Biilt of this, the children have to place
their hats and wraps on thr veranda,
and when it rains the teacher is forced

School Work Retarded.
In the crowded condition which ex
ists at this school, the teacher has
tound it difficult to instruct her pu
pils in a satisfactory manner. Sitting
s 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 work 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
arrangments: 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 Honolulu, it is
alleged that the children of this cshool
drank the water from fcaro patches
nearby on account of the fact that
there waa 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
buildins which was at one time used
by the board of public instruction as
a school building. This building is
at present in a dilapidated condition,
minus windows and no steps leadine
to the porch. When advances were
made by the residents of .Manoa in
th" 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 hocdlums and loose characters.
If the building were at least closed
up, assert the residents, tnis 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 they 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 he fixed up
and used as a school. If this were
done, it would not be necessary for
faiiv of the children to hpve to go to
the Kaahumanu school. Even if the
county did not see fit to convert the
building Into a school house, it could
at least he fixed up and used as a play
room for the children who 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
in the room more stifling. During re
cess, between the first and second
session, the teacher uses this time to
air the 'room in the best way possible.
Then. .hn it rains, and the pupils'
are forced to stay indoors, rue win-'
lo..s all nave to be closed n order i
keep the rain out, and tiis makes
matters worte It is claimed tin!' the
windows which once graced the larger

crfntiiiually. and although a quantity
ot lime is furnished by th county for
use it: 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 bcTs, 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 thjy were erected, the pits were
dug down to the sand level, this was
all that was done to improve the
sanitary 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 new board of super
visors, on account of the fact that
should this money be appropriated it

The Masterpiece of 48 Engineers. They Had a Hand
in Building 200,000 Cars of QJ Well-Known Makes
Don't Fail to See This Car It is Here
IntHe 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 of 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 ofter 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 u-ed
the cars which these men have helped to build.
It is all in the one car. It expresses as nearly

Consider for a moment the rapid advance
ment that has been made in motor car building.
It is almot as startling 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
in automobile building since the open cars were
put cn the market.
With that thought in mind you must rec
cgi.ize the importance of choosing wisely now.
Automobilcb as now bailt sh.-.aki 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
will, at that time, be out of date.
The Greatest Engineer of AH Their Chief
At the head of these experts is Howard E. Coffin, the
foremost automobile engineer of America, recognized here
and abroad a3 the most start lingly original designer the
industry has produced.
His genius is an inspiration to his associates. From him
they have gained in ability. On account of them he hss
become a broader and more versatile builder.
What one man lacked in experience, some one of ya
associates was able to supply. The problems one wa3
unable to solve, others soon found the answer for.
, That accounts for the completeness of this car. That
accounts for the fart that you will find on it the very things
that you have wished to find on an automobile. Th.it
explains why this car will do the things which other fcur
cylinder automobiles have failed to accomplish
