As Indicative of the very serious
situation which confronts the public
schools of Hawaii and the entire Unit
ed States, the public will be interested
in the following statement Issued by a
great conference of State Superin-i
tendents of Fublic Instruction which
met in New York City last month:
By vote of those pre3ent the follow
lnging statement was prepared for
Reports from .the various states In
dicate that the shortage of teachers
has reached a most critical stage, and
that reniediea muBt be found and
Adopted or it Is certain that many
more public schools must be closed.
To this end there must be material
increase hi teachers' salaries and a
'horough reorganization of the means
The public schools' of the Nation
are facing a critical situation. In the
states of the Atlantic seaboard hund
reds of schools are closed because
teachers are not available for them.
There are being employed as teachers
large numbers of persona who do not
possess the qualifications that have
Jfitherto been required. A loss of
students in the state normal schools,
amounting to twenty-five, thirty and,
in some states, fifty per cent, indi
cates that young persons are turning
their attention to other occupations
than teaching. Commercial and in
dustrial opportunities are not only
.attracting teachers from the schools,
but they are drawing away from sup
ervisory positions in education those
fupon whom reliance for leadership
should be placed.
Education, as the chief concern of
the people, related closely to their
every social, civic and industrial en
terprise, must have at once the seri
ous attention of all citizens, to the
end that the compensation of teachers
be established on such a plane as will
attract into and hold in all schools,
rural, village and city; competent in
structors of youth; that a high stand
ard of professional qualification In
the schools be assured, that there be
suitable encouragement to young men
and women to enter upon the work of
teaching; that power, initiative and
skill be retained in supervisory posi
tions. I The pressing problems of the pres
ent time, the settlement of the new
Issues of the immediate future, de
mand from the people that public
education be not permitted to suffer
any lapse. It is a paramount duty of
the local communities, of the state
and of the Nation, each in its appro
priate way, to prepare forthwith to
meet the necessities of this most ur

Flu Mortality Figures
In the great influenza plague which
spared no country of the world in its
last visitation, the mortality while
severe everywhere was very unevenly
The Saskatchewan Indians lead oft
wiih a mortality which is phenomenal
and far out runs all others, viz 65 in a
thousand of population.
British India comes next with 20
per thousand. The American Army
at home about 14 per thousand, while
the Armerican Army in Europe lost
pnly about half as heavily or 7 per
