' nation can lone sustain such losses. The decrease
in that country's man power is certain to be ma
; terially felt and soon. Despite territory that has
. , been given over there is no cause for the Allies
and for the people of this country to be dis-
; , couraged. "Set your teeth and go to it." must
now be the policy.
', Without a shadow of a doubt the selection of a
. supfeme commander for the combined armies of
'- co-icligerents is the most important announce
' rieft of the week. The formation of a supreme
V war council was a step in the right direction and
, a long one. It led directly to the second step of a
- ", :injgle head to the fighting forces. It has thus
'. " brought about a coordination similar to that which
.'' Cdfmany already possessed and which Lloyd
, : ffleorge says has in the past given to the enemy
' , an incalculable advantage. The selection of Gene-
ral Foch lor the position of greatest resporpbilitY
has also given, keen satisfaction.
7 .'.: Perhaps next in 'importance is the general par
' ticipation of the forces of the United States which
: . the despatches of yesterday indicated is now close
t hand. It comes earlier than had been expected.
7 They have not all had the full training which it
was planned and desired to give them. That will
; ' make it the harder for them, perhaps, but if they
are needed at the front at this time that is the
'. , place for them. Their position is no worse, is in
; finitely better than was that of the soldiers of our
allies in the early days of the war. Our boys have
had a training which those soldiers had not been
able to obtain. Our least trained men are immeas
' urably better trained than were the green troops
of Pritain and France in those days for , by no
nuans all of their forces had had military training.
Active participation of really large numbers of
American soldiers will bring a thrill of satisfac
tion to millions of American patriots. The boys
who have been training over there have been
; chafing at the delay their training required. They
w ill go into the fighting with an enthusiasm that
is truly American. Some grimly determined,
,, some smiling, some singing they "are on their
.. ' way" these reports said. -They will mostly wel
come the change of plan.
This greater participation is going to bring the
war closer home to all of us. Many a heart ache,
many a sob is destined to follow the news that
must come after the announcement of the general
entry into battle of the American forces. We
.must look for larger casualty lists. The names of
pome of those we know, some of those we love.
11 will be among them. We must expect this. We
have expected it but the unhappy realization is
' now upon us. To meet it we must ever kep in
mind the great cause for which our sons, our
brothers, the husbands of the women of the land
. In some instances, the fathers of some of the-little
: ,, ' ones about us, are offering all that they have, the
- liberty and the peaceful happiness of the world.
Those soldiersuhave not hesitated, are not hesitat
ing and we must be as brace, as sacrificing as are

Judge Ashford is absolutely correct in his con
tention that there cannot be one ruie for civilians Ter-
and another for army officers, Jiving under prac
tically the same conditions. There has never yet
been made by the food administration any excep
tions for men in uniforms or ' for their families
that we have seen, although coijnmon sense will
show that some exception are permissible. Men
in hard physical training re'quire , the most sub
stantial food, and this, in 0fne . instances, will
apply to officers of the regular army on Oahu. By
no possible stretch of the militaty .imagination,
however, can it be made to include the families of

have their special dispensations because they are

The decision of the army not only to participate
in the first Territorial Fair but to take such a part
in it as to make its success certain has been, re
ceived by civilians of the Territory with unquali
fied pleasure. The stamp of official approval
placed upon the efforts of the civilians to bring
producers and consumers together for mutual ben
etit and as a part of the production side of the
food problem solution was what was needed. The
action of General Wisser and the hearty coopera
lion of Colonel Schofield were appreciated and
this appreciation has been voiced from one end of
the group to the other.
It is too bad, therpfore, to have the excellent
effect of it all spoiled in a degree by the threat f
the commanding general now to use the army's
part of the community affair as a big stick against
comment on or criticism of any other part of army

THE searchlight of war has brought out many
interesting facts, and one of these is that the
vaunted German efficiency will not always stand
the test of comparison with American efficiency.
The Germans boasted of being th,e greatest
farmers on earth. Investigation shows that in
efficiency in agriculture, measured by the produce
per acre, America being graded 100, Belgium leads
the world, at 205; Great Britain comes second, at
164; and Germany third, at 155; America comes
Rut the better test is the man test rather than
the acre test, and here America leads the world
bv over two to one. Again, grading America at
100 per farm worker, Great Britain produces forty
three and Germany forty-one. The American
farmer cultivates twenty-seven acres, the German
I farmer but seven. With the aid of vast quantities
! of fertilizer the German produces more per acre
hut he produces at a much greater cost per bushel
and he produces much less than half as much per
i w. s. s.
I The Swiss want grain and the grain is waiting

was offered by Commissioner D. H.

"Whereas, the Mani Chamber of
Commerce hat recommended as a war
measure that this board refuse to grant

"Therefore be it resolved by the
board of license commissioners for the

war, no licenses or renewals of licenses
allowing and permitting the sale of in
toxirating liquors in the, County of
