ards of the best usage. Another mat
ter that ho advocated was tho aband
onment of tho spelling book, and of
formal grammar. Ho begged that a

tho Golden Treasury reader and
make a good bonfire of them In tho
public park. They were a detriment
to tho causo of education. This prop
osition tho audience heartily approved
as was shown by their generous ap
plause. Mr. Lydgatc, as. an Interested visi
tor, begged tho favor of a few words
of dissent. First ho wished to disBcnt
from tho implication that tho teachers
had not been doing their duty in tho
matter of teaching English, or that
they had failed to emphasize tho im
portance of it. He was satisfied that
they had spared no effort in this
direction, and that thoy deserved a
word of encouragement and apprecia
tion. He also begged to dissent from
tho last speaker in regard to high
brow English. What we want for
every day life is colloquial English,
and tho fault ho had to find withtho
English of many of the school grail
utes was just that pedantic highbrow
quality. For an example, "I am tho
personality appertaining to number
112," instead of simply "number 112."

Miss Payne of Wailua, deplored tho
existence of Japanese schools in every
district. They took tho time, and
sapped tho strength and distracted
tho attention of tho children, bo that
many of them weren't much good in
tho public school. This is a part of
America nnd our education should bo
thoroughly American. Theso Japan
ese schools aro a constant back-pros-suro
against Americanism nnd they
should bo dono away with.
Mr. Huber craved a final word. Ho
emphasized tho Importance of always
using good English. Avoid "pidgin"
talk of any kind. Avoid slang, avoid
slovenly ungrammatical language.
Talk as you would talk If you know It
was all to be reported and printed. In
this way your children will havo tho
constant influence of n good examplo
