A constitution committee ' for tho
principals' association was then ap
pointed consisting of H. S. Simpson,
Mrs. Charlotte Lai and Miss Carrie
Thompson. On motion it was decid
ed to hold the next meeting at Lihue
on a date to be arranged later.
Following these items f business.
various questions pertaining to school
administration and student welfare
were proposed and ardently discussed.
In the main there was little dissen
sion on the subjects presented, Indi
cating the sympathetic and united
policy of the Kauat educators. Mr.
McCluskey spoke on the preparation
of pupils In the grades for advanced
instruction leading up to high school.
He also spoke of the necessity for
better housing facilities for Kauai
High School students. Miss Elsie
Wilcox corroborated the sentiments
expressed by Mr. McCluskey.
Mr. Raymond, of Kapaa school com
mended the demonstration of physi
cal education at Makawell school
just preceding the meeting. He told
of similar work being done at Kapaa
and said it was Important in such
work to insist on every teacher par
ticipating in the conduct of physical
drill. He also suggested the need for
more helpful literature for the teach
ers, particularly the subject matter of
the Educational Review. He also
plead for clarity of printed instruct
Ions to teachers coming from the Ter
ritonai Department. This led to a
general discussion of the subject of
reporting pupils by racial descent and
The principals were generally
agreed that "nationality" In the sense
meant in their reports refers continu
ally to racial descent and not to
"citizenship," which Is a different
matter. Resentment was expressed
at the names and phrases too fre
quently used by public speakers and
the press in referring to pupils by im
plication as being- other than Ameri
can citizens. Striking instances of
this abuse were given and It was final
ly decided to appoint a committee to
draft letters from time to time in
courteous form that should be sent
to the local newspapers requesting
their unqualified support In correct
ing this tendency. The task of
Americanization in these Islands is
greatly Increased by the careless bab
it of prominent citizens in apparently
evading the fact that island-born
children of whatever race are Ameri
can citizens by every right. The prin
cipals also seemed to place sincere
confidence In the loyalty of these in
Mr. Brodie presented a chart of
Interesting statistics designed to show
the gradual diminution of numbers of
pupils approaching the eighth grade
and inquiring for the reasons why
comparatively few of those who enter
school attain the eighth grade. Opin
ion was divided as to the value of
the data presented in reaching a Just
conclusion, but Mr. Brodie's suggest
ions opened up an important subject
for further study.
By motion, Miss Hundley, Miss Wil
cox and Mr. Creevey were elected
members of the principals' associa
tion. Mi; Bush called attention to a
Berious error of the department In
the last examination questions in
which two of the questions could only
apply to work remaining to be cover
ed in the second term. His objection
was unanimously sustained.
In general, however, tho principals
expressed themselves as inclined to
forgive mistakes probably due to the
adjustments necessary to a new ad
ministration of the department, and
indicated their loyalty to the newly
appointed Ik ad.

of the Makaweli teachers, graciously
