VEXES FOOD EXPERTS Chairman of Transportation Committee Urges Increased Consumption at Home John Waterhouse, chairman of the transportation committee of the ter ritorial food commission, says ,lhat his committee, after an investigation, finds itself unable to solve the prob lem of relieving the banana conges tion at Honolulu. With a thousand or more bunches of bananas rotting each week, owing to lack of cargo space to carry them to the mainland markets, and with coast dealers cabling here for further shipments of the fruit, the food com mission, as well as its transportation committee, admits the situation to bo serious and, as Mr. Waterhouse says, there appears to be no solution c! tbe problem at the present time. In the opinion of Mr. Waterhouse, suspension of the coastwise shipping laws to allow Hawaiian bananas to be shipped to the coast in foreign bottoms might relieve the situation, but another proolem is whether, un der these conditions, the Japanese shipping companies would be willing to cooperate. It is pointed out that the Japanese steamers from the Orient are loaded down with cargo, in spite of the high freight rates, and the question Is whether they would have proper cargo space in which to store bananas for transportation to the coast. While considerable cargo ft un loaded from these steamers at Hono lulu, this is taken from the hold and, if such space was filled with ban anas, the fruit simply would 1 "cooked" by the time It reached the mainland, owing to the heat Tbor ough ventilation has been found to be essential In shipping bananas, and the fruit Is generally placed on deck. Home Consumption In Mr. Waterhouse's opinion, the present banana congestion is due to an over production. Local steamers, to as great an extent as possible, are taking bananas to the coast, but in spite of these heavy shipments the fruit continues to pile up In local warehouses. "It seems to me," says Mr. Water house, "that we will hate to find some way to use these bananas at home, but how they shall be used appears to present another difficult problem." The price for Hawaiian bananas on the mainland is high, running up to as mucn as J1.60 a bunch, and the de mand is reported to be steadily In creasing. . . ..Within a few days the transnorta tion committee may report to the com mission that it is unable to solve the shipment problem.

MILES; Mgr. ycui:MB0??rs: MEATLESS DAY Like 20 of the big mainland hotels. the Young hotel has instituted a "meatless day" once a week for the last six weeks. Friday is the day of the week when no meat la served. turtle steak being the nearest ap proach to ft Otherwise oysters and several kinds of fish constitute the piece de resistance. With the excep tion of Hartie's restaurant which began observing a "meatless day" once a week during last week, ths Young hotel is the only hotel or res- taurant in Honolulu which has fol lowed the patriotic precedent of the mainland hotels. Harry EL Stinson. manager of the Young hotel, points out that by leav ing meat oft the menu one day a week that one-seventh of the usual amount oi meat is not used. in is reduces the amount of freight which must be brought here from the mainland, as much of the meat is imported," he adds. As yet no movement has been made to eliminate veal and lamb from the regular menus, although this is being done on the mainland. Manager Stinson says that most of the main land hotels also have one day when no white bread is served. Many of the imported luxuries now appearing on the menus of the better hotels will by necessity have to be taken off in .time as it will be Impos sible to secure them, Manager Stln son thinks.
