The Wainiha Hui
The regular annual meeting of
the Wainiha Hui was held at the
Hui House on the beach at Wai
niha with a fair attendance of
those interested recently.
After the manner of that
Hui there was a luau at noon
which always helps to stimulate
the attendance and keep up the
interest. The usual reports were
presented and accepted, the va
rious ollicers were re-elected and
the annual dividend was declared,
$15 a share., about as usual.
This is perhaps the most suc
cessful and best conducted Hui of
its kind on the Islands. Very
largely because of its guaranted
income from the Kauai Electric
Co. for the water-power, on a
basis of$1500 a year for 50 years.
There were originally 71 shares.

Figures About the War
Our two years in the war cost
us about 2'2 billiondollars or more
than a million dollars an hour.
Starting at less than $100,(100 an
hour for the first three months,
the cost rapidly increased, until
during the last year it was nearly
'2 million an hour.
Germany spent :!) billion, the
British Empire :!8 billion, France
Austria Hungary '2, Jlussiu
18, Italy i;J, Turkey three, and
Japan and Greece one.
The American war dollar was
partitioned roughly as follows:
Quartermaster's department for
supplies, food, equipment, cloth
ing etc., a cents; the ordinance
department ill) cents; the paymas
ter's department 13 cents; air ser
vice 0 cents; engineers i cents;
medical department 2 cents; mis
cellaneous 2 cents.
A little over two million men
reached France and of these
1,000,000 saw active service at the
front. At the battle of St. Mihiel
550,000 Americans were engaged
which is more than live times as
many as fought on the northern
side in the battle of Gettysburg.
The American artillery tired in
this battle more than a million
shells, which is the most intense
concentration of artillery lire
recorded in history. The ilense
Argonne battle lastest forty seven
days, during which 1,200,000
American troops were engaged.
The biggest ship in the trans
port service was the "Leviathan"
formerly the Hamburg-American
liner the "Vaterland," the fast
est were the "Great Northern"
md the "Northern Pacific." The
Leviathan" landed 12,000 men a
month in France, and the "Great
Northern" made full return trips
iu lit days.
The largest response to the call
to the colors came from the cen
tral or mississippi Valley States
from North Dakota to Texas. The
poorest response came from the
eextreme East and the xtreme
west, New England on the one
side and California on the other.

Zohla Crosby, long associated with
the Famous I'layers-Lasky Cor

part. Miss Crosby, while as tal

women who appreciate that all
cannot be stars, else there would
be nobody to play the small parti.
She is therefore quite satisfied 1o

Ferguson in "A Doll's House."

special line that very few womt n
have attempted. She is an expert
iu the technique of continuity and
is in daily consultation with some
of the best known scenario wrilers
who constantly seek her advice
and never find her lacking in tl e
information they desire. She has
written several complete scenarios
herself and is a tireless worker
when she has a plot to weave into
a screen story.

Kunning the gamut of human
emotions from the pleasure-hunting
crowds that throng the Great
White Way to the grim battle for
existence in the Great American
desert, "Partners Three," the new
Paramount picture, starring Enid
Hennit, will be shown at the Tip
Top theatre next Saturday.
It tells the story of a girl who
longs to be removed from the dis
tasteful life of cabaret dancer and
who accepts a Westerner's pro-
posal of marriage as her salvat ion,
only to discover, too late, that the
man with whom she has linked her
life is a drunkard and a coward..
She is first seen in a mental
struggle, trying to maintain her
ideals amid surroundings of de
pravity; later she appears in a
tight against nature, lost on a
desert where she is confronted by
the immensity of space, the poison
of reptiles, The lack of water; and
still later she must battle against
society, trying to uphold the cause
of charity in the face of false
ideals of propriety.
It is one of the greatest emotion
al parts ever entrusted to Miss
Dennett, and gives her a wonder
ful scope for acting. It was de
signed to portray a woman con
fronted with all the great prob
lems of life the struggle against
nature for existence, the inward
fight for the establishment of
ideals and the relationship she
must bear to society and its laws.
The story was written by .I. G.
llmvki's. and the director was
Fred Nildo, husband of the star.
