THE GARDEN ISLAND, TUESDAY, JANUARY 19, 1915
THE GARDEN ISLAND
Issued Every Tuesday Morning
Luther Dermont Timmons
Tlie first cost of such foundations would be considerable, stir
;biit in the long run they wouid be so much cheaper than the upkeep of
' the present streets that comparison would make previous efforts at
( road-humbug appear as ridiculous bov's play.
The concrete foundation should have a thin coating of some sub-
I stance ak:n to a.sphaltum to give it the proper spring.
The Teachers' Convention
The annual convention of teachers last Friday was a most inter
esting function and it is to be hoped that much good 'may come of it.
Certainly it helps to have teachers get together, compare notes and
touch shoulders ence in awhile, Again, the addresses, which come in
til.' afternoon, arc invariably treighied with healthful suggestions.
And speaking of addresses, t he one delivered by Mr. Ravmond at
the session just held was of such pointed and immediate value that we
are reproducing it in full iti connection with the write-up ot the j ro
eeediugs of the convention. It is well worth reading carefully by
teachers and also by patrons of the public schools.
Many points in it might come in for extensive editorial comment,
and some of the more itupoitant mav be treated from time to time.
We wish for the moment, however, to confine our attention to the
single one in regard to the teaching of English in the schools, and
speak ot it trom the standpoint ot the business man. who must
employ the boys (rnd in some instances, the girls as well ) behind
store counters, as outside salesmen or in offices.
It is a notorious fact that employees, coming nom the public
schools, who have been reared in other than strictly English speaking
homes, fall down badlv -and sadlv in business calling for anything
like an accuater knowledge ot bit .! sh. On account of that failing

Then you would have vonr perfect road, suitable foreverv kind of'
traffic. The onlv exp.-nse of its nutkeep in a life-time would be in the,
renewal of the top coating, or cushion, which would cost verv little.
In her street making schemes Honolulu has listened too often and I
attentively to theorists from I'oriunk and Milpitas, aim has not yet
gotten right down to the practical phases of the problem. When we
hear that the citv has thrown all thought of the initial cost to '.he wind
and decided to construct permanent streets upon' the lines above
suggested, we shall feci that Honolulu is at last on the riplit tack in
the effort to provide hers.-lf with thoroughfares befitting her spirit of
progress and recognized beautv.
I ins addkkss before the Teachers' Convention at Kapaa last
Eri.lav Commissioner 13r.in.lt said: "There has been ot late a ten
dency to put too hr-avv a load on the teachers in the shape of more or
less unnecessary work in the wav of reports, and an ever increasing
amount ot woik to be donafter school hours of a nature that is of
verv little benefit to them in their work." We have had identically
this opinion tor a long time, but had assumed that all this alter
hour work was i part of he svster.i of the Department of Education.
tolSurelv if it is merely a local affair, a better arrangement is easilv pes
sible. But how about thoc mid-term examinations? Thev are a
hobby, as we understand it, of the Department itself, and vet form
the worst nuisance of" the year, perhaps, in the schools and really
result in little.

Motion Pictures In Schools
Dissenters from the idea of introducing the motion picture into
the schools of the- Islands as an aid to the present method of impart-'
ing knowledge are just now more or less gleefully referring to tht-
report ot a school in the ast which ins tried and given up the motion 1
picture scheme as being impracticable. I
And why iiupracticab! Because, adds the rtport, of the danger;
from fire. '
The- d inger from firl Heaven save lis! j
The greit value ot the motion picture is admitted, but its ad van-1
tages mav not be availed of on account of the din'-r from firel j
When steam first came into r.sj for large purposes there were fre-i
quent explosions of boilers, and in i::v r.ieii lost their lits as a result. ;
But did the work of 'ouildiug railroads and :e:.insh:ps stop on that
account? Most certainly i-ot. The t i.i Lir, set at out to mi::im:ze
the danger, and kept on with the great work ahead The results are!
recognized by everybody todav .
There is a certain amount of danger in the ni'.tion picture tip :
paratus now being ge-ne-alh' employed in the theaters, but it is being)
rapidiv reduced, and is even now scarce!-.' worth lucntioninjr. Motion i
picture show houses have hi en ra

years or more and we have v et to hear of an accidmt ot cons, qr.t-nce.
