibitors and excursionists. A
special rate on livestock, manufactur
ing and agricultural freight will be
sought, and another for passengers, to
aawa n a a .nnoinl (ndiwunirilif trt tirlnir I
visitors from the other islands.
An effort wll be made to get the
largest crowd of Island people in Hono
lulu during the week of June 10 to 15
the period of the First Territorial
Fair, that has gathered in this city for I
At its initial meeting the following
members from outside islands were
added to the committee:
William Walsh, Maul; Capt. George
N. Leavltt, Kauai; P. T. Phillips, Ha
waii, and George P. CooUe. Molokni;
members from Oihu are: O. C. Scott.
John K. Butler is chairman, and other
J. J. Bclser, and Charles Graves.
The question has been asked, "Why
should Hawaii have a fair this year,
at a time when everyone is asked to
save, and get his business and com
munity on a war basis?
This query has been encountered on
every side, by the Fair Commission
ers. It is asked by business men, and
by many of the leading farmers and
George H. Angus, chairman of the
Fair Commission, answers the ques
tion by declaring that the Fair is real
ly a part of the territory's legitimate
war-time work. Aside from its edu
cational features, which few will dis
pute, he says it is intended to Increase
the consumption of island-grown foods
and the use of a very large amount of
materials manufactured In the terri
tory. "I often hear housewives and their
husbands exclaim: 'I want to help by
using more home made and home
grown stuff but I don't know what to
order. I don't know what Is made
here, except for a few of the standard
"This fair is to show the public
what It can buy in the way of Island
grown and Island-made goods.
"And I can guarante now, though
we are not yet even sure of location
of our fair ground site, that we will
surprise almost everyone who visits
the exhibit, by the number of things
and though we are not even certain
many of our plans are yet in embryo,
we will show that are produced here.
The list 1 a long one, including such
things as shoes, macaroni crackers,
Jewelry, soy, paper, molasses, rope,
potash, and the like. We want to im
press upon the public that this is to
be a show primarily of island mater
ials. "We also will surprise the public by
the quality of the things shown. Most
of the goods, live stock and agricul
tural produce created in Hawaii are
just as good as those from the states.
"We are proving these things let
ting the consuming public see for Itself
that this is true, and we are going to
increase the island market for the pro
ducers. "Isn't that precisely what Hoover
wants Hawaii to do as a war-time mea
ure to help America?"
