First, you have withdrawn from the suply of material of the
Natioi. something to replace whiih in the market will require labor
and material which should be devoted to war purposes.
Second, the person to whom you pay your money may also use
il to purchase things requiring material and labor which should be
devoted to war purposes. And the person' to whom he pays it may
lepeat the operation.
Hut when you lend your money to the (Joverninent instead of
spending it. you will at once lessen the drain to a certain extent on
our country's resources, its material, its labor, and its transporta
tion facilities, and iu addition you supply your (lovernment with
money to be used iu winning the war.
Every purchase of a Liberty Loan Bond, War Saving Stamps and
Thrift Stamps is an individual act toward bringing victory to Amer
ica ami her Allies.
The fact that the Food Administration has said that wheal less
days and meals are optional in private homes is reason that the house
keepers should serve wheat every day. or even once a day.
It has been proven that the substitutes which we are now using,
oatmeal, barley flour, lir.in, graham flour, and, well we might go to
name many more, are a great deal more healthful than the pure wheat
flour, as the proportion of the starchy substances are greater in wheat
flour than in them and to many of lis is unhealthful..
Many women who have signed the "pledge cards" have found out
for the first time that these substitutes can be used and not wasted as
heretofore. Many dishes have been brought to life that are most
wholesome. A great many people used to think that graham crackers
oatmeal crackers, barley bread, bran mush, etc., were for the use of
invalides only, or possibly for those who were suffering from some
certain disease. While these foods are good for these people suffer
ing with these diseases, they are yet good for all.
It was not so very long ago that the doctor prescribed bran as
a part of a diet for my wife, she would say, "come and try a little of
this," and I would say, "no I am not sick," but since we have joined
the food conservation moenient, I have eaten bran muffins, graham
crackers, barley bread and a multitude of other things and have
found them good. So lcls all go ahead and help to win "our victory"
by having regular w heat less and meatless meals and days without
having the Food Administrator sending us rules and regulations
all tile time.
An event of the most supreme importance. The First Territorial
Fair which will be held in Honolulu, dune 10 to loth.
An event that is important because it will show the people of the
Territory and of the mainland what we are doing to help conserve
the fod, to make our selves self-sustaining ami supporting. This will
be done by the exhibits of various and (liferent food port! nets, both'
animal and vegetable.
The Territory is sparing no expense to make it a success and
from the way the different committees are working, and the pooph
coming in with entries it will be the biggest event that the Territory
has ever had.
The livestock section will be especially good, the ranchmen of
the Islands having responded to a generous degree with exhibits,
Various food products are being entered for the show, the flower div
ision showing the different plants and flowers will be large, but the
greatest of all will be the sugar and pineapple sections, and these
will show the backbone of our agricultural industry.
And for the amusement of the general public there will be a
fully equipped zone of pleasure w ith different shows and concessions
for "all work and no play makes .lack a dull boy."
It is up to Kauai to l:ve a County exhibit, one (hat will be sec

All iu all tliis will be liie lragest event that the Territory has

Iahue, Kauai, April 17th, 191S.
Editor of The New Freedom,
Dear Sir: On April 7th, while ex Governor Carter was on Kauai work
ing for the American lied Cross, there w.is a meeting at the Lihue Armory
presiueu over uy uov. J. .M. Lyiigate and with Mr. Carter aa the main at
Mr. Carter made a fine impression with this noble speech and aroused
One biot on the program was the appearance of Mr. Merman Wnllera
Manager of the Makee Sugar Co.. on the platform along with Messrs. Walter
JlcHiyue. wr. J I. U. Wislianl and Mr. Frank Crawford.
Indignantly I wrote the enclosed article to the Garden Island, hut was
I have known Mr. YVolleis the last 2! years and he has alwavs lieen
considered a rabid C.iiiiian. along with many others here in Lihue. Since

I think that it about time that the people woke up to he danger in our
miusi, us Mr. i.eorge r air. lnlil lately said in the Honolulu naners anil th:.t

