this fee, but the first part of the

The nationalities represented are
-as follows: 30 of American and
European parentage, 2 Chinese, 6
Japanese, and 7 Hawaiians or Part
The cost of instructing the 45
pupils was $3700, of which the
community, or patrons of the
school, paid $900 and the Depart
ment of Publfc Instruction, $2800.
The cost of instruction at Punahou
Schools would have been $2580 for
these pupils. With a fair estimate
of the cost of transportation, board,
supplies, etc.. the net gain to the
community has been considerable.
But thl greatest gain has been in
having the children at home and
in giving them the benefits of home
training without interfering with
their school interests and opportu
nities. Following is a statement of the
tuition accounts in the Grammar
Received from tuition $843.00
Paid Teacher's Salary 675.00
Balance on hand 168.00
Accounts outstanding 108.00
It would be hichly desirable to
have all tuition paid strictly in ad
vance and eliminate the difficulty
of collecting accounts.
This year six pupils will finish
the eighth grade and will not pay,
tuition even if they continue their
High School work here. The law
provides that all instruction in the
High School shall be free. If there
is a large number of pupils to en
ter the grades the tuition will be
lower than this year, but I believe
that, with increased expenses, it
should be about the same.
On Maui, where they have a
school of the same kind, and with
the same arrangement for paying
an additional teacher, the patrons
have provided liberally enough to
secure certain things needed for
the school. Among these are a set
of Encyclopaedia Brittanica, and a
piano. By raising a fund of $50
to $100 in addition to the teacher's
salary, we could provide equip
ment for the olavcround and for!
games, tools for manual training, for your support and interest, and
nnd meet other exnenses which i respectfully solicit a continuance
have been borne by the faculty this of the same.

SCOPE O F WORK
We are trying to make our work
of such a standard that our pupils
will be welcome in any institution
of the same class to which they
may wish to transfer, and that
thev may transfer without loss of
standing. We have had two pu
pils transfer to Punahou, and one
to McKinley High, who have not
only maintained their standing but
are making excellent records. So
long as the pupils live up to the
recommendations of the Principal,
there will be no difficulty in res

In the High School we are able
to offer thorough college prepara

are among those that will be offer

Ferdinand, King of Roumania, or Rumania whom this morning's
wireless says has negotiated a secret treaty with Germany and Austria
to remain neutral until 1920. Indications, up to a few days ago were
that Roumania would enter the war on the side of the Allies, and the
announcement of neutrality, if officially confirmed, will doubtless be
one of the surprises of the war. Roumania is bound in many ways to
Russia. At the same time, the Queen of Roumania is not Russian in
sentiment, perhaps, she being Princess Marie, of Saxe-Coburg and
Gotha; and if the ladies have as much swing in Russia as in some
parts of- Hawaii, th? Queen probably has had a good deal to do with
this latest move,
