"Twenty million tuns of, Amer
ica's Food Pledge." What doex
it mean? This pledge for the re
lief of Europe is just one more
wonder added to our year of
wonders. The signing of the
Armistice brought within our
reach starving millions long cut
off by the German submarines.
America acted at once and raised
her food pledge from 17 million
tons to 20 million tons. Withiu
a week after tlie Armistice was
signed the first consignments of
an emergency food order of over
l!00,000 tons had been dispatched.
We realize that every ton of food
than can be pushed through our
ports must be shipped, for there
is no real peace in sight until the
food situation is relieved.

Last Sunday the Lihue Juniors and
Grove Farm played the opening
ga-tne of the midwinter baseball series.
The game commenced at 2 o'clock
and was witnessed by a fair sized
Walter Schumacher pitched and
Willie Ellis caught for the Grove
Farmers, and Alex Akita pitched and
Hirota caught for the Juniors. Both
teams played exceedingly good ball
and made very few errors.
Neither team scored until the fourth
inning. The first run was Bcored In
this inning by the Juniors, and threo
more were chalked up In the eighth
when Frank Fernandez made a homer
with two men on nases. Three inure
runs were an.iexed in the ninth.

Births and Deaths in Hawaii
Statistics of the births and deaths
by races reveal two or three signifi
cant facts in regard to our population.
The Hawaiians for the year have G2S
births and 883 deaths a percentage
of 2.8 and 3.9 respectively of the total
number of that race.
. .Part Hawaiians on the other hand
have 981 births as against 275 deaths,
6 per cent and 17 per cent. Thisi Is
one more evidence of the decadence
of the pure Hawaiian, and a surpris.
ing indication of .the vitality of the
part' Hawaiian. At this rate it would
look as though he was coming up to
possess the land.
Next to the pure Hawaiian in low
vitality comes the Filipino, with 418
births and 3G4 deaths 2 per cent for
the former and 1.8 per cent for the
latter, showing that they are barely
holding their own, which is a poor
showing, considering that they are so
largely young people, in the prime of
life with no aged element to pull thi

WORLD'S SUGAR SUPPLY SHORT
It was expected by intelligent sugar
authorities that with the recovery of
transportation facilities at the close
of he war the large stocks of sugar
which have been held in Java would
be rushed into the European makets
and so flood them that present prices
would be materially reduced. But
it now transpires that when they went
