He said, "What the United State, Uool

i the regulation of the world's food supply
ko that America and her Allien in the war
may be fed at an reasonable price hk it pos
sible to obtain. Reasonable prices are not
necessarily low prices. They are the best that
can be obtained under all conditions of the
situation. Ami whatever may be said about
the Food Administration operating under
authority we have granted them, no one is
heard to complain that our armies here and
in France and Italy are not being well fed. and
that is almighty important. Nothing else
matters so much at this moment. If they are
fed they will hold out till we can get more
men and airships and cannon and ammunition
to them. What ir our civil population is call
ed upon to forego and sacrifice ami practice

armies are fed? And they are being fed or
you would hear of it, I assure yon.
If there existed in any town in this country
such a thing as a woman clasping a half star

body of her husband, who had been torn from
their home ami shot, merly to carry out the
doctrine of terrihleness there would not be

Things have reached a point where we are
either definately for or against. If we are
for these people who are giving all they have
in the world to keep the Teuton spirit from
having its own way in the world, then we will
remember them at every meal as definately
as if we had the privilege of sharing with
them at our own tables.
What is the good of the Senate and of the
House of Representatives if they cannot get
together and pass the necessary laws of this
our Territory of Hawaii?
The legislature has just adjourned from
a special session that was called to do these;
very things, and what did they do? Nothing!
1'assed a few unimportant measures and left
I he important ones go for the next session.
Out of an appropriation of a little more
than $10,000 it cost the Territory more than
$7,000 to have these men go down to Honolulu
and see the sights and hear the latest war
Ia us hope that at the next election that
the people; of this Territory will remember
these things and vote accordingly.
Failure to use the required amount of sub

the Red Cross upon order of the Federal Food
Administrator for Georgia. In requiring this
donation (he Administrator declared (hat his
only reason for not compelling the concern to
close was that it was a necessity to the local

Raking Company has used about 10 per cent,

"The one sure way to supply the supreme
need for food." reads a proclamation by Gov

the bread line with the woman (Miner, the Imiv
power and the girl power of the state."
The purebred American in these days is he
whose bred ciiiim1s purely of substitutes.
By Miss Elsie WUcoi
The message sent out by Mr. Hoover of tb Food
Administration to be rend In all the churches
throughout the United States on May 20th call up
on all who are able to give up the use of wheat abso
lutely until the next harvest' comes In. in the latter
part of August. This 1b a voluntary measure, and
it is recognized by the Food Administration that It
can not be undertaken by oil. For many, especially
for those amongst the working classes. It would en
tail great hardships. This Is all the more reason
however, that those able to do It should undertake
it with greater resolution and enthusiasm, and there
is no doubt whatever that loyal Americans will quiet
ly but firmly align themselves, with the Food Admin
istration In this neessary measure. This Is the test
of our willingness and ability to sacrifice. The
wbeatless weeks are upon us.
Every day must be a whealless day. Hut, having
accustomed ourselves to two whealless days a week
we should know Just how to meet the problem, and
have only to extend the methods adopted for fhose
days to all the days of the week. Thoughtful care
and planting are necessary on the part of the house
wife, and a few timely suggestions are hereby offered.
1. Serve other starchy foods in place of bread,
such as Irish and Sweet potatoes, taro, pol, rice,
wheatless cereals, (commeal, hominy, oatmeal, rolled
oats, barley, etc.), bananas.
2. Use "quick breads." Yeast breads cannot be
made only when wheat or rye flours are used to
some extent In the mixture.
The yeast will not "work" satisfactorily with
the substitute flours alone. Wheat flour we wish
to go without, and rye flour has never
been placed on the substitute list and from the first
we have been asked to go sparing In Its use. This
forces us to resort to the so-called "quick or baking
powder breads," which fortunately can be made en
tirely without wheat or rye flour b, are easily made,
wholesome, and delicious. Many excellent receipes
are given us for barley biscuits, corn brads, barley,
corn, and rice muffins, etc.. Barley Baking powder
biscuits made of barley-flour alone are delicious.
Bake them In loaf form If your family likes sliced
bread. This also allows the slices to be made Into
neat pieces of toast. In making corn bread, use any
favorite recelpe, substituting barley flour for the
wheat flour called for. The barley flour holds the
corn bread together. Pia or Manioc flour combined
with corn meal, half and half, makes a delicious
crisp corn bread. Boston Brown Bread made from
corn meul and barley flour will make a nice change
and be appreciated by your family occasionally.
AH this requires baking oftener than heretofore,
and means additional work in the household, but let
that be your share towards winning the war. A little
experience in the managing is necessary until adjust
mnt to the new way of living is achieved In your fam
ily, but little plans can easily be worked out. For
instance, If the housewife wishes to bake but onco
a day, she may start her family out with hot corn
bread for breakfast, making enough to serve the re
mainder cold at luncheon. Many people use no
bread for dinner, but If your family feels the need
of It, why not serve with the soup some of the ex
cellent wheatless crackers, such as Hoovcrettes, and
rice, and barley crackers, which Love's Biscuit Com
pany is turning out and which are on sale in our
stores? Vary this plan by serving hot muffins for
lunch sometimes and toasted next morning for
breakfast. When you have baked beans, make a big
loaf of Boston Ilromn Bread, which will keep over
the next day and Is very good served cold.
The co-operation and Interest of the family will do
much toward smoothing the way for the housewife in
her efforts. Ktliclency on her part met by cheer
fulness on theirs will pave the way to success. Make
the "growler" to be considered a "slacker" in your
family and have none of him.

The treatment of Interned Ger
mans in the United States is now
being used by German propagandists
In an effort to create unrest and dls
satisfaction among the American
people. Through their insidious
system of "grapevine" publicity, they
are endeavoring to create the im
presslon that the Interned Germans
are being fed on the. fat of the land
that while the American people are
being asked to save wheat, the Ger
man prisoners are being prodigally
fed on bread, pastries, and cakes
made entirely of wheat. Their rain

... Rumors Officially Denied
The Food Administration has of
ficlally denied the truth of such ru
mors. The Germans Interned In Am
erican detention camps are being
well fed, but there is absolutely no
ground for a rumor that food is being
wasted, or that conservation la Hot
being practiced. All civilian German
prisoners are subject to. and are be
lug mude to observe, all rules and
regulations of the Food AdiulnUtra
tioii . Their per capilo consumption
of wheat Is held within 14 pound
per week. No commodity Is wasted,
although consumption has not been,
and will not be, reduced to a Jxiliil
that would threaten the health of the
men and the women held at the tia
tent ion camps.
Garrison Ration to War Prisoners
of war receive the regular garrison
ration of the I'nlted States Army.
This is according to The Hague Con
vention. The same requirement ap
piles to all other nations. American
and allied prisoners in Germany
must receive the garrison ration of
the German Army.
