THE GARDKtf ISLAND TUESDAY, JANUARY 20, 1914
(Continued from page 1 )
The morning session was Riven
over t o treatment b y different
teachers of methods thev had tried
and found servicable. These talks
were replete with excellent sugges
tions. It was in the afternoon, how
ever, that the "heavy" addresses,
were enjoyed. These were bv Mr.
Brandt, Mr. Raymond, Dr. Wad
man and Mr. J mid. Mr. Raymond
gave quite an interesting prelimi
nary ialk, after which he read a
paper on the subject "The Recita
tion," which will be published in
The Garden Island in full next
week. Conimissionei Brandt's ad
dress was as follows:
Mr. Brandt's Address.
After listening to so many able
and interesting talks on diverge sub
jects, I am afraid that there is only
little that I can say that would be
of any great interest or help to vou,
being a lay-man with little ex
perience i n school matters, a 1 -though
for mauv years having
watched with keen interest the
progress and development of our
schools, but as I have seen from
the program that I nm expected to
make an address her" today, I
trust that my little say will be ac
cepted as an evidence of the in
terest and pride I take in being af
filiated with some of the greatest
and most important work that a
citizen can take part in; that of
bringing u p and educating the
voting to be useiul, self-respecting
men and women, capable and will
ing to take up in time the work
and duties in life where we in due
course of time will have to entrust
them with it.
The devotion of the American
people to education is and has been
for generations most impressive
and has shown a spirit of sacrifice,
public and private of the finest
quality, and in this respect Ha
waii, far from lagging behind, has
from the time the first Mission
aries came, shown that the people
were willing, more than almost
any community, to further educa
tion at great sacrifices of personal
work as well as pecuniary means.
And the result has been that in
spite of great handicaps i n the
shaue of a large majority of alien
races to be taught in a language
unfamiliar to them, the citizens of
these islands realize that great
things have been accomplished,
and far more than sufficient to re
compensate them for sacrifices
made, and also made it a matter of
pride with our Legislators to still
furthet do everything possible for
the education of the children of
the land irrespective of race or
So many unthinking men and
women fail to realize what a stre
nuous work teaching is and rather
look upon the number o f days
where no teaching is done and the
vacation as making it in the lan
guage of the street "A soft snap"
but those that look into the matter,
find that although hours may be
comparatively short, the work is
exceedingly wearing, and also that
a teacher who expects to show re
suits and at the same time advance
him or hers.el, has a great deal of
woik to do after school hours, es
''pecially in the later years when the
demands to their efficiency and the
results expected from them have
increased so greatly.
It is not for me to oass judgment
on specific work done bv you in
your different schools, For that, I
have not had sufficient time to draw
comparisons pud notice improve
ments from time to time, but I will
say that in all schools that I have
visited, I have noticed that concien
tious, able work is being done and
that it has been an unfailing
source of pleasure to visit them.
If, however, I was to be asked
what, in mv opinion is missing to
a great extent in our schools, my
answer would be, that there is a
lack of moral force.
The children are taught to speak,
read and write and many other
things, they are taught to salute
the flag etc., but that is not suffi
cient. The lessening influence of
the Church and the very general
opinion that the home control and
training of the children leaves very
much to bu desired in our country.
Makes it more imperative than ever
that the school should step in and
undertake this work with the child
at its most impressionable time of
life. The Jesuits realize what
tremenduous power a teacher has
over a child's mind, hence the
Catholic Church's constant e n -deavor
to get control of the young
to teach them .
There are so many opportunities
in the school-room for the teacher

days ago said:
Photographer R. J. Baker gave
an interesting evening with his
pictures at the Y. M. C. A. last
night, showing a large collection
of views of the Island of Kauai.
The audience, which hllcd Cooke
Hall, was delighted with his many
views of the canyons and valleys of
the Garden Island and ihe pictures
ot native life and types. This was
a regular number of the Thursday
night lecture series.
Twelfth Night Party
One of the items, among a large
number, regrettably crowded out
of the last issue was an account of
the Twelfth Night party at the
home o f Mr. and Mrs. Harold
Morgan. It was a most enjoyable
affair, participated in by twelve
people. Dr. Glaisycr officiated as
the King. Mrs. Dean the Queen
Judge Dole the Judge and others
in various roles.
Neat cards, giving the list of
registered automobiles on the is
land of Kauai, number of machine
and name and residence of owner
have been issued by The Garden
Island Publishing Co., and are
on sale at 15 cents each, while
they last. Every auto owner and
every garage should have these
cards for ready reference.

