THE GARDEN ISLAND. TUESDAY, APRIL. 15, 1919
the Normal School
By Vaughan MacCaughey
The question has reached the De
partment of Public Instruction from
many parts of the Territory How
about the reorganization of the Nor
man School T
The answer is that just as soon as
the pressure of legislative and kin
dred activities is somewhat relieved,
the Department will turn its atten
tlon to the Normal School and Its
The opinion seems to be fairly Ken
eral throughout the Territory that the
Normal School is In need of some ra
dical changes, particularly along the
lines of relieving teachers and cadets
from a ceaseless routine of petty
It is generally recognized that cer
tain features of the Normal School
are excellent and unexcelled in Ha
waii. Other features can strengh
ened and improved, especially when
adequate room Is secured. For decad
es the Normal School, like the High
School, struggled along In over-congested
quarters and on a slender fi
The coming of the federal School
Survey, next fall, will afford an un
usually satisfactory opportunity to re
organize the Normal School.
A Tank Coining to Hawaii
At Chateau Thierry when the Ma
rines sang their way to victory and
the Germans finally became aware
that the Yanks were coming, there
were two men who did their part ef
fectively although unseen by either
their own men or the Germans. These
were Sergeant H. B. Paul and Private
W. G. Gill, crew of a whippet tank
which plunged ahead of the advanc
ing troops and rode down machine
gun nests and snipers hidden spies in
Jubilation was high at the Victory
Loan headquarters yesterday when
L. Tenney Peck, chairman of the Li
berty Loan executive committee an
nounced the receipt of a cablegram
from C. A. Farnsworth, manager of
Liberty Loan Publicity Committee in
San Francisco. In it he stated that
these two men who had been in the
thick of the bitterest nghtinK of the
war, would come to Honolulu with the
Identical tank which they piloted over
the French battlefields. This tank
will be used in the Victory Loan Cam
paign which opens shortly, and every
one in Honolulu will have a chance to
see at least one instrument of war
that their money subscribed to other
loans had paid for.
The tank and men sailed yesterday
from San Francisco on. the steamer
Manoa and should be here in time
next week for the opening of the
Letters were sent yesterday to all
previous subscribers to, the Liberty
Bonds, urging them to get behind this
Victory Loan and make it their "Grit
loan" to the nation. At a meeting of
the executive and campaign commit
tees yesterday morning at headquart
ers, final plans were made and the
stunts for the bond campaign outlined.
Jack Butler has promised some good
stunts and Emil Berndt, chairman of
the sales committee says he has a
trick up his sleeve that will make ev
eryone subscribe to a bond.
Mr. Business Man
Mr. Business man sits down to
breakfast In the morning and reads
his paper. He sees a long article
about a senatorial investigation," or a
congressional investigation or a guber-
National investigation that sameone
in some state of the Union is making,
to find out about the money that was
wasted in the war. Then he sees an
advertisement for the Victory Liberty
Loan. "Shucks," he says, "I'm not
going to invest in this loan. Why
should I? Didn't I give my money to
the other four four loans, and look at
the way it was wasted."
It's to the business man the Gov
ernment is now making an appeal for
support, because the government
needs his support. Stop and think
Mr. Business man. These investiga
tions are being made by men who
stayed snugly at home while our
soldiers were fighting. They didn't
see the fighting they didn't see the
need for the hurry. All they can see
is how much it cost, because they
weren't spending the money. If they
had may be it would be a different
story. These men would not have
been so snug in their homes if the
Government had kept the soldiers
snugly at home while they figured out
the minimum cost at which to send
the boys across to whip the Germans.
The Huns would hr.vo been over here
making the senators' and governors'
seats uncomfortable by that time. If
your house is burning down, you
don't stop to figure out the most eco
nomical way to put out the fire, do
you? You" get busy and put it out,
and if the piano and the rugs get
spoiled In the doing, why they get
spoiled. Perhaps if you had time to
think you would have taken the hose
and the . axe and started in at the
backdoor maybe instead of through
the front rocm where the piano was.
But you didn't have time to think.
Neither did the Government. It was
up to America to put out the fire of
war which was raging and threatened
to burn up our homes, and the homes
of the snug senators and state gover
nors) America went after the fire
and put it out. It cost a good deal,
and we didn't have time to stop and
think of the cheapest way to do It and
how to get the most for our money.
Now Uncle Sam has the bills to pay
and it's up to us to help him pay
them. This Victory Loan is to get
the money to pay them. At the same
time we are laying up something for
It isn't every bill the public can pay
that brings them In a return.
