On the twelfth of October.
Columbus Day, the first flay was
raised over the Kauai High and
Grammar School. The exercises in
connection with the event were at
tended bv a representative gather
ing ol Kauai people, many ot
whom had not visited the building
since the davs of courts and juries.
Kveryone expressed surprise that
the building had been so well ar
ranged to meet its new duties, and
I seemed pleased with the interest
jand spirit shown by thepu- ilsdur
I ing the program.
Less than a year ago the estab
lishment of the High School was
a debatable question. Act 160,
j"To Kstablish the Kauai High
School-', was approved by Govern
or Prear on the 30th. day of April,
1913, but the selection of a site
and the possibility of failure caus
ed considerable discussion many j
doubted and some even opposed
the subject. j
However, the High School sup-J
porters persisted in their efforts
and in Mav, 1914, Mr. Kinney, the
newlv appointed Superintendent
of Public Insttuction. met with the
people of Kauai to consider the
matter. A plan was finally agreed
upon and a site elected. The Li
hue Select School was to combine
with the High School under the
name "Kauai High and Grammar
School," and the community was
to pay the salary of one teacher.
The old court house, with its spa
cious and well-kept Grounds, was
selected as the site for the new
After this, there followed a
period of uncertainty as to how
many pupils would attend the
school. No one seemed willing to
state definitely their plans for their
children. The most optimistic man
in the Island thought there might
be foitv if a dormitory were pro
vided, but no one believed him and
he doubted it himself.
The school opened on the 14th
of September with a principal and
two assistants on the teaching staff.
Thirty-one pupils were enrolled
the first clay. The work was soon
organized and the students enter
ed into the various activities with
spirit and enthusiani. With a
small number to choose from thev
developed a baseball team which
has won consistently from other
teams, and which would rank well
with the teams of larger schools on
the other islands. They have also
maintained a high standard of
scholarship and have shown an
admirable spirit in promoting the
interests and welfare of th" school.
Seven pupils have entered since
the opening day, which makes the
total enrollment 38. The Depart
ment of Public Instruction is plan
ning increased" equipment for the
school. New buildings and more
teachers will be added during the
coining two years provided the
growth of the school is in accord
with present prospects. Next fall
typewriters will be installed for
the High School business course,
and laboratory equipment for the
sciences in college preparatory and
There is, however, one great
question to be settled, and that is
in regard to caring for students
from other parts of the Island.

There are young people who would
like to attend the school, and whose
parents would like to have them
remain on this Island, but until a
building is provided for a dormi
tory and boarding club for stud
ents this need cannot be met. One
family has very generously opened
its doors to two boys for the past
two or three months. One or two
others have found places to board.
We need, however, at the present
time a place where boys can se
cure board at a reasonable price,
and be within walking distance of
the school. A vear ago things
seemed too uncertain to .warrant
action, but we believe there is a
real need right now, and that this
need will be even greater when
school begins again in September.
We believe that the High School
can do thorough and efficient w rk,
and we want as many as possible
to share in its advantages. The
support it has received thus far
has exceeded expectations, and
the prospects for a steady and
healthy growth are bright. Con
tinued loyalty and co operation
will solve the problems that con
front us, and establish the High
School as one of our nios-t useful
and successful institutions.
