GETTING TO FRONT
Hawaii now has stalled in tho (II
roctlon of fully partclpatlU'r In tho
great world war. There h.-.s boon
some delay in motion, but this can bo
overcome by rapidity of action. Th
tardiness was caused by the orlgln.il
quota of enlistments having been ex
ceeded. The military authorities hero
thoucht It unfair that tho territory
should do more than tho usual and
In addition to federalizing the mili
tia an order has befen Issued for mo
bilizing 4336 of those eligible undor
tho draft laws. War authorities say
thero will bo two full regiments tak
en Into tho regular service.
Those called to tho colors will on-
ter training camps In Hawaii. Tho
draftees will bo drilled at Fort Arm
strong. No plans havo been formu
lated for bringing any portion of tho
men to tho mainland for training: Of
ficials say thero are a number of
places In Hawaii where proper care
can bo given them. In addition it Is
pointed out that tho climate ot tho
territory is better suited to them.
No Intimation is given as to tho pe
riod necessary for training. Tho old
adage is that a year Is required to
mako a soldier. That time has been
materially abbreviated slnco tho
United States entered the presont
Over here tho men aro given six or
seven months ot intensive drilling and
then sent over seas to Franco, where
thoy are put through another course
of sprouts. Later they aro moved up
toward tho front and placed anions
the reserves. In this way thoy grad
ually becomo accustomed to actlvo
work and are prepared for the firing
line when the time arrives."
If the need for more American
troops at the front should grow
greater It Is likely tho Hawaiian boys
will bo started acroas within six
months. This is "especially true of

sent out for them to begin training.
SMALL WORD CAUSES PILIKIA

Instead of "shall" In tho laws of Haw-