brought over a fine 3000-11) truck
last week to show to Kauai mer
chants, lie visited most of the
towns of the island in it, and re
turned t o Honolulu Saturday
to impress upon the child's mind,
the importance of Justice and Fair
ness in all one's dealings; truthful
ness, unselfishness, selfcontrol,
kindness and to do right for right's
sake and not on account of fear of
the penalties of the law.
A systematic beginning is now
beingmadeto give "Handminded"
girls and boys in our schools as
good a chance in life as the "Lan
guage minded" have aUvavs had.
It is not necessary for me to
dwell upon the great importance of
this part of the child's education.
Sonii unthinking men and women
will call it a fad, but you may
easily ignore such criticisms.
Thousands upon thousands of men
and women will in years to come
look back upon the seeds of indus
try and self help, sown in their
voung school-days with thanks and
gratitude and no greater prize can
be wished for.
H has been a great pleasure to
me to be here today and I also
trust that you all, in addition to
having had a pleasant time, will
also carry away with you some
positive results derived from having
been here and that you will go back
to your often hard work in isolated
I and lonelv places with a feeling of

and enthusiasm for the all impor

Eleele News Notes
The big event of the week at
Klecle was the Teachers' Conven
tion. Most of the educators arriv
ed in the forenoon and departed in
the afternoon for their homes in
various parts of the island, al
though Klecle, McBryde and Ha-
napepc homes had the pleasure of
entertaining not a few of them
over night. They were very wel
come folk, and on the whole Klee
le feels foitunate in being able to
get better acquainted with the
school teachers of Kauai.
One of the real treats of the
Teachers' Convention was the wit
and wisdom of Mrs. H. C. Brown
of Waimea. This indefatigueable
head of the arrangement committee
was on the floor a number of times
and both pleased and edified by
her wholesome counsel and ready-
wit. The immensity, as well as
sincerity, of Mrs Brown's interest
in school work is almost a marvel.
Miss Helen Schimmelpfennig,
of the Koloa School, was the house
guest of Mrs. J. I. Silva at the

in the Park theater and made other

was cleared and a very enjoyable
dance program put on.

end in the interest of their reform
campaign. Thev were cordially

Judge Chas. Dole was here last
Friday with his Ford. He was
much surprised to find that he
had just turned the thousand mile
mark in the first month of owner
ship. 11c must travel a great deal.
Carl Bayer, manager of the
Makaweli Store is expected back
here on Wednesday with his new
Studebaker. Mr. Bayer is return
ing somewhat earlier than anti
cipated. There is talk here of a Ford

with the present line of auto
stages between Kekahu and Kea-lia.

Tom Gunn's flying machine
made iis first landing at Waimea,
strange to say, instead of Koloa.
It was discovered to be all in pie
ces when it struck the earth after
its rough trip which, by the way,
was on the Kiuau.
. Messrs Wadman and Judd cer
tainly made their stay in Waimea
most inspiring and helpful to the
large number of people who desire
to make life more worth living for
themselves and the community.
Their well chosen words to the
school children seem to have taken
deep root, and are not scon to be
forgotten any more than their
pleasing personality. All wish that
they might make regular circuits
of our island.
A sample day's work of the
Wadman-Judd team included
among other things, addressing the
near-bv schools, a dinner party
with their old friends, the Browns,
addressing church meetings, and
filially speaking to the Waimea Li
terary Club, before returning to
the home of their host, Mr. Au
Inspector George Raymond, of
the Department of Public Instruc
tion, was the house guest of Com
missioner Thorwald Brandt from
the close of the teachers' conven
tion Friday until his duties took
him along the line. Such a wide a
wake and keen observer and com
petent adviser will give our pro
gressive schools an added stimulus
and efficiency push.
Waimea schools has enjoyed the
calls of Clyde II. Alspaugh who
will next week begin classes here
in Manual Training for boys; of
the upper grades. He has learned
the art of motorcycle rapid transit
so that he may be able to set clas
ses to going here at eight o, clock
and do lull justice to classes in
Kleele school before the regular
session closes. He is even consi
dering an occasional stop before
lunch to train Makaweli boys in
things most practical. lie finds a
warm welcome everywhere.