Thii article referred to. sent to the Garden Island
cation by that paper.
but refused publi
Kindly permit me through your valuable paper to voice a protest against
the appearance of Mr. Herman Woltcrs. Manager of the Makee Sugar Co.,
with Mr. George Carter and the other worihy gentlemen on the platrorm at
Sunday's semi religious and patriotic meeting at the Lihue Armory.
Had it not been a semi-religious meeting, I would on the spot have made
my protest ami asked Mr. Woltcrs to step down and leave the building in
which he had no place, but rather than at that time create a possible and dis
tressing disturbance. I can not but now voice my sincere protest.
That a man of Mr. Welters" well known pro-Germ in leanings and ac
tivities, putting lrm easily in the Wein;:heiiner class, if not worse, should
be pennited and even requested by the Kauai Chamber of Commerce to have
the honor to take a seat on the platform on a public occasion and facing the
flower of Knuui'H loyny and devoted men is aa an insult so great ns to call
for drastic measures almost.
It is a case of Mr. Carter, the head of the newly formed American Vlg- !
ilnnce Society, nursing a unnko nt his bosom and it fleems incredible that
the other very worthy gentlemen on the stage with him Rhould have been so
Utterly blind and fooled into permitting nn outrage like this to tako place.
I sincerely hope if occoslon again arises nnd the public again meets to
listen to patriotic speeches, that we may be spared the insult of seeing Mr.
Wolters in a seat of honor, that l.o may bo left out to learn sincerely on
which side his bread is buttered and what constitutes a good American cit
izen, rather than be permitted again to insult loyal Americans with his sin
The editor of the Garden Island did not refuse to publish t lie "1
above article. The fact that "American" was not man enough to have
his name at the bottom of said article is sufficient answer. Our
columns are open to everybody that has got nerve enough to back
up what they write with their own signature.
The present is no time for one man to assail the loyalty of an
other unless he is prepared to come out into the open and prove
"American" has taken the Kauai Chamber of Commerce to task
for allowing Mr. Herman Woltcrs to sit, as a member of the Liberty
Loan Comittee, on the platform at our recent patriotic rally, lie
also makes grave charges against Mr. Wolters. These charges the
public of Kauai would like to have proven, or disproved.
If "American" knows of a g 1 and sufficient reason why Mr.
Wolters should be locked up as an alien enemy, he is aiding and a-
betting the Kaiser by not bringing charges. But all Americans would
like it better if "American" would come right out into the open like
As the case now stands Mr. Wolters has the sympathy of all fan
minded people. lie also has the thanks of the Chamber of Commerce
for the splendid work he did on the Liberty Loan Committee.
As to "American" A great many people around these parts
A just punishment was meted out to the man who uttered sedit
ious remarks in a saloon in Honolulu some time ago. One year and
a day was the sentauce imposed on Victor Johnson, former fireman
on the steamer Sacramento for this crime.
While there have been several arrests for this same kind of thing
Johnson is the first to feel the weight of trie hand of the law. It is
to be hoped that the judges will give the full limit of the law in sent
ancing any more who may come before them on this charge, so that
these people who scoff at the idea that Allies will win the war, will
be more careful of their language in the future.
We understand that the piece of road extending from the Lihue
Mill crossing to the top of the hill by the public school, is to be torn
up and rebuilt. Likewise the piece of road running across the Hats
between Hanamaulu and ailua. These two pieces of road are
notoriously bad, and Macadam and oil will not stand the wear and
tear they are subjected to. If they are rebuilt with, Macadam it will
only he a short time until they are again in as bad comlilion as they
are at present.
We would suggest that these two strips be rebuilt with concrete.
ihc initial expense will probably be a little more but the cost of up
keep will be practically nothing and, those two car-wrecking pieces
of road will be fixed for all time.
I'earl Harbor is to have an addition to her already extensive
Naval Hospital. This was assured when the Senate of the United
States passed a resolution for an appropriation of $150,000. The
addition is to be built within the next four months. The Naval Hill
as it was passed calls for the construction of hospitals at home and
abroad and caries an appropriation of $10,.!)r,000.
