Importance of Play

"business of play" is increasing instead of
diminishing. This is as it should be, for, quite

the extension of play into the winter months, and
;-.he increasing demand for lighted playgrounds for
.evening use. Some six hundreu playgrounds are
now opened and lighted throughout the evening.
It is impossible to conceive of the number of un
healthy and unwholesome places from which chil
dren are thus saved.
The number of schools established to train play
ground leaders is increasing, and the Standard, of
those workers has been raised by civil service ex
aminations ''Mwint iiin thiiiianil mn a nil un.
men are now eninloved to dirert olav at recreation
centers. About three-quarters of a million boys
and girls daily swarm in the play centers, and
gome seven hundred school buildings are used fur
play after school hours. (Ine of the consequences
of this is the birth of a kindlier feelintr for the
.school buildings in the heart of the pupil who may
-have regarded that building as a place ot torture!
Throughout the country, we read, there are some
two hundred bathing beaches, four hundred public
baths, and three hundred swimming pools; and
during lu17 some four thousand playgrounds and
neighborhood recreation centers were maintained.
A recreation center often means an open place
where a brass band plays, and it sometimes means
an indoor place where one may take a book from
the library shelf; we learn tliat in 1917 about fifty
cities "specialized" in brass bands, sixty in orches
tras, and two hundred in community sings; that
there were debating clubs in forty cities and free
libraries in many more.
' While it is good to read that there has been an
increase of eighteen percent in the number of play
grounds operated and of fifty percent in "the dol
lars spent, we know that the present crowded play
and recreation centers serve only one in fifty of
those children who should be served We also
know that those who should be served indeed,
those who are being served are not only babies
and boys and girls and "ung people, but some
men and women who arc never going to grow old.

Secretary Daniels told a committee of
congressmen yesterday, intimating that no idea of
recalling destroyers from their work as convoys
for the transports had occurred to him because of
the presence of German submarines off the Atlan
tic Coast.
"Secretary Daniels will probably be beseeched to
do just this foolish thing by cowardly pacificist
and by such "influential patriots as William Ram
dolph Hearst ami the rest of that yellow breed
but the secretary of the navy knows that the great
bulk of Americans will he found- like the women

Hun Matrimony
SWIFT has been the growth of German state
powers since the Thirty Years' War reduced
the population by two-thirds. The Commission
whidi has been considering the recent decline of
the birth-rate brings in a more sensational recom
mendation than mediae valism ever conceived
nothing less than the compulsory marriage of all
Germans before their twentieth year is passed.
From 41,000,000 in 1871, the German peoples
grew to 66,000.000 in 1914. But the birth-rate was
already fast declining. Army officers were forbid
den to marry without dowries. Celibacy grew in
cities; and with it came a high rate of illegitimate
births. Hard living conditions led to late mar
riage. Many causes combining, the death-rate of
babies was in 1M3 forty-three per 1000 higher than
in England and Wales, and fifty-eight per 1000
higher than in New York City in 1916.
War. which has killed or incapacitated 2,000,000
men, did not mend matters. The commission finds
that in three war years the drop in birth-rate has
meant the loss of 2,000,000 infants. Imperial is
the remedy proposed ; children must marry before
they are twenty, and married childlessness is to
be punished how .we are not told.
J he rulers' greed for cannon-food" . will have
Germany, if this plan is adopted, far frorn the
practise of civilized nations. Trt France Txiys are
forbidden to marry unde( eigTiteen, girls Under fif
teen; and even if neither . parents nor grand
parents arc living, no one can marry under twenty
one without consent of a family council. Here
toth law and custom demand greater maturity as
a condition precedent to matrimony, and too early
marriage is recognized as inviting less healthy
progeny. It remains to be seen what German
public opinion will make of "child marriage for
Kaiser and Fatherland."

No War Time Creed
ANOTHER example of the fine spirit of co
operation displayed'- by religious organiza
tions, in aiding the chafifable war work of other
denominations has been afforded by the Salvation
Army drive, says the New York World. Bespeak
ing the interest of the Catholic Church in the suc
cess of the Army's canvass for funds and testify
ing to the support given by nou-Catholics to the
Catholic war drive. Mr". Lavelle. rector of St.
Patrick's Cathedral, has said:
Unr of the most striking rhungi'ii l.rnulit aliout ly

Would the warm indorsement of the charitable
activities of one religious faith on the part of an
other of different creed have been possible before
this country entered the war ' I hen Jew and Gen
tile, C atholic and Protestant, made their appeals
only to their own sects. But the support of the
Y. M. C. A. drive by Catholics and ol the Knights
of Columbus drive by Protectant: the participa
tion of all elements of the comimmitv without re
gard to race or creed in the ewili drive, the Red
Cross drive and finally in the Salvation Army can
vass, has lrne cumulative testimony to a rare
unity of religious interest in the work of winning
the war.
Patriotism has transcended denominational lines,
and the fact is an inspiring exemplification of
Americanism and of loyalty to country as the first
principle of faith.

