Red Cross Drive a Big
IN SPITE OF FOLLOWING
The following message was received by Manager W. 1).
We congratulate Kauai and take pride in sister Island's
achievement. Hurrah for Kauai. Thanks everybody.
WE THANK YOU.
The management extends thanks to one and all who have
' contributed to the splendid showing Kauai has made in giv-
ing so generously to the Red Cross. Words are inadequate.

The Red Cross drive has ended.
Kauai has Gono over the top once
Coming so soon after the Liberty
Loan drive, the gonerous manner in ,
which every body rosponded, has been J
a revelation to the workers in the
drive. It would bo a hard matter to
find a person who has not mado a do
nation or signed a pledge Several
plantations and: other large employers
will go 100 per cent.
Perhaps tho most pleasing thing
about the whole campaign so far as
this island is concerned, is tho way in
which the Japanese and Chinese res
idents have rosponded. Without doubt
95 per cent of the Oriental population
participated in tho drive. In most j
cases they gave moro than was ex
pected o fthem. Tho wrltor, in num
erous cases, in asking a laborer for a
pledgo of one per cent of his salary,
which would average about 25 cents
per month, would meet with a respon

A party of government surveyors,
Tommy Evans, T. B. Duch, formerly
of Kllauea, and C. H. Chung arrived
from Honolulu last Tuesday and are
located at Kaapa.
They are located at Kaapaetaoln ao
They have already started survey
ing tho Wailua lands, some 2000 acres
In extent, that are to bo cut up in 30
and 35 acre tracts. Tho work will
take about three months time.
Many peoplo will bo glad t'o hear
of this, as these Wailua lots are es
pecially fine, being of rich soil and
well watered. The pity is that thero
are so few of them. Spped tho day
when all government land is .home
steaded and tho peoplo have manned

After being missing for two nights
and moro than one day Major Clark
and his mechanician stepped out from
the Kaiwiki homestead woods at half
past twelve o'clock yesterday- after
noon and reached Hllo in the police
automobile about half past two.
Tho entire population of Hllo turn
ed out to givo them welcome. They
say that those who packed their mach
ine before leaving forgot to put any
chocolato In 'and consequently they
suffered for provisions. Major Clark
after a nights rest seemed as fresh as
a daisy but his mechanician was con
siderably exhausted, suferlng from
cramps in legs nnd his stomach is dis
ordered. Neither of them suffered any

Post Master Santos
Speaks for Red Cross
Mr. M. G. Santos, Postmaster elect
of Lihuo, who is in our midst awaiting
his commission, that ho may take
charge, has in the meantime gener
ously given his spare time to tho Red
Cross by addressing meetings at Kal
aheo on Monday and Eleele on Wed
nesday. Mr. Santos has rendered val
uable service by speaking to tho Por
tuguese of these places, dispelling
lingering doubts and by his fervent
and enthusiastic addresses won over
many Portuguese, who otherwise
would not have mado contributions to
the good cause. Messrs. Walter Me
Bryde and J. I. Sllva ontortalned Mr.
Santos while over there. Mr. Santos
will surely bo a force for good among
tho Portuguese on Kauai and should
have tho hearty cooperation and wel
come of the whole island.
It apparently makes no difference
to tho peoplo of Kauai whether it
rains or shines, when thero is a Red
Cross benefit, thoy go.
This was shown in tho Jitney Soc
ial whih was held at the residence of
Mr. and Mrs. Larson, of tho Kllauea
Plantation. A big, happy crowd gath
ered from all over tho Island and If
smiling faces were an indication that
they wero having a good time, then
it was unanimous.
Tho grounds wero beautifully decor
ated with Japanese lanterns and the
rooms with Red Crosses and Flag
shades on the lights put the fnlshlng
touch to the decorations.
A bevy of pretty, young girls, in
Red Cross uniforms presided over the
various nnd different booths nnd it
was hard to tell which was patronized
tho most. Thero was punch, ico cream
cigars and cigarettes, cards for those
who did not care to dauco, boats on
tho river, moving pictures and a fine
supper for those who were hungry.

My wife died two months ago. My
older son belongs to Class 1A and is
not too proud to fight the Huns. My
second son has not yet reached his
20th birthday but is eager to fight for
democracy. Thero should not bo room
on Kauai for those who aro to proud
to fight for Old Glory. Mr. A. Robin
son bases his claim for deferred classi
fication ofr his son on the ground that
his son Is the ablo manager of a ranch
This is a poor excuse as ho could fnd
another man abovo draft age to man
ago his ranch. Appeals for deferred

Robinson case has becomo a blot to
Kauai. Wo should have a law to bar
all slackers from tho polls on election

Mr. Jack Horner rendered several
songs during the evenng and his aud-

everyone said, "no change"
