'T TAKE ADVANTAGE OF EXEMPTION That the Japanese in Hawaii, or at least most of them, are ready to serve the United States by joining the national army, is the general expres sion in Japanese circles. T. .Murai, Japanese eleve'-consul, said this morning that he believed it is the duty of every Japanffo here to stand for the flag under whose pro tection they are enjoying their live lihood in Hawaii. Asked whether h had received word from Tok'o pro testing against the drafting of the Hawaii-Japanese for the national army, Mr. Murai answered in the neg ative. The receipt of purported instruc tions from Provost Marshal Crowder directing the exemption board not to draft certain Japanese, is of no inter est to the local Japanese. WTiat they say now, is that they are ready to do their share towards protecting the country of their adoption.