Group of Structures Will po Up
On Reclaimed Ground
s Along the Canal
So tliat the army may carry out an
extenaive program of building work
that may mean the expenditure of a
arter of a nrillion or more at Knrt
f)e Russy, pressure" in being brought to
bear on the Territory by army men tol
nave started at the earliest possible
moment the work of filling in the i-
nodaled area in the Waikiki district.
work for which provision wss made
in measure passed at the recent special
session Of the legislature.
Unofficially it is announced that the
army will bnlld twenty-nine structures
ranging nn cost rrom $50,000 down on
land that will be reclaimed. These
will be on ground that will border the
big canal which Is to the central
fpature of the whole Waikiki reclama
tion scheme. For the most nsrt the
structures to be erected wfll be homes
for officers and in particular a residence
ror the commanding officer of the fort.
Plan For Work
One reason why in planning the be
ginning of the work it was decided to
start through the government reserve
tlon was to meet needs of the army snd
provide sites for the buildings needed
at Fort De Russy. As announced, the
Waikiki reclamation work will be done
in units, the first of which will extend
from the sea probably across Kala-
kaua Avenue. The completion of this
work will send the eansl through the
Fort De Russy tract, the ground re- ,
claimed being formed from the mate
rials dredged out of the csnal. With
this unit completed, the cost will be
assessed against the army and in this
manner new funds will he provided
with which to go on with the work.
The exact nature of the general build
ing plan contemplated at Fort De Russy
has not yet been announced, but sur
vey of the area where the new struc
tures will stand have been in the hands
of architects for some time and plans
for the buildings are well under way.
The army, it is stated, will be in a post
ilion to proceed with its buildinir work
Jong before it will be possible for the
Territory to finish the work of dredg
mg out the first unit of the canal,
which ultimately is to be a " mile in
length aad two hundred and fifty feet
in width
To Speed Work
It was believed that actual work on
thf big job of reclamation might not
be starred before October, but in view
of the needs of the army the Territory
is now striving to get things into shape
to make an earlier start and it is be
lieved that dirt may tfegisj to Ay by
mid-ommt.t ; ''; J M' ., '
Goyeroor-Dignatel JMfforthy hS
expressed anxiety to see the Waikiki
work start as soon as possible and haa
.indicated . that he will use every effort
to speed preliminaries.'' 'In Company
With W. R. Hobby, acting superinten
dent of public works, and James Wake
field of the harbor board, Governor
McCarthy yesterday made an inspec
tion of the area to lie reclaimed. The
course that the canal is to follow is
marked out by flags that msy be seen
from Kalakaua Avenue.
Certain legal preliminaries, it was
staied,: may have to be gone through
with and '.later projisbly condemnation
proceedings may have to be started by
the Territory to acquire land needed in
carrying out the project, but it is
thought that there ueed be little delay
ia advertising for bids on contracts
for the first unit of the work and the
next few weeks may see dredges in
operation, marking the first step iu
winning for the city a great area of
about 700 acres located in one' of the
most attractive and desirable districts
on the Islands.

Jamaica ginger is "hot stuff," so
burning ss.a matter of fart that it
is almost the last thing one would con
aider a satisfsetory "jag producer."
It is sn old time household and family
remedy for the ills that attend the
small hoy who has eaten unwisely of
that unripe fruit which is said to have
occasioned the loss of Kden, and for
similar ailments which grows ups suf
fer when they indulge unwisely - in
lobster Newburg. Then the medica
ment is taken in limited quantities
only, as matter of menace, almost.
But there are others who use Jamaica
ginger for an entirely different pur
pose. They like the burning sensation
ho better than does he or she who
takes it as' a medicine, but they seek
the after effects pf the alcoholic kick
and are willing to put np with the
liquid fire sensation to get it.
Mostly these persons are the habit
ual, heavy drinkers and to get the
"kick'' they iwant they wiD even
drink certain horse liniments.
Here in Honolulu there is a grow
ing demand for Jamaica ginger and
for other medicaments thst hsve a
high alcoholic content.
Sale Ia Stopped
. Benson, Smith has stopped the pro
miscuous selling of Jamaica ginger
and sells the preparation to such
families only as will use the purchase
for the purposes for which it Is In
tended and not aa a "boose sub
stitute. " Wherever prohibition has
gone into effect there has ever ensued
a growing demand for Jamaica ginger.
Not that prohibition engenders cramps
but because of the alcoholic basis of
the preparation. Honolulu is proving
to be no exception to the rule.
"The Benson, Smith Drug Company
has issued orders to all of its em
ployes not to sell Jamaica ginger,"
sid Mr. Hmith yesterday. "W did
this immediately after the Presides t
issued his proclamation creating Oak
a dry eone, for wrinoa that the con- '
coction is highly intoxicating. Since
then we have had numerous calls for

Mr. Smith gave this reply to the
query as to whether his 'company had
noticed an increased demand for the
preparation since the sale of boor was
forbidden. -Hutton
Sets Bottle
Liquor License Inspector Hutton has
recently taken bottles of Jamaica
ginger away from several persons, most
of whom were, as he describes them,
"old soaks."
In most of the larger drug stores
it was learned that the increase in
sales had not been sufficient to at
tract the attention of proprietors but
iu the stores in the Oriental sections
of the city the proprietors had noticed
that sales had doubled snd in some
instances increased in a still greater
proportion. One of the druggists in
terviewed said he had so many calls
he had stopped the sale except iu eases
where he knew or was given proof that
the purchase was for the purpose of
legitimate use.
Preparations of Jamaica ginger vari
ously contain from fifty to ninety
three percent alcohol and to get the
alcoholic kick the hardened drinker
is willing to accept the burn and ating
of the ginger.
There ar 14 other common prescription
and patent medicines in which the al
i iiliolic con t i'n t runs hih and some of
these are leported to have a consider
able demand at present.
In some states where there ore strin
gent prohibition lawa the druggists
hnve, for their own protection, had
a commission appointed to determine
what drugs and patent medicines should
not be sold because of their alcoholic
content and are abiding by the recom
mendationa of the commission.
Burden on Dealer
In the driest states grocers are pre
vented from selling ginger and certain
flavoring pxtracta and the druggists
use the utmost precautions in mailing
such sales. Grocers found the demand
for these things multiplied several
times over the ordinary aud far ahead
of anything that could be considered
legitimnto requirements. Horn precau
tionary course will probably be taken
here when the federal prohibition law
goes into effect for the seller must pro
tect himself from the danger of arrest,
