III CLUB'S IDEAS
(Continued from last issue.)
The outhouses are not so sani-j ill-equipped men and womei. The
tary as they should be, 'the drain- College Club of Honolulu is pre-
age is not good, there should be
cement drains, there should be
proper places for the children to
wash in, shower-baths, and an ade
quate water supply. The present
water system is very unsatisfac
tory. Manual Training and Domes-
paring a bill to be presented at the
coming session ol the Legislature
in February, providing for the
"Health Supervision of ' School
children by means of Eye, Far and
Mouth Hygiene." It is to be known
as the Hygiene Bill, The measure
. ! CV I . a t lift ill
iic oeiene quarters snouiu ue add-, would call tor an appropriation of
ed as soon as feasible. It is to be I $5,000.00 to inaugurate the work,
regretted that the present Manual and $10,000.00 would be asked for
Training Building was constructed
in Bungalow type instead of being
a long, narrow building adopted to
such work. The grounds are too
small for all the children to plav
in at once. The boys cannot clay
ball for fear of breaking windows.
The school, so far as Buildings and
Grounds go, needs a thorough re
organization, enlarged grounds, a
new building or somewhat exten
sive changes in the present
building which would be, after
all , somewhat of a make
shift awaiting an appropriation for
a new building. It is a pleasure to
be able to announce that, through
the efforts of Mrs. Isenberg, apian
has been evolved for enlarging the
school ground to over four acres.
This will give plav-grounds for
the use of all the children and
allow a rearrangement of the build
ings. A fund will have to besecur
ed for the moving of buildings on
adjoining lots, an appropriation
from the Legislature for a new
school-building, or f o r the re
arrangement of the present build
ings and additions and improve
msuts thereto. All this will require
a carefully worked out plan. Your
Committee recommends that the
Mokihana Club give its hearty sup
port to this matter and authorize
its Committee to do what it can
toward the carrying out of this
All the schools need equipment.
None of them has anything in the
line of play-ground equipment. Re
quests were made for the following:
pictures, books, children's maga
zines, sewing materials, records,
Kindergarten supplies, a printing
box, swings, baseball equipment,
basketball court and equipment,
games of any kind, stationary, bas
ins, drinking fountains, towels,
emergency supplies, creolin, book
oases. No social-work whatever is be
ing done. Closer relations might
be established between the homes
and the schools. Mothers' Club
might be organized. There is also
great need for a wider Community
interest in the Schools. A group
of our women might mother a
Mothers' Club, we could surelv
help in securing play-ground equip
ment and other little things so
much needed. Lectures or talks or
excursions might be arranged. All
would bring great pleasure to many
little hearts. We hardly realize how
much children appreciate such
things and how much they hunger
for them. Story telling is becoming
an acknowledged art. Could not
some woman of this Community,
who has a love for children and a
natural gift for telling stories, de
vote herself to this cause, study up
on the subject, and hold perhaps a
weekly story-telling hour at the
school? Play-ground supervision is
something we hope for.
Another great field lying before
us is in the "Care for the health
and well-being of the children of
our Public Schools." The medical
examination given at present is a
brief one, directed especially a
gainst tuberculosis, trachoma, and
eczema. It is estimated that about
95 of our public school children
need dental attention, 80 have
defective hearing. At the present
time great stress is laid upon the
preventative care of children. Many
of our children are growing up with
defects which might easily be rein
ed ied if attended to now, but
which if neglected, will make them
as a contingent fund given to the
Governor to further this work.
should the expenditure of the $5,
000.000 prove the need. It is plan
ned to have specialists travel from
island to island and hold clinics in
various places. The sanction of the
Governor has been secured, and
movement is backed by such well
krown men as Mr. Babbitt, Judge
Whitney, Mr. Mctt-Smith, (Mr.
Kinnev, and Mr Thurston.. Your
Committee recommends that the
Moki liana Club give its enthusias
tic support to this measure and in
struct the legislators from this is
iand to vote for it.
Your Commissioner, Mr. Brandt,
in his address before the Teachers'
Convention, outlined a plan for
Teachers' Pensions. The principle
of pensioning teachers is one of
long and recognized standing in
Europe, is being taken up rapidly
in the United States, is in force in
the Argentine Republic, and even
in backward Mexico, It insures the
retaining in the profession of able
men and women, who now leave it
for other fields, will draw other
persons of ability to it, and by re
moving the spectre of a penniless
old age from the horizon of many
a teacher, will enable him to spend
more time in studing, traveling,
resting ana otnerwise preparing
himself for increased usefulness as
an instructor. Your committee re
commends that the Mokihana Club
give its approval of the passage of
a Pension Bill for Teachers, and
authorize consultation with M r.
Brandt in regard to the promotion
and presentation of such a bill to
the Legislature, and if such bill is
brought up at the present session,
the Mokihana Club, through its
Committee, ask all legislators from
this island to support it.
T o summarize briefly, Your
committee recommends as follows:
1. Changes in the Course of
a. A change of Readers.
b. A " " Grammar.
c. A " in the grading
2. Administrative changes:
a. Against forced promotion.
b. Principal to be given more
time for supervision.
c. Protest against lengthy
lesson plans demanded of

old system of Inspection,
abolishing the office o f
