A THOUGHT fOIi TODAY 'All the good of vhich humanity is capahtei comprised in olediencc. Stuart Mill GOVERNOR JUDD ON STATEHOOD ' Governor Judd has vetoed the joint legislative resolution on statehood. It is an enlightening message of disapproval, even if it can scarcely 1 called, as a state document, convincing or conclusive. Governor Judd's veto message covers ten and onehalf typewritten rages. Of this, ne page is devoted to reciting the preamble and gist of the resolution a repetition of its general terms. Five pages are devoted to pointing out defects and inaccuracies in wording, mostly minor. None of the alleged faulty phraseolog has any direct bearing on the question whether Hawaii should or should not seek statehood. Three pages are devoted to elucidating the theory that if Hawaii became a state, title to a the present public (territorial) lands inigh pass to the federal government, and Hawai thus lose revenues averaging some $$00,000 jearly. Few reasons are advanced why Hawaii woul lose this land. In fact, as this portion of th governor's message is analyzed, he has raised little more than a possibility. There is, on the contrary, at least equal reason to believe that a territory which came Into the American Union by voluntary annexation, and which brought with It land for the "public domain which the federal government never would have had, even remotely, under the U. S. com missioner of public lands, can, on becoming a state, retain that land as a state property, not to be incorporated into the federal holdings. In the remaining page and a half, Governor Jndd has outlined his own attitude, toward statehood. And this is what he says: The highest political status obtainable under cur system of government a sovereign state should be the aim of our territory. Support should be given to all measures Improving our status so that when the time Is opportune we will be ready, without qualification, to be admitted Into the union cf the states. In my opinion, support of this measure at this time would not Improve our status. Since our annexation to the United States our advancement has been little short of phenomenal. In many respects we are now prepared for the responsibilities of statehood. I believe, however, that the time is not yet opportune and that it would be unwise to make this request at present. The effect might mar thexceedingly friendly attitude which the Congress has shown towards us for many ycare. and would present to the Congress a highly controversial question which would not redound to the best Interests of the land we so dearly love. The main reason why we have been so often successful with our petitions to the Congress Is that the Congress and the Washington officials have come to realize that we have a habit of making requests which generally should be granted requests supported by arguments difficult to refute. Let us keep up this habit. Its psychological effect on Washington is obvious. Analyze this, and there will be found only one reason advanced against statehood: " . . it would be unwise to make this request at pres ent. The effect might mar the exceedingly friendly attitude which, Congress has shown to wards us for many years, and would present to the Congress a highly controversial ques tion which would not redound to the best in terests of the land we so dearly love." The governor does not explain why the state hood issue must constitute a "highly controversial question," nor why, even if it should become such, the "best interests" of Hawaii might be injured. This section of the message, like that on public lands, is both vague and incon elusive. f His general attitude may be summed up in the phrases repeated several times in the mes sage: "the time is not yef opportune" "it would be unwise to make this request at pres ent." Statement of opinion, certainly, but not co gent reasons, and backed up by no recital of facts whatever as to why the time is not op portune, or when the time will be opportune. Having searched the governor's message in rain for a real reason against statehood, an other aspect of this important matter cannot escape notice. The traditional attitude of the Republican party in Hawaii is professedly and emphati cally in favor of statehood and the governor is at least the titular head of that party m Hawaii. The party and the electorate in general quite naturally look to the governor of Hawaii as the shining exemplar of party regularity and the protector of the party faith. He is appointed by a Republican President, and is the direct representative of that President in the territory. "What is the position of the Republican party of Hawaii on statehood? "Statehood for Hawaii" has been a party slogan for many years written into nlatf nrms. i offered to voters, pledged by candidates. Going just briefly into party historv, the last three territorial platforms of the Republican party have definitely and distinctly pledged that party's representatives to work for statehood. We find such a pledge written large in the Republican platforms of 1920, 1023 and 1030. "True, the party has not set a definite date for statehood, but it has certainly pledged its good faith to support measures which constitute a practical move to obtain statehood. Governor Judd is a lifelong Republican. He has