Occasionally a really big piece of
news "gets by" the best ot report
ers. And certainly one big piece
of news slipped right here in Li
hue. Sandy Hutton can't understand
it. Neither do we. We wouldn't
blame Sandy much it he told us he
didn't want our valuable paper any
longer. The piece of news should
"Last Wednesday morning a fine
baby boy was born to Mr. and Mrs.
A. Q. Hutton at Niumalu. Mother
and son and father are doing well.
But some way or another that
news wasn't printed. Every member
of the staff congratulated the happy
parents but forgot to do it publicly.
We'll do better next time, Sandy.
JAPAN MAY FIGHT
IF NOT ALLOWED TO
EXPAND, SAYS BUNKER
"With Japan's population increas
ing at 700,000 a year and the doors
of Australia, New Zealand, Philip
pine islands, Canada and the United
States closed to oriental immigra
tion that nation is confronted with
perhaps the most serious of the
world's problems," asserted Dr. F.
F. Bunker, of the Pau-P.-cific Union
in his lecture last evening on the
subject, "An Important Factor in
the Inter-relation of Pacific Peo
ples," at the Y. M. C. A., Honolulu.
If the United States and the
British Empire refuse to consider
the problem of Japan's forced ex
pansion, then it is but natural that
she should fight, Dr. Bunker said
"There are now in Japan proper
from 60 to 70 million people and
they are increasing at the rate of
about 700,000 annually. During the
life-time of many of us, Japan must
find place for 25,000 new people.
But what is the situation in Japan
right now with respect to the rela
tion of population and food supply?
"The great bulk of population is
centered in the agricultural area,
about one-sixth of the total area of
Japan. According to the latest Jap
anese year-book, there are five and
a half million families engaged in
farming, comprising about forty mil
lion persons. Each of two millions
of these farmer families is farming
an area less than an acre and a
quarter in extent. With another
two million families the acreage of
each does not . exceed two - and a
half acres. Moreover there are three
and a half million of these families
who do not own their own land,
but rent, paying 47 per cent to 55
per cent of their crops for the use
of the land.
What's Japan Going to Do.
"With Japanese population increas
ing at the rate of 700,000 a year and
China's population increasing at the
rate of eight million a year and with
present populations in these coun
tries almost at the starvation point
what are they going to do? What is
to become of them?
"New Zealand says they can't come
there. Australia won't permit them
there. They can't enter the Unit
ed States. If they begin flocking
, to Mexico in many numbers, an aw
ful fuss will be made. You know
what a furore it created a few years
ago when a handful of Japanese was
discovered at Magdalena Bay. What
is to be done?
"I am not attempting to answer
these questions; I am concerned
now with only stating the case.
However, I don't want to say that
the answer won't be reached if New
Zealand and Australia and the Brit
ish Empire and the United States,
all stand aloof saying, "It's none of
our affair what becomes of you.'1
America Must Go Slow.
"When a business firm faces a crsi
is in its affairs because of untoward
conditions, one should not be too
harsh In one's criticism and condem
nation if the managers of the firm
seem somewhat sensitive as to their
rights and privileges under the law
or if htey appear somewhat over
zealous in taking advantage of ev
ery opening that appears to us to
be self-centered. We must not for
get with them their whole future
is at stake, while our's isn't. So we
can well afford to be patient and
magnaimous and very slow at tak
ing offense or in giving offenso
through harsh criticism.
"The peoples of the Pacific, partic
ularly those living In Australia, New
Zealand, Canada, the Phillippines,
Hawaii and the mainland states,
nred to be informed about these
powerful forces which are at work
fashioning the destiny of our peo
ples and races. With a clear un
derstandings of our brother's prob
lems and difficulties will come sym
pathy for him ord a willingness,
to help him in reaching the right
solution. One of the functions, sure
!y of the Fat-Pacific Union is that
of helping open the minds of men
to these significant things and of
co-operation with all other agencies
working to this end." Nippu Jijl,
Hev. Royal A. Hall, of Koloa, as-'
slsted by Mrs. A. W. Waterhouse '
and Secretary and Mrs. Nell Locke, !
organized the Lawal Sunday-school ;
last Sunday afternoon. Seventy-five j
scholars and six visitors constituted
the attendance at the initial meet-
ing. Mr. Hamamoto and Mrs. Tak-
abash! have been the local boosters. I
An enrollment of 100 is expected
within the next month. j
The purpose of these organiza
tions is not alone to teach the prin- j
ciples of the Christian religion but j
the work is all conducted in Eng
lish, this affords another opportunity
to increase the scholars' use and !
knowledge of that language und to j
instil loyalty to the country of which j
he is to be a future citizen.
The establishment ot similar
schools is contemplated at other
points on the island.
RUBBER MAN MAKES TOUR
Edward G. Wilmer, president of
the Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co.,
Akron, Ohio, has just returned from
a "swing around the Goodyear cir
cle" In which he studied the com
pany's production activities outside
Summarizing operations in the
rubber industry during the past half
year, Mr. Wiliner declared in an in
terview on his return to Akron
which has been released on the coast
by A. F. Osterloh, vice president of
the California Goodyear company to
day his conviction that the foun
dations are being soundly laid for
future stability and progress.
"Our sales during the summer
have exceeded our expectations of
last spring," he Baid. "There was
a larger use of automobiles than
we had thought there would be, com
pelling our production of tires to
go with as high as 85 per cent of
its peak volume. Part was due
undoubtedly to the fact that there
hadn't been the normal buying dur
ing last fall and winter. Neither
consumers nor dealers did any
stocking up this summer, and they
are still buying carefully, from hand
"We can reasonably expect, based
on the summer's experience, that
the volume of business in post-war
years, should exceed this year's bus
iness. And this summer's busi
ness has been, all things considered
"At the Canadian plant at Toron
to," he reports, "they have complet
ed their re-adjustment to. new con
ditions and are moving ahead. Pro
gress is being made in the domes
tic field and even more encouraging
progress in export.
"All along the Pacific coast we
find business conditions were bet
ter than in the country generally.
They have felt the readjustments
much less than in the country gen
erally . They have felt the read
justments much loss than we have
in the east.
"I was more than pleased over
the new Goodyear factory at Los
Angeles. It is a wonderful plant,
physically, ideally adapted to serve
its purpose, und it is serving admir
ably a most wo-'.derful territory.
The California factory reached a
peak production of 4100 tires a day
this Bummer. A large volume of
business that will use proportion
ately more of its facilities will great
ly improve its showing, but already
it is meeting the demands upon it,
both from the standpoint of pro
duction and current earnings.
"In Arizona, where the company
has its cotton plantations, I found
a section of America which had gone
through great reverses during last
winter and spring, but which is now
showing real signs of revival.
"They had in the Salt river val
ley -80,000 acres in cotton last year.
They had only been In the busi
ness of raising long staple cotton
for three or four years, and were
not prepared to carry them thru
a year in which the prices of their
product slumped Bubstanttially under I
the cost of production.
"Although this year's crop was i
hypothecated, and a great deal of j
it Is still unsold, they planted G5,-1
000 acres of cotton this year, along
with other crops, convinced that the i
market would turn in time, and that j
cotton had come to stay in the
"I was passing through there just '
about the time that the recent rise !
occurred in the price of short sta
ple cotton and a corresponding rise
in the price of long staple cotton, ,
together with actual buying and sell-j
ing contributed much to a generally (
better business tone in tho valley.
"It is very reasonable to expect
that the first substantial movement
of our crops may bo expected to
provide a healthy stimulant to gen
eral business throughout tho country."
