aliout it for a couple of years or inure, and
then j;eltiiir ready for a couple more. In eou
sc(iience there are hundreds of thousands of
orphaned children in France, dependent parti
ally or wholly on charily for care and support.
Our children are saved from .this fate because
of what their fathers did. Our children live
in comfortable and happy homes, while (heirs
face waul and neglect. Surely it devolves on
us to help them meet the cost of this great
sacrilice; and it is surely up to us to see to it
that these fatherless war orphans are kept
from want and suH'crin".

LETTERS FROM THE PEOPLE
Kditor. Harden Island Thi' historic
event of .Monday was fittingly cele
brated in Lihue yesterday (Tuesday I
with the single exception of ttu; aid
omission of any prayer. tpon the
occasion of ever', patriotic meeting
wlu.'h has been held of late in thj
Armory we were taught to pray to
fjoc! fit- heli in oar double; alsi
thrnuphoul the ilreadful ordeal t tie
clergy have expressed themselves
that the wiir would bring a new re
avoii'i i-pii'it into our lives And ye:
as soon as our prayers tiro answered
all thouKht of rendering thanks to
tlie Almighty evidently vanished. Two
ministers were in attendance, and one
would think that although this mat
ter had been overlooked by the com
mittee in their hasty arrangements,
the righteous spirit of the clergy
wouid (and should) have moved them
in their duty to seek an opportunity
to enable the people to publicly offer
up a fervent p raver of thinks.
A sequel might be mentioned. At
Kilauea a long programme of outdoor
sports, etc. had been arranged, but
the priest refused to t tke any p.:rt in
the same unless the time for starting
lie postponed till after !l o'clock in
order that the people might not neg
lect their duty to Cod, and aceoiiiing--ly
a service of thanks was held before
the day of rejoicing started. This Is
truly the guiding spirit .
Lihue has always supposed to have
held itself formost in religious acti
vities, but in this, the greatest (lay in
the world's history, it has proved
itself (o be sadly found wanting.
Doubtless thanks will be rendered
"in the usual course" next Sunday at
Church : a week's afterthought, which
cannot be said to be a very responsive
spirit for the great blessing He has
bestowed upon all nations. Let us
di play more than a mere hike -warm
and Sunday worship and always re
member to obey the words, "But give
thanks to Cod, which giveth us the
victory through our Lord Jesus
Christ." 1 Cor. la-."?.

reckoned to "go over the top," but

Tlie following translation of a let
ter from Marshal Joffre will speak for
itself on behalf of the fatherless child
ren of France:
"May I beg you to express our
thanks to the members of the Ameri
can committees for their touching
souvenir on the occasion of the anni
versary of the Battle of the Marne. 1
cannot resist the pleasure of again
expressing to you the recognition of
all France for the generosity with
which America has come so spou
tuir.eouidy to the amdstance of our
widows and orphans.
I understand the new effort which
you propose to undertake now in be
half of our Society. 1 commend it
with all my heart. It will !e in truth
a mighty consolation and precious
encouragement for our soldiers to
know that, thanks to you, even though
they shall succumb in the glory of
the field of battle, their wives and
their children will not te abondoned.
This assurance should give to
them even unto the end, the neces
sary strength to force victory and
draw closer yet the sacred bonds
which already unite them to their
new companions in arms. Thus shall
be sealed for all time the brotherhood
of the two groat peoples of America
and of France.
Very sincerely yours,
Nurses at Firing Lines
Surgical teams are sent out from
the base hospitals almost up to the
tiring lines. In each team "there Is
usually a nurse, two doctors and an
orderly. For three weeks, at a time
these nurses are on unrelieved duty
in unhealed shacks that are bitterly
cold in winter and always exposed to
enemy shells and explosives. It is
said that six thousand nurses are con
stantly in the zone of fire.
"Being a head nurse isn't an easy
job" when single units are so mixed.
They lat-k unity. A single hospital
unit may be composed of nurses from
the I'nited States, Canada, Berlnuda,
Scotland, Kngland, Ireland, Sweden
and France. Some are college grad
uates, some have been educated by
experience and some have little edu
cation. When ten training schools
are represented in a single unit there
are ten different ways of puttim; a
sheet on a bed.
The Y. V C. A. has established
hoaihiuarters and club rooms for the
nurses in fourteen base hospitals with
six additional requests in. In some
places the club rooms are part of a
building designed to house both the
Y..M.C.A. and Y.YV.C.A. In other
places the Nurses' Centers or "huts"
are on tlie grounds of the base hos
pital or near them, often built by the
lied Cross but furnished by the Y.W.
C.A. and manned by the Y.W.C.A.
These headquarters are always open
even welcoming nurses helping on
midnight duty. Frequently whole
units appear for a cup of chocolate
while waiting for a big convoy of sick
and wounded. One of the nurses
who had been 011 duty from 7:. 10 a.m.
to 9:311 p.m. ran in for ten minutes
of refreshment. As she drained her
cup of tea she rose smiling and said.
"Now I ran go back and forget all
Some of the hospital units are
settled in hotels formerly used as
fashionable watering places. The
tu:nis courts and polo grounds are
theiefore put to good use for games
ami sports in tine weather.
There was a special evening service
at the Lihue Hawaiian church on Sun
day evening. Mr. Kidman delivered
an address on "The Challenge ot the
Spirit of the Churches." The singing
as always in Hawaiian churches was
very good.. Mr. A. tl. Kaulukou presided.
CHRISTMAS - PARCELS FOR THE

American Boys Know No
Fear, Says Eye-witness
Paris, (By mail) A new story of
the American fighting man's reckless
disregard of danger is told by Wilbur
M. Wilson, a Baptist clergyman from
Colorado, who took part in the great
drive from Chateau-Thierry to Fismes
"With my own eyes," says Mr. Wil
son, "I have seen our boys steal out
to a frog-pond in No Man's Land, calm
ly divest themselves of their uniforms
and dive into the cool waters, with
German snipers not a hundred yards
away in their trenches. The Ameri
can boy knows no fear, and the great
er the number of casualties in his
regiment the greater is his resolve to
make the Hun pay the price. His
morale increases every time a com
rade falls with German bullets in his
Mr. Wilson has seen much of war
work of the various organizations en
raged in performing it at, and behind
ho fi,vhiin:j lines, and has personally
been engaged in the precarious work

to carry hot drinks and smokes to

two days except their iron rations.

The I'nited States Food Administra
tion has notified all state and county
food administrators to investigate the
butter situation 'in their respective
communities. The Government has
commandeered CO percent of all butter
held in cold storage throughout the
country for the use of our armed
This action creates an appearance
of. if not an actual shortage, which
has a tendency to advance prices, in
fact the temptation is very strong to
advance prices in violation of the
rules and regulations of the Food Ad
ministration, under which all butter
must be sold.
Special License Regulations No.
20 A, dated August 22, 191S, state that
"Cash and Carry" stores profit shall
not exceed 5 cents per pound. "Credit
rind Delivery" stores profit shall not
exceed 0 cents per pound.
All violations of these regulatit ns
must be reported to (he IT. S. Food
Administration. A rigid inspection of
butter prices, locally, has just been
completed by the county agent.
