Thrills on Land and in
Air at Big Celebration
V Honolulu extends a hearty Invita
tion to residents of Hawaii, Maul, Kau
ai, Molokai and every other Island in
the territory, to attend the military
tournament and gymkhana to be held
on July 3, 4 and 5 at Kapiolant Park
by the Hawaiian department and
American Legion. It will be the big
gest and best celebration of the Glori
ous Fourth ever seen in the territory.
Aviation flights in battle formation
Roman and Cossack races, machine
gun exhibition drills showing machine
gun "outfits" going Into action as they
did in the Argonne, air maneuvers by
planes and observation ballona under
battle conditions, wrestling, guidon
races, mounted drill, wall scaling con
tests, fireworks and many other
"stunts" will make the entire program
one of continuous thrills.
In addition to the tournament, an
other attraction will be the presence
of six battleships from the Atlantic
fleet, which will be in Honolulu from
July 3 until July C. There will be
naval reservists aboard the big fight
ing craft of Uncle Sam's navy, and
.hey will play a prominent part in the
celebration, It is expected. The bat
tleships Include the Connecticut, New
Hampshire, Kansas, Minnesota, South
Caroline and Michigan.
The "big day" of the celebration is
Monday, July 5, although on Saturday,
July 3 there will be an Army-Navy
jaseball game at the park, starting at
1 p. m. Following the game, the All
Hawaiian polo team will play the 17th
On Sunday, July 4, exercises of a
patriotic and devotional nature will be
held. The "big show" starts Monday
morning, July 5, at 9:45 a m., and from
then until the last rocket clears the
sky in the fireworks display which will
end the gymkhana, there will be some
thing doing every minute.
That there will be big thrills other
than those created by antics of th
army aviators at the great military
tournament at Kaplolanl Park, July
3, 4 and 6, Is assured by the enrollment
of contestants for the guidon relay
race. This event Is to be held Mon
day morning, July 6, from 10:20 to
10:30 a. m.
In the recent horse show at Srtao
field Barracks two horses were killed
and their riders seriously Injured in
the guidon relay race. When this
event is repeated In Honolulu on July
5, ambulances and stretcher bearers
will be on hand to take care of any
casualties which may result.
Four teams of four men each will
compete. No. 1 of each team carries
the guidons from start to quarter-mile
post He then passes It to No. 3 on
his left side. No. 2 passes to. No. 3
at the halt-mile post. No. 3 passes to
No. 4 at three-quarter mile post, and
he rides to the starting point. A fly
ing start Is permitted to all but No. 1.
Guidon is to be passed wholly In rear
of each starting line.
There has been a great deal of dis
cussion in the public press in regard
to the rehabilitation and remuneration
of the returned soldiers, and this dis
cussion has left the average reader
very much at sea as to the merits of
the case and what is proposed to be
done. This article is for information
'here is a very general feeling'
among fair-minded people that the five
million or so men, who were under
arms during the war, are entitled to
some kind of deferred compensation
for their services. This is not so
much for their actual war service in
the field, as for the interruptions,
forced readjustments, and disappoint
ments incident to the service, and to
re-establishment in civil life. It Is
not as a reward for soldiering, but as
an aid In reinstatement, after the
soldiering Is over, that the demand for
a bonus arises.
Canada has recognised this claim,
and Is responding to It along the lines
of a wise constructive policy. She has
spent one hundred and fifty million
dollars in war service gratuities, be
sides loans to aid In land settlement,
and the re-education of ablo bodied as
well as disabled Boldlcrs.
8everal state, on their own account
have made generous appropriations
for their returned soldiers among
them Colorado, New York, Minnesota,
Oregon, Washington and North Da
kota. The recommendation of the Ameri
can Legion Is that a. cash bonus be
given with the alternative of any one
of the following substitutes. 1. Aid
In buying a home or a farm. 2. Paid
up endowment Insurance. 3. Voca
tional training, or 4. Land settlement
It the casli bonus Is elected it will
be $1.25 a day afu-r 60 days service.
Enth of the other alternatives will be
worth $175 a day.
Tho insurance benefit provides for
x payment, at the end of 20 years, of
a sum 3.71 times as large as the ranh
bonuH, as well as tho insurance pro
tection during the 20 years.
Under the farm or home aid benefit
and the vocational education benefit,
the basis of help will be $1.75 a day.
To carry out this scheme It Is es
timated that one billion six hundred
million dollars will be needed, and the
problem Is, where to get the money
that will be required.
The ways and . means committee
"proposes "victory taxes" for 1921, and
1922, estimated to yield about three
quarters of a billion dollars a year.
This will be a tremendous burden on
top of the other similar burdens which
the country has been called upon to
bear, and however popular the bonus
In its various forms may be, the pay
ing for it will not meet with general