loen successively treasurer and chairman of the Republican territorial central committee the campaign head of the party in Hawaii. As a Republican, he served in the territorial senate for eight years years during which the pledge of the Republican party on statehood grew into a definite platform plank. He served as the president of the senate for a term. He served as a member of the board of supervisors. Often an office holder, always a Republican, he now vetoes a legislative resolution which seeks definitely to put into action the professed principle and attitude of his party. Our disappointment "at this revelation of Governor Judd's attitude is not only in the matter but in the manner of it. In spite of the resounding declarations in the first three paragraphs of his veto message quoted fully above, we fail to find in his mes sage any real conviction that the electorate of Hawaii is to be entrusted with the responsibil ities of statehood. We fail to find any shining faith in the abilities and intentions of the great mass of his fellow-citizens of this territory. We fail to find any inspiration for the people of Hawaii to work for greater self-government. We find, instead, a denial of confidence and an undertone of distrust. 2s"o "child born under our Flag" will get any surge of patriotic emotion from this message of misgiving, and no adult will extract from its measured phrases any reasoned point against the joint resolution. The governor's action may temporarily delay the appeal to Congress but cannot long pre vent it He has done nothing to still the stead ily growing sentiment for greater fcelf-govern-ment and greater representation in Washing ton. It is, indeed, quite likely that his mes sage, by centering attention on the sort of op position which statehood is encountering, will benefit the cause of statehood's" advocates. STEALING HEFLIN'S STUFF The methods to which territorial senators re sorted in speeches in the senate session Thursday morning were never excelled by the late and unlamented member of the United States senate, Tom Heflin of Alabama, at the height of his infamous career. For many years Tom Heflin, a great hulk of a man with a booming voice, was a member of the national house of representatives where he enjoyed some popularity for his capacity to recite stories in the most accomplished southern manner and even more popularity because his speeches were comparatively few and short. And by reason of this experience and politi cal circumstances in which the Ku Klux Klan figured he was finally sent to the United States senate, that august body of 96 men who meet in one of the world's greatest forums and en joy the privilege of unlimited debate. All those who have visited the national capitol know how the senate chamber is situated. Below a wide skylight, on a carpeted floor, are the mahogany desks, set in a semi circle facing the vice president. The decorated walls, all details of the appointments, are in keeping with the dignity of the body. Above on all sides are the galleries. In back of the vice president is the press gallery where the press of the world is representatedJ It is the great listening post of American public affairs. That was just too much for Tom Heflin. The privilege of unrestrained debate with the news papermen listening in was more than he could stand, ne had six years to go. His favorite method was to set up a straw man and knock it down. His bugaboo was Wall St.," the "3Ioney Trust" and "the power of gold." Later he added to this the pope and the Roman Catholic church. Tom Heflin shed many crocodile . tears for 'humanity" and noisily fought "the power of gold." When he could not attack an issue on anv other grounds he used one of these, advancing in the full glory of a powerful voice like Don Quixote. The real facts and points at issue were not for him. The newspapermen listened to Tom Heflin or a good many months and soon discovered lis claims were empty and that his purpose was to use them to project himself upon the na tional political stage. When he arose to speak, they would rise from their places and walk out. That was the bitterest cut of all. And it was then that Tom Heflin added the press to his list of pet bogies. It was "muzzled," he said ABOUT TO PART, WE SALUTE THEE. HAWAII (Rrlnjc the "gratful expression of a 'Service man who has been here two year.") For two brief years, hast spread a- generous feast. Shall we. ill mannered guests, depart. Our grateful praise unspoken? That must not be. Too many times at close of day. Our eyes have reveled In thy glorious scene. Too many times the gentle note of dove And fragrance of gardenia soothed our souls At Dawn's awakening. Too many times the soft and sensuous Mora Has silvered gently stirring palms Where Lewers meets Kaiia. - For mlghtly breakers at KawaOoa, For purple seas from flowered Tantalus. For gently murmuring tides at Lanika!, For swaying palms and jade green billows At the Waialae. For infinite charm In earth and sky and sea. We do thee obeisance, Hawaii. And to our hosts. The strong need not our song. Yet do we pause In homage to thy Chief. Himself a soldier. Friend to us who guard. And to that Outdoor Circle, noble minds. Who shield thy priceless heritage, sweet Nature, From petty visioned money .mad. Continuance. And