THE GARDEN ISLAND. TUESDAY, NOV IS, 1919
A Distress Call
Census of 1920
The "Survey" reports in outline a
conference of women pliyscians In
New York lately, and among other
things voices a pathetic distress call
from women In the matter of dress.
It Is more important that women
should havo tho proper physical de
velopment than that men should, since
a woman's physical development more
immediately affects the coining gen
eration. And they cannot have that
ideal development so long as they are
hampered and constrained by the
clothing that they are compelled to
wear. And she is practically compell
ed to wear them whether she wants
to or not. She is in bondage, not to the
woman dress-maker of her own kind,
but to the man-controlled manufac
turer and dealer. "Our clothes," she
cries, "that ought to have been our
own concern, have been taken away
from us by the great trust of manu
facturers, male manufacturers, and we
all know that the clothing trade is one
of the biggest trades in this country
today, and that we don't have any say
in running it."
The instance Is cited of a girl, in a
country town, who longo for a pair of
sensible shoes, and she goes to the
two or three department stores in
town, and can't find a single pair of
low-heeled ones, so she is forced into
buying high-heeled shoes, and feels
very bad about it. But as she takes
them she gives the dealer a piece of
her mind on the shoe question. "What
are you doing? Do you know you are
throwing the whole interior arrange
ment of the women of America out of
plumb? That you are debilitating the
race? What do you mean by It?"
And the poor dealer, as he wraps up
the shoes, is overcome with silence
and sheepishness. But do you sup
pose he will lay in a stock of low
heeled shoes? No, of course he won't
He knows that he could't sell them.
When women really want low-heeled
shoes, and comfortable corsets, and
loose fitting garments, they will get
them. Men have long since learned
that what a woman wants she is going
to get, and you might as well let her
have it. Farthermore, business has no
deliberate plan or policy of making a
Sugar Shortage ! Notice to Teachers
With the appointment of the Hon.
Richard C. Lappin as the Supervisor of
the Census of 1920 for Hawaii, and the
arrival of Mr. Lappin in Honolulu
recently, It may be said that the tak
ing of the national census, so far as it
concerns the Territory, Is well on its
As far as Kauai is concerned, Mr.
Lappin has just appointed C. S. Dole,
who held the Bamc position in 1910, as
Special Agent in charge of the census
enumeration for the County, of Kauai,
and applications are now being re
ceived for the positions of enumerators
for the County. The applications must
all be In Mr. Lappin's hands by Dec.
There are sixteen divisions of the
County, including Niihau, each of
which will probably require an enumer
ator; though where the divisions are
small, it 'may be that one enumerator
will be able to look out for more than
one of them.
Of the enumerators who served In
1910, about half have left the County.
Of the balance, the greater part will
doubtlfEp be able to serve again, so
that there will be only eight or ten
new appointments to be made. The
compensation of the enumerators is
$5.00 per day.
It is expected that Mr. Lappin will
pay an official visit to Kauai in a week

"Facts About Sugar" accounts for
the present shortage of sugar sub
stantially as follows: t
It is a world shortage. The world
production is over two millions tons
short of what it was in 1914. Which
means a shortage of that two millions
plus the large normal increase in con-i
sumption during the Ave years. Amer-1
ica Is a party to this short production, I
and increasing demand. I
This world shortage has been very
much accentuated in America by the
almost ravenous demand for sugar. As
a reaction, doubtless, from the forced
economics of war conditions everyone
has been using more sugar. Our pres
ent consumption of sugar is at the
rat3 of 92 lbs. per person per year,
which is higher than anything ever
known in the history of the country.
Last year it was 73 lbs.
Another reason for the abnormal
consumption of sugar is that it is
about the cheapest thing we can buy
In the way of food. With bacon at
62V4 cents a pound and sugar at 8
cents, there can be no question as to
which is the best buy. Sugar is ab
normally cheap, and especially is it
abnormally cheap In the United States.
In Europe the wholesale price of re
fined sugar is from fifteen cents up.
In the Orient it is thirteen or fourteen
cents. With us It has been ten cents.
Naturally more or less of it flows away
to these high-priced markets, and to
that extent increases the shortage at
The advent of prohibition has large
ly increased the consumption of candy,
Ice cream and soft drinks, of which
sugar is the substantial base. This all
means that for some time to come
sugar prices are going up, and that a
period of phenominal prosperity is at
hand for these Islands.

One of the best ways to judge a tire is to weigh it, for mile-
age depends in a large measure on the quantity of quality
materials. Of course weight might be due to 'many factors -that
do not improve quality, such as unnecessary wire in the
beads, or weight-giving compounds. But once assured that
only quality-giving materials : are used, then weight is an
excellent guide to durability.
In selecting tires, therefore, have your dealer weigh the different
makes you are considering'. You will find that Michelin Universal
weigh 12 to 15 per cent more than the average, the percentage varying
with the size of the tir. - .
This extra weight, due to extra'
quality rubber and fabric and
no one questions Michelin Quality
means that you have a right
to expect extia mileage from
