Hawaii's Lesson In The Day
Po'nts Made By Speaker In Memorial Day Address at Nuu
"In tills outpost of tho Pacific wo need Men; Just such whole-souled,
fearless Americans as went to the front in the sixties; and In tho nineties.
"Thoro are toda In tlio public schools of this Territory twenty-three
thousand bovs and girls, many of whom ate, from homo environment, alien
in IhniiKhi nnd teaching. Their only education In Americanism Is In tho
public schools and what they observe In their contact with American citi
zens. "Willi pntrlotlsm thero mint bo associated self-rolianco and Kelt-control.
Tho average American citizens of thoso Islands should nlso have such a
lilElUy-dov eloped h.enso of responsibility thut Instead of calling for help in
tho duties of civ administration, they will bo 8olfuDlclent and an old
nnd support In tho organization of an efllclent unit, capable of giving a per
fect accounting If thrown upon Its own resources.
"Just now we aro met with tlio welcome problem of adjusting the rela
tions of tho civilian and tliu soldier. In this instance tho sword Is not laid
aside for tho plowsharo, but they must bo used togcthor In promoting and
preserving National olllclcrlcy.
"Hawaii is no placo for American Inaction. Wo cannot havo McClel
Ian bodyguards though wo must havo trained and loyal men who have pr,ot
Ited by the dlsclplluo of tho drlllmastcr and organizer."
