GERMANS OCCUPY BRUSSELS London Official despatches by way of Paris last night say that the Ger mans occupy Brussels, the advance guard entering the city during the night, follow ed by strong columns. Belgians made no resistance. Continued from page 5 Taking the year as a whole, I feel that the Chamber, i n its growth, development and accom plishments, has nothing for which it need be ashamed. It has made a good start. It is no longer a small organization, howevnr, and must in the future accept larger responsibilities to be thrust upon it. It must be progressive and ag gressive, but at the same time it must at nil times and under all circumstances be right. That is the keynote, In looking back over the twelve months now behind us, I feel that we have several times narrowly escaped making blunders, but some how or other we have managed to keep on nd even keel and do the right thing at the prop er time. There is much to be done in the future. A casual student of our problems may ask: "Why a Cham ber of Commerce in a small com munity like this? What is there to do?" If the Kauai Chamber of Com merce did no more than bring the business men of this island togeth er so that they might exchange views, touch shoulders and spend a few pleasant hours together now j and again, it has and will accom plish a very great deal. But there is much real work to do much that should and must be accom plished. These matters will be as sembled, worked out and present ed to you from time to time by your committees. If you attend the meetings regularly and follow up the various subjects and phases of each as they are unwound in the future months, you will soon dis cover the answers to these ques tions, ana realize tnat there are the very greatest reasons for the Kauai Chamber of Commerce, Personally, I wish to congratu late you upon the first year of your history as an organization. The development of the Chamber has been due to your individual and united efforts, and I take this oc casion to thank you, one and all, for the assistance you have render ed me in my efforts to preside over the business and general affairs of the Chamber.

Letters presented at the meeting bv members from the Waimea side in regard to a proposed tour of Kauai by the Bostonians were read, and various expressions were advanced favorable t o bringing the troupe over here.
