u With this as it slogan, the newly
appointed woman's committee of the
territorial food commission met for
organization at noon today and adopt
ed the foregoing as preliminary sug
gestions to . the women of the terri
tory. Plans' for a widespread cam
paign of education were talked over,
as well as plana to enlist heoppera-
Uonof every Ivoman, fa,' the territory

'Aslde?frdm members;' 'others
present were' James' P. Dole, chairman.

members of 'the: woman's -committee;
are; Mrs. A. c Alexander, chairman r
Mrs. F. W. MacFarlane, Mrs. C. Mon-
tague Cookei Jr MrsA. Gartiey and
Mrs. A. L. Andrews.
Great Interest Is being shown by
the women In; their new work, and
plana were laid which may result in
the, appointment of committees - of

In co-operation with the ; central com
mittee at Honolulu, ,
i One of the principal suggestions of
fered waa that the women of the ter
ritory be urged to use .Hawaiian prod
nets wherever possible in place of
coast product, . It waa suggested that
the r Women - demand, r Hawaiian prod
ucts,' in preference to Imported com
modities, when marketing. This, it
was pointed out, would. tend to: stimu
late Hawaiian industries, keep money
In the I territory and cut down to a
considerable degree the present de
mand on shipping. :
The problem of conserving the Ha
waii meat supply was also discussed.
This, it was explained, could be done
if each family would enforce upon It
self a small curtailment of Its usual
beef consumption each week. Im this
respect it was suggested that each
person eat. a quarter of a pound less
of beef each week.
Assuming that the production of
beef, is the aame now as it was In
1916, and .that the consumption is the
same, tt waa pointed out that. In order
to avoid importation, it would be
necessary for -each person to eat a
quarter of a pound less of beef each
week, .assuming, again, that only 60
per cent of the population eats beet.
Another way to cut down on beef.
t was suggested, is by using less meat
but combining it with some other
product j Mrs.' Alexander offered the
suggestion that cornmeal might be
mixed with flour to conserve the aup
ply of flour. CornmeaL ahe added,
haa been found to improve the quality
of bread. "

To undertake an investigation of
the rice situation In the islands, ap
parently with a view to ascertaining
whether a conspiracy is afoot to regu
late prices, the territorial food com
mission expects to hold a meeting
either tomorrow or Thursday morn
ing. .The subject is to be taken up, it
was announced today, at the urgent
request of severs! residents of Ueno-
lulu who have written to the eouimls
sion calling attention to fluctuating
prices which have' been prevailing,
especially on imported Japanese rice.
during the last few months, and Inti
mating the presence of a "jigger In1
the -woodpile as regards tne prop
osition: A. L. Dean, executive officer of the
commission, has investigated the rice
price to some extent through the
county agent and. said today that he
had not found anything which would
ead him to believe a conspiracy was
afoot to regulate prices, as, at the
present time, Hawaiian rice costs
more than the imported Japanese
product Hawaiian rice is now sell
ing at about S7 a hundred pounds,
while imported Japanese rice is bring
ing about $6.50 a hundred pounds.
The food commission has been given
to understand that on recent ship
ment of Japanese rice, a charge of
about $55 a ton was made forfreight
age by the steamship company and
this, in the opinion of Mr. Dean, might
account for a rise In the cost of the
rice in Honolulu. This freight rate is
considered abnormal, and a factor
over which the food commission has
no control.
Mr. Dean explains that during the
last few months, the price of rice has
advanced to from $6 to $6.50 a hun
dred pounds; while three years ago
the price for the same rice ranged
from $3 to $3.50 a hundred pounds.
The question has arisen whether
the food commission, if it was able,
would find it worth while to Investi
gate the present high prices, or cut
