In connection with the public as
semblies out to hear Porf. Harper at
Kilauea, Makaweli and Lihue last
week, the members of the U. S. Boys
Working Reserve and of the Hawaii
Junior Working Reserve on Kauai
were awarded their medals, the cere
monies being in charge of Mr. Jay O.
Warner, director of the Reserve for
the county of Kauai.
It was a fitting tribute to the boys
and girls that they should receive
their medals under the thrill of Prof.
Harper's-report from the front. For
were they not an important part of
the forces back of the fighting lines
and did not the U. S. Government
recognize them as .such? Surely, and
not only so but they are invaluable
leaders in the vast work of recon
struction, in the immense business of
feeding a famished world!
Mr. Warner, before awarding the
badges, explained briefly the history
and rules of the organization on the
mainland and in Hawaii. On the
mainland the Boys' Working Reserve .
Is over two years old and confined to
highschool and regularly employed
boys between the ages of 16 and 21.
So successful has the movement been
that many states have organized Jun
ior Divisions, being careful to comply
with the regulation principles of the
Child Welfare Bureau.
In Hawaii, so many boys and girls
responded to the appeal that it was
thought wise to organize the Hawaii
Junior Working Reserve, under local
management, and adapted to local
conditions. Girls may not be ad
mitted to the Federal Division which
is officially organized under the De
partment of Labor and known as the
U. S. Boys' Working Reserve. In ad
dition to the medal awarded to the
boys of the Senior division, a service
bar is awarded to those who worked
the entire summer vacation period,
and their names are enrolled at Wash
ington. The Juniors however seem pleased
to be recognized by the territorial
government and with their medal,
which was especially designed by Mr.
Warner as executive secretary, ami
approved by Mr.. W. R. Farrington.
territorial director of the Reserve.
The badge was manufactured by the
same company making the senior
badges for the federal government.
So important has the Reserve be
come before the signing of the arm
stice that the Reserve designed and
adopted a special uniform of the same
cut and color of the Army uniform
and approved by the War Department.
Whether this will now be worn while
the army is demobilizing is not de
finitely understood as yet.
It is officially estimated at Wash
ington that the members of the Re
serve by their extra work last summer
produced enough food to provide a
million people for one year. Hawaii
comes in for her share o this as the
amount of pineapples canned and
sugar cane planted by the boys and
girls last summer has swelled Ha
waii's output very considerably and
sugar planters and pineapple men, at
first rather skeptical about the wis
dom of bothering with such an orga
nization of Hawaii's youth, now warm
ly praise it. At Makaweli, camp Bald
win, alone enough cane was planted
by the boys to produce normally 1000
tons of sugar.
The Reserve is to bo conducted
another year, Jan. 20th being the date
of the national enrollment. Mr. G. A.
Young, of Nuuanu Y. M. C. A. has
been appointed executive secretary.
