the school system of Hawaii h.icl
led the way for all America in the
matter of tho correlation of language
study with nature study, the com

many, however, and being the tar
got for a great deal of criticism
says tho Advertiser. The recent at
tack made upon the "course of
study"' had for its basis the criti
cisms advanced against the nature
study course, although those who
had instituted tho course and wore
defending it explained, over and
over again, the twofold object aimed
at. As a result of the criticisms,
the course was recently eliminated
by name and partially wiped out.

of modem school practise is how to

to disconnected tasks, and dissipat

such an extent that the process of
educatioh is hindered rather than

and modernize the courses of study
The solution of tho problem lies
in a closer correlation of subjects
and especially of formal subjects
. with content subjects, and it is for
tunate that when the correlation is

either alone. TIub is especially
true of language, tho most effective

Professor Loiper, in developing
his theme, takes practically the
same ground as that taken by tho
advocates pf the nature study course

that on the mainland "public opi

and that "tho time seems not far
distant when all'Statcs will demand

chairs and lounges will freshen up

DukcKahanamoku had a great
trip around tho group, and he did
some line swimming in order .to
please his friends. At Puuneno,
Duke covered 75 yards in 41 sec

limit even then. He did one lap
25 yards in 10 -1-5 seconds.
The only criticism that might bo
extended to Duke's exhibition, is
that what he calls the "Australian
Crawl" is not, the real dope. Duko
makes it too "splashy" a stunt.
