Draft Officials, Anticipating the
Man Power Bill Passage
Have Been Busy
Rights of Aliens Carefully Gone
Intq.and No Injustice Can
Result From ignorance
Yesterday the President signed the
Man t'owef'bilt ami on tlio matnlanl
the registration day for youthi from
eighteen to twenty-one ami men from
thirty two to forty Ave will be on Sep
tember 12. A yet no official Instruc
tions hav come to Governor MeCarthv,
dut, following precedent, it la not likely
that registration lay ia Hawaii will be
any earlier than the end of the month.
However, in anticipation of the pass
age of the bill and with foresight sharp
ened by hindsight, the local draft offi
cials have been smoothing out a number
i( legal points which bothered! (hem in
the last registration anil have been Ret
ting opinions and ruling that will pre
elude aome of the confusion that the
last drat brought about.
Klgnta of Allans
The rights of aliens un.ler the Beloe
tive Service Act have been gone over
in particular and It is expected that
there will be clear sailing despite the
fact that the registration to come will
include thousands of the older Orientals
in the Territory. Between the ages of
thirty-two and forty-five are very, very
many of the Japanese who rame to
Hawaii when the immigration waa at
its height, men who are less likely to
know what to do . with their registra
tion blanks and their questionnaires
than those who have already registered.
Naturally the confusion of the last reg
istration would be multiplied in the
coming one unlesa great care be taken
in advance to minimize it, .and thia
care has already, been, taken.
Beat Orowder To It
Is preparing in advance, the draft
officials have beeu doing exactly what
l'rovost' Marshal Crowder wants, as
stated in a cablegram from him to
Governor McCarthy yesterday, the mes
sage saying:
Governor, Honolulu, Hawaii.
Number B287S, paragraph one.
On account approaching classifica

during the first questionnaire and
classification. Please acknowledge
receipt of this, stating what steps
you have taken to carry same into
Ignorance Cannot Harm
The main Hint gone over by the
heads of the draft with District Attor
ney Huher deal with the rights of aliens
under the draft regulations. One im
sjrtant difference in the regulations as
first drafted ami us they now stand
treats with the claim for exemption
based on the fMrt that the registrant
is an alien.
In the original regulations, to secure
this exemption the registrant had to
claim it.
Am the regulations are today, no alien
lllav lie Iciallv inducted into the mill.
t i iy service who has not specifically '
waived his right or exemption.
Ignorance prevented many in tho
first registration from claiming exemp
t ion, ami in many cases these aliens
were drafted uud are now in the ser
vice. Hereafter, to be drafted into the ser
vice Is something that cannot hapMn to
mi alien through his ignorance of his
rittht. If he be drafted it will Un
because he has gone to enough trouble I
to expressly waive his exemption right, j
This is a decidedly important point i
ami should be given the widest publici
ty ih xue Japanese ami i.uiuese press,
ss it probably will bo.
Power To Punish
Another point which has been thresh
ed out ami finally submitted to the pro
vost marshal at Washington for au au
thoritative ruling deals with the dis
ciplining of registrants who may fail ,
to mane out and return their iiics
tionuaire. In the case of citizens, the fact of
the failure to return the questionnaire
promptly oldiges the classification board
to place the registrant in Class 1 A, i
from which class he will be promptly
drafted and placed in uniform if able
to past t;luB,fjicdical tests.
In the matter of aleius, however, in- ,
nsiuuch as the questionnaire contains
the exemption waiving clause, the draft j
board is apparently left i without auy
power to punish u refusal to fill in and
return the paper. The only punish
ment within the power of the board is
to classify a laggard registrant in the
first class to be called, while the fact ;
that the alien registrant has not re 1
turned his questionnaire waiviirg his
exemption prevents any such a clasai
licatioti. The question submitted to Washing
ton asks what alternate punishment
they t-au be. Nobody iu Honolulu knows
as yet.

