WE MUST LEARN TO REALIZE
An Editorial by MRS. FRANCIS GREEN, of the Women's Committee of the Food Commission
npHERE u an old saying with
. A- too. Everyone quote tt at one time oc an Jthcr, and perhaps atther timet we forget about
it, but no one ever thinks of denying the truth of it It is a statement of fact obvious to common' intel
ligence. : . '.. .- v . ,' .
. Why, then, I wonder, is It so hard for us to go the logical step further and realize the equally
obvious fact that we can't eat cake every day in Honolulu and have an undiminished supply of sugar
for shipment abroad? , .'',-''.;--''.'' -' - 'v
Is it because women have
mesne usage ana nave never reaiiy tnougnt at au about the.,vatt organued indu tries . and the , worjd
wide commerce that are involved in keeping them supplied with meat, suear, flour and btheir stapte
articles of food?. In times of peace
dustries revolve quietly enough, so far as most of Uj are concerned; there is always plenty at hand and
so long as we have the money to pay for it we think little of where it comes from or how.V', . '
But now, with the World at War, all this Is changed. '-' :'''' V
We are beginning to realizeand we must learn to realize thordughlywhtt in all the world, in
any one year only a certain definite quantity of any given food stuff is produced and that when, for
any reason, there is a marked and extraordinary shortage in that Initial production, there must be
somewhere a corresponding shortage in consumption. - . .-,,-.. . .. ,......- , . ,,
We are apt to think that if we give money and keep on giving money, matters will be manage
somehow nd all will come right in the end. But let us remember that money will not buy sugar from
a plantation that is brown and bare with drought, n9t wholesome meat from a herd of cattle that is
itricken with anthrax. No pest or drought ever known is equal to war as a breeder of famine, and
todav. because of war. the whole world faces a thnt-t r essential tnnA ..? . .
We may not be conscious of that shortage at the present time, here in Honolulu. "Surely we can
use all the sugar we want! and so long as the merchants have meat and flour and I have money, why
should I not buy?" say some. : ; r,: w
Because the need of the world is like a great Ocean fed by the waters of every section of the globe.
If the rivers of America cease to run into the sea, the tides of Europe will lessen and every individ
ual consumer is like a drop of water in the mighty volume of the Mississippi River. .'..'
In ordinary times we might ignore this fact, if we chose. We could say, "It is nothing to m it
England, or Italy, or France, lack food.' There is no reason why I should deny myself on their ac
count." But the most selfish and indifferent among us can no longer say that Does any one . think
tthat we are merely "helping out" the Allied forces? No! A thousand times, Not . ?
"... If we have lived in ease and plenty for the last three years, it is because". Belgium and northern
France and Poland and Serbia have been trampled in blood and mire!. France and 'Italy 'and Eng
land have been and are fighting our battles, against Powers that are still' strong, still ruthjess, and stiJJ
bent oh world domination ! r:. ''''''. .'."''..',,". ' :,. i ' " ;''''."
And as for us, we who have lived so peacefully in these Happy Isles, let us remember that "unto
whomsoever much is given, of him shall much be required" and let us make our little personal sacri
fice ol food willingly, as bents those who have received much.
Sugar Patriotism
IT i regrettable thai; the attempt should be made
by any interest conducted with the sugar .in
dustry to create dissension' within the rank of the
industry or to cast discredit upon the motives of
the men directing "the work of the food adminis

