thf children who should go tlu-re and
many have- to walk to another school
a long distance away.
Into this building, which measures
inside litteen feet wide and thirty-two
fett long, are crowded fifty-one small
children, of the first graue age. un
der the supervision of one teacher.
ithout even sufficient light and
sumtary arrangements, the entire
building i.s in a deplorable condition,
and H a menace to the health of both
pupils and teacher. Fourteen sells
are arranged in the small room in two
rows, each seat containing three pu
pils, the rest of the children finding
seats in places provided for them by
the teacher. The ventilation of the
room is very poor, and wheji it rains
It is necessary to close the windows,
tor the Manoa rains are sweeping and
frequent. This only makes the air in
the room worse. One of the windows
on the mauka side of the room is
minus a pane of glass and into this
the rain beats whenever the weather
is bad. The roof leaks in several
places and the water drips down to
the floor and often on the heads of
the pupils. There is not even a cloak
room where the children may hang
their hats and coats not even such a
simple arrangement as a few nails on
the interior of the building. As a re
sult of this, the children have to place
their hats and wraps on the veranda,
ajid when it rains the teacher is forced
to go out and bring them in.
School Work Retarded.
In the crowded condition which ex
ists at this school, the teacher has
found it difficult to instruct her pu
pils In a satisfactory manner. Sitting
88 they do, three at a desk, the lessons
in writing are the ones which cause
the most trouble. The teacher has di
vided the day into two sessions, one
for the pupils who are advanced in
their, wcrk and the other for the rest
of the fifty-one. The pupils are all
bright and the instructor has found
them to be orderly, and, on the whole,
Willing to learn.
The school has the benefit of the
services of a janitor who comes once
a week, but at other times the teacher
is forced to do any cleaning up which
may have to be done. In the larger
schools where the sanitary conditions
are better, the services of a janitor are
needed less frequently, but in a place
where there are few, if any, sanitary
arrangrnents: where the school house
becomes dirty with the dust blown by
the Manoa winds, the building needs
to be cleaned at least two or three
times a week to protect the health of
the pupils and teachers, it is declared.
The only source of water supply the
school can get is a single water-tap,
with one tin cup for the use of all the
fifty-one pupils. During the time when
the cholera threatened lronoluki, it is
alleged that the children of this cshool
drank the water from taro patches
nearby on account of the fact that
there was no' city water piped to the
school. This condition was noticed at
the time by a county official who suc
ceeded in obtaining an appropriation
of a certain sum of money with which
a pipe to supply the school with water
When the Manoa residents com
plained a short time ago that this
school had In attendance more chil
dren than could be handled by the one
teacher, they were told, according to
statements yesterday, that the teach
er should not let into the school more
pupils than she knew she could teach
successfully. It then remained with
the parents of the children whether
or not they would have their chil
dren in school under this crowded
condition, or not have them in pchool
at all. The Manoa school is for first,
second and third grades only, and as
a result of this, many of the children
in the valley, whose parents cannot
afford to pay their carfare to and
from school, are forced to walk to
town every morning in order to at
tend the Kaahumanu school, and
then walk back home again in the
evening. Many of the children are
small, and it is a long walk for them,
and sometimes makes them late for
school, say the parents.
About fifteen feet mauka, of the
present building is another larger
building which was at one time used
by the board of public instruction as
a BChool building. This building is
at present in a dilapidated condition,
minus windows and no steps leading
to the porch. When advances were
made by the residents of Manoa in
the effort to have this building re
modeled and opened as a school, they
were confronted with the statement
that there was" no money available
for the purchasing of equipment, and
the matter was dropped. This build
ing, it is claimed, is used for immoral
purposes at night and as yet nothing
has been done to stop the disorderly
conduct which is increasing in the
vicinity. The building affords shelter
for hoodlums and loose characters.
If the building were at least closed
up. assert the residents, this state of
affairs could be done away with. The
ravishing of a young Chinese-Hawaiian
girl, which was committed by
two hoodlums a short time ago, took
place near this building. People liv
ing in the vicinity say that they heard
the screams of the young girl, and
when thry were asked why they did
not go to her help they replied that
they were so used to such things that
they thought nothing of it.