they who at Palama and elsewhere Follow the Master's footsteps, serving Man, And they who gave and keep that gem Which holds thy Art. and they Who proffer us, so far removed from Cultural source, Art, Music, Drama, here, our grateful phrase. We turn to them whose praise Is little sung, The poor and humble who have served our needs, The faithful ones who bring our daily bread, -The smiling flower girls, the lads who, keep Our motor right, all Nippon 6prung. Them do we leave with sorrow, and To offspring of this valorous race Who are become compatriot, we say. Your courage, thrift and courtesy we prize. To large and smiling Anna, she who makes Our leis, and gives us often passing fragrant flowers, To Yamato and Walter at the club Whence outriggers fare forth at Waikiki, To faithful caddie, Portygee, we tninc, And Natives chanting old Hawaii's hymns. To Comrades of the Forces, Land and Sea, Our blessing and Aloha as we part. ANNUAL SQUID DAY FLANS ABANDONED Honolulu's annual Squid Day, scheduled for tomorrow, has been abandoned. A survey of the Squid situation, conducted by Dr. Keoki Miranda, master of the Squids at Kewalo Basin, has shown that members of the hoqse of representatives have not only bolted an extra session of the legislature, but, with the senators, have bolted all the Sqnids In town as well. . This, it is claimed, was caused by the large number of luaus given during the legislative session. Due to the lack of Squid, there can't be any Squid Day; and anyway the boys who are members of the Ala Moana Dice & Backgammon club, and who work now and then at the government stables, didn't get their rennested $1.74 appropriation from the legisla ture to buy a new deck of marked cards, and are go- inz to vote the Democratic ticket next time.

The Star-Bulletin.

Gratefully. MARY HAAHEO ATCHERLEY, tNee Leleo Klnimaka.) Where East Meets West t . ' , - i i By GEORGE SAKAMAKi IH Though wee-golf has died here, reports indicate that the craze which gripped us last fall is now sweeping: throughout Japan. Everyone, young: and old, men and women seems to be interested in the game. It is being widely hcralded-as a democratic influence, drawing out persons from all ranks of lire to rub shoulders wwa one MEANING OF FREE WHEELING Editor, The Star-Bulletin. Sir: Just what does "free wheeling" mean? Have noted that the expression has been used frequently of late. . If there has been an explanation of the term made, the writer must have been delinquent at the time. QUESTION ASKER. In the conventional system of transmission and clutches, the clutch is the connecting link between the engine and the driveshaft, the transmission gears being merely a device for changing the speed at ,which the driveshaft turns in relation to the speed at which the engine crankshaft turns. The clutch, when engaged, makes, by engagement, rigid contact, so that as the engine crankshaft turns, so must the driveshaft turn and apply power through other gears in the differential to the rear axle and wheels. If the throttle is closed when the car is under momentum, the rear wheels force the continued rotation of the driveshaft. and through the fixed contact of the clutch, if it is kept engaged, the continued rotation of the engine crankshaft. This forces the pistons in cylinders to push against compression until the braking effect of that compression resistance has brought the car speed down to a crawL If, however, the clutch is released when the throttle is closed, the car coasts freely, because then there is no contact with the engine crankshaft. In free wheeling a small, simple unit radically changes this operation. Hie outer casing of this unit is coupled to the engine and rotates with the crankshaft. Its inner core is coupled to and rotates with the driveshaft. That inner core has three wedge-shaped grooves, deep at one side, shallow at the other. In each of those three grooves are four bearings graduated In size to correspond with the shape of the grooves. When the throttle is opened and crankshaft and outer casing of the free wheeling unit are set in rotation, the bearings are forced to the shallow side of the grooves until pressure makes engagement with the core. Core and drifeshaft then rotate with the outer casing, applying power to the wheels. When the throttle is closed the rotation speed of the unit's outer casing slows down to engine idling speed because the bearings, when pressure on them is removed, no longer engage the core. Rights Versus Duties f - By GLENN FRANK President of University of Wisconsin . and Famous Editor Long ago the great and gifted Ttalian leader, Maz-zini, preached the gospel of the duties of man as the imperative other half of the gospel of the rights of man. " " As one looks about the world today, one sees the world as one big battlefield on which two philosophies are waging a fight to the death the philosophy of rights and the philosophy of duties. The three political, social and ecenomlc philosophies that are seeking each to capture the mind and allegiance of modern mankind are;," Capitalism. .. Fascism. . - ... , : - Communism. rinrrftaiism rests on a nhilosonhy of rights. Organized capital fights for the rights of profit. Organized labor fights for the rights of wages. "A hundred other things are battled over In the