The people of Kauai have re
sponded nolily to the cull of the
nation to huv Liberty llomls ami
for donations for the noble work
of the Red Cross.
Now we are lo have a cniu
pnign for Thrift and War Sav
These War Savings and Thrift
'Stumps are. as we know, in the
nature of a loan to the United
States government anil are also
one of the best investments that
we can make. They were devis
ed not only for the purpose of
providing the government with
monev to carry on the war, but
also for the purpose of filling a
long felt need for the small in-
vester. The interest return i
such that they are as good as
the savings bank ami much more
secure as they are placed in the
strongest bank in the world
Also they teach the people of
our country the principles of
thrift in an easy and convenient
Keinembcr when you buy
War Savings Stamp you d. not
make a donation to the Govern
'iient, but a LOAN. You still
have as much monev as before

only in this case it is the stron

The war is our affair. If the
soldiers in France fired a few
shots each week lroni well in
trenched positions and then set
teled back with a self-satisfied
feeling that they hail done their
duty, it would be just as ridicul
ous to expect them to win as it
is to think that we are doing our
nart by refraininir from eating
meat or wheat bread one day in
the week or by buying a pack of
cigarettes, a plug of tobacco or
a night shirt and sending them
to the bovs in Franci
lluvinii War Savings and
Thrift Stamps isn't a real sacri
fice. They are good business in
vestments. Planting additional
crops ami raising more live stock
to sell in these times of hig!
prices is also a good business
move, and a very necessary oni
too. There isn't any escaping n
sponsibility by the town fellow
saving that the farmers are not
doing their part, and the farm
ers saying that they are expect
ed to do too much. It's a safi
bet that this class are both liv

men now in France and in the

to France, who have offered up
their lives, left their desks, and
their plows behind, their fortuit

'of life. Have we even begun to

NO DOUBT ABOUT OUR
The race In conserving food Is on
between the German Housefrau and
the American Housekeeper. On one
side Autocracy sends a food director
to go side by side with the German
Housefrau to punish her with fines
and Imprisonment if she lags behind.
On the other side Democracy
trusts the American Housekeeper to
put her best efforts Into the race
without the Insidious spur of bribes
and the fear of punishment. The U.
Food Administration is only near
to keep courage In the housekeepers

Germany's housewives have fought
a grin battle in their kitchens. They
have from the first been put on a
strict rationing basis.
America's housewives have vol
untarily fought waste. They have
reduced the consumption of wheat
meat, sugar, and fats by using more
of other foods. Their's is a self-
The need for further reduction and
for more careful saving has become
acute and the housewives are the
logical ones to bring this about.

There is absolutely no just idea

these grains at prices considerably
below wheat (lour. In fact corn
meal should be selling from mill
door at not over 2.1 percent less
than wheat Hour and oatmeal even
less ratio. White corn Hour or
barley Hour should be selling at
not more than ten to fifteen per
cent below wheat Hour.
Wide publicity to these facts is
desirable. Retailers should not
take more than Hi to 111 percent
on the sale price for handling
these products. The wholesale
maximum margins have been fixed
at not over 1(1 percent. Anv
higher prices made at higher levc

Administration without let up.
Where dealers still have stocks
bought at higher levels than t Ik-si

prices as reasonable ami any fail

WAR RECIPES FROM THE MAKA
WELI SCHOOL COOK BOOK.
"I can"t take the time to make
corn bread and other wheatlcss
breads. I have a great many things
to do, and I shall have to keep on
buying my bread from the baker.
But is there any bettor way of
spending a half an hour or an hour
than In making wheatlcss breads?
I doubt it, for he time spent in this
way is time saved for the overburd
ened French woman, doing not only
her own work, in the home, but also
in most cases the work of a man lu
Take a village in America, say of
2000 inhabitants. Within the last
six months tho toll of wur has bor
rowed fifty boys from It. The life In
the village is changed, it is sobered.
But aj-e all the women in this vill
age doing some man's Job in addit
ion to their own? No. They are
still doing pratically the same kind
of work keeping house and caring
for the children.
Then by way of comparison, take
a village of tho Bame size in France.
Since that day in August when the
Germans commenced their march to
Paris, probably 500 men have left
that village, many of them never to
return. In fact every man who is
able to shoulder a gun has gone.
And what are the women who are
left in those small vllages doing?
Is life going on practically the same
for them? Are they still doing their
housework and caring for their
children? Yes, and in addition to
this they are doing the work of the
men who have been taken from the
fields 'and workshops of these villa
ges. The work must be done and
the women, with some help from old
men und young children, are doing
It docs take time not much, but
some, lo make corn bread or other
wheatlless breads. But if the women
of this country don't do it. the women
of France will have to do it or go
without food to eat.
We have more time to make wheat
less breads than the women of
France, who are doing the work of
two people their own work and the
work of their men folks.
.Make war breads, even if it is a
little trouble, and does take more
time than going to the bakor's or
grocer's; and when you do it know
that you are lightening by just so
much the burden of the weary over
worked French woman.