It would greatly relieve the situa
tion, according to Manoa residents, if
this larger building could be fixed up
and used as a school. If this wore
done, it would not be necessary for
n'anv of the children to have to 20 to
the Kaahumanu school. Even if the
county did not see fit to convert h
building into a school house, it could
at least be fixed up and used as a play
room for the children v ho now at
tend the present school. '
As it is now, when it rains the chil
dren are forced to stay indoors dur
ing recess time, thus making the air j
in the room more stiflirg. During re
cess, between the first and second
session, the teacher uses this time to
air the room in the best way possible.
Then, when jt rains, and the pupils
are f:;r! to ft ay indoors, the win
dows all nave to be closed in order to
keep the rain out, anJ this makes
matters wors It 1 claimed that the
windows which once graced the larger
building have been preserved, and
merely by ttu installing of thsf and
the fixing of the door, the structure
could be converted into a comfortable
place for the children to use as a play
room when it rains during the recess
That the present building is un
safe can be readily ce-en by anyone
who would care to make the investi
gation While the supports which
hold the building off the ground are
in fairly good condition, th- planks
which hold the supports in place are
rotten. Great pjttes of the rotten
uc-cd can be easily torn out by hand.
When application was rr.ade some
time ago to have this condition
remedied, some workmen were sent
up and. instead of replacing the old
supports, they simply nailed boards
over the rotten places.
Perhaps the most glaring instance
of sanitary laxity on the grounds are
the toilets for the use of the pupils.
Boih are earth toilets. These two
structures are nothing more than huts,
and very small. A foul stench issues
continually, and although a quantity
of lirx;e is furnished by the county for
use in these places, and is used con
tinually by the janitor and the
teacher, the condition does not seem
to become any better. The latrine
which is used by the bys. and which
is now located in their building, was
formerly on the outside, but through
the efforts of the teacher, the removal
to the inside was made. The two
buildings are about six feet apart and
there is little privacy. Although,
when they were erected, the pits were
dug down to the sand level, this was
all that was done to improve the
Eanitary conditions. It seems that at
least one of the buildings could be
located at the farther end of the lot.
They are surrounded by a mass of
weeds and grass and are continually
endangering the health of the pupils.
The board of education has asked
the legislature for an appropriation of
$1200 for the erection of a two-room
pavilion type of school to replace
the present building. As it now
stands, however, there can be no pos
sible relief for the school this year,
save through the nfcw board of super
visors, on account of the fact that
should this money be appropriated it
would not be aailable until July 1 of
this. .:r. the bennum; ef the flj-cal

erected it will rr.ean accommodation
for a large number of pupils, and pro
vide a .-chool for those h f:o have been
in the habit of haviug tj go to the
Kaanunianu building on account of
thtre beiug no room in the present
.Manoa school. The piece of ground
on which the present building now
tar.ds is considered one of the best
sites that cojld be chosen for the
erection of a school building.
Included in (he attendance at the
present school are Japanese. Chinese.
Portuguese, Hawaiiaos. part Hawaii
an;, Porto liicans and one German.
Hew Japan Does It
On a lot adjoining the Manoa
school stands the Japanese Buddist
school, a small building but in perfect
repair. This school has large win
dows, two big class rooms and every
arrangement for the admission of
fresh air and light. Two large tanks
supply the school with water and the
out houses are clean and in first-class
condition. Th'is building is twenty
feet wide and forty feet long, divided
into two separate class rooms; tnere
are smaller buildings on the outside
which also serve as class-rooms when
the occasion arises. Thirty-four chil
dren attend this school from two
o'clock until five o'clock in the after
noon, and fourteen large double
benches and four smaller ones 6eat
them all comfortably. Thi3 is strictly
a Japanese school and is presided
over by a single teacher.