labor-caDital conflict, but they all center around labor's getting its fair share of the Joint product of industry in wages and capital getting its fair share In profits. - Fascism and Communism, on the other hand, rest on a philosophy of duties. ; Both trample on the old individualism with: the demand that the central issue of the age Is the Individual's, sense of duty to the group, to the nation, to the social order. And both stand ready to compel this sense of duty if it does not already exist in the individual. Capitalistic America may base Its Constitution on a bill of rights. Fascist Italy and Communistic Russia alike base their Constitutions on a bill of duties. A philosophy of rights gives man his liberties. A philosophy of Huties takes his liberties away. Each is but a half -key to the future. , The great problem is how to build a civilization on a philosophy that includes 1 recognition of both the rights and the duties of man. The old individualism was long on rights and short on duties; the Fascisms and Communisms of today are long on duties and short on rights; we must, in America, build a new individualism by cooperative organization and action in which individuals may, acting together, safeguard rights that otherwise are doomed. of denunciation, the press of the country, strange to relate, still survives, , " Tom Heflin is back home in Alabama. He attained the spotlight, but couldn't stand the glare. It cast him and his accusations in their true light. He went the way of all public figures whose methods are those of the demagogue. Customs House Completed The Yokohama customs house, damaged by the great earthquake and fire of 1923, has been completed. Japanese Win Vote Japanese who served in the Canadian forces during the European war are now entitled to vote in the elections in British Columbia. They will vote in the election which will be conducted this summer. This is the first time that the franchise has been granted these Japanese who have been fighting for It for the last 13 years. m 1 A Seasonal Occupation Fecundity is seasonal, according to Ikuzo Matsubayashl of the education office's physical training institute in Japan, who declares that the rate of Japanese women's fecundity Is highest in the warm spring months of April. May and June, followed by a sudden and notable fall In July, August and September. January, February and March are said to produce a higher rate than in October, November and December. Physical effects of the hot summer season are considered the cause for the fall in the rate for the autumn months.

In most of the department stores and tn many theaters as well as in congested districts of the cities, many links have already cropped up as fast as they did in Honolulu. The latest is a link built tn Osaka called the Dojima Tom Thumb poll course, patterned after the original American Tom Thumb links. It covers an area of approximately one-half an acre. Kyoto Fourth City Kyoto has recently annexed Its rural districts and now calls itself the fourth largest city In the m-orld. Its rural districts, however, consist in the main of paddy. fields and farm houses. Kyoto may be the fourth city, but only in point of land area. The population of the city was 755.200 before the extension of its city limits. It cannot be much larger with the acquisition of rice fields. As far as area goes, the city and county of Honolulu is perhaps the largest In the world, should its jurisdiction over the surrounding waters of the Pacific be taken into account. Unt effects of climatic condition upon human fertility. Interested la Law A cross section of the 13T7 graduates of the Kyoto Imperial university shows that modern university students In Japan are Interested most in the study of law. It is true that this particular university is best known for It legal courses, but the proportion of its law graduates is overwhelmingly large compared with the number graduating' from the other departments. Ranking next to law are graduates of the economic and literary departments. The statistic shows the distribution as follows: 470 from the law department: 245. economic; 203, literary: 165. technical: 111, medical; 102, agricultural; 1. physical. Chauffeur Strike Averted The police of Osaka recently frustrated the plan for a general strike of chauffeurs of about 5000 taxis. The chauffeurs were asking for an increase in salaries. It was a poor time to start any demonstration to demand a raise when salaries were being slashed In most other vocations. The taxi operators, however, must have had just cause to ask for an increase. It is Incredible that they could man tain a daily livelihood when expenses are more than double that In America, while their rates are a great deal less than one-half the charge here. Riding on good American cars which are run by expensive imported gasoline, at the average charge of 50 sen to one yen to any distant point within the city limits, makes It extremely difficult for the Japanese chauffeurs to earn even their daily sustenance.

"his is said to.be the first time a c. jple has been married in the air in Japan.. It seems the Japanese, too, axe turning skyward; what they need to remember is to keep their feet on the ground and not be swept away by accelerated modern innovations. The Right Word By M.
