Work for Alien Enemies
Tho following notice comes from
the Department of Justice, Washing
ton, D. C:
To all United States Attorneys
and United States Marshals.
For reasons of both expediency and
Justice, it is highly advislble that the
Government should not impose idle
ness upon any alien enemy not intern
eded or arrested. A man who has
been deprived of his employment un
der the alien enemy regulations will
often have great dtfllculty in finding
other employment. He is potentially
more dangerous to the nation while
in Idleness than when at work. The
country's industries need the work of
all able-bodied men. The Government
does not desire to produce unneces
For these reasons, it is desirable
that any alien enemy who is not plac
ed under arrest but is displaced from
his employment by action under the
Presidential Regulations shall, when
ever he needs such assistance, be as
sisted in the finding of other employ
ment: that information as to the place
of his new employment be obtained in
all cases, so that his whereabouts and
activities can be traced; and that, ex
cept where public safety and emerg
ency demand otherwise, he is not
displaced from an existing place of
employment until there is reasonable
assurance of his finding employment
The Department of Labor has ex
pressed its willingness to assist by
means of its employment agencies, in
finding employment for all worthy
enemy aliens displaced by the regu
lations, and, in all such cases, you are
authorized and instructed to bring the
situation to the attention of the local
employment agencies of the Depart
ment of Labor and to co operate with
such agencies, with a view to carry
ing out the principles and policies
herein set forth.

Jose Don't Like New Schedule
Editor Garden Island I wish to let
you know my view on the new sched
ule of mail boats and that it U very
unsatisfactory to all the people on this
side of the island.
Tuesdays and Fridays the patrons
of my Post Office make my head swim
with questions in regard to the mail.
For a long many years mail use to
reach here regularly at from 8:30 to
9 o'clock on Tuesdays and Fridays
but now it reaches here as late as
half pass two in the afternoon.
Is that improving the mail service?
Not at all we are suffering more than
before special the business men.
Every thing to satisfy Lihue district
regardless of what may happen to
those on this side.
I would like very much if we would
go back to old schedule. You may
publish this letter as you see fit.

OLD FRIENDS HEARD FROM

Prizes tor Live Stock
Honolulu, April 15 To the owner of
the best senior yearling bull of tho
Holstein breed exhibited in the cattle
show at the Territorial Fair In June,
a sliver cup will be given. This is a
special prize offered by the Holstein
Frleslan Association of America. The
offer was received this week in a letter
from the Association's headquarters,
at Brattleboro, Vermont.
At present the only entry which
may qualify for the special prize is the
young Holstein bull owned and to be
exhibited by Robert Hind, of the Is
land of Hawaii.

The American Short-horn Breeders'
Association, of Chicago, offers a spec

horn bull, cow or heifer shown at the

whether any animals of that breed
listed in the Fair's entries can quality
Tho American Oluernesy Cattle Club
ma offer a special prize for some of
the best specimens of the Guernesy
breed shown at Honolulu In June. The
secretary has. written the Fair Com
mission Raying this will be taken up
at a meeting of the Club's executive
committee on May 15,
Other special prizes now offered

waiian bred saddle horse: a silver
cup for the grand champion aged boar,
any breed; a silver cup for the heav
iest capon exhibited in the poultry
show, and a pair of New Zeland rab
bits for the best New Zealand doe.

A bomb throwing contest, to be
staged by U. S. soldiers at Kaplolani
Park during the Territorial Fair in
June will give Island civilian folk
their first opportunity to see this un
usual weapon of war, which Is play
ing such a big part in the great fight
against the Boches. It will be the first
time an event of this kind ever has
been seen here.
The competition will be for accuracy
in hurling the hand grenades at given
distances. Men selected from the dif
ferent units of Uncle Sam's forces on
Oahu and who have received training
and become skilful in the deadly art
will stand in a line with a barrier in
front, representing the side of the
trench In which they are supposed to
be stationed on the front battle line.
Unable to see the object at which
they throw, these grenaders, using the
peculiar overhand motion which bomb
throwing science demands, will hurl
the grenades and endeavor to place
them In receptacles set at distances,
which will be called by the officer in
charge. The distance will vary from
20 to 50 yards, and prizes will be
awarded for greatest accuracy of fire.
Of course only dummy grenades will
be used. They will be the same with
which the boys have been training at
the local army posts; similar in every
respect to those used on the battle
line except for the explosive contents.
As a finale however, they will hurl
a number of smoke bombs, showing
how a barrage of grenade fire Is laid
down on the enemy's trenches or on
an advancing wave of Germans while
the latter are making a charge.

A Thriving Taro Farm
By all means the largest single field
of taro on this Island and probably
one of the largest in the Territory, is
that in Hanalel cultivated by the Man
Sing Company. Tliis company has
for many years been enterprising rice
planters. Recently by way of experi
ment they ventured on taro as a sub
stitute crop to change and rest some
of their land
In order to circumvent the taro
blight locally virulent, they imported
sound hulls from Oahu to plant.
The results have justified their en
terprise and intelligence, so that they
now have 17 or 18 acres of as fine a
stand of taro as can be seen anywhere.
It is manufactured into poi on the spot
and is then distributed in the surroun 1
nelghborhood where there is a good
market for it.

FACTS OF EDUCATION
From the Annual Report of the
Federal Commissioner of Education
we cull the following facts:
The total enrollment of the schools
of the country of all kinds and classes
was 23.S57.000 and the cost of support
ing these institutions was 1914,804.000
or $39.37 per capita.
Gifts and' bequests to these schools
during the year amounted to $37,0001
There are 574 universities, colleges
and technological schools in which
there were last year 104,075 men and
95,436 women. The proportion of the
to t!ie former is rapidly increasing.
The report emphasizes the moment
ous importance and value of the tech
nical Behoofs of the country from
which come the men who are best
fitted by selection and training tor the
solution of the many serious problems,
BOci.iI. economical and mechanical, im
posed on us by the war. These schools
have justified their usefulness and
efficiency as never before and a plea
is made for their more liberal support.