The matter of improving the con
dition of the schoolhouse was brought
before a meeting of the Manoa Im
provement Club last Monday night at
which time is was decided to take
action in securing a new building. All
efforts from the Manoa residents to
get help from iue department of pub
lic instruction have been met with
the answer, they say, "Go to the
board of supervisors. It is hoped
that the new board of supervisors,
which will baye chsrge of the matter
of 'repairing all school buildings, will
look into the present condition of the
school and do something toward get
ting a new building and improving
the insanitary conditions. -

PLENTY OF CASH
FOR BIG PARADE
That there will be sufficient funds
on hand for successfully carrying out
the Floral Parade and the Mid-Winter
Carnival next month is the gist of a re
port which has just been submitted lo j
Director-General Chillingworth by the!
finance committee. j
Chairman Waldron, of the finance '
committee, has assured the various j
committees that there will tw noth
ing lacking in the way of funds for
the festivities, and this news la, en
couraging to those committees which
are now working on the different sec
tions of the parade in order to make
it the most successful one ever held.
The undertaking is a very large one
and there are many responsibilities
connected w ith it, and the rush of tou
rists which has commenced to be di
rected toward Hawaii proved that thj
week of celebration will not be lack,
ing patrons. "There has never for a
moment been any doubt that the com
munity would respond to our call for
'funds," said Mr. Chillingworth, "and
it is to the financial offerings that
we contribute our success. The mili
tary section of the parade promised
to be bigger and better this year than
ever before. The new troops which
have just arrived in Hawaii will have
a chance to make an entry and thns
add to the already largo section
which is being planned by the military.

The Masterpiece of 48 Engineers. They Had a Hand
in Building 200,000 Cars of QJ Weil-Known Makes
Don't Fail to See This Car It is
' In the HUDSON "37" is expressed the com
bined skill and experience of the greatest body
of automobile engineers in the country
These men represent the training of the
greatest factories in the world. They have
learned what experience has taught the 97 prin
cipal makers .bf Europe and America.
They were active, important members of
those various organizations and, combined, had
a hand in the production of more than 200,000
Imagine what strides, what advancement,
men of such experience are bound to offer in the
car which all have joined in perfecting.
You probably have an ideal of what a motor
car should be. Your knowledge of automobile
shortcomings undoubtedly has suggested
improvements which you would have in a car
if it were built to your order.
Well, here is where you will find not only
what you wish to see, but also what has been
expressed through the experience that has been
gained from the 200,000 owners who have used
the cars which these men have helped- to build.
It is all in the one car. It expresses as nearly
the limit of four-cylinder construction as has
It Has Features
No Other Car Possesses
No car you can get today, regardless of
price, has all the features that are offered in the ,
4. t, i
Consider for a moment the rapid advance
ment that has been made in motor car building.
It is almost as stardmg as are the changes in
fashion. Think how strange are the open cars of
two years ago. What proportion of their original
cost do you think such cars now bring? It is
not due to wear that their value has declined so
much. No, it is the advance that has been made
iii automobile building since the open cars were
put on the market.
With that thought in mind you must rec
ognize the importance of choosing wisely now.
Automobiles as now built the jld be of service for
many years and you don't want to feel that you
will have to buy a new car in two, three or four
years because the one you have just purchased
wiil, at that time, be out of date.
The Greatest Engineer of All Their Chief
At the head of these experts is Howard E. Coffin, the
foremost automobile engineer of America, recognized here
and abroad as the most startlingly original designer the
industry has produced.
His genius is an inspiration to his associates. From hiai
they have gained in ability. On account of them he hds
become a broader and more versatile builder.
What one man lacked in experier.ee, some one of his
associates was able to supply. The problems one was
unable to solve, others soon found the answer for.
fcThat accounts for the completeness of this car. That
accounts for the fact that you will find on it the very things
that you have wished to find on an automobile. That
explains why this car will do the things which other fc-ur-cylinder
automobiles have failed to accomplish
Your Safety in This Choice
No one b likely to soon have many new idas to offer
that these 48 engineers have not already anticipated.
They all combine in saying that the New HUDSON
"37" represents the best that there is in four-cylinder
They proved every move they have nade ihroi'&h
20,000 miles of gruelling country, mountainous, mud ; ii :
The most aburive treatment one of ;he most skilled
drivers in the world could give this car in the thousands
cf miles he drove it, without developing j single weakness,
or discovering a single detail in which iir.provrment cei'U
be made either in design, construction, simplify, e-?y
riding qualities, responsiveness, safety, or pr-''" r, is a
guarantee that you will find it expresses your ideal of
what a four-cylinder car should be.