Get behind the Victory Loan. Men
and women, of whataver nationality
in Hawaii, send the Hunnish shadow
of debt which is hanging over your
country into the grave of oblivion. It
should not be hard to .put over this
Fifth Liberty Loan if we all work to
gether. It is a cold, hard business
deal and carries a special appeal to
the merchant and business man of Ha
waii. Stop a minute and think. How did
Hawaii manage to progress during the
war? Her tourist trade was stopped
because the ships were commandeered
by the navy. She stood a chance of
becoming a ' bunch of stagnant little
forgotten islands in the middle of the
Pacific Ocean. Did that happen? No,
her shipments of sugar and pineapples
continued irregularly, to be sure, but
nevertheless continued. Who helped
those shipments to continue- The
United States Government through
the ships that were loaned by the
The Government, stood by you dur
ing the war. Stand by the Govern
ment now after the war and help clean
up the bills caused by the war. Don't
forget your friend who kept your
homes intact at this time when peace
and prosperity once more begin to
come your way.
"Dictated But Not Read"
The new Superintendent of Public
Instruction is telling the following
story on himself. One of his first of
ficlal acts was to prepare a letter
which was sent to every member of
the Legislature. This letter explained
briefly the importance of public school
affairs, and placed the facilities of the
Department at the disposal of the
It happened that the Department
had a large slock of letter heads on
hand, benring the words "Dictated
but not read," and the letters were
Inadvertantly typed on this letter
When asked by one of the Legis
lators what this phrase .meant, Mr.
MacCaughey made the following state
"Our Department Is using rigid
economy In all matters and we were
using up old stock. Personally I am
very much opposed to this phrase, as
it represents poor business methods.
It should have been deleted from all
our stationary. Why it was ever
adopted by my predecessors I do not
know. It will never appear on station
ary which I order, for it does not con
form to the best business practice of
to-day. Every business man should
read his correspondence carefully and
thoughtfully. The phrase- "Dictated
but not read" is obsolete.

The following Board of Health let
ter is in response to inquiries in re
gard condensed milk as a substitute
for cows milk for Infants and children:
Honolulu, Hawaii, April 4, 1919.
Mr. J. M. Lydgate, .
Mrs. A. L. Andrews has asked me
to reply to your letter of March 2!th,
regarding the advantages of fresh
milk over condensed milk or vice
The following taken from Holt's
Diseases of Infancy and Chilcfhood, I
believe, answers practically all of
"The reasons both for the sum-ess
and for the failure of sweetened con
densed milk as an Infant-food are ap
parent from a study of its composi
tion. As a temporary food it is often
useful, first because It Is nearly ster
ile, but chiefly because the fat of the
cow's milk has been reduced by the
usual dilution to a point tit which un
infant with a very weak digestion can
bear it, while it furnishes an abun
dance of sugar; but it is low in pro
tein. Infants fed upon condensed
milk are often fat, but have, as a rule,
feeble resistance when attacked by
acute disease, especially of the Intcs-
nal tract. It is rare to see a child
reared on condensed milk who does
not show some evidence or rickets.
The prolonged use of condensed milk
is sometimes a cause of scurvy. Con
densed milk Is admissible for tempo
rary use during attacks of indiges
tion, for infants with feeble digestion,
especially in summer, for very young
Infants during the first two or three
months, or among the very poor, when
the cow's milk which is available is
not be used as a permanent food when
good, fresh cow's milk can be obtain
ed. In travelling it is often the most
convenient as well as the safest food
Inquiry at the various stores reveals
the fact that Borden's Eagle Brand
Condensed Milk Is not cheaper thin
other brands but, on the contrary, Is
higher in price than the same size of
can in some other makes. Its popu
larity is widespread and may be ac
counted for by the reputation the firm
has established by age, sanitation and
good service, and from the advertise
ments of their Tnilk as a baby food, as
well as the feature of having direc
tions for use printed on the label. I
think there is no question that con
densed milk is cheaper than cow's
milk in the long run, at least in the
Hawaiian Islands, andcertalnly so if
cow's milk . be produced under sani
tary conditions. But how about goat's
milk? Certainly this Is a source of
fresh milk available in these islands
and deserving of earnest considera
tion. Mr. J. M. Westage, Director of
the U. S. Agriculture Experiment Sta
tion, Honolulu, can furnish valuable
data on this subject if you care to in
The difficulty in providing families
in the Hawaiian Islands with cow's
milk fit for baby food is the high cost
of the milk combined with the climat
ic conditions which cause milk to sour
in a short time especially when not
properly cared for and refrigerated.
Many people find it impossible to take
ice and therefore the feeding of chil
dren on cow's milk (unrefrigerated
often for 24 hours) becomes a menace
Instead of a benefit to their health,
and .feedings of condensed milk,
freshly prepared, become preferable.
If several plantations could unite to
establish a milk depot in conjunction
with a day nursery for the babies of
the plantation laborers, all under the
supervision of a trained nurse, the
expense of the undertaking would be
more than compensated by tho bene
faction. Bulletins may be obtained from the
Children's Bureau, Department of
Washington. We are sorry that we
have none on hand to send you.
If we can be of further assistance
to you, let us know.
Very truly yours,
