Raise a War Garden
the food administration in this Ter-
W ritory was greatly assisted by the success
last season of war gardens. Again the people of
Hawaii are asked to raise a war garden. They
are urged to try and raise enough food to supply
household needs .for a year. War gardeners are
urged to make an estimate of what they are likely
to require in the way of food and then make an
effort to make the soil produce it.
The hoe has become a weapon of war. The food
situation was never more serious than now. Sav
ing food is one solution of the world shortage;
substitution, is another, but equally important is
the spring-edict from the department of agricul
ture and the federal food administration that the
country 'must plant and produce more food this
year than ever before.
Mr. Hoover says that this demand must be ap
preciated and acted upon promptly by every home
in America. Every householder with eVen a little
land1 to 'spare should buy a hoe.' The hoe should

GERMANY'S total indebtedness is $31,000,
000,000 which means that each one of her
(iR.000,000 inhabitants, men and women and chil
dren, will be in debt $456. Here in America, with
a population of 110.000,000 our total indebtedness,
is only $6,000,000,000, or a per capita indebtedness
of only one-eighth of that of the German citizen,
a matter of $57 each. We can run our Liberty
Bond flotations up to $50,000,000,000 before each
one of us owes as much as each German acres
the Rhine.
In other words, we can run this war at our
present rate of expenditures for eight years before
we are as badly off as the Germans are today.
Don't be frightened at the money we are spend
ing. We are not "breaking" ourselves. We are
spending very little of our national wealth. If
this war lasts for eight years Germany will be so
badly "broke" it can never be put together again.

Oahu has been casting rather a dubious eve
over at Kauai during the past few months and that
light little isle comes right back in a way that
should make Oahu and each of the other islands
buck up and hustle. The Garden Islanders have
subscribed their Liberty Loan quota and then
turned around and subscribed it over again. That's
Kauai's answer to the challenge to her loyalty. It
is a mighty substantial reply, too.

Jn making the chance it was an
nounced that the purpose of the lease
to be given will be to develop the is
land rather than to obtain a high
rental for it, which might force ex

vision of the lease will be that not
more than 800 head of beef cattle be
paatured on the island though this
number may be iuoreaaed in the dis

operate a can making plant.
