(orium site was made yesterday, by this GoS-etnof,
coupled with the very gratifying news that the
War Department is prepared to" acquire .another
al joining; block by condemnation .as site for an
army headquarters building. ; The headquarters'

The idea back of the Gcvernof's shadowy plan
is a splcndjdne.'tllt natural sequence. of the hard
I" t;!it made by The Advertiser 'and V few others
for a number of years to secure the present federal
Mtc and force the abandonment bl the 'previously
r equired Mahuka property. Honolulu does, as the
( .overnot" points' out,' need, a suitable auditorium.'
Whether the present is' a good time to talk about
it or not as something for the near future is bpe
to question, but there can be' no question of the;
wisdom of taking stops now-to secure tsifV': '
What the "Governor has done, after" the verbiage
his announcement iS stripped away, has been to
induce someone to agree to secure title to a'site
with the "understanding that the property is to be
turned otf ti. the1 government after, the TegisW
, t ure har appropriated ' money' for 'the1 purchase
Vi ice. 'That , the legislature will : do ,r any such" a
tiling at its next session is very much to be doubt
id, as our legislatures have never yet shown any
Keen desire to spend territorial funds in the; beau
ti ricatioit of JJonoltilu, however worthy the object,
ami especially as the .purchase of the' site is only4

to erect the .proposed building. AVe fear that the
juiblici audUoriuta will go down into history as, a
waiting; companion ol the, .Waikiki. Reclamation
project and the edifice, planned to be built by that
"timn vented machine , familiar to kamaainas. y
It seems a. pity tbatoth.. Governor cannot make
a goodt suggestion!, however. Impracticable hemay

and so unnecessarily. It is naturat that, ht is not

The duty of the American people to ecohbmize
in consumption of Jood and all other materials as
well as savev;m'oney,',can not be tob often or too
strongly urged upon them. The duty .is so imper
ative, its observance so vital to our country's suc
cess, that it should be kept constantly before thorn.
The proposition is plain and understandable.
.We have lessened the prodnctive powers of, the
country by . taking 2,CXX),000 men away, from the
lroductiye forces of. the country i instead of pro
ducers of one kind or another the soldiers are, con
sumers of the products .of 'our farms, factories, and
mines, and when the munitions they expend and
will expend against the enemy is considered they
are tremendous consumers of the manufactured
j roducts of the, country.. '') ; rtr,:'
A tremendous amount of ' the : manufacturing
energy of the country has been -withdrawn from
manufacturing the things we use in peace and put
to manufacturing the things we use in .war; " The
total loss to jthe country of the productive energy
of our soldiers, ajid sailors and the diversion of a
k'reat. portio'njcif the other productive energy rof
i ne country to war purposes lessen to a great ex
tent the amount of material and supplies produced

To thiar'f oudiQi; of lessened production and in
creased consumption, of and by our own men
must added .'theTextraordinary demand made
.lpon" tins Jjbuntry to'A supply the armies of our
i llies and to a great extent their population with
food and other material. '. ' '
We 'must meet the condition that confronts uS

The question has come before the

at a board meeting held last night.

It has "been argued to ike board that
the army does not, in . seeking s lsrgc
part1 or tne pineapple output of the
Hawaiian pineapple packers, regard it
aa an essential food, but it ia merely
secured at government prices, to be
plseed on sale la post-exchanges .ana
other army ssles places for the con
venience2 of soldiers and others liviss
in. military posts, just as snssy othei

It has "been bronght to the attention
Of the board that . Colonel Hehofield,

. On the other hand there are members
of the board who are strongly la favor
of. the view that the plaespplo with
Its largo sugar- and aeid contents. Is
a necessary .article of food for the in
ternal .welfare of 'the eountry, and
that the. industry should therefore be
classed as such. There is also aa opin
ion in the board thst it is an industry
ths maintenance of which is vitally es
sential to the welfare of a 'large ma
jority of the .people, and to strip it ot
employes on ths ground that they ar
not essential - within" the .meaning 0
the draft regulations and 'Classification
would go far .toward destroying; as in
dustry . which mesne much to the de
velopment of the. Islsnds.- ' '
The Hawaiian rincapple Packers As
sociation, through James - J). ' Dole,'
The T-iiieapple King", and L P, Ju
kins, brought the matter to the board's
attention at ths last meeting,' express
ing their opinion in f svor of the view
thst the Industry should be classed as
an essential industry. They argued that
draft boards elsewhere have so regsrd
ed industries when -.'the .government
plseed large, eon tracts for the outputs.
They said that practically the entire
winter pineapple pack or the Islaadi
bad been commandeered by ths govern
ment. They, felt also that' pineapples
should be treated" differently from oth
er canned . "fruits, particularly as ths
fovernmenthappeaa.; to bo a heavy
uyer.' '..... w v :'.':' '."...
Statements that, have appeared in
priftt, baaed on the fact that the pine
apple people desire to have their In
dustry elsssed as aa essential industry,
Ust they likewise desire, to hsvs those
employed via It " exempt from ths
draft,' are denied ss ridiculous by ths
pineapple people, ; Thsrs la no question
wnstever or exemption ror pineappui
employes . included in their appearance
before tao district poara. ' in oonnee.
tion with whatever few exemption!
that may be asked for, these w,tU bl
taken up on their individual basis, but
not on ths basis of general employ
ment in the industry, . Undoubtedly
exemption for soma few "key men,J
essential to the organisation, will bl
