steads appeared before the Board
and asked for the building and

nection a request (P 1546) from
Miss Hundley, supervising princi
pal, for the construction of new
class rooms at Mana, Kekahn,

lauea and Hanalei; a kitchen for
Kapaa; and teachers cottages at
Makaweh and Lihue; also for the
replacing of the Ilanamaulu and
Kilauea school buildings, was read
by the chair.
Hon. E. A. Knudsen, Com
missioner of Public Instruction, not
only recommended the construction
of new school buildings but favored
the building of large school houses
instead of one room schools.
The expenditure called for the
buildings needed was certainly a
large one and the chair deemed it
best to havo a committee appointed
to make a general survey of the
finances of the County and submit
a report at the next meeting show
ing the county probable income and
expenditures for tle balance of the
year before the Board take any
action on this matter. This recom
mendation was accepted. The
committee appointed were Messrs
T. Brandt, A. Menefoglio, and W

residence for a Filipino club house.
The Koloa Japanese Church secured
black boards and tables for the night
school held there.
At our request Lihue Plantation
erected a club house in their-Filipino
camp. Grove Farm plantation
has provided a room in their new
Filipino camp for the Association
club and has consulted us on the
plans for the hall to be erected in
their new model camp. A club
house and athletic field is to be pro
vided for Ilanamaulu. The Associa
tion does not claim credit for all
these material advances but feels
that it bad a share in stimulating
them. Many of the club houses
erected In the camps are used as
social centers and churches.
SOME THINGS ACCOMPLISHED
Night school clr.zses , hr.vo Icon
conducted in ten centers. Twenty
eight teachers were . used. There
were thirteen English classes for
Filipinos, ten tor Japanese and four
classes in mechanical drawing and
shop mathamatics. A total of 327
students were enrolled. These class
es were held In two Japanese Lan
guage School buildings, two Christ
ian Japanese Churches, four public
schools and Jn five club houses or
rooms furnisbel by the plantations.
Club reading rooms and individual
members have been supplied with
public library books, illustrated
magazines and newspapers. - Tho
Lihue Filipino club subscribes for
and keeps on file in its club house
several newspapers and magazine?
published in the Philippines. Literery
programs and debates have been
held. Men like pictures. Many illus
trated historical and educational talks
have been give 1. The Association's
moving picture machine has been
used with success where electric cur
rent is available. Thrift Is being
emphasized in the clubs by means of
talks and illustrated posters.
Practically all the boys and young
men respond to an athletic program.
Volley ball has been introduced in all
the clubs and proves to be the best
all-round game available. Soccer,
basketball and track athletics have
also been used. Last summer the
Filipinos of Lihue, Koloa. MeBryde
and Makaweli had an outdoor ath
letic contest which kept interest in
the clubs at white heat. Metal badges
were awarded at the close of the sea
son to those who score the required
number of points. At the present
time the schools on the Waimea side
are having a series of volley ball
match games. The teams are trans
ported from school to school in the
"Y" Ford. A number of Saturday
hikes have been conducted. Talks
on hygelne and health have been
given. Many of our foreign born
brothers need to be taught the A. B.
Cs. of right living.
The practice of having frequent
socials, entertainments, concerts and
public meetings has been continued.
The church socials have been especi
ally helpful. The club orchestras
and the occasional get-to-gethers of
the clubs from all over the island
have had worth-while socializing el
fects. Individual men have formed
friendships in the night school classes,
the club meetings and in the club
houses that have had much to do
with their having good times together
that were helpful instead of harm
ful. This is specially true of the
Filipinos who are mere boys and
strangers in a strange land.
Special religious meetings for older
boys and young men hae been pro
moted. A number of important con- j
ferences for older boys and young
men have been held. The one led by
Mr. Horn of the Honolulu Army and j
Navy Y. M. C. A. last summer at
Kukuilono Park was inspiring and !
helped the young men who attended
it and took part in discussions. The
secretaries have given much time to
distinctly church work and have" help
ed organize the Japanese Sunday
Schools on an English basis. Person
al helpful religious interviews have
been hold with the leading boys of
each group. The object in all of our
work is to relate all the Association
activities in a way that the boys and
young men may be led to dedicate
their lives to the service of their
Lord and Master.
