THE GARDEN ISLAND. TUESDAY. NOV. fi, 1918-
Planning for United
War Work Drive
A meeting of the various repre
sentative interests and leaders from
all over the island was held In Lihue
on Tuesday to confer with Mr. F. C.
Atherton and Mr. Harold Rice, and
to formulate plans for the conduct of
the United War Workers campaign
now near at hand.
Mr. Atherton outlined the plan of
operations to be adopted for Hono
lulu and suggested that perhaps some
similar plan might suit Kauai. Some
of the saillent features of this plan
were that the women should be re
sponsible for the house to house can
vas of the residential sections, and
the men for the business sections;
"that card indexes were available from
which complete lists could be made
up of every section of the population,
andthese lists would be given to the
local canvassers for their use; that
the utmost uso would be made of four
minute speakers, not only at the mov
ing picture theatres, but also at restau
rants and clubs during the lunch hour;
in addition similar publicity work
would be done in the churches,
schools and other slmiliar organiza
tions; that careful records should be
kept and reports made, all of which
should be available for future similar
campaigns; that undue pressure
should not be used, it should be an
entirely voluntary giving with strong
emphasis on the educational value of
the same, and for this reason the
subscriptions should come from as
many and varied sources as possible,
and no small sum should be too small
to be accepted and receipted for.
The quota for the Islands was $215,
000, which was on the basis of eighty
cents a head for the population,
whereas the mainland per capita r.ite
was $1.70. It was expected however
that we would run way over the
eighty cent rate and probably reach
that of the mainland. The quota f r
Kauai was $20,000, the same as Ila
wail, while Maul's was $25 m)
The plantations were expected to
contribute on the bails of twenty
cents a ton of mtsar out put, and the
pineapple concerns one cent a case.
These contributions however, would
not be credited to the vaiiiM.s islands
as part of their quota, but would be
kept as a separate contribution.
Ways and Means
Following this interesting outline
of information and suggestion there
was a good deal of general discussion
as to ways and means and detailed
plans of operation, the final outcome
of which was that the campaign
should be conducted on practically the
same lines as the similar drives for
the Ued Cross and the Liberty Loans,
and through the same agencies in the
different, districts. It was however,
agreed that as far as possible the
subscriptions except in the case per
haps of large amounts, should be cash
down, and that Installment payments
chould be discouraged.

speaking, especially as In most ph'.eps
the speeches would go over the heads
of the audience and might be resented
as an interference. It was thou.'hi
wise to have at least one public me M
ing on the Sunday Inaugurating the
campaign, and that meeting should
bo on the Waimea side either at
Makaweli or Eleele. For that meeting
a special speaker from Honolulu could
probably be provided.
commander of the American forces in France
wants your loyal, unselfish help
Campaign, Nov. 11 to 18
It is to keep the morale of America's and her Allies troops at the top notch,
that the seven organization's work is considered as an ESSENTIAL. It will add
1 0 per cent to their efficiency and be worth 1 8 billions to the nation next year.
Because Bulgaria and Turkey have surrendered,
and Austria is wobbling, even though Germany
herself might be forced to her knees iu the next few
months, there will still be a gigantic work for
these same organizations iu keeping the men happy
and comfortable during the period between the
first real arnistice and the final departure from
Europe, which should be at least a year from now.
But we have had plenty of opportunity to know
Germany's ways. There is no reason to think that
she is in real earnest now in her protested desires
for peace. A little delay now, and she will be
ready again to light for another year; and another
year of bloody battles for our boys over there is
the thing to plan for.
So let us not sit back in fancied Security
and fail to do all we can for the soldier boys in France, whose hardships under the
best of conditions we can only dimly realize.
And all we can do calls for an unreserved rmn2y contribution to the great cam
paign that is being waged all over the country.
Of the big sum that is to be raised, Hawaii's qnota is
$215,000, or nearly one dollar
for each man, woman and child.

And it means that every man,
woman and child must forget his
own needs, his own-desires, his own
pleasures; it means that each one
put his whole mind and soul into the
raising of this great sum until the
last dollar is paid in.