Singing to Huns
"Well, old scout, I have traveled
much since I wrote to you last. We
were then at what is called a 'quiet
sector', but we changed its name. Fun
ny thing about this war as soon as the
Americans get into a quiet sector it be
comes, a Hell of a place. Ever hear
the song: 'Get Your Head Down Alle
man'f Well, we sing that to 'cm with
75s and etber stuff.
"A German order captured not long
ago referred to these troops as 'shock
troops'. Believe met the Hun will run
across a lot of khaki clad 'shock troops'
before be gets through with the fun.
Lately every day is alike. This divi
sion came out of one big scrap; had
three daya to waih spin; climbed into
trueks; traveled two days, landed one
evening and before twenty-four hours
bad passed; hiked several miles and
chased the Hunt several mora, captur
ing a thousand prisoners, two hundred
guns and enough other stuff to fill tbe
transport Thomas.
Counting Hob Grunt
" Another - American division was
right on their flack and had just the
same kind of a job at we did. It was
a scrap alright nothing on the little
corporals guard maneuver style we used
to effect. Why, I saw one traffic jam
two miles long. Five hundred guns
were in aotion on our side. We knew
the Hun had four hundred, because we
Counted them, when be left them be
hind. "If I can get bold of the 'Stare and
(Stripes' I will send you a copy. It will
tell yon about our last scrap better
than I can. I saw some nasty sights
and had a little fun once, a Hun avia
tor chased me and my driver under an
ammunition wagon; then dropped a
bomb down knocking put one of the
hones. 4ut be didn't get me.
Ont-goeaalng Prita ,
"That eight a Hub dropped a flare
over our eaarpv.A aiea feeling goes up
your spine, when you wake up some
night and find a Hun flare floating
over your nice little bed. They light i
up things so you could tee a gnat s eye
lash at fifty paces. You know then
that the Hun is way up there some
where, with a good, supply of bombs
picking out a spot he will drop one on.
There is a fine game of guess on be
tween you and the Hun then. He is
trying to guess where you will be, when
the bomb lands and you are trying to
guess where you will not be when it
lands. To make it more entertaiaing,
he usually gets high up and then shuts
off his motor to make your part of the
guessing more difficult. If he leaves
his motor on, you can usually tell pretty
near where he is. Then sometimes,
you make his part of the guessing pret
ty interesting by pointing the business
end of a machine gun or a 75 hit way.
Beating Own Game
"One day my men got tired of be
ing chased into the brush by Hun air
man so they went, out into a wheat
field close bv and brought in a collection
of guns. There were plenty of them j
out mere laying arounu, siso
must everything else in the war line,
even to dead warriors American and
German. The boys manned an anti-aircraft
battery. Thore was nothing ,du

airplane came after a French Balloon
close by. Hay! the way my boys gpeti
ed up was some dangerous. They are
all ",ood operators and telephone men
but arc not much on this machine gun
stuff. Hay! that Hun .took to the
woods. I did too. It was no place for
a sober man. The air, earth aud fences

Demand For Food For World
Such That All Prejudices
Should Be Buried At Once
"We are asked to sse sugar by the
pound, and yet, liecause of a prejudice
ngsinst the yellow rsce we are forced
to' waste it by the thousand tons."
This is how' Albert Horner, repre
sentative in Hawaii of the Federal
War Trade Board, sunimsrired the la
bor shortage situation in the Tcrl
lory in an interviow granted The Ad-
Mr. Horner declares without quale-
ication that there is only one way la
which Hawaii can perform its double
luty or providing its share of flghtiug
nen and of holding to a high mark its
.reduction of vitally-needed foodstafTs
sugar, pineapplea and rice and that
s by the imortation, for tbe period
if the war, of Oriental labor.
"To me tbe present Hawaiian lalssr
ituatinn is litle short of criminal,"
said Mr. Horner, "and I believe it
houid be taken up with the National
'ood Commission, the Immigration
Bureau and, if necessary, the Kzocu
ive, to assure that some relief be af

roducing power may be expanded to

Hher Una Weakened

his contribution of man power for the
Ighting line Vut the drain hat weak
ened another line, equally important,
he food production line, and, at Mr.
Moover tays 'Food Will Win the War',
mil, conversely, lack of food will lose

"Action to recruit the ranks of our
food producers must be taken at ono

nendous reduction, ia our food prod

vill be a loss of at least 50,0U0 tons
f sugar in 1919.
Breaking Down Prejudices
"New the remedy is simple, yet diflJ

kers of political sentiment and politi
cal prejudice for the period of tbe

"Senator McCumber, speaking ia tbe
enate on June 28, said: 'An over
whelming victory ia so vitally impor

gainst alien or yellow labor should
be thrown to the winds'. This ent
ireties my views exactly.
"If permitted, the Oriental laborers
would come into the United States as
food producers for the period of the

ar vires might be required and then,
like our boys in France, return home.
Only some such expedient wilt guur
intee that Hawaii can perform lit
itally important function of helping

ivilians and soldiers. The importance
f this is reeognired by everyone con

Kvcry Hund of sugar that can lie pro
