The Cactus Corps is calling,
And will not let us rest,
But bids us all help her
In working for the best.
Join us, the Cactus Corps!
Whatever hardships we shall meet.
We'll work hard for what we bland.
As the Cactus Corps we greet.
At our last meeting, Miki gave ;i
five minutes talk on "Ciraciou:i in
Manner." She asked Kiyo a.ni
Duisy to give a report at the next
meeting about what ihey have been
doing as Girl Reserved. "Speed Oiii'
Republic" was chosen as our corps
Then we talked about the hilu-.
Miki reported that the Lverlasiiii ;
Corps had accepted our invitation
and we decided where to meet ami
what to bring. Kose Marie Silva
will give a talk on. "Impartial ii.
Judgment," at our next meeting.
We are all trying to win points
When we were starting on the hike
Miss Underhill said, "What nr.
those sticks for?' "Flags," said
Koichl. "Flags? les, signal
flags." My, we were all surprised
We all learned how to use them af

is very ambitious and will brim.;
the corps on its feet. A meeting
was held January 6. Elaine gav.
a five minute talk on health. She
drew a triange on the board with
the sides. Work, sleep and play.
She asked the members some im
portant questions and received the
answers Immediately. We chose the
Doxolbgy for our corps hymn. Miss
Underhill said this was one of the
best meetings that had been held
so far. -.'-
Fusa, our secretary and treas
urer, is a dandy one. She gets after
the girls and makes them pay their
dues. Some of the corps members I
are doing very well with their
points. Maggie is learning about
bandages. This means we will have
a good nurse in our corps. Sophi;;
is learning the- general service coda
and has started to make her fins.
The folks at home are surprised to
see her wig-wag, but signaling will
be of great use.
III. H. S. Girl Reserves Hike to
The Cactus Corps invited the Ev
erlasting Corps on a hike to the
dairy. Last Saturday our command
ers met Miki, Koichl, Kikuyo, Ade
le, Daisy and Emma on their way
to the Hananiaulu Btore where the
corps were to meet. From the store
Emma, following tho new railroad,
led tho way to the dairy.
Whon they reached this place they
sat down under the ironwoods to
become cool and fresh again. They
rested a good long while and were
playing a game when Miss M. Un
derbill said that she was pretty
hungry. The others felt pity foi'
her so they bUrted to build three
fireplaces. When the fires were
blazing, they toasted bacon and
"weenies," and boiled cocoa.
After eating they sang a few
songs. Daisy Comrades was persu
aded to sing a Hawaiian song; Kik
uyo und Koichi a Japanese duet and
Emma Kiilau, a Japanese solo. They
next took off their shoes and wad
ed, and climbed over the rocks
lookini: for shells and trying to
cinch ciabs. But the crabs were al
togethei too wise for them. Finally
Kikuyo and Emma caught one lit
tle one. Daisyi Adele and Emma pot
hack first and when Miss Underhill
tried to put on her shoe, she felt
a crab and screamed. Eirmt looked
very innocent, and then secretly put
the same poor crab in the other
Miss Underbill's shoe after she had
turned it up to be sure tliern was
none there. This commander took
it out und ran after Emma who
danced and clapped her hands at
a safe distance. Next we player! a
jackknife game, "pulling the peg."
The person who gets through first
wins and the last one has to pull
the peg. Miss N. Underhill won and
poor Miki was the last and had to
pull the peg with er teeth after
each one had pounded it into th3
ground. Emma said, "Poor Miki,"
after every hit, but everyone pound
They all went back to one of tho
fireplaces and lighted another fire
to toast their mashmallows. After
they had eaten all they could hold

THOUSANDS of orphans
throughout the Near East who

was a member of the Commission .
which has just returned to this
country after a two months' inves
tigation of conditions in the Levant,
"They look to us, for they have
no one else to look to," Mrs. Dur
yea declares. "We have been car
ing for them during the long years
of warfare, which has not yet ceas
ed in the Near East, and we must
continue while the present need
"Though much of our work has
been done and it will require just
a little more effort to complete the
task, the situation tjiis year makes
immediate and effective action nec
essary. Due to invasion and dis
turbed political conditions an addi
tional burden has been thrown upon
us, especially in Armenia, where
there are thousands of little tots
facing a dreadful death unless we
answer their appeal.
"I saw hundreds of children, so
thin and weak from under-nourish-
mcnt that they could hardly drag
themselves along the ground, crying
for something to eat at the gates of
Near East Relief orphanages in
Alexandropol and Erivan. The in
stitutions are already overcrowded,
and unless additional facilities are
provided, no more can be admitted.
"This means a situation so horri
ble that I hate to think of it, for
winter is coming, and winter in
Transcaucasia is latterly cold and
the starvation and disease that is
now carrying off scores every day
will grow worse.
"If more American women could
only see the sights that I saw, of
babies dying in their mothers'
arms ; of .youngsters who still need
a mother's care scratching in refuse
for a morsel of something to eat;
of others so shriveled up from
starvation that they more resem
bled mummies from some ancient
Egyptian tomb than anything hu
man; if they could only see these
sights, and worse, I know they
would see that America did not
forsake a task that up to this time
has been so wonderfully done." i
Mrs. Duryea'was the only woman
member of the Commission to visit
Transcaucasia, where she was the
guest of the various local governments.
they practiced signaling "Girl Re
serves," "Fnce Life Squarely," and
"Aloha." Then they went to see the
cows milked by electricity. The
girls saw how the milk was cooled
and then put into quart and piiit
bottles and covered, all by machin
ery. It was very interesting. On our
way home we sang songs and Miss
N- Underhill and Koichl led the .gay
and energetic procession.

rails on each side of the bridge are
one of the most artistic on Kauai.
