People of every race and color are invited to attend and the more that come, the more deeply will the Outdoor Circle feel that its gift of light and music has been worth while. WAILIl) ENJOYS WAILUKU,. Dec. 21. The crowl that filled the armory to overflowing was proof that the first Wailuku Community Christmas tree was a great success. Even the original plans of the first committee did not call for so many children as . were present. When, however, it was generously ar ranged that the Walkapu, Waiehu and Walhee children should also have a part in the merriment, the amount of candy and apples was at once in creased to 1600 bags. The Salvation Army band began the program with, one number, then "Si lent Night" was sung by allx those present, ,. This carol and those that were sung afterward bad .been .prac tised in all the schools and many of the .churches or Wailuku in prepara tion for the event. A choir of some twenty voices," with . Charles N. Luf kin playing the cornet, led. The choir sang 'Noel. "Away, in a Manger was the net carol. Following this W. F. Crockett spoke In behalf of the ' Red Cross drive. . "O Come All Ye Faitb ful'. was i sung ; by the people. One number, was rendered by the band and the program closed with "America."

L. Dean Saturday. "If the occasion should arise I certainly should use my prerogative but there is no cause this time. "Miss Heuer has been an efficient and loyal teacher at the college and there is no evidence that she has done anything to influence the stud ents or give aid and comfort to the enemy. When any such evidence comes t& light it will be time enough to act." , Dr. Dean said that he had no com ments to make on the interview giveu by Miss Heuer to the morning paper Saturday, as he had not spoken to her concerning it, but a cursory examina tion did not show anything to-which exception might be taken. ROBS STORE To'gET MONEY FOR CHRISTMAS PRESENTS TO FRIENDS imbued with the spirit of Christ mas, and anxious to give his play mates a Yuletide remembrance, a Ha. waiian boy, 9 or 10 years old, entered a second-hand store owned by a Japa nese, stole a key and passed on to the living apartment, where he un locked a bureau drawer and stole $15j He then had the money cnangea into silver and, after spending most of it for candy, pie and other things to eat, distributed the remainder among his friends, giving each a silver dollar. In juvenile court Saturday the youngster broke down and cried, and his mother also wept, declaring she didn't want her son sent to the re form school. So the Japanese, who owns the second-hand store, relented and said he wouldn't press the charge, as it was Christmas.. The mother said she. would try and pay back to the Japanese.

If there have been mutual criticisms, let us forget them with the tol erant and kindly spirit that should, especially at this time, pervade every Christian community. We know our sins are many. Often we have drunk too much liquor which civilians have done scandalous and disgraceful things, as is the habit of men when drunk. whether in or out of the army. A gressed in other ways, with less pay the full penaltyl Some of you have, without discrimination, condemned us all for the shortcomings of a few. We may have thoughtlessly questioned your pa triotism, because of a few able-bodied men. idr.v seeking their pleasure or clinging too tenaciously to their business of money making. Let us forget-But especially since our country entered the Great War. many of you have exerted every effort to make us feel at home here. You now disre gard our uniform and judge us as you do civilians, irrespective of our c'othes. That is as it should be. That is all we ask. Some of your men now view us as our fathers did, with ill-concealed approval, your women meet-us unafraid and graciously, your children Btare admiringly. We have come far and may yet go farther, but your kindness will be long remembered. It has helped us retain, in this far-away meeting place of the races, the feeling that we are still men and soldiers of the United Stales. That you may know that soldiers appreciate and remember, again, to each and all of you, sincerest Christmas Greetings! PVT. GLENN E. HOOVER. BIG CHRISTMAS TREE SHINES AT Y. W. C. A.

A WEEK OUT OF WAGES Because he was earning 49 a week and forced to use it to support six relatives, including his parents, a young Russian boy appealed to Judge W. H. Heen Saturday and said he thought he should be allowed to keep his own mpney. He said he turned his wages over to his mother and .that she allowed him 50 cents a week. The youngster, who is somewhat of an artist, recently spent $2 for a cor respondence course in designing, and his parents promptly kicked him out of the house for several days. Judge Heen smoothed things over by telling the bov to keeD two dollars of wages each week and give the rest to his mother. Whereupon the lad responded: "Yes, sir.
