Fine Four Minute
by Rev. Lydgate
The Hev. J. M. Lydgate made a very
Interesting 4 minute tallk at the Tip
Top Theatre last Tuesday night. He
spoke on tho Unity of tho people and
the fact that any little, rift or crevace
that was noticeable among the people
was eagerly slezcd upon by the Ger
man propogandlsts and niado wider.
He said that to win this war success
fully we must all stand together and
not let any rift appear among our peo
ple for them to help widen.
"While there has npno of this propo
ganda been circulated on Kauai to my
knowledge" said Mr. Lydgate, wo
must be sure that thero will bo none,
and you all know tho old saying, "an
ounce of prevention is worth a pound
of cure" so this is why I am telling
you these things.

Kauai Rice Situation
The rice situation is very ante, no
new rice till late in June and none In
tho stores . Tho Idas of Waipoll have
200 or 3U0 bags but refuse to sell ex
cept in small quantities and at very
high prices. They refuse to quote
prices. Stores were paying over $9
last week. This rice at $9 a bag is
the samo rice harvested last fall and
which was bringng $G,50 a bag. It is
plain to bo seen that the profit made
by these rice dealers is enormous.
Tho acreage in rice has increased
since last Septombor 191 acres and
G2G acres since tho beginning of tho
County Agent's work. There should
be an Increase of 12,500 bags of rice
over last year on Kauai. Strict regu
lations with legard to shipping rlco
would assure 'Kauai of nearly an ad
equate supply for her own consump
tion for next year.
