C lec. 17 An swering the assertions made by Clans Spreckels before the senate commit tee which is investigating the sugar shortage that discrimination was shown by the food administration and otherwise attacking the food adminis tration, its policies and methods, Her bert C. Hoover yesterday gave the fol lowing statement to the press: Anything which I have to say to Mr Spreckels' statement will be said in due time to the senate committee. "Spreckels Is "Sore" "Today it requires no proof from me to establish the fact that Claus Spreck els, a leading sugar refiner, is sore at the food administration and the sugar commissions and would like to see it and them destroyed. "I realize that Mr. Spreckels' bal ance sheet will not look so good to him as it did last year, for the refiners' prices for sugar have been regulated and furthermore his balance sheet would have looked much better to him this year if the price of last Au gust had not been reduced and held fast In the face of a partial shortage that promised a fair opportunity for 30 cents a pound sugar and much in creased profit to the refiner. Mr. Spreckels therefore has reason to feel badly. Findc Sincere Patriots "There are other citizens some of whom now feel and others of whom will feel the same way and can, no doubt, entertain the public by direct ing assaults against the food adminis tration as Mr. Spreckels has done. While many feel badly and more will feel badly, still the great majority of the men and women of our business community and of our farmers are sac rificing individual and personal pro fits daily to the necessities of the na tion without complaining. Many are sacrificing more than their money, they are offering to the sacrifice their sons. y Shortage Three Months "We have had two months of par tial sugar shortage. October and No vember, and we shall also have De cember before relief from the new crop arrives. "The American people have had five hundred thousand tons of sugar in those two months, and that is 70 per cent of the normal supply in each month, October and November, and. If cars are obtainable, they will have 70 per cent of the normal supplies in MRS. BALDWIN GIVES $1000 TO "Y" FUND Mrs. H. P. Baldwin of Maul is the latest contributor to the Y. W. C. A. fund, having sent a check to the? local association for $1000, which brings the total amount received to date $43,600, Checks are coming in by each mail, and it is expected that before the end of the week the total amount of $45,000 will be raised. There will be a meeting of the board of directors tomorrow morning, at which time the reports of the various committees will be received. Local workers have expressed the thought that no other community in the world excels Honolulu in contributions to worthy causes. In the recent campaign contribu tions were received from thousands of friends of the association, many small amounts being received as well as large contributions. Contributions ' were received from the people of ev ery nationality on the island, the Chi nese and Japanese especially contri buting to the fond. WALL & DOUGHERTY TAKES ON HOLIDAY APPEARANCE Wall & Dougherty's jewelry store, in the Young building, this morning blossomed forth in splendid holiday style. Beautiful large poinsettia plants decorate the store, and from their set ting behind miniature trellis-work, add their Christmas cheer to the beauti ful displays throughout the store. Hawaii, being a land of sunshine tfie whole -year, does not furnish as much 1 1 x. . - r y. vuiwuuoB muiuouci cr as ounir ui uio mainland states, yet poinsettias are abundant here and make excellent dec orations as a visit to Wall & Dough ! erty's will show. SAID HE WAS CRAZY; GOES TO JOHN WISE Many strange things happen at the police station, but a new one was sprfmg on Police Sergeant Kamauoma Sunday morning, when Officer A. Ka waihoa brought in a woe begone Chi nese, who calmly stated he was crazy. The sergeant believed him and locked him up. This morning he was shipped out to Kapiolani park, where he will be under the care of John Wise, su perintendent, for the next three months. Gold December also. Gn.ng to tar sl.ort ags the sugar shortage has been most acute in the Northeast, and about two hundred cais. uaded w-ith sugar, are today blocked from that ivgion. Twice French Ration "Tills To per cent of the normal supply which t!ie American peopie have enjoyed the use of is twice the French ra ion. In 'he uieinttiiip wo have gien to France a good part cf the 3 per cent which we have saved and we an; proud of it. This supply so given t) Prance was given delib erately md the American people were told of it at the time. "We ha ;e also agreed to draw ten thousand tons for our own supplies for cur friends in Canada. I le f to meet an American citizen who would have it otherwise. "As to the food administration hav ing stopped the sources of supply as Mr. Spra- kels has charged, the fact that all available supplies have been brought here that sl ips and c;.rs could bring an l that it has already leen eat en is sufficient answer. See3 to Use Administrator ' Mr. Spveckels. as well or better than any one else, knows the bitter ness of the ten years cf fights between the producers and the refiners and be tween the different refinprs and, if he will look lyick over the last three months, he will observe the desire of many of these eements to use the iood administration as a club to stop their long standing bitter warfare. "If Mr. Spreckels will tell r.s where there is any sugar today that ships can be obtained to carry, or car3 can be obtained to deliver, we shall at once, and with the same resolution that we have requisitioned or distrib uted over sixty millions of pounds of embargoed sugar since Oct. 1, pro ceed to secure that sugar also. "In the meantime the 9)0,000 tons of sugar in Java is a3 remote from us as is cheese to be taken out of the moon unless we wish to take the bread ships from our own soldiers and the Allies in order that we may supply ourselves with the candy with which we -have been accustomed to indulge ourselves." A copy of th4fl statement was wire lessed to J. F. Child, federal food ad ministrator for Hawaii, yesterday with the authorization to him to release it for publication Immediately and with the request that he give it the widest possible publicity.

DUTCH SOLDIERS GIVE POLICE MERRY TIME The police of Honolulu Saturday night had their hands full literally, when 70 Dutch soldiers on their way to the Nederland East Indies, where they are being sent on government service, rushed the guard stationed at the gang plank of their steamer and scattered throughout the city. The police were called upon to round up the runaways and for several hours the hurry-up wagon was in demand. In the mix-up a number of non-commissioned officers who had been sent out to bring in the privates were taken in tow and it took much explaining before the matter was straightened out.

FFf FOLKS HAVE Druggist Says Ladies are Using Recipe of Sage Tea and Culphur Hair that loses its color and lustre, or hen it fades, burns gray, dull and lifeless, Is caused by a lack of sulphur in the hair. Our grandmother made up a mxtnre of Sage Tea and Sulphur to keep her locks dark and beautiful, and thousands of women and men who value that even color, that beautiful dark shade of hair which is attractive, use only this old-time recipe. Nowadays we get this famous mix ture imprcved by the addition of other ingredients by asking at any drug store for a 50-cent bottle of "Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur Compound," which darkens the hair so naturally, so even ly, that nobody can possibly tell it has been applied. You just dampen a sponge or soffr brush with it and draw this through your hair, taking one srr.ali s;ranc at a time. By morning the hair disappears; but what delicj.ts the ladies with Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur Compound, is that, be sides beautifully darkening the hair after z. few application, it also brings back the gioss and lustre and gives it an appearance of abundance. Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur Com pound is a delightful toilet requisite to impart color and a youthful appear ance to the hair. It is not intended for the cure, mitigation or prevention of disease. Adv.
