He finds that the legislative act
creating the food commission gives un

give the commlesion power to aid those

at the office of Mayor Joseph J. Fern.
The board of director of tire aasoci

He was keenly disappointed thnt
he could not immediately enter the
war serviie. He had no idea of be
coming an aviator, but felt thnt his
knowledge of motors nnd mechanics
wmild secure him an enlistment.
He said that moat of the contin
gent which went rVom Hawaii at the
name time will enter the particular
branches for which they applied. The
Vancouver Hun of March !!-, had the
following account of the arrival of the
. "To join the living corps, Henry
Berkley, a native of Hawaii, who is a
member of one of tho most noted Ha
waiian families, hns arrived in Van
couver, coming on tHe Canadian Aus
tralian liner, lie is stopping with his
cousins, the Atcherley family, of this
city, and Miss Tavl'or. Th distinir
Uishetl y sun i7 native is determined to
lo. his bit, ami believes he will be
found especially fitted for the aviation
service. Cpon his departure from Ho
nolulu he was tho recipient of the
good wishes of the native population
and Americans ami Britishers, with
whom he is equally iiopular. The
young man chose to join the Canadian
corps in preference to the American,
believing he could reach the fighting
line aoouer thereby.
"Further evidence of the patriotism
of Britishers, wherever located, ar
rived on the Cans, lian-Australian liner,
and twenty recruits have been aled
to the British forces. When the liner
ranched Honolulu twenty stalwart
young men, headed bv John Cran of
Vancouver, went aboard. Ther were
sixteen Britishers, two Jamaica negroes,
one native of the Hawaiian Islands
aad one young man who was bora ia
Honolulu of British parents. Four of
the number have had military ex peri
ence in ihf British army and they are
going to join up in the old country,
but the rest will enlist in Vancou
ver. 'All of the new recruits have
spent year in the Hawaiian Islands,
but Mr. Cran hud been there but a
little more than year.
"Nearly every .liner einee the. war
started hat trtWjrrtTertiirtfreixr the
Hawaiian Islands, ' though the party
yesterday was one of the largest of
late. 'There' nothing to write about
us,' said-Mr. Cran yesterday, 'we just
derided it wa time for us to get iu
the game, and here we are '. "

HILO THAN HONOLULU
And This Despite Greater Scar
Tl)c beef shortage on the' Island of
Hawaii is so acute that Hilo has lon
had two meatless day a week, but in
the face of thla situation beef sells at
wholesale ther oae cent u ruler tin- Ho
nolulu market, according to W. H. )iip
man. a cattle rancher of Puna 'who i
visiting the city. He said that recent
Iv Hilo ha been considering Die ipic
tiou of adding a third meatless day to
the 'I'm. lays ami Fridays now nbscrv
Two years ago the Hind and Parker
ranches on Hawaii., he said, had suffi
eient stock to supply both Hilo ami
Honolulu, but in the past two years
they have sent practically nothing to
Hilo. The visitor said there is no re
lief in sight before July snd probably
nothing could be done then.
