I Food Must be Saved I
The following special message was
read in all churches on Sunday last:
"Again in full confidence, I call upon
the American people to set aside Sin
lay and the week following for tho
consideration of American opportun
ity ( r renewed service and sacriilce.
Pledged to Feed
'Last Fummer when he militiry
situation was acute, we assured the
Intel allied food conference in London
iiiat whatever the war food program
ol til-.- Allies required, we were pre
pared to meet; that the conference
need not consider whether or not we
had the supplies, wc were prepared to
find them; we pledged ourselves by
the voluntary economy of our peonlj
to have the reserves in food to supply
all necessary. The ending of the war
does not release us from the pledge.
The same population must be fed and
until another season has passed, they
cannot feed themselves.
"Tho change in the Foreign situa
tion necessarily alters the details of
the food program because the freeing
of the sea from the submarine menace
renders accessible the wheat supply
of India, Australia, and tho Argentine
Tho total food demand upon the Unit
ed States is not diminished, however.
On the contrary, it is increased. In
addition to the supplying of these to
whom we are already pledged, we now
have the splendid opportunity and oh
ligation of meeting the needs of those
millions of people In the hitherto oc
cupied Territory, who are facing
actual starvation. Tho people of
Belgium, Northern France, Serbia, Bu
mania, Montenegro, Poland, Russia
and Armenia rely upon America for
immediate aid. We must also parti
cipate in the preservation of the newly
liberated nations in Austria; nor can
we ignore the effect oil tho future
world developments of the famine con
ditions among other people whom
we have recently released from our
enemies'. All these conditions mean
that upwards of two hundred million
people in addition to those we are
already pledged to servo, are now look
ing to ub in their misery and famine
Our appeal today is therefore larger
than the former appeal to the "War
Conscience" of our people. The new
appeal is the "World Conscience"
which must be the guiding inspiration
of our future program.
"The President of tho United States
has asked me to take charge for this
government of this work; to perfect
and -enlarge the arrangements for
foodstuffs to the population of Bel
gium and France now being released
and to organize and determine the
need of provisions to the liberated
peoples of southern'Europe to prevent
such a debacle as has taken place in
"The determining factor for the
success of such an enlarged appeal
will be the vivid consciousness in
every individual in each community
of obligation and opportunity. It is
the common recognition of obligation
that we now wish to create. Such an
Intelligent "World Conscience" in the
American people must he the main
dependence of the stricken countries
of the world until normal conditions
are once more restored.
"America, by her participation i
the war, has accomplished her object
ives of self defense and of vindication
the efficiency of a government
which the people, and the people only,
are sovereign. She has established
the foundation of government by the
people throughout the enemy coun
tries and this the real bulwark o
world peace. We have yet to build
011 these foundations. No governmen
or nation can stand ir its people ar
starving. We must do our part if th
world ho not consumed in a flame of
"Tho American people in this most
critical period of their history, have
the opportunity to demonstrate not
only their ability to assist in establish
ing peace on earth, but ulso their
consecration by self-denial to the
cause of suffering humanity.

toncher in tho development of tho
sense of right and wrong In the child.
Clarify, stimulate, develop the sense
of right and wrong In the children
under your tuition and you will be
making good citizens; and when you
make good citizens you are making
good patriots. That is the positive
side, the upward pull. But there is
tho negative side, the downward
pull, to bo guarded against: There is
laziness a constant outstanding
menace against the right a con
stant weight to pull a man down,
mental inertia, disinclination to work;
this Is one of tho greatest factors
working against efficiency, morality
nd good citizenship, and this is one
of the most pressing problems that
faces every teacher to wake them
up, and fill them with an enthusiasm
for work. 2. Ignorance, which is
darkness. The man who is groping
about in a state of ignorance falls an
easy prey to every corrupt enterprise,
and every vicious influence. Such a
man cannot bo a good citizen. 3.
Selfishness. The man who looks at
every interest and every issue from
the point of view solely of what there
is in it for him personally is not a
good citizen. Not what we can get
out of the world, but what we can
give to the world, this ought to be
in some fair measure our ideal. If
you can instill into the minds of your
children these fundamental and car
dinal teachings, and help them to
work them out in character, you will
go very far toward making them good
citizens and worthy patriots.

Mr. A. F. Kuudsen followed with a
very interesting address on "The
Civilization of Ancient -Jlawaii," in
which he made a surprisingly strong
case for the culture and character of
the ancient Hawaiian, a resume of
which will appear in this paper at a
Mr. C. A. Sahr, the county agent.
f tit Hiking on "Food Products i i ai.U
Conservation," emphasized the value
ol the work which had been done Uv
the schools in their school ,?ird'!iw
and enjoined them to ke 1 1 right or
in hte good work so well begun. The
time was coming when there would
be a big field for the farmer in these
Islands, for the individual farmer as
over against tho big plantation.
Largo tracts of land were soon to He
opened up on this Island.
The last -musical number 011 the
program was also one of tho very best
the duet "Pua Carnation," by Mrs
Blake and Mrs. Schemmelfennig o
Koloa. It was a very sweet Hawaiian
song, very charmingly rendered with
a guitar accompaniment.
The very last thing 011 the program
was a discussion on "Teaching the
Essentials of English," introduced by
the president, who called attention to
the widely prevalent ignorance and
lack of facility in the use of English
on tho part of a large proportion of
the graduates of the public schools
lie thought the teachers should do
their best to correct this condition of
things, and should especially cmpha
size the study of English.
..Mr. John Bush of Koloa, thought
that tho schools had done a great
deal of good work in this line; that a
great many of the graduates used vei
good English; it was a very uphill un
dertaking to impart correctness an
facility in any language with th
vitiating back pressure of the home
influences and surroundings.
Mr. McCluskey, in a humorous an
original way begged to make two or
three points, partly for tho benefit o
the teachers, and partly for the boned
of the Coinmissionors. One of these
was a plea for classic, high brow Eng
lish the English that had had the
concensus of good authority behin
it. "I no bin go," expressed th
thought clearly and definitely, an
grammatically, too, but it lacked the
authority of good usage. To he edu
cated wo must conform to the stand-
