Ik en due to getting a more liberal
supply from the States, but chiclly
to our Honolulu Normal, which
turns out a very efficient primary

pils, or forty-one to the teacher; we
now have 3775, or thirty-eight per
teacher. We had no eighth grade
in ''7, while we have .sixty-seven in
that grade now. Last year we add
ed, a high school and a vocational
training teacher. Our pupil body,
which was diversified then by hav
ing 1 lawaiians, part - 1 lawaiiaiis,
Americans, liritish. Germans, Scan
dinavians. Trench, Portuguese, Jap
ve.e, Chinese and South Sea I sl
.jfders, has been further diversified
Yiy the addition of lilipinos, Rus
sians, Porto Kicans, Koreans and
Spanish. There is little difference
to be noted in all foreign races.
They hold the Anglo-Saxon-Teutonic
races level in school work. We
have a nice body of children to
work with, neither child nor parent
giving opjMisition, which is o dif
ferent than it is in the States. Pu
pils have left Kauai and have en-
tered school in Honolulu, where
they fully bold their own. W'e have
even had them outer university