the food administration, to cut down the profits

THIi familar saying" 'of -the late General Fan

appears to be generally reversed. hi the .war., Now
General Doyen, commanding' the 11 'Marines' ' in
France, puts it this way.: ''All who would Shoot
must dig." In a circular letter, emphasmg"the
value of the , entrenching tool, General : Doyen
points out that soldiers on the firing, line muft jdig
under if they value their lives in the" eis'. Th'e
continues: , ,vv ' ';l''r
emphasize too strongly iipon the
work to be performed. For. each three days, oi
righting during a month"the soldier must do twenty-seven
days of digging. -,;',; ',':'; 'i)-:,-7'..
After an advance has been made your very, life
depends upon your ability to dig down and get
tinder cover quickly. You may have. been, work
ing all day carrying ammunition, water. or sup
plies. The continued terrific roar of the big guns
has made it impossible for you tosleep during the
night. . Just before theXreak of dawn you partici
pate in the -offensive, which requires all possible
effort on your part. You are successful and gain
a good position, although you are tired beyond
words. It is then that you must dig, dig and 4'g
some more. .. .
We have , an expression in the Marine Corps,
"Hold what you've got." In this war in order to
hold what you've got you must dig for it. If you
want to ' retain the position for whith you haVe
fought hard and long, and for which many of your
comrades have given their lives, yoif must 3ig. . If
you want to do your share toward bringing the
line to and beyond the Rhine, you. must dig. 'If
you value your life you must dig. It is a lesson

HIGH IS CONCLUSION
Manager of "Dairymen's Associa
tion Asserts No Profit In Busi
ness Under Present Conditions
,'The raise ta- fifteen seats a quart
forj.ilV la .nnreasAnhWyand It is at
power of the food commission to pre
vent it," said A. U Castle jresterdr
after the first public meeting of - the
commission with tbe milk producers
aad representatives of the Dairymen 'a
Association. j, : , ,. . .. 'u ' '
: 41 It is possible that a fourteen-eent
rate may be called for-by the Increased
price demanded by tke producers, 'but
evea that has not yet' beea proved, and
the commission doen not go oa record
as approving even a one cent raise until
it knows all I here Is to know about the
milk conditions at ihe present time,"
he continued. . -f
The conclusion reached bv the com
mission yesterday waa that tbe cost of
delivering milk, as It is done at present
by the Dairymen's Association, is too
high. The delivery cost is about six
rents a quart, according to the state
ment of 8. W. Smith, manager of the
association. This includes nastnrization
and the expense of 'maintaining the
association. " ' -
. Statements were made by a number
or dairymen, representing small and
large dairies, ' that the producer at
present could not make an v. money un
less ke received nine Cents a quart for
his milk. - ; ' '
There are further facts to be brougkt
out before the Investigation Is com
plete, but on the evidence of the facts
submitted yesterday the commission be
lieves that a delivery cost of between
five and six cents is unreasonably high,
and that evea if the producer must re
ceive nine cents per quart to make a
profit, the delivery cost abould be les
sened' so iknt the price to-the retail
consumer need not be rals.L'i':"

- In thi) connection Julius Bayer, prl
vat secretary and business man for I).
P. R... Isenberg, largest stockholder , of
the association, atated that the organi
sation had been conducted in an ua
businesslike and wasteful manner.- as
far as . the .bookkeeping end of it was
concerned.. ' He ssid that a'eompetent
bookkeeier hail beea engaged by him a
week ago, and 1. was expected that the
outs could be more closely and accu
rately estimated, in future and perhaps
reduced. No promises -of a reduction In
the price or. milk were made unless in
the diHtsnt future. . ' '- '

