and we are doing well, but more is needed now
and will be needed later. A mere pittance is

It. Ml lAtcnsioiis are going to put us to an
etrriiie sH-ain. Theoretically the draft regit
lalioiis ale fair and eipiable, but practically
they do not always distribute the burden eipial
l.v among the people. The reasons are evident
when pointed out.
In Hawaii our only business is agriculture.
We have never had a surplus of laborers. Our
islands are remote, and it is dilliciilt to get
labor to remain here. Iii ihe mainland there
are many small towns and cities where there
is an abundance of surplus labor which can

every I i si ii, t . I.nt in Hawaii vv r have a sparse
ly sen led rui al region ami no surplus labor to
draw from. We ale expected to keep up our
piodin lion of sugar ami pines, as they are
liecessary for the feeding of our coillilrv. It is
evident we have a big job ahead of us. and it
means that everybody must buckle down to
work to their maximum abilitv.

college students not under eighteen years of
tige shall be eligible for private enlistment in
this corps. Along with their regular educa
tional training they shall receive such military
training as the War Department stipulates.
"The purpose of the plan is to provide for
the very important needs of the army for high
ly trained men ;is ollicers, engineers, doctors,
chemists and administrators of every kind.
This is a war in which soldiers are not
only marksmen, but also engineers, chemists,
physicists, geologists, doctors, and specialists
in many other lines. Scientific training is
This new departure in military training is
important from two angles:
1. It oilers the young man an acceptable
outlet for his patriotic zeal, lie will feel that
he is not a slacker but is rendering just that
kind of service which his country most appre
ciates. '2. It checks premature ami precipitate
enlistment for active service by combining mili
tary. dt ill and instruction with college curri
culum and this provides for a body of trained
leaders and specialists who both, during and
after the war, may meet the nation's needs.
l!egular uniforms, including hats, shoes
and overcoats, will be furnished by Ihe govern
ment. The Students Army Training Corps is al
most as quick a road to actual service in the
field as enlistment in the regular army, for in
neither case could the young man expect to be
sent to France until after a lengthy period of
An executive secretary of the Association
of American Colleges has beef appointed and
is now in Washington furthering the interests
of the plan. A nation-wide campaign is being
conducted in the interest of the scheme, and the
large success of it is assured.
0-T (Jl IT SCHOOL
WE AIM! in receipt of circular letters from
the Administration in Washington urg
ing the undiminished importance of keeping
the educational institutions of the country at
their highest level of elliciency, and of seeing
to it that "no boy or girl shall have less oppor
tunity for education because of ihe war."
rhere is a natural and commendable pa
triotic tendency on the part of very many
boys and young men to cut out further edu
cation, at least for the time being, ami get
into the actual service as near the firing line
iut it may not be forgotten that the tiring
line service is not the only line of service, nor
perhaps even the most important. Thereare
many other lines of service that are absolulely
indispensable to the conduct of the war, and
oftentimes prerequisite to that at the Front.
Trained engineers, electricians, transportation
experts, doctors, surgeons, accountants the
list could be extended indefinitely are just as
necessary for winning the war as are the fight
ers in the trenches.
These specialists must romp from the
schools, and it is immensely important that the
supply of them be kept up by keeping up our
schools in elliciency and numbers. The boy
who can possibly go to school and complete
his education ought by all means to do so in
Ihese days id' war, more even than in the days
of peace, since he is thereby lilting himself for
the best and inosl ellicienl service of his coun
try. There are multitudes of young men who
can be trained for the gun lire work of the
trenches, but the supply of voting men
can meet (he requirements for -ex perl servin
very limited. Accordingly the boy or young
man who is on the road to this sort of expert
rnicicucy is a ten talent man and he can't
afford to throw away his advantage, and his
country can't afford lo let him throw il avv.u.
Furthermore the lime is coming when we
will all rciiirn to I he comlil ions of peace, when
the title, the machine gun, the trcm-h tool ami
the gas mask will be put away in Ihe arsenal
or ihe museum, and the trench lighter will be

cllirirmy lli.ll he has ga i 1 will be so much
