THE GARDEN ISLAND TUESDAY. FEBRUARY , 1916,
(Continued from page 1.)
the information on that important
matter. He explained that any
teacher havine taught thirty years,
twenty years of which must have
been in the Hawaiian Islands, af
ter she or he has paid a yearly
amount of one per cent of his or
ber yearly salary, shall be entitled
to a pension of $400 every year,
unless the salary is less than $ 1000.
He compared this law with the
pension laws in the other states
and territories, and brought out
the fact that the teachers receive
far more than they put into the
fund. He stated that compulsory
payment into the pension fund is
the most satisfactory method,
E. Allen Creevev, discussed Vo
cational Education very thorough
ly. He stated that the United
, States has been behind in many
ways in this movement and that
Germany has held the highest
lace for a number of years. He
read and explained the Vocational
Education Bill recently presented
to Congress and the results that
will follow its passing.
Manual training, the pre-vo ca
tional work, better adapts the boy
for his later life than anv other
type of school training, because it
involves the use of his head, heart
and hand. A plan is now under
consideration by which a boy may
be able to receive a-diploma, for
annual training work in the grades
that would admit him to the ad
vanced vocational schools without
his having graduated in the academ
ic subjects. This gives the boy
of small mental ability, an oppor
tunity to advance into profitable
work. In regard to the work done
on Kauai this year he said that
$800 had been spent in new equip
ment besides the tools in the Ka
uai High School. A sleeping porch
was built on the Waimea Princi
pal's cottage, during the erection
of which the boys worked by a reg
ular building schedule and kept
a week ahead of it.
In Makaweli a garden has been
planted, in Eleele the school cot
tages repaired and various ai tides
of furniture made; in Koloa lack
of a shop and equipment has pre
vented a great deal of work being
done; in Lihue, the boys of the
government school have made ar
ticles of furniture and the High
School boys have a garden and are
making their shop benches, and
in Kapaa an excellent garden is
kept up and articles of furniture
made In the shop. School kitchens
are working in the Waimea school
and olans are made to have them
in other schools.
The surprise of the afternoon
came with the last number on the
m-oeram. ''Kauai Schools before
Annexation" by Mr. W. H. Rice.
Sr. After preparing his audience
for a lengthy address, he spoke
not more than five minutes, to the
astonishment and disappointment
of his hearers. He said that the
first chool was established in 1824
and that the education was carried
on by the pupils of the missiona
ties going into the various districts
and conducting schools. In 1886
and 1890 when all able bodied men
of voting age were registered, only
two on the whole island could not
read or write in their own langu
age. One of the early English school
was established by Mr. Knudsen
of Kekaha and there was another
English school in Koloa where the
master was incapable of using cor
rect English sentences. Mr. Rice
closed his brief talk with a clever
nnprriste concerning the Utter
Previous to the tegular after
noon program, the morning pro
gram was completed, Mrs. H. C
Brown of Waimea read a paper on
Hygiene, "the most vital subject
in the grades." Hygiene should
be taught in the lower grades iu
order that it might influence the
health and strength of the children
when they are young.
Supervising Principal H. H
Brodie read a paper on Playground
English in which he advocated
that correct habits of speech could
be formed by caieful supervision
of the children's language on the
playground during their games.
The children themselves should be
taught to correct their own and
other children's mistaken, and the
ncorrect forms should never be
repeated. The teacher, however,
must be the pivot upon which all
the activities should turn, and
every teacher should systematically
fight the pidgen english on the