Heinenway. 8. W. Smith, manager of
the. Dairymen 's Association, and two of
tbe large stockholders, V. P. R. Isen
berg anil Frank Andrale, were' there.
There were about thirty others, largely
Portuguese and Japanese, who . own
small dairies . and sell their milk
through the association.'
A. L. Castle opened the meeting with
the statement that the commission wish
ed to work together with the dairymen
ou the milk investigation, but that if
necesssry subpoenas would be Issued to
obtain the desired information, in esse
it was not brought out in the friendly
session. The commission would prefer
not to take drastic- action, but would do
so if it were needed.
Producers Want Raise '
"I am personally opposed to raising
the price of milk to tbe public," said
D. P. R. Iaeaberg, "but the producer
must be protected. If the public thinks
the proitueer is making money, they are
mistaken.
"Althuugh owning the controlling
stock in the association, 1 have taken
absolutely no part in their decision. I
will not use my control to set tbe price
of milk at any time, but if tbe time kas
come when the producer must have nine
cents. for his milk then I think it skould
be given him."
"Could tbe Dairymen's Association
pay the producer nine eenta and still
not raise the price to the public t"
Prank . Andrade asked. V '.- ;
"No," Iseuberg enswsred. : Tbe as
sociation . is now paying- eigkt xents
for milk.' -
A' formal report from the Dairy
men's Association was read by H. W.
Hmith. Sanitary requirements, bottle
deliveries, with consequent loss by
breakage,., paateurlMition. .end. a, fluc
tuating aupnly ot milk; were 'given aa"
the reasona ror the high eost or han
dling by tke association. J '
It would seem, according to Smith's
report,1 that aa oversupply of milk
would tend, directly to raise the price
of milk to tke consumer, ' Instead of
endeavoring to increase tke supply of
milk permsnentty . in ' order -to lower
the price, which would probably In
crease the' demand, they seem to pre
fer a short supply of .milk, aa then
they have no surplus to be disposed
of. ' , . . ' '' "'.
Smith in kitr1 report 'orVihglit in the
fact that butter ruld W msdo -by the
associstion from, the surplus only at a
loss. When tbe commission sought by
questions to determine tbe amount of
loss, he admitted that for .' some
months past no butter had been made,
but that ire cream had been made
from tke surplus milk at fair pro
fit. When there ia nn ausvlua milk
tbe l'e cream is made from milk pow
der. At present there is no surplus.'
The recent shortage of milk was laid
to the destruction of cows wbUk did

The public dents ads two deliveries

would reduce eiPease considerably, hi
Stated then, and later expressed the
opinio that one delivery a day would
not lessen expense, as it would require
additional equipment. ' Julius Bayer
also said ' that - one delivery a day
would not bring down expenses.
The statement ; that ' no . dividends
had ' beea paid by the association
sinee June 30, 1904, brought out from
the members present the fact that the
association waa supposed to be a pure
ly cooperative, institution which was
not organized to pay tilvidehda. It is
supposed to lessit the 'ftokt of distri
bution to the individual 'dairyman and
insure a steady (inarkcHloY; hie milk,
although no contracts- are entered into
and' the dairyman can self 0 them or
not as he pleases, Just as they can re
fuse to take his milk at any time..
Eight Cents Limit ; . . ;
.."Tke association ban never - paid
over eight cents V quart for milk be
fore," Mid Frank Andrade, "and kas
paid at times aa little aa six cents.
The stock is worth nothing except as
it carries with it representation on
the bosrd of directors."
"Is It not true then," asked John
Waterbouse, "that the stock is held
owners can at any time 'control the
price paid to produeerst" ',
"hey can, but they do not," waa
Andrsde 's. reply. "They have never
done so in the history of the organisa
tion." He also stated that in tbe
course of sixteen yeara ia the dairy
business be bad never met a man who
made money In It. r
It -costs 38.6 cents daily to feed one
of D. P. B. Isenberg's cows, Bayer said,
and when depreciation waa included
their loss was 1.3 cents per day when
they received 7.9o cents per quart for
milk. Isenberg's dairy conditions are
the most favorable in the Islands, as
he is the only producer who raises all
his own ' feed.
Want Nine Cents
The Portuguese dr.irymen present at
the meeting stated throuvh aspokes-
man that they wished to obtain nine.
cents a quart for their milk at the
present time. They -would be satisfisd
with this and considered it a fair price.
The Japanese present made tbe same
statement.
It seemed to be tke general desire
of tbe small dairymen to obtain a cer
tain fixed price for their milk, instead
of waiting until the end of the month,
as they do now, and then receiving
their pro rata according to quantity sup
plied after the expenses of distributing
are deducted. They do not seem to
feel that this method is a fair one. (
"When I was an independent dairy
man, before mv herd was wiped out
by anthrax," T.' P. Farm told tbs
meeting, "I made money, . tkougk I
worked kard for It: I think nine cents
is a reaaonsble price tn tke producer.
When I bad my dairy t made a profit
la selling milk at 13 cents with a pro
durtion cost of eight and one half cents.
Ijdld npt,pstnrerie, but went to extra
