Child, federal food administrator for the territory, and executive officer of the territorial food commission, ex pects to leave for Washington Wed nesday. Aside from interviewing Federal Food Administrator Herbert Hoover and among other matters pertaining to Hawaii as regards the work of the local food bodies. Administrator Child will attend the conference-of state and territorial food administrators to be held in the national capital January 8 and 9. Mr. Child expects to leave Wednesday, providing he can close his local affairs in time. He will be absent from the territory about a month. - Hawaii's war time problems, em bracing labor and food conditions, were recently presented to the na tional administrator in a lengthy let ter sent to Herbert Hoover by the food commission. The administration expressed much favorable comment on the communication, and promised the commission Its entire support in solv ing these problems. One matter he will look into is the publicity campaign of the administra tion. He will urge that this material be forwarded to Hawaii as soon as It la off the press as. In thep ast, it has I been practically too old for convenient use upon its arrival here. He will urge, also, that the national adminis trator cooperate more closely with the territorial bodies. During Mr. Child's absence, the of fice force of the federal food com mission will be in charge. On the first of the year Miss Elizabeth Dutot WANT LEVER BILL TO APPLY HERE That the provisions of the Lever bill, providing for farm extension and the appointment of county agents to assist the farmers and M;e federal farm loan act should be rade p;li cable to the Hawaiian islands, is the opinion of members of the food com mission who, within a short time, may ask Washington to allow Hawaii an opportunity to benefit from this leg islation. After discussing the matters in formally, the mgpbers of the commis sion express the freiief thai bolh should be made applicable here. The food commission already has county agents at work on the different is lands, but these were appointed at the commission's own volition. Re ports thus far received show that they have been doing splendid work, proving a real help to the small farm er, planter, homesteader and layman. Under the farm lean act, smau lui mers and homesteaders are given fi nancial aid under certain conditions to broaden out in their work and to assist then! in other ways. 3 Christmas -. 1917 If We hope the candle of happiness and prosperity will burn brightly for you on CHRISTMAS DAY4 and on every day throughout the year!
