convention of the Hawaiian depart
ment at Luko Field, last Thursday
This is tho first time that a mem
ber of the post outsido of Honolulu
has been elected department com
mander as It has always been a
sort of an unwritten law of tho Le
gion that the department comman
der should be a member ot Hono
lulu post owing to the fact that tho
department headquarters are there
and all the business of tho depart
ment Is carried on there.
This coming year is an important
ono in the history of the Legion
and it was understood that strong
leadership would be needed to car
ry forward the ideals and purposes
of the body. With this purpose in
mind the convention decided that
it was necessary that tho proper,
man bo elected no matter where his
residence was and the selection ot
the local man was the result.

The news that tho Hawaiian Pine

considerable surprise hero this
It had been the impression on Ka
uai that tho Baldwin interests In
tended to produce something in the
line of a model cattle ranch on
the Island, as already considerable
money has been spent on this pro
ject. Although pines are now being
grown on the island In small lots,
and are fairly successful It was
thought that this was merely a sec
ondary matter, the cattle ranch be
ing the prime consideration.
Now comes the announcement that
the Hawaiian pines may put about
25,000 acres Into pines, but will
ship the fruit to Honolulu tor can

nouncement comes another that the
